Alexandra Ivy-- "Beyond the Darkness" (Guardians of Eternity series)

Salvatore Giuliani is not a happy werewolf. It's his duty as leader to track down the pureblood females who can keep his people from extinction. but the moment he catches scent of Harley, a pureblood held by a pack of many curs, his savage need for her obliterates all other instincts. And the only thing worse than being captured is finding that beautiful, independent Harley defiantly refuses to become his mate.
Harley has been taught to distrust all Weres, especially their arrogant king. She won't be used for breeding or bonded against her will, not even to a man who makes every nerve tingle with awareness. Yet Salvatore is her key to saving the family she never knew she had--if she dares to succumb to his dark, predatory desire, and face a vicious enemy sworn to destroy them both...

***In the previous installments, Salvatore has always been the bad guy, interested only in saving his species from extinction, no matter how he has to do it. He was a very unlikable character until this book, I guess finding your true mate can humble a man. And now we see a totally different side of Salvatore. I actually found that i liked him after this book, and Harley seems to be a perfect match for him. As the series moves along, the group increases and we get to see previous couples come back to the story. Even the funny Levet is still around, but seems to vanish shortly after the beginning. But the women won't let the men leave it at that, it seems they will be searching for him and Tane in the next book. And the vampires and werewolves must come together to defeat a common enemy to save the world from a demon lord trying to return from his realm...

I enjoyed this installment so much i read it in one day.
