Luthor Cross is not sure whether he trusts this enigma named Gabrielle Cody. She stirs his libido and challenges his mind. Her secrets keep him guessing about who Gaby really is underneath her tough, streetwise exterior. However, her natural innocence draws him as no other woman ever has. Luthor’s attempts to protect Gaby from the evils of the world, as well as from Gaby herself, meet with resistance, leaving him frustrated and worried for her safety.
Gaby has work to do and she knows that an honest cop like Luthor will just get in her way. She resists his attempts to start a relationship even though Luthor gives her life more of a purpose than just slaying evil at God’s whim. Gaby finds herself in danger when a malevolent person starts murdering the prostitutes that are under her protection. It appears that the murderer has targeted Luthor, as well as Gaby and the prostitutes. Can Gaby discover the identity of the killer before anyone else dies? How will she keep Luthor safe when the murderer sets his sights on the cop? Ultimately, is it her life or her heart that Gaby is most in danger of losing?
SERVANT: THE ACCEPTANCE is book two in the SERVANT series by L. L. Foster. This addition to Gaby’s story is excellent in both plot and characterization. Foster’s innate talent shines brightly in this dark paranormal tale. I fell in love with both Gaby and Luthor in the first book, SERVANT: THE AWAKENING, and must say that my love affair with these two characters continues throughout this amazing second book. Luthor is a truly good, honest man with an open, giving heart. Gaby is a woman who faces the worst that humanity has to offer each day, yet still protects those less fortunate and weaker than herself. In a sense, Gaby is an avenging angel, but often thinks of herself as a monster. The plot of SERVANT: THE ACCEPTANCE will leave you guessing about the true identity of the killer until the very end. THE ACCEPTANCE can be read as a stand-alone book. However, I urge you to read the first book, THE AWAKENING, in order to fully understand the nuances of these complex characters. Do not miss SERVANT: THE ACCEPTANCE! This no holds barred book will keep you turning the pages long into the night. I had to see how everything turned out for Luthor and Gaby and could not put it down until I had read the last word!
