For Basha Argeneau, anything is better than facing her estranged family. Even hiding out in sweltering southern California. But when a sexy immortal in black shows up determined to bring her back to the clan, she’ll do anything to keep far, far away from the past she can’t outrun.
Marcus Notte isn’t here to play games—especially not with someone as crazy as the infamous blonde. Asked by Lucian Argeneau to bring her back for questioning, Marcus is determined to carry out Lucian’s request—no matter how the seductive little mind-reading vamp feels about it.
Basha doesn’t mind fighting fire with fire, especially with a hot immortal involved. But if he wants to take her away, he’ll have to catch her first . . .
Basha Argeneau, now known as Divine has been on the run from her family for as long as she can remember. She is afraid that if Uncle Lucian finds her and her son Damian, he will kill them. She has been considered a rogue for years and is always on the move. She’s made her home with many different carnivals over the years and now her uncle’s spy has found her. He’s sexy and she can’t seem to get him out of her head. He represents a future she dreams about but doesn’t think she can ever have.
Marcus Notte has been going through the motions of life for a while now. He has always been there to help watch out for friends and family but lately he doesn’t feel like he’s needed by anybody. When he gets the request to help Lucian look for his niece, he never dreamed he would find his life mate in the process. Things become complicated when he realizes the true identity of his life mate.
Divine/Basha has tried to live her life helping people to make up for her past. She was abducted as a child and put through Hell. She was badly scarred by her experiences but at least she was able to finally get away with her son. She tried to raise him to be a good person, she just never dreamed he would turn out like his father. With Marcus’ help, things begin to come out that make Divine question everything that she was ever told by Abaddon. She’s sure that her Uncle Lucian will never let her or her son live so she has resigned herself to a life without her life mate, alone.
Both Marcus and Divine have spent their life always for others, never really doing or taking anything for themselves. When they realize they are life mates, Marcus is ready to spend his life on the run if he has to. He believes that based on circumstances that he can convince Lucian to spare her life, at least he hopes he can.
I have a love/hate relationship with these books because of the nanos they ALWAYS find their perfect mate. It’s hard not to fall in love with the characters and root for them though. Both Marcus and Divine have been through a lot over the years but now they have each other and a future together, they are no longer alone.
These are some of my favorite books because they packed full action, love and humor. Some of my favorite moments are from early books in this series, like the codpiece incident. There were several comical moments in this book too that had me laughing out loud. Another thing I love about this series is that each book has an appearance by some of the former characters so you get an update on what is going on in their lives too.
