J. Adam's book - The Wishing Hour

Today I have the opportunity to write a review for J. Adams newest ebook, The Wishing Hour.

Celine Halston lives an average solitary life, sticking to routine, never taking chances, and never experiencing true love. All of this changes when a handsome immortal enters her life. She has never laid eyes on the man before, but she somehow knows him and instantly trusts him completely. Placing her life in his hands, Celine is taken on an unexpected journey to fulfill a prophecy.

My reaction:
I have recently taken a liking to books that have fantasy mixed with reality. This book also has a healthy dose of clean romance in it too! The whispered thoughts the nameless hero can speak to Celine's mind are sensuous and thrilling. The relationship they share is something made in the heavens. As they run for their lives, love, and provide hope to his people, they weave a compelling tale. As the Woman of Prophesy, the 'enemy' seeks to take her life. Her nameless protector watched over her since her birth. Now, together, they encounter trials they must conquer together.
I would recommend this book if you are looking for something with some good romance in it. There is also the extra-human aspect that I find facinating. I am blown away by how Adam's mind has created this world. Her details are delicious and her images are vivid.

The author:
J. (Jewel) Adams stays crazy busy with her family and writing. She has written several books in different genres and is also a motivational speaker to both youth and adult audiences. She home schools her four kids that are still at home, and between that and conjuring up new ideas for her books, her brain is completely fried most of the time. She and her husband Sean are the parents of eight children, which means they are both losing hair,
but hey, that's what Rogaine is for, right?
In her spare time (when she has any) she likes to curl up with a good book and a healthy stash of orange Tic Tacs. She and her family reside in Utah.
