Tshering Snow never meant to fall hopelessly in love with her savior, the Ancient, known as Lance, but she did. He seems to care deeply for her, spending every available hour with her, but will he be able to give up his past and settle down with one woman? After all, he has the reputation of a playboy.

Lance hates the personification he has created around himself. Afraid the others might not understand; he has held back the truth from Gabriel and the other Guardians. He has waited for the right woman, the one Sekhmet prophesized about so long ago. And now he has found her. When he is accused of fathering a child by both Gabriel and Tshering, how can he make them believe the child is not his, even if the boy is a spitting imagine of him?

After the women are attacked by Set’s Legions while relaxing on Jennifer’s new yacht, they come to the unanimous decision; they will train and join the Guardian forces. But that’s not as easy as it was meant to be. Old fashioned and hard headed, Gabriel is determined he will not having women fighting in their war. When Tshering, Jennifer and Jessica are taken hostage by Set’s Legions all hell breaks loose on the Guardian’s compound. Lost without their mates, brother fights brother while they try save their women and put an end to the Legion’s terror. Will Sekhmet, the goddess they serve, step in and reveal the truth or will she leave them to find their own solutions to a never ending war as she has in the past?

Doug's Review:

Since I have read the previous two novels in this series I could not wait to read this one, it did not disappoint.

There seems to be no real "couple" for this book as with the previous novels (although they usually had more than 1 couple) this was more of a moving forward with the story and adding a few more wrinkles that you can see coming and all of it looks to be exciting to say the least.

While Lance and Tshering took a decent part of the main plot it was not the overwhelming point, we revisit most of the usual characters from the other books and throw in a couple of new things (I cannot wait to see who/what Michael is hooking up with)

The action is woven in with romance and intrigue expertly and the multifaceted plot never leaves you with boring sections that must be scanned. I always love that you never get left with a cliffhanger but always left with a few unanswered questions for hooking you into the future novels.

While not overwhelming popular (yet) these are 5 Star reading, perhaps a few editing mistakes along the way but nothing I would bother to mention other than one TSTL situation that I guess could not be avoided to make the plot work.

Bottom Line: This is a 4.5 Star novel in a series that improves with each installment, highly recommended for PNR and UF enthusiasts. This is one of those rare series that has greatly exceeded my expectations.

Reviewer's Note: I would strongly suggest that any reader start with book 1 of this series to enjoy the excellence of this novel.
