This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Emily Brooks is just an unremarkable girl living a boring existence--she teaches kindergarten, has a small house on the north end of Tampa, and tries not to envy her sister's perfect life. But Emily holds a remarkable secret within--one that won't stay hidden much longer. She is about to become something and someone completely different--that is, if she lives long enough to undergo the transformation.
Tragar is a Beast Kindred with tragedy in his past. Pain and loss have driven him from the Kindred way of life and into a new career--that of a deadly Verrak assassin. The Verrak take an oath to kill every target they contract for or die trying. Now Emily is in his crosshairs but the moment he gets close enough to her, his sharp Kindred senses tell him something is different about this particular target. Emily is a Khalla--a rare female who some say embody the essence of the Goddess herself. She is a treasure beyond compare. Tragar is well aware that his own choices have left him unfit to serve her but at least he can protect her until he can find someone worthy on his home planet of Rageron.
But there are dark forces in their way. Tragar's oath to kill can not be broken lightly. And there is a shadowy figure rising from the darkness who wishes to claim Emily's life. Can the fallen warrior guide and protect Emily to the place she truly belongs? Or will he die trying? You'll have to read Targeted to find out.
A Beast Like No Other
Evangeline Anderson's newest Kindred Bride book "Targeted" has got to be one of my favorites this far.
Emily Brooks is a kindergarten beacher that believes she may be going crazy. She feels as if there is another person living inside her and is now trying to get out...AGAIN. After a horrible experience in collge when her "other" attempted to take over her body, she is afraid of being with any man, but the man of her nightmare has come back into her life an dfollows her home one day after school. She attacks the man after a few bad suggestions from him, and a beast kindred comes to her rescue. She doesn't expect to find out that Tragar, a Verrak assassin, has actually been sent to earth on a ontract to kill her. After watching her for 10 days, had realized that she is not someone that he could kill, but actually a rare femail from his home planet, Rageron, and he was brought up to treasure these rare femails called "Khallas". Unfortunately when a contract is accepted, it cannot be fulfilled until either the target, or the Verrak, is dead. Tragar vows to get Emily to the holy mountain on Rageron before the final stage of her change so she can have her mate chose for her by the High Priestess, and then will die himself to change her life. After an adventure that leaves you on the edge of your seat, tears in your eyes, and heart pounding, they finally admit to their feelings for one another only to have more twists and turns before they can ever get their happily ever after. I cannot wait to see what kind of adventure Evangeline can come up with next.
