A sensitive wolf shifter and a vicious vampire challenge history, greed, and the very fabric of their beings in order to stay together until forever comes.
Plagued by pain and weakness all his life, Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter who can’t shift. Hoping to find an honorable death by joining his packmates in a vampire attack, Ethan instead learns two things: Draining his blood releases his pain and his wolf, and he has a true mate: a vampire named Miguel.
More than four centuries old, strong, powerful, and vicious, Miguel Rodriguez walks through life as a shadow, without happiness or affection. When a young shifter tells Miguel they’re true mates, destined to be together, Miguel sends him away. But Ethan is persistent, and being together comes so naturally that Miguel can’t resist for long. The challenge is keeping themselves alive so they can stay by each other’s side until forever comes.
5 Stars! Sweet, sexy, shifter/vampire romance! Another lovely, feel good read by this talented author.
I’m a fan of the crossover romance, when paranormal species find love outside of their own kind. It makes for interesting reading to see how they overcome the obstacles they face and such was the case for Ethan the young shifter, and Miguel the 400 year old vampire.
Ethan was so naive, which made him utterly adorable and added to his charm. I loved how Miguel connected with him and his protective nature wrapped itself around the young shifter. Miguel was so tender with Ethan, talked so sweetly to him, treated him with the utmost care, it was so unlike the way he was initially depicted. Once they realized they were true mates they never questioned their fate and embraced it, well Miguel did a little, but it didn’t last long…he wanted Ethan so much. While they knew it wasn’t going to be easy to bring their two worlds together, they go through some trials and tribulations, but they never once felt anything was insurmountable and would keep them from each other.
This was a well-rounded read with two likable main characters, some fun secondary characters, a little action, an interesting story line about overcoming differences, and plenty of sweet, hot lovin’! All of which this author writes so well, has made me a fan, and keeps me coming back!
About the audiobook…
This was my second listen by Charlie David and it was just as good as the first. He inserts just the right amount of emotion into his voice when necessary and is able to create a distinctive voice for each of the characters with his smooth soothing tone!
Cardeno C. and Charlie David are a terrific author/narrator match and I’m hoping they continue to work together in the future. It’s meant to be!
