Rory Hale had liked Callie Marks since he had met her at his brother’s wedding. Although he couldn’t feel desire for anyone except his true mate, he and Callie had a connection. They became cautious friends and he wished he could offer her more. Underneath his confident exterior, Rory had his own insecurities, but Callie seemed to think he was special.
Nathan’s Mate: Jewelry maker Sasha Taylor is from an old and aristocratic line of mages and expected to mate with a mage of the same background to secure a continuing pure line of little magic children. She would probably have complied with the old mage tradition had she not had one tiny problem with the plan. She had the mark of the vampire that she had hidden for years and was slotted to be a mate to one of the savage species of blood drinkers. Mage and vampires did not mix…so she kept the secret to herself and avoided a mating until she meets her mate, Nathan Hale…a vampire that saves her life. Nathan squashes every myth she has ever heard about vampires and she soon finds herself drawn to the very vampire she had fought so hard to avoid.
Liam’s Mate: Liam Hale is a vampire healer with secrets, secrets that he has kept hidden for hundreds of years from his brothers for their own protection. He’s resigned to his lot in life, to work only for the benefit of his people…until he meets mage healer Regan Taylor. Regan makes Liam want more, much more than a lonely vampire healer can ever possess.
Daric’s Mate: Prince Daric Carvillius is the twelve hundred year old Prince of the Vampire Healers, the most powerful being on earth, and very accustomed to getting his own way in every situation. When one of his healers, Liam, finds his mate after an entire millennium had passed without one healer mating, Daric is hopeful that the Carvillius Curse is finally broken; the results of a mistake he made a thousand years ago finally righted, allowing healers to find their mates. The only vampire healer he doesn’t want to see mated is himself, positive that the last thing he wants is a female he has to protect in addition to babysitting his unruly lot of vampire healers. But Daric has a destiny to fulfill, and his fate crashes into his life, literally, one snowy night in Colorado when he rescues a female human, Hannah Temple, from a blizzard.
I really wanted to like this series, but there is no plot, no character or world development, and the couples are instantly in love. I never felt the connection/love with any of the characters in this series.
Each book in the series we get a vampire showing up and claim his mate with a half hearted bad guy scene and a public erotica claiming ceremony. Except in Liam & Daric’s story they don’t have to claim their women public. ??? For those of you who enjoy the adult content it definitely is in there, but for those who look for a meaningful plot to support that adult content – not there.
I read the entire series and each book is the same just with different character names. I had bought it as the complete box set collection (saves $$) thinking I would really like the series since there where so many great reviews, but I was disappointed. The first book Ethan’s Mate is free for a limited time on Amazon or B&N.
To sum it up: short, no plot, erotica.
