Haunted by memories of her past, Amethyst Lakes left her home to come to Edenton. She was ready to start a new life on her own after being stalked relentlessly.

Hayden Hunter is too busy being Sheriff to take interest in a woman. That is until his officer drags Amethyst into his life. For the first time he wants to protect and claim.

 There’s instant attraction between the two, but Amethyst isn’t ready for anyone since she found out her ex killed himself after she sent him away for good.

 Preston has always protected Amethyst, and when he finds out something of legend and nightmares is coming for her, he’ll do everything he can to keep her safe.

 Amethyst is either the catalyst to bring nightmares fully into this realm, or the one to end them. Can she find the power to stop the darkness, or will she wind up its prey?

 Pretty little nymph, suspicious but sexy earth Fae, cocky mage, and a nightmare of old.

***Contains Graphic Sex, Strong Language and Adult Situations. Not for young readers***

***Leah, #NerdGirlPhoenix’s Review***

An awesomely SEXY trip back to Edenton. Little tiny Amethyst is a siren, running from a tragic past relationship decides to join her friends in Edenton where she hopes she will blend in! Scared of her own nature and determined to stay away from the male species, all she wants is to live quietly and work as a piercer at the local tattoo shop. Unfortunately you can’t run away from your true nature or your destiny.

 Massively huge and quiet Hayden, the local sheriff/Earth Fae hasn’t been attracted to a women in decades, and honestly doesn’t believe he ever will again. But the moment he spots tiny water Fae Amethyst he is absolutely hooked. When her dark past and the past of her ancestors come back to haunt her, he will do everything necessary to protect her.

To be honest I wasn’t a big fan of Hayden in the first book, he seemed overly suspicious and abrasive. I had a hard time picturing him as the same physical age as the rest of the characters. This book gives you insight into Hayden that proves under that steel like exterior, inside he is a big teddy bear. He loves his friends and is completely loyal, he would do anything for any one of them. Amethyst brings out his soft side for the whole world to see!

 Rivers delivers another super sexy fast paced supernatural fantasy novel. It is a great addition to the Others of Edenton Series. I can hardly wait for our next trip to Edenton!
