Brilliant Rosamund Hill has lived her life buried in academia, discounting the legend of the Chosen as a myth?then Aaron Eagle shows up at her door. With the promise of a love that will defy fate itself, Rosamund is forced to confront the truth about the Chosen?and the dangerous man who sweeps her into a world of dark secrets.

Rosamund Hill lives her life in libraries, she is a expert in antiquities and knows how to properly treat them. Both her parents have passed away, and she is alone in the world. Then a handsome stranger comes in to visit her, Aaron Eagle, inquiring about a prophecy. Aaron Eagle is part of “The Chosen Ones” and in search of the prophecy. He brings Rosamund along with him to locations all over the world in search of it. But there is a evil force at work called the “Others” whose goal is to destroy the Chosen Ones. Its literally a fight between good and evil. Rosamund Hill never realized what she was getting into at first, but as they travel the world together and fight evil forces, she is drawn to the unsettling man beside her throughout the whole journey. There is also a passion that awakens between the both of them that neither anticipated. And a love that is so deep and strong can overcome any obstacle they face together.

This is the first book that I have read from the Chosen One Series, and I am really looking forward to the rest of the series. This was a surprisingly good read, I didn’t know if I would like it as well as her other books that I have read. Most of what I have read from her were her historical’s so this one was a good surprise to be sure. There were times that it didn’t flow smoothly through the whole thing, but I really enjoyed reading most of it. I loved how even though Rosamund has no experience with men at all, and now she is faced with one and she doesn’t know how to react most of the time, it was definitely at times very amusing. This definitely sounds like a intense and fun series, and looking forward to reading the rest of the series

About Christina Dodd

Readers become writers, and Christina Dodd has always been a reader. She reads everything, but because she loves humor, she likes romance best.

A woman wants things like world peace, a clean house, and a deep and meaningful relationship based on mutual understanding and love. A man wants things like a Craftsman router with attachments, undisputed control of the TV remote, and a red Corvette which will miraculously make his bald spot disappear. So when Christina's first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to quit work and write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?

Ha! It took ten years, two children and three completed manuscripts before her first novel, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW, was published. In the twenty-three years since, her novels have been translated into 25 languages, won Romance Writers of America's prestigious Golden Heart and RITA Awards and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Christina Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle (11/18/05, # 13 Down: Romance Novelist named Christina — her mother was very impressed.) With more than 15 million of her books in print, Publishers Weekly praises her style that 'showcases Dodd's easy, addictive charm and steamy storytelling.'

Christina Dodd is married to a man with all his hair and no Corvette, but many Craftsman tools.
