I got this book from my library!

Book Synopsis from Goodreads:

Moira Dunne is a witch – the quantum physics kind. Time and space are her playthings. Which might explain why her one-night stand from a hundred years ago has turned up to “claim” her – and request her family’s assistance with the war he’s brewing. But the more she learns about Connlan Kayrs, the more she comes to think this is normal behaviour for him…When Conn and Moira tumbled on the moonlit grass, Conn hadn’t meant to mark her as his mate for all time. She was only twenty! But it wasn’t easy to wait for her. It was even harder to forget her. So when he finally returns for his wicked-hot witch, he’s ready to let the sparks fly. Even if he burns up in flames..

I enjoy this series, but think it is time for a break.  This one was more of a struggle to stay interested in.  I’m not sure why, but my mind kept wandering while I was reading.  I’m going to try and read a couple of books in a different genre before I come back to this series or another paranormal.  This book is a little different from the others, Conn and Moira are already mated and Moira is not human but a powerful witch.  The vampires are still at war and it is heating up.  Demons are becoming involved and all the different fractions/species of the realm are experiencing in fighting and threatening to break apart from one another.  So this should have be a sit on the edge of your seat thrilling read, but it wasn’t… or at least not for me.

I still liked the book, but it just didn’t live up to the ones before it.  It felt tamer and a bit more bogged down with details of how everything worked.  While some of it was interesting I felt at times it affected the pace of the story.  Also some of the excitement was missing from Conn and Moira’s relationship, perhaps because they were already an establish couple.  They already knew a lot about each other.  We missed out a bit on the excitement of a new relationship, we missed out on the honeymoon stage with them.

I did like how Conn seemed to be much more open minded about letting Moira do things for herself and lead her life as an enforcer even though it put her in danger.  Granted he is going to be right there by her side, but he seems to see, more than his brothers, that she can take care of herself.  He seemed to respect her abilities more than the other males did their mates in this world.  Of course she is a powerful witch that can wield an energy bolt at his ass if he gets to neanderthalic on her.

As with the other books I really enjoyed Jamie’s scenes.  Many of them take place in a dream world and I can’t wait to meet her mysterious Zane.  Janie is only 5 at this point in the story, and to me seems way to mature for her young age.  We are also going to have to wait a long time to get to this triangle between her, Zane and Kalin.  That book I am really looking forward to.

Well as I already said,  I enjoyed the book, and plan to eventually continue the series.  Maybe I will request the books in the end of May or early June.
