Book Description
Release date: May 7, 2013 | Series: The Amoveo Legend
The Amoveo are shapeshifting animal clans who live secretly among humans and must find their pre-destined soul mates while avoiding the enemy that seeks to destroy them all.
Party girl Marianna Coltari is an unmated pureblood Amoveo who wants nothing to do with the ongoing war that took her father's life and continues to consume her brother Dante's. But when she is targeted by one of the clans, she has little choice but to run and hide in a cabin with Pete Castro, a retired cop from her brother's security firm. There, Pete and Marianna explore an intensifying attraction between them until danger is at the door and there's no escape.


Review:
Marianna is a pureblood Amoveo from the Bear Clan who feels time running out to find her soul mate. She doesn’t want to take sides in the Amoveo war that has pitted those who promote only “pureblood” mates, the purists, and those who are taking hybrid, half-Amoveo mates. Her father was a Purist who lost his life while her brother, Dante, is married to a hybrid.

Marianna buries her frustration by partying and hanging out at a Vampire nightclub. Hayden, another Pureblood Bear is tagging along hoping to convince Marianna to mate with him even though he isn’t her mate.  Dante has appointed Pete, an ex-cop and security man, to guard Marianna by posing as her chauffeur.

Pete has always been attracted to Marianna but knows that he doesn’t stand a chance with her since he is merely human. Marianna recognizes the attraction, and even senses some dream and mind telepathy between them. But she knows that line of interest would be a dead end. When other pureblood females start disappearing, Pete temporarily neutralizes Marianna’s powers so he can move her to a safe place and her powers won’t be tracked. This puts them in isolation and tempts the chemistry.

As soon as Marianna’s powers return she blithely goes for a walk on the wild side and trouble appears in the form of the Purists to kidnap her. Pete is livid and discovers something new about his own nature–something that just might give him an edge in the battle to rescue Marianna and the other missing femailes.

I liked Pete and Marianna and their warm--well hot, really–connection. There is enough plot story and action to keep the book interesting beyond the love scenes. I wasn’t totally surprised by Pete’s discovery and I was totally disgusted by Marianna’s idiot free romp when they were supposed to be in hiding. That was a “duh” moment. I have really enjoyed this series and I appreciate how Ms. Humphrey’s is able to keep the writing and plot fast paced. It makes for a satisfying romance read.

I received this book for an honest review for Sourcebooks.
