Personal tragedy drove Callum McRae to join the Order of Saint Casimir fifteen years ago; now he’s in charge of a hold he hasn’t lived in for years. Supplies are scarce, he has no knack for dealing with people, and the Gols are at the gates. To make matters worse, he’s also battling an attraction so powerful and forbidden that it imperils his very soul…
Canny. Cheerful. Charming.
Joss Bristow seems bright and cheerful, but she’s hiding a well of sorrow that fuels her music. She’s also prone to leaping before she looks, exactly how she ends up besieged at Burnt Amber. Though she wanted to get to know Callum better, she never imagined that falling for him could cost her life.
He’s the dark of night, and she’s the sun that shines just for him. Two wounded souls have never needed each other more, but between his holy vows and the devastation of war, the odds are stacked against them…
“Joss is absolutely everything that Callum needs, he locked his heart away after a tragedy and has been in a kind of frozen stasis ever since but Joss’s sunshine personality burns through that ice and lets her through to the warm and loving man hidden deep inside.” Heather @ Feeling Fictional
“The War Priest made for interesting pandemic reading as Joss ponders her role as an entertainer vs. those fighting on the front lines. At the same time Callum struggles with his commitment to the Order vs. his obligation to his people and his desire to be with Joss. I think both of their journeys become even more relatable than the author originally intended in the current context.” Gretl @ Goldilox and the Three Weres
“Who does the grumbly, grouchy bear shifter get paired up with? The cheeriest shifter EVER. Callum’s a brooding thundercloud and Joss is his ray of sunshine and it’s PERFECT.” Kelly @ Goodreads
