Highland Hunger is a historical paranormal romance, it is also an anthology with three stories by Hannah Howell, Michele Sinclair and Jackie Ivie.
Dark Embrace by Hannah Howell
Raibeart is a vampire who comes from dying clan. He has been sent out on a mission to find other's like him. After a not finding anyone he comes across a young lady named Una who had been captured by an evil man and has just recently escaped. It was a good story, there was good chemistry and I thought it was well written.
A Knight Beyond Black by Jackie Ivie.
Iain arrives one night at a ball with the full intention of marrying his betrothed. But Tira has no idea she is betrothed, in fact she has prepared herself for spinsterhood. She soon finds out her father has in fact sold her marital status so they could survive. This story was just ok, it feel apart for me a times, in part because I was lost for a good portion of the story and the second issue was that I could not relate to Iain.
The Guardian by Michele Sinclair.
Moirae is a guardian of her village (town, whatever) and her family was killed, an event that she barely survived. Dorian is a vampire who is a little bored with life and sets out to see what mischief his nephew Ionas is up to. When they meet Dorian and Moirae deny their feelings and it makes for an interesting tale. Out of the three this one should have been a full length book. While I really enjoyed it. all of the careful building seemed to falter as we raced to the end and it felt really rushed.
