From Goodreads:
They call her The Huntress. A vampire with lethal focus, Natalia hunts rogue werewolves and kills them without mercy. She buried her heart centuries ago. Now she lives only for revenge. But when she’s forced to team up with the alpha of the northwest werewolf pack to catch a werewolf serial killer, her carefully controlled world is shattered by the passionate Cristian.

Cristian can’t help be intrigued by the icy Natalia. He hasn’t been attracted to a female since his mate died decades ago. But now he vows to break that hard shell she wears and find the warm, nurturing woman inside.

Will Natalia accept Cristian’s claim on her heart even if it means sacrificing a part of who she is?

Alexia’s Review:
Oh my soul… I had such fun reading this book! Destiny Unchained is ‘un-put-downable’ – no jokes! I have been following this series very closely, and by closely I mean… book bullying the author J. This book has just the right amount of humour, adventure, action and sexy romance.

The alpha male in this book had my glasses steaming most of the time! Cristian is totally swoon worthy, like… “whose your daddy?” type – yes I just said that *giggles*. He is an alpha in every sense of the word, protective of his werewolf pack, watchful of nature and immensely protective of Natalia. He is dominant and proud and doesn’t take no for an answer – just what ‘the Ice Queen’ Natalia needs.

Natalia is a sexy bad ass to the bone. She wears leathers, knows how to use her knives and has a wicked kick ass attitude. Natalia has a lot of emotional baggage, which is totally understandable after everything she’s been through, because of all her emotional scarring, she builds this ‘wall’ around herself. She doesn’t let anyone come close and she doesn’t want to experience feelings for anyone or anything.

These two characters had me laughing at their bantering and *clears throat* wiping the steam off my glasses from their ‘romantic’ stunts. Cristian and Natalia go through an emotional transformation together and things just kept on getting interesting.

Leia Shaw you have once again out done yourself. I LOVED the epilogue… totally rocked my world upside down – did not expect that! Seriously epic ending! I can’t wait to get my hands on the fourth installment, Destiny Bewitched.
 Delicious – make mine a double
