Mulling over her situation, she detests the fact that she'll be spending the holidays alone. Yet she tells herself that perhaps it's all for the best. Somehow, some day, she surmises, she'll find the man she's been waiting for.
When one of her dreams becomes a reality, Stephanie is thrown for a loop. The entire time she thought the man of her dreams was just a figment of her imagination. Called in to work to investigate a random murder, she begins to question everything she knows. All the while, she's hoping that the man she's begun to pine for is not involved.
Against her better judgment, she finds herself getting in touch with one of her family in hopes of unraveling the mysteries surrounding the case she's been given. Delving deeper into the murder, she discovers things she'd rather not know. Yet one thing is clear, she's falling head over heels with the vampire whose sole purpose is to please her.
I found this unique take on vampires to be very delightful. There were quite a few twists and turns that were very unexpected. I do think the end was a bit rushed, but it does leave the reader wanting to read more. Overall, I enjoyed it very much.
Amid the chaos with her heart is the murder and display of a woman in an art gallery. She's hung up in front of a picture of the lead vampire, Nicholas - the same man from her dreams and the man she's falling head-over-heels for. Stephanie now has a murder to solve that directly involves the man from her dreams. And it would seem that an old friend has it in for Nicholas. Can Stephanie figure out the murderer and keep her heart safe from what her family deems the enemy?
I enjoyed this short novella. It isn't everyday you read a story about a member of a vampire hunting family falling in love with the very man that is hunted. The chemistry between Stephanie and Nicholas is intense but seems to come to quickly. It's believable to a point but had me shaking my head, eyebrows furrowed when you realize that this all happens in the matter of like 2 days. The amount of detail, however, and back story helps iron out that quickness. Stephanie can't land a decent man because they all turn tail and run at the first mention of her family being vampire hunters. She, in turn, falls for a vampire...Wonder how that's gonna work out at family functions!? This novella would be an excellent prequel to a full-blown novel although as a stand alone it works too.
Edgy, suspenseful, creative, and highly recommended.
