     Mia Roman was the love of Lucas St. Clair, but his family had other plans. He eventually chose family over love until he was captured and his priorities changed. A dead man had a picture of Mia with an ominous message attached. His new challenge is to find out why Mia is involved and protect her with help from his ARES friends.
     This was a good one for me. The plot of murder added some very lovely intrigue and suspense that was like a CSI love story. It was also interesting to have the family vs love plot line to keep things going. As a person who reads a lot, I would recommend this book to many of my friends from romance to crime readers.

*****


     Cassie is a werewolf. She can see the future, but she can’t shapeshift. Her DNA was altered in utero to deprive her of that ability. And her life has gone downhill since then. Cassie was separated from her sisters. She was held captive for decades. She was finally rescued, but now the Dark Lord is hunting her.
     Caine was a cur, a werewolf created by bite rather than by birth. He rescued Cassie and was rewarded by being transformed into a Pureblood were. Saving Cassie changed Caine more than just physically. Instead of being self-centered, he now lives for Cassie. In fact, he's in love with her. He believes that she will never return his feeling. He thinks that he’s not worthy of her love. Cassie may have to resort to drastically sexy measures to change his mind.
     Meanwhile, the Dark Lord is intent on capturing Cassie. He’ll force her to use her visions to tell him how to create a future in which he rules the world.
     This is a continuation of a really good series. While it’s not imperative that one have read the previous books before reading this one, it’s strongly advised. The cast of characters is enormous. Without the background of the other stories, it’s virtually impossible to keep everyone straight. This is a really good book.
