Eden Discovered was inspired by Emily Dickinson’s poem “The Goal.”
Animal lover Jaelene Upton doesn’t expect to lose sight of her sister when she follows her through a bizarre travel portal, but that’s exactly what happens when she’s distracted by a cute baby porcupine. Lost, she asks for directions, only to be nearly assaulted by one naked man before being saved by another. Her best guess is she’s landed among a native tribe in the middle of a jungle….but odd reflections and energy sources have her questioning even that assumption.
Theron misses his home in Loraleaf and the brothers of his heart Konala and Rekah. His new home, a lonely cave, is his escape from seeing the woman he loves happily bonded to Loraleaf’s leaders. When he saves Jaelene from lawbreakers, he finds himself drawn to her intoxicating curiosity and despite his best efforts, he falls for her. But no matter what his heart wants, he can’t offer her anything but safety and a reunion with her sister. Unless…
If Theron can interest Konala in Jaelene as well, then he would only have two more obstacles to conquer, Rekah and Jaelene herself. But Rekah, hurt by Theron’s betrayal, wants nothing to do with Jaelene and when she discovers Theron’s past love, she refuses to be his consolation price. As the battle with the lawbreakers grows near, Theron realizes this time he may well lose more than his heart.
Excerpt from Eden Discovered:
Jaelene wasn’t chosen, which meant she might not even think his world was possible. “Don’t you believe there can be life on other planets?”
She looked down in thought. When her deep blue gaze returned to his, Theron almost forgot what they were discussing. Her eyes reminded him of the Latzeran Sea, its dark blue waters so beautiful that people were known to ignore the dangers of its depths and drown.
“I never really thought about it.” She shrugged one shoulder. “It would be a bit egotistical to think Earth had the only living beings, so I guess I can accept that somewhere out there in another galaxy, there is life.”
She held up her index finger. “But I don’t accept that there is a portal that I can step through and suddenly be on another planet.” She shook her head, her long black hair swishing over her shoulder. “Nope. I know I’m still on Earth. Heck, it was a porcupine that got me lost in the first place. I doubt there are porcupines on other planets.” Jaelene crossed her arms as if she’d solved the most important problem in the universe.
There was something endearing about her complete confidence. Theron liked it. “That was a welchet.”
He grinned. “It’s a welchet. It looks like a porcupine as you noticed, but it has two tusks that grow down from its bottom jaw for digging up grubs and it has six feet.”
She looked at him a moment then shook her head. “Nice try. What I saw was a porcupine. Maybe you just call it something different.”
Theron studied her. What would she think when she saw her sister’s pet welchet? What would she think of Loraleaf? A stab of longing sliced through his heart at the thought of her seeing his home. He missed it more than he’d thought possible, but just imagining going back caused another pain altogether.
