Synopsis

HE WAS GUILTY

Dustin is a convicted murderer.
He’s mournful, bitter, drowning in a sea of self-pity with nothing left to lose.
The church has sent me to bring him into the fold.
Bound by my namesake, Saint Odilia,
I should be defending my spirituality and morality with my life.
It only took a few letters to change everything.

HE FOUND INNOCENCE

Odilia saved my life and gave me her heart.
But I’m still mournful, bitter and drowning in self-pity.
Only now I have something to lose… her.
Gaining my freedom was supposed to be the hard part, but it’s going to take much more for me to be worthy of a saint.

LOVE WILL BE FREED

4 Emotional Stars!

This engrossing romantic suspense read gave me all the feels in so many different ways. The story read a little like one of the more suspenseful Alexa Riley books, except with more length, depth, and dimension.

In spite of his actions in the past, I felt for Dustin’s predicament. Within the first 2% of the book, I had tears in my eyes for him. He was definitely a criminal, but he wasn’t as heartless and vicious as he tried to come across. His response to what happened to him was realistic and sucked me in immediately.

Odilia was a character who could have been annoying and unrelatable, but she wasn’t. She was warm, caring and persistent, and I loved that about her. Coming from a religious background myself, I understood her resistance to breaking her vows and becoming “impure,” but I loved that she couldn’t resist Dustin and gave her heart over to him completely. And when Dustin finally corrupted his “Doll,” there was no turning back.

These two characters held diametrically opposing belief systems and backgrounds, but their journey is a perfect example of the phrase, “Love conquers all.”

I thoroughly enjoyed this debut novel from Misty Walker and look forward to reading more from her!
