Lilly’s gift of reading the heart seemed like a curse, but when she discovered her gift was linked to an old, Russian prophecy it changed everything. What she never questioned, though, was her own heart.
When the prophecy pulls Lilly back to Russia and demands to be fulfilled she is torn between love and loyalty. She must make the most difficult decision of her life and choose between the two. But Lilly’s decision is farther reaching than even she is willing to acknowledge. It stretches from East to West - from the past to the future.
Lilly discovers there’s more to the old prophecy than she realized and enemy forces are bent on stopping it from unfolding.
One thing is certain - there will be casualties. And sparing those closest to her may be impossible. While Seth attempts to shield Lilly from the truth, Nikolai reveals secrets that could change everything.
As Lilly falls into the arms of Russia she must decide: will love or loyalty reign? And can she live with the consequences? Two sides compete for Lilly’s heart and she must find the answers she needs before her enemies find her.
This is the second in the series. I fell for the characters in the first book Return the Heart and have continued my love affair with them through the second book as well. In this story Lilly and her friends spend almost all of the book in Russia. Lilly discovers secrets about her heritage and the prophecy that sets so many questions in motion.
More action, more romance and an ancient prophecy lie within the pages of Shield the Heart. This book was wonderful and I can't wait to read the final book in the series. I'm giving this little gem 4 1/2 heartfelt kisses!
