Unexpected Eden (Eden #1)
Genre: M/F, Contemporary, Fantasy, Romance
Paradise, love, power…and a prophecy with a price.
Most people believe Eden no longer exists. Lexi Merrill’s about to learn they’re wrong. A hard-working bartender with a self-sufficient backbone and a wary nature, she knows pickup lines like a second language. So, when Eryx Shantos barges into her world with too-smooth words and a body to back it up, she locks up her libido and vows to keep her distance.
Eryx has other ideas. As king of the Myren race, Eryx is duty-bound to enforce the laws preventing exposure of their existence to humans. Yet The Fates have led him through his dreams to Lexi, a temptation he doesn’t want to resist. The question–is she Myren, or human which makes her forbidden fruit?
When Eryx’s nemesis tags Lexi as his next target, Eryx insists on taking her home where he can keep her safe. Lexi had no idea “home” would mean the one-and-only land of creation…or that she’d trigger a prophecy that could doom her newfound race.
My Review: 4.5/5 Stars
Unexpected Eden is fast paced and grabs your attention after the first paragraph.
Lexi works as a bartender and goes to school. She basically keeps her head down and does her work, but she knows that there is something missing in her life.
Eryx is the king of his people and he has been searching for his mate for the past 10 years. One night he finds her and will do anything to get her to be his.
Let’s throw in a very bad guy and a psycho ex-lover and you have yourself a great story. I couldn’t put it down, that’s how good it was. Lexi is a fighter and was determined to be the woman that Eryx needed. Eryx is what wet dreams are made of. I liked how the main characters and supporting characters reacted with other and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
Rhenna Morgan writes for the same reason she reads—to escape reality.
Yes, her life rocks—two beautiful little girls, a great husband, a steady job, and the kind of friends that would take you out back if you hurt her. But, like most women, she’s got obligations stacked tight from dusk to dawn. So, when the world gets her down, she slips into something…less realistic.
Romance is a must. So is a steamy romp (or four). Nothing thrills her more than the fantasy of new, exciting worlds, strong, intuitive men, and the sigh of, “Oh if only that could happen to me.”
So, if you’re picking up one of her books, expect portals into alternate realms and men who’ll fight to keep the women they want. Romantic escape for the women who need it.
