How far would you go to keep your heart’s desire?
Previously in The Phoenix Decree Saga…
Devon’s pursuit of his beloved Elz led him from his castle in nineteenth-century England to a nightclub in twenty-first-century America.
Elz danced before me. I watched her. Encouraged by her inviting movements, my heart was beating a damn hole in my chest, and I gave in to the two feelings consuming me—arousal and gratitude.
~ Devon Phoenix, Marquess of Phoxdale
And now the saga continues…
Devon’s presence in modern-day Boston has roused the enemy who now stalks Elz.
Devon and Elz become entwined, body and soul, but secrets still loom. Elz needs answers. Devon, imprisoned by his vow to keep quiet, must fight his desire to give them. All he can offer is his protection and his love. But the shackles of silence could leave Elz vulnerable to the enemy.
Devon has recruited Jarrett Phoenix, the current Marquess of Phoxdale, to help on his mission. Though Jarrett is a good ally, he incorporates his own agenda, and the car-racing playboy attempts to seduce Elz’s best friend, the ever-cautious Jaymi. But Jaymi longs for more than Jarrett offers. The four spend the summer together, and tensions climb, as Jaymi is an unwilling candidate in Jarrett’s games.
Will Jarrett’s fear of love keep his heart from running the course and winning the prize? And will Devon comprehend too late the real threat he faces when fighting the rival who will stop at nothing to take Elz from him?
The future holds the answers…or…does the past?

Overall rating 3.7 Let me just start with the great things about this tale. The characters are amazing and played their romantic roles wonderfully. The mature scenes were on point, pure heat blazing off the pages. I could really envision this storyline as a daytime soap opera. The love the spans across all time barriers. I really found each scene and scenario well thought out. I am positive readers looking for a book concentrating on romance would be elated to read this series!
Learning about the other "man" intent on having Elz as his own is fascinating. I am loving this series so much. Time travel and other paranormal elements make it right up my alley.
Phoenix Unbound picks up where The Phoenix Decree left off. That said, you must start with book one. This book is a captivating and very intertaining read. I could not put it down for a second. The charaters continue to hold your attention throughout this continuation of their story as they did in book one. I can't wait to see where this story takes us next. I just loved this book so much. A must read for sure!! *I was given an e-copy in exchange for an honest review*
I dont do low stars often but sometimes its needed unfortunately. This book didnt do anything for me. I read the first one and it was ok but kinda slow. This wasnt much different. A bit boring. There's just too much information dumped and its hard to find the direction of the story and characters. Sorry.
This is book 2 of a 4 book series. You must start at book one. In book 1, Devon found that an enchanted mirror in his home has the ability to show you your one true love. The problem is, Devons one true love lives in the future. He spends years watching her in the mirror, heartbroken that he can't reach her until he finds out that he can. The book ends at him time traveling to her time right before a tragic incident is about to happen that he is desperate to prevent. Book 1 ends with them finally meeting. Book 2 starts off exactly were they leave off in book 1. Devon and Elz have finally met in person and Devon not only learns that Elz has been dreaming of him but has heard his voice when he watched her in the mirror. Now they have found out that someone else wants Elz and Devon must keep her safe. I'm truly enjoying this series so far! This is a paranormal time travel series with a unique story line. POV's from both Devon and Elz. There is also another love match going on between Devon's sister and his best friend. I'm looking forward to continuing on to book 3. ARC provided by NetGalley.
