sexy blending of vampires and werewolves
Why did I read this? And am I glad I did?
I came across this via Lurv A La Mode’s paranormal cover spotlight post. It sounded like an interesting, hot read and it was. I started it while I was waiting for my sister to get off work and finished it the next day while working out. As far as I know, I didn’t need to read the previous books to enjoy this. Although some things may or may not have made more sense. I did like this and I’m glad I read it. I think the $6 is well-worth it for the eBook. It was a great sexy escape.
She may resist his bite, but she can’t resist his charms…
Werewolf princess Blu Masterson won’t allow her seductive vampire husband to consummate their marriage with his bite, marking her forever. Alone in a secluded estate with her sworn enemy, Blu curses the marriage arranged to bring their rival nations together, especially since Creed Saint-Pierre calls out to her most feral desires.
When Blu uncovers her pack’s secret plot to destroy the vampire nation—and Creed—she is forced to confront her growing feelings for her sexy undead husband. Will she choose the only life she’s ever known or accept his vampire bite?

I liked the story. It was different while still sticking with most of the usual paranormal themes. I liked the old-fashion idea of marrying off parties of opposing sides to make a show of peace. While there are more paranormal creatures than just weres and vamps, they were the focus which I liked.
The background story balances pretty well with the sex. The mystery of how it would all work out had me flying through the book.
Creed is sexy and protective and provocative. Blu annoyed the crap out of me. I’m sorry to the Blu fans, but I couldn’t get over her use of the phrases “my bad” or “dude”. Don’t get me wrong I started to care for her as the book went on and was able to skim over her poor language skills.
If you like a good paranormal romance, I’d recommend this. I wouldn’t consider this an Urban Fantasy.
