Man I loved these two and yes their devotion to each other is what the story is all about. He continues to rescue her and while they are interested both are focused on the craziness going on around them. While they share their secrets with each other those secrets may be the death of them. That is until they realize that they are stronger together. There are plenty of secrets and references to the other books in the series but nothing you can’t catch up on in this standalone read with carryover characters and action. Yes the story is carried over from the previous books but even though I have read them out of order I still was able to catch up. Now I get to start the series right and go from the first book. I love the characters and the whole plot is awesome and this author makes you work for it in the best of ways. Great stuff I can’t wait for more.

An awesome sweet and hot paranormal urban fantasy romance by a great author! Devoted to Destiny by Lisa Kessler is a wonderful sweet and hot paranormal urban fantasy romance. It’s the fifth installment in Lisa’s planned seven-book series chronicling the latest rebirth of Zeus’ nine muses and their guardians. When I was a youngster, I remember my quest to read every book on Greek mythology in our local library. LOL! The librarians all knew me and would put aside any new books on mythology that would come in. The subject fascinated me then and it still does now. This is the story of sexy carpenter Mason Knowles and the Muse of History, Clio Clarke. Not thwarted by, and in defiance of the continuing danger posed by the Order of Kronos, Clio and her sister muses are back to focusing on getting their theatre renovated and open for business. Clio wouldn’t be alive today if it weren’t for the heroic efforts of the theatre’s talented carpenter, Mason. He miraculously saved Clio’s life in the fire set by the Order. To her dismay, Clio finds that she’s strongly attracted to Mason, but she won’t allow herself to give in to their chemistry as she’s holding herself back for her guardian. Her sister muses who have found their guardians, have all fallen in love with them. Clio doesn’t want to ruin what she could have with her guardian by falling for Mason. Of course, if Mason knew that she actually has the Muse of History inside her, he’d probably think she were crazy and run. Mason holds secrets of his own. While he’s good at what he does and is extremely reliable, his top priority is tracking his cousin’s murderer. He’s been doing so for years and feels that he’s finally close to making her pay for her crime. He’s also strongly attracted to Clio, but his mission to make his cousin’s murderer pay must come first and he can’t allow himself to be sidetracked. Besides he harbors another dark skeleton in his closet – one that would mean that an HEA for him and Clio cannot be in the cards. I loved both primary characters, enjoyed catching up with the other muses and their guardians and welcomed an influx of a few interesting new and/or turned characters too! Not surprisingly, our villain wasn’t likeable in the least. There are a multitude of secrets held dear in this tale. Will Clio and Mason get the message that they are stronger together before it’s too late? Devoted to Destiny can work well as a stand alone read if that is your preference. That said, I recommend that you read the series in order because while each book has its own fully contained HEA and danger element, all the books are linked by the main plot which has been building with each new release. Lisa Kessler is one of my favorite authors. Seriously, I have inhaled everything she has published and I continue to eagerly look forward to each new book! Devoted to Destiny is a well-written, engrossing and emotional love story with exciting character development, surprising twists and a danger plot that will keep readers on the edge of their seats! Fans can only hope that the muses and their guardians are able to stay ahead of the perils ahead. I’m holding my breath waiting for the next book in the series which will be Tera’s story. She is the Muse of Dance and, her book, Dance of the Heart, will release June 2018! I can’t wait! My full review is published at Reading Between the Wines Book Club. Please check it out there!

Devoted to Destiny is a fantastic addition to this series. This fast paced story is filled with excitement, energy and love. We get answers and new questions. Mason and Clio are a terrific couple. I recommend having read the previous books before reading this one but it can be read standalone.

This is the fifth book in the Muse Chronicles. One of the things I really enjoy about this series is how well Ms. Kessler writes. Her characters, plot, and just the sheer emotions are fabulous, and this book just elicits so many emotions, you feel like a wreck at the end. Not a bad wreck but a good one, and as with all the books in the series, this one made me cry in a good way. The love and tenderness Clio and Marsh had for each other really shines through. I’m not even a very sappy person, and this book just got to me. For less emotional things, we also learn new items about the gods and goddesses which change the way the sisters will have to deal with obstacles and brought up new problems they will have to deal with in future stories. I really enjoyed the twist of one of the characters being a werewolf, throwing in a whole new dimension to the world. I am so excited to see what’s going to happen next and see the next couple become an item. The author is just great with words, and I wish more people read her. If you are already a fan, you will love this one. If you love romances/adventure, you really need to try this author and series! Highly recommend! Thanks to the author for the e-copy which I voluntarily reviewed.

4.5 Stars I’m a huge fan of Lisa Kessler’s Muse Chronicles series. Unlike the two previous books that required you to read them in order, Devoted to Destiny can be a standalone read. However, you will get information from the previous books that could be considered as spoilers. Devoted to Destiny shows the power of characters. It’s been stated by Lisa that Clio Clarke, the Muse of History, wasn’t supposed to survive one of the previous books. But she and her hero perservered. That strength and determination is on full display in this story. I found Devoted to Destiny to be so different from the previous books in this series. For starters, Mason Knowles is aware that muses are real and that immortals walk amongst us. Secondly, Mason has been bestowed the ability to shift into a werewolf. While Clio tends to use her books as shields to protect herself from the rest of the world, she carries the spirit of a lion inside of her. Together, these two are fun, playful, and passionate. They have a huge need to protect and stand by each other. I’ve stated in the past that Breath of Passion and Light of the Spirit were game changers for this series. I don’t truly think the same can be said for Devoted to Destiny, but that doesn’t mean that what happens within the pages of this book doesn’t contribute to the overall story arc of this series. In fact, I believe the events from this book will have a huge impact on the rest of the series. I just have no idea what that impact truly is. I just know the Gods and muses are in near proximity to each other and a war of epic proportions is brewing. **Received a copy of the book from the author and reviewed voluntarily.**
