My first review in a long time.... 

I really loved this series, and this book!  Chase... oh my lord Chase!!  YUM-MY!

So, for my first review in a very long time, I am happy it was a book that kept me wanting more.  You meet Morgan in Gifted, and you know that she has certain gifts, but she doesn't know why.  

She is set to attend the Gifted Ball with her boyfriend Chase, but is worried about her grandfather making an appearance.  Her worries comes to fruition as that is exactly what happens.  Facing the fear of something happening to the people she cares about, she is forced to go with him.  Hoping that Chase will find her in time.

As I said, for my first book review in a very long time, I am happy it was this book.  I love Morgan, and I love her friends she makes at her school.  When she finds herself alone, that is when she finds friends who are there for her.  She is slowly finding herself, and finding out who is important to her.

This is one book that I will definitely read again! 



I’d found a bathroom halfway down the hall and was on my way back toward the stairs when I heard a thud in a room to my right. At first glance nothing seemed out of order. Not wanting to be intrusive, I turned back toward the party. However, a hand clapped over my mouth, stopping me dead in my tracks. My grandfather stepped out of the shadows of the room.

“Come with us quietly and no one will get hurt.” Stephen’s eyes flared even brighter in warning.
           
 “You wouldn’t,” I started to argue muffled by the hand behind me but knew I’d lost that argument the moment my voice cracked.

Rylan’s warm breath was in my ear and I couldn’t quite pinpoint which emotion it elicited.

“Don’t give me any reasons to hurt him,” he whispered, and I knew without a doubt he meant Chase.
Part of me knew I should fight, that no one downstairs would want me to surrender no matter the cost … but another part, a much larger part, still felt the need to protect Chase. I’ll also admit that some of that was selfishness, too. I knew leaving with them could put myself in jeopardy but the possibility of having some of my questions answered was too tempting. I really didn’t believe my grandfather would hurt me. Rylan, however, I was undecided about. He seemed perfectly fine with shredding my soul apart once before. There still had to be traces of the old Rylan though, right? The boy from my dreams. Could I talk sense into him?

I nodded in understanding and followed Stephen to the back of a closet in the room. Pushing on a corner, a hidden door sprang open before him.

“Not a sound,” he said in final warning before disappearing into the blackness. Rylan removed his hand, pressed me forward then paused to close the panel behind him.

We had to have stumbled along the passage for at least ten minutes before the stale air became less thick. In the growing distance, voices called out and I clenched my jaw, imagining Chase’s panic as he searched relentlessly for me. A hint of night air tickled my nose. My strong affinity for nature was calling me as if it knew I needed help.

Rylan squeezed my shoulder in warning, clearly sensing my tension. Stephen stopped in front of me and held up his hand.

“There’s an exit right around this corner,” he whispered. “It would do you well, granddaughter, to remember our agreement.”

“I already agreed,” I replied, shaking my head in irritation. They had to have known they had me. I would never intentionally put Chase in harm’s way.

Stephen rounded the corner quickly and Rylan pushed forward. Another panel led directly into the starless night. The clouds blotted out the moon, leaving the chilly night in complete darkness. My disappearance was already creating havoc. Shouts were coming from all around as party-goers bumped into each other, stumbling through the grounds; either in search of me or fleeing in panic.
My breath caught in my throat as Rylan’s arm wrapped around my waist, pulling me close. 

“Not far,” he whispered close to my ear, too close, sending a ripple of goosebumps cascading over my body.

GUEST POST

Question:  What made you want to be a writer/author?

I started out as a reader then became a blogger. I love reading and romance is my go-to genre. One day I got an idea for a romance novel. Once I started writing, I couldn't stop. After my first book was done, I had more characters talking to me, wanting their books written. The ideas have increased since then. I have notebooks, notes on my phone, Kindle, and laptop. I have ideas everywhere. Four years later, I still love writing.

Michelle Dare is a romance author. Her stories range from sweet to sinful and from new adult to fantasy. There aren’t enough hours in the day for her to write all of the story ideas in her head. When not writing or reading, she’s a wife and mom living in eastern Pennsylvania. One day she hopes to be writing from a beach where she will never have to see snow or be cold again.
