Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance
In a Flutter: So, so fun!
…bound by a kiss
When his spirit is separated from his body, werewolf Zane Wilder is invisible to everyone—except Vivianne Marchetta. A vampire who has good reason to loathe all lycans, Vivianne is eager to be rid of her shifter shadow. But the spell that should sever the connection between this mismatched pair only deepens their bond. Can they trust each other enough to survive this transformation, or will it destroy them both?
Worldbuilding: Irondell, Nightwing vampire colony setting, with our fab chick MC as Prime – cool! I also really enjoyed the rough world of the pack and their dynamics.
Characters: Vivianne is a very interesting woman and the vampire Prime of her colony. She’s a fighter, making it in a man’s world. She’s loyal and passionate, and not the cold-hearted creature she tries to come across as (particularly in her official capacity). Zane brought out the best of her.
Zane is a lycan and werewolf ghost, which is pretty cool. Ofc he’s intense and yummy. As the story goes on his sweet nature shines through and his loyal and determined streak make him oh so lovable.
Loved their banter, kick-ass chemistry, and hooooot one on one.
Plot: The slow burn enemies to lovers romance is sort of sweet and hot and so yummy. The non-romantic arc is interesting too, and I can see this developing into a great hybrid world.
Writing: Third person, past tense narrative, her/his POV. I loved his voice and sense of humor.
Curb Appeal: Fab cover, hooking blurb – impulsive buy material for my PNR needs.
I recommend Wolf Undaunted to fans of PNR involving hybrids and stories about odd couples making it in a world that seems to be pretty much against them.
