Publisher's Summary

Terrified of becoming mated like her parents, Isabelle has locked herself away in order to avoid their fate. She is content to stay sheltered among her family, hidden away as she lives out her days away from the human race and the world. Despite her determination to remain alone, her world is rocked when a person from her parents' past arrives at their door, bringing with them the powerful and stunning vampire Stefan.

Though Stefan is not expecting to arrive at a nest full of vampires, he is immediately drawn to the vibrant, often defiant, and willful Isabelle. To his surprise Isabelle does everything in her power to avoid him and her desire for him. No matter how hard she tries to fight it, Isabelle begins to realize that trying to deny her destiny may just destroy them both, as there are some things that cannot be stopped. But just as she begins to let her guard down, Stefan's dark and deadly past catches up to him and threatens to destroy them both.

Isabelle is an annoying crybaby.

What did you like best about Destined? What did you like least?

I loved all the characters except Isabelle.

If you’ve listened to books by Brenda K. Davies before, how does this one compare?

The first was definitely much better. I hope the third makes up for this one.

Any additional comments?

Isabelle was just too naive, immature and judgmental for me.

Poor story line.

I loved the 1st book! I am not sure what the author was thinking here or how the editor let this one get published but the only good part about it was the last 2 chapters. This book really dragged on and on. I kept listening because I paid for it for one and second the 1st was so good!!!! Very disappointed with this one.

Soul Mates, Never Wanted or Never Thought Would Be Found

The second book in the series..not absolutely necessary to read the first, but you’ll get more out of the story..the background and understanding of soulmates.
It is 25 years after the first book and we move into the stories of the children of Liam and Sere from book 1.
Isabelle is their daughter, not wishing to replicate her parents and the dependence on another person (soulmate) she has isolated herself away from everyone but her family.
Stefan is a vampire who is over 200 years old and has lived a life traveling around the world and experiencing much except he is alone and empty.
Two different people who experience something they either didn’t want or thought they’d never have.
A wonderful story of love, family, commitment, danger, loneliness, revenge, protectiveness, fun, humor, tragedy, jealousy...mostly live and devotion! And some hot romantic scenes! Yes they are romantic!
I loved this book, just like the first!
Don’t miss out!

First one was better

This book was okay. My problem was how weak the female character was. I like the strong, ass kicking, outspoken characters, and this one, well, she acts like those things until shes with her mate. I hate when the female is portrayed to be the home maker, and this one was. She was very easily oppressed and over shadowed by the male character and even though the story was interesting, i dont know if i would suggest it to others. I will go onto the next book, though, and I had no issues with the narration and would listen to her again.

Immature and Frustrating

Stefan is over 200 years old so he should have the patience, maturity and control of a 200 year old vampire. Instead, he has the maturity of a teenager. He has no patience and his personality comes across as more abusive than controlling. He has terrible tantrums and the way he treats Isabelle is unacceptable.

5 star narrator performance.

great love story

very authentic love story. I could definitely relate with the characters. However the cover art doesn't attract readers, it looks like two cheesy old porn actors.

exciting vampire romance novel!

I am really enjoying this series. it's fast paced, exciting, and there is wonderful sexual tension between characters. I think the story is great but I will admit I did get annoyed with the whiny character at some points. But it does get better so hang in there lol Also I did feel the sexy scenes could be a bit more exciting, they seemed a bit meh after all the build up. overall though a very enjoyable read and I am jumping right into the next novel! it's the kind of book you don't want to put down.

good series

The whole series of Vampire Awakens is totally awesome and once you start one you don't want to stop until you have read them all.

Loving the series

Very interesting storyline. Love the story and reader. The story line could go on for a long time. Hope the next leading female if a stranger female, but did not detract from my enjoyment of the book.
using different vampires. Can't wait for next book. More

Isabelle, the daughter of Sera and Liam is the star of this story. It's a great read and It's one that I have enjoyed listening to again and again.
