Title: A Sorceress of His Own
Series: The Gifted Ones #1
Author: Dianne Duvall

From the New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed Immortal Guardians series comes an enchanting new series full of romance, danger, and loyalty: The Gifted Ones

Since the day Lord Dillon earned his spurs, rumors of his savagery on the battlefield have preceded him into every room, stilling tongues and sparking fear. Weary of battle, he wishes only to find a woman he can wed who will approach him not with fear, but with the tenderness that has been absent from his life for so long. Yet only the wisewoman seems invariably at ease in his presence. Perhaps because she garners the same fear in others that he does himself.

For seven years, Alyssa has been by Lord Dillon's side, counseling him from the shadows, healing him with her hands, and staving off the worst of his loneliness while his fearsome reputation keeps others at bay. Blessed--or cursed--with gifts that label her a sorceress, she is forced to conceal her youth and the love she harbors for him beneath umbral robes that lead Dillon and his people to believe she is the same aged wisewoman who served his father.

All is revealed, however, and passions flare when an enemy threatens Dillon's life and Alyssa sacrifices everything to save him. When Dillon discovers that the wisewoman is far from elderly, he is instantly entranced. And, as he and Alyssa work together to defeat an enemy bent on destroying them both, Dillon will risk anything--even the wrath of his king--to be with her.


This story begins when Alyssa takes over her grandmother's place at Lord Dillon's side. She has abilities that she uses to help Lord Dillon, but she's been in love with him for years. 

When something horrible happens to Lord Dillon, and she does everything she can to heal him, she almost kills herself in the process, and Lord Dillon finally sees that she's beautiful. 

These two will do everything they can to end up together no matter what. And as secrets come to light, things get more interesting for the couple. 

This book was really good! I adored the fantasy of it all. I thought Alyssa's powers were awesome, and I enjoyed her relationship with Lord Dillon. 

The only issue I had was that Dillon was a Lord and they made a big deal about her not being noble. I thought that was dumb, but I guess I could understand it. 

Other than that this book was very interesting, and very good!
