Romantic Science Fiction/Futuristic
Prophetic promises make for dangerous pillow talk.
A handful of days have passed since Kahlym cal Jhuen stumbled upon the beautiful female who altered his entire existence. Strong, fierce, and willing to fight for what she loved, he is powerless against the undeniable attraction. But, the Rimmarian Emperor wants his alluring prize back and with every Thrall enforcer in the Seven Quadrants hot on their trail, Kahlym is running out of options.
Evainne Wagner never thought her Bostonian front door would lead her halfway across the galaxy. Neither did she expect to find passion in the arms of a drop dead gorgeous space captain. Guess life has a funny way of keeping things interesting. Now, all she had to do was figure out how to control the phenomenal cosmic powers spinning inside her mind without getting killed in the process.
Added to this turbulent mix is a true rogues' gallery of new allies and old enemies, and only the Goddess knows if love can survive the oncoming storm.

DIVINE CHALLENGES is the second book in the Rise of Stria trilogy, and we return to Evainne and Kahl as they try to figure out... well, everything, really. Their relationship is still early days but it's amazing how fast something moves when your life is being threatened every which way! I love Evainne's sass and Kahlym's protectiveness; even when he does the wrong thing, his heart is in the right place.
Lots of different players in this one and the action is non-stop once again. The best bit for me is although there are new players, the old ones remain and become even more loved than they were in book one. So easy to see their different personalities now!
This was an amazing read that kept me glued to the page. I will admit a guilty pleasure of re-reading book one, just so I could continue without any gaps. It is exceedingly well-written, with fantastic world- and character-building, and the pacing is perfect, with plenty of action and tender moments. It does end on one helluva cliffhanger, so fair warning. As for me, I can't wait to get the last book and finish off this outstanding story. Highly recommended!
