Black Royce is a soldier of the gods who's given his life to
protecting mankind from the demons that hunt them. When he's
sent into the future to protect a powerful healer from the
evils' that are determined so use her powers for themselves,
he discovers the one woman who can make him forget his vows
and all his self-imposed rules.
Allie Monroe is determined to use her healing powers to help
the people who need it, even if it means putting herself at
risk. Transported to a castle in Scotland when a warrior
from the past arrives to protect her, Allie can do nothing
to protect her heart from the powerful warrior's modern day
version. But when Royce is murdered in present day, nothing
will stop Allie from going back to the past to save him; not
even the possibility of her own death.
I loved this book! This was my first Brenda Joyce novel and
I can't believe what I've been missing. DARK RIVAL didn't
just hook me into the story, I was consumed. Both Allie and
Royce are such strong characters. I loved watching the
sparks fly off the pages when these two butted heads; and
they butted heads often. Add to the mix the secondary
characters that'll have you intrigued about what's to come
and you have a winning combination all around. I can't wait
to pick up the first book in this series, DARK SEDUCTION,
and I hope Ms. Joyce plans many, many more Master of Time
books in the future.
Highland warriors sworn to protect innocence throughout the
ages . . .
A golden man, he is called Black Royceâ€”a battle-hardened
soldier of the gods. His vows are his lifeâ€”until he is sent
to New York City to protect a Healer from those who would
use her powers for themselves. The moment Royce sees
beautiful, feisty Allie Monroe, he knows she will be his
only weaknessâ€”and he is right.
Destiny is a dangerous thing
Allie Monroe is more than an heiress. She is a Healer,
willing to do anything to save victims of the evil that
lurks in the city at night. But alone, she can do only so
muchâ€”until destiny sends her the darkest Highlander of them
all. Then evil strikes and Royce is destroyed before
Allie's eyes. Now Allie will do anything to save Royceâ€”even
if it means going back in time to a dark, dangerous world.
Confronting their enemies could cost not only their lives,
but their loveâ€”for all eternity.
