Punished for sins not her own, can a mortal claim her vampire mate?

The world of immortals must unite to save both themselves and the mortals they co-exist with from an ancient evil.

For Bede MacTaggert this means trusting in the warrior sent for her sister—a man of mystery, of power, and one who could easily sweep her into a world she's destined to be part of.

Forsaken Heart was provided to me for free in exchange for a review.

'The world of immortals must unite to save both themselves and the mortals they co-exist with from an ancient evil.'

Forsaken Heart caters to an audience who loves their males dominant, their women spunky and their sex hot and plentiful. It's what you'd expect from paranormal romance/erotica, but has a few twists that make it fresh and original and sets it apart from the genre.

The vampires of has one of the most best concepts I'v

The story has potential, but the writing doesn't flow smoothly enough for me. Too bad. I really needed a virgin hero so I wouldn't have to deal with past OW. Ah well. :-(

I‘ve received the book in exchange for a review. The story is very interesting, and I will keep reading the next books to find out the whole story. You will not find all answers in the first book to your questions 😉. It was not always to keep up with the story, from time to time there were some jumps in the storyline. But I really like the two MC Bede and Gawain and their sweet but also hot lovestory.

This book is the first in a four part series and I must say the first one is a really great read! It starts off with Bede and her sister being sold to a slaver. Her father eagerly parts with them for a pouch of gold. Bede calms her sister's fears and thinks of this as an opportunity to get away from their abusive parent. Since the death of her mother, everything has fallen onto Bede's shoulders. She loves her sister more than anything and would willingly die for her. They do not even make it to ...more

Gawain is sent for Bede and her sister, and Bede must trust him to take them to safety. Gawain has never given in to his personal desires, and he lives to serve his royals. Now, he can barely keep his vampire side from drinking Bede dry.

When Bede's sister goes missing, she has to trust Gawain to bring her back. She finds herself still falling for Gawain, even though he shies away from her at almost every opportunity. She can't help herself, and she just hopes that the both of them will be able t

I've always loved vampire stories and movies and basically anything to do with vampires. But this book is about more than just vampires. There are other creatures, witches, goddesses and gross dads. It flips between the perspective of Bede and Gawain.

There is plenty of sex talk as well so it borders on paranormal erotic maybe? Just my thoughts lol but I'm not against finding new books to read that merge genres. I also liked that the action picked up from the beginning of the story. I didn't hav

Forsaken Heart is the first book in the four part series and is an interesting read. The story starts with Bede and her sister being sold by their father for a bag of gold to a slaver. Bede is smart and starts thing of an escape plan. They both get an opportunity to run away. Bede is like a mother to her younger sister and the bond between the two sisters is really strong.

DNF 59% - Promising. I got this free for a review but I’m a bit disappointed. I tried but I couldn’t anymore. The story seems all over the show, it’s a bit too rushed and confusing and I couldn’t keep up.
