Dream Warrior by Brenda Trim and Tami Julka
The only thing I found wrong with this story was that it ended. The good news is that there is another book. This is a page turning action packed romance. It had me on the edge of my seat from the first page until the last; if I didn't have to go to work I would not have put the book down until I finished it.
Elsie knows that evil stalks the night as her husband Dalton was killed by what she believes is a vampire. She joins a group SOVA (Survivors of vampire attack) to find and kill this terror of the night. What Elsie doesn't know is what she is hunting is a lot worse than vampires.
After a chance encounter with the Vampire King Zander at a dinner where she was going to get dinner. She instantly fell in lust but she is still being faithful to her dead husband 18 months after his death. She was never ever going to follow through on any of the feelings or impulses she had.
Once Zander realizes where he had first seen Elsie he gets some of his warriors who are also detectives to re-open the case and to see what they can discover. Her honeysuckle fragrance is enough to drive Zander crazy with desire. He finally realizes that she is the reason he has been unable to feed since that night that he saw her on the news and she is his mate. It has been 400 years since there has been a fated mate.
Elsie is too plagued by guilt to allow this to happen without a fight. Finally she realizes that she loves Zander but will it be too late?
I received this ARC for an honest review I can honestly say I really enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to anyone that likes the vampire stories.
