Hunt the Darkness by Alexandra Ivy

Book Description:

The vampire Roke is raw, sensual, always in control. Yet somehow he's allowed the unthinkable to happen: a nymph-like witch named Sally has used her magic to trick Roke into mating with her. The pair will remain bound for eternity unless Sally breaks the spell. The trouble is, she has no idea how. . .
Mating with Roke was an accident; at least that's what Sally keeps telling herself. She's on the hunt for her demon father, whose identity holds the key to releasing the spell. The search won't be easy with Roke shadowing Sally's every move. As they mate with a ferocity that leaves them both aching for more, Sally isn't sure if her world is more dangerous without Roke--or with him. . .

My Thoughts:
Great paranormal romance.  Roke is not happy with being mated to Sally.  Especially since he mates for life and is only mated to her because she put him under a spell.  Problem is, his body doesn't believe it is a spell, his body believes it is the real thing and he couldn't be more attracted to anyone than he is his mate.  She is his and they have to be together, even if she is on a crazy mission to find her demon father so she can undo the mating spell. The spell that neither of them want, but that neither are sure they want out from under it.
I absolutely loved both Roke and Sally.  She didn't intentionally place the mating spell.  He can't help but be attracted to her, but it isn't just because of the spell.  There has been a mutual attraction for them since they laid eyes on each other and the mating bond just emphasized it.  I loved how protective and caring Roke was, even when Sally didn't want him to be, he still took care of her first.  The plot evolved nicely and I adored some of the secondary characters (especially a small, annoying one).
This was a solid 4/5.  It is farther into the series but is fine as a stand alone.  I am going back to the start of the series since I seem to have missed several!
