Cursed Mates by Cara Marsi

Nick Radford is a reluctant werewolf who's been fighting the Beast within for nearly 500 years. He's never killed a human, but the Beast is gaining strength and Nick may not be able to ward off his inner demon much longer.

Kyla Yaeger is an elite were-hunter with a scarred past. Her life's mission is to slay the werewolves that slaughtered her parents. Her quest has brought her to Maine, where she's been summoned to destroy the werewolf terrorizing the quaint little village of Heavensent. The last thing she needs is to get distracted by her mysterious—not to mention hunky—new neighbor, Nick Radford.

By the time Kyla learns Nick is her target, she's already fallen for him, making her task of killing him that much harder. She is torn between her love for him and her duty to kill her sworn enemy. Nick fights his forbidden love for Kyla, knowing she is duty-bound to kill him. Kyla and Nick must join forces to fight an even bigger threat—one that will destroy all humanity. Only by their combined powers, can they destroy the evil and bring an end to a centuries old curse.

Reviewer: RedDragonfly
In Cursed Mates we find Nick who has survived 500 years of battling his inner beast while trying to find and destroy the demon who changed his life and took from him his wife and son. Nick is tired of fighting off the beast's desire for death and with the help of his witch friend plans to defeat the demon before he destroys the world.

Kyla is a demon hunter who's job is to hunt down werewolf's who also has precognitive sight. She has a personal interest due to the fact one raped her mother (killing her) and her father (bitten) took his life rather than be one. You also find out Kyla in a past life was Nick's wife Catherine.

While I found this an enjoyable read, I think the book could have be condensed down a little bit and I did get lost with all the different types of demons. I liked that you had to work out who was the bad guy but once I worked out who it was, I wanted the end to come sooner than it did. The only thing I wished it mentioned was if his son Jonathon was also reincarnated? I give this book 4.5 stars.
