“It was impossible they had met before – of that she was certain. Yet his hold on her was undisputable, an irrational pull to the utmost recesses of her soul.”
Vivienne du Lac has everything she could wish for – a normal, peaceful life, a good job, cushy nest egg, and a semi-social nightlife. The only problem? She’s clueless to being the reincarnation of the Lady of the Lake, mythical sorceress from King Arthur's time, and Merlin's apprentice.
Sebastien Dubois is the guy you wouldn’t take home to mom and dad. He’s the one you jump off on a motorcycle with, to ride into the sunset. The sexual chemistry between them is sizzling from the start – but there’s more to the tall, dark and handsome stranger. When a magical past tumbles into her orderly reality, he is Vivienne’s only hope at survival.
Caught between darkness and light, a battle she has no intention to fight – let alone the knowledge to win – Vivienne quickly finds out not even closest allies can be trusted.
Can she look within and access powers from long past, become the enchantress Merlin meant her to be… Or will she lose it all over love, for Sebastien’s salvation? This is a battle between
I really enjoyed this book. It is an original book and I liked how it mixed the past and present. Vivienne is a princess and much more, she just doesn't remember it. Sebastien is a bad man who does really bad things. The instant attraction the two of them have surprises Vivienne. He is gorgeous but she has never had that kind of reaction to a man. Her friend doesn't seem to like him but her dog does...and so does she!
I love how devoted Sebastien is to Vivienne. She doesn't know the evil that is out to get her but he does and feels it is his duty to stop it. I love Vivienne's dog. He is completely awesome and more than meets the eye. The flashes between the past and present are done really well and explain some of the different issues the characters are having. I both loved and hated Merlin at different times throughout. I couldn't believe the lengths Sebastien went to in his job to save Vivienne. The author did a great job of answering questions but creating new ones at the end to ensure you have to read the next book!
A 4/5 for me and I cannot wait to see what happens next to these characters.
