DUSK (Stronghold #2) received 4 stars at Sizzling Hot Books!
I believed in the relationship between Lucy and Solomon. Ms. Leaf did a wonderful job showing the different layers of these characters so that I understood their motivations, their fears and their strengths. As a result, their connection was strong and made complete sense to me. All of the humans and sentries were likeable people that I could care about and root for.
The battle against the aliens was a nail biter and filled with drama and suspense. Ms. Leaf built up the tension at the perfect pace so as to excite but not overwhelm the reader. Once I began reading, I became engrossed and could not put the book down until it was finished.

Lucy Soren never expected to live through an alien attack. Months later, her nightmares won’t let her forget the pain she suffered, or her strange attraction to the man who saved her from certain death.
Sentry Solomon Dusk never wanted to heal a mortal woman, but he can’t forget Lucy’s bravery or beauty. Even though he vowed to never again fall in love, Lucy attracts him like no other woman ever has before.
When the alien Spiders again slip past the Sentries’ defenses, Solomon’s only thought is to protect the woman he refuses to love. Lucy’s only hope is to run from the danger to her heart. Unfortunately, the fate of the planet rests on their ability to work together. Will their fear of commitment keep them from saving the planet… and each other?
