James fell hard for Mariah appearing before him so close he could kiss her full, sassy, lips smelling of cotton candy. Her stance is proud with the luscious body of a goddess. She’s covered from head to toe in a sheer body glove sprinkled with gold dust, darker gold in the more private areas making it hard for him to cast his eyes off her. He craved her from first sight, beautiful and feisty the perfect combination for a Va’atacos male.
Learning of her terrible past life, he has a burning desire to rescue Mariah and her daughter and won’t stop until the deed is done. He lost her once and now that she’s returned he swore he’d cross hell to fight the devil himself, before releasing her again.
Mariah didn’t reincarnate from the heavenly realm to find James in lust with the woman whose corpse she transferred into. Nor to discover that James rescued her child, Peach, only to be brutally attacked by the family responsible for her mortal death. Can she set her feelings aside long enough to reclaim a relationship with her daughter, bring the McCurry clan to justice, and rekindle the spark; she fears James might have lost for her?
From the Author: Lover’s Refuge was a fun book for me to write. Using Northern State Psychiatric Hospital was the idea of two of my co-workers. It was the perfect place for James the youngest of the Mantango brothers to go and heal, while him and his brothers set a plan to get their vengeance. It’s a historical land mark here in Sedro Woolley, Washington off of Fruit dale and Highway 20. If you ever get out this way you should go and tour the grounds and walk through the many paths, barns, and graveyard as the patients and the workers there did. It’s said to be haunted and every time I’ve went out there alone I swear someone is watching me.
