Vampire, Vampire by Heather Killough-Walden

4.5 Stars
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  It is actually two novellas in one.  The first one, the author describes as paranormal fantasy romance and is titled, “Thorn and Grace”.  It is about a race of beings which are most similar to vampires in that they drink blood and are extremely long lived.  Christopher Thorn is the prince of one kingdom and is betrothed to Darianna Grace who is the beloved princess of another, but on the night of their wedding, Darianna is missing.  Her carriage arrives, but sans Darianna.  Christopher believes that his Anna has run from him and he spends the next many (many, many) years searching for her.  And suddenly he finds her!  The rest of the story is what follows when Christopher finds the woman who broke his heart.  Loved it!  Paranomal fantasy romance?  Please, sir, can I have some more? 
The next novella was titled “Relentless: The Patrick Sinclair Story”.  I loved this one less that the first one.  It is about a girl who finds herself in a heap of trouble after meeting the billionaire, Patrick Sinclair.  I don’t think I can say much more about this one because everything else would contain a spoiler.  You learn a lot throughout the entire story (as opposed to keeping all the secrets looked up tight until the end).  The author does put a disclaimer in the synopsis saying, “Don't read it if you're expecting the development of an extremely deep and meaningful relationship in less than 80 pages.” I liked aspects of it, but I think I would have liked it better if Patrick got to know his lady-fair a little bit better.
