Author: K.H. LeMoyne

Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy / Paranormal Romance

Rating: 10/10

The only difference between fate and destiny is choice.

Tsu Halan, Guardian defense master, has honed his skills and waited patiently over the centuries for the covenant’s promise of a mate to share his soul and a family to cherish. Close enough to taste fulfillment, the dark echoes of the past threaten with danger and death.

Jai Dashkov harbors her own painful secrets of harsh betrayal and tender loss. Her desperate search to reclaim her life doesn’t allow room in her heart to deviate for love.

Together they are stronger than apart, but the promise of the covenant is a perpetual test. One that Tsu and Jai must conquer in time or suffer an eternity for their failure.

THE GUARDIANS OF EDEN:
A race of beings created in a Sanctum at the far edge of Eden. Co-existing with mankind, they safeguarded human souls and the promise of eternity—until a virus killed all over the age of eighteen. The surviving children fled to the Sanctum for protection, children raising children without the full legacy of their history and knowledge. Two hundred years of solitude have produced a race of semi-immortals fortified with powers and intellect but lacking the mates who will make them whole and allow them to fulfill their covenant with mankind.

Destiny’s Mark is an intriguing read from an author who’s obviously no new name to the industry. It’s obvious that K.H. LeMoyne has written some books so far, mostly in the urban fantasy/paranormal romance genre, and it shows. This book was an excellent read: well-researched, great plot, intriguing characters and a stunning romance story. Needless to say I’m thoroughly impressed.

Jai is looking for her daughter. When she was a teenager, she got pregnant, and her father sold her child. Now she’s contacted a renowned investigator, who costs heaps of money, but she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get her kid back. But when she walks home from the investigator’s office, she’s robbed and her hard-earned money is stolen.

She runs into Tsu, who helps her after she gets robbed, and his sister Quan. Quan offers her a job at a refugee center for abused women, which Jai accepts.

But the moment Guardian Tsu lays eyes upon Jai, he knows she’s the woman he’s been destined to be with since forever. But Jai won’t accept anyone’s help, and she’s not willing to open up to the stranger…So Tsu will have to take it slow if he wants to win her heart.

I actually liked that things went slower than in other romance novels. The relationship took time to develop, and that was great. I loved the setting – Hong Kong. How many urban fantasy books are set in Asia? Hardly any. Or feature Asian character? I can count them on one hand.

Double points for originality, triple points for excellent writing and another few bonus points for keeping me on the edge of my seat for the entire ride. Thank you for this amazing book, K.H. LeMoyne, and I will definitely look at your other ones!
