Review: Her Vampire Husband (Galley) by Michele Hauf

where I got my copy: HQN
where to buy: Amazon, B&N, Book Depository
release date: April 1, 2010

An arranged marriage between a werewolf and a vampire.
There will be blood.
She may resist his bite, but she can't resist his charms...
Werewolf princess Blu Masterson won't allow her seductive vampire husband to consummate their marriage with his bite, marking her forever. Alone in a secluded estate with her sworn enemy, Blu curses the marriage arranged to bring their rival nations together, especially since Creed Saint-Pierre calls out to her most feral desires.
When Blu uncovers her pack's secret plot to destroy the vampire nation—and Creed—she is forced to confront her growing feelings for her sexy undead husband. Will she choose the only life she's ever known or accept his vampire bite? 

Her Vampire Husband has a promosing start. Starts off with an arranged marriage between a Vampire and a Werewolf Princess just so they can prove to the Union that these two nations can actually get along after centuries of violence with one another. Blue Masterson, our Princess Werewolf have spunk and a smart mouth to complete the ensemble. She sported a green wig on her wedding night and the thme of her wedding is black, way to express the mood huh? Our resident Vamp is named Creed Saint-Pierre, 900++ year old vampire with magics stolen from witches. Good looking and extremely proper. Despite the obvious difference of nations, these two actually got along pretty good. They almost immediately called out a Truce and fell in love. Blu and Creed found out that the peace talks and their marriage are just a decoy for both parties while they plan the attack on each other. Upon knowing this Blu and Creed against the world happened.

I had issues with Creed at the beginning, the way he talks, so proper, so old school, so 19th century. I find it hard to conjure a mental image of how he looks like. He is described as this hot 30 year old looking vampire but every time I read his dialogue I keep picturing an old man plus he keeps saying that he's old. But not to worry that did not stay as an issue.Blu on the other hand lacks finesse, her slang and modern language is just too cackling and those outfits. Togehter, they are so damn entertaining. As far as taking care of the problem, I don't like most of the decisions they did. But it all worked out for the best so my complaint stops right there. LOL

Blu's father is a horrible man / animal. All the lies and situations that he put Blu on was just despicable, and that's what I like about this story, it shows that traumatizing part on our heroine, it makes her vulnerable sure but it also made sense on why she's the way she is. I also like how Hauf played the Vampire - Werewolf marriage, it was quite unconventional. The knowledge that they posses about each others race was all based on rumor until they get to live in together. And the love scene, that was intense the first time Blu spent the full moon with Creed. A bit creepy but totally appropriate for the whole plot. I am a first time Michele Hauf reader and I must say I like her style.

I enjoyed this book but it definitely took a lot for me to overlook the politics and the endless drama of Blu's family. I did find myself wishing that their relationship was the focus of the book instead how their relationship happened in spite of everything else. Great review!
