Blog Tour: To Have and to Harm (Remedy #2) by Debra Doxer

She kept everyone from harm, except herself…

Raielle’s life was shrouded in secrets. Her power was a secret and so was her past. When she came to Fort Upton, everything changed. She discovered her family, and she found the boy who would own her heart forever. But it couldn’t last. Knowing so little about her power nearly destroyed her. She had to leave and break both their hearts.

Now she’s back in California, and she doesn’t have to hide who she is anymore. But there is no relief in that because she’s drowning in regret. She knew it would take a miracle or a sin to save her, and there was no miracle. Her survival came at too high a price. She found her father, but she can’t go back to Lucas until she finds redemption.

She saved him. Then she left him…

She came out of nowhere and changed him forever, then she disappeared and left him reeling. Her whole life, she never had anyone who really loved her. Until him. Did she think he wouldn’t come for her? Did she believe she wasn’t worth it?

Lucas leaves everything behind to follow Raielle. When he finds her, she’s a pale shadow of the girl he remembers. Her power is betraying her and so are the people around her, but one thing hasn’t changed. She selflessly wants to save the world, and he just wants to save her.

With more secrets to uncover and dark truths to face, Raielle and Lucas must make sacrifices for each other. But in the end, will those sacrifices bring them closer together or tear them apart? When he’s forced to make the ultimate sacrifice, will she turn her back on everything she believes in to save him again?

~ This book is intended for mature readers due to sexual situations and strong language.~

I fell in love with this couple in  
To Keep You from Harm

See review  HERE

I was intrigued and captivated by this tale of a Raielle who had a gift that most people would dream to have. To be able heal those that you love or even anybody that you would want to help. But for every single gift there is some sort of responsibility or consequence involved. 
Raielle knew nothing about this power she held literally in the palms of her hands and only knew fear. 
She was afraid to use it and at the same time afraid to keep it bottled up inside her. Then comes Lucas ..oh he stole my heart in book 1. He was loyal and protective and just had that sweet but sexy attitude that I love. If you read the first book you know it has a MAJOR cliffhanger!! 
Yea that was me. I was like NOOOO please Lucas go after her!!
Yea baby ..he did.  But then.......
Small (without details ) SPOILERS AHEAD
Well it wasn't smooth sailing after that. Lucas was hurting and alone and didn't know if he'd ever find Raielle and well he had a little blip that knocked him off the perfect alpha shelf and actually broke my heart. But he came through in the end and I love him even more knowing he's not perfect but REAL and we all know real men make mistakes. Real men also own up to them and don't lie or hide them and Lucas came right out and was honest with Ray about what happened and why.
Raielle never once held anything against him. She knew him loving her meant he was in for a world of shock, pain and trying times. But most of all they both knew that apart they were so much less than together. 
When they were together everything was so much easier to deal with and the way they loved each other just really took my breath away. 
Evil characters were all over this book and there were so many obstacles that at times I screamed. 
That's the only reason I am not able to give this really exceptional book 5 stars. There was just too many things that I felt detracted from the love story. But I do know that there is a large audience for ANGST and well they were fed till bursting in this baby.

I can give it a full solid 4 stars for the sweetest love story and amazing refreshing take on fantasy/paranormal romance that I've seen in a while. I look forward to more from this amazing author and will be keeping my eye on her.
