Gabriel's Mate - Tina Folsom Here's the story, of a lovely lady...


Who was living quite peacefully on her own. Til the one day where the lady met this fellow...


Well technically, this fellow found her as she was dying. So, let me back up a bit.

The lovely lady, Maya, was rescued from a savage attack by an unknown vampire assailant. She is brought to the home of the Scanguard Vampires, where they have to make a decision whether she dies or becomes a vampire.

Gabriel, the fellow from earlier, decides to save her life and turns her into a vampire. If you remember Gabriel from previous books, you might remember that Gabriel has the gift to unlock memories. This is extremely helpful as Maya does not remember anything about her attack. And of course, they're instantly attracted to each other.

I could do without the insta-love but no story is perfect.

Gabriel himself has a lot of issues. He has a very large scar across his face, which women seem to be afraid of. Oh and his other affliction, which you will find out about later...

Yep, that was pretty much my reaction

Anyway, they find themselves drawn together, even while seeking out Maya's attacker. This was by far the most well-written and engaging Scanguard novel so far. Maya was actually a complex character and a good adversary for Gabriel. Also, their sexy times were... unusual. I've actually read kinkier/weirder stuff before but...


And seriously, damn you Ricky for killing my beloved Carl!!
And two penises!!
I did not expect that.

It was a fun read. Definitely 4 stars!
