Do you like sexy vampires and werewolves with non-stop action and romance? Destined Mate is a novella you can sink your teeth into then!

Two hundred years ago Angela Lavigne fled her home and her love when she was turned into a vampire against her will. Knowing her lover's intense hate of vampires she couldn't take the chance of him killing her, so she disappeared never expecting to see him again. When Angela believes her friend and fellow vampire is kidnapped though by a pack of werewolves she storms their keep only to come face to face with the one man that has the capability of destroying both her life and her heart.
Knox is a powerful and fearsome werewolf alpha, titles well deserved with a thousand years of life, but he never forgot the young women he fell in love with centuries ago. When she suddenly appears in his home, Knox is not going to let her disappear on him again and will use any means necessary to keep her in his arms, including using the irresistible attraction between them to remind her of what it can be like once more. But can Knox convince Angela that he has changed his stance on vampires since her turning, assure her that they can overcome vampire/werewolf discrimination and prove that she's his Destined Mate?

What can I say about Destined Mates besides that I loved it?!?! It was a fast-paced, sexy and all together captivating novella that I was able to finish in one night. Katie Reus builds a vivid paranormal world where vampire and werewolves have deep seated hate but a shaky truce, the dynamics and politics of the two races was fascinating and added an important element to the story and Knox's relationship with Angela.

I always find it more believable when a couple featured in a novella have a past history together; this makes the fast-paced relationship realistic and still gives the couple plenty of time to work out their conflicts and issues. In this case, Knox needs to understand why Angela left him and Angela needs to believe that Knox has lost his intrinsic hate for the Vampire race while trusting that discrimination in his pack will not come between them in the future. An irrevocable bond formed between them two hundred years ago and despite their lengthy separation passion and desire still flame high. I was intrigued by both characters right away, Angela's willingness to face danger and possible death for a friend and Knox's leadership and dedication to the woman he loves. Katie Reus got the part of alpha hero just right with a strong, dominating male who has just enough charm and give. She gives readers a sensual romance and a couple that you can easily fall in love with.

Add to that the action and tension, you end up with a fabulous paranormal romance with plenty of spice. I'm looking forward to the next novella in this series!

Too short, only 59 total pages on the nook

The book IS NOT worth the money. The story is actually only 50 pages, 59 total with the table of contents, author's note, etc. I wish I would have known BEFORE I purchased it.
