When faced with your destined bond you either accept or face the consequences.

Harmony Davis knows what she wants. No one, not even Lennox himself, will stand in her way. Lennox might think it is best to not pursue their attraction but she has foreseen that she cannot be without him. Now she must convince this stubborn man, who would rather be alone in the shadows than face their combined destinies. She has a plan, but he is not cooperating. Subtlety goes out of the window and she confronts him, giving him no retreat from what must be.

Lennox S’chaech longs for her touch, enjoys her wonderful spirit and giving nature, yet he knows he cannot taint her with his darkness. He hasn’t counted on Harmony’s stubbornness. She finds ways to intertwine their lives so he has no escape. Although, if he would admit it, he wasn’t fighting too hard to get away. But he will not take that final step and meld them in that irreversible way.

When resistance meets determination, it will melt under a Dark Callings.

Lennox S’chaech is a Shadower, a creature that takes human form but can reside within the shadows. He has feelings for Harmony Davis, would love to have her as his own but is hesitant to bring her into his world of darkness and shadows.

Harmony Davis is a strong, take no nonsense woman who has her sights set on Lennox and nothing or no one will keep her from getting the man that she wants. Now all she has to do is to put her plan in place and make Lennox see what she already knows, and that is that they were created for one another.

Dark Callings is the third book in the Phoenix Intelligence Agency series, this book could be read as a stand alone, because the book will reference the other stories. However, to get the full enjoyment I would recommend you read the other books in the series.

I loved that the female characters in all three books were women who were strong and capable, maybe not as alpha male as their counterparts but still able to take care of themselves. The worst thing for this reader is when the female character is whiny and needy; Harmony in this book was nothing like that. She knew what she wanted and went after it, and it was nice to see that when needed the character could show her vulnerability.

Taige Crenshaw has a way of taking the reader into her world and surrounding you the reader with characters you want to care about. Lennox and Harmony along with her sister Allure and her mate Vaughn whose story is in Silken Inferno, gives the reader an inside look at the Phoenix Intelligence Agency and the many different beings associated with them.

I thoroughly enjoyed Dark Callings and would recommend this as a summer read. The story line was good because it not only showed the development of their romance but it had a villain who tried to separate the two. The heat between the characters once Lennox accepted his fate was worth the wait, and it was nice to see them finally get together.

Hopefully there will be other books in this series, after all Harmony and Allure has an aunt Storm who is another strong, alpha female.
