Are blind dates supposed to be this bloody?
A Secret McQueen Story
They say it's impossible to find a man in New York City. Secret McQueen needs to find two in one night. Of course, it’ll mean pulling off the impossible—find and kill a displaced rogue vampire without disrupting the first promising date she’s had in ages. As a werewolf hybrid used to walking a fine line of survival in the vampire world, though, Secret eats impossible for breakfast.
Somewhere between hello and the first round of drinks, Secret makes her move. Her target, Hollywood’s biggest star, shouldn’t be hard to spot. Just look for swarms of fans. Except every time her vampire liaison, Holden, helps keep her mission on track, her date runs further off the rails.
Either Holden has a hidden agenda, or he knows more than he’s letting on about her quarry. One way or another, Secret is determined to get her man, and meet Mr. Right. Or die trying.
Warning: This book contains a sword-wielding assassin whose barbs are sharper than her blade, a vampire with serious brooding issues but a skilled tongue, and an A-lister with a bad habit of eating his fans. This novella takes place approximately one year prior to the events of Something Secret This Way Comes.
This morning, I decided to get stuck into this book on my Kindle. It happens to be the prequel novella for the very awesome Secret McQueen series.
Secret's friend has set her up on a blind date, and she's quite surprised when she finds herself really warming towards the detective, Tyler. However, because her life is never easy, her vampire liaison, Holden, has also handed her a new job. So, she soon finds herself juggling her date with trying to kill a rogue vampire--who also happens to be a Hollywood star--and things don't go as smoothly as she'd hoped.
Man, this was so much fun! I loved finding out about the infamous subway incident that's mentioned in the first book. It's so cool, and action-packed. Secret takes a lot of hits, and not all of them are physical.
This is fast becoming one of my favourite UF series. So it's a good thing that I've got the second book already on my Kindle. ;) Can't wait!
