Friday Frights ~ PNR Review ~ My Guardian (Bewitched & Bewildered #6) by Alanea Alder

Book Description:

The next chapter in the Bewitched and Bewildered series is about to begin. 

Meryn and Beth have been summoned by Beth’s uncle and council elder, Magnus Rioux to the vampire’s pillar city of Noctem Falls. Meryn in a city of vampires, what could go wrong? Aiden and Gavriel are about to find out. 

Eva Mae Miller has been around for a long time. But never in all of her centuries has she ever had to turn to vampires for sanctuary. But when whole paranormal families begin disappearing in her quiet Texas suburb, Eva knows that it’s time to set her pride aside and join the other refugees heading to Noctem Falls for protection. 

Adriel Aristaios doesn’t know what to make of the small human his commander is mated to. Bethy assures him that Meryn is sane, but he’s not so sure. Magnus must be out of his mind bringing a pregnant human and precious Bethy back to the City of the Night, just as things are about to get ugly. To complicate matters he’s pretty sure the sassy, blonde shifter who has just arrived is his mate. How can he possibly do his duty and protect their Prince, when he has not only his commander’s mate and little Bethy to guard, but also the woman who has stolen his heart. 

When racial tensions threaten to boil over and sink the city in chaos, Adriel surprisingly finds himself relying on wacky little Meryn and his mate to help keep things from turning violent. But as more information comes to light, it’s clear that someone is out to destroy his city. The question is will they find them in time?

Our Review:

Reviewed by Shirley ~ 5 stars

This series never disappoints. Yet again this book has a really great story with a menace building up and affecting all the people that surrounds the Vampire City of Noctem Falls.

Not being able to look away the Prince, Magnus Rioux, Elder and leader of Noctem Falls, opens up the city doors and encourages the refugees to come in for their own safety but not all are happy with his decision.

Magnus reaches out to his niece Bethy who lives in Ambrosios to come to their aid, knowing that they had knowledge about this enemy and had fought against this menace that is surrounding his city and taking the people away from their homes. With no delay Bethy comes with her vampire mate Gavriel and the Commander of all the units, Aiden McKenzie, a bear shifter and his human mate Meryn.

The indubitable Meryn cannot help but liven things up in the rigidly controlled vampire city giving the book lots of humour that gets you laughing as you picture this little human woman bossing around the paranormal giants that surround her. You have got to love her, but she does also have a serious side that is amazing and with her adopted sister Bethy by her side diplomatically settling any ruffled feathers that Meryn can cause keeps her out of trouble most of the time.

But the nub of this whole series is the spell that the Elder Matriarchs had casted to bring the future mates to the warriors in the units so they wouldn't be alone and in this book. Adriel the vampire leader in one of the units who are stationed in Noctem Falls and his meeting with his mate Eva, whom he had been dreaming about for months but which had nightmarish qualities to it as it showed her death which was something Adriel vowed would never happen to her.

With all the uncertainty and disappearances of the local communities, people start arriving at the vampire city and Adriel’s unit was there to oversee the influx of people coming through the doors and it was while doing this that Adriel spots her.

Adriel makes his way over to her, this tall warrior of a woman who in one look he knew to be his mate standing before him and couldn't help but introduce himself and telling her of their bond. Eva looked into his eyes and knew he told her the truth because she felt the same and told him so and being a forthright woman told Adriel exactly how she felt and how they should explore their feelings more which were getting stronger the more they were in each other’s company and the sexual vibe that was thrumming between them.

Adriel needed no more telling and quickly took her to his house and Eva was introduced to her new home and environment to what will be her future home. Eva persuades her somewhat staid mate to join her on the bed and the heat slowly rises between them making Eva press Adriel to make love to her and he couldn't resist.

“The pounding of his body into hers, the feeling of his fangs deep in her neck, and the warmth of his soul next to hers proved to be too much. This time she screamed, he pulled back and roared his release along with her.”

The story hots up with heart breaking occurrences and with certain vampires not happy with the refugees in the city only livens the story up especially with Meryn being in the thick of things. You really have to laugh whenever she is around.

All round this is a very enjoyable book with mayhem, love and laughter to keep you turning the pages. It is worth every one of the five stars that I have given it.
