Even novellas in this series manage to satisfy me. You don’t need to read this story to keep up with the series arc. In fact, some of the events take place at the same time as previous books. But fans of the Immortal Guardians wouldn’t want to miss the chance to meet Richart’s mysterious Jenna and watch them fall in love!
Richart first lays eyes on Jenna when he saves her from a vampire attack. In her bite-induced haze, she lays an unforgettable kiss on him and ever since, he has been looking for excuses to see her again. He poses as a shopper in the store where she works, until he works up the nerve to ask her out. From there, the attraction between them only grows.
I love the fact that Jenna is an older heroine. She is 37, with a son in college. She is a devoted single mom, but she is still sexy and a wonderful match for Richart. He is so solicitous with her, with such good manners and respect. It wasn’t super-fiery, but it was sweet and I enjoyed watching these two together.
Longtime readers will recognize a couple of scenes from previous books, as they get a repeat from Richart’s point of view. I think that could have gotten old, but the author didn’t overuse the device. The ending is kind of predictable, but hey, I wouldn’t have wanted any other outcome.
