After reading just the excerpt, I already knew Inez Kelley has a talent for creating a supremely alpha hero who has complex and really real emotions. Mmm. You just want Bryton's heart to be healed.
The other thing that makes me drool is the simplicity of putting a Carina book on my Sony Reader (oh, Reader, how I love thee). Three cheers for Carina and another three for Inez.
It’s not nice to piss off Mother Nature…
Bryton Haruk sets out on a suicide mission to stop the bloodthirsty Skullmen from terrorizing the war-weary Land of Eldwyn. Consumed by guilt over the death of his wife, Bryton seeks revenge and reunion in the afterlife with his lost love. His purpose is determined, his bravery unmatched, until the queen casts a spell to save Bryton from himself.
Salome is that spell. A bird-shifter, she can harness the earth’s breeze and take the form of a beautiful, innocent woman. Her challenge is to harness Bryton’s pain and guide him to peace. She entrances and irritates him, tempting Bryton from his mission. Even as he gives in to the passion between them, Bryton insists on mounting a solo attack on the brigands’ compound, and Salome fears her love won’t be enough to save him…
