PURE HEALING is an interesting paranormal romance with a great love story. The relationship between the tortured Valerius and the Healer, Rain, evolves over a decade and must overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles making it all the more sweet when these two finally come together. The tension of their hit and miss relationship kept me fascinated and my fingers crossed for them. At times I wanted to skip the rest of the story and jump ahead to their next scene because I was that involved in their romance.

The rest of the story is very intense and entertaining as well. The Pure Ones are at war with the vampires and the young queen Sophie and her inner circle must protect their race from being devastated.

Their mysterious opponent and the vampires who come to the Pure Ones' assistance could have been more developed and it was a bit much that every character found themselves attracted to another but the story was well worth reading. Received from the publisher for an honest review.

Rating: 4.0

Heat Rating: Hot - Detailed sex scenes, profanity or graphic violence.

Definitely worth reading. Great characters and plot. Author has a very good writing style, and I actually had moments where I teared up.

I'm not going to start out this review like I would normally do by giving a bit of an overview of the story. The synopsis does that well enough. What I will start out by saying is that I loved this book.

Quite a few characters are introduced and have their own bits of story that need to be told so that it can lead up to the bigger picture. But what I loved most was the story of Rain and Valerius. He had a brutal past that left him unable to endure being touched. A mere touch causes him extreme physical pain. It's really quite heartbreaking to learn of exactly what happened to him at such a young age and how, despite a connection that he feels towards Rain from the moment he sees her, he not only doesn't feel he is worthy enough to be her Consort, he doesn't believe that he can give her what she need to survive. Rain didn't have an easy human life either. I found myself crying a number of times while reading this book.You just can't help feeling for Valerius. His past, his current struggles, his self-doubt. For me, it was rather heart-wrenching to read.

Then there is the part of the story that involves Sophia, the Pure Ones' Queen. She almost seems like your typical teenager. She goes to school, thinks about boys a lot, but Sophia isn't typical. She's guarded at all times, and she's training in combat for a war that is coming between Pure Ones and vampires. At school Sophia meets Ere, a teaching assistant to one of her professors. He's interested in Sophia, and she's smitten with him, but there seems to be a mystery surrounding him.

And, of course, there is the possible war with vampires that I mentioned! The vampires seem to be trying to destroy all of the Pure Ones, even if it means turning Pure Ones into vampire assassins to do it.

This was a beautifully written, unique tale that I very much enjoyed. The world that the author built was one that I'd never experienced in any other book and I really appreciated its uniqueness. The characters were solid and sympathetic and the storyline strong and interesting.

I do love a hard yet broken hero and Valerius was exactly that. Born a Roman slave (gladiator) and given the choice to become a Pure One after his death, the man has got a lot of ghosts. It was obvious from the beginning that his pain ran deep and was related to intimacy and sex. It was very hard to go on his journey with him and relive his pain, but it was also enthralling and hard to look away. As harsh as his background was and as much as he suffered, I rooted for him, wanting Valerius to find some sort of happiness after several lifetimes worth of pain. I will say that one of the reasons that I decided to knock a star off of my review was because of a very brutal rape scene in the book. I know that this turns a lot of readers off and while I am usually not squeamish, I felt like this book took it just a tad too far. A little less description of the details and I still would have got the point. Valerius is brutally abused but TWO people (man and woman) and it is just as heartbreaking as if you reading about it happening to a woman. I will say that even though that particular scene was hard to read, it also evoked a lot of emotion in me and I think that is the mark of a talented author. The despair of the main hero at that point was tangible and if nothing else, I could appreciate that much. This was the only such scene in the book, and thank goodness. It didn't affect my overall enjoyment or make me want to stop reading the book.

4.5/5 stars

Ahhhhhh!!!!! I know I am stingy with the 5 stars, but this one came soooo close! I will explain why in a sec!
This novel was fantastic! It was extremely interesting, with a wide cast of mystical, and intriguing characters, and juicy, passionate romance. The intensity between Valerius and Rain made my heart palpitate. The back story of Valerius was intricately explored, and you just want to weep for his pain and hope he finds the healing that he yearns for, wishing that Rain makes him whole... but there are many obstacles in their way. Rain herself has a painful past of her own, while shouldering immense responsibilities for her race as the Healer, never 'allowed' to give her heart to anyone without dire consequences... and she yearns for her warrior with an intensity that left me feeling ragged, and hopeful of a way for it to happen.

On the sex-ohhhh-meter... ya the scenes were pretty hot, though I found the emphasis of Valerius' uhmmm... man parts... to be quite cliche. It's not the size of the wave people, it's the motion of the ocean! Come on! What's with the trend of writing about men that technically should be hurting you with the monster they yield! But in all honesty, it didn't really affect the sexiness of the whole thing. Just sayin'... they don't have to be hung like... (clears throat)

Moving on!

Though the novel was focused on Valerius and Rain, many characters were introduced. In fact, our little Pure One queen, Sophia, even tells some of the present events in her own first person voice. She is an endearing teenager on the cusp of womanhood, who holds responsibilities of her own that in her teenage mind, are still just a nuisance.
