Becky (beckysbusyreading) | 67 comments I just finished Her Sanctuary. I like P.Q.'s style of writing and would probably read future books of hers.

First off this book was steamy, I was not expecting it (not that I mind)to be that steamy.

What I liked about this book was how 2 deeply scarred people find their soul mates. These 2 people deserved their HEA with their histories; Shannon being sold at the age of 16 to an abusive old coot, and Seth with his family dying in a car accident while he was driving is enough for most people to never want to accept love again. But lucky for them they find a true deep love with each other.

Joseph was a real piece of work; I was rather surprised that he never did rape Shannon. I kept expecting that he would repeatedly rape her once abducted her. But I was happy that when he decided to rape her that Seth was there to prevent him.

I have to admit the whole idea that Seth could project himself into Shannon’s prison room, touch her, get off, and have it recorded a little weird. I guess I wasn’t expecting any mythical experiences to occur in this book and was taken aback.

I'll stop there for now. What are your opinions?

Lisarenee | 7659 comments I finished Her Sanctuary last night. I really liked it. I truly didn't know what to expect when I began reading this book and was pleasantly surprised. I found the two characters very interesting with their different backgrounds. One thing they had in common was that they were both unjustly accused of killing their spouses.

Becky, I agree I was pretty surprised at Seth being able to project himself into Shannon's room/prison was very different. The fact it was recorded was interesting to me. One of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dream-Hunter's books did something similar, but it wasn't caught on tape. The medicine man being hinted to as the Wolf was interesting as well. I kind of wish there had been an prologue added with an Indian legend included in it that would foreshadow the projection/wolf aspect.

Joseph was definitely a believable bad guy. I liked how P.Q. portrayed him and could see he was a good guy doing nothing wrong in his own mind. Every little thing Shannon did was twisted by him to fit what he wanted to see. I also am surprised that during the time Shannon was under his control he didn't rape her. It seemed to take forever for Seth to reach her. I also was surprised a helicopter or some other vehicle couldn't be dispatched to pick them up once Shannon and Joseph had been located. Must ask P.Q. about this.
