Undying Destiny by Jessica Lee is a provocative tale filled with
Emily, the sweet human who has had a rough life and seems to have the worst luck with men. Of course Emily stumbles upon a vampire that needs her help and she cannot resist her nature to help others. Kenric and Emily find themselves on a brutal path that neither one of them knows how to navigate, where they will end up or if they should just continue to deny what lies deep inside them.
Now, Marguerite is on the war path to permanently remove Emily from the picture, but Kenric refuses to let her win again.
Undying Destiny was a fantastic read with its vivid imagery, witty dialogue, troubled characters, and the intensity between Emily and Kenric. I give 4 ½ stars and a highly recommend if you like paranormal romances that touch on secret wantings and devilishly handsome heroes.
I cannot wait to see what comes next for the Enclave!
(I received an ARC for my review and this is my honest-to-goodness, straight from the heart review!)

In Undying Destiny, Kendric St. James is a master vampire that r
One night, as he's injured in the road, Emily Ross, a nurse runs into him. She helps him and that literally changes her life.
The characters are great. I love that we can see the hurt and turmoil that has occurred in Emily's life. My favorite part is how Kendric is this huge, domineering, alpha male vampire but at the same time can be the most gentle, caring and freeing person in the world. They click and work together. Their chemistry is off the charts. And Kendric will do anything to save her and I love that.
Secondary characters are also developed and I have a particular soft spot for the Scottish Enclave warriors. What can I say, I'm a sucker for the accents. Anyway, while the character developments were fantastic, I felt that the story was too predictable. Even when there was danger, I didn't feel it. Everything happens just like you think it will. It just felt too much like it was just a set up for the upcoming books in the series. Saying that, I feel like the upcoming books will be a lot better since the set up is already done and now we can go on and delve more into "what happens next?"
Definitely check this one out if you are a fan of vampires, especially sexy, protective and awesome ones like Kendric. =)

Undying Destiny started of very angry, and that made it a bit ha
Undying Destiny started of very angry, and that made it a bit hard for me to get into. While it was descriptive enough to make me “feel” the anger of the character, it made me hesitant to read further. By chapter six, it seems to be nothing more than a knock-off of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Although the details were different, the concept is the same…a group of warrior vampires living and working together to protect the vampire and human civilians. If you’ve read the BDB series you will immediately see that even the scenarios in the book are very similar, making it hard to want to continue reading what feels like a copy cat.
The difference here is Kenric’s sexually charged, tyrannical sire that will do anything and everything in her power to regain control of him. Her sadistic ego cannot allow her to accept that he escaped her clutches, and she wants him back.
After about chapter 8 it was easier for me to get into the story and care about the characters. Yet in the end instead of having the feel of a cliff hanger, Undying Destiny felt like more of a letdown. For me there was no edge of my seat excitement in fight scenes, and even though the love scenes were steamy, it was not enough for me rate this book any more than a 1 star read.
