This was so amazingly romantic I had a hard time actually doing work during the day! I wanted to get back to the book so badly that I was reading in between assignments and read all through my lunch break. I felt an instant connection to the hero and heroine, and my heart was beating wildly every time they had a scene together. Their attraction was so poignant and lovely, and I really couldn't ask for a better romance than this. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and I wondered if this one would top it - and oh, boy, did it! I want my own Morgon man. Anytime now...I am waiting patiently.
Sister Liana hasn't been able to stop thinking about the handsome Morgon man being sheltered at the convent. But she has a secret she's been hiding that would make a relationship between them impossible. With smoldering eyes and a charming smile, Kieren Moonring is slowly winning Liana's heart, and he knows he has found something special in the shy, kind sister who has been nursing him back to health. But his life is in danger, and in admitting to his desire for her, he could be putting her in danger too. Even though he fights it, his feelings for her grow stronger, and when tragedy strikes, they are thrown together. Sparks fly and a love long smothered ignites into a fire that cannot be denied.
I felt so many emotions as I read about both Liana's past and Kieren's love for her. It was so beautiful, how they fought it for so long and came together in their dreams. Morgons of the Moonring clan have the ability to dreamwalk, and so their romance began long before Liana realized it was not just a figment of her hopes and imagination. And when their pasts became known to each other, it was inspiring to see how they worked through things and healed together, as a unit. Their relationship was so strong and had a lot of depth from the very beginning. There was a particular scene that I really enjoyed, and it was one of hugging. As a hugger myself, I can personally attest to how it feels when you get a hug after not having one for a very long time. It's so comforting and soothing, and Juliette Cross did a fantastic job conveying the emotion such simple affection between two people. The writing was beautiful.
I can't wait to see where this series goes from here! Each book seems to be better than the last, and I am eager to see where the author takes us next.
