Darcy is turning bitter because if her past. Then her brother Liam, tells her live it up. Then she meets a mysterious woman, who will reappear later.
Darcy goes to talk to a new home owner and what they want to do with house. Her and Jack have the hots for each other right away. Due to a bad storm, they give in. But, then that woman shows up and all things go badly.
I would recommend it because I really like where these authors are coming from (setting, mythology, storytelling style), but on its' own, this left me feel 'unfulfilled' (there...I worked a euphemism in after all!) Let's see this become part of a bigger story line!!!
The writing itself was spectacular. I found it easy to slip inside the story, and the styling made it a really quick read. All the characters were likable in their own way, and I think this is a really good teaser for the novel that follows. I look forward to jumping back into this world soon. Irish vampire mythology isn't something that I read about a lot, but now my interest has been piqued, and I think about the whole point of a good book.
The only downside for me was the ending. I think the "love" happened too quickly, and I would've been happy with a HFN ending rather than a HEA, but that's just a personal preference. All that aside, I highly recommend this novella for its strong writing, excellent characterization, interesting mythology, and not so over-the-top smut.

Anything to do with Vampires, werewolves, and shifters is right up my alley as long as there's steamy sexy, mystery, and a plot.Read more
