Of Flame and Promise - Cecy Robson

Cursed by a spell meant to destroy them, Taran Wird and her sisters instead developed unique magical talents. With the power of fire and lightning literally at her fingertips, Taran doesn’t fear much. Demons, vamps, whatever—bring ’em on! Only one thing terrifies her: commitment.

Taran is crazy about her boyfriend, Gemini, a sexy were with the incredible ability to split into two separate wolves. But after watching her sister go through heartbreak with the pack’s Alpha, Taran knows not to count on happily ever after—despite Gemini’s desire to claim her as his mate. Reluctantly, she agrees to meet his very traditional and conservative parents. Taran’s a badass with a mouth to match, and Gemini loves her for it. She’s just not positive these attributes will please Mom and Dad.

Unsurprisingly, every attempt by Taran to bond with Gemini’s folks proves disastrous. But in the end, Taran finds that winning them over means unleashing her powers . . . and proving that this foul-mouthed fire-starter is a force to be reckoned with. 

My thoughts:
This one takes place during previous books, the timelines goes into each other. As this is now Taran's story.

And Taran is having issues in her relationship with Gemini. I get that, she saw what Aric put Celia through, and now I got angry at Aric again. Love sucks! She is afraid to give her heart and trust to Gemini. And he is such a sweetie and just wants to claim his mate. We have them dealing with that.

But the fun part was that his parents are coming to visit. Omg, Taran can just not keep her mouth shut. I enjoyed this part of the story.

And we can not forget about the action, yes there is that there too. Bad things are always around. Those pesky demons.

Conclusion:
It's a novella, so that is about it. Some laughs, some passion and some action. I can't wait to read more.
