The Vampire’s Wolf-Jenna Kernan

The Vampire’s Wolf

Harlequin Nocturne, Jul 1 2014, $5.75

In California while on the run from vampires, Leana-Sidhe Feyling Brianna Vittori places her survival hopes with werewolves, a species she never encountered.  Thus she drives into the mountains where the shapeshifters apparently live.  However, vampires reside there too as she learns firsthand when they capture her.

Stationed at the Marine Mountain Training Center, werewolf Captain Travis MacConnelly’s orders are to hunt down vampires.  He rescues the hybrid from the vampires and escorts her to the base; but Mac breaks military protocol when he fails to turn her in.  Instead he protects her while educating her as to who she is and why the vampires want her.  At the same time their attraction grows out of control and her stalking enemies are his adversaries too.

As the Trackers (see Beauty’s Beast, Soul Whisperer, Ghost Stalker and Dream Stalkers) take a breather, Jenna Kernan provides her fans with a fabulous urban (mountain) military romantic fantasy.  The key to the strong storyline is the four prime species (werewolves, fae, vampires and humans) are all realistically deadly; with the heroine possessing a unique way to kill as nobody turns out to be Mother Teresa goodness.
