Gabriel's Mate is Book 3 in the Scanguards Series and was even better than Venice Vampyr.  The more books I read by Tina Folsom,  the more I want.

All Gabriel ever wanted was to be accepted and loved by a woman.  When his wife screamed in horror the night of their wedding,  deeming Gabriel as a monster,  she did more to him than leave a scar on his face after slicing him with a knife.

Now,  centuries later,  Gabriel is second in command with the Scanguards - security for hire.  When his boss,  Samson,  calls upon him to secure a newly turned vampire so he can take his human wife to safety,  Gabriel gets more than he bargained for.

Maya is the most beautiful woman he's ever laid eyes on.  Gabriel finds an unexplainable,  instant attraction to her.  When they realize somethings going wrong with the turning process,  the pain of his own turning surfaces in a vivid memory and Gabriel feels the need to protect Maya,  no matter what it might cost him.

In search of the rogue vampire that did this to Maya,  we see both character grow in self,  and in each other.  I absolutely loved Gabriel - so gentle and full of compassion despite his position and power in the house.  He has so much to offer to the one that would only allow it.

Maya's spunk was the perfect mix in this relationship.  I loved how she had to learn to trust and yet maintain her own independence.

Zane is the one that I hope we see broken down a bit,  not literally but emotionally.  I really just want to know his story,  which I think could be a book in itself.

Yvette was kick-ass!  She's one you would want as a friend and have fighting on your side.

Then there's Thomas - who wouldn't love Thomas?  Everyone loves Thomas and he's a great mentor to teach new vampires the ropes.

I know I don't usually divulge on individual characters,  but I just loved all of them.  Though this was the third book in the series,  this book could very well stand alone.  I don't make it a habit to read out of order,  but I don't feel I missed too much by reading ahead.

I love Folsom's writing and it always has the perfect mix of sex and suspense.  So be forewarned *grinning*.

I give Gabriel's Mate ***** (5) Stars.  Fantastic read!

You really get what you pay for with the Rosetta stone language courses . If you’re looking for other benefits, consider that fact that you don’t have to commute to college in order to learn a foreign language. Rosetta stone’s lack of compatibility with PDA’s is not a very serious drawback, especially if you don’t want to drive or walk to school anyway. If you intend to study a language entirely at home, then Rosetta stone is the best alternative to sitting in a class room. Another benefit of utilizing this powerful language learning tool is in preparation for a college course. You can use the software to learn the language and then fly through your college course, get a letter A grade, and apply the credits toward a degree or certificate. I think you will have interests to see rosetta stone discount.
