The Night Sender Christina Tsirkas Paranormal Romance New Adult CT Creative Press, LLC December 16, 2020 299
Who are the night senders? Where do they come from? Why are they so shrouded in secrecy?
These are the questions Rose Woodburn desperately wants answered.
At midnight on her 18th birthday, Rose, like all ladies of the court, receives a visit from one of the night senders. It is a coming of age rite she has been warned to fear, but Rose, always defiant, is not scared. She’s fascinated by these creatures.
When the visit awakens a part of her she never knew existed, Rose begs her night sender, Roosha, to return. But Roosha, condemned to a life of servitude, is bound by sacred law never to see her again.
Undeterred, Rose embarks on a mission to uncover the secrets surrounding these mystical creatures and their true purpose—a mission that will reveal far more than she bargained for and forge an unlikely alliance. But can it be trusted?
Obsessed with discovering the truth, Rose finds herself on a harrowing path of self-discovery and drawn into an affair so forbidden, its punishment is a fate far worse than death.
