THE AFTER WIFE
In this tantalizing story involving a romantic triangle the stakes are literally life and death. The premise of a woman caught between a sensual biological destiny and human love is quite intriguing, but it's undercut by the heroine's frustrating refusal to face the extraordinary nature of events around her. Still, Davis' characterization ensures that the choice between seductive evil and sensuous good is a tough one!
But it will take more than persistence for David to win Nia's heart and body, for she is the destined bride of demon lord Rephaim. Since Nia's birth, which was arranged by Rephaim, he has watched her, protected her and waited for her 25th birthday, when he will make her his queen. Not, however, if David has anything to say about it!
