As a member of the ancient and powerful Fomoirian race, Bastien has become one of these elite warriors, and in truth his job is everything to him; his whole life. There is nothing left for him but the small shred of peace that comes from killing monsters in the night and knowing that only good can come from their death. For all the rest of two hundred long years, he has been yearning for death to finally take him, as it should have the night that he lost everything.
Everything but the stubborn beat of his heart.
Now, after all this time, out of the numbness of his existence he has felt the first stirrings of something more… and the past and the present are about to collide in a way he never could have imagined. One seemingly chance meeting in a Glasgow alleyway will make him question everything he has ever known to be possible, and make him yearn to be brought back to life in a way he could never have imagined…

Liv just wanted to turn all of her bad luck into something good. So when the opportunity to travel presented itself, even under the strangest of circumstances, she decides to go for it. But the trip doesn’t turn out exactly as planned. And when she’s attacked in an alleyway she wonders why she even bothered coming, until the unbelievable happens and leaves her a little resistant to do as asked.
“God, she wanted to crawl onto his lap and kiss him… Holy crap! Where did that come from?”
Bastien lost his mate, and he should have followed, but he didn’t and he’s been trying to ever since. Becoming a warrior and fighting the bad Sidhe was something he did with reckless abandon, but instead of it getting him to where he wanted to be it only gave him an upstanding reputation at being one of the best.
“Once a Fomori male finds his mate, his body is hers and hers alone, responding only for her, needing her to sate his needs.”
When he meets Liv he’s drawn to her and cannot understand why. He shouldn’t be able to feel the way he does. It goes against not only his nature but everything he is.
“Every time he so much as though about touching her fire burned in his veins and his cock shot rock hard, and it was all scaring the shit out of him.”
It’s filled with wonderful characters like Carman, a meddling witch with good intentions…well most of the time. Then there’s Erath, a vampire who helps Liv out in such a fun way. I hope book two is about him. And I can’t forget about her best friend Jess. Now they have some interesting times together.
“And here comes the mayhem…”
I enjoyed this book very much. The only thing that kept me from loving it is the repetitiveness and poor consistency. For example, you cannot have a girl put on a dress and then have her jeans unbuttoned. I had to reread that little part because I was positive I’d read it correctly…and I did. But the overall storyline was completely captivating and I had a difficult time putting it down.
My Favorite Moment: I absolutely loved how Erath kept butting in where he shouldn’t have. First he helps Liv and then later he gives Bastien just the shove he needs to act, but my favorite is definitely how he helps Liv. Now that was fun!
