Ramsay’s voice was quiet behind her, peaceful, and yet a little sad. “My dad brought me here when I was little. The only time I remember ever having him to myself. Eryx and I had fought about something, a worse blow up than normal. Dad thought me having a place to go and gather my thoughts might be in the best interest of the whole castle.”
Trinity paced her breathing and kept her eyes locked on the majestic sun as it tipped into the teal water. She could see this sight tomorrow, or the day after, but the story bubbling up from Ramsay’s memory was huge. The intensity of it crackled and snapped around her.
“Aside from Eryx, I’ve never brought anyone here, and even he has only been a time or two.” He pulled in a slow breath. “It was the only thing I had of my dad I didn’t have to share with anyone else.” His fingers tightened on her shoulders. “I wanted to share it with you.”
Honest to God, a battering ram couldn’t have impacted her senses more than his simple, heart-felt gift. She was dumbfounded. Too stunned and humbled to formulate even the basest response.
“Look at it, Trinity. That sunset is the same impression you made on me the first time I saw you. Powerful. Colorful. Bright and warm.” He slid his hands around her waist and wrapped her up tight, his mouth at her ear. “Every time I see or think of you, this is what fills me.”
She tried to turn, her body and senses clamoring for eye contact. To anchor herself in his steel-gray eyes.
He stopped her with a flex of his arms. “Not yet. I need you to watch it until it’s gone. To know that it’s the last sunset you’ll see without a mate. And know that the sunrise we watch tomorrow will be ours.”
Waking Eden by Rhenna Morgan is the third book in The Eden Series. This book should not be read as a standalone, you will need to read them in order to fully understand what is going on.
Ramsay Shantos is forced to hunt words and legends instead of rebels. He is a sexy alpha who is good at playing the part of the playboy but on the inside is confused and somewhat frightened to find his mate and change his way of life. When sexy librarian Trinity Blair comes into his life Ramsay falls hard and fast.
Trinity is an anomaly. Due to her mixed heritage and special gift she can’t touch anyone without her mind seeing all that person’s dark secrets. This has left Trinity lonely and longing for intimacy and the casual touch of another person until she meets Ramsay. Ramsay is somehow immune to Trinity’s gift and as she finds herself falling for the sexy man she finds herself wondering if this is fate throwing them together or if Ramsay is the dangerous crossroad her father has always warned her about.
I really enjoyed these two characters and look forward to reading more from this author. I would recommend this book and series to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance.
I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.
