Terrified of becoming mated like her parents, Isabelle has locked herself away in order to avoid their fate. She is content to stay sheltered amongst her family, hidden away as she lives out her days away from the human race, and the world. Despite her determination to remain alone, her world is rocked when a person from her parent’s past arrives at their door, bringing with them the powerful, and stunning vampire Stefan. Though Stefan is not expecting to arrive at a nest full of vampires, he is immediately drawn to the vibrant, often defiant, and willful Isabelle. To his surprise, Isabelle does everything in her power to avoid him, and her desire for him. No matter how hard she tries to fight it though, Isabelle begins to realize that trying to deny her destiny may just destroy them both, as there are some things that cannot be stopped. Just as she begins to let her guard down, Stefan’s dark and deadly past catches up to him and threatens to destroy them both.

Good book. Love the story line
The spelling errors were annoying and very distracting. I thought the storyline was great, but I think the author definitely needs to invest in hiring a better editor to review her work. The beginning of the book lacked any sort of character development with all of the siblings. I felt overwhelmed with the sudden onslaught of names and I had a hard time following the story because of it. I would have really appreciated more context to the names and ages of all the kids. It wasn't until the very end of the book that the author even made it clear that there were 2 sets of twins. I also grew very tired of the constant usage of "a sudden feeling of loss" when describing the emotions felt between Isabelle and Stephan when they were apart. There are only so many times that phrase can be repeated before it becomes redundant! Isabelle's character was annoying at times as well; she was supposedly in her mid 20's yet she was acting like a 15 year old brat. Overall I'd say this was a good book, but it needs some work.
Then and than
Loved the book don't get me wrong but there is a difference between then and than... I counted 7 mistakes where she used than instead of then. Bugged the crap out of me..
