All her life, Ella Barrow has allowed others to make her decisions. Forced to stifle her artistic talents and stay in a loveless relationship with Clayton Kerrington, the man her mother believes to be her perfect match, Ella’s life may be safe—but it’s not her own. Paxon Nightwing, on the other hand, is anything but the safe choice.
A charming and alluring Morgon, Paxon sees Ella for the woman she truly is. His bold confidence and protective nature ignites a passion she’s never felt before. But a dark family tragedy forces their secrecy—until Clayton makes it impossible to hide their clandestine affair. Will Ella be strong enough to fight for herself at last? Or will she succumb once more and risk losing the only man she’s ever loved?
Paxton Nightwing is a playboy, or a play- Morgon. So imagine is surprise when he is attracted to Ella, the human bestie of his cousin’s wives. Ella grew up n a hose with deep seated hatred of Mogons. She has always been shelters, pampered and controlled by her parents. She respects them, loves them, and believes that they know best. This is why she dates a douchebag like Clayton Kerrington. An incident occurs causing Paxton and Ella to become close. They both want more yet blackmail is at hand.
Ella is meek, shy and insecure. Never having to decide on anything can make a gal that way. Paxton pushes her to be true to herself-to stop living for others. He is good for her. Yet there are times I honestly questioned if she was good for him. The unknown obstacles (I have to be vague or else it will be spoiler city) could tear them apart. At times I wanted to shout at her for being stupid but I understand how love for someone will have you protecting them at all cost. I think my main problem with Ella is that I viewed her as weak. I tend not to like female characters without a backbone. Thankfully she does grow one.
This is a charming tale, one that has you finished in one seating without realizing it. Your only question will be is there more.
