lost her mother to cancer months ago and she is striving to complete
school and work in order to survive. At a book signing, her eyes
meet that of an attractive man across the room. As Holly doesn’t
have time for entanglements, she leaves before he can talk with
her. Since that night, Holly has felt like she is being stared at
and watched. The feeling is somewhat antagonistic and a sense of
danger invades her thoughts. Holly puts it out of her mind and
rushes home. It is during a late shift that she watches the most
strikingly beautiful man she has ever seen walk through the door.
As if he is on a mission, he heads her way and introduces himself.
Almost unable to tear her eyes away from him, she promises to look
for his friend and goes about her business all the while silently
and secretly watching him. When his friend walks in, she
immediately recognizes him from the bookstore. Unashamedly her eyes
meet theirs but before acting upon her attraction, she notices that
two women are now with them and so Holly quietly gives up and heads
home knowing that there is no way those men would ever want her.
Dubois senses Holly is his mate. Having seen her a few weeks
earlier, he can’t get her out of his mind. He also senses something
else about her but can’t put his finger on what it is. Quietly
following her home and shadowing her when he can, he feels immense
joy in her very existence. Telling his friend and roommate about
her, he verbalizes his thoughts to Nate. What happens next
surprises him and he becomes almost warlike in his defenses.
just wanted to check out the woman that Rhett has been mooning
over. He had no plans to interfere at all. Well, fate decided
differently and instead of a relationship with two, the relationship
might be with three. Both vampires must come to terms with sharing
Holly and just when they decide to go after her, they sense her fear
and the fact that she is in tremendous danger. They rush to her
defense, only to learn the one thing Holly’s mother kept hidden from
Holly her entire life. Now Nate, Holly, and Rhett must contend with
a new found love and new found relatives. Relatives that are
anything but ordinary.
United has to be one
of Lauren Dane’s best books ever. I utterly was enthralled from
beginning to end reading about this wonderful family of witches and
their various mates. Speaking of mates, could Rhett and Nate have
been any more luscious? I don’t think so. Perfect for Holly in
every way, I adored the added D/s element in Nate’s character. Both
were sinfully naughty and totally adorable in their love for their
Holly. Their love for her and her love for them made my heart pound
and my palms sweat.
United is the fourth
book of the Witches Knot series and once more we are witness to the
incredible love of this wonderful family of females who love, laugh,
and are loyal to each other. I emphatically recommend this book
