Hey, guys. Dasha here. As the only human in these Bound by Hades books—at the moment, anyway—Reese thought it might be fun for me to chime in on all the supernatural romance going on in these books.
Before all this Shomrei stuff started, I was the last person on the planet to ever believe in the whole love-thing. Without going into my messed up history on that topic (that’s a whole ‘nother book you’ll have to wait for) I would have normally said Hellz to the NO on the whole love thing—especially fated love. And even though Sadie and Yvonne are fated mates for Theo and Justin…it isn’t love at first sight at all.
In book one, my BFF, Sadie, lays Theo flat on his ass. Oh yeah, she can do that being a black belt. And Yvonne, in Marked by Hades, runs away, totally ditching Justin. Then again, she’s totally attracted to him, but if she touches him he’ll turn to dust, so there’s that whole issue…
Makes my head spin sometimes.
I love the idea that there could be someone out there just for me. As the human in these stories, I’m not sure it’ll work that way for me unless there’s a Shomrei that I’ll be marked for. But I’m not counting on it, considering the odds that best friends both get Marked…
Then again, I might get marked for something else… **hint, hint** but you’ll have to see what happens…
At first I was a little jealous of Yvonne. Don’t tell her (hopefully she doesn’t read this), but I secretly hoped I’d be marked for Justin. I mean, he’s all kinds of awesome. Big burly guy who’d stare death in the face for you, but inside he has the heart of a big fuzzy teddy bear.
He might take a while to warm up to an idea—especially this fated Mate stuff—but once he’s on board with something, watch out, he’ll defend it with the wrath of a Shomrei Warrior for sure.
To be cherished like that…
Anyway. I’m starting to warm up to this whole fated Mates thing, and I can only hope a Justin or Theo type guy out there for me.
Only maybe less fanged out and immortal…and maybe about five-ten. I’ve always liked Amber eyes, too and the name—no, I better not spill the beans.
Thanks for hanging out with me today. Happy reading!
Marked By Hades
Tagline: One choice away from eternity…
Blurb: For 911 years, Gatekeeper companion Justin Bradford has denied the possibility of being mated to only one woman. He enjoys them all too much to settle down. So when he feels his mate’s Ahavah mark surface, his first instinct is to ignore it. But when he sees the leather-clad beauty in need of his help that’s easier said than done…
Yvonne wakes up naked on a cold park bench in a small town with no memory of who—or what—she is. All she knows is the gentle man who woke her was turned to dust when she touched him. And now the strange mark that appeared on her shoulder throbs in the presence of the raven-haired man now offering to help her…
As Justin and Yvonne navigate the mystery of her past, their bond grows, but the secrets they discover and the sacrifices that must be made could be enough to rip them apart for eternity.
