Series: Darkness Book #3
Author: Katie Reus
Blurb: Now that she has her freedom, she’s not giving it up.
Dragon shifter Keelin Petronilla spent centuries in forced hibernation dreaming of one thing: freedom. Now she’s living life on her terms—she’s ditched her clan for an unruly wolf pack, she tends bar for a half-demon, and she’s loving it…until a powerful supernatural being targets her. She intends to handle the mysterious attacks on her own…without the help of dragon Alpha Bran Devlin. Sure, he’s sexy in that hot, scowling possessive way, but Keelin wants to live her own life in her own way.
Now that he’s found his mate, he’s not letting her go.
Former black ops agent Bran Devlin is a born dragon Alpha and leader of a fierce clan. Getting mated was never part of his plan—until a feisty dragon princess gets under his skin in a big way. The hell of it is, she doesn’t want a mate; she just wants to have a good time. He plays along, but when a dark and powerful being marks her for death, he’s determined to stay by her side in spite of her protests. Now that he’s found his mate, he means to keep her safe no matter what the cost…even if he has to risk it all.
Thoughts: I am a huge fan of Katie Reus, though this is my first foray into her Darkness series. While it was still great, I have to say that it is not my favorite series of hers (though I am looking forward to more from Bo and Nyx! Talk about secondary characters that steal the scenes!) I love the idea of mates and not being able to deny the person your supposed to be with – although I love when they fight their hardest to try! It’s kind of cute that Keelin has no idea at first that Bran even sees her as his mate…until he comes after her and makes it absolutely clear. I also loved their different ‘mating’ habits – for instance, Bran’s is a visible almost ‘golden fire’ that coats the furniture, walls, etc. Very unique. Never a disappointment from Katie Reus!
I’m eagerly looking forward to Bo and Nyx’s story!
