Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Katie Reus, the first story in her Darkness series.
Years ago he ended things between them to protect her...
As leader of one of the fiercest werewolf packs in the south, Finn Stavros is in full battle mode 24/7. He has no choice - he's one of the few beings strong enough to fight the Akkadian demons, whose mysterious escape from hell threatens the entire world. With the battle turning bloodier by the second, Finn is ready for anything...until his vampire long lost love shows up on his doorstep in desperate need of his help, sending his heart into a tailspin. He agrees to help her, unaware that she carries a shocking secret that will turn his life upside down.
This time, he's not letting her go...
Vampire Lyra Marius curses the day she met Finn. The ruthless werewolf promised to love her forever, but he rejected her instead - before she could share her life altering news. Pregnant, kicked out of her coven, and cast aside by the love of her life, Lyra struggled to raise their rare shifter-vampire daughter Vega alone among humans. When the 16-year-old is kidnapped and used to fulfill a frightening prophecy, Lyra swallows her pride and turns to Finn for help. But how long can she fight her feelings for him and keep him from guessing the truth about who Vega really is? As they race against the clock to save their daughter, they must defeat the lethal threat imposed by demons infiltrating the human world and a hell gate that could not only reveal their existence to mankind, but destroy the world in the process.

Short Story - Big Impact!

This story was just five minutes shy of five hours, but was well written, flowed naturally, and had a big impact. It contained everything I look for in a great PNR ~ sexy hero/heroin, steamy romance, action, suspense, great plot, and a happy ending.

The two main characters were great. Finn is my ideal alpha caring, protective, and slightly dominate while Lyra was a strong heroin who would turn over the city looking for her daughter.

The narration was great. Jeffrey is one of the few narrators who can pull off narrating all different types of genres.

This was an awesome five star story made even sweeter by buying the kindle version, and adding whispesync. Who doesn't love getting the best bang for their buck.

Minor Spoiler

This was a wonderful read with lots of action/romance and interactions with other characters which I love.

I can not tell you how wonderful it was to know these 2 were not with anyone else during their time apart. So many romances are ruined by either the Hero or Heroine with someone else while being in love with each other, even if they aren't technically together or if they are separated for some reason for awhile. The fact neither Lyra nor Finn slept with anyone else and stayed true to one another for 17 years is beautiful!
