Review: Lacey and Lethal by Laurann Dohner

Set in the same world as Scarred and Kilt and Mine to Chase.

Lacey hunts vampires—vile monsters who leave death and shattered lives in their wake. They murdered her sister and she wants revenge. Until she captures a big, sexy, blue-eyed vamp, and the strong attraction she feels contradicts everything she’s become. But she can’t resist getting closer. Just looking at him makes her mouth water and her thighs clench.

Lethal can’t believe the little lass got the better of him. He’s been drugged and chained, but he’s more insulted than concerned. She’s bold, fearless, as she straddles his hips and threatens to use his body, teach him how it feels to be taken without consent. Now he’s intrigued and eager to get her out of her clothes. She swears he’s the enemy, but he’s determined to be her lover.

After losing her sister in a vampire attack, Lacey has dedicated her life to hunting and killing any vampire she can find.  Until she captures Lethal.  Lethal is a master vampire, stronger than any she has meet before, and she is drawn to him and soon loses all desire to see him turned to dust.

Lacey is funny.  She is sassy with some amusing one liners and doesn’t take any grief from anyone, including a centuries of vampire. At the beginning of the short she is sad with the grief of her sisters death still weighing on her but as she opens herself up to Lethal and the prospect of moving on, she has quite the sense of humor.  Lethal was sexy and Scottish so I could just imagine his burr as he spoke to her.

There were a few threads that I didn’t feel were completely tied off at the end of the story.  The main one being Lacey doesn’t find the vampire that killed her sister.  Lethal sends some of his friends to find him but at the end of the novella he hasn’t been found.  There is also Lethal’s use of mind control on Lacey at the beginning of the story where he convinces her to have sex with him instead of killing him.  He never comes clean about that.

Overall I enjoyed the world that Dohner created but I would have liked a little more detail as to the make up of the society of the vampires and werewolves.  Mixing the werewolves with the vampires was a nice touch and I am hoping to see many more books featuring the secondary characters mentioned.
