Reborn (Princess of the Blood #1) by Jane Ederlyn





Goodreads Review



Marie Josette d’Orgemont, cousin to Louis XVI, watched in horror as a rogue creature took her husband’s life before turning on her. A powerful vampire swept in and spared her life, but she never suspected surviving meant immortality or the price she’d have to pay to protect her surviving son.

Centuries later, in Miami, with her family on the verge of extinction, Marie is preoccupied with the continuation of her human bloodline. When she meets sexy and persistent Odin Ulfsson, his icy-blue gaze and burning touch are hard to resist. Will a forbidden romance with the Nordic werewolf be the key to her happiness, or will it set in motion a wrath that endangers not only her last human heir but her entire existence?
 



Not a fan of this fang.

This seems to be a good book it just didn’t work for me. I liked the premise of the book that Marie one of French royalty was turned into a vampire and since then has been obsessed with the continuation of her line.  Especially in urging her great, great, great granddaughter Abby to get pregnant.
In Florida and out one night, Marie recognises a werewolf and goes to see what is going on when she runs into some rogue wolves but are rescued by the pack that lives in Florida.
Odin is instantly attracted to Marie and so the vampire/wolf games begin. I found it hard to believe the chemistry that they had and everything is slow. Not that slow isn’t necessarily bad that this time it didn’t help. It led me to skimming.
There are back flashes between France, England and the present being Florida which added a certain depth to the story but it didn’t bring the pace of the book to keep me interested.
The plot is unique and I can see the appeal to why a lot of people like the book. It has the right amount of banter but that kick of suspense is missing.
Do not be swayed by my review to not read the book as this is just my personal opinion.
