Synopsis: The lost memories of a thief...
The first twelve years of Alina's life are a black void. An accomplished thief, she uses her cloaking ability to pick pockets as well as stage elaborate heists. Digging deeper into her past sets off a chain of events that puts her, and the family she has just discovered, in the sights of their worst enemy.
...and the scarred heart of a guardian...
In secret, Lash Watcher Caine plots vengeance for the destruction of everything he loved. Branded by loss, he longs to find his one true mate, knowing that only with her will his heart fully heal. When his brief meeting with Alina is interrupted by her elaborate evade-and-escape plan, he knows there is more to her than meets his watchful eyes. But nothing can prepare him for the lethal power of her mind.
...collide at the fault line of destiny.
A brilliant villain with a vicious and loyal army behind her can only be stopped by one force: the combined power of four women who command the elements. Alina, with her newly-discovered affinity to the earth, becomes the linchpin to halting the desecration of their world. Thrown into a battle plan and a new family, she finds joy in in the quiet strength of Caine's arms. But when the secrets to her past are revealed, she learns a terrible price has been paid in advance. The very magic that allowed her to live to fulfill a prophecy will forever deny her heart's deepest wish.

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
When I first started this series, I think I flew through the first two books in two days. I couldn’t get enough of them. The author does such a great job of making a testosterone laden alpha male that is completely drool-worthy and yet at the same time, a complete soft-hearted sucker for his mate. She creates memorable women that are strong enough to handle all the testosterone, and balance their men with softness. At the same time, the women have powers that have not been seen in the world of Torth for hundreds of years and are relegated to distant myth, and their men are part of a race of demons called the Lash Demons who are dedicated to protecting them.
The world of Torth is so vastly different than ours (two-headed bluejays, anyone?) and yet the author does an incredible job of describing it so I could see it in my head as I was reading.

The best part of the entire book was the after word, when the author wrote there would be further books about some of the side characters. Yes! This isn’t quite the end.
