Kresley Cole - Dreams of a Dark Warrior

Murdered before he could wed Regin the Radiant, warlord Aidan the Fierce seeks his beloved through eternity, reborn again and again into new identities, yet with no memory of his past lives—only an endless yearning.
When Regin encounters Declan Chase, a brutal Celtic soldier, she recognizes her proud warlord reincarnated. But Declan takes her captive, intending retribution against all immortals, unaware that he belongs to their world.
Yet every reincarnation comes with a price, for Aidan is doomed to die when he remembers his past. To save herself from Declan's torments, will Regin rekindle memories of the passion they once shared—even if it means once again losing the only man she could ever love?

Comment: The latest installment of author Kresley Cole is mazing. I think it's a return to that eagerness and desperation of the first books. The book previous to this one wasn't this interesting, I think, with the exception of the main male character.
Anyway, this book finally tell us the story of Regin, the Radiant. This valkyrie is one of the most loved characters in the series since the first time she appeared. Like with most characters we had hints about her HEA since then, which helps the reader to vision possible outcomings. I think this is one of the author's best features in writing, this slow building of what's to come.
So, Regin is captured by the Order, like we've seen in the previous two books, with many other Lore creatures. However she soon finds that the man responsible for the torture is none but her destined mate reincarnated, Aidan, the Fierce.
In this life, Aidan is Chase, an irish man who has no clue he is part of the Lore as he was created as human and survived a vicious attack of Neopatras, thus developping a strong hatred towards anything Lorean.
However, destiny is finally catching up...

I liked this story a lot, the pace and action were strong positive points in the book. There wasn't a boring moment and I believe we saw a credible developpment of the relationship between Regin and Chase.
Of course, many secondary characters showed up and now that the fans know the next book is Lothaire's, one of the villans - so far - all the clues and hints and innuendos in this book will work out as theories' starying points of discussion. I can't wait, especially because the more we know, the more there is to know.
