Tagline: Her biggest mistake will save him and her destiny will be fulfilled in the arms of an Ancient Vampire
There are no mistakes only destiny waiting to be fulfilled. Awakened by the blood of the one woman destined to be his. Ethan escapes, determined to claim Aria as his own and seek revenge on those who have imprisoned him for over two hundred years. Giving him blood is one thing, but losing her heart to an ancient vampire is another. Aria will fight his possession every step the way.
Destined Hearts was packed full of action, suspense and vampires. The beginning was a bit slow, but a few pages in I was hooked. I felt for Aria and her need to do something against her ideals to provide a better life for her. Misguided, when she was led into danger, I truly felt meeting Ethan was by divine fate, even if not pleasant at the time. I enjoyed how stubborn she was and the glimpses of her upbringing, showing how she ticked. She had a ton of strength that fit well with our Hero Ethan.
Ethan might’ve thought himself a monster, but not of his own making. Circumstances do not make the man, I was tickled at his confusion and felt it matched his confusion with the current date. He adapted rather quickly and it was great to see the predator could acclimate to his surroundings and bring himself up to date quickly. He had a hard journey ahead of him to exact revenge and take his rightful place back in his family.
The passion in this story was white hot and I enjoyed the displays of intimacy that grew as the story deepened. In the end it was great to see some answers given for questions Aria had stemming from her childhood. I can’t wait to read the next story of these sexy intriguing males and their heroines.
