Beforewarned - this is not the usual paranormal romance. Morgan is the typical strong but damaged female heroine, Calhoun is the typical alpha male-slvt, and they have the typical "insta" connection... but everything diverges from there. Biology is NOT destiny in this case and while they might need to get along for the good of the world, that doesn't mean that it's going to be easy sailing. I LOVED IT. So many books have the heroine putting up with all sorts of crap from the hero - not in this book. Morgan not only lets him have it when he deserves it, but when he tosses her away because he doesn't think she could be his "fated," she does her bit of being sad, and then she picks herself up and MOVES ON. With a man that actually deserves her. Not only that, but just knowing that there's a bit of fated business going on doesn't mean that she has to give into it. Calhoun is going to have to actually man up and deserve a second chance with her- and honestly, who knows if he's even going to get one.
I love Morgan. She's damaged, she's feisty, she's got a bit of a temper, but she's also strong, realistic, and exactly the type of heroine that I often wish a main character would be. Not once did I think "oh no... she's letting him get away with everything while she just sits there like a puritanical Harlequin virgin". Uh, uh, none of that. Morgan knows she deserves to be someone special to someone else, she's not going to put up with some jerk changing his mind about her just because of "fate" or a biological imperative. It was perfect.
Drummond does quite a bit of world building as well, all of which incredibly enjoyable. There's vamps vs. shifters but they're not entirely of this earth. Not all vamps are necessarily bad, but the good ones are very few and far between. Not all shifters are good either, and a lot of possible upheaval is hinted at for the future, which should be a lot of fun to read about. Morgan and Calhoun are going to be forced together for practical reasons, and I hope we get to see a lot of him groveling and shaping up his act, as well as getting to know Morgan better so that when (if) they do get together, he'll actually be worthy of her and appreciate her for all she is.
Personally, I'm hoping for a menage relationship, because I adore Thane, the third point of the triangle (I'm not calling it a love triangle because Calhoun kinda messed up any hope for quick love from Morgan, and their relationship is going to take a lot of work till he gets to be part of an actual LOVE triangle). This is so well handled, because Thane appreciates Morgan for who she is before anyone realizes she might be the fated female half of shifter leadership. They help each other as she deals with the difficult transition from human to shifter, and I really don't want to see him hurt in the end.
This book is so fantastic. It's everything I've been wanting in a romance, ignores so many of the tropes and cliches, and gives the reader a real heroine who is NOT going to put up with shoddy treatment from her so-called hero, and she's not going to demand better from him, she's just going to go get what she deserves from someone else.
Outside of the romance, the world building is fascinating and wonderful, the side characters are interesting and complex, the villains are not as scary as they could be because they only get brief focus for the moment but their potential is enormous and I can't wait to see where everything goes. And now I'm off to check out Ms. Drummond's other books while I impatiently wait for the next one in this series!

I love a good strong lead female character but the lead protagonist was just a plain old bitch.
