Hearts Eclipsed

By

Loved it! 😍

This is a paranormal romance involving werewolves, vampires, and other dark creatures in a fight for love and peace.

"Hearts Eclipsed" by L.C. Son is a companion novel to "Beautiful Nightmare (Book 1)." I did not read book 1 first, although the author recommends to start there. Nevertheless, I soon found myself immersed in an easy to follow storyline with smooth settings and interesting characters.


Jackson is a wealthy man of power. He is in love with Damina; beautiful, sultry, and strong yet resigned. Their passion for each other is mutual and exquisite. But Jackson has a secret that prevents them from consummating their love sexually. He is a werewolf. As long as they remain unmarried, Damina will never have to know this other part of him. Jackson obsesses over the perfect way and time to confess all to Damina. He is not the only contender for Damina's affections but he is determined to make Damina his wife.


In the meantime, Jackson continues his personal goal of ensuring peace in th supernatural world. This isn't always easy although his small group of friends and family support him, sometimes by challenging him.


Caught between the natural and supernatural he tries his best to be noble, to be a protector, to be a person who can be relied on. His instincts work for him and against him.


The other supernatural beings he encounters create epic scenes that sometimes border wonderfully on the macabre.


"The smell of freshly spilled blood feathers my nose, causing my fangs to elongate and my tongue to slither at its invitation."


Horror turns to heartache as Jackson's wolf form overtakes him, causing him to miss a vital milestone in his and Damina's life together. Then Damina disappears. Jackson is sworn to protect her, and must find her or else lose everything he has ever cared about. But what if she doesn't want to be found?


Although there are traitors in his midst, Jackson needs to choose to trust his supporters, even when their actions defy his will.


This modern werewolf story is fast-paced and flows well. The pure love is sweet but tempered by morbidity so as not to be saccharine. Told in first person present from Jackson's point of view, this paranormal romance involves werewolves, vampires, and other dark creatures who aren't always as evil as they appear. Hinting at sex without being gritty, and exploring grim scenes of murder without being explicit, I recommend this for fans of paranormal romance.
