He Might Save Her
Former police psychologist Ronni Alexander had it all before a poison attacked her heart and gave her a death sentence. Now, on her last leg, she has an opportunity to live if she mates a vampire. A real vampire. One night of sex and a good bite, and she’d live forever with no more weaknesses. Well, except for the vampire whose dominance is over the top, and who has no clue how to deal with a modern woman who can take care of herself.

She Might Kill Him
Jared Reese, who has no intention of ever mating for anything other than convenience, agrees to help out his new sister in law by saving her friend’s life with a quick tussle in bed. The plan seems so simple. They’d mate, and he move on with his life and take risks as a modern pirate should. Except after one night with Ronni, one moment of her sighing his name, and he wants more than a mating of convenience. Now all he has to do is convince Ronni she wants the same thing. Good thing he’s up for a good battle.

Another quick read that drew me in immediately.  Ronni and Jared have instant chemistry even though they both initially believe they are mating to save Ronni’s life and nothing else.  It’s very obvious they’re both trying to ignore the pull between them.

I really appreciate that Jared never really had feelings of being pulled in two directions when Ginny made her way onto the scene.  Regardless if he thought Ronni was meant to be his mate or not, he is a very loyal person. It honestly made me swoon for him. 

Ronni’s story and how that ends up playing out was a bit convoluted for me.  I know, I know, this is a paranormal romance.  It’s not supposed to be realistic.  But, it’s been my experience with this author that I can see all of her scenarios playing out in a world we mere humans are unaware of.  The way things happened didn’t hold true of what I would expect from the Reese brothers or their friends.  There’s only so much an author can do with a little more than 100 pages though, and everything else was great, so I can overlook my skepticism…for the most part. 

As much as I was NOT a fan of Ginny, I’m curious to see how her story plays out in the next book.  I’m sure I’ll find a way to sympathize with her once I know why she does what she does.
