SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS
A vampire virgin who’s given away PLUS a huge shifter protecting his pack PLUS an ancient war about to escalate…
Curvy Yuliana is a low-born vampire who’s never been with a man. So she’s terrified when the vampire king asks her to make a sacrifice for the kingdom… to become the mate of the Alpha of one of the most powerful shifter packs in existence. The only thing she knows about shifters is that they are huge and dangerous…
But when she sees her new mate, all she wants to do is wrap her legs around his hips.
Leon agreed to take a vampire mate to bring peace to his pack. What he didn’t expect was to be paired with the hottest woman he had ever seen, let alone develop feelings for her.
Is this a trick, a game of war in which Yuliana is only a pawn? Is the vampire king out to get him?
But it’s not just the vampires Leon has to worry about. The shifters are angry that he chose to take a vampire as a mate. Before the end of it all, his and Yuliana’s bond will be tested.
And if it breaks, everything will be destroyed.

WARNING: This review HAVE a few SPOILERS.
I like paranormal romances, and this being my second book by T.S. Ryder that I’ve read, I can tell you it was sexy, entertaining and got me hooked until the very end. Even after the end I wanted to keep learning stuff about the characters that were in this story, and that makes T.S. Ryder a great story-teller, in my opinion.
I’m going to make this review short and sweet. I like to talk about the stories I read but in this case I don’t want to spoil anything too much because I was pleasantly surprise during my time with this book and I want you to experience the same.
Yuliana is a “young” virgin vampire. What I liked about her was the consistent behavior I saw and the fact that she was loyal to her mate after she became his. Even though, I have to say I would have been too if I was in her place because… *licks her lips thinking of Leon*
The Alpha Wolf, better know as Leon, is a sexy hunk of a beast that is not only H-O-T but also has a heart of the size of his territory, or something. He was not a brute like someone who shall not be mentioned *coughAspencough* I liked how Leon protected Yuliana from the moment he got her as his mate, and how he got his heart involved in the game early on.
I will mention the fact that the plot of the story was not what I was expecting. Some twists and turns I did not see coming, others I did. The point is that this book not only is a good romance story, but is also very entertaining because it hooks you and doesn’t let you go until the end.
The writing was good, with a flow during the reading time that was not interrupted by complicated words or slangs. And this is important because there is nothing that peeved me more than when I’m reading and I have to stop because I can’t understand what is going on or what the characters are trying to say.
Another thing I would like to mention is that if you have a friend that it’s starting to read in English, you could easily slip this book into their hands, if they like paranormal romances of course, and it would be a great book for them too *smile*
Be ready to read more if you get your hands on this book because it does not come alone. After The Shifter’s Vampire there is a few other short stories that you can dig into and have a great time reading. Just so you know…
If you’re in for hot-as-hell vampires and shifters, you’re my girl. There’s nothing paranormal that I don’t like or write and I’ll give it all I’ve got to bring beasts and hot men (preferably both 🙂 to life for you.
I love writing stories about sexy and protective alpha males and the strong women they love. My stories are always full of steam and I generally throw in a fair amount of action.
So kick back, get comfortable, grab some chocolate and tea (or coffee if you’re a coffee girl) and fasten up your girdles for some extra smoldering hotness. Enjoy!
