Cain Thaler's lived more than four hundred years fighting rogue immortals, avenging the family he'd lost. It's all he's needed, all he's wanted. That changes the fateful day he lays eyes on his fated mate. Olivia Waden, a werewolf princess, is nothing like him. Unwilling to give her up, he sets a plan into motion: ignoring his need to claim her, he befriends her. Despite Cain's best efforts at friendship, Olivia has fallen hard for him. It is him she dreams of, him she wants as her fated mate. But she is sure he doesn't feel the same way. In way over her head, she has no option but to run away from the only man she's ever loved. Will Cain find Olivia before it's too late or will their differences tear them apart?

What is one pretty consistent thing about fated pairs in paranormal romances? Instant attraction, right? Instant need to be together, no matter what, am I right? Meet Cain, the immortal demon warrior with more self-control and insecurities than any warrior hero I’ve ever met. Cain thinks he has nothing to offer his fated mate, Olivia, a werewolf princess, as she is royalty and he is simply an adopted demon, even though his adopted family is royalty, he is still a man without roots. Feeling unworthy, he tries the next best thing to still be able to watch over this fiery shifter, he becomes her friend without benefits, but how long can he hold back his feelings and resist the need to claim her? If only she would feel the same... With an overprotective brother, who just happens to be the werewolf king, Olivia is kept under constant guard, even though she is trained as a fierce warrior herself, because of course, her brother thinks he knows best. Olivia longs for Cain, but he has never shown the same level of desire she feels, and why make a fool of herself? And then it happens, that moment when the barrier of restraint falls and the heat index rises, amazing what honesty can do for a couple destined to be together! Olivia’s brother has other ideas for his sister, she would make a wonderful political match with a newfound pack. Will Cain and Olivia be pulled apart just when they’ve finally admitted their feelings? When the king gets the memo, what will he do? He has the power to ensure they can never be together, but would that be hypocrisy on his part? Doesn’t he understand his sister has a life? Has Fate changed its mind about these two? Will impending battle force them apart or will they take a leap of faith that crosses the boundary of their races? I’ve said it before; J.L. Shepard knows how to fuel the flames of love and desire with practiced ease. From the first page, there is a touch of humor, endearing moments of humanity and need, high energy tension and romantic drama. Can you imagine the steam when the floodgates of desire and passion are finally released? Holy hotness! I fell in love with her main characters; imagine a huge and ancient warrior brought to his knees by a tiny little princess, of course, that princess holds an impressive bite when she wants, but still... I felt such a connection with this story, I felt like a cheerleader for Team Cain, all the way! J.L. Shepard’s gift for mixing it up with the supernaturals is brilliant story-telling.

This is the first book that I have read of Ms. Sheppard's While I was told that this was derived from a previous series, from what I can tell, I didn't feel that I was lost in any way by not having any history of any of the characters. This book holds such a sweet, beautiful love story. It proves that no matter the species, love wins, when you believe in it! I recommend this to anyone who loves an endearing romance, that is also paranormal. Onward to Fate Forgotten (Fated Immortals #2)

Although this is a new series for this author, it feels like a old favorite because you are still in that same world of the Elemental's. Cain and Olivia's story is every bit as good as previous stories and I look forward to reading future books in this series. From the beginning Cain has been a favorite of mine so it was great to see him get his fated mate and find his happiness. If you liked previous works by this author than you will absolutely love this one too.
