He walked away once; he won't do it again.
Wolf shifter Aldric Kazan is no stranger to pain. Since the loss of his mate a century ago, he won't allow himself to fall for someone again—not even the feisty female who stirs things in him that he thought were gone long ago. But as a supernatural investigator, he's forced to team up with the same woman he vowed to stay away from.
She let him in once; she refuses to do it again.
Natalia Cordona refuses to back down from any challenge—even if it means joining forces with Aldric, the sexy and brooding man who won't get too close. Locating missing vampires before a volatile war breaks out seems nearly impossible as the duo struggle with their explosive and undeniable attraction. Now it's up to Natalia and Aldric to trust each other to stop an all-out war from breaking out that would destroy the harmony they've all worked so hard for.
Length: 60,000 wordsAuthor note: Though part of the Moon Shifter series, this book can be read as a stand-alone.

I am a huge fan of Katie Reus’ Red Stone Security series and am I really starting to love her PNR stuff too. Dark Protector combines fated mates, murder, and a few adorable cubs!

Natalia and Aldric met previously and really felt something for each other. But, he is dealing with centuries of guilt and abandons Natalia. Just when she has decided to move on, he reappears and is determined to win her back.

The murder/kidnapping mystery of the story was interesting and I totally didn’t guess who the bad guy was until much closer to the end. The build up of sexual tension between Natalia and Aldric was palpable and very well written. Seriously, they were about to set my kindle on fire and they hadn’t even done more than kiss!

If you enjoy fated mates, mysteries to solve, and a well written, quick read, Dark Protector is a great pick! Aldric has baggage so he gives you the tortured hero vibe, and Natalia is tough and spunky and impossible not to love!
