The dream is coming true in this, Mikalo's Fate, the third installment in Syndra K. Shaw's story of Ronan and Mikalo.
After escaping the memory of her failed first marriage and allowing herself to love again, Ronan is finally walking down the aisle with Mikalo Delis, her Greek god in grey wool. But once in Greece, Ronan discovers that not all is as it appears to be with the Delis clan, their judgement and mistrust of her surrounding her every move. Then disaster strikes, an event so shocking it rips Mikalo's family apart, Ronan's dream quickly dying.
Her life with her beloved hanging in the balance, Ronan learns the only thing standing between her and "I do" is a surprise visit from a love lost long ago. But will it be enough? Or will she return to the States alone, her heart once again breaking as yet another love dies?
Ronan is finally at a place in her life where everything seems to be coming together – her career, her home and her beloved Mikalo. He asked her to marry him (in the most romantic of ways!) and now they are to journey to Greece together to introduce her to his beloved Nona and the rest of the Delis family.
“It had been weeks since he had kneeled before me in the kitchen. Weeks since he had slipped the ring on my finger and, his eyes wet with tears, asked me to be his. To love him and spend the rest of my days with him. Weeks since, my heart full and happy, I had been unable to speak. Unable to utter that simple syllable. Unable to find that "yes" in my throat, my voice. And so I had nodded. And that nod had become my answer. With that my Mikalo, my Greek god in grey wool, had become mine.”
"I want you to know me like no one else could. Or will. I want there to be nothing to hide and you hide nothing from me. With you, I want to be free, without the shame or the embarrassment or the guilt. To discover my true heart and to trust and then, I think, to be even more than we were before my heart was yours." He looked at me, his eyes glistening with quiet tears. "This is what I mean when I say I am yours. Forever, my Grace, I am truly yours."
Be happy and be loved.
