Seven sisters are entwined in a legacy larger than ever expected. One by one, they’ll find their mates from the Valendite Breed, a group of near-immortal men, and secure their place in history. The trouble now is Paige has too much pride to go down easily. When confronted by her mate, she convinces him to wait.
Donovan agrees to Paige’s plan until things around him start to go wrong. He’s losing his concentration, making mistakes on critical missions for the Terrorist Elimination Unit (TEU), and now he’s assigned as Paige’s bodyguard. Donovan’s only weakness is his need for a mate to carry on the Breed. Now that he’s found Paige, the time has come for him to claim his mate. Taking Paige in hand might be the only choice he has as forces continue to mount against the Breed. Their Pronouncement will need to be sooner rather than later.

I worried about reviewing the fourth book of a series I'd never read, but I believe the author did a commendable job providing connections to her previous work to ground me. While Vanished Pride uses a trope I often cringe at (destined to mate), I found myself curious to see it handled here. Donovan and Paige struck a deal (in the previous book, I'm guessing) that gave her space to chase her dreams while he'd wait. A pesky ticking bomb called genetics lays him low, the instability enough to affect everyone around him. I began to wonder how Paige could resist a man like Donovan to be a world-class pastry chef. Eh? Say What? You wanna make muffins when there's a McHottie Meal waiting for you? The pacing was a bit slow at first, but when we finally get some clear sexy fun times going, you sort of forget what took so long.
