Darrios Derosa is a loner, out to rid his world of the murderous beasts in Celio's Outer Rim. They took his best friend—he won't allow them to take anyone else. The last thing Darrios needs is an alluring woman under his protection—especially one in denial. She wants to be taken home, but doesn't realize what she's asking.
Darrios promises to take Maggie to Inland, where she'll be safe, and from there to Avascon, where she can get home. But first they have to fight the monsters and the fire...the one blazing up between them.
Return to Celio is an adventurous tale full of magic, time travel, and some sizzling sexual tension between two people from a different world and different time. Maggie begins a venture she'd never imagine or dream of, but it's all too real.
Darrios is a hero to swoon for. He's there to take Maggie and protect her, but who is going to protect her from him and the longing he has inside for her? You'll have to read to find out.
The premise and well-done world building in this story intrigued me. It's a mix of everything. Action, science fiction/fantasy, love, and suspense. This book will appeal to eclectic reader.
