The third in Hinnenkamp’s thrilling Dyad series turns the mythology she has built on its ear and sharpens the intrigue and passion to a clever point. Her characters are a colorful mixture of strength and weakness. Readers will sympathize with Emma and Damien’s plight, as love can change even the most rigid thinking.
Emma is in love with the mysterious and hunky Damien — but Dyads don’t fall in love with humans. Damien is intrigued by Emma, who lightens his serious life, until a moment of uncontrollable passion marks her as his mate and threatens to destroy the Dyad collective. Another darker, more sinister force is stalking the collective. When it captures Emma, Damien will need the collective in order to save her and protect their existence.
