Only a heartless monster would disregard his sudden misfortune and continue to follow this path. The summer’s gone and so is the long-lost soulmate that he let slip through his talented fingers.
Perhaps my eerie secrets shouldn’t have stopped me the first time around. After all, the calligrapher-monk and his witch lover found a way, so why not us?
I’ve already overcome so many obstacles. I’ll do anything in my power to get her back. I fear nothing. Not the distance that I voluntarily put between us. Not the rival that she intentionally put in my way. Not the time that we’re unfortunately wasting.
She’s been offered a new life in New York, but that won’t stop me from showing her that appearances can be deceiving.
We may be apart for now, but our attraction is meant to be, so we’re inevitable. Right?
Getting the opportunity to live alongside my soulmate once again would make me more than content. After all, no other host has had the joy of finding her, and I won’t be the one to let her slip through my fingers. Actually, that might not be true. My soul felt something different this time, maybe because of my proximity to my soulmate, but it felt similar pulls in the past. I can only imagine that it was due to the closeness of Deirdre’s reincarnated soul. Some of them probably lived in the same time frame, yet because of geography, age difference or inaccurate knowledge, the star-crossed lovers never met in person before Rose and me. Well, until Rose ran away from me.
Hope Irving lives in Paris, France, with her supportive husband and creative teenage
daughter. The French indie author spent a couple of years in Texas, where she earned her MBA. With many friends, relatives, and readers in the States, the US has a big place in her heart. Although French is her mother tongue, she chose to write her novels in English because it simply feels right for her characters.
Hope’s suspenseful and complex love stories are modern fairytales that feature an unconventional Prince Charming and a headstrong heroine. A natural introvert, she enjoys tormenting her flawed characters with a hint of darkness and sometimes magical elements. Still, her heart melts when love conquers all.
Her work has been described as “genre-defying,” “refreshingly unique,” and “an intriguing rollercoaster read.”
