AUTHOR: Ali Hazelwood
GENRE: Paranormal romance
A dangerous alliance between a Vampyre bride and an Alpha Werewolf becomes a love deep enough to sink your teeth into in this new paranormal romance.
Misery Lark, the only daughter of the most powerful Vampyre councilman of the Southwest, is an outcast—again. Her days of living in anonymity among the Humans are over: she has been called upon to uphold a historic peacekeeping alliance between the Vampyres and their mortal enemies, the Weres, and she sees little choice but to surrender herself in the exchange—again…
Weres are ruthless and unpredictable, and their Alpha, Lowe Moreland, is no exception. He rules his pack with absolute authority, but not without justice. And, unlike the Vampyre Council, not without feeling. It’s clear from the way he tracks Misery’s every movement that he doesn’t trust her. If only he knew how right he was….
Because Misery has her own reasons to agree to this marriage of convenience, reasons that have nothing to do with politics or alliances, and everything to do with the only thing she’s ever cared about. And she is willing to do whatever it takes to get back what’s hers, even if it means a life alone in Were territory…alone with the wolf.
Thank you to PRH/Berkley for an ARC of this book!
I have loved everything Ali has written, and this is no exception. I am a sucker for vampire/werewolves and pretty much all the tropes in this book.
-marriage of convenience
-…some other things
ANYWAYS this book was amazing. I loved Misery and I think Ana comes in as my second favorite character followed by Owen. And of course Lowe and Serena and Koen. Honestly, there is a whole great cast and it absolutely would be lovely to get more of their stories.
This book had a pretty even amount of plot to romance ratio, and is a true PNR. I get shivers thinking about it, because I definitely adored it and the world that Ali Hazelwood built for this book. We do have the typical factions, but I think it was well done in a way that was slightly different than we’ve seen before.
Also, as always, there were some amazing one liners in this book that had me laughing. I honestly, truly loved this book, and it has seeped into my brain and will not come out. Obsessed.
This book shows she can write in any genre and still do an amazing job! I don’t want to spoil the book for anyone, but just know this was a great book and if you’re a fan of PNR/spicy romance this will definitely be the book for you!
