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 husband.

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.
