Vampire soldier Adare O’Cearbhaill’s default setting is cranky. Or irritated. Or down-right hostile. Still, as a Highlander of honor and duty, he stepped up to save an enhanced and special human female by mating her—with merely a bite and a brand. The last person he wants in his life is a fragile human, yet he can’t get her out of his mind as she regains her strength before taking off for parts unknown. And when he discovers she is in danger, nothing can stop him from hunting her down—whether she likes it or not.
There’s only one way to find out . . .
Photographer Grace Cooper has had it with vampires, demons, and the rest of an immortal world she was happier not knowing about. She also doesn’t believe she’s destined for some great battle because of an old birthmark. Forget the fact that her mate is the sexiest thing on two stubborn feet, or that her brand is fading along with her health. She’ll handle things on her own—until an old enemy reappears and she learns the only way to stay alive is to actually mate, wild sex and all, with that ripped and dangerous Adare—a powerful, captivating Highlander who demands nothing less than everything . . .

Thank goodness for Benny!
I did enjoy the story, but Grace is definitely a TSTL. Grace definitely annoyed me. Constantly putting everyone around her at risk. Adare was the typical warrior. He knew his job and did it. Well. Benny was the story savior for me. He loves everyone and brings lots of humor to most situations. I did enjoy the usual suspects dropping in. Definitely added to the story. I’m looking forward to Benny and Karma’s story. I just hope Karma remains a strong female character. 3.5 for Benny and the battles.
Please do yourself a favor don’t buy this book. It’s not worth it.
Adare and Grace's story is finally here! I admit I worried how these two were going to go since we knew from the beginning their story would be different.
I was hoping that the reason they didn't truly become a couple until years later would have a good transition. As strongly possessive as these men are in this series, I needed Adare to have a good reason for the wait. I think the author handled this perfectly.
We also find out what Grace's ability is and it's pretty cool. If I could have a super power, this one would come in handy when dealing with others. I won't say more than that so I don't spoil things.
There is so much I would love to talk about, but again..spoilers. Let me just say we learn more in this ongoing battle with the enemy, more about Hope, and I'm a little sad about a twist that happened. It just makes me very impatient to get the next book. I need to see this all work out!
