(Eden Series #3)
by Lexi Post
Animal lover Jaelene Upton doesn’t expect to lose sight of
her sister when she follows her through a bizarre travel portal, but that’s
exactly what happens when she’s distracted by a cute baby porcupine. Lost, she
asks for directions, only to be nearly assaulted by one naked man before being
saved by another. Her best guess is she’s landed among a native tribe in the
middle of a jungle….but odd reflections and energy sources have her questioning
even that assumption.
Theron misses his home in Loraleaf and the brothers of his
heart, Konala and Rekah. His new home, a lonely cave, is his escape from seeing
the woman he loves happily bonded to Loraleaf’s leaders. When he saves Jaelene
from lawbreakers, he finds himself drawn to her intoxicating curiosity and despite
his best efforts, he falls for her. But no matter what his heart wants, he can’t
offer her anything but safety and a reunion with her sister. Unless…
If Theron can interest Konala in Jaelene as well, then he
would only have two more obstacles to conquer, Rekah and Jaelene herself. But
Rekah, hurt by Theron’s betrayal, wants nothing to do with Jaelene, and when
she discovers Theron’s past love, she refuses to be his consolation price. As the
battle with the lawbreakers grows near, Theron realizes this time, he may well
lose more than his heart.
