Book 1 of Fated Immortals
Paranormal Romance

Cain Thaler's lived more than four hundred years fighting rogue immortals, avenging the family he'd lost. It's all he's needed, all he's wanted. That changes the fateful day he lays eyes on his fated mate.

Olivia Waden, a werewolf princess, is nothing like him. Unwilling to give her up, he sets a plan into motion: ignoring his need to claim her, he befriends her. Despite Cain's best efforts at friendship, Olivia has fallen hard for him. It is him she dreams of, him she wants as her fated mate. But she is sure he doesn't feel the same way. In way over her head, she has no option but to run away from the only man she's ever loved.

Will Cain find Olivia before it's too late or will their differences tear them apart?

This series is here to stay, thank goodness! I actually read the second book in this series first and I stated in that review one of my favorite things about this series is that there are many different types of paranormal. These books are all about the couple and romance, hot nail-biting romance.

Many times during paranormal romance books, really any romance genre books, I will comment on the action and mystery that the novels have as well. These books so far do not really have those aspects, that being said, it is a refreshing change. Sometimes you might find yourself saying "just get together already or rush to get to the good parts", but this is not a problem with this series. The good parts are all throughout.

The only reason I rated this 4 stars instead of 5, is the desire to hear more about their gifts. Demons, werewolves, witches, etc. Their strengths and weaknesses and just more about their characters.

This series has so much potential, I do not want to miss anything. Ms. Sheppard could take this in many different directions. Take Larissa Ione, her first Demonica book, Pleasure Unbound, received some really bad reviews that made fun of different things, but as you know, it is now one of the most beloved paranormal series. I will not be making this mistake with Ms. Sheppard and can not wait for more in this series, especially when it comes to one hunky Lycan alpha. So don't waste any more time; start this series and read AWAITING FATE.
