The Beta's Vampire: A M/M shifter romance (Penhul Pack Series Book 2) Kindle Edition
Beta of the Penhul pack with a vampire? Over his dead body.
Lucian is bored. After a century of being a vampire, nothing surprises him anymore. Life, such as his can be called one, has become predictable. Humans are predictable. Add in the fact he’d rather not feed from them, and a visit with a witch friend of his clan is a welcome distraction. But when he meets Benedict, it’s anything but predictable, especially when he stumbles across the man transforming into a dog before his eyes. And never in an eternity did he think he would find himself wanting to drink the mutt’s blood.
As beta of the Penhul pack, Benedict knows pack comes first, like having to spend weeks away in the Lake District on pack business. But the last thing Benedict expects to find when he returns is his brother having found his fated mate, or worse, a vampire feeding from his witch. His homecoming definitely won’t go down as his finest moment, and he’s certainly not prepared for his reaction to the bloodsucker.
Can Benedict see past their differences and put aside his prejudices of vampires? Or will his choice of mate cost him his pack?
This MM romance from Beth Laycock features enemies to lovers, fated mates, a vampire with an aversion to feeding on humans, a sexy man that can shift into an adorable dog, and of course a HEA. The Beta’s Vampire is the second book in the Penhul pack series and should be read in order.

I liked The Beta’s Vampire. I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite shifter/paranormal romance, but the premise was definitely different than your run of the mill paranormal romances, and I really enjoyed the dynamics between a shifter and a vampire being fated mates. There was this sense of two different cultures battling it out for each other, and I loved wondering who would be dominant in a relationship between a beta dog shifter and a vampire. After they stopped fighting their attraction, both Benedict and Lucian complimented each other very well even if they didn’t want to see it at first. The spiciness level was probably about a three out of five for me; there were a few detailed scenes, but nothing over the top and nothing too wild compared to other paranormal romances. The Beta’s Vampire wasn’t too long of a read, but it is available on Kindle Unlimited so readers can quickly move through both books currently in the series.
From the very beginning my heart went out to Benedict. Even though he is the Beta and his brother is the Alpha he still feels alone within his pack. He’s initial reaction to Lucian is completely understandable. Emory is his witch and the only person who he feels is truly his. Absolutely, that is why he his the vampire when first meeting him. There couldn’t possibly be any other reason why he got angry. At least that is what we’re lead to think.
Lucian is a worldly different take on a vampire. Yes, there is the classic must drink blood to stay alive; however, what doesn’t fall under the classic umbrella…he won’t feed from humans. He is also quite reserved which is nice from the in your face I am superior vampire or the I am bored I’ve lived thousands of years and nothing is exciting or fulfilling anymore.
The author providing a dual point of view shows both meant struggling with their actions. How they typically would react to events vs. how they give up control with each other.
I am very excited I read this one and I am looking forward to the other stories in this universe to come!
