I should have known when he walked into my life that things would never be the same. Hadn't I dreamed of him and the things he'd done before I was born? If only he weren't so fascinating, so beautiful, so much more than any other guy. Maybe then I could walk away.
Mairin Cote is a magnet for weird. Her dreams come true, she can see auras and her mother is in love with an angel. Now the mosters are finding her too. Vampires, demigods and werepanthers have flocked to this small town girl who must find a way to keep her family safe, love the man of her dreams, and navigate the shark-infested waters of Highland Home High School.
Ok it was a cute story - I was a little worried since they threw in so many different supernatural characters, but it worked out pretty well.
The book starts off with Mathias waking from his death. and his beloved Kathryn was at his side, praying for his recovery.
But when Mathias woke up, he didn't know what happened... why his beloved Kathryn lay dead in his arms....
That's where Mairin wakes up.. She has dreams. A lot of dreams. Sometimes they mean something, sometimes they don't.
So who would believe a dream of a vampire taking his lover's life to be something real?? Defiantly now Mairin .
First day of high school. The halls are crowded, everything is the same. That is until Mathias walks to up to Mairin and asks where he could find his classroom.
Marin recognizes him from her dream, but it's not like she could tell anyone, right?
As the day goes on, Mathias seems to be everywhere. And not only is he within Mairin 's eye sight, he's actually ignoring everyone else in order to pay attention to her!
The dreams don't disappear though. She is having more and more dreams about Mathias. Scary dreams, dreams of him drinking blood and killing people. But these were just dreams... right?
When Mathias asked Mairin to the high school football game, She told him she had to ask her mom. So they went to her mom's shop. When Twayna, her mom's partner, saw Mathias, she started to freak out. And all of a sudden Marin's worse fear comes true..
He's a vampire.
But there is something different about Mathias. He doesn't FEEL like a bad guy. And he keeps saying he would never hurt her.
But how can she believe that after all those dreams she's been having??

My first kiss was going to be my last, but it was worth it. His cool lips, his sweet taste, they were my salvation. I would never regret it, no matter what happened.
Mairin Cote thought loving a vampire was hard, but losing him to others of his kind was worse. When the death toll in East Hampton points to a rampaging vampire, the vampires and werepanthers must form an uneasy alliance to stop the destruction. To save the love of her life, Mairin must decide if living life without Mathias is worth risking an eternity with him.
This book starts off about 6 months after the last one..
I was a little confused about Karry and Xavior now a couple. In the last book they shared a look, and that was it.... humm
Anyways - Mairin is still having dreams, only this time it's not of Mathias. But this new Vampire is on a killing spree.
After she wakes up with the victims screams echoing in her head, Mathias is right there to help calm her down.
They tried getting the Werepanters to the site in hopes to catch the Rouge Vamp, but they always show up just a little too late.
When Alfred, Mathais father of this life shows up out of no where,We can't help but think he's responsible..
Alfred and Mathais know that they're the only ones that are able to fix this mess. And that means leaving Mairin behind so she's not in danger.
But of course Mathias wouldn't dream of leaving Mairin. But it's for her own safty.(didn't Edward say the same thing??) Only this time, Mathais is leaving Xavier and the werecats to watch over her (humm) BUT Mathais PROMISES to return (dreamy sigh)
"Promise me. Promise me you will come back."
"I promise, my heart." He said caressing my back and pressing me tightly against him. "How can I not return? You hold my heart in trust. I cannot live without it, without you. You must promise to keep safe for me."
Can I hear an "AWE" :)
The ending was sweet, fast, and emotional.
But something big is headed for Highland Home, and this is just the begining
