A vampire princess. A human. One drop of blood changed their lives forever.
Vampires had taken everything from Quinn Hogan during the war. She had spent her entire life hiding from them. The last thing Quinn wanted in life was to be matched to one. Each human was required by law to enter the draft. Her name was randomly picked for submitting her blood sample.
Chances of being chosen? A million to one.
Luck had never been on her side.
Quinn matched with a vampire.
Now she was being shipped off to some random vampire who would probably bleed her dry.
Velika Riskel didn't want a mate. As the warden of Northwest America, there was no time for her to take a mate. When the human arrived, she had planned to release her, but one look into Quinn's hazel eyes and all of that changed.
Velika and Quinn's relationship was doomed from the start. Velika was a seasoned warrior who wasn't afraid of challenges. The vampire princess was determined to win Quinn's heart, defend her against a rival, and then claim her.
Mates and Mayhem
If you are in the mood for a little vampiric soirée this would fit the bill. I adore the concept of mates, true mates, fate and the like- this book delivered that in spades. There are some steamy scenes, lots of blood play, and, of course, murder and mayhem. The twists and turns were predictable, no big reveals that left me in shock or awe. Genre wise- it falls somewhere between erotic adventure and paranormal romance? If that's not a thing, it is now. The writing is a bit sterile. There are numerous truncated thoughts, choppy sentences, and the repetitiveness of certain phrases can cause some chaffing, but in the end, I still wanted to know what happened to the leading ladies. Maybe with more editing and a little bit of finesse when approaching grammatical choices, this will be a nice niche read for f/f vampire fans.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
