Vampire, VampireVampire, Vampire by Heather Killough-Walden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What’s not to love about an H K-W story??

And Vampire, Vampire is a double feature. Heather Killough-Walden gives readers a heads up that these are novellas and that there is no major build-up of romance to go with the overdose of lust.

First up is a reinvented version of Thorn and Grace where they have with fangs. Not having read the original story, I cannot draw comparisons. However, this one had plenty of thrills and enough backstory to leave the reader feeling satisfied that they got a complete story as opposed to feeling bereft like the morning after a one-night stand. Grace is dealt a super raw deal for over two hundred years of her life. Thorn has spent that time thinking she left him at the altar while also searching for her. After their reunion, they are forced to fight those that would try to keep them apart. This is one fairytale where the happily ever after is not guaranteed until the last page.

The second novella is the story of Patrick Sinclair and his quest to claim his queen. In spite of the fact that Patrick was supposedly crazy in love with his queen, he was very mean, almost cruel, to her at times. In his desperation to have her at his side, he went to extreme measures to coerce her into staying as opposed to telling her how he felt. However, once she realizes all of his actions have been to get and keep her at his side, she willingly chooses to pledge her life and love to him.

As usual, H K-W does not disappoint.
