Darci's Review

I read this novel in one sitting. If you are looking for a fun and heartfelt romance with a paranormal-based world, look no further. Hazelwood pleasantly surprised me with her proficient writing style and wondrous world-building that makes her characters feel as if Weres and Vampyres were among us right now. Bride follows the story of Misery Lark, the child of a high-ranking Vampyre diplomat, who volunteers to marry the Alpha of the Werewolves, Lowe Moreland. With a history of inter-species war behind them, Lowe appears to loathe Misery, whereas Misery takes this in her stride, brushing events off through humour and indifference. As Misery becomes accustomed to her new home in the Were-territory through picking locks and snooping, her true agenda is revealed: her human foster sister Serena went missing just weeks before her engagement, with one note left behind in her wake: L. E. Moreland.

This is a very enjoyable romance that creates a brilliant plot and a convincing political landscape. A must-read book for all fans of paranormal romance.

Publisher's Review

A dangerous alliance between a Vampyre bride and an Alpha werewolf becomes a love deep enough to sink your teeth into in this new paranormal romance from the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis.

Misery Lark, the only daughter of the most powerful Vampyre councilman of the Southwest, is an outcast - again. Her days of living in anonymity among the Humans are over: she has been called upon to uphold an historic peacekeeping alliance between the Vampyres and their mortal enemies, the Weres, and sees little choice but to surrender herself in the exchange - again . . .

Weres are ruthless and unpredictable, and their Alpha, Lowe Moreland, is no exception. He rules his pack with absolute authority, but not without justice. And, unlike the Vampyre Council, not without feeling. It's clear from the way he tracks Misery's every movement that he doesn't trust her. If only he knew how right he was . . .
Because Misery has her own reasons to agree to this marriage of convenience, reasons that have nothing to do with politics or alliances, and everything to do with the only thing she's ever cared about. And she is willing to do whatever it takes to get back what's hers, even if it means a life alone in Were territory . . . alone with the wolf.
