Mina Roarke had always been told she was special. In what way, she never fully understood until circumstances led her down a path of adrenaline-charged danger, blazing sexual heat and ultimate betrayal.

Mathias, a warrior for a secret shifter race known as The Coteri, has been ordered to protect Mina at all costs. Although his oath to protect her is paramount, can he rein in his animal instincts long enough to not claim the one person he’s forbidden to have?

Review: I can never read too many books on the paranormal because as Ms. Donnelly and Ms. Mackenzie have proven there are always new ways to show how shifters came to be. I loved there fresh take on shifters.

The characters were so easy to relate to and fall in love with. I didn’t want to put this delightful story down once I started because I was caught up in it from beginning to end.

I was able to visually see the scenery in the states as well as in Germany. I wanted to get to the castle to see what it looked like inside and I was not disappointed.

From the time that Mina’s mother dies and she finds that her father is still alive your heart goes out to her. Going to Germany at her friend Chloe’s request seemed the right thing to do at the time. Wanting to meet the father who left her and her mother alone all those years ago.

I loved how Mina showed that she had an inner strength about her that seemed to surface once she got to Germany. I loved her sarcastic remarks they added humor to the story. She seemed to accept the information that comes at her like a pro. Sure she had questions but they were always answered, maybe not to her liking but none the less they were answered and she was accepting of those answers.

I loved Mathias, a very virile strong male. Shifter, sinfully handsome and stubborn, usually the hardest kind to fall in love but when they fall they fall hard. I found it sexy the way he became very protective of Mina in such a short time. He would move heaven and earth to protect what was his. This is my kind of guy.

Once Mina arrives in Germany things start to happen and they don’t end until the very end and even then there are hints of more to come.

I enjoyed how the plot kept going and keeping me enthralled in the story.

There was the whole thing that went on with Luca, although I felt in a way it was needed to help Mina and Mathias get to where they needed to be, I almost thought that in a way it really wasn’t needed. It seemed like a distraction.

I would love to hear the story of Mina’s mom and dad as they touched on that briefly in this story. I look forward to the next book which gives us the story of Talon another hunky shifter and Chloe who is Mina’s best friend and the sister to Mathias.

I highly recommend Infinite Betrayal to anyone who loves the world of shifters and looks for a different take on how they came to be. A simply wonderful beginning, for Ms. Donnelly and Ms. Mackenzie, I canna wait to read the next book.
