Enchant Me by J. Kenner
(Guild Hunter Book 14)
Nalini Singh returns to the world of the Guild Hunters for the most highly anticipated novel of the beloved series—a love story so epic it’s been half a millennia in the making…
Illium and Aodhan. Aodhan and Illium. For centuries they’ve been inseparable: the best of friends, closer than brothers, companions of the heart. But that was before—before darkness befell Aodhan and shattered him, body, mind, and soul. Now, at long last, Aodhan is healing, but his new-found strength and independence may come at a devastating cost—his relationship with Illium.
As they serve side by side in China, a territory yet marked by the evil of its former archangel, the secret it holds nightmarish beyond imagining, things come to an explosive decision point. Illium and Aodhan must either walk away from the relationship that has defined them—or step forward into a future that promises a bond infinitely precious in the life of an immortal…but that demands a terrifying vulnerability from two badly bruised hearts.
Nikki leaned back, clearly surprised. “Mr. Stark. Are you proposing?”
He took her hand.
“We’ve reached a checkpoint, and now we’re moving forward. Growing our family. Pushing our boundaries. The truth is, I renew all my promises to you with every kiss. Nikki, my love, I want to make it formal again. In front of our friends and our children.”
He stood, then got down on one knee. “Nikki Fairchild Stark, will you do me the honor of marrying me again?”
Her bright smile filled his soul. “Mr. Stark,” she said as she took his hands and pulled him up and into her arms, “it would be my absolute pleasure.”
