This paranormal romance novella is published with Nocturne Bites, a ebook line from Harlequin that publishes novellas (a novella is a piece of fiction that is longer than a short story, but not novel length) between 10,000-15,000 words (that's 40-60 pages). This line of novellas targets readers of Harlequin's category romance readers who enjoy their paranormal line, Silhouette Nocturne.

While I am normally not a reader of novella's, I've started reading a few books from this line. Over break I ho

This story was all about Severo, (the lone werewolf who helped Blu in the book, Her Vampire Husband)). It gives the back story of how he came to get 'his bite' from his vampire wife, as well as a bit about his own past and how he lost his family. It was quite good to be able to fill in some of the gaps and queries that had been raised from comments made in the previous book, but there was no plot or excitement, it purely seemed like a back-fill to the character. It was romantic in places and som ...more

Okay, I'll admit it. I picked this one up because I didn't get enough of Bella and Severo in Moon Kissed. *sigh* This short and sweet novella gave me just a little bit more and helped to satisfy that craving for more, but I think I'm still going to have to pick up the rest of the books in the series eventually. I know that they won't feature these two characters, but Michele Hauf now has my curiosity peaked and I want to get to know the rest of her characters too. It's a vicious cycle. ;)
vampire Belladonna and shifter Stephan Severo - together for 6 months, married - and he still doesn't accept her bite... she is hurt, she is unfulfilled... she tries to understand...

and she suggests he face his past... they return to the forest where his parents and pack was killed by vampires, and he was held hostage... he remembers, he mourns, he cries... it is cathartic...

and he wants to be all for Bella - and offers his blood

I know how Bella felt. I too had a mate 'emotionally abandon' me during a time of crisis. It took years to build our relationship back together.
Great little story ending and removing the last barrier to the beautiful romance in Moon Kissed

Short story focussing on Severo and Bella. Didn't think it was as good as "Her Vampire Husband", which I thoroughly enjoyed.

I just didn't like the way kept changing who was talking (if that makes sense).
