The first paragraph of the description is great and it made me want to read this book immediately. I put it off for a long time because I haven't actually read the first two books. I finally gave in and was able to follow the story well enough. But I think I probably did miss out some. The story here does stand on its own, but the events of the previous books are referenced and all of the characters are only vaguely described. I assume fuller descriptions were previously given and what was here was only meant as a reminder. That detracted from my enjoyment a little, but no one to blame on the one but myself.
Pete was a fun character. I appreciated her straight shooting, no nonsense attitude. Dominic was just your average PNR vampire alpha mate. (Though he wasn't actually THE alpha vamp here. Aaron was.) There wasn't much about him that stood out for me. He was completely made up for in the character of Duncan though. Duncan was the light of this book. I adored him. I don't know what species he was supposed to be, but I still wanted to hug him to death.
Everything in the book moves quickly, too quickly, unbelievably quick. Pete gains the trust and admiration of everyone she meets immediately. She does one job for a company and so impresses them that they purposefully overpay her and offer her a stellar full-time job. Dominic knows she is his mate within seconds of scenting her. One moment he and Pete are having their 2nd somewhat civil conversation, the next they're lip locked and racing for the bedroom. One paragraph he's apologising for the pain caused when he breaks her hymn, the next she is bent over a chair screaming "f--- me harder"...and within a week they've moved on to what some would call kinky fetish play. She has to confront her mother, stepfather (essentially) and seven brothers. Then dispatches all nine of them in about two pages, despite never previously fighting with her abilities.
It was very apparent early on, from the tone and everyone's hearts and flowers acceptance of Pete that this was not going to be a book in which anything bad was allowed to happen to the heroine. That's just what it proved to be, a litany of happy outcomes. Kind of takes some of the enjoyable tension away when you know the outcome from the beginning. But if you're the type that really likes a lot of mushy affirmations and a predictable HEA this is the book for you. (I know that sounds snarky, but I was being serious.)
Lastly and on a side note, I would just like to point out for the record, and I know I'm probably being pedantic by mention it, but the cover has NOTHING to do with the book. Not once does Pete or anyone else carry a sword and while the dogs are cute, her mate is a vampire not a werewolf. I'm just sayin'.
Piccadilly, better known as Pete, is in trouble. She has to fix the computer problems she caused and tell them how she did it. She meets Duncan who works for Aaron and agrees to help him purchase computers and set them up and also after this agrees to fix the security system for Aaron.
When Dominic finally meets "Pete" he can't believe he is a she and that she is his mate and wants absolutely nothing to do with her. Pete is also hiding from her family who wants to do unthinkable things to her. Can Dominic save her from them and will he take her as his mate? Another awesome book by Kathi S Barton.
What I love about these books are the women. The heroines in a Barton novel are no wilting flower... quite the opposite. In fact, I would say the women are the souls of the books. Their resemblances make up Barton's female prototype; strong powerful warriors with amazing magical powers.
Dominic and Picadilly's book a.k.a. Pete is lovely... And the ending is quite satisfying as the fate of Sherman is finally revealed in this book.
If you are fans of G.A. Aiken's Dragon Series and Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark, I believe you will enjoy this series. And now it's onto book #4 for me....
Dominic Marshall has recently joined Aaron's kiss, and has no intentions of ever finding a woman to hold him down. But when he meets Pete and smells her cinnamon and nutmeg scent he knows he's found a mate and lets her know he has no intentions of letting her tie him down.
But when trouble comes their way these two can't deny the passion that flares whenever they're in the same room together.
Great book and addition to the series. I love getting to read books that don't have the main characters falling in love when their eyes meet. These two fight all they way to the end and even after bonding!
Dominic is a vampire living in the McManus household.
When Pete comes out to install a complete system in the house, she meets Dominic, and sparks beging to fly. Will these men ever learn that women can be strong. That they don't need to be wrapped in cotton and placed on a shelf?
Of course Dominic makes all the standard mistakes, like ordering her around, and thinking that she will meekly do as he says.
We all know how that works.
Meanwhile Sara gives birth to her twins with Pete's help, and her family finds out where she is.
What exactly is Pete, ( they know she's not fully human), and how do they deal with her family?
Come along on this interesting journey.
