After being experimented on by the
Lycarn, Bella has become a killer with a poisonous bite.
She must have blood in order to survive, yet her murderous
bite condemns her through no fault of her own. Now the
Lycarns and the humans want her dead or gone - preferably
Out in the stars Darke, half human and
half Drelconian, along with his mother Harmony, his lover
Ness, and the pilot Pierre search for his father - a full
Drelconian or golden dragon.
Bella is sentenced to exile and can
never return to Earth. Darke meets her aboard their ship,
horrified when she bites and kills a man. Yet he is
strangely attracted to her. She knows that any contact with
others always becomes fatal, but Darke intrigues her. There
is no way they can be together, let alone consummate their
burgeoning feelings for one another as they face danger and
death in the stars.
The universe is filled with magical, mythical beings in this
fifth Accidental Mates tale titled Darke.
Hero Darke and heroine Bella have everything going against
them, yet strive towards love no matter what.. Although the
core love story is easily understood, the other characters’
interlocking lives are sometimes difficult to figure out,
especially considering this is the fifth story. I wasn’t
able to feel Bella and Darke falling in love, plus the
constant POV switch between characters is confusing at
times. Darke is sure to please fans of this
series hoping to look up old friends, but newer readers
might be better off starting with the first story.
