From the Author
You know who I am. The veana who refuses to be contained, refuses to be ruled, refuses to be loved. The veana who has from an early age been different from her kind, a cast off -- and perhaps reveled in it a little too much. I was taken in, true. It was a better fate than most of my mutore brethren received. Most were thrown out like trash or killed before they could take another breath. But in that saving grace that was my adoption, I grew to see the ugly truth in others.
It is a question I ask myself often: Would it have been better to go the way of my mutore brothers and sisters? A quick and shallow grave... Or was I saved for some reason? For some one?
He comes to mind, has since the day we met at the Romans', far too often and intensely. It is as though my body, my...beast, recognizes him. I have never been able to deny my beast when it scratches its desire on my unbeating heart.
But will he accept me when he knows the truth of who and what I am?
Will he help me, as only he can?
You're thinking I don't deserve someone like him after how I've behaved, aren't you? But understand this, I don't set out to hurt him. It's just with Gray...with whatever it is between us --fireworks, dynamite, admiration...I can't seem to let him walk out of my life.
Your selfish and Eternal Beast,

And what a story it was. Full of so much action, drama, humor and very romantic sizzling scenes. I have to say it was one of my favorites so far.
Reading about Dillon's past helped me understand why she's so closed off and untrusting of everyone. I can totally sympathize with her. What a horrible past. It's amazing she's been able to survive this long. It's no wonder that she's closed herself off to all emotions.
Gray is strong willed, fierce and fights for his beliefs and for those who cannot. Dillon has trouble understanding this first because no one has fought for her, she's had to protect herself. So why bother. But as she gets closer and closer to Gray, she learns that by helping others, she's also helping herself.
The one thing I really loved was that no matter what or how Dillon pushed Gray away, he kept coming back and pushing through her walls. Breaking stone by stone until he was able to show her that she could not only trust him but actually love him.
The whole background about the mutore, how they are different from Impures and Purebloods, and how they came about, and understanding how the Purebloods, Impures and mutores are somehow related was very well written and explained.
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the past characters, the Romans and their mates, and now the mutores bonding and working together for a common goal.
Amazingly written. I was riveted throughout the whole book. Hard to put down.
And what an amazing ending. Definitely makes you wish you had the next one already.Read more ›
Dillon and Gray have been the couple I have been waiting for. I was not sure it was ever going to happen though because Dillon is so stubborn! She has had a very difficult past though, and has been burned so many times that she has spent her life shutting down her emotions. She does not want to feel anything because if she doesn't then no one can hurt her. She also has the Order searching for her because of her status as a mutore, which is a pureblood vampire shape-shifter. They are considered the lowest form of life and are often killed after birth. Not exactly something that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside if you happen to be one.
Gray on the other hand does not want to tame his feelings. He is loyal, passionate and fights for what he believes in. He knows he can help Dillon deal with what she is going through, but she never lets him get close enough to try. He wants to help her so badly, but her constant rejection is turning him cold and he is not sure how much longer he can wait for her to trust him.
Watching these two struggle with trying to be strong on their own but be together was tough. They did not have many obstacles in their way except internal ones. Both of them did not know if they could truly trust the other and it was hard for them to work through that barrier. It took time, but they slowly started opening up to one another and towards the end they experienced some truly heart wrenching moments together.Read more ›
Luca and Phane! Oh man it seems Luca found the ideal peeps to sharpen his verbal taunts on! And the mutore takes them with ease.
And it's grate to see Nicholas with Kate, Alexander with Sara, and Lucian with Bronwyn - along with their little baby girl! And the way Lucian took to fatherhood. Awww moment!!
On page 152 - Dillion is such a ball-buster! So awesome to see her go toe-to-toe with a male. All the while Gray is enjoying the show! Dillion's character is one I can totally get into. Watching her put a male in his place I got savage pleasure out of reading that part.
The pages started to blur in my haste to read more, to see what happens next. Seems we had a different baddie, one we really did not meet in the previous. Many changes, better changes. Pasts learned. Questions answered but more answers posed.
So happy to finally see Dillion and Gray settled. We seen their sparks, their tensions in the previous books. So we really did not need so much follow up on the two characters. The chemistry and sex between the two were like dynamite!
There still that one deal with Gray and Sarah's mom. Her part with Cuen.. AND DAMN did Laura really have to end the book that way? Grrr! This author knows the best way to sink her hook into her readers to chomp and anticipate the next one.
