Erica Sterling has the Greek Muse of lyrics and erotic poetry inside of her. She and her sister muses have come together to inspire the world again. Reed McIntosh is a firefighter for Federal Fire. When he meets Erica through his best friend's girlfriend, he can't take his mind off her. After running into her weeks later, he finds out from his friend that he's actually fated to be her Guardian.
This is the third book in the series and I'm totally loving it. I really liked both main characters and felt for everything they had been through. The great thing about this story is that it wasn't predictable. There were a couple of curveballs, one of which had me pleading with a new character. It was a great story that I was able to read quickly. I can't wait for the next one. I highly recommend.
**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book
I received this book to give an honest review.
I have read other books by this author and I have to say I do like her writing style so I expected this book to be a bit different but yet good at the same time. I can honestly say I almost threw my kindle when I got to the very end of the book and there was a HUGE cliffhanger. We are introduced to Layla who is in an abusive relationship and pregnant. When she runs away from her ex-boyfriend she joins her friend at a Renaissance Festival and helps her and her business out. Though it seems that this Festival is more than just a festival. While Layla is there she finds love with an unlikely character and we watch as their friendship blossoms into something more.
When we get towards the end we learn about what exactly the knowing is about and how Layla is apart of it.
As far as characters go I thought they were well developed. I think my favorite character was Rogan and just how sensitive and a gentleman that he was, really called to me. It seems that Rogan will do anything for Layla and go to great depths to protect her.
I think this is going to become a good series as I am hoping to read more about the Knowing and maybe Cordelia and why she gives off bad vibes. I really enjoyed the magical element from the Renaissance Festival that the author brought to life. It makes for a good setting.
I had several reasons for picking up this book, and my high expectations were not disappointed. This was an enjoyable adventure into the Stuart court with all its gilded surface and dirty underbelly. Lucy St John is in a unique position as the daughter of a prominent family but a younger sister with an unsympathetic guardian. Her coming of age takes place in an environment where no one allows their true self to be exposed. Being more honest and naive than those around her, Lucy learns some difficult lessons in courtly love and betrayal, but these experiences set her upon the path to find faith, true love, and happiness

I really enjoyed this story a lot. I loved the new twist on muses . This was a quick read. I liked that there was a lot of mythological history in this story. This is also fast paced as well as action packed. This story has: kidnapping, murder, attempted murder, suspense, action, lies, missing teammate, mythological creatures, humor and Navy Seals, and so much more. At times this story was scary and had me on the end of my chair. I think Callie and Hunter make a perfect pair and I was rooting them on. I didn’t want to put this down. I loved Callie’s and Hunters character and I loved the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
