Author: Hazel Gower
Series Connection: Armageddon Mates
Genre: Shapeshifter Romance, Erotic Romance
Publisher: Beachwalk Press, Inc.

In order to save his mate's life, Arden has no choice but to bite the woman he has never met and attach himself to her for the rest of his life. Unfortunately with all choice being taken away from her Remy runs as fast as she can to get away from him.
Remy had always intended to return to Arden and her friends, she just needed some time to adjust to the idea that she would be trapped in the world with the werewolves and their fight with the demon. Just as she is deciding to return home, she runs into demon trouble of her own. Going back home on her own is no longer an option.
Once back into the fold of her friends and her mate, she must convince everyone she has no plans to run again and get back in every one's good graces. Surprisingly it is Arden to understands Remy from the start and Remy can't help but fall for her sexy mate.
I loved both Arden and Remy. Despite how possessive Arden is because he worries that he will lose Remy again, she is perfect for him because she won't let him get away with anything. She's strong, sassy and blunt, just what a werewolf fighter needs to accept his life.
While I liked the continuation to the Armageddon Mates story line, and the romance between Arden and Remy, I thought the story was a little disjointed and not up to par with the previous installments to the series, but it kept me interested and waiting to see who comes next in the series.
Can you run from fate, or is destiny's pull too strong?
Remy, a young woman with the ability to harness fire, finds herself helping a group of werewolf shifters and other paranormal beings in a battle against demons who want to take over the world. When she is badly injured and on the brink of death, Arden, a werewolf shifter, bites her, giving her supernatural healing abilities. The last thing she expected was for it to also mark her as his mate. With her choices for her life slowly disappearing as it becomes clear what being with Arden will entail, Remy flees.
Arden is devastated when his mate runs from him. Hope for his future disappears and his wolf takes over, turning him into a feral mess.
Remy soon realizes she's made the biggest mistake of her life. Returning to the shifters and a changed Arden, Remy has to not only gain their forgiveness but also build their trust in her while helping Arden overcome his feral nature.
Will Remy be strong enough to be the mate Arden needs or will she let the fire she controls consume her and run again, this time never looking back?
