The Half-Breed Vampire by Theresa Meyers
Ignorant of his true heritage, half-breed Slade Donovan is fated to feel like an outsider among his clan. Until a mysterious woman arrives with the ability to unlock his secrets—and make him crave a future he never believed he could have
.As a game warden, Raina Ravenwing has only one mission in the Cascade Mountains: to hunt down a pack of rare wolves that is terrorizing her tribe. Her instant attraction to Slade is a distraction the beautiful wolf whisperer can't afford, unless she agrees to let him help her. Yet working so closely together only intensifies their passion
even as the unfolding truth of Slade's identity threatens everything Raina holds sacred.
In the beginning of this book, it stated that it was the third in a "series", but I was reading it for a review, so I started it anyway. I quickly realized I didn't have to read the first two in order to understand the dynamics of it. The Half-Breed Vampire is about a vampire named Slade Donovan who doesn't have any memory of his life before age 8, when he awoke on the streets alone and injured. He's paired with a human, Raina Ravenwing, to track a pack of over-sized wolves invading on her tribes land and stop them. When they first meet, he's reminded of the police that he learned to almost hate from his time on the streets, and she sees him as the "bad boy" that she always tends to get mixed up with. They soon realize that they can no longer defy the attraction they have to each other, eventually turning into a few steamy, for adults-only, situations that was so well written, I could almost picture them. While uncovering the secrets of this rare breed of wolf, they also discovered many secrets about themselves and Slade's past he thought he'd never remember.
Although parts of the story-line seemed almost familiar, this book had plenty of plot twists (including lifestyle-changing decisions), action and, of course, romance to make it a very enjoyable read. I definitely plan to read more from Theresa Meyers, and undoubtedly the other books in this series.
I give this book 4 stars.
