A powerless supernatural mafia princess. A bodyguard hellbent on revenge. And a love that might cost them both everything…
Elspeth Lennox knows dreams are foolish–including the dream to marry for love. Born without elemental power, she’s considered worthless except in the promise that she could produce a rare and superiorly gifted child free from the disease that is slowly killing her brother and so many other Natura.
In exchange for a cure, she agrees to marry and join her bloodline with that of the Natura’s most powerful Russian family–a king very few have ever seen in person.
The last thing the Lennox family needs is another powerful alliance. Fearing retaliation from other Natura families, Elspeth’s grandfather assigns her his most powerful bodyguard to make sure she survives to see her wedding day.
Fire elemental Aleron Foussé has long dreamed of revenge for his father’s murder. Protecting Elspeth will give him the cover he needs to finally achieve that goal. Elspeth’s just a pawn. A distraction he doesn’t need. A dangerous distraction who makes him dream of things he’ll never have. Things he never thought he wanted.
Now he wants it all. He wants her.
But Elspeth holds a secret powerful enough to start a war, and if they’re not careful, their hearts may be the first casualties.

A thrilling paranormal romance! What a terrific start to a new series if you don’t count those fabulous novellas that introduces the hero and heroine of this story. You don’t have to read the Mistake or the Birthday to enjoy this book but I recommend it. Neither did the author recount those stories in this one. Just enough details to get the gist of Aleron and Elspeth’s backstories. Speaking of Aleron and Elspeth. Absolutely stunning characters! You know going in where it’s heading but the journey is fantastic. I loved their build to love. There are elements in this story that may seem familiar but it’s definitely a fresh take on beings protecting humans from themselves and Mother Earth. I loved getting to know these supernatural beings ruled by nature and the four elements, fire, air, water and earth along with their duties and abilities. The first part of the book rocked along as our couple got to know each other and the details of the Natura world unfolded. The good, the bad, the really ugly and the dangerous. It was a little slow around the middle but then the surprise twists kicked in and the danger ramped up. It was an exciting race to the end with on-the-edge-of-your-seat action along with the swoon-worthy romance. Sure, the method of refueling the supernatural’s abilities was a little on the nose but makes for interesting plot elements for future stories as the ending and that fabulous epilogue sets up for the next installment. I thought the sex was a little bland but I like the smoking hot variety of sexy times. That’s not to say these two didn’t have their moments of steam and sizzle cause they did. Their relationship was mostly super sweet and loving. The secondary characters are spectacular with loads of family, friends and enemies for the continuation of the series. I can’t wait for the next installment. Absolutely fantastic! A must read!
