Series Review – The Vampire Coalition Series by J.S. Scott

Book 1: Ethan’s Mate
Ethan's MateBlurb
Ethan Hale is a vampire with a mission. Together with his three brothers and a few other unmated members, he fights with The Vampire Coalition to protect humans from fallen vampires. His life is fairly simple. If he has a problem…he solves it. If it’s an evil problem…he kills it. But his
uncomplicated life is about to end when his mate unexpectedly calls him to her.

Brianna Cole is weak, her life force fading away. She thinks she is suffering from a rare form of leukemia. Little does she knows that her illness is much more complicated. She’s dying because she has not united with her vampire mate and given him his soul that she has been guarding since birth.

Ethan finds Brianna and knows he needs to convince her to mate or watch her die. He’s waited for her for five hundred years and he has no intention of letting her go, but she is not in any shape for the dominate, volatile mating ceremony with a vampire. He will have to win the race against time to strengthen Brianna and a battle with a stalking fallen to claim his mate. He is also at war with his mating instincts that make him burn to dominate and conquer her. But Ethan is determined, and the stubborn vampire will do whatever is necessary to possess his soul bonded mate…forever.

Thoughts
I haven’t been that into vampire books lately, but I do believe I will be reading this whole series shortly. This book was hot! I love this world and the little quirks involved in it. I can’t wait to read about Rory!

Brianna is dying from a rare form of leukemia, or so she believes. She is really dying because she hasn’t connected with her soul mate and given him his soul. She’s almost 29 and she has til she’s 30 to do this. The only thing, she knows nothing about it.

Ethan has given up ever finding his mate. The oldest vampire to find theirs has been 300 and that just happened a few months ago. Ethan is 500 years old. He lives a very solitary life.

Scott shows all the passion and chemistry here beautifully. I didn’t want to go to sleep last night! I wanted to stay up and read Rory’s Mate!

Book 2: Rory’s Mate
Rory's MateBlurb
Callie Marks never knew that when she had caught the bouquet at her best friend’s wedding…she would also meet her destiny in the same place. Rory Hale was the nicest, sweetest man she had ever met. He was also the most unattainable. Gorgeous, rich and smart, Rory would never be interested in her. He wouldn’t go for a plump, boring woman that was a chef and suffered from the rejections of her past. Who wanted a foundling that had never even known who her parents were? Little did she know…he was very interested. Unfortunately, he was also a vampire who was ruled by destiny in the mating department. His mate would not be his choice.

Rory Hale had liked Callie Marks since he had met her at his brother’s wedding. Although he couldn’t feel desire for anyone except his true mate, he and Callie had a connection. They became cautious friends and he wished he could offer her more. Underneath his confident exterior, Rory had his own insecurities, but Callie seemed to think he was special. His heart said yes…but his body was unresponsive.

Until he touched her and discovered she was his mate!

Rory was battered by mating instincts and his need to possess and dominate Callie . Could Callie ever except who she really was and what it meant to be the mate of a vampire? The guardian of his soul. Rory is determined to convince her…in any way possible!

Thoughts
The second book in the series was just as hot as the first. I loved it! I can’t wait to read more. I wish there would’ve been a clue about Nathan’s mate in the Epilogue like there was with Rory in the first book. Ahh well, I’ll just have to read it now won’t I?

Rory and Callie are perfect for each other. Neither thinks they deserve happiness or are good enough for anyone else. I love how they bring out the best in each other. That is what love is all about!

Book 3: Nathan’s Mate
Nathan's MateBlurb
Jewelry maker Sasha Taylor is from an old and aristocratic line of mages and expected to mate with a mage of the same background to secure a continuing pure line of little magic children. She would probably have complied with the old mage tradition had she not had one tiny problem with the plan. She had the mark of the vampire that she had hidden for years and was slotted to be a mate to one of the savage species of blood drinkers. Mage and vampires did not mix…so she kept the secret to herself and avoided a mating until she meets her mate, Nathan Hale…a vampire that saves her life. Nathan squashes every myth she has ever heard about vampires and she soon finds herself drawn to the very vampire she had fought so hard to avoid.

Nathan Hale never planned on finding his mate. At the age of 600 years, he had thought his time for finding his mate had passed him by. He’s shocked when he rescues Sasha only to find out that she is his chosen mate. Sasha insists that she can’t mate with a vampire, but Nathan knows that she can and she will. Fate chose her for him and he wasn’t about to let her go.

Thoughts
Nathan’s Mate is the third book in the Vampire Coalition Series. It was perfect. It showed prejudice, abuse and healing. Nathan wasn’t about to let anyone take his mate from him, especially her parents.

This book is a beautiful story of sharing and giving and loving. Sasha being a mage, raised to not like vampires didn’t stop Nathan, nothing would. I love that the mating heat hits them as soon as they touch their mate, but they can’t do anything about it until they call them.

Book 4: Liam’s Mate

Liam's MateBlurb
Liam Hale is a vampire healer with secrets, secrets that he has kept hidden for hundreds of years from his brothers for their own protection. He’s resigned to his lot in life, to work only for the benefit of his people…until he meets mage healer Regan Taylor. Regan makes Liam want more, much more than a lonely vampire healer can ever possess.

Regan Taylor is Liam’s mate, but she knows she can never reveal the truth to Liam. No matter how much she wants him for her own, mating with Liam would be like signing his death warrant.

Can these two healers that were meant to be together find true happiness when there are so many things keeping them apart?

Thoughts

Liam’s Mate is the fourth book in the series and my favorite so far. I love the fact that Liam hides the effects of killing the fallen from his brother and that only Regan knows. It’s beautiful that she goes through all she goes through to save him, even from himself.

These two, the ones who never thought they would find love, are so perfect and the two who deserve it more than anyone. Liam’s Mate is a beautiful rendition of what love is, all-giving and all-consuming.

Book 5: Daric’s Mate

Daric's MateBlurb
Prince Daric Carvillius is the twelve hundred year old Prince of the Vampire Healers, the most powerful being on earth, and very accustomed to getting his own way in every situation. When one of his healers, Liam, finds his mate after an entire millennium had passed without one healer mating, Daric is hopeful that the Carvillius Curse is finally broken; the results of a mistake he made a thousand years ago finally righted, allowing healers to find their mates. The only vampire healer he doesn’t want to see mated is himself, positive that the last thing he wants is a female he has to protect in addition to babysitting his unruly lot of vampire healers. But Daric has a destiny to fulfill, and his fate crashes into his life, literally, one snowy night in Colorado when he rescues a female human, Hannah Temple, from a blizzard.

Hannah Temple has returned to her small town after eight years in Vail, her ex-boyfriend having dumped her after a tragic accident that has left her unable to ski or even walk without a limp. Still reeling from the sudden loss of her father from a fatal heart attack, she tries to put her life back together after a year of loss and pain. Running the small pizzeria her father had left her, she feels compelled to make a delivery that is probably unwise, but important to keeping the business of Daric Carvillius, the most mysterious and notorious resident in the small mountain town.

Sparks fly when Hannah and Daric meet, and danger lingers in the background from the fallen that are eager to get to the mate of a vampire prince. Can these two lonely, lost souls who were meant to be together actually mate and find a happily ever after?
Find out in the final book of The Vampire Coalition, Daric’s Mate!

Thoughts

Daric’s Mate was a perfect ending to the Vampire Coalition Series. The two loneliest of all together. It was truly a beautiful story. I love when a male wants to fight the inevitable. And then that’s he so damn hot and Alpha. YUMMY!

I think this is tied with the 4th book as my favorite.

Thoughts
An awesome series, definitely one of my favorite vampire series. I love when the stories are short enough you can read one in a single sitting. This had 5 of those. I read the whole series in less than 24 hours. I did sleep after the first one though. J.S. Scott can definitely do vampires!
