Fateful Reunion by Tina Folsom
Welcome to Saturday Shorts. Today it’s Hot vampire romance.
Publisher’s Description: Vampiress Roxanne thought that, by joining Scanguards as a bodyguard and starting a new life, she could put her painful past to rest. However, old wounds are opened when a new client surfaces, requesting protection for himself and his companion.
Charles, a witch, has never been able to forget Roxanne, though duty had forced him to leave her without explanation twenty-three years earlier. Now he needs her help to save the vampire and witch world from a dangerous force. But saving the world isn’t the only thing on his mind. He wants Roxanne back.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel (or, in other words, SPOILERS).
Nervous Nellie says…
First of all, this is a romance, so there is sex. It’s with Vampires, so that’s usually all they think about. No cliffhanger, no graphic death.
If you are a fan of Tina Folsom’s Scanguard Vampires, you’ll have to read this one just because. It’s not one of the best, so I’ll warn you right now. It’s a novella so there wasn’t much time to get her story in, but it was an ok story. I only remember Roxanne in passing a couple of times and she was never part of the limelight like the rest of Samson’s vampires.
The plot was rather thin, but again, it’s a novella and a romance so there is absolutely no time to really develop a plot. Anyway, Charles has a good reason for skipping out on Roxanne 23 years ago and it didn’t take but 32.5 seconds before they were hot after each other again. I’m not a fan of just up and leaving without a word, so his motivation reason left me prickly.
The time that this novella takes place is still in the future – what I call the future – because all of the original Scanguard’s kids have grown up and taken on their own places within the business.
