WILD AT HEART
Chelle is not your typical vampire. Turned not with a bite but an age-old magic, she’s the only one of her kind—and more powerful than most. Still adjusting to her endless thirst and lethal fangs, she’s desperate to discover what sets her apart. When she encounters a brutally virile alpha werewolf, she soon learns that she’s not immune to the mating call—and her own primal longing…
The leader of the ancient Forkbeard pack, Gunnar is stunned by Chelle’s lush beauty. The wild wolf inside him howls for her, but unions between vampire and werewolf are strictly taboo—even if their clans weren’t on the verge of war. Desire has never been so dangerous…but, as a malevolent new power rises, Chelle and Gunnar face an even more frightening threat. Together, they might find a way to save their clans. But can they claim their passion, in The Untamed Vampire by Kate Baxter.
This is a yummy installment in the delicious, dangerous, and deadly, Last True Vampire series. In reviewing the first book, I was optimistic that this was shaping up “to be a must-read series for fellow vampire groupies.” Four books in and I’m still convinced. I liked The Untamed Vampire, but I have to admit more as a bridge then as a book on its own. #4 simply whets your appetite for #5. While Chelle and Gunner’s love story is far from domesticated (steamy, sensual, and savage are good adjectives), it doesn’t have the same intensity as that promised in the stories to come. The peripheral characters here steal the show, this reader’s mind is already roaming in the future. Chelle and Gunnar’s union is the perfect setup for the impending battle that is charging the air and putting my hairs on end.
This is a must read, but Baxter will make it even better if she hurries the next book along. I’m ready for the next story. While the wolf and the super vampire (maybe demon) are interesting, I’m intrigued by the red headed fae assassin and the mayhem finding her is going to bring.
