Guardian of Darkness by Katie Reus
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a really great read that had me on the edge of my seat the entire way through! There was elements of paranormal romance, fated mates, destiny, and even dragons! While I haven't read this entire series from book 1 to book 7 (this one), I don't think you really need to be familiar with the world to be able to dive in here.
Gabriel is trying to do the right thing. He saw Vega getting killed in a vision of his future and he is determined to do everything in his power to make sure it never comes to pass. Unfortunately, he hasn't told anyone about this and has instead been fighting his undeniable attraction to Vega for quite some time. What she saw as his inability to be around her was actually him trying to be noble. It all ends up blowing up in his face when she takes a dangerous job in his old territory.
Vega has worked pretty hard to get out of the shadow of her parents. In a further bid to be independent and strong, she accepts a shadowy job from a band of spies. While lying or telling half truths to those around her, she finds herself in a unique situation of needing Gabriel's help. These two were so entertaining to watch - both fighting their attraction for different reasons but both catastrophically failing in the end. There is a solid HEA, so no worries from that point, but you can see the setup for many future installments, especially in the dragon-related world.
