Her Vampire Husband by Michele Hauf

June 10, 2010 Reviews 0

I have to say I just loved Her Vampire Husband by Michele Hauf. It wasn’t until after I finished reading it that I found out it is the third book in the Wicked Games series. I had no problem catching up with what was going on in this supernatural world of werewolves, vampires, and witches.

An arranged marriage between a werewolf and a vampire.
There will be blood.
She may resist his bite, but she can’t resist his charms…
Werewolf princess Blu Masterson won’t allow her seductive vampire husband to consummate their marriage with his bite, marking her forever. Alone in a secluded estate with her sworn enemy, Blu curses the marriage arranged to bring their rival nations together, especially since Creed Saint-Pierre calls out to her most feral desires.
When Blu uncovers her pack’s secret plot to destroy the vampire nation—and Creed—she is forced to confront her growing feelings for her sexy undead husband. Will she choose the only life she’s ever known or accept his vampire bite?

I loved that Blu and Creed were such an odd couple. He is over 900 years old, and she’s in her 20’s. But it’s not just their age difference that plays a factor, but that they are different species. She is a werewolf, and he is a vampire. Their marriage is supposed to be a truce and to bring the two fighting nations together, but both the vampires and werewolves have other plans.

Blu and Creed are forced by their respective groups, the Weres and the Vampires, to marry in the hopes that their union will bring peace to these long warring nations. Unfortunately things aren’t what they seem and as Blu and Creed begin to care for each other and to learn from one another, everyone from their parents, and tribes, and even the Devil himself will conspire to keep them apart and their union to end in tragedy. Going into this marriage both the Nava tribe and the Northern pack had other motives, they weren’t for peace, they were for war.

I really liked Blu and Creed. Blu was such a vibrant character. She is very much a women from the 21st century, she loves to dress up, wearing different brightly colored wigs to suit her mood, red lipstick, and sexy clothes. She gives off attitude and is completely irreverent. She is charming and full of life, but under all that she is a wounded women, with scars. She was one of the only females, in a large group of male werewolves. You would think they would have treated her like a princess, but no, she had to learn to survive.

Creed was a sweet hero. In the beginning it seemed he’s going to go the way of the alpha man, but he quickly morphs into a rather sweet and noble hero that wants nothing more than to save his wife from all that would hurt her, even himself and his people. Creed has been around for a very long time, and you can see this through his air of intelligence, and sophistication, that so many of the younger vampires lack. He is puzzled by Blu and her many different colored wigs. Creed is drawn to Blu, her love of life and her amazing body. Creed and Blu were physically attracted to each other and Hauf wrote some very hot and steamy love scenes.

The later part of the book deals a lot with the two waring factions. Creed and Blu are trying to make the truce a reality but coming up against strong and dangerous opposition. Aside from trying to make something of their marriage Creed and Blu also have to deal with the groups of vampires and werewolves that are against the truce. They find out they are not safe and have to make decisions concerning their loyalty to their nations and each other. The political aspects of the story were complex with different groups within the vampire and werewolf nations at odds.

Her Vampire Husband is a nicely rounded paranormal romance with lovable characters who demonstrate that even polar opposites can overcome the odds and find true love in each other. If you are in the mood for a funny, sarcastic heroine then this is a must read for you, Blu is all that and more.
