Kalissa Bradenton isn’t your average coffee shop owner. Born to an elite witch bloodline with a rare genetic mutation, she’s a Divinity on a mission. Her investigation into the deaths of her parents sends her straight into the middle of an ancient war between witches and demons. After a near-fatal accident, a childhood friend, Ayden Daniels, comes to her aid and triggers visions of a past she doesn’t remember, sparking an old flame and new desires. With their history slowly becoming clearer, Kalissa eagerly sets her sights on mending Ayden’s heart and gaining his trust—until a ghost from her past returns to claim her as his demonic mate.
While investigating a series of Divinity murders, Ayden, the new sheriff of Maxville and grandson of the oldest living Divinity, comes face-to-face with the one woman he hopes to have little to no contact with. Old pain rises instantly and is quickly followed by anger and resentment. Through his rare power of adaptability, however, he learns that things from his past may not be what they seem. Hope fills his broken heart, and determination pushes him to do whatever it takes to win Kalissa once more before he loses her forever.
Together, they must find the strength to mend their tattered souls and learn to love again, while fighting an evil out to destroy the world.
Once again Lia Davis has created a world to get lost in. While mostly like your average places to live today, Maxville is a not only a small town it is a coven, surrounded by wards to keep those that would harm out.
There is a lot going on in this book. To begin with Demons are killing off the Divinities. Created by the Goddess Hecate they are tasked with protecting the Sinew, source of the Divinities Power.
Divinity twins Kalissa and Khloe lose their parents to a horrible car accident that was caused by a demon. Eighteen months later with no investigative results from their friend, empath, witch and deputy sheriff Zach they decide to go through their parents things for clues.
What they find leaves them with more questions and instructions to be followed. In the process of following those instructions, Kalissa is involved in what could have been a fatal crash.
At his cousin Zach’s request Ayden, also a Divinity, who is traveling to Maxville to take the position of sheriff, goes to Kalissa’s aid.
Years ago Ayden was sure he was her magical mate. The one he would spend his immortal life with, but she turned from him and claimed another was. Leaving him heartbroken and angry.
A favorite scene is at the hotel after he pick her up from the hospital.
Her reaction to him at the hospital was that of an old friend seeing him for the first time in fifteen years. Buried pain resurfaced. But he couldn’t resist touching her. It had gone downhill from there.
She was the same Kalissa he’d fallen in love with over fifteen years ago, but she didn’t remember him. Ayden, like the rest of his family, was empathic. Being a Divinity only amplified the empathy, and, combined with his very rare power of adaptability, gave him the ability to pick up on others’ feeling and thoughts. He’d grasped on to Kalissa’s gift of visions and had used it with his empathy to see into her mind. And into the past. There was a hole in her memory. His anger dissolved into confusion. Hope sparked into a tiny flame. That flame grew with every minute they were together. Who would erase her memory? Better yet, why erase her love for him but not all of him from her memories? How in the hell was that even possible?
The main reason for invading her memories, besides being a selfish bastard, was to find out why she’d dumped him for someone else so many years ago. He hadn’t expected her memory to be altered.
Is this my second chance? Can I trust her with my heart again?
