Diskant is an Omega. He possesses the ability to shift into any form. He has a good relationship with all the various shifters in his area. They also look to him as part of their own even though Diskant clearly stands apart as something different. While out hunting rogue vampires Diskant discovers a group of them attacking a lone female. As soon as she is in his arms he knows that she is his mate.
Ava is more than she lets anyone believe. She works hard to maintain her own independence. Her brother who has problems of his own seems to get her inadvertently involved with his troubles. It is her brother’s selfish actions that have put her into a dark alley late at night that allowed her to be attacked by vampires. When Ava wakes up in a strange bed, with a strange furry critter sniffing and licking her (and no, it’s not Diskant) she knows that something went entirely too wrong the night before.
The insta-love is very believable and works well with the story. The connection that Ava and Diskant have allows for it. (I’m not going to explain the bond further, I feel that it could be a spoiler.) Insta-love can get on my nerves under some circumstances. That is not the case here. The mating, bonding, and connection that they go through add to the eroticism also.
Have you ever read a book and the only thought running through your mind is this needs to be a series because I want more? I lived with that exact feeling the entire time I read Omega Mine! I loved everything about this book. The storyline is captivating, the characters are spectacular, the evil villains are intriguing, the romance was passionate and the sex was very erotic. Hunter brings an interesting world of shifters, vampires, and magic to her readers. She has set the table for two romances that I cannot wait to read. I also want to know more about the Shepherds and the Villati. These were the two different villainous beings of the story. Hunter was a new author for me. I am looking forward to reading more of her books!
Favorite quote, Diskant to Ava. “You turn me on when you’re angry. I can’t wait to learn what pisses you off so I can get you good and fired up just to cool you back down.”
I also want to point out that the model on the cover is a perfect representation of Diskant.
