They wore masks, carried guns, and they weren’t leaving until they got what they came for.~ prologue, Elixxer by Deena Remiel
Callie has secrets, too many to count. For twenty years she’s been living a lie as Callie Worthington, hiding from the monsters who brutally murdered her parents for possession of the Elixxir of Life. Unsuccessful before, their killers have found her and will stop at nothing to acquire the Elixxir. And see her dead.
Nathanael has a couple of secrets, too. A nasty one in particular blurs the line separating Good from Evil. As an immortal Brethren Warrior, though, he must retrieve the Elixxir before it falls into the wrong hands. Just how he’s going to get it out of Callie’s is the big question.
Tempers flare as Callie and Nathanael reach out to each other with their own hidden agendas. She needs his protection. He needs the Elixxir. Will their fiery passion lead to lasting love, or will their web of intrigue ultimately destroy them both? Secrets, lies, and love’s loyalties tested. What price for immortality? What price for love?
I am reading this for a review and have to admit that I selected it partly because I love stories where there is rescuing involved and I love Paranormal. Besides, Jimmy Thomas was on the cover – how could it be bad? 😉 I’ll let you know how it goes!
