Brynley Jones is a werewolf in love with a vampire. She knows it is wrong for her and her own species, but she can’t help it. Something about Phineas sets her pheromones haywire and she fights so hard to not succumb to it. The problem is that he knows she is struggling and makes it harder for her. She is his only hope in finding the Queen and hates that his life could be endangered. Brynley has more problems than hunting a she bitch. She has to deal with her father finding her. Years ago she escaped for her freedom and now knowing that she and Phineas are in the same land as him could be one less day of her freedom. Can she find the Queen before her father captures her again and forces her into a life of obedience?
This is my first Kerrelyn Sparks and I have to say she captured my attention. I love reading about vampires but, this story about a werewolf with a vampire was very interesting. Right away you can tell the attraction is there but both are afraid because of their status in the food chain, so to speak. Brynley is already feeling confused about the attraction and her instinct for survival. Now Phineas is a McDreamy. One minute he’s suave, romantic, sexy and then the next willing to sacrifice his life for the woman he loves. Wanted: Dead or Alive is definitely a book readers should get and Ms. Sparks is definitely an author to keep up with. Kerrelyn Sparks definitely grabbed my attention and I can’t wait for more.
Nobody does supernatural love stories featuring virile vampires and sexy shapeshifters better than Kerrelyn Sparks!
