Authors website

After Maya is turned into a vampire against her will, vampire and Scanguards bodyguard Gabriel is charged with protecting her and finding her attacker.

Gabriel has never guarded a body as perfect as Maya’s. But while the sexual tension between them rises and the rogue vampire closes in on them, Gabriel can’t allow himself to give into the desire he feels for Maya. He fears to fully show himself to her despite the intimacies they share - afraid she will react like all other women when she discovers the horror he hides.

Will she run from him when she discovers his secret, calling him a monster, a freak, a creature not worthy of her love?

Caution: graphic and explicit sex scenes - not for the faint of heart.

My Review

Gabriel’s Mate is the third book in Tina Folsom Scanguards steamy vampire series, its exciting and different in many ways. I love how Tina can take vampires and add some mythology in the mix, is totally different. I loved the mystery, steaming hot sex and the blood and gore, you can't have a good vampire book without that. This is a true paranormal erotic romance at its finest. This book is my favorite so far, in this series.

One day I will have to ask Tina how she comes up with these men and their manhood problems LOL. This poor guy has a hung dinger of a problem, but once he finds out the true source of the problem that has plagued him for years, it turns into something extra ordinary. Tina leaves you in suspense about his manhood problems, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to find out what it was. You just have to read it for yourself. Gabriel is very different and as you read in the first of the book you’ll find his problem caused him to be what we call a tormented hero. He lives years without companionship and that is what he wont’s most in life, even after becoming a vampire. I will say that sometimes when we read the tormented hero they seem to drag on forever with the oh woos is me and thinking stuff they shouldn’t in their heads, to cause even more friction between him and the heroine. I have to hand it to Tina she never drags this out like most authors, you’ll read some of his whining, but it wont last long. Although Gabriel is a little skittish at times.

One night while Maya is going home she is attacked. A couple of Scanguards guards finds her and brings her in. She wakes and finds herself thorn into a different world and has to learn things new, but the thing is Maya is different herself and even in this world she finds again she is different. Maya will lose a lot from her life, but gain so much more in turn.

I loved reading Maya and Gabriel. They are both strong in ways and let me tell you Maya takes nothing off of anyone even a vampire.

You also get to read about the other Scanguards vampires. One is Yvette, I really enjoyed getting to know her more and hope she gets a book soon.
