"Warriors and Vampires. Oh, My!"
Anna had decided to give in to Matt's advances if only to
deal with the results of the erotic dreams she'd been
having. In them, she was adored, stimulated, called
Geliebite, Ragana "Beloved". It was enough to make any
girl want some somehow. She meets a hunk who would be
perfect, but she already has the evening planned and it
doesn't include the hunky Corwyn. Nor does it include
Jorg', the man at the bar who comes on to her as she's
leaving. Anna has no clue. She doesn't know that Corwyn's
father died protecting her. She doesn't know that Jorg is
an elder vampire and she DEFINITELY doesn't know he wants
her to bear Corwyn's child so that their child can bear the
vampires' children when she comes of age!
In "Swordbearer Reborn" Corwyn and Anna find each
other through battles with Veriel, the elder vampire and
his warriors. Corwyn's family, along with others like
them, have been sworn to fight against the vampires for
eons. It is their duty and their honor to die in these
battles. But then Anna becomes pregnant and Corwyn's life
is changed by the fact that Jorg/Veriel will now come
hunting for his wife and daughter, and he must do all he
can to stop him.
"Hunter Born" tells the story of Jayde Albright, a
lovely Vermont-raised girl/woman who is attacked one night
by a vampire. She is saved by Talon Cross and taken away
to a cabin far from her home. He explains to her that
Corwyn Hunter has business with her but first she must be
kept alive to meet him. Talon begins teaching Jayde to
fight. She is a swift learner and all too ready to beat up
someone - after all, she was taken to this place
unconscious and vaguely remembers someone kissing her in a
car on the way after babbling some crap to her in German.
And just what is a Blutjagdfrau anyway? Jayde wants
answers - right now!
Night Warriors: Book One was really a quick moving
book. It caught me right at the beginning and just swept
me up in the German-based warriors vs. vampire legends.
The tales of the Hunter family and its member groups was
fascinating and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes
this genre. Since this is book 1, I am already wanting to
read book 2 (hint, hint.....)
