Title: Kiss Me Deadly
Michele Hauf

Synopsis (Goodreads):

Death cocktail is what the vampires call a witch's blood. It's poisonous, a drop will destroy a vampire within minutes. Nikolaus Drake is the rare vampire who has survived his first taste. Now he's on the hunt for the witch who almost brought him to his demise, Ravin Crosse.

A witch who spends her nights hunting vampire tribes, Ravin has three obligations to fulfill to set her soul free. One of those obligations, crafting a love spell, twists her world upside down when Nikolaus draws the spell from her veins. Natural enemies rarely make the best bedfellows but is it possible their intentions are really, truly the same? Can Nikolaus's tribal loyalty survive if he surrenders to desires far darker than his own?

My Reviews:

Well, I never read a paranormal-romance before, but this book sounds like one. I downloaded it and a few other stories from Harlequin Website.

This review will be short I guess, because I think there's not so much to tell. The first 40 pages was a bit boring and I just keep reading because I can't stop just like that (it's a habit). Yes, it started with a scene, but not quite interesting. The explanation is too much that made somehow lost the interest a bit. The introduction of both characters, Ravin and Nikolaus are a bit shaky and out of nowhere. I think it's like not strongly constructed. No chemistry. Honestly, it's more like a cheesy romance. Sorry. But, there's no overrated scene in the story. So, I was very glad.

I think the story should be better. The storyline is quite interesting though, since it's a story of how a powerful vampire being bewitched or under a spell of a young witch. The relationship between both of them pretty corny and and quite conflicted with Satan or Himself. However, the last 100 pages are very captivating and I kind of got my mood back. The story becomes more fascinating and I finally get the feeling of how the bond or romance between them sparks, finally.

I don't know if I want to recommend it but you could try since you can download it free from the website I'd mentioned above. Maybe you will like it better and love to know you will think of it. Happy Reading!
