She’s not looking for a mate…

Rhea is a warrior. She’s bled and fought for the Stavros wolf pack for over a hundred years. She never expected to fall for the Alpha of a dragon clan. But when her past comes back to haunt her, she finds herself working side by side with the very man whose been staring in all her fantasies. She never wants to get mated because she’ll never risk getting someone she cares for killed. Not again. So she convinces herself that they have something fun and easy, no strings attached.

But he’s playing for keeps…

Conall, Alpha of the Petronilla clan, has been biding his time claiming his future mate. At fifteen hundred years old he’s patient and cunning. Except when he’s around Rhea, years of civilization are stripped away and all he wants to do is possess her, make her his forever. But something happened in the stubborn woman’s past and she’s determined to keep walls between them. It’s a good thing he’s a dragon. He’ll just burn down every last barrier between them and claim what’s his. But someone from her past is threatening her and her pack—and the life of the woman he’s waited a lifetime to make his own.

Shifters, vampires and dragons are real…

A year ago Liberty had no idea that things that go bump in the night actually existed. But supernatural beings are real. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in her new reality. Saved from a Hell realm by a team of half-demons and a demigod, she finds herself falling for her sexy rescuer Rory more and more every day. She’s worried she’s too broken to ever have a relationship again, but the more time they spend together, the harder it is to deny her attraction.

And when they choose a mate, they don’t give up easily.

Half-wolf, half-demon Rory has been looking out for Liberty ever since rescuing her from hell. And since she’s the wedding planner for his half-brother’s wedding, he sees her all the time. Not to mention he just happens to spend every night in her bed. Unfortunately he’s in wolf form when he stays over. He’s not sure what it’s going to take to move from friend to more, but he’s willing to wait forever if that’s what it takes. Because Liberty is worth fighting for, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make the brave survivor his.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Into the Darkness" by Katie Reus. Book 5 in the Darkness series. Two for one! Two love stories wrapped up into one excellent book. At first I thought this book was going to be two separate novellas but it's not. Both stories blended really well with each other. The main romantic couple is Conall and Rhea. The second couple is Rory and Liberty, who were just introduced into the series in the last book "Hunted by Darkness." The story starts 8 months after the last book. Someone is targeting the Stavros wolf Pack and somehow this person is connected to Rhea. The only person that knows about her past is her Alpha, Finn. It's a terrible time to be dealing with this when good friends, Bo and Nyx, are getting married. But on the plus side, Rhea gets to see Conall, Alpha of the Petronilla dragon clan. Since she met him months ago, they've had a friendly relationship but she can't help think of wanting something more with him. But she just can't be responsible for the death of another male which is what she fears if her and Conall were to take their relationship to the next level. Conall knew that Rhea was his mate the first time he saw her but she's not ready to have a relationship. But Conall is a patient dragon and has been taking it slow with Rhea. When Conall finds out that someone is after Rhea, he's not waiting any longer. He'll do anything he has to to make sure that Rhea is safe....and his. Half demon half wolf shifter, Rory, helped rescue the human female, Liberty, from a Hell realm months ago and he's been looking after her ever since. After what she's been through, she's on the road to recovery and he thinks she's the strongest, most intelligent, most beautiful female he's ever met. But he doesn't want to push her into a relationship she's not ready for. But he knows that Liberty is his and he'll wait for her for as long as it takes for her to accept him as her mate. Liberty never knew paranormal creatures existed until she was kidnapped and held prisoner in a Hell realm. And she couldn't believe a demon/wolf-shifter saved her. Rory has been taking care of her ever since...even sleeping with his wolf form, to make sure she's safe. She is definitely not ready for a physical relationship after what happened to her but Rory is the first man...male...she's even thought about in an intimate way. Can she take the next step in their relationship? Or will he leave after he gets her out of his system? She doesn't know anything about the supernatural world, least of all how mating really works. I loved this book! The overall story plot of who's trying to attack the Stavros Pack was a great background for the romance of both couples. Conall and Rhea's chemistry is flirty and hot. Rory and Liberty's chemistry simmers beautifully and sensually throughout the story and is really heartwarming. The culmination of the overall story plot is a little anticlimactic but it actually makes sense and doesn't take away anything from the story. Absolutely loved this book and I can't wait to read the next one! The epilogue leaves you with a bit of a teaser as to who the next book will be about. Loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4.5 stars- Katie will captivate your imagination 4.5 stars---INTO THE DARKNESS is the fifth installment in Katie Reus’s contemporary, adult, DARKNESS paranormal romance series. As per the blurb INTO THE DARKNESS is one book, two stories about four people, fated mates, a wedding celebration, and an act of revenge-years in the making The reader was first introduced to the main characters (Rhea and Conall / Liberty and Rory) throughout the series; the females have struggled with loss, betrayal, and heartbreak; the males have been searching for something more. The characters are strong, colorful, animated and engaging. The $ex scenes are seductive, romantic and intense. Katie Reus is one of my favorite go-to authors. Her writing style and use of imagery pulls the reader into the story line-you become one with the characters-feeling their emotions, heartbreaks, wants and needs. The world building follows two love stories that interconnect when the Stavros Pack is targeted during the wedding festivities for Bo and Nyx. There is no loss of cohesion, no loss of emotional build up, and no loss of action when Katie blends two romances into one story-the flow and pacing are quick, even and never wanders into ‘filler’ territory. There are moments of humor and fun to offset the building danger. What ensues is the search for the person(s) responsible for the attacks, and the reason why. The angst and anxiety builds when one of their own goes missing, and the Pack is targeted once again. INTO THE DARKNESS is a story about hope, passion, and a look to the future while letting go of the past. There is intrigue, suspense and revenge; drama, passion and steamy $ex. Katie Reus will captivate your imagination with her sexy world of the supernatural.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Into the Darkness During a week of wedding festivities, two couples fight for their chance at happily ever after when an unknown enemy targets the Stavros Pack in this spectacular paranormal romance. Rhea is a warrior and she’s not looking for a mate, but Conall, Alpha of the Petronilla clan is playing for keeps and after being saved from a Hell realm, Liberty’s worried that she’s too broken for a relationship and Rory’s not sure what it will take to move from friendship to more but he’s willing to wait forever if that’s what it takes. Readers can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement happening during Nyx and Bo’s wedding festivities as everyone parties and fights for happiness. As always the characters in the Darkness world are strong, charismatic and easily capture readers’ attention and in this story you get triple the romance and happiness as Bo and Nyx get married, Conall tries to convince Rhea that she is the mate of an Alpha and Rory patiently helps Liberty overcome the trauma she suffered, another words there is plenty of emotional turmoil flowing from the pages right along with the excitement and sizzling passion in this fast paced, smooth flowing plot that keeps readers on the edge of their seat. Just as the festivities get started, danger comes calling and the pack discovers that an unknown enemy has targeted their territory which adds adrenaline pumping excitement and spine tingling suspense to the story as the pack work to discover the who and the why while trying to keep everyone safe which has the readers glued to the pages as the well written scenes, full of vivid details brings all the excitement to life. The Stavros Pack keeps things lively that’s for sure, there was a few surprises and lots of danger and passion throughout the story with the two simultaneous stories adding to the spice and complexity. I was in no way ready for the festivities to end, hopefully it won’t be too long before I can visit the Stavros Pack again.
