HE WAS GUILTY
Dustin is a convicted murderer.
He’s mournful, bitter, drowning in a sea of self-pity with nothing left to lose.
The church has sent me to bring him into the fold.
Bound by my namesake, Saint Odilia,
I should be defending my spirituality and morality with my life.
It only took a few letters to change everything.
HE FOUND INNOCENCE
Odilia saved my life and gave me her heart.
But I’m still mournful, bitter and drowning in self-pity.
Only now I have something to lose… her.
Gaining my freedom was supposed to be the hard part, but it’s going to take much more for me to be worthy of a saint.
LOVE WILL BE FREED
I am blown away that this is Misty’s debut novel, just in utter amazement. What an interesting pair to start with… convicted killer and soon to be nun, what should be doomed from the start blooms into a hot connection. Plus, love the communication back and forth between then.
All the emotions that run through both characters can be felt with such intensity, you can’t help but get wrapped up in their world. Dustin draws Odilia out into the big world, while Odilia shows Dustin that his world hasn’t stopped spinning yet. Each pushing and pulling the other to step outside the box they’ve been placed in.
I do wish there had been a tad bit more “drama” when his past collides with his future, but when Misty about broke my heart (and when you read it you’ll know where I’m talking about) I was drawn away from that.
She will be an author that I will forever stalk for all the new goods!
