Ethan Hale is a vampire with a mission. Together with his three brothers and a few other unmated members, he fights with The Vampire Coalition to protect humans from fallen vampires. His life is fairly simple. If he has a problem...he solves it. If it's an evil problem...he kills it. But his uncomplicated life is about to end when his mate unexpectedly calls him to her.
Brianna Cole is weak, her life force fading away. She thinks she is suffering from a rare form of leukemia. Little does she knows that her illness is much more complicated. She's dying because she has not united with her vampire mate and given him his soul that she has been guarding since birth.
Ethan finds Brianna and knows he needs to convince her to mate or watch her die. He's waited for her for five hundred years and he has no intention of letting her go, but she is not in any shape for the dominate, volatile mating ceremony with a vampire. He will have to win the race against time to strengthen Brianna and a battle with a stalking fallen to claim his mate. He is also at war with his mating instincts that make him burn to dominate and conquer her. But Ethan is determined, and the stubborn vampire will do whatever is necessary to possess his soul bonded mate...forever.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
J.S. Scott is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of erotic romance. She's an avid reader of all types of books and literature. Writing what she loves to read, J.S. Scott writes both contemporary erotic romance stories and paranormal romance erotics. They almost always feature an Alpha Male and have a happily ever after because she just can't seem to write them any other way!
I found a few(and I mean a few) brief moments of humor and the core idea was interesting. However in my opinion this novella suffered from way too many paranormal ideas.
The author's use of exclamation points was also distracting. I found that the romantic and sexual relationship between characters just wasn't believable(I could maybe see Ethan's feelings but never felt Brianna's were).
Even though Ms. Scott somehow made me curious about how the other vampires would find their mate, I didn't like it enough to want to buy the others.
I was glad this book was free and I encourage you (because it is free) to check it out.
So what did my best friends have to say about this book?
