Forever My Love (The Melrose Coven 3) by Toby Aden

Siren Bookstrand Presents

Alistair Costanova never thought he’d have a second chance at love until Sam Hayes blows into town and turns his world upside down. Shock sends him running away from the man wearing the face of his dead lover from several centuries ago, but circumstances and attractions keep drawing them closer.

Sam Hayes is a very complicated man. Impulsive and a total slut, but he has some measure of depth to him. He’s a man with several layers and a deeply buried secret only a select few in his family line know about.

A born wizard, Sam had no choice but to keep that part of himself separate from his public life among humans, even his best friend Dorian. Moving to Melrose Town was supposed to be an adventure and a new start for Sam.

Nothing had prepared him to be surrounded by a town full of vampires, but a quick adjustment was in order, especially since witches stayed neutral from every other species. Meeting Alistair sparks his interest and the aloof man brings out emotions he’d never felt before.

For Alistair, staying away from Sam is more work than he thought possible, even if he needed to stay away for the man’s own good. But with the increasing problem of made vampires and these two fighting the emotions they feel for each other, who will succumb first?


The problem with living forever is that somewhere along time you come face to face with your past. Alistair never expected to see the face he saw when he ran into Sam. But as the story progresses he discovers that although Sam looks like his lost mate, he is completely his own person.

Alistair and Sam’s story has the usual ups and downs. Including when Sam finally hears he is a dead ringer for Alistair’s dead mate. The makeup sex is wickedly intense and fun all at the same time.

Toby Aden has continued her storyline of the Melrose Coven beautifully. Tying together Alistair and Sam’s story with Kevyan and Dorian’s continuing story. You hear more about the prophecy and get to see their son Rorik. A few surprises thrown in and a set up for more stories to come. I am looking forward to reading the next book when it comes out.
