I thoroughly enjoyed this paranormal novel! I enjoyed the idea of paranormal beings needing and using a dating agency. After all, if you’re going to live for eternity, finding your fated mate really is a must! One of the leading New York Vampire socialites is Melissa Redgrave and she’s had nothing but trouble finding her match, so she decides to use the agency – where her ‘father’s’ partner works. After being interviewed, she is leaving through he reception when Tarian Drake walks in . . . They can’t take their eyes off each other and are soon dating. However, Tarian is keeping his paranormal nature a secret. Necromancers aren’t only not tolerated, they are actively discriminated against by the other paranormals. Whilst this is unfair to them, some are plotting revenge – including Tarian’s grandfather. Whilst it is a romance, it is so much more – with potential war between the vampires and necromancers an imminent threat to them all. Read it to see what happens when Melissa is kidnapped and war threatens the whole paranormal community. Will love find a way or are they just too far apart?

This book is a great paranormal story in its own right. The idea of different paranormal groups, each having their own level in the paranormal hierarchy works brilliantly. So does the Council of Elders and as for the Fated Match dating agency!!! Superb. The characters, their roles within their own ‘race’ and within the paranormal society as a whole is brilliantly portrayed, making it easy to suspend disbelief and enter this world where the lines between good and evil are ready for total realignment. I was enthralled by the fantastic story telling by this author and really want to read more from her in future! Very highly recommended to anyone who likes either paranormal fiction or romance – or even both together in one fabulous story!

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
