Review of Paranormal Romance Novel Kiss Me Deadly by Michele Hauf

Title: Kiss Me Deadly
Series: Silhouette Nocturne, book 1
Author: Michele Hauf

Official Synopsis
Death cocktail is what the vampires call a witch's blood. It's poisonous a drop will destroy a vampire within minutes. Nikolaus Drake is the rare vampire who has survived his first taste. Now he's on the hunt for the witch who almost brought him to his demise -- Ravin Crosse.
A witch who spends her nights hunting vampire tribes, Ravin has three obligations to fulfill to set her soul free. One of those obligations crafting a love spell twists her world upside down when Nikolaus draws the spell from her veins. Natural enemies rarely make the best bedfellows but is it possible their intentions are really, truly the same? Can Nikolaus's tribal loyalty survive if he surrenders to desires far darker than his own?

My Review
What happens when a witch vampire killer who stalks and kills her prey, and a Phoenix Vampire who survived her attack, are the victims of a love potion? I'll tell you - A fun, action-packed, sexually-charged thrill ride of a book!

Ravin is a witch on a mission to get rid of every vampire in existence, even at the cost of her soul. Lending her soul to Himself, aka the devil, has helped heighten her powers so that she has the chance at accomplishing her goal. All she has to do is do three favors for Himself and her soul will be hers once more. To Ravin, that is a small price to pay. Her life is centered around killing vampire, that is, until she falls in love with one.

Nicholas Drake was once a respectable doctor and now he's a respectable leader of a vampire tribe. That all changes when Ravin attempts to murder him and his fellow members. He is nearly on death's door, but manages to survive contact with the witches blood which should mean instant death to a vampire. This makes him stronger, faster..it makes him a Phoenix. His mission now is to make the witch that did this to him pay. What he doesn't expect is to be the victim of a love spell. After spilling the witches potion, he falls instantly in love with Ravin.

Now the two must choose to battle their desires or throw caution to the wind and embrace this new found love. Problem is, what happens when the spell wears off? Will Nicholas still be in love with Ravin or will she lose the man she has grown to love? What will happen when his tribe members find out? Will their love mean the end of them both?

This book is full of action, danger, and romance. It started off a little slow but mid-way through, it truly came together and I could not peel myself away until the very end! I cannot wait to read part two: The Devil To Pay!

This book is rated 4 Fangs:

Have you read this series? This is my first book by Michele Hauf, but not my last. What book have you read that was released eons ago and you are just discovering it for the first time?

I read this book this last year and my take on it is actually completely opposite of yours. The things you found excellent I found irritating. I haven't given up on this author. This is the only book I've read from her but will give her another shot. The review I did on this book is here.... http://crysteena73.blogspot.com/2011/06/kiss-me-deadly-by-michele-hauf.html
I enjoyed reading your review even if I don't necessarily agree ;)

Hi Christina! I just read your review and it rocked, although I actually liked the book. It is so funny and interesting how 1 book could get a million different opinions :-) One thing that I think everyone could agree on is that Himself totally made the book :-)

Loved your blog!
