Review: Highlander Reborn

Reviewed by Jen

Laura Hunsaker takes two of my favorite genres and blends them together with this vampire Highlander novella.  I was little worried about how these two could go together, but it actually worked.

Nevin is a Highland warrior who began hunting vampires after they killed his wife.  He even went so far as to hunt the Vampire Queen herself, but his honor would not allow him to kill her unless she attacked first.  That intrigued Amalia and from then on, she developed feelings for him.  When Nevin was nearly killed on the battlefield, Amalia stepped in, turning him into one of her kind.  He fled after that, and for seven centuries, they stayed apart.

Now Nevin is a bounty hunter and he has never forgiven Amalia for changing him. But she has never let go of her feelings for him.  When she approaches him to help her track down a traitor, sparks fly. And Nevin must quickly decide what he truly feels for the beautiful queen.

I liked it.  It was a short story… less than 50 pages… but fast paced and verra sexy.  I enjoyed the vampire, Highlander fusion. Nevin is uber-hot. And the sex is great.  A few nitpicks though… I thought his about-face happened really fast. He went from hating Amalia to being her mate in the blink of an eye.  And even worse, they were throwing around the L-word after just a day or two in each other’s company.  (My Number One Romance Pet Peeve.)

If you are looking for a fast, sexy PNR short, though, this one fits the bill.  Just right for a lunch break read or hot afternoon diversion. (Plus, the door is open for the story to continue.)
