Illuminated by Christine Pope

If Sarah Wright didn’t know better, she could swear she’s being watched. But that’s impossible. After a mysterious fever turned everyone else in Cloudcroft, New Mexico, to ash, she has never been more alone.

As winter sets in, all she can do is focus on gathering enough firewood to survive…or enough courage to find out if she’s truly the last woman on earth. She never thought the last man on earth would knock on her door.

Given the chance to save one life from the Djinn’s deadly plan to claim Earth as their own, Kamal al-Sayid has been observing his choice — Sarah. He never expected her desperate loneliness to ensnare his heart, or her warm lips to tempt his desire. But disclosing too soon the brutal truth of what his people did to hers is not the way to win her trust.

He forgot that snowdrifts aren’t the only things that pose a danger on the mountain. And the only way to save her is reveal the extent of his magic…and trust that love will light her way to the safety of his arms.

“An entertaining and heartwarming holiday read”—Amazon reviewer
