Cullen Finley, the Paladin known as the “Professor”, has been asked by the injured Barak q’Arc to throw a note over the barrier to Barak’s sister - the same sister that Cullen fought a sword battle with just weeks ago.  A sword battle he can’t get out of his mind because not only was Lusahn q’Arc a brilliant and tireless Other warrior, she was also a beautiful and feminine woman.   When the barrier goes down and Cullen sees Lusahn on the other side, he does what Barak asks except for one thing: he crosses the barrier himself in order to hand deliver the letter to Lusahn.  Looking into her gleaming eyes, Cullen doesn’t regret a thing - so what if the barrier now has him trapped on the Other side?

Lusahn q’Arc is still so very hurt from her brother and his treasonous behavior with the humans.  Finding out he is really alive makes her heart fill with joy but sadness as well because she is on the Other side. The side that Paladin warriors protect with their swords so that no one leaves her world alive.  Agreeing to meet her brother Barak to discuss the illegal smuggling of blue stones from her world to the human world, she is surprised and filled with trepidation when she notices that Barak has not met her at all.  The warrior on the other side of the barrier is the Paladin with whom she had a sword fight with weeks ago that she can’t get out of her mind.   When the barrier does down, Lusahn hesitates to use her sword because the thought of killing such a fine man makes her sad.  So sad that when the barrier goes up and he is trapped in her world, she does the unthinkable.  She takes him home and falls in love. 

The words just shine on the page in Redeemed in Darkness.  Cullen was heroic, virile and charming.  He was also loyal.  Nothing stood in the way of him and his woman, and I pity the man that might have the audacity to try.  Lusahn’s character was almost a contradiction.  She was feminine but tough as nails.  When she loved, she loved with every ounce of her being and the sensuality between her and Cullen was enough to make a nun blush.

Once again readers are being treated to a novel of worth.  Alexis Morgan’s Paladins of Darkness series is a must read and Redeemed in Darkness is magnificent.  I am totally and emphatically hooked on these wonderful warriors and the women who love them.  Mark this one as a Joyfully Reviewed recommended read and run, don’t walk to the nearest bookstore the day it is released!
