Goddess Born

Kari Edgren
Paranormal Romance
Historical Romance

"Other than the Devil himself, Nathan Crowley was the last person I wanted to see today. Then again, the Devil hadn’t been pestering me for months to become his wife."

Selah needs to marry, but not Nathan Crowley who has been pestering her to do so, even threatening to have her banished from the Quaker society.  Rather, Selah needs to marry her cousin, Samuel, from Ireland who already knows about her secret.  Selah is a descendant of the Goddess Brigid, and as such has a natural ability and responsibility to heal others.  But when Selah meets the news of Samuel's death instead of his person, she needs to act fast.  When a far fetched idea brings her and a stranger to matrimony, it also brings lies, danger...and perhaps love.

My Opinion: This was a lovely read that kept my interest throughout the story.  It is a rare find that keeps the paranormal, normal.  It doesn't go off the deep end into craziness, but keeps to the aspects of the paranormal and fits it into society and everyday life of the characters.  The meticulous plot played out well with good tempo, twists, and neat ends.  There was good suspense and a great romance with the main characters that was both believable and oh so sweet.  This book was well written and satisfying and kept me up all night.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
