A Daring Rescue

Emma Paulsen is a geneticist driven by science. But she's also a psychic, so when a dark, good-hearted vampire frees her from the clutches of the evil Kurjans, she realizes he must be the man who's been haunting her dreams. But with a virus threatening vampires' mates, Emma may discover a whole new meaning of "lovesick"...

A Deadly Decision

As King of the Realm, Dage Kayrs has learned to practice diplomacy. Still, it's taken three hundred years to find his mate, so he'll stop at nothing to protect her—even if it means turning his back on his own kind...

My Review

While I loved the first in the series, this one really just seemed to repeat a ton of stuff. I get that Emma and Cara are sisters and are bound to have similar personalities. But with them both being so headstrong and against the mating in the beginning it just seemed repetitious to me.
This book in the series revolves around Emma and Dage. Emma is a scientist and Cara's older sister, while Dage is the King of the Realm and Talen's brother. Of course, Emma has visions, and while she has been seeing Dage's past for 15 years, she never had visions of them together, except in the last few years when she saw what she believed was her death. So while she is falling for him, she is determined not to get attached and that she will leave once she figures out a way to save Cara from the virus that is turning her back into a human.
We meet the elusive brother Kane, who is also a scientist and learn more about the virus that the Kurjans, the bad guys, have developed to steal mates. Cara, Katie, and the Prophet Lily have all been infected with the virus while at the Realm symposium. Most of the book is based around finding a cure for the virus and saving everyone, including Cara's unborn child. There are a few fight scenes, and even more sex scenes than the first book. The ending was a little rushed for my liking, but I loved that Conn got to have a little chat with his mate, and really can't wait to read more about all the other brothers!
