Blurb for UNEXPECTED EDEN
Paradise, love, power…and a prophecy with a price.
Most people believe Eden no longer exists. Lexi Merrill’s about to learn they’re wrong. A hard-working bartender with a self-sufficient backbone and a wary nature, she knows pickup lines like a second language. So, when Eryx Shantos barges into her world with too-smooth words and a body to back it up, she locks up her libido and vows to keep her distance.
Eryx has other ideas. As king of the Myren race, Eryx is duty-bound to enforce the laws preventing exposure of their existence to humans. Yet The Fates have led him through his dreams to Lexi, a temptation he doesn’t want to resist. The question–is she Myren, or human, which makes her forbidden fruit?
When Eryx’s nemesis tags Lexi as his next target, Eryx insists on taking her home where he can keep her safe. Lexi had no idea “home” would mean the one-and-only land of creation…or that she’d trigger a prophecy that could doom her newfound race.
Misty’s Review of UNEXPECTED EDEN
This was an excellent story and I was captivated to the pages till the end of the book.
Unexpected Eden is the story of Eryx and Alexis. Eryx is the king of Eden and Alexis is a human that Eryx has been dreaming of for several years and went searching for her in the human realm. Eryx and his second have spent quit of time in the human realm to find Alexis and when they do Eryx hits on her upfront and asks her to breakfast.
When they went to breakfast and old enemy from Eden attacked and Alexis and Eryx escapes to Eden and he realizes that she is his mate. But he has two things to convince Alexis of one is that she is more then human and that she is his mate. Alexis has some confidence issues and he gives her time to adjust to everything.
Eryx is a little aggressive but is very likable and Alexis has to come to term with her issues and she is relatable.
Do I Recommend?
I would recommend this series to anyone who loves paranormal romance about magic and immortals. I would reread this series over and over again.
