4.0 out of 5 stars Vampires Realm book 9,
This review is from: Hunter's Moon (Vampires Realm Romance Series Book 6) (Kindle Edition)Nicolae has hated vampires ever since his pack was captured, kept as slaves and tortured. He has never forgiven himself for being unable to save the others, as alpha it was his job to protect them but he is the only one who survived. It may be 100 years since he escaped but he has been suffering ever since, he may live near another werewolf pack but he refuses to join them and prefers keeping to himself. His only companionship comes from the local timber wolf pack who he has formed a close bond with. While out hunting he comes across a group of hunters and is immediately concerned for the safety of the wolves but after following them he soon discovers that their prey is a woman. Unable to let them kill her he steps in but when he discovers that she is a vampire he regrets getting involved. He should leave her to her fate but something stops him and he finds himself wanting to help her. Can he put aside his hatred of vampires and help Tatyana? Who are the mysterious hunters and what do they want from her?
Hunter's Moon is the 9th book in the Vampires Realm series but it is the first one that I've read. Usually I hate to read a series out of order but I was assured that these books are all stand alone and I didn't have any problems following the story. I enjoyed the book so much that I'll definitely be picking up the rest of the series though and am looking forward to finding out more about the vampire realm.
Nicolae is a dark and brooding hero, alpha to his core but also incredible sexy and definitely a hero to lust after. As you learn more about his past your heart will melt for him and you can't help but want him to have a happy ending. I loved his relationship with the timber pack, it has taken him years to gain their trust but now they are used to working together and he works hard to keep them safe. When he first discovers what Tatyana is his first instinct is to let the hunters have her but there is something deep inside him that refuses to let that happen. It isn't easy for him to trust her but as they slowly get to know each other I really enjoyed watching their feelings blossom.
Tatyana's bloodline has never kept werewolves as slaves so she finds it hard to understand Nicolae's attitude towards her. With him blowing hot and cold she is confused and annoyed but as she learns more about his past she starts to realise how much he has suffered. She hasn't had things easy either though and has reasons of her own not to trust him. She is on a mission to track down the hunters that killed someone close to her but then has every intention of returning home to the rest of her family when her task is complete. She wasn't looking for a relationship but there is something about Nicolae that she finds irresistible. The pair both fight their feelings but the sexual chemistry between them isn't something that can be avoided forever. They are both afraid of being hurt again so their relationship develops really slowly and I enjoyed the fact that they took time to get to know each other rather than acting on their attraction early on.
I loved the fact that they are both strong characters and they look out for each other. Tatyana may start off weak from injury but as she gains her strength she proves to be a kick arse character and protects Nicolae as much as he protects her. She certainly isn't a wimpy heroine and is worthy of her hot alpha male. The action scenes are well written and make it easy to picture what is happening. While there is only one sex scene it was worth the wait and the tension between the couple in the build up will definitely leave you fanning yourself. This is a great paranormal romance and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a dark and dangerous alpha hero. I'm looking forward to devouring the rest of the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!,
This review is from: Hunter's Moon (Vampires Realm Romance Series Book 6) (Kindle Edition)*** may contain spoilers***
First of all I can say Grr... the dude on this cover is something else, I love a good muscly back shot. Mmm... Christ, I'm such a perv, but I digress. The cover is amazing, must be something in the water this year because I'm seeing a lot of great covers.
Okay, so in this book we are introduced to Nicolae. *sigh* Okay, I'm sorry but can I just point out that I totally love this man, he has made a place for himself in my heart. Something I didn't think possible because Winter (Grr...) dominates it. Felicity was determined to find a character to trump my Winter, it didn't exactly work because I'm crazy obsessed with him. But at least I let Nicolae in, and he is super yummy. I'm sure you're pleased with yourself Felicity... lmao.
Now, back to the review. We find Nicolae running through the Canadian wilderness with his animal wolf pack, the closest thing he's had to a family in nearly one hundred years. I swear I melted for him reading this book, he'd been through so much pain and heartache only to hide himself away from the world. He lost his Were pack to the cruel hands of the Tenebrae Bloodline, can I just say *gasp* I really hope Venturi had nothing to do with it. Even though we all know he a naughty boy I don't want to picture him hurting Nicolae. I refuse to! So, following years of torture at the hands of their 'Masters' Nicolae and his kin decide to escape, but sadly he's the only one that gets away. His people protect their Alpha and sacrifice themselves for him. Since then Nicolae has blamed himself for their deaths, he sees himself as a failure. When in truth he is a strong, dominating, if not dark and brooding man. Plus, he's just down right sexy! Then of course there is his protective and caring side, the part of himself which he reserves for his animal wolf pack, and one lucky lady. Mmm... The perfect alpha male.
While out hunting with the wolves Nicolae comes across several strange men in the forest. Men armed to the teeth and obviously looking for something, or someone. Worried about the pack Nicolae follows them, until they discover him and he flees, stumbling across a beautiful and unconscious woman. When he realises that she is not a woman but a vampire, as he puts it, Nicolae turns to leave. But he can't do it, he takes her home and the attraction he initially felt grows into something amazing.
Tatyana wakes to find herself in a strange house, with a strange man standing over her, she does the only thing she knows how and attacks in order to protect herself. With the first taste of his blood she knows he's a were-wolf and fear sets in, she's too weak to fight him off. Little did she know that he was already wanting a piece of her, in a good way. I really love this character, as I've said before I hate seeing heroines who act all brave but are really wee girls who run and hide behind their men. Luckily Felicity never provides this type of heroine and Tatyana totally kicks ass. She is brave, fierce, and deadly... a true vamp through and through. She takes crap from no-one, and protects Nicolae as much as he protects her. Then there's her caring side, her softer side, which she shows Nicolae and soothes his wounded heart and soul with.
As they get to know each other Tatyana discovers that Nicolae suffered in one of the compounds and she makes a point of letting him know her thoughts on places like that, and her Bloodlines, the Nocens, views on keeping slaves. She has good relationships with the Were-wolves who work for her Bloodline, well as good of a relationship as the damn Law-keepers allow (I fecking hate those dudes, always getting in the way). She explains to Nicolae how the world has changed, how the Bloodlines have evolved and it makes him melt a little more for her each time. Ohh... I loved watching them break each others resolves and worm their way into the others heart. It was great. Normally I'd be calling Tatyana a bitch for hogging such a great man right now, but I really can't do it. I like her too much, and she totally deserves herself some hunky alpha. Nicolae is as lucky to have her as she is to have him.
As usual we get a good helping of action and loving in this book. The fight scenes were great, and as you all know I love me some action. It was great how Felicity described the Were's shifting. I really felt as if I was watching the change and the fighting going on right in front of me. And like I said before Tatyana kicks ass, and Nicolae is just amazing so all the better... lol. Now, the love scenes... Ohh... but wow. I cheered when they finally gave in to their cravings, all I can say yea Tatyana, that girl went and took what she wanted. As much as I enjoyed their loving I honestly think that the hottest part of the book was when they cleaned up each others wounds following their fight with the Were packs alpha. Mmm... I never imagined clinical work could be so god damn sexy. It was hot! Really! Just wait and see...
Okay, I'm gonna shut up now before I say too much. You know the drill people, go buy a copy of this book. It's amazing, I promise.
