BOOK REVIEW/RELEASE DAY: "Legend Of Love" by Lisa Kessler

The Prophecy - “Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse.” 
Callie O'Connor's life has never been the same since the Muse of Epic Poetry came alive inside of her. Now she's on the other side of the country, working as civilian psychologist for the Navy, and leading her Muse sisters in their quest to reopen the Theater of the Muses.
But nothing could have prepared her for Hunter Armstrong. He's a Navy Seal, driven, confident, and dangerous. And he plans to do more than just protect her.
The gods couldn't have picked a better Guardian. But as Hunter soon discovers, Callie has some skeletons of her own in the closet, and loving her could lead to his destruction.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I couldn't wait to read about Callie, because the Muse of Epic Poetry had to be one dramatic lady with epic inner monologues. Callie is a great character: she's a leader, smart, if just a bit dour at times. But upon meeting her Guardian something gets awakened inside of her and really gives her this intense spark.
Hunter, the Guardian, is someone I know a lot of readers will be swooning over. He's a Navy Seal, sexy, and full of confidence. He's an alpha male if I ever saw one. I didn't like him as much as all of Kessler's other leading men, but he's still a great character and exactly what one would think of when they think of a Guardian.
The plot has a lot of danger, secrets revealed, and more mystery than its predecessor. I love the Kronos followers the most, however, because you can feel their malevolence through the page as you read. They are an endless source of mystery, and that is where my only issue with this book comes to play: I wanted more. I know it's a paranormal romance, but I think this book could have done with more danger than sex. Kessler writes some of the best dark characters and plot lines I have ever read.
Her books are always a treat, and Legend of Love is no different! Bring on book three! (But first I need Sebastian's book in the Moon Series, please. hahaha)

4/5--a fun, sexy, slightly dark read.

Purchase Legend Of Love as an ebook wherever books are sold!
