Also, Raoul or Diego likely had some sort of potential as well or they wouldn’t have made it into the novella.
I'm not sure if I think that Diego had a gift or not. I didn't think that he did, but I'm interested. What did you think it might be StellaBlueBella? I thought he was kind of there purely as Bree's romantic interest and another sane mind to bounce ideas off. I thought if they'd had more time together then they'd have totally paired off. Which brings me nicely to Fred.
I kind of got the protective older brother vibe from Fred right up until maybe the last quarter of the book. Then all of a sudden I wasn't sure anymore. I think once Diego was out of the picture and it seemed like he and Bree were on the same page about Riley's coven he warmed up to her a lot. I think he started to want something to happen between them. From Bree's perspective I always thought she didn't see him in a romantic way, just as someone dependable, which is exactly what she needed. Like I said before, I thought Bree and Diego were meant to be together, which got me thinking - if a vampire's mate is killed, do they ever find another mate? That may be off topic, but I guess it's kind of related?
