    If you like adult paranormal romance, you MUST read this one!

    If you like adult paranormal romance, you MUST read this one!

    Touched By Lightning was a touching, action packed, adrenaline filled, super sexy paranormal read meant only for adult eyes.

    I must mention that there are some unpleasant happenings in this book They are not overly detailed though. :-)

    Once upon a time, there was an orphan being raised by nuns. Gyda always felt like she didn't belong but had nowhere else to go. She was tormented by the other children at school, especially one in particular. One day while hiding from the kids, an evil man with the power to render her helpless, captured her.

    She suffers for many years and then is rescued by some members of the Order of Themis. Unfortunately by the time that happens, she is not the same sane girl.

    Brit feels an instant attraction the first time he sees her even though she is in a precarious predicament.

    Those two are combustible together. ;-) Brit is so sweet, strong, stable, honorable... I could go on and on. I love his character!

    This was a page turner that had my rapt attention from start to finish. I hardly put it down.

    This book was awesome! It had mystery, suspense, danger, action, steamy scenes, romance, scarred and complex characters, a slew of new types of supernatural beings, and an ending that will leave you begging for more!

    No it is not a cliff hanger it is just a really good incentive to keep thinking about this series!

    If you like adult paranormal romance, you MUST read this one!

    I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I thought it was fan-freaking-tastic!

    The first book in the Love¿s Defenders series is a thrilling act

    The first book in the Love’s Defenders series is a thrilling action packed and emotionally captivating paranormal romance.  I was totally mesmerized by this story and had to finish it, no matter the tears that came to my eyes at some points and some of the emotionally disturbing subject matter.  I was very impressed with how the author handled the subject and combined it with a surprising and interesting outcome for the young woman. Along with all the great characters that caught my interest, the world itself is fascinating and I definitely will be looking for the next book in the series.
