Review for Legend of Love by Lisa Kessler - 5 out of 5!
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.
MY REVIEW -
I love this series and Lisa Kessler's writing! I love the romance and the suspense! Legend of Love is the 2nd book in the Muse Chronicles, and although each book is about a different Muse and their Guardian, I think it's best to read the first book before this one or you will have some spoilers for the first in this book, and the first book is excellent as well, so no hardship there. The Muses are in danger because someone is out to kill them so they can't open a theater and inspire people to do great things, and to help out the Muses, each has a Guardian that will supposedly help them out, and each of these Guardians will have something special to help the Muses succeed. In this book, we get Callie's story, she is the Muse of Epic Poetry, which means she has the desire to be a bit of a daredevil. Callie also works as a psychiatrist on a military base, and that's where she meets Hunter. Hunter is a soldier that just had a mission where one of his fellow soldiers didn't make it back home, so he needs to get approval to return to service. Hunter and Callie feel an attraction towards each other, but Callie is hesitant because she has a bad experience from her past that affects her. Callie and Hunter are really sweet together and have some super hot moments and some swoon worthy moments, and I love how honest they are with each other; there's no games. Legend of Love is entertaining and I enjoyed the action, and I'm super excited to read the next book!
