Cara Paulsen does not give up easily. A scientist and a single mother, she's used to fighting for what she wants, keeping a cool head, and doing whatever it takes to protect her daughter Janie. But "whatever it takes" has never before included a shotgun wedding to a dangerous-looking stranger with an attitude problem. . .

Or Else. Sure, the mysterious Talen says that he's there to protect Cara and Janie. He also says that he's a three-hundred-year-old vampire. Of course, the way he touches her, Cara might actually believe he's had that long to practice...

My Thoughts:

This book had just about the right amount of action, sex and anticipation. I kept thinking to myself "OMG What's next?" I wanted to finish the book but at the same time I didn't want it to finish. I know, I know I'm kinda weird. But I know a few other readers can relate when they read this book. If only I can be Cara for one night, I'll do it in a heartbeat. Just so I can feel that body that Rebecca described so vividly. Yumm-O!!

So in "Fated" you have Talen, a vampire so sexy that can melt the panties off you. And basically that's what he does to Cara just by a single touch. But I'm getting ahead of myself here. So you have Talen a Three Hundred year old vampire who abruptly entered Cara's life and determined to make her his wife. He promised to protect her and her four year old daughter Janie. But Cara isn't one to take orders from anyone. Not even a sexy and strong vampire like Talen. So basically he's in for a rough road with her. He plans to convince her that they belong together, Married. And it's going to happen AND she's going to accept it one way or the other.

Cara is a smart single mom who has been through enough in her life to know that she doesn't want no man trying to tell her what to do. Even one as sexy and hot like Talen. She's been independent long enough and is not willing to give up her freedom. But little does she know that there's danger lurking around her and her daughter. Talen happens to be the one that knows how to protect her and Janie. In fact, even little Janie knows they belong together.

Though there's danger at every other corner, Cara never felt more safe. Running around with Talen, his brothers and their comrades, she finally felt like she was part of a family. A family that would do anything to keep her and Janie safe. No matter what it costs them.

I really really loved this book. I loved the way Talen expressed his desire for Cara. Absolutely loved the way he pulled her hair back and just.....And he sincerely loved Janie. She was his daughter and Janie knew it. They were a family and he waited long enough for them. All Cara has to do now is accept it.

Definitely a 5 out of 5 stars and a Definite Good Choice for Reading. A Must Buy! Must Read! Here's a link below for options to buy.
