Only the man of her destiny will the house accept and the gate open for, when Damon walks through the opened gate and straight into her home Sarah realizes she has meet the man of her destiny but that does not mean she has to accept it.
This novella is the opening to the series; it is short and fast paced. I did find that it did leave some questions, what exactly is the prophecy and what “talents” does each sister have. I am left somewhat confused. Other than that the story is face paced and action packed. Sarah manages the impossible and teaches the man who knows everything a few things about life and himself. Damon is delightfully cranky and Sarah is wise and can tame the beast. You will look forward to what the prophecy has in store for the rest of the sisters!
