Reawakening by K.L. Kreig
“I’m not a piece of property that you can just claim, Romaric.”
Having been held hostage for a month by vicious vampires, Sarah is now recovering in the most unlikely of places…the shelter that her sister, Kate and her vampire mate, Devon, opened to help such victims as herself. After months under the watchful eye of her sister, she’s finally put a plan into motion to secure her future when a very imposing, very stoic and utterly drop dead gorgeous vampire takes her world by storm and turns it completely upside down.
“Ah, but that’s where you’re wrong, my beauty. You are mine and I’ve come to do exactly that.”
Romaric Dietrich, West Regent Vampire Lord is one of the oldest vampires alive. He’s cold, calculating and nearly unmatched in power. Vampires recognize their Moiras instantaneously and upon first laying eyes on Sarah Hill, he senses she’s his. His Moira. His Destined mate. The one woman meant to be his and his alone. But how is that possible when he’d loved and lost his first? In his quest to uncover the truth, not only does he discover that Sarah is indeed the other half of his soul, but he’s put himself, and his mate, in the crosshairs of yet another very powerful enemy.
Only bonded together do they have the power to win the battles ahead.
With one look into his icy-blues, Sarah knows that Romaric is not the aloof, uncaring enigma he pretends to be. Underneath his cool, rough exterior lays a passionate, romantic and fiercely loving heart of gold. As they fight the battles to come, Sarah holds the key to not only unlocking his centuries hardened soul, but to the one thing that will save them both from this new nemesis.
But will she make her decision in time? And will they finally get the happiness they both deserve?
**Warning…this book contains graphic sex and foul language and is only recommended for those over 18. Also, while this can be read as a stand-alone, I would not recommend it, as the underlying storyline continues from the previous books in this series.
Thoughts by Cherri-Anne
Sweet. Holy. Mother.
You are my Destiny. My Fate. You, my insolent beauty, are my Moira, which makes you One. Hundred. Percent. Mine.”Oh.My.Holy.God.” Rom was intense to the ‘nth’ degree. WHEW! WHAT A RUSH! I cannot believe how awesome this series is! And it only keeps getting better with each & every story. K.L. is very talented and I adore her writing style!! She has written such an enthralling and addictive series and each book pulls me into its clutches even deeper than the last! This being Sarah & Rom's story, I wasn't fully sure what to expect. Romaric is nothing but a gruff, curt surly vampire who is used to being in charge & never questioned about anything, whereas Sarah has been through a rough ordeal and vows to make some changes, starting with leaving her meek & submissive persona behind. HA!!! Poor Rom! NOT! “Bring it, vamp boy. You’ve met your match.” hahahaha Since Rom has a never-shared-with-anyone secret that involves losing his Moira, how is it possible that Sarah is also his? “How could she possibly be his Moira? His Fate? His Destiny? She couldn’t. Plain and simple.” I love their personalities, attitudes and their naughty sides. “Holy balls that felt good.” “Holy … Holy. There were no words.” And my personal favorite (of what I can share at least) is “…surely heard her just scream like a banshee.” With lines like these - and more, oh so many more - K.L. has managed to take what is an extremely amazing & deep overall story arc, and a rich & intense storyline in this book, and lighten it up with a lot of great humor, teasing, wicked one liners, naughty phrases & moments but in a way that does NOT stray or take away from the solemn tones. I love it all because it helps to diffuse the intensity while not making light of or fun of, the horrors that have been and still are, going on. There was a couple of heart wrenching moments that had me sobbing and/or crying like a baby, while others had me in tears I was laughing so hard! It is an exceptionally well thought out & played out addition to this fangtabulous series!! I hope it never ends! I love that even with this being the third book in the series, every book is still fresh, entertaining, engrossing but most of all unique! Each story IS its own story. They don't follow the same cookie cutter plan, boy meets girl, boy loves girl, they fight, they almost die, they make up and officially become mates. I love that the same people are in the books so you can check in and see how they are doing, what's new with them, etc. However each book, while following an overall interconnecting story arc, the main focus is on one couple and their journey to a HEA. Or at least in theory! There is a deep overall storyline that flows with each book, but it is the 'main' storyline that draws & keeps your attention riveted and makes you hunger for more! With K.L.'s own phenomenal gift, she skilfully combines all of these attributes and more into one of THE BEST vampire books & series that I have read in a really long time, if ever!!
