The truth might ruin his dreams—or make them come true.
When Zane moves into an old gothic brownstone, he discovers the house comes equipped with a caretaker—Kit, who lives in the basement. Zane is immediately drawn to the charming and attractive Kit. But Kit is much more than he seems. He is a two-hundred-year-old half-human, half–red-fox spirit who guards a Gate between the mortal and spirit worlds—a fact Zane should recognize, but doesn’t.
Orphaned at a young age, Zane never learned he comes from a long line of mystical Keepers. Kit needs Zane’s help to protect the Gate, but how can he tell Zane of his legacy when that will crush Zane’s dreams of traveling the world? If he takes up the mantle, Zane will be bound to the Gate, unable to leave it. But when Zane realizes Kit’s true nature, and his own, he’ll have to make a choice—fight to protect Kit and the Gate, or deny his destiny and any chance of a future with Kit.
I was hooked on this story. It’s uniqueness caught me and it’s characters held me tight.
Although Zane was the guy that wasn’t “different” and sort billed as normal and boring I liked him that way. It showed the contrast between him and Kit so much the better. One not taking the spotlight away from the other but showing even more clear their roles regarding protecting the gate even better. Kit was magical and giving and shy and beautiful. He tried to be more to his Keeper, to be the thing that kept them there but with Zane his feelings changed. He didn’t want to trap him knowing his dreams were bigger than the house Kit was not allowed to leave.
The descriptions of not just the house that Kit lived in but of Kit and the world beyond the gate was a huge part of this story and it was so well written that I felt that world and lived that world with every word in this book. I loved Ren, Zane’s sister, even with the little bit she was visible in the story, she made things interesting but definitely not as much as Lor who was mischief and fun but for a demon his care for Kit shined through.
The chemistry between these two was sweet and slow but perfect for the Dreamspun series since that’s exactly what you should expect going into one. I loved them together, I loved them learning each other and saving each other, Their relationship made this fun to read. Oh and the magic because I love me some magic!
