Mia Sheridan once again
overwhelmed me with yet another powerfully gripping, profoundly touching love
In Grayson’s Vow, Sheridan
pens her characters in such a compelling way, that I was totally consumed
within their love, heartache, passion and joy. I tried my best to prepare
myself emotionally for Grayson and Kira’s romance, but to no avail. Once again
my heart was severed open,
leaving me raw, exposed and feeling completely vulnerable when seeing deep into
the broken pieces of their tattered souls.
Grayson Hawthorn’s mission is to uphold
a vow to preserve his family’s legacy. Kira
Dallaire is a woman running away from her heartless, controlling father.
Both are trapped in financial dire
straits. Situations seem hopeless, until circumstances bring these two
strangers together and make a deal that turn their lives around.
Grayson, you utterly shattered me.
His past was riddled
with sorrow. Throughout the read, we see memories of a childhood filled with
verbal abuse, abandonment, betrayal and neglect. Grayson was tormented on every
level. My heart sank seeing the grief he suffered at the hands of his bastard
of a father, callous stepmom, and his bitch of a mother. These experiences
shaped the often stringent, overly guarded man who constantly clashed with the
likes of Kira. Misery followed him throughout the story, as we discover he spent
five years in prison, ignored by most of his family, only to be release and
straddle with a failing vineyard in financial distress. There were times I
could not take the steady stream of bad luck that plagued him. Yeesh, the poor
guy couldn’t catch a break and that had my head spinning.
As much as I
sympathized with his character, my feelings for him ran hot and cold. There were
endearing moments when Grayson let down his guard and showed his gentle side. I
wanted to coddle him, easing away all the pain in his heart. And then there
were times he drove me nutty with the icy way he treated Kira. I was feeling all
edgy whenever his unkind words cut her deep. However, I am a total sucker for a
damaged man in desperate need of healing. Grayson’s path to overcoming his
hang-ups and ‘dragon-like’ demeanor had me loving his character in the end. I
will admit, I found it tough and lost patience with him from time to time, but
his amorous ways touched me, especially the sexy way he called Kira his little
witch…had me feeling all tingly
bring me peace, little witch,
and you put fire in my blood.”
Kira was a very spirited,
habitually whimsical, flakey-in-a-funny-way type of girl ~ Total opposite of
the tightly wound Grayson.
I felt for all her troubles, dealing with her hardhearted
father, trying to escape his influence. But despite her worries, she was sweet
and funny. Kira had me laughing over all her crazy quirkiness and the
outrageous ways she clashed with Grayson. She was generous to a fault and
sympathetic to his needs. I sometimes found her to be a little too quick at
forgiving whenever Grayson acted like an ass, but that’s exactly what his
character needed. The girl was beyond patient, (which is a good thing) loving
and kind - the perfect weapons a witch needs to face off with a dragon,
teaching him how to trust.
Eloquently written, Grayson’s
Vow is a beautiful fairy-tale love story. Mia Sheridan delivered another
heart touching romance laced with intensity, passion and drama. I always look
forward to losing myself within the worlds she created. For lovers of soul
touching romances and fans of the Sign of Love Series, this is one
read you don not want to miss.
