Description from the publisher:
One kiss was all it took.
Between work, family and her ex-boyfriend, Ashley Blakely is completely stressed out. She doesn’t have time to write in her fantasy diary or compete in the annual ‘fantasy wish’ competition her and her sisters have going. The only thing wants this Christmas is normalcy.
All hope of a normal Christmas… or life… fly out the window the moment she’s kissed by Kelan Grant. Now she’s swept up in a whirlwind of romance, seduction and danger. She wants no part of this new life. Yet, once she finds out that her sisters and her best friend are in jeopardy, she will do whatever it takes to keep them safe. Even allow herself to be kidnapped and handcuffed by a devil in disguise.
Dr. Kelan Grant always keeps his word. The moment he lays eyes on Ashley, he vows she will be his for eternity. He doesn’t care that his brother is mated to her sister and wants to keep their real heritage a secret from the Blakely family. Kelan will do whatever it takes to claim his bride.
Kidnapping her is the easy part. Winning her heart is going to take some strategic planning. But between the dark angels stalking him and Ashley’s constant need to break every item in his home, Kelan is having a hard time romancing the woman who he feels already belongs to him.
Will he get the eternity with Ashley he’s envisioned? Or will his enemies snatch her from his grasp and awaken the monster he tries to hide?
This is the second book in the Fantasy Diary series. It partially parallels the time-frame of Christmas Fantasy, and they do need to be read in order.
Dr. Kelan Grant is truly ruled by his beast. He tries, he will go days living on the blood of animals, only to have his beast take over and sadistically claim a human life in its exuberance. Then he scents her. She will tame his beast. For her, he and his beast will agree. For her, they will do anything… even kidnap her to convince her that she is theirs. Ashley Blakely, one of Alyssa’s sisters, doesn’t have time to deal with a new man while dealing with an ex who is now her boss, the Christmas season, and secret second job. She especially doesn’t have time to deal with a new man who is into sniffing her hair!
I love, love, love both Kelan and Ashley. Even while admitting her overwhelming attraction to him, Ashley fights the whole situation every step of the way. The insight given into the dark angels and their mission was inventive and frightening parallels most terrorist organizations believing they are saving the world.
I cannot wait to see where Siren Allen’s imagination will take us next!

“That was,” she shook her head, grinning. “That was unbelievable.”
“No, no, I didn’t do anything. You’re the unbelievable one. Damn, Kelan, where have you been all my life?”
“I’ve been looking for you,” he confessed. “All my life I’ve been searching for something to make me feel whole. I thought if I became a doctor and saved lives, the empty hole inside of me would close. It didn’t, it only got bigger. But with you, I feel complete.”
Fuck, what made him share that with her?
Ashley’s smile disappeared. He’d scared her away. He could tell from the vacant look in her eyes.
“I know what you mean,” she whispered.
Maybe he hadn’t scared her away.
She nodded. “Work is important to me. It’s all I do and I put a lot of time and energy into my job. A lot of people don’t appreciate the energy I put into it and sometimes I get so overwhelmed and frustrated that I feel like giving up. Tonight was one of those nights where I just wanted to throw the towel in and say I quit. Who needs a job they’re not happy with? Then I opened my eyes and there you were.”
Ashley laughed and wiped her eyes. “I wished for you.”
“You wished for me?”
“Sounds crazy don’t it? But I did. I wished for you. I was at the gas station, I saw a shooting star and I wished for a man to come into my life and make me feel something other than the loneliness I’ve been feeling for so long. I wished for you and you showed up. I don’t care if I only get to feel this way in my dreams. I’ll take what I can get because being here with you, you make me feel… I don’t know, happy. I haven’t felt happy in a long
