Marco De Lucia is a very influential man. Handsome, rich, and very powerful. Marco has a secret that few know about and live to tell it. He’s a wolf.

From the moment Marco steps into Amanda’s life everything spins out of her control. Marco tells her about fate, destiny and her obligations. She was born to be his...

Marco has waited three hundred years to finally find Amanda and fulfill their destiny. He knows who she is...he just has to convince her of that.

There are others that aren’t too excited that Marco’s found his mate. Others that will stop at nothing to make sure the prophecy isn’t fulfilled...

My Review:

This is brilliant! A shifter book for adults that isn’t all sex. Fuller keeps you captivated with her story about real adults, doing real work and life related things, with a heaping side of magical transformation. But don’t get me wrong. This novel is definitely still hot. The bedroom scenes are simply worked into the storyline proper. Fuller uses them to develop the plot rather than as a break from it.

I appreciate the fact that this was a well put together, quick read that kept me focussed on the story at hand. Fuller melds romance with suspense and the concept of life mates together to keep you hooked. That said, I did find myself tripping over the spelling and grammar a few times. Nothing major, and the captivating story covered for it, but it was there. Fuller’s fast paced narrative keeps you running forward with the story line trying to guess what’s going to happen next.

The characters in this novel definitely heightened the intensity of the story. They stood out as individuals and as couples. This went for both the main characters and the prominent secondary characters. The fact that they are also bound up in prophecy, human conventions, and wolf conventions makes it all the more exciting. You not only get to know these characters but come to enjoy their company.

About the author:

As an Author, I love romance. Paranormal Romance happens to be a favorite of mine. I have always been an avid reader and a few years ago I discovered a passion for writing as well. I live in the Panhandle of Florida, and I have been happily married to a wonderful man for the last twenty-seven years. I have two grown children and 1 grandchild. When I am not writing and running my own publishing company I can be found camping with my husband or attending a NASCAR race. Please visit my websites. I am always adding something new.
