Soul Mate Publishing
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. The death of her parents sends her away from her Maxville, Florida, home and into an ancient war between witches and demons. When childhood friend Ayden Daniels comes to her aid after an almost fatal accident, visions of a past she doesn’t remember sparks an old flame and new desires. With the past slowly becoming clearer, she 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.
Ayden, the new Sheriff of Maxville and grandson of the oldest living Divinity, is investigating a series of Divinity killings. When he comes face-to-face with the one woman he hopes to have little to no contact with, old pain rises, quickly followed by anger and resentment. Through his rare power of adaptability, he learns actions from the past may not be what they seem. Hope fills his broken heart and determination pushes him to do whatever it takes to win Kalissa’s heart once more before he loses her forever.
Together they must find the strength to mend their tormented souls, while fighting an evil out to destroy the world.

I’m a big fan of paranormal romances, and I love reading stories by new-to-me authors. Lia Davis, though, isn’t quite a new-to-me author…..but she is. I’ve been following her for quite sometime now, and joined her street team long ago, but this is the first book by her that I have read. It’s the first book in her Divinities series, and what a rockin’ start it is! Ms. Davis’ parnormal elements are stunning and her characters are complex and real-to-life. The plot line is breath taking and I was completely captivated from first page to last.
I really loved Kalissa’s character. She was brilliantly created with a fierce independent nature. Her “third” eye, or visions, abilities were amazing! I would love to be able to have visions the way she does. Kalissa’s parents died in an accident, but Kalissa saw who caused it after having a dream and rushing to the scene. Now she needs to find out why they did it and who,exactly, that person was. But, as she seeks the answers she needs after finding a mysterious letter from her mother, she nearly dies. Untder the watchful eye of the sexy new Maxville sheriff, her search just got more complicated. Something’s intimately familiar about him, even though she’s known him since childhood. There’s more to the story, and she’s determined to figure it all out. But,there’s a problem. Demons don’t want her to.
Ayden is one hot cop! I adored his character! He’s fiercely protective of Kalissa when he realizes she’s been in an accident. But there’s just one tiny problem. She tore his heart out and stomped all over it when they were teenagers and she left him for someone else. He has a right to be upset at her….or does he? Determined to finish what their parents started in seeking out the Sinew and keeping away from the demons and the Dark Divine, he tries to keep his heart in tact. But, as he learns more of the story, both from Kalissa and his cousin Zach, something’s not adding up. He may just get his second chance at love with his eternal mate…that is, if the demons don’t prevail first.
Watching Ayden protect both Kalissa and his heart was awesome! The attraction between them was super hot and sizzling! There were so many times I wanted to trade places with Kalissa . These characters were absolutely perfect for their roles and really stole my heart.
This 5 Book worthy start to Ms. Davis’ new series is deserving of more than just a rating. It’s deserving of hats-off praises, highest recommendations, being read again and again. It’s filled with suspenseful twists, fantastic passion, magic that will captivate you and an ending that will drop your jaw and leave you ready for book 2 instantly! I can’t wait until Kalissa’s twin’s story is told in Death’s Storm, releasing in November 2012!
