Blurb: Shigure finally has a home and friends who love him, and even a brother he’s slowly building a relationship with after years of estrangement. He thinks his life is settling down, and then he discovers he’s a vampire’s mate. His focus changes completely when he offers his mentor’s brother, Kyros, his blood and feels their connection. Loving others has always ended badly for Shigure, so he’s afraid to believe the fates are truly blessing him with so many good things all at once.
Kyros wants to curse himself for not seeing that his mate was right under his nose for almost a year. But now that he’s found him, he’s going to do everything he can to show the timid and reluctant young man how beautiful every aspect of love can be. Just as Shigure starts to open up emotionally and yield physically, a summons from the king separates them. Now they have to trust that the gods didn’t give them a brief glimpse of happiness only to separate them forever.

Review: This is an awesome story. One that I think you will not only love, but won’t be able to wait for the next story in this series. Marie always gives you a story that you can sink your teeth into. Wonderful characters that you will fall in love with and want to cheer on. I must admit that it was a bit hard to figure out but once you get into reading, it you won’t be able to put it down.
Kyros comes home to his brother’s place not expecting to get the surprise of his life. He has known Shigure for over a year, but had never taken blood from him. However, on his way there he had been attacked by a demon. Once he takes Shigure’s blood, he realizes that this sweet young man was his mate. There are a lot of surprises coming but he knows that together they can overcome a lot of them.
Shigure has been hurt in the past not in the way one would think though. He has been with women but was still a virgin in certain ways. He had never been with a man before, never actually thought about it either. However once Kyros tells him that he is his mate, things start to change. Kyros is a vampire and Shigure was a tiger shifter. Tiger shifters were very rare. He knew that his brother was mated but never really thought that he would be too.
I really loved this story. I love the way the characters act towards each other. It shows you that this series is going to be an amazing one. If you love paranormal stories then you should check this one out. It shows how they can overcome all differences and turn them in to gifts. I love how Kyros shows Shigure the love they can have. I can’t wait to read book two.
