Goodreads Summary:
This seductive paranormal series continues with a brutal Highland werewolf and an exquisite young witch, adversaries with a blood vendetta between them.
Her breathless kiss haunts him...
Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan was nearly destroyed when he lost the one woman meant for him. The ruthless warrior grew even colder, never taking another to his bed—until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited, reawakens his darkest desires. When sinister forces unite against her, the Highlander finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive.
His slow, hot touch is irresistible...
Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. It's rumored that no one can tempt Bowen's hardened heart, but soon passion burns between them. Though a future together is impossible, she fears he has no intention of letting her go.
No deed is too wicked for her seduction...
If they defeat the evil that surrounds them, can Mari deny Bowen when he demands her body and soul—or will she risk everything for her fierce protector?

This was a pretty decent romance story. There is the one whole cliche that is attached to this entire series that drives me nuts (that some of the immortals fall in love on sight of their mate) but other than that, this is a fun, exciting book. I loved the hero, Bowen. I also like how Kresley Cole isn't afraid to make her women the stronger characters. 

I will continue to pick up this series when I can (and most likely continue the trend of reading the stories completely out of order). But they're not gotta have it now books.
