Dante Notte has heard it said that love hurts. He just wasn’t expecting it to run him over in an RV. Still, a punctured lung and broken ribs are nothing compared to the full body shock he feels whenever he’s near the vehicle’s driver, Mary Winslow. He needs to keep her safe from their pursuers while he rescues his brother. Most challenging of all, he needs to claim this smart, stubborn woman as his life mate.
The naked, injured, insanely gorgeous younger man who clambered into her RV insists they belong together. If Mary wasn’t feeling their incredible connection in every inch of her being, she wouldn’t believe it. But now that the men who took Dante’s twin are after her too, trusting her gut means risking her life for an Immortal who’s the very definition of a perfect stranger.
I had a difficult time getting into this book to start with. I am not accustomed to reading about a 62 year old woman with a 25 looking man, so it was hard to keep going until Mary went through the change. However I really did like the story. I wished we had more action scenes like the other books.
Widowed Mary Winslow doesn't know what to think when her RV hits something, but when she stopped to check, she didn't see anything. What she didn't see was wounded Dante , naked and bleeding, slipping into the RV and hiding in the bedroom. Dante had escaped kidnappers and accidently ran into the RV as Mary was traveling. When Mary finds him, she is at a loss as to how he crawled into the RV when he had to have been badly wounded.
Using mind control, he takes the blood he needs from a doctor and EMTs at a truck stop that Mary gets help from. But he let Mary know he was in danger and she continued to allow him to travel with her. She is drawn to Dante and doesn't know why, but is upset with herself because she is so much older than he is.
I have been reading this series for many years now, and even so I enjoy each book very much. They are light and fun instead of dark and dangerous. The stories make you smile and it is interesting to see where life mates in previous books are at now. There is always an element of mystery to the story, such as this one where Dante is driven to find his kidnappers because they still have his twin brother. Ms Sands is always worth the read, no matter what she writes and I am thankful to have had her stories in my life for many years.
