Daniel “Morgue” Morgan is an Expeller.
A killer of demons, Morgue is forced to live every day with
the darkness in his soul that comes from having to hunt and
kill the forces of evil. When Madigan Carter comes into his
life, she’s like a ray of sunshine. Against his better
judgment, Morgue is powerfully attracted to her. But
Madigan isn’t all that she appears to be on the surface.
She happens to be an Expeller as well, new to her powers and
in need of training. Though he regrets it, Morgue is just
the man to teach how Madigan to be a killer.
Madigan doesn’t believe in demons,
vampires, or any of the otherworldly creatures Morgue and
his two partners tell her about. But she can’t deny that
everything they tell her is coming to pass and she isn’t
dumb enough to refuse the training she so obviously needs.
As Madigan trains to be an Expeller, she becomes
increasingly drawn to her irritable, but irresistibly sexy
mentor. As the fights, and the passion, heat up, will the
desire that binds Madigan and Morgue to one another be
enough to keep them together?
Hunting demons and vampires has never
been so seductive, so exciting as it is in The Chosen.
Gwen Hayes has delivered an action-packed, utterly sensual
read that had me spellbound from start to finish.
For someone who believes himself to be
incapable of tender emotions, Morgue does a fantastic job
proving otherwise. He’s rough around the edges and his
gentleness is covered by surliness, but it’s because of
these contradictions that he made me melt. Madigan, in
turn, is Morgue’s perfect match on every level. She’s
tough, smart, and doesn’t back down when Morgue tries to
push her away. Light to his darkness, each impacts the
other over the course of the story, blending together
beautifully as their romance develops and I simply loved
watching it happen.
Morgue’s partners, Bridget and Drake, are equally
appealing. Already addicted to Ms. Hayes’ Serendipity Falls
novels after reading Bridget’s story, The Fallen, I
was delighted to get to see Bridget before her book takes
place. Fans of The Fallen will get a brief glimpse
of Bridget and Talon’s relationship as it was before their
story, and readers new to the series will likely be inspired
to read their book after seeing the sparks that fly between
the two. For my part, The Chosen left me
eager for Drake’s story, which I desperately hope Ms. Hayes
will write. By turns tender and tough, The Chosen
is an enthralling read that is not to be missed!
