awesome story about a Highland warrior who unwittingly attracts the attention of a female vampire-she takes him from his new wife on their wedding night, and turns him, but his wife gets blamed and banished for his murder, and subsequent rising from the grave.
Callum then searches for his beloved until he finds her in exile, and turns her.
"To Tame the Beast"-4 stars
great short about a vengeance obsessed vampire who takes the eldest daughter of the clan that wronged him ...more
I thought this would have been an automatic win for me based on the title alone. Unfortanately, that just wasn't the case.
The first story, Kiss of the Vampire was dreadful.
The Scottish burr in the first story was one of the most awkward things I've read in a long time. The most uncomfortable example was use of the word "mon" for "man."
What is this, Jamaica? Ugh. Total fail.
The third story, To Tame the Beast was also pretty lame.
However, the second story, His Eternal B ...more
"His Eternal Bride" by Adrienne Basso is well worth 5-stars, particularly when I had to pull the tissues out at a particularly poignant scene ...more
About Kiss of the Vampire:
I couldn't tell if Janklyn is a vamp or werewolf. Comments were made about "wolf eyes" yet he couldn't be out in the sun.
Overall, the book was pretty decent. Not a favorite, but I would recommend it.
Ive only read the first title, and already im being a critic. Nothing never changes! hha.
I do, I do love Hannah Howells books they are amazing, but its the names. where do you get these names from?
Main characters names in this book are Efrica Callan and Ja ...more
The second story is from an author who is new to me. At first I thought I was going to be disappointed because it seemed the hero wasn't going to end up with the woman he was marrying. He is murdered on their wedding n ...more
"Kiss of the Vampire," by Howell
- Jankyn McNachton has a relative in a sequel. FYI
"His Eternal Bride" by Basso
- Maeve is accused of murdering her husband and is BANISHED (with her mother) to a tower by the sea. Her husband was turned into a vampire and has been off having "woo-hoo" with his turner. Poor Maeve's mother dies and after a period of time, her vampire husband begins stalking her at night. Actually, as silly as this sound ...more
The other 2 stories I liked much better. Much more depth to them in their shortness. Glad I read this book.
All three stories from all the different authors are really great. I especially enjoyed the Deborah Raleigh.
Raliegh's story was wonderful. I loved it. A twist on the whole vampire idea but very well done. 5 stars
Basso's story, i didn't like as much. It was odd and hard to follow at the beginning. I didn't enjoy it as much as the others. 3 stars
Very entertaining. Howell did a great job, even in this shorter format, of creating two well-drawn main characters. A great mix of romance and some suspense. Starting to really enjoy the MacNachton Vampires series.
This was really good... I just wish Jankyn was not shy just and did not give up easily...
His Eternal Bride
This story made me cry... Maev's story was really touching...
To Tame the Beast
This story was good... I really admire Isobella's courage and love for her sister...
Unfortunately, because the cover and size are so different in comparison, I bought both versions.
She has also used the following pseudonyms:
Anna Jennet, Sarah Dustin and Sandra Dustin
