Something big and dark slipped into the shadows at the tree line, disappearing from view among the jagged rocks.
She’d never been this close to an actual vampire...
Between one breath and the next Raina found herself wedged against the wall with a hard male body too dangerously close to her own in front. Power, like smoke billowing from a forest fi re, rolled off him in waves. As he pinned her with his arms on either side, the lethal look in his golden eyes was mesmerizing like a wild animal’s.
Plot & Character:
Fast paced and captivating! In The half-Breed Vampire I thoroughly enjoyed the well developed characters and unique plot. The heroine, Raina Ravenwing is a woman that knows exactly what she wants and she never beats around any bushes to get it. Whether it be the wolves she needed to hunt down or the sexy hunk of a man that reluctantly helps her, Raina did not allow man or beast to step in and take any control away from her. Well, except for that time when it really made things a lot steamier with the hero! I won't begrudge her that though!
The hero, half-breed Slade Donovon, really pulled at my heart strings with his back story which I think was expertly sprinkled in key parts of the story and used to build off of instead of chunks placed here and there. His sense of humor added just the right amount of lightness in some rather dark and emotional moments that really endeared me to his character. And due to Ms. Meyers attention to details, I can clearly imagine how Raina must have felt waking next to the sexy half-breed vampire in a bed of silk sheets. The author has an obvious talent for creating memorable characters and settings!
Beyond the great characters I also found the story they had to tell just as intriguing. The author wove a very unique and creative world for both Raina and Slade. I like how the author took two popular creatures of the night and added her own spin to it. Then on top of that I was excited to discover a special identity and connection to Raina and the wolves that I can't divulge to much on in order not to give more away than I already have. But I will say that I was pleasantly surprised by how the author wove that piece of Native American lure(though with her own cleaver and unique spin to it) into the book.
This is my first book by Theresa Meyers, but I will be remedying that immediately. I am wholeheartedly captivated by her ability to capture my attention and hold it from start to finish. Fabulous job, Ms. Meyers!
I found Ms. Meyers writing style to be crisp and an absolute delight to read. Her fast paced prose kept the story energized, never letting a dull moment in from the very first sentence to the last. One action feed into another, taking me from that just-one-more-page moment and on into three more chapters before I even knew it.
Beyond the gorgeous cover and enticing title, this story is all about finding where you belong, who of those around you care enough to stick with you through thick and thin and most importantly just how strong the bond of love can be if given the chance to take hold. A wonderful paranormal romance story that shouldn't be missed!
