Rone is a Wulven Kindred—feared and shunned even by others of the Kindred race. For the Wulven carry a Beast inside them that will kill anyone unlucky enough to be near when it emerges. Only a female who has tamed a male Wulven’s Beast is immune from this danger. Rone once had such a mate—before she was snatched away.
For months he’s been searching for his missing bride but when he finally locates Kate, he finds that she has forgotten him completely. Not only that, but his mere presence engenders a panic response in the woman who once loved him. Their bond has been broken and Kate doesn’t know him. Worse, his Beast no longer acknowledges her as his mated female. Rone doesn’t blame Kate for thinking he is dangerous—he is and always will be unless she can tame his Beast.
But in order to tame the Beast, Kate must take a terrible risk…one that may end in her death. Will she be able to control her fear and face the danger that lives inside her mate or will Rone remain forever…Forgotten?
Now we fast forward six months to find that not only has Kate lost all her memories of Rone but she has been poisoned with something that causes her to feel tremendous bone chilling fear when Rone is near her. Rone’s hunger for his Mate is tearing him apart but seeing her crippled by panic attacks when near him brings this strong male to his knees. Their bond is broken but perhaps a journey to somewhere that specialises in couple’s therapy might help? Although if they thought it would be easy, then they are in for a beastly surprise!
I love the Brides of Kindred books with their sexy romances and wildly twisting stories. Every book is an adventure and this one is no exception. Ms Anderson picks up where the previous book, Targeted, left off as Kate had her memory tampered with and was transported away. I was very keen to learn more about the Wulven Kindred as they are a new offshoot with their own Beast within and, as it turns out quite unique qualities as well! Ms Anderson cleverly gives flashes of just what the vile Two is up to, but in this book he is not the only danger the couple will face.
Yes, there's clearly a lot more to come and I for one can't wait to read Switched when it's published. For now though, this erotic story was such fun to read. Rone is so gentle with Kate as he woos her all over again. Kate struggles with her past but she's a feisty heroine and capable of anything she sets her mind to. It's Sci-Fi with unusual technology but it's light and entertaining. I'm always astounded by how diverse the stories are, just so creative. If new to this series, start with Claimed which was free the last time I looked and enjoy the sexy ride this talented author always takes her readers on.
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
