DARKLING

Author(s): 

Niles is an amazing hero. He is a complex character who has an open heart and is not afraid to be vulnerable. Sure, Niles is a bit too focused on heroine Vega’s physicality, but considering she is a celestial being and gorgeous, readers really can’t hold this against him. The lovemaking between the two is a little awkward, but the absolutely unique plot will have readers hooked from the first sentence to the very last.

Vega is a star and part of the Gemini constellation. She has watched humans and never dreamed that she would walk among people. When she accidentally drops a starscale, the magical artifact that brings light to newborn stars, she voluntarily falls to Earth in order to find it. With only two weeks to complete her mission, it is a good thing that she finds Niles. The two have an instant connection, but Vega knows she can’t tell Niles about her true self. When a coincidence lands the starscale in Niles’ possession, Vega must take it, even though it means betraying the man she is growing to love. (ELLORASCAVE.COM, dl $5.20)
