But then, there's one problem: he can't walk away. He won't. If only she can forgive him for his greatest mistake…

The second book in the Elemental Sisters series keeps the readers on the edge of their seat.

A coveted possession for the Mallums Immortalis, the Elemental Jocelyn is stuck between the mortal and immortal worlds, yet not quite either. Meeting her mate will trigger her powers, but does she really want a mate? Landon is the Alpha werewolf and he has forsaken his intended mate for months because she can never grant him a much-needed-heir for his nearly extinct pack. When an attempt is made on Jocelyn's life, he realizes his destiny lies with her, but can they overcome the prejudices of his kind and their enemies in time to find what the future holds?

This fast-paced plot keeps the adrenalin pumping with action, suspense, romance and emotional drama. The author describes every scene with vivid imagery and details that make the reader feel as if they are part of the story. The compelling characters and the wonderful story capture the imagination and keep the reader engaged to the very end.

The chemistry between Jocelyn and Landon explodes from the pages and the sex scenes are red-hot and steamy, but the romance is rocky at best as the two clash at every turn and emotional turmoil must be overcome. The author manages to make the characters seem real as if the reader knows them personally by making it easy to understand where they are coming from.

The author has created a very mesmerizing world that keeps readers guessing what's coming next, interesting plot twists and surprises that add spice and bewitching characters that make the readers want to know more.

I was very captivated by Landon and Jocelyn's story, and I can't wait to read more books in the series to find out more about Jenna and Jocelyn's sisters and what happens in the war with the Mallums.
