What The Blurb Says :
Marcus LaGrange was bone weary. He had been in the beautiful city of New Orleans much longer than he had wanted. But, he was trying to track down a rogue Vampire that was a threat to those he loved...yet wanted nothing more than to go home.
He never expected to be knocked to his knees by the lovely Elizabeth Chase. And, if it wasn’t bad enough that she made his body ache with a need that he hadn’t felt in centuries… she was a mortal! He had absolutely no time for distractions…and this lovely human was just that! And, in the most tempting way – bringing back his past with a vengeance and making him question everything that he had ever believed.
Elizabeth Chase was in New Orleans to do a job. She hadn’t planned on running into the gorgeous Marcus LaGrange at the Inn where she was staying. Men were permanently off of her menu. She only wanted to get done what she had been sent to do, and to go back home to her solitary existence.
So; why then, when the man touched her did her skin tremble and burn with a fire that seared her to her very soul? Why did he cause every damn thing that she had programmed herself to believe and feel to go straight out of the window?
She had baggage - and she definitely wasn’t looking to pick up more.
Can these two fight the attraction that pops and sizzles around them? Or, will they give in to a desire that cannot be ignored?
They both have secrets…and it could spell disaster for everyone that they care about – including each other.
Join the journey to discover if they can find forgiveness and redemption before the evil out there destroys them all.
Will love be enough?
Marcus’ Mortal Embrace…Book 3 of The Supernatural Desire Series.
Join this band of Supernaturals as they find love and danger - yet standing strong as a family.
Recommended for 18 years or older due to adult situations and language.
Marcus is in New Orleans to catch a rogue vampire. Elizabeth is there to help an abused woman run away. When their paths cross, the attraction is instant and scorching hot, but both are carrying secrets, deadly secrets that could kill them both.
OH, Marcus is my new book boyfriend, and since mine is the first live review, I CLAIM HIM!
He is such a tortured soul, and still feels guilty for the deadth of his fiancee 200 years before. He feels he doesn't deserve to be happy. But elizabeth almost jump starts his heart again. And when she reveals what she is doing in NOLA, his reaction is just so beautiful. Elizabeth also fells she doesn't deserve to be happy, and feels she is damamged. But Marcus bring something out of her, that which has long been hidden.
Its not as steamy in the bedroom as Luke's book. What it is, is beautiful. Marcus is tender and sweet towards Liz, and it comes across in all the right places. Its more about the coming together of two tortured souls, and how they make each other feel, that the hot and sweaty that Luke and Katrina get up to. Its the passion between these two characters that comes across.
This is book three in the series, and I would STRONGLY recommend you read the other two first, it will give you a better understanding of what is going on. It will also give you a better feel for the other main characters, Desmond and Abby from book one, and Lucas and Katrina in book two. The main underlaying plot runs through all three books, and is not done yet. Something BIG is going down in the paranormal world, and its gonna need some telling to get it all out. Also, as I was reading I saw two more books, one played out in the sneak peak of the next book, and I'll let you know if the other one plays out in a future book.
As I said in my review for book two, these get better and better and this is better than book two. Darlene is finding her flow, and its showing.
Ah sod, hunnie, 5 full stars!
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.
If Desmond is the cold and calculating brother, and Luke is the hot-headed impetuous one, then Marcus is surely the brooding and guilt-ridden hero that we all love. In his defense, he does have reason. After all, his mother killed his fiancee on the night of their engagement party so don't be too hard on him. He is a very caring person through all that and once you are his friend, then you have a friend for life... or even longer if you too are immortal!
Liz is someone who works with her instincts and she has every reason to. She has survived something that you hope no one ever has to go through but too many seem to have first-hand knowledge. She is stronger than she gives herself credit for.
Their meeting is tumultuous and it doesn't stop. They both fight their feelings - Marcus because he doesn't feel that he deserves to be happy and Liz because she no longer trusts men. Some things are undeniable though and once Liz gets drawn into the reason that Marcus is down in New Orleans in the first place, nothing will stop him from protecting her.
This is an amazing and tender love story that was wonderful to read. I won't go into any spoilers because quite simply, you should read this book and enjoy it yourself. We still have the inter-linking between old characters as well as new ones (loving Brianna and Sebastian by the way) as well as Harper who is turning out to be a spitfire, just like Kat. When you read these books you will feel like you're catching up with family, in all ways that are good.
Loving this series and having withdrawal symptoms now for Harper's story - can't wait for that one! Highly recommended!
