A beautifully written, enthralling paranormal romance…
Populated by vampires, wolves, and the supernatural, Son’s first in the series is marked by thorough characterization and a page-turning plot. Damina Nicaud, a successful art buyer in Washington, D.C., has been plagued by haunting dreams of a mysterious stranger. Finding herself heartbroken a day before her wedding, Damina escapes to New Orleans to take on a professional assignment. But fate has something else in store for her: she finds herself fall for a mysterious stranger while secrets of her supernatural ancestry unravel gradually. Can love be powerful enough to awaken the ancient powers lying dormant? After an opener that smoothly introduces the heroine, multiple plot lines unfold as hidden secrets of Damina’s ancient ancestry are revealed. The story’s crux, the supernatural component that involves Damina’s haunting—and continuous—dreams, stays in the background initially, assigning both the intrigue and the suspense to Damina’s tale. Beautifully blending aspects of contemporary into paranormal and romance, Son heightens the excitement with her smoothly moving narrative and crisp prose, keeping the reader thoroughly invested in the story. The details of the sensual, clean romance are memorable (the romance between Damina and her unlikely companion is sweetly tantalizing), and Son in this first installment does a lot to emphasize the emotions and interactions between her protagonists, making this impressive read a brilliant series opener. The satisfying conclusion successfully sets up the stage for the next installment in the series. Readers hoping for a well-constructed paranormal romance will be greatly rewarded.
