About the Author
Lynn Rush holds a psychology degree from Southwest Minnesota State University and a master's degree in Mental Health Therapy from the University of Iowa. Her experience as a former Addictions Therapist and competitive athlete lends to stories about complex heroines and the men who dare to love them.
Growing up in the land of 10,000 lakes and cold, snowy winters, Lynn has been known to weave a little of that cool Minnesota climate into her stories, but these days, she much prefers desert living. She resides in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband, and when she's not busy writing her next trilogy, she can be found pounding the pavement, training for her next endurance event.

Lucifer's minions are on the prowl to dominate anything good in this world. The Guardians are ever vigilant to protect the innocent and tip the balance in favor of the Light. 'Awaited' is the struggle of one Guardian to protect and redeem what is most lovely to him personally and what could be a potentially powerful weapon in the hands of either side.
Ms. Rush has taken a minor character from her first novel in this series and given him a starring role in a beautiful story that is both sensitive and thrilling. If you like to cheer for the good guys, enjoy a past paced thrill ride and a tender love story, rolled into a quick pleasure read, Awaited won't disappoint you in any sense.
Russell and Durk begin their journey, only to get immediately side tracked by an airplane crash and then, by saving a red-headed beauty who has haunted Russell's dreams. She heals quicker than she's supposed to, but is mute without cause. It's a baffling case, one Russell needs to solve if only for his peace of mind. Because, he's sure, Annabelle is destined to be his.
When they arrived at their appointed destination, it's to find the small town overrun with demons. How can they succeed or even survive their mission? How can Russell claim what he needs... Annabelle as his mate... if only death waits for the centuries old Guardian?
Awaited, Book Two, The Wasteland Series by Lynn Rush is a rockin read from the very first page. In Wasteland, we met Russell who was powerful, but needy and ever so slightly lost, a little fractured. It's his mission to protect Beka until her King could be found, but who knew a half-demon/half-human would become that King? David and Beka are the first consorts in a millennia, and now, it's supposed to be Russell's turn. He lost to the dreams of the red-headed woman and yet, he has no idea who or where she is.. until the fateful airplane crash. After saving the young woman's life, Russell and Durk are plagued by demons. No matter how many are destroyed, more take their place. Russell feels he hasn't a chance. And there's an ancient evil waiting to put it's own plan into play. But, who will be sacrificed? Are the Guardians strong enough to withstand the loss?
Awaited is an excellent follow up to Wasteland, and I rarely say this, it's as good if not better than the first book. Amazing. Thought provoking. Wonderfully told. It was easily read in one sitting. As I sat reading into the wee hours of the morning, I kept checking the pages, not because I wondered how much longer the book was, but I didn't want to turn that last page, the one where the story had to be over. The Wasteland series has become like an old friend, and I don't want to see them leave. Lynn Rush tells a compelling story, one that grabs the reader's attention in the first few pages, and doesn't let it go. I'm already anxious for the third book in the series. Crescent Moon Press has been blessed with talented cover artists, and Awaited is no exception. And what I like the most is the covers reflect the story to come, and we all know, that is a rare commodity in the publishing world. Crescent Moon Press is making a name for itself in the ebook publishing community by signing talented authors, and Lynn Rush is no exception. If you like battles between the ancient evil of the Dark and the goodness contained within the Light, this is an excellent addition to your library. Paranormal romance lovers, changed reality lovers, even urban fantasy lovers will want to give this series a try, so good, it is a must read. I would recommend reading Wasteland first, but if you can't wait, Awaited can be read alone, more than enough background information is given for the reader to be drawn in. But then you'd miss the wonderful tale of David and Beka's story, and you wouldn't want to do that, now would you? Five out of five fairy kisses for this reader.
I have enjoyed getting to know the characters of this series. "Awaited" picks up the story started in "Wasteland" and covers different guardians we have been introduced to. "Wasteland" introduces the guardians and guardian angels and tells the story of the King and Queen of the guardians, who are the guardian angels. "Awaited" tells the story of Russell, who we meet in "Wasteland." Russell finds his destiny and mate in this story.
The story was kept me guessing, first about if the woman they found was who they were sent to find and then if she was evil or not. I eagerly devoured this book in one sitting. I strongly recommend this series for anyone who enjoys reading paranormal romance or who enjoyed "The Mortal Instruments" series.
I give both these books 4 out of 5 clouds. A good read!
Russell, protector of Beka, Queen of the Guardians on Earth, is selected by Jessica, the Merus of Light, to find a female guardian, born on Earth during the last two centuries. Accompanied by Durk, Russell sets out to discover who she might be, when they are interrupted by an airplane accident.
A beautiful red-head distracts Russell. She is the woman who haunts his dreams--the one who is destined to be his--forever. Annabelle heals faster than the others, but is mute, a problem he is determined to cure.
Demons greet the duo after Annabelle is healed and no matter how many they kill, more appear to take their place. An ancient evil stalks the Guardians, vowing to silence them forever. Only one thing can save them.
A voice--now silent--yet waiting to be heard.
What a great read. Lynn Rush has done it again. Awaited can stand on its own. It is well-written, fast-paced, and rocks at capturing and keeping your attention. Awaited is absolutely perfect for an afternoon sta-cation.
