A sensitive wolf shifter and a vicious vampire challenge history, greed, and the very fabric of their beings in order to stay together until forever comes.
Plagued by pain and weakness all his life, Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter who can't shift. Hoping to find an honorable death by joining his packmates in a vampire attack, Ethan instead learns two things: Draining his blood releases his pain and his wolf, and he has a true mate: a vampire named Miguel.
More than four centuries old, strong, powerful, and vicious, Miguel Rodriguez walks through life as a shadow, without happiness or affection. When a young shifter tells Miguel they're true mates, destined to be together, Miguel sends him away. But Ethan is persistent, and being together comes so naturally that Miguel can't resist for long. The challenge is keeping themselves alive so they can stay by each other's side until forever comes.
I have read and loved everything that I have read by Cardeno C. and to listen to Until Forever Comes was just as wonderful as I believed that is would be. You have to know that I am a Paranormal Junkie, and to be able to listen to a book about Vampires and Wolf Shifters was right up my alley.
Miguel Rodriguez is a 400 year old vampire, he is stronger than most vampires, and because of his age, he is well respected. He also needs lots and lots of blood to satisfy his thirst. That is until he tastes the blood of the man whos blood should kill him, Ethan Abbatt.
Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter who could never shift, he is weak, he is the runt of his pack and he knows a burden to his family. But when he is captured by the vampires, and first lays eyes on Miguel he knows that he has met his one true mate, and for the first time in ever, he is able to shift to wolf form.
The more time that Ethan and Miguel spend together, the deeper that their bond grows. But can a shifter and a vampire, sworn enemies, find love despite their differences.
I loved the connection between Miguel and Ethan. Both are willing to fight for the other, Miguel is so protective and loving with Ethan, taking that time that Ethan needs to explain and help him understand the world around him. Ethan is sweet in his innocence and strong in his conviction that he will stand by his mate no matter what. I truly enjoyed this audio book and look forward to more wonderful stories from Cardeno C.
Cardeno C. - CC to friends - is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few "awwws" into a reader's day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno's stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever- after sunset.
Cardeno's Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/M Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, "You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day."
