O-negative is Marie Aberdein’s favorite treat and she hates herself for it.
But she hates the MacLeod Vampire Hunters even more. They stole everything from her. Twice. The first time, on the night of the Battle of Culloden, the Hunter killed her husband and their child. Marie has survived the last two centuries hidden away with the man she calls Father, keeping their vow never to feed from humans. But the latest Hunter—the direct descendant of her husband’s murderer—doesn’t care about their good intentions. All he wants is for their ashes to blow away in the wind, so he tracks them down and burns the only family she has left.
Payback is long overdue. Marie has escaped the MacLeods’ clutches and she intends to make this lease of life count. Merely digging her fangs into the Hunter won’t do. She’ll take everything he holds dear, starting with his heir, History undergrad and rugby-playing Gabriel. Once she has Gabriel in the palm of her hand, she’ll rip out the boy’s heart. And make his father watch.
Only Gabe is more angel than demon. His heart is warm, his soul loyal. He makes Marie feel like the girl she has never had the chance to be. A girl who wants to laugh, flirt, and be kissed. But allowing their love to kindle will clash against the beliefs that make them who they are. When Gabriel becomes the next Hunter at twenty-one, Marie will be one of the creatures he is destined to slaughter. And loving him means giving up her vendetta against his father—something she won’t do.
Sin and Sorrow is a New Adult paranormal romance set at St. Andrews University in modern-day Scotland.
A not so ordinary vampire tale
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.
I'm a huge fan of Vampire stories but it seems there are so many out there with the same old tired storyline. I'm very happy to say this is not one of them. This author kept me engaged in the tale she wove from beginning to end with its unique and original storyline. It was interesting to see Marie start out with nothing but hate and revenge as her motivation that turns to love and devotion to Gabriel, the son of her enemy. I also enjoyed the fact that both male and female leads where strong, independent characters and yet they still meshed cohesively. If your looking for a unique vampire tale, this is the book for you.
A dark and sexy paranormal romance
I received a free copy of this book from IndieSage PR in exchange for my honest review.
Sin and Sorrow is the story of a vampire named Marie Aberdein who lost her husband to the MacLeod Vampire Hunters. This tragic event leads to the premature birth and death of her son. Two centuries later the vampire hunters strike again and kill what family she has left. Upon losing the man she calls Father, Marie seeks revenge against the MacLeods. Marie's plan includes getting close to the children of the current MacLeod hunter. This leads to unexpected feelings and what some might call a forbidden romance.
This was my first book from author Marion Croslydon, and it did not disappoint! The fact this is vampire tale set in Scotland was enough to grab my attention. Croslydon's writing and story is what kept it. The book was filled with suspense, romance, and action. I cannot wait to read whatever Croslydon publishes next!
