After a disastrous blind date leaves Alexis stranded, she hits up a handsome stranger in the restaurant for his cell phone. She connects to more than the cab company. One look from him has her pulse racing and other notable body parts standing at attention. Their instant chemistry has her night making a turn for the better.

A Warrior of Anubis since 1920, Konner finds the loneliness of his life getting to him. And being celibate for the last five years certainly isn’t helping matters any. But the sexy damsel in distress stirs passions long buried. He has to have her—in his life and in his bed. She’s everything he’s ever wanted in his long existence. But the nature of who he is could end this love affair before he has a chance at forever.

To help battle the evil that lurked in the mortal realm, Anubis created his warriors. Each one was taken from a battlefield, near death, crying out for another chance at life. Only the pure of heart did the Egyptian god of the underworld choose. Men who would serve him, and would help bring the mortals who would harm others of their world before Anubis for judgement. With their last dying breath, the warriors would pledge themselves to Anubis, bound for all eternity. In return, the god of the underworld granted them immortality and the means to defeat the ones who preyed upon others. Marked as one of Anubis’ own, the warriors were sent out into the world, never to meet another of their kind, always alone.

I loved the premise for this series. I’ve always been fascinated with the lore that surrounds the Egyptian culture, the gods they worshiped and so forth. So naturally, once I read the blurb I grabbed this one up right away. I’m so glad that I did because this was a wonderful love story.

Konner is one of Anubis’ warriors sent to fight evil. He faces evil every night in his duty to Anubis. Now the mighty warrior is felled by a fair damsel in distress. After a blind date from hell Alexis is stranded. She borrows a cell phone from a stranger and is mesmerized by his handsome face and his sinfully sexy voice. Their chemistry is undeniable. There is a good reason for the attraction they both feel. Alexis is Konner’s mate. Konner had been feeling that his life was empty. After his long solitary life, Konner is ecstatic to find his mate. He searches for a way to explain the truth about himself without freaking her out. His love life isn’t his biggest worry, though. It seems that a spellcasting demon has targeted him. Now he has to worry about the safety of his new mate.

A Warrior To Love is a steamy love story. It’s well written with unique characters that will captivate the readers. It is a little bit short for my own reading preferences but just right for those times when you need to escape for a couple of hours. I loved it. I’d recommend A Warrior To Love as well as the other books in this exciting series.
