Had a scary thought:: Kate and Curran as parents. Even if you take them out of the equation that's one scary powerful kid.

Scarier thought: Kate and Curran's daughter on her first date. I almost feel sorry for any potential boyfriend.

I would feel sorrier for any bothers the girl might have.  She'd make their lives miserable.

Very nice Nurselings. However, in my imagination there are two differences:

1. When Jim woke up he wasn't on the couch, nor did Kate lock her door.
2. I don't believe Jim would have run away.  eviL

I can see it now: (below IMHO is after Jim and Dali are mated/married and so are Kate and Curran..) This is male bonding  RoFl

This forum is fascinating and frustrating at the same time, because all the topics that I keep finding that I want to weigh in on, and they're all a year or more old.  Well, I'm not letting that stop me.  I'm sure there are some other newbies out there.

This was an interesting topic, because in the first book we had the red herring of Max Crest.  At first, he seems so nice and accepting, then he doesn't really notice Kate's pain on their date.  At the end, when Curran and Derek were fixing her roof, I figured that Curran was interested in her.  He's the Beast Lord.  If he was fixing it because he felt like he owed her something as a Friend of the Pack, he would have sent some people.  The CEO doesn't go out and do the work.  Curran had gone through a "parade" of women, because he had special needs in a mate.  She had to be strong enough to take on 1500 shapeshifters.  In the past, I bet he was just going for looks, and not character (hence the revolving door).  Kate didn't fall all over herself trying to impress him, and when he met her, she was sort of involved with someone else, and didn't give him a second thought.  Their relationship started out butting heads, because they are both powerful, and don't usually run into someone that they can't overcome.  Curran didn't have to hide his power like Kate did.  Derek was right when he told her Max was too weak for her (look who he ended up with).  By Magic Burns, they had developed a mutual respect, and had started to realize that they had similar values.  Curran was secretive about his interest, because he sensed how skittish Kate is about relationships.  He was a lion stalking his prey with patience and observation.  One of the reasons that I love this series.

I'd say that he had decided she was his mate at a subconscious level during magic burns, however he doesn't become consciously aware of this fact until Magic Slays. This explains how he was acting toward her in magic burns, it was more instinctual, rather then conscious, however by the time there in the pit in magic slays he actually understand hes decided he want her as his mate, then by the time he glues her to her chair hes decide she is his mate even if she doesn't think so.

As for them have a daughter, I don't see we they would chase of potential boyfriends, they seam more sensible them most parents these day and I think I would understand she would need to have boyfriends, however if they hurt her, then they would wish they had never heard of her.

I also don't think she would be any more powerful them them, just different, some form of cross of their two powers, however it a fight once she had learn to control it all it would be a major tactical advantage, think shape shifter in warrior form with blood armor
There is no such thing as impossible, and I can prove it.
Nothing can be truly random, it's either science we don't yet understand, or the Greeks were right and the God's control fate, the alternative is pure chaos and we would not exist.

Again, I have the oddball theory that Curran first realized Kate was his mate (not sure if it would be consciously or not) was in one of my favorite scenes from Magic Burns. When Kate brings up the wedding again and Curran asks her why it was so important to her-

[spoiler]
"Why are you hell-bent on their wedding?"
I rubbed my forehead, trying to wipe away fatigue and this conversation. "You really want to know?"
"Yes. What is it, guilt, revenge, love, what?"
I swallowed. "I live alone."
"And your point is?"
"You have the Pack. You're surrounded by people who would fall over themselves for the pleasure of your company. I have no one. My parents are dead, my entire family is gone. I have no friends. Except Jim, and that's more of a working relationship than anything else. I have no lover. I can't even have a pet, because I'm not at the house often enough to keep it from starving. When I come crawling home, bleeding and filthy and exhausted, the house is dark and empty. Nobody keeps the porch light on for me. Nobody hugs me and says 'Hey, I'm glad you made it. I'm glad you're okay. I was worried.' Nobody cares if I live or die. Nobody makes me coffee, nobody holds me before I go to bed, nobody fixes my medicine when I'm sick. I'm by myself."
I shrugged, trying to keep my voice nonchalant. "And most of the time, I like being by myself. But when I look into my future, I see no family, no husband, no children. No warmth. I just see myself getting older and more scarred. Fifteen years from now I'll still drag my beaten, bloody hide to my place and lick my wounds, all alone, in a dark house. I can't have love and family, but Crest and Myong have a shot at happiness. I don't want to stand in the way."
I glanced at Curran and saw something in his eyes- understanding? sympathy?- I couldn't tell. It was there for a brief moment and then he pulled his mask back on, and I was greeted with the impenetrable face of an alpha.
[/spoiler]

I think when Curran heard her say that he saw a mirror of himself and his future, because despite what Kate thought about the Pack, Curran pointed out in Magic Slays that they would forget about him as soon as he was no longer strong enough to lead them.

I also love that shortly after this scene, Kate not only has a family but she also has a pet, lol.
