Almost a century ago, Angela Lavigne and Alpha werewolf Knox had a shared a passion neither could control. Then Angela was turned into a vampire and disappeared.
The last thing Knox expects is for Angela to show up on his doorstep on a rescue mission, as sexy and irresistible as ever. And he can sense how much she still wants him, too. She's gone against both their species' rules and trespassed on his land. By law he can keep her as long as he wants—and Knox doesn't intend to let her go ever again.
As their desire explodes once again, Knox is more sure than ever that he's must claim her forever. But as vampire and werewolf, they are natural born enemies. Can she truly be his destined mate?

Non-stop from beginning to end, DESTINED MATE is high-octane action both in and out of the bedroom.
Angela is on a potential suicide mission and possibly start a war between vampires and werewolves. To some this might be considered a really stupid thing to do, but to Angela this mission is worth the risk. The plan is simple – just bypass forest security and rush the prison doubling as a mansion where the werewolves live and rescue her friend. After that she has no clue what to do next in her rescue attempt, but at least she won't have to make that decision alone once she finds out who exactly the Alpha of the pack is.
Knox is at once shocked, frustrated, and elated that Angela quite literally came crashing back into his life. While he may have the chance to finally reclaim what they once had, first he needs to understand why she ran in the first place and convince they can have it again. Unfortunately, the cavalry is coming to rescue the rescuer and it will be up to Angela to decide whose team she wants to be on.
While the length may have been a little on the short side for a storyline that had a lot of potential for growth, I still enjoyed the punch it packed with these two headstrong main characters. Even more I enjoyed the forbidden aspect of their relationship. Angela has the attitude of a rogue vampire and the confidence of a day-walker to boot, which makes this female the perfect match for the extremely Alpha werewolf Knox, who like to exert a little control in the bedroom. Needless to say, each can handle whatever the other dishes out – bites and all.
A great read if you're looking to escape into a sexy paranormal romance and finish in one sitting.
