Cara Paulsen does not give up easily. A scientist and a single mother, she’s used to fighting for what she wants, keeping a cool head, and doing whatever it takes to protect her daughter Janie. But “whatever it takes” has never before included a shotgun wedding to a dangerous-looking stranger with an attitude problem. . .
Sure, the mysterious Talen says that he’s there to protect Cara and Janie. He also says that he’s a three-hundred-year-old vampire. Of course, the way he touches her, Cara might actually believe he’s had that long to practice. . .
This story had me at Page 2!
This story starts off with a bang and had me drawn in right from the beginning. The characters were well written and the plot was enjoyable. I couldn’t put it down.
There were enough side plots and well written minor characters that have me panting to see what happens next. Her next book Claimed comes out in November of 2011 which features Emma and Dage, both of whom you get to meet in Fated, and I, for one, can’t wait to see how their story plays out.
Other subplots that left me wanting more include her daughter, Janie, the shifters, the other vampire brothers. I am looking forward to more books.
I can see this being one of my next favorite series.

“Nice timing,” the soldier said with a grimace.
Talon snorted. “You’re relieved in case you need to powder your cheeks.”
