Chelle is not your typical vampire. Turned not with a bite but an age-old magic, she's the only one of her kind and more powerful than most. Still adjusting to her endless thirst and lethal fangs, she's desperate to discover what sets her apart. When she encounters a brutally virile alpha werewolf, she soon learns that she's not immune to the mating call and her own primal longing.

The leader of the ancient Forkbeard pack, Gunnar is stunned by Chelle's lush beauty. The wild wolf inside him howls for her, but unions between vampire and werewolf are strictly taboo even if their clans weren't on the verge of war. Desire has never been so dangerous but, as a malevolent new power rises, Chelle and Gunnar face an even more frightening threat. Together, they might find a way to save their clans.
But can they claim their passion.

What did I like about The Untamed Vampire?

I’ve become quite the fan of Ms Baxter’s writing style. I find her books very easy to read and love the way she creates her stories, the pace of her tales, how the plot evolves and the urban fantasy world that she’s built. I think that the balance in this story between great banter, hold-your-breath tension, kickass fighting and steamy sex scenes was really good.

Those of you who have read my reviews before know that I am an old romantic at heart, so the “two halves of one soul reunited” love story part of this tale satisfied my mushy side but it was the real relationship doubts and insecurities that both Chelle and Gunnar experience that adds a very real and contemporary feel to this love story.

I must also mention, that it’s not just our main characters that we see such complexities, every character that Ms Baxter includes has their own set of idiosyncrasies that I find they cease to be just filler characters in a book but become real three dimensional with just as much importance as our main couple.

This paranormal romance tale made me chuckle out loud, wipe tears from my eyes and gave me yummy flutters of arousal. In short – I was gripped.

Was there anything I didn’t like?

Nope. Loved it!

I don’t think that it’s inherent to your enjoyment of this story to have read the previous books. However, as with most series, when you read novels in sequence you get to know the supporting characters and the world thus adding insights and the comfort of familiarity.

Basically, what I’m saying is…

I think this is my favourite book of the series so far!

I really enjoyed every page. It was full of emotion; it has love, betrayal and drama, exciting fight scenes and passionate sex scenes!

Content Warning:

There are scenes of explicit sexual content and graphic violence in this book. Therefore, I’d only recommend it to adults who aren’t offended by scenes of this sort.

I’d recommend The Untamed Vampire to lovers of adult paranormal romance. Readers who want their heroines to be intelligent, witty and independent. Fans who need their heroes strong, sexy with a big heart just waiting to be unleashed.

If you’ve enjoyed reading the “destined soul-mate” theme of Felicity Heaton’s Eternal Mates Series or Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians Series, then I think that this paranormal romance will be right up your street!
