Without darkness, there can be no light.

Dean has always been Liv's white knight. Not once has he retreated from battle. Not once has he failed to keep his wife safe. Not once has he broken his promise to slay monsters for her.

Then Dean encounters a monster he can’t destroy. A monster he can’t even face. And for the first time ever, there is nothing he can do to protect the woman who owns his heart.

The love story of Liv and Dean West that started with AROUSE and continued in ALLURE, AWAKEN, and ADORE now comes to a breathtaking conclusion as the professor and his beauty fight the battle of their lives.

Review always

❝Together we’ll always be a white knight and his beauty who battled monsters and won.❞

Nina Lane, you have me under your spell. You know the phrase, if they build it, they will come… well, if you write it, I will read it. I have loved Liv and Dean from the start. (I’ve read some of the books in the series more than once.) I’ve loved them all. But, ‘Always’ is my favorite.

❝A handsome professor who showed a damsel in distress what it means to love and to be loved. A student who learned how to trust one man alone with her body and soul. A barista who saved the freshest cookies for a certain customer who always wore a tailored suit and perfectly knotted tie. A dorky medievalist who championed obscure foreign films. A girl who learned she already had everything she needed to become a woman. A man who protected her with the whole of his heart and kept her safe through it all.❞

That is a perfect summary of this series. True, all-encompassing love. Love so powerful, that not even the highest mountain is impossible to climb. It’s when you are broken and tired and the only thing you want is to give up, you look across the room to your strength, your heart, your source of life and keep going. Liv and Dean’s passion is captivating, the romance is addictive.

❝Wrapped in Dean’s arms, intoxicated by his kisses, I’m just Liv again, the starry-eyed girl who melts at his touch, and he’s the captivating man who loves me with a wild tenderness that is more powerful and eternal than time itself.❞

In ‘Always’, Liv and Dean face the battle no one wants to face. One that could change the course of their future, the story of their history. When Liv is at her lowest and the Professor is unable to fix, slay, or bring the monster to heel, their world suddenly lays on shaky ground. Dean is at a loss, locking himself in his tower leaving Liv without her Knight. But to the rescue is the Knight’s brother, Archer. Knowing exactly what Dean needs to push forward, and being the solid ground for him, allowed Dean to realize it’s okay to not always be the hero. Sometimes, monsters are too big.

Liv’s battle was far from easy and seeing Dean in pain adds guilt to her daily struggle. She can’t help her herself, let alone her husband.

❝An unexpected surge of guilt hits me, filling my chest. I did this to him. I’m the one causing him this torture, this pain. ❞

We are granted with two Epilogues. Gratefully, since this is the last book of the series. They were fantastic and since there has to be an ending, they were the perfect way to end the West’s story!

Lane Always


Nina Lane has given us a passionate love story which rivals the classics. Dean and Olivia’s story is real. The challenges they have faced along the way are challenges married couples face daily. And they have faced them head on — together.

❝We were destined to create a life together, one in which promises are kept, blessings are counted and our marriage is the safe harbor to which we always return.❞

Liv and Dean, as well as their friends and family, have become more than just characters in a book. To me, they have become part of my landscape. Theirs is a story I would wish would never end.

Top Fave of the Year!
