She’s the mate he never expected. And she has powers she never asked for…
Maya Brown is New York tough. She doesn’t believe in magic—until she’s kidnapped along with her eccentric godmother, Anna. By elves.
Freed by a strange power, and reeling from bizarre revelations about her heritage, Maya follows Anna’s plea to seek out a man named Soren at—of all things—a magical bar. Maya doesn’t believe in love at first sight, either, but when she encounters seven-plus feet of muscle and mood-changing eyes, her body does a full-on reset.
Nothing shakes up Soren Westerberg, Titanian Enforcer assigned to NYC. Until a beautiful human woman with golden skin and lost brown eyes walks into a bar. In one trembling instant he knows that she’s his mate—who promptly faints away in his arms.
Their bond is instant, gloriously intense, and a miracle. Soren’s life scroll never foretold a mate, but now that he has her, he’ll protect her at all costs. Because she’s not just his—she’s an extraordinary being coming into her power. And ready or not, that makes her a target of his cruelest enemy.
Review by Julie
Imagine if everything you have been told about every urban fantasy and creature was a lie, and they were actually real!!
Meet Maya Brown, the New York creative, whose life was turned upside down when she along with her Aunt Anna were kidnapped by Elves! Little did Maya know, all the times Anna told stories about said Myths and Legends, she was preparing Maya for her fate. Having escaped her capture Maya is told to follow specific instructions about who to find that could help her..only waiting for her was more than just help. It is a formidable beast of a beautiful man, who makes her lose her breath.
Soren, a powerful Titanian Enforcer, always thought he was never destined for an Eternal mate, until a woman runs into the local bar and stuns him.
“Something happened inside him, he didn’t expect. A wave of heat and electricity invaded his entire system. His shoulder tattoo tingled with heat. His brain became muddled. Like particles in a nuclear reaction, his thoughts bounced off each other, altering him, changing, morphing… Soren trembled under the onslaught of emotions.”
Maya and Soren’s story was destined, but hidden for all until the last moment, a forever mate two halves of one heart and soul, but this comes with danger and a war. Maya had to learn fast to protect herself and her new found family. She is a force to be reckoned with when she learns she was born a mythical legend and everything she thought she knew about her life suddenly wasn’t. Could this all be too much for Maya to come to terms with, will she stay and learn more about her new world, can she leave Soren and will he be able to let her go.
One thing became apparent they were made for each other to love, support and protect. He makes her brave and she is a calming influence on him, although Soren’s fiercely protective of Maya.
“You and I are the myth in real life.”
“We are the original soulmates. That’s how far back we go. We are contemporary and ancient at the same time.”
Their journey together is a beautiful and scary one, Victoria’s imagination is an amazing place to be. For any lover of Paranormal and Fantasy books, this is full of intensity, romance, suspense and mythical creatures, it takes you on a fast paced adventure that lures you in from the first page.

Award-winning, multi-genre author Victoria Saccenti picked up pencil and paper the moment her childhood book heroes started conversing with her. Sounds a little crazy, but there’s no rhyme or reason for inspiration. Back then, she wrote one-act plays and short fairy tales for simple amusement. Today—many…many moons later—her playful stories have grown into romantic women’s fiction, paranormal, retro and contemporary romances with an edge. An avid people watcher, she explores in her novels the twists and turns of human interaction, the many facets of love, and all possible happy endings.
After thirty years of traveling she’s settled in Central Florida. She splits her busy schedule between family and her active muse at Essence Publishing. But if she could convince her husband to sell their home, she would pack up her computer and move to Scotland, a land she adores.
