"a very unique fantasy"
When Beth was a child, she would always have dreams of a
winged man. He had brought her joys and ecstasy over and
over again till all she wanted in her life was the real
man, not to just dream about him. Now Beth is a scientist
who lives in the city of the damned. She knows she must
find the cure for the radiation that had been released
during the war. There was no time in her life for love or
a relationship or the man in her dreams, but that doesn't
stop her from wanting him to hold her, or support her
during these stressful times. So while she is out one day
getting samples and checking the readings of radiation,
who appears in front of her but the man from her dreams,
The Winged Angel of a man. From that day forward, her life
will be changed for ever, but will it be for the good?
Keeper of the Laws, Aurel, a Dragul finds Beth in his
lands. He remembers a past memory or a feeling that just
pricks at his thoughts. No matter that he is drawn to this
woman, and wants to remember what is on the edge of his
memory; Beth is still a danger to his people. He has to
put aside what he thinks or feels for the better of his
people. But can he do that when he knows she is "The One"?
The first story in the Dragul series by Marie Treanor was
a great and wonderful read. The storyline is strong and
very unique, that is what drew me from the start. When you
read as many books as I do, you look for something
different, which the author provided. The passion and heat
between Beth and Aurel was "Pure Erotic" but with a loving
passion that made me feel all warm inside. This storyline
was very well paced and kept my interest, in fact it made
me want to read the book faster until I got almost to the
end, then all I wanted was for the book to be longer, or
read very, very slowly.
