This is a great prelude to Ethan's Mate. It gives you an idea of what to expect going into The Vampire Coalition Series. It is very short but paints a great picture. The characters even carry over some in Ethan's Mate. It won't take long to read and then you can dive right on into the next book in the series. ENJOY!!!!

The first 20% percent of this is just one big info-dump that serves largely to excuse the fact that Adare is one very, very selfish lover. I suppose it also gives A LITTLE bit of background about the way vampire mates hold the vampire's soul until the two are mated. I have to admit that this is an interesting idea, but it isn't explored at all. Nor is any background on the characters given. They don't have a single conversation before entering the mating chamber. I do understand that this is jus ...more

I am not one to really get in to Vampire books, or should I say I wasn't one to really get in to the Vampire books until I read this book by Author J.S. Scott. This book is sexy, steamy , erotic and overall an excellent story line and plot. I was impressed and Adare was a Vampire I would love to meet!

Mas que una novela corta yo lo considero mas una escena larga que sirve como introduccion a la trilogia The Vampire Coalitions de J. S. Scott.
Una lectura rapida y corta, esta bien para pasar un rato corto pero lo cierto es que me parecio bastante absurdo, esperare a leerme el siguiente para tener una opinion mas completa.

This was a short and sweet story that introduces the Vampire Coalition series. It follows the story of Adare and Kristin as they journey through the mating ritual for vampires. Basically this story introduces the concept and process of the mating ritual between a male vampire and his human female mate. The female mate is born with the soul of her vampire mate. The mating ritual is....intense, rough, and highly erotic. Through the ritual the female mate transfers the male's soul back to him. It's ...more

Oh just the perfect prelude to start the series, we get a chance to see a mating ritual and what a ritual this is, super hot story, but yes its short, its like finally finding a nice bar of chocolate only to have it snatched away after your first bite!! PUN INTENDED, however this scope helps us understand about what the stories will be about, we are of course introduced to our favourite Hale Brothers (Nathan, Ethan, Rory, and Liam) who thankfully will each get their own books.
I give this a 4 sta
The Rough Mating of a Vampire is for people who... vampires who are driven nearly feral with the need to consummate with their lady friends.
...don't mind when others watch.
...enjoy a quick glimpse into a world that looks to be rich in backstory. the naughty, sexy, dirty times.

This was another great J.S. Scott story. I liked reading the preparation for the mating ritual. I loved getting a glimpse into Kristin and Adare's story. This was a great preview to the rest of The Vampire Coalition series. I liked reading the end about the older brothers. I felt like it was a glimpse into the possible future that they may ind. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

I read this story after I finished all the other Vampire Coalition stories. As a result, I had already heard some of the story and understood what was happening. I think if I hadn't it would have been more of a mystery why things happened the way they did. It was a nice addition to the series.

I recommend this story to mature adults.

Erotic, short stand-alone story

Erotic, short stand-alone story

This short story is a prelude to The Vampire Coalition romance series. This story focuses on the mating ritual that the vampires go through once they finally find their mate. It's very erotic, well written, well edited and leaves you interested in the series...but without a cliffhanger.

It's a wonderful read by this author

Free download, this was a short, sexy and hot story. Short but worth the read. This book should be read before Ethan's mate as a prelude to the series. Adare is a hot alpha vampire who is mated to Kristin. This story is about their mating ritual. Would recommend for supernatural lovers.

A friend told me about this series and suggested I read it. This was a free book so I figured why not. I enjoyed it although short.

This is one HOT short story about Adare and Kristin’s Mating ceremony. Vampires have to find their mates, who are humans that are born with the vampire souls. Once they find them they have to mate with them and their souls returned to the vampire. Cool uh…well maybe if you like sex rough there is no vanilla about this. Adare goes all Alpha, possessive, and dominate
Michelle ♣ Ndayeni
A quick story that obviously is mostly just meant to present a hot sex scene and serve as something of an introduction for a new series. Thin on characterization, which is only to be expected, it's hard to really feel the intense emotions that Kristin and Adare supposedly have for one another. Still, they are intriguing enough as characters to make you wish there was more to their story. How did they meet? What are they like as people? We get some sense of the latter, but not enough. Perhaps in ...more

This is a short story which gives the reader a taste of the authors take on vampires and finding their life mates. There are a series of short stories that follow featuring the Hale brothers.
Adare Connor is hundreds of years old, he has at last found his mate Kristin. They are preparing for their mating ceremony. Kristen is a human woman, as are all vampire mates. In this vampire world vampires are born not created. But only male vampires are conceived. Adare's human mate Kri
Vampyre Groupie
Let’s be clear; this is NOT a short story. I wouldn’t even call it a proper story. A story has a beginning, a plot and a resolution. The Mating of a Vampire doesn’t have any of those. It’s basically a sex scene with lots of info dumps about the characters, vampires and their culture so that the reader at least will have a faint clue why Kristin and Adare will be having “BDSM-ish” sex in front of an audience. And despite the kinky setting the sex is pretty boring.

But to be fair, this wouldn’t ha

I think this was an interesting take on the Vampire and mate relationship, but found this to mostly deal with sex between them with bondage and hidden watchers. What should be a really hot scene falls a little flat. I think I might try reading the next story in the series to see if it gets any better because I like the concept, but not sure it works very well.

18+ due to explicit sex and situations.

Didn't care for the writing style. It was amateurish. Info dumping and a sex scene that wasn't affecting. Not having been witness to how the two came to "love" each other, I definitely felt nothing for them and their declaration of love felt false. The explanation of how mates are found was interesting.

Not a series I will be continuing.

I felt a little cheated here. It showed just the mating ritual. I thought as it was a short story series, we might have gotten the whole story.
It was hot. And Adare was everything a male vampire should be.
I don't think u NEED to read it first, but as Adare is the vampire all the other vamps mention. It probably wouldn't hurt.
