Paranormal Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance
One night, driving on an abandoned road in rural Vermont, Brand Kade's deepest instincts stir when he finds a beautiful silver-eyed female lying naked in the snow.
Like Brand, Eva is a Kaspian – an immortal shape-shifting blood tiger. And like Brand, Eva is haunted by her past. When it becomes apparent that the ruthless woman who kidnapped and tortured Eva wants her back, Brand knows he must protect her.
Eva may be immortal, but in her short life she's learned that forever doesn't last – especially when it comes to those she loves. All Eva has left is her sister, who she must return to. But for once, Eva hesitates: for she is not certain she can leave so easily. Not when it is Brand she is leaving behind.
And Brand has a secret of his own he is keeping from Eva, a secret that draws on all his memories of the past: Eva is his amati. Eva is Brand's "forever."
When their desire explodes, neither Brand nor Eva are prepared for passions that drive them beyond all the wildest expectations of the immortal heart.

MEMORY OF AN IMMORTAL HEART is an enjoyable read.
Brand Kade is an immortal Kaspian shapeshifter, blood tiger from the Stronghold Gens. He can heal and take away bad memories.
An Amati is a love bond for life. When he took away the horrible memories of his brother's Amati to keep him from killing himself when she died, the memories instead rend Brand's soul, making him yearn for his own Amati and fear her, too. He suffers and feels guilty for his brother's pain.
One night he discovers a naked woman in a snow bank with a bloodstained Sakai standing over her and written in her blood the message, "Take her and run." Brand was tracking Sakai with his cousin Joshua and recognizes the bloodsucking Sakai are hot on their trail so they grab Eva Turner, a blood tiger too, and run.
When Brand touches her, he knows she is his Amati. He is scared to death of losing her but won't tell her anything. She recovers and becomes his lover but is held back by his secrecy. She doesn't trust him.
Brand is a long-suffering powerful male with too much ego and guilt. Eva is a long-suffering female that blames herself for everything, even stuff beyond her control. They clearly love each other but can't seem to understand each other.
I loved the bruised egos of these people. The characters were heartwarming creatures that wormed their way into your good graces. I found myself upset with their stubbornness to not let go of their preconceived ideas. This was a book with a different kind of fantasy. I really enjoyed the writing.
There were some words out of place and a few errors but it was a really interesting concept once I familiarized myself enough with this type of tale. It was all a new type of fantasy for me.
I gave it four stars out of five for a very interesting read. I realize it is a series and look forward to more of this author's talented imagination. She needs to re-edit a little for a perfect and captivating read.
