"A Web of Sultry Drama"
This is the third book of the Little Goddess Series.
Cory returns to Green's Hill. She is still dealing with
Adrian's death and the two marriages that were thrust upon
her. She is married to Braken by magic and to Nicky due to
unfortunate circumstances. There is no divorce in the
preternatural world. To leave either of these men would
mean their death. Cory wishes she was bound to Green, but
he is the leader and a healer sidhe. Unfortunately, he is
unable to make that kind of promise. Cory feels every
commitment in her life is made without her consent. If
juggling her love life, being the Queen of the vampires,
and perfecting her Goddess powers aren't difficult enough,
there is a new threat in town; a being that is destroying
whomever it touches. Cory will protect the ones she loves
at all cost, even if it's with her own life.
Green must resume his leadership and business connections,
which takes him away from the hill and from his beloved.
He knows Cory is in good hands, but it doesn't stop him
from worrying about her. He is aware Cory needs to find
balance with both the human world and the life she leads on
the hill. He will do what it takes to ease the burden.
Braken just wants to take care of Cory, protect and love
her, be her steady rock, but she is forever butting heads
with him. If this isn't bad enough, he must learn to
accept Nicky who should have never been bound to Cory. He
must also deal with his anger toward Adrian and stop
blaming him for leaving this world first.
Nicky knows Cory will not let him perish, but their
marriage is limited to a designated 'date night', not
exactly the way he envisioned his life. He would do
anything for Cory even if means he must leave Green's house
and live with the other Avians.
With the new threat in town, Green returns home with an
idea to bind all his people so they will be safe. Cory's
powers are charged from emotions. It will take Green,
Braken and Nicky's love for Cory to make it possible, but
it will also be hinged on Cory's willingness to participate.
Ms. Lane has a knack for spinning a tale that will leave
you begging for more. All three of her Goddess books,
Vulnerable, Wounded and Bound grabbed me from the first
page. Ms. Lane paints her characters with deep emotion,
where commitment means everything and love is the most
powerful magic of all. I look forward to reading more
intriguing stories by this talented author.
