Publication Date & Length: August 8, 2012 – 233 pgs
Morgorth is a mage on the planet Karishian. There is little he hates more than the Stones of Power — gemstones infused with magick by the first seven mages ever born. So when a sorcerer gets hold of a major stone, a ruby, Morgorth has no choice but to go after him. But, to his irritation, he is not alone. Aishe is a dialen whose tribe was massacred by the sorcerer, and is now on a mission of vengeance. The attraction is instant between them, but Morgorth keeps his distance. Because of a traumatic childhood and a deadly destiny, he has no desire for emotional complications. But Aishe’s very presence challenges Morgorth’s resolve.
Not only does Morgorth begin to admire Aishe’s strength and intelligence, but he begins to see Aishe as a friend. As their hunt continues and their time together lengthens, their bond deepens, as does Morgorth’s fear. If he becomes the monster that destiny claims he will, will he hurt Aishe? Will he harm the one person who sees right through him? Who accepts him wholeheartedly? Determined to not let that happen, Morgorth keeps Aishe at a distance, but when Aishe is kidnapped by the sorcerer, what will Morgorth do to get him back?
Loved this world M.D. Grimm created in this book!
Morgorth is a powerful mage who is a loner due to his childhood and the way he was raised he prefers to not have any emotional entanglements. So he likes being feared and not being close with anyone else.
Well that was true until he meets Aishe who is a dialen on a quest to avenge his family and his tribes deaths. Let’s just say as soon as Morgorth meets Aishe he has a instant attraction to him but he fights it.
I have to say I loved the way this author wrote this story and these characters. From the moment I started this book I could not put this book down.
You get so much action and angst but you also get the sweet when Morgorth finally stops fighting his feelings. Then there was the steam which was so hot between these two men. I honestly can not wait to read the next book in this series.
All together I really loved this book!
I would definitely recommend this book!
