Jenna Jenson's spent her life wondering why she's different. The only people who may help her find out have been lost to her since their mother's death. When she's attacked by a man whose supernatural abilities supersede her own, she's rescued by the devastatingly handsome demon king, Lucas Thaler. While she's inexplicably drawn to him, powers she never knew she possessed are unleashed, leading her to discover she's part of a new breed of immortals who can either save or destroy life.

After a war in his demon plane and home, Lucas has dedicated his life to battling Malum Inmortalis, rogue immortals whose sole purpose is to rule immortals and mortals alike. As fate would have it, the hunt for these vile creatures leads him to her. Instantly, he recognizes her. She's the woman he's been waiting for, for centuries, the woman he's been dreaming of for centuries—his fated mate.

The first book in the Elemental Sisters series is an intriguing and wonderful paranormal world.

A reporter for New York News newspaper, Jenna Jensen is investigating seven deaths and three disappearances when she is attacked by a man whose supernatural abilities supersede her own abnormal abilities. She was rescued by the Demon King Lucas, who has been fighting the Malum Immortalis, evil immortals, for centuries. In process, she discovered powers she never knew she possessed. Lucas must protect Jenna at all costs for she is a new breed of immortal that the prophecies say can change the fate of the war and she is even more precious to him for she is his mate.

This steady to fast paced and smooth flowing plot has it all--suspense, action, romance, betrayals, sex, and all manner of supernaturals that make it a very entertaining read. The author uses vivid descriptions and intense details to capture the imagination and enchanting characters with strong charismatic personalities that grab the reader's attention and doesn't let go.

The attraction between Jenna and Lucas radiates from every page, but the relationship is fraught with hardships from several directions. Lucas is a strong character but has a few issues, and Jenna has her world turned upside down while trying to figure out the mating business. The reader can't help but be moved by their passion and loyalty.

The classic good vs. evil plot is put to good use in the making of this fantastic story in this enthralling world and I was totally caught up from the very beginning. There are surprises that keep you guessing, action to keep you on your toes and great characters that I want to know more about. I also really enjoyed the way the author ended the story for this couple, while at the same time letting the reader know there is more to come.
