Description

Fleeing her recent past, Lilliah Woods finds refuge in the anonymity of the present day inner-city slums. As she settles into the seedy apartment she must now call home, she meets mysterious Marek Jamison when he materializes in her doorway demanding to know who she is. From that moment, he becomes a guardian and guide as she gradually discovers his hidden world. As their relationship develops, Lilliah learns of Marek's dark past and of a brothers' quarrel he has been embroiled in for years. The quarrel turns into a larger battle of good and evil, liberty versus tyranny, and the separation of love and lust. With Lilliah as the ultimate prize, the deadly conflict reaches out to threaten her family, and the outcome of the final battle will determine her fate. Lilliah must embark on an unexpected path that teaches her to trust in the man she has come to love, and give of herself as she never thought she could....show more

Our customer reviews

The Scent of a Soul by Jennifer Thompson Twenty six-year-old, Lilliah Woods, leaves her home of Winnemucca, Nevada to escape her ex-fianc�?�©, Ryan Vitger. With little money, she moves into the slums to begin a new life. She has a mysterious neighbor, Marek Jamison, whom neighbors start to refer to as her guardian angel, because he is continually getting Lilliah out of trouble. Lilliah is a genuine person that you cannot help but like. She is very giving and considerate of others even though she does not have much herself. She seems to have a knack for getting into trouble, somewhat due to her naivety. Marek Jamison is hardly the guardian angel he is dubbed, but he is a good man/monster. He is fascinated by Lilliah's scent. A scent he has not smelled since 1678, the same aroma of his deceased wife, Kirstie. Lilliah's fragrance not only attracts Marek but others of his kind. Unfortunately, it attracts the worst fiend, his brother, Magnus. Jennifer Thompson does an exceptional job with her debut novel, A Scent of Souls. She paints a vivid picture and does an extraordinary job with her character development. I look forward to reading her future work. I also congratulate her on being a 2013 HOLT Medallion Award of Merit Recipient. ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review.show more
