Alysia

I’ve lived in shadows all of my life
Feeling empty, but never knowing what I was truly missing
I’ve been taught to hide my talents and be invisible
Until Kendrix walks into my life and sees me. All of me.
I know he is my destiny, but he is holding himself back
There is something he isn’t telling me
I’m afraid when the truth comes out, it will tear us apart

Kendrix

I made a choice to give up my soul and forever alter my destiny
I embraced abilities that I’d kept hidden
But they don’t make up for what I’ve lost
It seems a cruel trick of Fate that I finally met the one who was meant to be mine
And yet, I can never have her
My job is to deceive Alysia and ultimately, to give her up
But the darkness calls to me
Tempting me to hide in the shadows with her forever 
Prologue
Kendrix
           
Hell is often portrayed as a burning pit of fire. However, I’m beginning to wonder if Dante had it right. It seems logical to believe that there are nine levels of hell that are broken down into something like another eighteen circles. Each one different. Each one designated to specific sins. And each one with their own unique atmosphere, not all of which are hot with fire. Where I stand, at this moment, is one circle of Hell. But, it is cold and dark, filled with misery at knowing what I’ve left behind and what is stretched before me. I do my best not to dwell on what was because there is no greater pain than remembering times of love and joy when they are forever out of your reach. You cannot pluck them from the past, and you’ll never find them in your future.
The only thing I have to cling to is my purpose, the reason I made the choice to fall into my own level of Hell. A small fraction of my soul is tightly gripped, enough to remind me what I must do and why I have no choice but to succeed. Beyond that, I have no comprehension of what my future holds after this assignment. I’m finally embracing my abilities as a fate reader, but I am blind to my own destiny. What I see before me is an eternal stretch of blackness.
I can only try my best not to succumb fully to evil. But, if I’m bound to live in darkness forever, is there really any other choice?

I have loved the Fae Guard series since discovering it and I always thought Ean would be my Fae book boyfriend but holy smokes, I think Kendrix is the new one!
My heart broke for everything that Kendrix has to go through in order to protect everyone and everything he loves even at the cost of himself.  He is raw grit and passion and very fierce in protecting what is his. Enter Alysia, and his protective nature goes into overdrive. These two together are utterly stunning. They compliment each other in every way. Even when she is doing her old "job", they look out for each other. The chemistry between these two is undeniable and it is scorching! The connect at a new level in every which way possible. Their banter and fire makes it for such an entertaining read.
When everything comes into play, and the heartbreaking pain these two go through utterly gutted me! I can honestly say I was bawling. What I really loved is how things came full circle and you learn more about Fate as well. I am really hoping that Fate gets her own book as I would love to know more about her and her past!
Overall this book left me begging for more as it was an instant page turning with wanting to know more and more. The flow was amazing and kept the pace perfectly. Everything fit together in such a seamless way that when I was at the end, I was wanting more! Thank you so much Elle for introducing me to the world of the Fae Guard!

I’m a lover of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance. 

I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books. 
I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for my attention. 

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!
