"Did you get a look at him? If asked, the table would've grown girl parts
and gone out back with him."

Love and danger . . .
For most of his life, Vampire-Demon Garrett Kayrs, nephew of the King of the Realm, has carried a heavy mantle of responsibility with ease and control. Fate declared him heir to the throne, Fortune marked him with the power of the mysterious circle of Seven, and Chance promised more surprises to come. Nothing deterred him from his path. Until the nightmares began—agonizing dreams of having a female, the female, his mate, on the back of his motorcycle—only to have her torn away from his protection. He feels the menace around her, the danger she’s in, and he can’t rest until he finds her . . .

Duty and desire . . .
Destiny Applegate bears the weight of her name with a respectful balance of fear and purpose. She has been given some direction, but not nearly enough to truly understand her duty, what she was born to do. Even as a child, she had a sense of him. The him, her mate. A dream moment or two with him that might have saved her—or possibly cursed her. So now, when he finds her, she has no choice but to jump on the back of his bike and do her best to hold on until she discovers her path—even if that means ending his.

My Two Cents

For years, Garrett dreamed of his fated mate. He was told and shown that his female would try to kill him. So why does his mind, heart and body yearn for the pretty little package that Destiny presents. She was the furthest thing from dangerous and all he wanted to do was bundle her up and protect her.

What happens when forces beyond their control force them to confront the truth?

Garrett Karys was a good man. Or male. He was strong and sure, and he loved his family. There was a gentleness about him that called to her, but if she were honest, it was the edge in him that made her knees weak. The hint of danger and the whisper of violence, both of which she knew he'd never use on her.

Each one of these books brings me closer and closer to the final showdown with the Kurjans, the Cyst, and my favorite immortal heroes. With Garrett's Destiny, I wasn't just on the precipice of the big fight, I was quickly caught up in the middle of it. It was just there and I. Was. Not. Prepared!!

I loved how every chapter seemed to take me in a new direction. One minute I'd be enjoying the growth of the bond growing between Garrett and Destiny, the next I was watching someone killing or dying. There was plenty of romance and action and the author created a fine balance. I still can't get over one of the deaths in this book and I'm excited to see how it factors in the book to come.

Destiny was so much more than expected and I loved how her character had so many layers. Garrett was obviously my favorite in this book (as all the heroes are in their books), but I definitely developed a soft spot for his lady.

There is a HUGE twist in this story and I'm both eager and terrified to read Hope's book, which is next. If you haven't started this series yet, you need to start already!!

  1. Wow! This one sounds like it packaged a punch with the twists and turns. That's great. I'm glad it's good because the cover is pretty with the pink and I wanted it to be good for that alone.

    1. LOL yup that pink is misleading. Kinda. The heroine is really sweet and innocent looking, so I guess the pink could be for her, but there was soooo much going on, making this such an incredible read.

  2. OMG.. I love the sound of this book and this series. I've read a few of Rebecca's Romantic Suspense novels, but never one of the Paranormal ones. I'll need to try these out.
    Great review!

    1. Thanks Maureen! XO
      This series has all the great things you'd find in her suspense books, but with tons of paranormal awesomeness :)

  3. This sounds amazing! 😍 Fantastic review! ❤️ I've never read this author. Are all the books in the series this good?


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment because I absolutely love getting and giving them!
