They say I need help. Another exorcism. This is not new. This is my life. Today, I expect to suffer at the hands of a man as warped by superstition and fear as my mother. A man who will torture me in order to save me from things that don't exist.

But the man who actually comes to me is different.

Killian is good and decent and he sees what’s good and decent in me. And I don't mean for it to happen, but every time he looks at me his gaze sets me on fire. He brings me to the light, gives me back my life. For the first time, I see a future for myself.

A future with him.

I burn for Killian—a man who’s intent on protecting me. On healing me.

He doesn’t get it. The only thing that can heal me is him. But Killian will soon be a priest. Untouchable. Forbidden.

How can I ask a man to choose between me . . . and God?

    Unique premise and plot in this romance

    I've learned to expect the unexpected from Charlotte Stein and this is another example of the quality of her imagination in creating a romance between an abused woman and the priest-in-training who saves her, a story unique in premise and plot. I confess (ha! appropriate for the priest hero) that I had some trouble with the first chapter, only because I am sensitive to issues of abuse in stories, and without giving away any spoilers this may also trouble other readers. But I persevered and found that once that was out of the way, the rest of the story was actually very sweet (with the requisite sexy of course). I liked both characters in the story. Dot is trying to find her way again out in the world, learning to change her perception of herself from what she's always known. The story is told entirely from her point of view and while Killian is her savior, she also develops real romantic feelings for him. Killian is tender and caring, horrified at Dot's situation and determined to make it better. He has issues with her feelings for him in that he believes they are not true - that they stem from him rescuing her and that this has coloured any thoughts of him in her mind. But he can't resist her either and between the two of them the chemistry ignites. Overall I quite enjoyed this story for it's uniqueness and sweet love affair. 4 stars.
