Sam has saved many women and children thru a tunnel of safety from abuse. Her mother was taken from her in a young age by a brutal attack. Now, Sam doesn’t care if she lives or dies. Until that day she meets the vampire, Tucker. She’s never felt that kind of attraction nor has he. Tucker has had it bad. His master, Marta is the worst there is. He’s come to the “kiss” to start over and get away from the torture from her. Having Aaron and Sara in the gang again, it’s so wonderful and funny. They ...more

Sam was an excellent baker and in secret she helped get people away from abusive relationships. Sam has powers which she tries to keep hidden but sometimes she needs to use them. Aaron's mate, Sara, is in the bakery when Sam gets shot and takes her to her home to save her or she will die. Sara knows that she has powers but can't figure out what they are.
Tucker James is a Vampire and from the moment he got a sniff of Sam's scent he knew they were mates and that he had to save her. As soon as Sam

This touches on the hard topics of domestic violence and abuse. Sam is a force to be reckoned with and Tucker has his hands full. Good read

Sam Hunter spends her days as the owner of Sam's Baked Goods and bakes. But when a call comes in, usually at night she helps women, children, and men out of abusive situations. When a husband comes looking for Sam Hunter to confront him about taking his wife, he's angry that a woman is trying to convince him that she is the Sam Hunter and won't tell him where to find his wife.

I found the story of Sam and Tucker to be quite touching.

Sam is a baker who has survived the most brutal attack on her and her mother. Her mother was killed, and she was raped repeatedly, and left for dead. She is also a stop in the underground railroad for abused women and children.

Tucker is a vampire on the run from his maker. He want to join Aaron's Kiss.

When he meets Sam and realizes that she is his mate he decides to leave, because he is afraid what his maker will do to her if she finds

Favorite Line I could have loved you for an eternity

This has to be one of the most heartwarming books in the series! Tucker is broken and Sam has given up! Then they meet each other and in the true Vampire way Tucker wants to protect Sam with everything he has! Sam is an amazing woman who has just had enough she is tired but, Tucker is not NO he will not let her give up. This one was close to my heart and I got to see the Magic counsel in action. THAT WAS AWESOME!!

I liked this story. Thou wished Tucker was given more credit, he was just as hurt as Sam. But this 'end justifies the means' that is becoming more apart of these stories is getting old. Sometimes people have a right to be left alone or at least treated better as you get to know them. Do these people have to over power and/or kidnap everyone they meet?

This book and the entire Aaron's Kiss Series has fascinating characters, excitement, action, and romance. They are all easy to follow and flow very nicely. As is every book this author writes. I love how each character has a detailed background and makes in an appearance in other books through out the series. Must read!

and their children and The alpha
leader was all in this book ..who
doesn't love dunncan i hope he a story
thanks Kathi for such a great read
I loved all the books in the Aaron's Kiss series so far until this one. Sam was just to angry at everyone all the time. I understand she has had a hard life, but her bad attitude made her to hard for me to like and relate to. It was just overkill in the angst department.

You can tell the editing and grammar has really picked up on the publisher's part.

Really liked the story, am annoyed that Tucker's backstory of an abused person is ignored in favor of Sam's. Liked that the female on male domestic abuse is mentioned and taken a serious matter.
