5 STARS HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!


Synopsis from www.breedespain.com

A prodigal son
A dangerous love
A deadly secret . . .
  "I stood back and watched his movements. Daniel had that way about him that could shut me down in an instant. . . . I kicked the gravel a couple of times and worked up my courage again. “Tell me . . . I mean . . . why did you come back? Why now, after all this time?”
 
Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared—the night she found her brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in blood. But she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night really held. And when Daniel returns three years later, Grace can no longer deny her attraction to him, despite promising Jude she’ll stay away.
As Grace gets closer to Daniel, her actions stir the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind Jude and Daniel's dark secret . . . and the cure that can save the ones she loves. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it—her soul.

The Dark Divine was another  book that many had highly recommended for me to read as soon as possible. From the first chapter I knew I was not going to be disappointed.  The imagery Bree conjured up in my mind was fantastic and I could easily see the old walnut tree from Grace's bedroom window; the steepled roof of the parish church and even the creek bed and ravine. 
The desperation that Grace feels in wanting Daniel and yet not wanting to go against her family was something I felt strongly. As was the pent up hatred Jude felt towards Daniel.  Poor Daniel.... his life has frankly sucked for the most part of it.... and to top it all off he is now faced with the horrendous dilemma of allowing Grace back into his life for reasons he would rather not be his reality.
Bree has a wonderful gift and I am thankful that she shares this with us in her books.  I wait impatiently for The Lost Saint.  By the end of TDD you just know some serious action and a whole lotta smexi is going to take place!

Enjoy!
