On the run from her abusive husband,
Lila Hayes is staying in a small Missouri town, trying to
decide what to do next. She’s not sure where her life is
going, she just knows it won’t lead back to Clayton, her
One wonderful thing about her new home
is the fantastic painting on the wall, which features a
darkly handsome man that haunt’s Lila’s dreams. When the man
steps out of the painting and into her reality, Lila is
stunned, and thrilled.
Soon she finds herself attracted to two
men, Arthur of Sefyll, a Druid who has long been tied to the
painting, and Sam Walker, sheriff of the small town who
comes to her rescue after a traffic accident. Both men are
perfect, and there is a huge attraction there. Now they just
have to figure out what to do about it while fighting the
monster from Lila’s past that wants to possess her.
As The Lady Wishes is a
heartfelt tale about a woman who is battered, but not
totally beat down. I loved Lila’s spirit, and the way she
faces her challenges head-on, refusing to let herself be
controlled by Clayton’s abuse. The way she welcomes first
Arthur, and then Sam into her life was heartwarming and
beautifully done. Needless to say, the two men are
fantastic, too, both of them giving of their love without
reservation, which made them perfect heroes in my book.
Fans of the Torrid Tarot line will love
As The Lady Wishes as much as I did, a perfect
blend of the talents of two very talented authors.
