Reviewer Comments: Kalyss is content with what she’s done with her life after a brutal attack by her husband four years ago nearly left her dead. She has learned to defend herself, has helped others get away from abuse and opened a business. Everything points towards her having a quiet, peaceful life until two men enter her life bringing death and pain.

Kalyss will soon see her past and future collide. It will be up to her whether to heal or run away from the pain of the past. For not only is her future in danger, but that of all she loves and has loved, too.

Dreux has lived over nine hundred years as a statue. He has watched Kalyss die nine times, each time unable to save her. This time is different though. This time Kalyss has managed to return him to his human form and it is up to him to protect her from his brother, the man intent on killing her.

Betrayed by Jamie Leigh Hansen is the first book in a new series of good versus evil. There are dark and light angels at work in this book, both seeking redemption. There is pure love and forgiveness, as well as revenge, all vying for supremacy in Betrayed.

The action is intense. The emotions are raw. The use of flashbacks is excellent. They serve a purpose and are strategically placed to avoid confusion. The flashbacks are even explained as a piece of one of the characters.

I enjoyed this book and will be looking for the next installment from Ms. Hansen. Her writing style and plot lines are extremely engaging and I want more of them. There are many characters deserving of their own books and I’m sure that Ms. Hansen has the perfect stories line up.

    Congratulations on the good review. This is one part of the “getting published” process I’m worried about it. But it looks like you don’t have to. Again, congrats.
