Okay, Darien and Cassie.
Kind of a yawn on this one for me. Several gramatical/usage/mechanical errors, a slightly confusing story line -- or one with several loose ends (for ex., brother of the deceased ex-girlfriend -- where did he come from, where did he go?). There is an over-the-top villain with only minimal motivation (better than King Brunes in book 1, though). Further, Cassie character seeks to "help" Darien by giving him BJs in his sleep. I mean, I'm all for being helpful, but Mother The

My favorite of the Kategan series, this book has a feisty heroine and a damaged hero you can't help but want to hug. Vampire Cassandra has had a crappy life growing up as an orphan with an abusive guardian. She's running away when she ends up on lykaen Darien's land. He's in mourning for a woman he loved, and has cut himself off from his family. His first reaction to Cassie is wanting her to leave, but he can't resist a woman who needs help and lets her stay. She gets under his skin, he fascinat ...more

This Series is absolutely Yummy!!!
An erotic paranormal novella done right. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Darien Kategan


My heart went out to Darien Kategan. He was a man in mourning when he found Cassandra, wounded and passed out in the woods near his cabin. I loved the damsel in distress in need of an alpha to save her from the big bad vampire plot. These two were so hot together and Eternal Temptation was much improved over book 3 of this series.

There are only two more books left and I look forward
The only reason Eternal Temptation got a 3 was that this is Darien's book. I was happy that I finally got to read it but disappointed that I just couldn't get to like Cassie.

What I don't get was that she's abused and all yet on the second chapter she's thinking sex and whatever. Seriously I expected Cassie's character to be a little bit reserved and shy but no. Whereas for Darien (I adore him) he's totally hot and yes alpha and yes just not too overdone for Cassie though. But don't fault the au

I managed to get through the first three books, because they were at least kind of entertaining (if you managed to overlook all the grammatical and plot errors as well as the just abominable writing style).
But this is too much. Cassies POV kills me, I cannot stand her. The whole story until now (40%) is horrible and unrealistic.
I... can’t take it anymore. I really tried. But, no, Kategan Alphas - who, by the way, NEVER do anything close to shift into wolfs or any other creatures - I am done with

Better and better and better. This series is awesome! This story was great. I love Dmetri and Christine. Their chemistry is phenomenal. I seriously felt like I could feel the heat coming off the pages. And I loved reading about what was going on with the rest of the group and they're lives and how they are continuing. There was even one point that I cried. Great, GREAT book. ...more

The other Kategan brother who chooses to live as a recluse has his solitude interrupted by an unexpected guest. This extremely annoys him because he is not done living in misery and wallowing in the guilt of losing his love. The guest finds a way to get up under his skin and awaken emotions he hasn’t felt in a long time. Now whether or not he responds to those emotions is anyone’s guess.
After reading the first three books in the series, honestly this one didn’t excite me as much. It was still a

Cassie yearns to help a brooding stranger heal

Darien discovers an injured, unconscious woman in the forest. He shelters her briefly, hoping she’ll mend enough he can get her in to town, but he isn’t prepared for her to wake up and decide he is the one who needs help healing.

I really enjoyed Cassie being concerned about more than just herself. Where she could have been a self centered character, she was a minx with a good heart.

I really didn't like this one. Darien's dark brooding character just didn't fit and Cassie just came out of the blue. This story didn't make alot of sense or maybe each of their past "secrets" wasn't developed sufficiently and I got bored quickly. I hope the next one is as exciting as the first three. ...more

The world building is practically non-existent, the story lines aren't developed, and the characters' minds change faster than a windvane in a twister. It's basically porn with plot. Also, sexually assaulting someone in their sleep? Seriously what the everloving hell? ...more

Darien Kategan is running away from his past, something he blames himself for but really wasn't his fault. He made himself believe that he had found his mate and decided to take her unborn baby and give it his name and claim it as his. Only thing is she decides to go back to her ex and they get in a fight and when he gets home she is dead. He takes himself away from his family and decides to be by himself. All that changes when he sees a woman passed out in his woods and takes her into his cabin ...more

What a disappointing read. I was hoping for so much more for Damien. The story was rather boring, and there were so many plot holes and information not provided it was hard for me to finish. The story was told from mostly Cassie's POV, which means we have no idea about what is going on in Damien's head for much of the book. It was annoying. There was absolutely no spark between the two characters, so the insta-love felt all wrong. Cassie's personality seemed forced as well. She is a battered wom ...more

Great!! I loved Darien and Cassie's story. It was so wonderful to see Darien finally heal and find happiness again. I loved Cassie's character. She was bold, funny, and daring despite being broken herself. I admired her bravery when it came to trying to help heal Darien. There were a few times I wanted to hit the man over the head myself, but he finally got it together as a Kategan should. As each story continue to gets better as the series progresses, I'm becoming more anxious for the next one. ...more

Sexy wolf guy and feisty vampire girl, what's not to love. I've read all the books in this series, and it's hard to choose but I think this may be my favourite of this series. It has a bit more action and suspense. Darien is gorgeous and I loved Cassie's innocent yet feisty take what she wants attitude.

Some werewolf fans may be disappointed that these guys don't shift, they simply have enhanced sense, but it didn't bother me. A few issues with the writing but ignorable. This book has hot sex sce

Awwww Darien is shoooo shweeet! and soo cute :)

This is a short, vampire/lykaen romance. Its about giving love, life and fate a second chance though you owe them nothing. its about trust and conquering your fears because somethings are just so much more important.

It was a nice read, makes you feel all good inside (gives you a happy buzz :p )
the only problem was. . . Twilight -_- . . . Seriously Woman?! whats the matter with you? :3

anyhoo! it was good :D

T.A. is getting better. I liked the ending enough that I decided that even though I spent more than half the book being annoyed with Cassie that I like the whole book. She still has some distracting proofreading errors but her story telling is better. I'm starting to wish these stories were longer and she would explain more. ...more

I found it a struggle to read this book. The writing was choppy, I never really engaged with the two main characters although I felt some empathy for them, and I never felt the spark between them that resulted in their supposedly strong attraction to one another. Disappointing, because I had enjoyed the previous book in the series.

Cassie is on the run from her fiance,Daniel & collapses on Dariens property. Darien is still beating himself up about Dana & tries to push Cassie away...only to change his mind as Cassie tries to get to know him. Darien says some shitty things that really tests Cassies patience which send her back to Daniel!
