Review & Contest: HER VAMPIRE HUSBAND by Michele Hauf

I don’t care how many times those “in the know” say vampires are dead (heh), I love those fanged fatales. Today, I’m talking about Her Vampire Husband by Michele Hauf. I’m not head over heels about the title, but I’m doing cartwheels over the book itself. Sexy, funny.. well, you decide.
THE OFFICIAL BLURB: 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?
MY THOUGHTS: If you’re an old, aristocratic vampire who’s seen it all, done it all (more than once or twice), what would most set your fangs on edge? Well, first, for the greater good, you have to marry the daughter of the werewolf alpha (you just hope she isn’t too hairy). And then, when you meet the blushing bride, she has neon green hair…then pink…then blue. And a foul mouth, a fondness for very loud music, a nasty attitude, and a werewolf fiancé she isn’t ready to give up. That’s Creed and Blu.
            Michele Hauf plays up their differences, and their growing attraction, to perfectionespecially the outraged Creed Saint-Pierre, who needs to take his wife’s blood in order to fully consummate their union. Blu is engaging without being annoying (although I did want to clip the wings of her fairy BFF a couple of times), and the buildup to the climax (no pun intended) between the weres and the vamps will keep you riveted. All in all, a fun, fast read.
Want to win a copy of Her Vampire Husband? Who’s your favorite werewolf on the page (as opposed to on the screen)? I’m going to say Richard Zeeman from the Anita Blake series, even though his self-hatred makes me want to rattle the man’s teeth.

  3. I’m having trouble answering this one…I can’t think of any strait up werewolves. I look forward to Dimitri’s story (those Carpathian’s) and he turns into a wolf.

  7. Oh, interesting having the werewolf be female. It seems like so many of the stories (the Sookie books, for example) have the werewolf main characters be male.

  8. Oh, I like Lachlain MacRieve (A Hunger Like No Other) and Bowen MacRieve (Wicked Deeds On A Winter’s Night) from Immortals After Dark Series by Kresley Cole.

    And I love my werewolf and his protegee, she is half-vampire half-werewolf ;D.

    (I guess +2 RT and comment 🙂 )

  9. I have to agree with Reading Mind and say Jason from Anita Blake. Richard is too much drama for me. But Jason is HOT and dependable!
