Fast paced and very sexy novella. Mercy has been having erotic dreams for months. She never sees his face; she just hears and feels. Right before her vampire lover can pierce skin, she wakes up. Lately she feels uneasy – like she's being watched. During a museum fundraiser that she hosts, a stranger corners her in her office. When he attacks her, another stranger comes to her rescue and whisks her to safety. When she wakes up, she's instantly attracted to her sexy rescuer.

I’ve read other stories by Ann Bruce and enjoyed them, and I had a feeling I would feel the same way about Before Dawn, and I wasn’t disappointed. Quick, hot and exciting this story covers all the bases.

Mercy has been having dreams, dark erotic ones but she always wakes up before the end. Feeling that something isn’t quite right she tries to ignore them. Until one night at work the stuff of her dreams is standing in front of her, drugs her and proceeds to sink his sharp fangs in deep.

This is a quick read, only took a couple hours total. I liked that even though it was so short, it felt like a whole story with nothing really left out. It wasn't really complex but it had a plot twist that you didn't really see coming and of course the HEA.

Short story

Vampire killer meets vampire victim and they fall in love. Actually it was a lot better than my description. Very good story.

Someone please remind me not too read any more of her ebooks. I'm now two-for-two that I've DNF'd. Obviously, I'm not a fan of her work.

Way too short... Needs more character development... Not sure what to expect, but it left me lacking...
