About this ebook

Jocelyn Davis is stuck between two worlds but not completely a part of either. As an Elemental, her abilities over the elements of the Earth won’t evolve until she meets her fated, the man destined for her. Until then, she’s easy prey and coveted by Malum Inmortalis, the rogue immortals intent on conquering the world. They abducted her once before. Still, she’s determined to live her life to its fullest, and risking capture isn’t slowing her down.

Alpha werewolf, Landon Waden, has lived with the knowledge his fated female, the one woman created for him, is just beyond his reach. For months, he’s denied her. He’s had no choice. She can’t give him what the pack needs—an heir. When an attempt is made on her life, he can’t help himself. His instinct demands he make sure she’s safe. But then, there’s one problem: he can’t walk away. He won’t. If only she can forgive him for his greatest mistake…

Ripped from her sisters after the death of her parents, then tossed from family to family thanks to a broken foster care system she finds herself in hell. Imprisoned and dropped in the middle of something she had no knowledge of. Fated mates. His people depend on him to breed an alpha. He’s finally found his fated mate. The choice between accepting this gift and standing by his people has him in dire straits. But it comes down to so much more. Over coming years of solitude, self-esteem, and just plain old stubborn pride they have one hell of a battle. Not only will they have to deal with the challenges of being fated mates of different breeds, someone wants her. . . bad. Loved all of the action and interplay with these two and of course the supporting cast who are vital to the story. This is an emotional one and it got me to the core. The pain of rejection and emotional baggage are felt. The torment of separation is real. This author makes you feel each emotion and every tear. The confusion for each of them as they navigate unknown territory and enemies. It’s a wild ride from start to finish.
