Remus Marius, a demon warrior, grew up knowing he had the full love and support of his family. It defined who he was. Discovering his mate, Noah, on a mission to rescue kidnapped vampires, he finds that he will need everything he learned growing up to convince Noah he's worth the love Remus wants to give him.
Noah Dragos always knew he was a huge disappointment to his family. He wasn't a warrior like his father and brothers. He wasn't even a good vampire. Hidden away and ignored by his family, Noah learned not to rely on anyone. When he's kidnapped by demons, he knows no one will care.
Being rescued by Remus and mated to him, Noah has to decide if he's willing to drag his mate into the hell he's lived in his entire life or let Remus find someone more deserving of being a warrior's mate.
Kidnapped, abused and left for dead was exactly what Noah experienced. You would think once he was rescued from the demons he would be safe, but for Noah the demons are nothing compared to facing his family.
Noah is definitely damaged goods and he has every right to be. Even when his life is in turbulence he is still able to appreciate what others to do for him. He may not care for himself but it is clear that he cares for those whom help him. He definitely has a heart of gold, which has room for all of those who care to get to really know him.
Remus is a big strong warrior who turns into a fluffy bunny when his mate is around. I love it! The Marius family has always been known as fierce warriors but who would have thought the huge man would be so compassionate. The immense amount of emotion Remus has for his mate as soon as he sees him is amazing.
The story was full of conflicts which this developing couple, as well as the Marius family, faces without flinching, and these serve to show how much they care for one another. This family sticks together no matter what and now that Noah is part of it he gets to see it full force. While all of the main conflicts were wrapped up neatly in this story I did question the conclusiveness of a few minor situations, one being the conflict with the demons that kidnapped Noah to begin with. There was a semblance of a conclusion but I just would have liked to a little more follow up once Noah was found. Because these conflicts were minor in the grand scheme of the story the plot was still a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Plus the conflict between Noah and his father really trumped everything else.
While the story itself was excellent the story had a few fundamental issues. For example a missing word in a few sentences. Also on a few occasions characters were referred to with the wrong name. It did disrupt the flow of the story because I would have to figure out inaccuracies so that I could understand exactly what the author was trying to convey.
I think all-in-all this was a really good story with some great notable characters. Not only will the main characters remain with me for a while but so will the supporting cast, which I know I will see much more of in the future.
