Her Vampire Husband – Michele Hauf
I’d never read anything by Michele Hauf previous to Her Vampire Husband. However, after reading, I’ll definitely be looking out for more of her books.
I’ll read pretty much anything with a vampire in it, so it wasn’t really a hard sell. Her Vampire Husband is the story of vampire tribe leader, Creed, and werewolf princess, Blu. The war between vampires and werewolves is coming to a head and things look to get messy. Therefore, both races have put forward their most prized members and decided they should marry, in order to put them on the road to peace.
Neither Creed nor Blu are particularly happy about marrying a member of their enemy race, but recognise they must do it to try and establish peace. However, things aren’t that straightforward. Both sides are looking to betray and slaughter one another, rather than cease fighting. Just to make things even more complicated, Creed and Blu go from detesting one another to falling madly in love. It’s certainly not love at first sight, but they go from feeling their marriage is a complete sham, to believing it’s the best thing that ever happened to them.
For this reason, amongst many more, the unlikely couple decide that they must unite and do their best to make the peace between the two races – for real. They’ve proven that vampires and werewolves can get along, and so they have to make yet more sacrifices in order to stop the war, and also, to stay together.
Overall, this is a really good read. It captured me from the very beginning and kept me thoroughly interested throughout. And, whilst it’s certainly not erotica, there are some pretty hot sex scenes in here too! This book is a great combination of supernatural, romance and sex – highly recommended!
