Adira Brennan never felt so foolish. Jensen never intended to mate with her, never intended to use her for anything except a good time until his true mate returned. Now, with her magic in shards thanks to using it to bring harm, Adira is sent to Bull Creek to help the alpha there take a stand against a pack of coyotes, but can she rely on her magic when the time comes?
Sent to Bull Creek by the Paranormal Council, Dimitri Everest kept a close eye on the hodge-podge collection of residents that made up the community, too busy to open his eyes or his heart to the possibilities of romance. Then Adira arrived and the panther within Dimitri did more than just purr.
This is the first book in the Destined Mates series. The story’s main protagonist is Adria. She is a witch done wrong by a wolf shifter. I mean really wrong. She decides at the urging of a fellow witch to check out Bull Creek. I mean why not get out into the wilderness. Help those people who need help. It will be a breath of fresh air. But the older witch does nothing without a plan in place. Oh and her magic is on the fritz, but its because of the above-mentioned wolf shifter.
Dimitri is a cougar shifter, or I guess a mountain lion or a Panther depending on where you are from. Anyways, he is the leader of Bull Creek. Bull Creek is somewhere I would like to live, a place where people can be themselves. It is a place for the broken. Not to wallow in their pain, but to fix themselves. Regardless of shifter, power, human, Bull Creek is a safe haven. Or it was. No safe haven is without those who want to control, those who want to be in power, those with an agenda.
Can Dimitri protect his town from those who wish to do it harm? Will Adria fix her power? Is peace out there for two individuals with damage? Well since I read the book, I know. But you will need to read it as I don’t give up the goods, at least without some libations and a good conversation.
Obviously, as one who reads my reviews, you will notice that I read them out of order. Yes, I was offered #7 to read as an ARC before official publication. So, I read it. #1 has been sitting since I bought it at BoBase earlier this year. I know I am horrible with both reviews and reading my TBR list, but I swear I am getting better. With the minion out of the house soon for school, I should have more time to read. That’s what they all say though, right?
This book has some heat, I mean you have mated partners, there is going to be some heat. It doesn’t have as much as with some of Robbie’s other books, so if you are looking for a book that burns your fingers from the heat, this one may just singe a little. Overall, I like the way the world is building. As it is the first in the series, there is world-building versus character building that comes into play. Since I already knew a little about their stories from book 7, to know the origins of Adria really helps to form the world in a better way in my mind.
