Goodreads Blurb: Centuries ago, Meryn was thought to be utterly lost--all traces of his soul given up to the ravening goblin horde. But with the curse that enslaved him now broken, he must once again learn to walk in the realm of men.
Nurse Nadine Gilbert likes working the night shift to avoid her disturbing dreams, but her mysterious new patient looks hauntingly familiar. Meryn knows he doesn't deserve a second chance, but Nadine brings out his long-buried human side. Telling her the truth about his violent past could destroy their fragile trust. Could she ever believe in the love of a Goblin Warrior?

My Review: This is my first time reading anything by Shona Husk, as well as anything goblin related and I really enjoy it. I now have a new outlook at the goblin race as well as a new appreciation, both something I never thought to happen. I started late in the series, but was fine with keeping up and following all that was happening from start to finish. That being said, this story can be read as a stand-alone without the reader being lost (awesome). I found the story to be very original and definitely one that many paranormal romance readers will enjoy!

Nadine is a wonderful woman that many of us can look up to for her strength, independence, smarts and beauty. She’s had a very traumatizing event happen to her at the age of 5, an event that she still cannot fully remember. All she knows is she misses her family dearly and craves to be loved.

Meryn has also been through great loss and suffers deep in his heart and soul from it. He was stuck for thousands of years in the Shadowlands, then suddenly taken out and brought into a realm that is very strange to him. Finding it safe, absorbing the surroundings, learning the language and making friends are some things he does fairly quickly. One thing that was done without his notice, permission or desire is his heart was taken by a modern beauty that shows him kindness and makes him want to be a better man.

Nadine and Meryn may have come from two different times, but they are meant for one another, a perfect balance that makes the other complete. I plan to read more into the Shadowlands series and hope the other adventures Shona Husk has created are as captivating as For the Love of a Goblin Warrior :)
