"Wonderful introduction to the Reapers!"
Lord Riel Evann-Sin is sitting in an inn waiting for his
friend to show up. While waiting, a group of women come
in, Hell Hags, women warriors of the Dark Queen Lilit.
Among this group of women, is one Riel can't take his eyes
off. When the apparent leader of the group starts trouble,
Riel steps in and they end up leaving, all but the one
Riel is interested in. Her name is Tamara and she is one
of Daughters of the Night, or Hell Hags. The two exchange
a kiss and even though Riel begs her to stay, Tamara
leaves in order to fulfill her vows to her queen. When his
friend doesn't show up, Riel leaves and intends to go find
him. Imagine his surprise when he gets to an oasis and
finds himself attacked by the same group of women he ran
into at the inn, minus Tamara.
Kaibyn Zafeyr is a demon. His skills are bringing pleasure
to women, which is exactly what got him into trouble. One
woman conjured him from the Abyss, but when Kaibyn's eye,
and body, roved, the woman became angered and killed him.
A magi proceeds to bring him back to "unlife" and Kaibyn
Queen Lilit is one of the blood. When the Hell Hags
attacked Riel, she almost took his life. The sun rising is
the only thing that saved him, since Lilit cannot stand
the sun. Of course, she has something evil planned.
Riel, Tamara, Kaibyn and Rabin (also brought back from the
dead by the magi) must work together to stop the evil
Lilit is planning.
Will they be able to work together? Or will Riel and
Kaibyn kill each other when Kaibyn makes a move on Tamara?
How will they be able to stop an army of the blood? Will
Kaibyn has his vengeance?
LONGING'S LEVANT is a wonderful story in which we become
introduced to Charlotte Boyett-Compo's "Reapers". I really
enjoyed learning how the Reapers came into being and all
their skills. These four very different people must learn
to work together in order to accomplish their goals. Riel
is definitely alpha, but when he meets Tamara he begins to
realize just what he will be willing to give up to have
her. But then again, as a Hell Hag, Tamara isn't exactly a
shy, meek woman either. I loved the way Rabin took to
Kaibyn's method of "traveling". And Kaibyn never could
keep his eye from roving. The characters are all
intriguing and richly portrayed, the plot is thrilling and
keeps you reading. I highly recommend LONGING'S LEVANT to
all lovers of paranormal romance.

Lord Riel Evann-Sin was a man with whom to reckon in his position as Lord High Commander of the Akkadian Forces. Men feared him and women lusted after the handsome warrior. His sword hand was legendary; his sexual prowess well known.
Tamara Naibril was a Daughter of the Night-one of the women warriors called Hell Hag's by those who feared them. Her own brand of justice and honor will set her against her own kind and place her on a road to a horror that could not even be imagined.
Kaibyn Zafeyr had been conjured from the Abyss by lonely women who wanted not only to exploit the Rysalian demon's immortal powers, but to use his muscular body for their own entertainment. Being all things to all women was a tiring job but Kai was very good at what he liked to do.
Cainer Cree has spent decades imprisoned on the Isle of Uaigneas-the unwilling captive of Morrigunia, the Goddess of War, Life and Death. The Reaper must endure a loneliness no human man could withstand. Alone, memories of the woman he had loved and lost ever in his grieving mind, his mission in life is to set right the wrongs done to the helpless.
Fate will bring these four unique beings together to wage war against an evil woman intent on bringing mankind to its knees, its throat bare to brutal fangs that would suck the life's blood from every man, woman, and child on earth and leave them in thrall to the Daughters of the Night. It will take every power they possess-human or otherwise-to defeat the Queen of the Daughters of the Night. Along the way, undying love will be forged in the crucible of adversity as Evann-Sin and Tamara become one, hearts entwined.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
