Ever think Scrooge had it right before the ghosts ruined his life? Meet Aidan O’Conner.
At one time he was a world-renowned celebrity who gave freely of himself and his money without wanting anything in return... until those around him took without asking.
Now Aidan wants nothing of the world – or anyone who’s a part of it.
When a stranger appears at his doorstep, Aidan knows he’s seen her before...in his dreams.
Born on Olympus as a goddess, Leta knows nothing of the human world. But a ruthless enemy has driven her from the world of dreams and into the home of the only man who can help her: Aidan. Her immortal powers are derived from human emotions – and his anger is just the fuel she needs to defend herself...
One cold winter’s night will change their lives forever...
Trapped together in a brutal winter storm, Aidan and Leta must turn to the only power capable of saving them – or destroying them both: trust.
This is one of those books that seemed rushed to me (sorry if it wasn’t), though it was a great book, really, much more the second time round then this one.
So it’s about a human (famous one) that has been betrayed by his brother—it’s just much one of those born jealous ones, and they don’t really do much for me, I just don’t like that type of hatred.
Any so his brother is in jail for most of what he done to him. anyway, so his brother (who blame the man he ruined for everything (see just don’t get it, like I do, but don’t) and summons a demon god to kill his brother—which is where Leta comes in, and like always the in fight, then out fight as they fall in love.
It’s a really nice tale but there was just something that seemed as if it didn’t really hold anything, as if she was just writing it because she needed a book rather than her care for them at the time. There just didn’t seem to hold the same amount of love, as others of her books.
This book also holds 3 short story type things about the others in the Dark-Hunter series, the characters we know and love—it shows us how they celebrated the Christmas holiday.
This read: another for my week. A book that was a lot better this read then the first one. mostly because I could get rid of the point that it just seemed rushed.
This time round, I knew this fact, and still I saw it. It’s not like there was another missing, but....I don’t know, it just....
Anyway, the whole dream land they went into was cool and the people in there as well, I would tell you there names, but I can’t remember. Though I loved the odd rhymes that seemed to mean nothing unless you spoke it upside down or something.
Anyway, it wasn’t one of my fav’s and really, until a much later book, it doesn’t really need to be read, but if you’re a fan, it’s worth it, maybe, I guess.
