BOOK MONSTER PROMO: "Burdened By Desire" by J.L Sheppard **REVIEW ADDED**

Elemental Sisters, #2
Publisher:  The Wild Rose Press.

Jocelyn, an Elemental, is stuck between the mortal and immortal worlds, yet not quite a part of either. Her power over the elements of the Earth won't evolve until she meets her mate. Before then she's an easy prey and a coveted possession for the Malums Inmortalis who wish to conquer the world.

Alpha werewolf, Landon, has been living with the knowledge his fated female, the one woman created for him, is just beyond his reach. For months he's forsaken her, refusing to accept his mate because she can never grant him a much-needed heir for his nearly extinct pack.

Despite his decision Landon finds himself drawn to Jocelyn and when an attempt is made on her life, he realizes his destiny lies with her. Can they overcome the long-held prejudices of his kind and defeat their enemies in time to find what the future holds?

OK, second book in the series....and it didn't let me down!

We still have Lucas and (now mated) Jenna.  And they have found one of Jenna's sister, Jocelyn.  She hasn't come into her powers yet, as it transpires that you need to have met your mate to have them kick in.

When Jenna and Jocelyn are attacked one night, Jocelyn uses wind to aid.  Shocked, and not realising that its because shes found her mate, she confides in Jenna, who reveals shes met him.....but who is it!?

The Demons Guardian all meet, and take Jocelyn with them.  Werewolf Alpha, Landon immediately finds himself drawn to Jocelyn.....he cant help it, and when he sees Cain (a demon friend) clutching her, hes almost so enraged he starts to turn.

He decides he cant have her.  As the Alpha he has to have another of his kind to produce any future Alphas.  He chooses his pack over his potential mate.
Three months on, he can no longer avoid her and they meet again.  Jocelyn finds her self irritated by him.....but also drawn.....

This book is largely based around the Jocelyn and Landon storyline, having to overcome long standing traditions - but that doesn't mean that the Malums (the evil of the dark world determined to destroy mankind) have eased up....Jocelyn starts to be able to harness a bit of her power and can help...

....But she cant forgive Landon.  For knowing she was his mate, and for leaving her for the first 3 months.  After a life time of being deserted, Jocelyn is highly sensitive to it, and doesn't know if she can forgive him....can she trust him? Does she REALLY love him?

Can he convince the Alpha Council that to accept a human as a mate is acceptable? can he convince himself?

a lot of questions, but the answers are in here! I'm just not going to tell you!
looking forward to the next book already!!
