This author never ceases to amaze me how she can create a story that touches you deeply in either the characters or the plot of a story.
Andrei and Sonia's is a sad tale that will turn to joy as they come together, but as some say, fate can be a b*t*along the way.
A witches curse a and the Vampire's search for a way to break it. Throw in his cure is doing the unthinkable to his heart, breaking it.
Great PNR Story with a HEA ending that makes up for that lump in your throat feeling throughout.
I voluntarily read and reviewed this book by its author.
Reviewer for Nook Books and More Blog
This story is told through the point of view of three very different people, but which fate ingeniously brought together for the most heart stopping romance today. The story begins with Korinna, a beautiful witch with an evil step-mother, (can totally relate) that places a curse upon her out of jealousy as well as a dash of spite. This is the backdrop of the story for Andrei Vladimir and the horrible fate he is facing. So the story goes that for Andrei's people, (vampires) they dream of their fated mates, and the closer their mate is to them, the clearer the dream of them is and that is when they go out to sweep her off her feet, but when Andrei falls prey to a manipulating witch he is cursed for forsaking the witch, and never allowed to return to his own realm with his people. Here is where Sonia comes in, a gypsy, and her family is from Romania which is where Andrei lives. She has been having some really steamy dreams of a man she has never met before. She's reluctant to believe the stories her grandmother has been telling her about since she was a child. Can something that sounds like a Disney flick be true? The story is just that, very Disney like quality to the fairytale of two fated lovers. The mystery behind the magic is alluring, and what pulls you into their lives. Although we don't have much time to go into detail with this novella, it is the way the story is told that holds you in place.
The characters of the story were easily empathized with by the personal connection I felt to both Sonia and her best friend Emma. Andrei stole my heart with his fierce compassion for human life, and especially the wrongful treatment of women. He is a man of stature, who has morals, love, and sympathy for all, and never once wanted for himself, but only wanted the best for his people. Who ever thought that a cursed witch, a cursed vampire, and a love sick gypsy would be so loyally devoted to one another only after a short period of time, but it worked. The story was believable, the characters were genuine. If I ever marry a billionaire, or uncover a family secret revealing I am a gypsy, I will not hesitate for one second that I am destined for a happily ever after...

A King cursed and unable to return home. A woman who doesn’t believe in her gypsy heritage.
Once I started, I couldn’t stop. The story is quick and the mating is insta. Andrei and Sonia were a great couple. The curse he is under is to fold and what must be done to break the curse is, heartbreaking and hopeful. I enjoyed the few surprise that we are treated to throughout the story.
The secondary characters where a delight. I liked Karenina. She is the witch that helps bring Andrei and Sonia together. Her story is a bit sad and who knows maybe she will find her special someone. We are also introduced to a few other men from the mist and get to see this other world.
I will say a few things felt repetitive. For one we have he witch telling Andrei a story, Andrei in turn tells Roman his friend the story, then the witch tells Sonia the same story who shares it with her grandmother. You get the picture. Even though we get a little repetitive I still enjoyed jumping into the Beyond The Mist series.
Passion Awakened treats us to a curse, heartbreak, and hope. If you enjoy Vampires and stories that take you on an emotional journey then this book is possibility for you. I had a wonderful time and look forward to the next installment.
