Vampire Awakenings, Book 2
Determined not to live her parents’ fate as a mated vampire, Isabelle locks herself away from society.
Despite her resolve to avoid anyone outside her family, her world is rocked when Stefan arrives.
The powerful, stunning vampire is everything she never wanted.
Stefan isn't expecting to walk into a nest full of vampires, but he’s immediately drawn to the vibrant, defiant, and willful Isabelle who goes out of her way to avoid him.
No matter how hard she tries to fight it, Isabelle can’t deny the pull she feels toward Stefan. Just as she starts to let down her guard, Stefan’s lethal past catches up to him and threatens to destroy the life Isabelle worked so hard to protect.
Will Isabelle and Stefan overcome their differences in time to face the looming danger, or will they lose each other when the past collides with the present?
I fell in love with Sera and Liam in Awakened and was excited to see that their story is continuing through the lives of their grown children. Destined follows the first of their children to find their mate. As with Sera and Liam's story and courtship, nothing is easy and there are unexpected twists interspersed between steamy love scenes. Overall a very enjoyable, page-turning book.
Before I had gotten to page 20 I was hooked. I liked the first book but love the second one. The family closeness, the fun, laughter, fussing, and love. All of it brought back such wonderful memories of growing up in a large loving family with parents that had a love unlike any others had seen. I would like a kidnapping and rescue that takes at least a couple of chapters instead of the fear of one and rescue in only a couple pages. Now I'm going for the next book. Don't know when I'll get to sleep.
