Blurb: At twenty-three, Dr. Liam McGregor is a well-respected astrophysicist, astrobiologist, and geologist. With no family, few friends, and no romantic prospects, he’s used to being alone. Focusing on his various scientific projects and taking care of his decidedly unusual cat help keep the loneliness at bay.
Jareth Manning is starting life over—new town, new job—after the loss of his husband. The last thing he expects is for the most absentminded, and beautiful, man he’s ever seen to take up residence in his heart. Nor did he expect to find himself a willingly humble slave to Her Imperial Highness, Empress the Cat.
But Jareth has learned that love doesn’t come around often and to hold on to it when it does. Jareth is willing to be patient if Liam is willing to take a risk after being burned before. They just have to survive Liam’s past returning.
Eight years after Liam and Jareth marry, they want a child. Things don’t go well when they try to adopt, with terrible accusations thrown at Jareth. After recovering, they proceed with a private adoption, bringing home a beautiful little girl, Carinae. Then things get ugly, endangering not only Liam’s life, but Carinae’s.
Review: I don’t normally come across a book that I wished I could give them more than five heart ratings. This story was perfect in every way. It has the perfect amount of heart, soul, love, devotion, caring, anger, pain, danger and so on. I loved the way the characters just mix together. This story just seemed to flow off the pages and straight into ones heart.
You can usually read a story and tell right off the bat weather one rights with their heart in it or not. This story is one that you can tell that the author put their entire feelings into it. It just pulls at your heart-strings with every word. It gave me everything I could want in a story. Usually I want a story to keep me entertained and over with, however this story I would have been happy if it just kept on going throughout the night.
Liam is a gorgeous and intelligent man who has absolutely no sense around him. I got such a kick with him. He is one of those young geniuses and at twenty-three is an astrophysicist, astrobiologist, and geologist. He is also the only one I could say that could get injured just walking to the door. There doesn’t have to even be a curb, piece of carpet sticking up or any other obstacle in his way to do so.
His life story is of one heart ache that will have you in fits after you learn it. He was about fifteen when his own mother stabbed him as his father sat there and watched. He was saved by the men who ran the company he worked for. They had taken him in, gave him a home and a career. On the first day he had met the new head of security he had a black eye. He had gotten hit by the door knob and was known in the local Emergency Room, from all of his accidents.
Jareth had thought at first when he met the sexy little scientist that he was being abused. It wasn’t too much time when he saw Liam’s next accident. He made it sure that everyone was to keep an eye on him and the other scientist to make sure they were safe. He had started falling for Liam from the first time he saw him, but when the dangers come for Liam he knew he was going to keep his man safe. He also knew that he would keep this man. He was absolutely in love.
This story has many different twists that I had such a blast with. It seems that you get a story of how they met and where their lives are going. Then there are two stories that follow afterwards. The second story is how they want a child and what dangers are there waiting for them both. Someone is not only set out to kill him, but to make sure they never get a child.
Then in the thirds story they are given a gorgeous little girl. But the father and grandmother of the child starts causing problems. Placing not only Liam, but the baby in danger. Not to mention Liam’s own mother is coming after him. He seems to be always in danger and Jareth is bound to keep his family safe.
What I found funny was the list of author’s that Liam loves. It was a blast of fresh air to recognize some of them. This story has some serious tones to it, but there is quite a bit of humor to it. I had such a blast reading this.
I will definitely be recommending this book. It gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It gives you gorgeous men, sexy scientist, excitement, suspense, a bit of action and lots of dangers.
