Darkness Book Six; Interconnected Standalone
He thought he lost her decades ago.
Half-demon, half-dragon shifter Ian McCabe is hellbent on getting back the only woman he’s ever loved. When Fiona O’Riley kicked him out of her life decades ago, he thought she was gone for good. Now that she’s back, nothing will stop him from claiming her. But she wants nothing to do with him—or his family.
She’ll do anything to save him.
Fiona knows that Ian is the only male for her. The only way to keep him alive is to stay away from him. But when tragedy strikes and they discover a wicked agenda for the mass murder of humans, they must work together to take down the enemies that threaten everyone. But there’s so much more on the line. As their undeniable desire intensifies, they’re faced with an unbearable choice. If Fiona and Ian succumb to their temptation, mating could be the last thing they ever do.
A second-chance romance of a decades lost romance between two characters who fought the internal battle for 50 years are brought back together in Saved By Darkness to fight a battle with evil to save the human race. Filled with tension, sexiness, and a touch of suspense, this novel was both fun and engaging to read. As a fan of dragon shifter romances, I loved how Katie wrote their kind and how she told the love story of Ian and Fiona.
Set in third person, the tale was told with just the right amount of flashbacks to give us the true backstory to these characters and set the tension for how they interacted in the present. That tension carried throughout the novel, allowing the tone to feel both juiced with sexual awareness and emotional vulnerability. What kept me from fully loving this novel is the third person viewpoint. It led to a lot of details being overly repeated and less dialogue, which, in my opinion, makes a paranormal romance snag in the pace department. I loved Ian’s alpha and how Fiona matched it with her own alpha–it built both characters to be strong and independent, but also gave them an intense weakness for one another. I really enjoyed Saved By Darkness and felt it was a great addition to the series.
