Born in shame. Cast from society. Shape Shifter/Elf hybrid, Forest must fight for any respect she can get. Targeted in her youth by a vampire noble who placed an illegal slave mark on her, she is forced to obey him, no matter what. Slipping the grip of her master and abandoning the prejudice of Regia, her native world, Forest takes a job on Earth, guarding the portal, using her skills as a warrior to enforce Regia's laws. Now, called home for a black ops mission, Forest must put aside her own prejudice to transport the vampire prince, Syrus, through enemy territory in a time of war.
Prince Syrus, mage and master of the Blood Kata, wants Forest more than he's ever wanted anything. In spite of their mutual mistrust, their attraction cannot be denied. Through the danger of their mission, and the secrets they both keep, it doesn't matter what they feel. Forest is forbidden.
This is such a great read!! The cover was what got me at first. I’ll admit, if the cover doesn't appeal to me then I probably won't read it. I LOVE this book cover, very eye catching. I really like Forest, she is a warrior. Strong, smart, feisty, dedicated to her job, and likes to test people's patience just for a laugh. The main characters are perfect for each other! They have both lived hard lives and have overcome many challenges, which is why they understand each other. Forest hates vampires and has a damn good reason to, but she can't deny or fight this connection to the Prince. This book has adventure, romance, and a few hilarious parts as well! I can't wait to read more in this series!! :)) Rate: 4 out of 5 stars
