Joy and despair, light and dark, you can’t have one without the other. Devlin Addams has recently returned home from Afghanistan. Haunted by memories that he survived the fighting while his buddies didn’t and chased by the knowledge his mom is crazy, he’s having trouble acclimating himself to civilian life. Now, armed with a dog and a therapist, he constantly battles the urge to end it all. Lia Farry - because her Fae name is a mouthful - has tumbled into the Mortal Realm through the Veil between worlds by mysterious circumstances. Thrust into a new and harsh human existence, finding anything to be happy about is hard. If she can’t go home, she’ll have to make it work. Forced to interact, Dev’s protective instincts kick in, but he’s unprepared for the onslaught of desire Lia represents. He wants a normal life, but not at the expense of getting involved. Lia soothes his torment, yet she’s battling her own problems. Wanting Dev is a dangerous prospect. Add in a meddling Fae queen, and suddenly, life as they know it will change forever. Love is at stake. A leap of faith is all they have to depend on.
