If you haven’t started keeping track of families in this series, you are definitely going to want to. Things are heating up and getting hotter by the book!
Jed Steele is in Italy, visiting the DeMedici vineyards. Looking to learn more to help take his family vineyard in Sonoma, he is startled to find his fated mate. If his mate’s father hadn’t been with him, things might have taken an entirely different path.
The Darkness has risen and has a new host in its grasp.
I have known Jed Steele my whole life. It isn’t until he sees me walking in the family vineyards in Tuscany that he decides I am his fated mate.
I have my life planned and it does not include a fated mate. A job offer in San Francisco combined with an invitation to visit New Orleans for a friend’s restaurant opening gives me the perfect excuse for leaving home. He can’t claim me if I am not here.
The trip was supposed to be something new and exciting. Instead it has turned into a nightmare. Evil was waiting for me and its powers are growing. Only a force greater than evil can stop what’s coming next.
An ancient evil on the rise. Will they be able to work together before the evil extinguishes the light?
Dorothy 4.0 out of 5 stars Good read Reviewed in the United States on October 17, 2021 Verified Purchase This was a good read. It was not as exciting as Skylar and Travis story but still good. I am still not a fan of BDSM clubs I feel that should be in private and at home not in a club but again to each his own. And not to scare anyone off who reads my review no the book is not only talking about that. This is a true keep you on your toes story. A good read. I am looking forward to the next read.
Redrabbitt 5.0 out of 5 stars FATED MATE—WHO’D HAVE THOUGHT IT? Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2021 “Your granddaughter has destroyed his minion, but the Darkness is clever and abandoned the body before its demise. The Evil One hides in the shadows of the city, seeking another to help it escape. Watch over your people, Calista. The Darkness seeks to conquer the Light, and it is the children of the wolves who will battle this evil.” –MawMaw Chantal “The Darkness had been banished for now, but not vanquished. The Darkness could only be contained, but she feared it might never be defeated.” The series is an ongoing saga. I love that we see the next generation—the offspring of those from Wayward Mates and Tangled Vines—but we also get to catch up with the couples from the first two series. The story takes place in 2048 and moves around the globe. Josiah ‘Jed’ Steele will be in Florence, Italy, visiting Marco DeMedici’s vineyards and seeing Luca Marion. Still, when he sees Katarina Marino, he knows she is his fated mate. “Still, without thought he rumbled to her quietly, enjoying her surprised response.” Luca: No apology for calling to my daughter before speaking with me? Jed: I fear not. My family history is not that of wolves who ask permission to claim what is theirs. Would I like your blessing and that are Marco? Of course, but one way or another, your daughter is my fated mate and you saw proof of that with your own eyes. Luca: That I did, and I suspect it was what provoked her sudden departure. The story’s plot will have Jed calling to Kat, and she decides to use the excuse of going to New Orleans for the soft opening of Loup de Mer restaurant, to go there early. She will leave Italy, and it won’t be long before Jed learns she has left—but he knows that she is his—and she has to know, he will come for her. With the multiple murders in New Orleans tied to a dark entity, MawMaw Chantal warns Skylar and Kat that the Darkness is not gone and seeks a stronger host, one who will do its bidding. The story will revolve around the relationship and claiming of Kat by Jed—but also it will include the Darkness, and how it will affect them. “The stronger the host, the stronger the Darkness. Wolves are inherently stronger; it would value one of you as a host.” Kat: I-I don’t understand Jed: What? I wasn’t supposed to understand that you can’t allow this Darkness thing to roam free to create havoc and mayhem? Come on Kat, give me credit for being smarter than that. Kat: You’re coming with me? Jed: What else would I do? Kat: But what about your responsibilities here? Jed: I am your fated mate. You are my primary and most important responsibility. So no, my beautiful mate, we are in this together. Kat: You understand Jed: I do indeed. Again, I am your fated mate. “Often what we don’t understand is easier to dismiss than to explain.” –Chantal The story will leave America and have Kat and Jed going to London, England, to attend Mariah’s exhibition. They will meet with Simon Howard, the son of the Alpha of London, and discuss some things that have happened—the next story will pick up from here. Jed: We were able to track the Darkness and the Hunters to England and then lost them. Simon: Any idea why it came here? Jed: We think looking for more Hunters. Simon: That would make sense. What is your plan? Jed: Keep my mate safe and destroy it. Simon: How will you do that? Jed: That’s the problem—we don’t have the faintest idea.
