A Secret Past
Fiery redhead Stella Stonewall can’t decide between a margarita and a manhattan. The rest of her life? Please. Stella has never really fit in, and her pretty world comes crashing down when she learns it was never her world at all.Rowan Gresham is domineering, brooding, and as sexy as chocolate-dipped sin. When he transports Stella to the magical realm of her parents she recognizes her rightful place immediately. Gresham’s motivations are less clear.A Scorching Chemistry
The enigmatic Gresham aids in Stella’s metamorphosis and their chemistry ignites, though a long-time girlfriend and a significant age difference stand in the way.A Battle for the Rest of Her Life
Stella’s life fast-tracks to extraordinary when she enrolls at Radix Citadel for Supernatural Learning, an enchanted college whose students turn furry on the regular. As Stella learns to navigate the magical new world of Thayer she must also find her animal form, a task as elusive as her ancestry. Stella soon faces an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn to manipulate an animal form she never knew she possessed.
OMG Gresham, where have you been all my life!? Talk about a leader male who seriously knows how to crank a woman's gears! From the first time Stella runs into his car I wanted these two to fall madly in love and make gorgeous little babies! But of course, that wouldn't be a very exciting book....so their relationship went into another equally as amazing direction!
As Stella enrolls into Radix Citadel, which absolutely reminds me of a mixture between Hogwarts and the private school in Heather Hildenbrand's Dirty Blood series. It's a place to find yourself, learn your magic, make mortal enemies....you know, the usual. Something about Stella being in this school sent off a the "weird-o" meter slightly. Honestly, as soon as this meter started dinging, BAM, it hit....and I can't speficially say what it is because I'm not the spoiler kind, but I will say that it kind of comes from left field.
Now that the ball has dropped on Stella, her instincts start to kick in, she is truly a warrior. With the second book already on it's way I am giddy to find out where this entire storyline will go and what Stella's fate will actually be!
Make sure you pick this one up, with all the different PNR elements, it truly has something for everyone!
