Taking Nicole is Book 4 in Krystal Shannans Vegas Mates series.
Nicole Demakis has been kidnapped and on her way back to Greece as per her grandparents orders. The kidnapper is a council agent who happens to be her mate but is refusing to claim her and seems stubborn to follow through with his orders. Can she convince him to work with her and give their future a chance or will the council take everything away from her before she even has a chance?
Aaron Katsaros was ordered to deliver Nicole to her grandparents, the Antipas royal wolves. It should've been an easy task. But this infuriating woman, this wolf, his mate...is not something he anticipate. With his sister's life hanging in the balance, he refuses to allow his passion to cost him the only family he has left, but she is wearing down his resolve and drives his arousal to the point of pain. Can he find a way to save his mate, at no cost to his sister or will he be forced to watch another claim the woman he loves?
I was looking forward to this instalment for many reasons. One being that it is not often my name appears as the headlining and main character of a book, so that was exciting but also because "s@$t is getting real" in the world of the Council and the Royal Families. And especially with the Demakis sisters. We take a deeper look into the Royal Society and its traditions that are hinted at in book 1. And also because this one continues on from the semi cliffhanger from book 3 and I couldn't wait to get stuck into it.
This book is different to the others because it introduces another aspect into the fated mates pairing. We explore loyalties that are already set and we see what happens when the loyalties are tested by being introduced to your enemy that you are fated to, but has been blackmailed into being a mercenary for the family you don't want anything to do with. The poor things try so hard to fight the pull of the mate bond for different reasons and only having it become stronger. I felt so sorry for them both.
This is a very worthwhile and fulfilling instalment that takes us on a very emotional journey from beginning to end, dipping through tradition, obligation, rebellion, sacrifice, and fate.
