The mix of history and archaeology is heightened by the tension between the characters. Renee’s strength and intellect were impossible to miss. She made a fantastic heroine. Damon’s guilt and self-doubt vie with his larger than life personality to create a hero that really steals the show. I couldn’t help but fall in love with him as we got to know him better and better. Together, these two really took this novel to a new level.
Cooper has mixed one of a kind characters with a well-researched, exciting plot to create a novel that readers will love. It was a quick fun read that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
It really is amazing the difference in reading experience one has when the book doesn’t have any formatting issues. I previously reviewed this book after being given an ARC through a third party. That ARC was a mess through no fault of the author and/or publishing company. Sadly due to that, the review I gave was poor and not in favor of the author. After rereading an ARC sent to me directly by the author, I am hereby amending my review and rating given.
I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to review another ARC of this book and see that the book definitely lived up to its potential. Nothing interfered with my ability to read the story and have it shine like it should. Ms. Cooper’s writing flows wonderfully as she brings her story to life with her intriguing and interesting characters and original storyline. You are hooked from the get-go!
An ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review of which this is both honest and completely voluntary.
***Due to the experience I had with the original ARC received by a third party, I would like to politely request of anyone giving out ARC’s on behalf of authors and/or their publishing company, please verify prior to sending out the ARC that the ARC is decent with no major formatting issues as this hugely reflects on the author and their publishing company, and is totally unfair and unwarranted. A simple check that the ARC did not reformat in some weird way through your ARC program saves a lot of heartache, hassle and frustration on everyone’s end. Reviewers don’t mind typos and whatnot as they are ARC’s and normally don’t take away from a reading experience. Unfortunately, the company I received my ARC from had serious formatting issues that affected the book as a whole in a very detrimental way.
I really enjoyed this paranormal story which started nice and slow but soon developed into an action packed ending. Renee was an independent woman and determined to not cave in to the attraction to Damon (although I admit to wanting to shake her sometimes!), and Damon was a rare beast as he was trying his utmost to do the right thing (a rare thing for a half-demon). I liked the danger elements added to the story which gave it a nice build up towards the end of the story. Well written and enjoyable.
When Renee gets a job to work with superstar archaeologist, Damon, she jumps at the chance. Sure the bossy guy might infuriate her, but when she starts lusting after him in her dreams, she’s fighting a losing battle. She just doesn’t know it yet. But when she unearths a beautiful crystal and decides to have it made into a pendant, her life takes a deadly twist.
Damon had been searching for that crystal as his time as a sexually-driven incubus is coming to a fast end. If he doesn’t get it in time, he’ll turn into a war-starving demon. Except now, the crystal has attached itself to Renee and won’t come loose.
Time is running out as the couple are bound together to face the dangers heading their way. Despite their differences, I adored how the couple come together, despite the adversity pulling them apart, and I knew from the start, this would be one of those legacy romances. I can’t recommend this book enough for all romance addicts who love to explore unique worlds, sexy alphas, and strong females who can’t help but be attracted to them. Can’t wait for book 2!!!!
This is the first book I've read by this author and I wasn't left disappointed.
I enjoyed the simmering tension between Damon and Renee. They have a slow burning romance which intensified as the story progressed.
The story/plot was creative and had lots of originality. The characters were fun yet entertaining and complemented each other really well. There was an element of suspense which made things much more exciting yet gripping.
I really enjoyed Claimed; the characters draw you in quickly and the story was intriguing.
