The Rough Mating of a Vampire by J.S. Scott

Adare Connor is a vampire, the oldest of his kind to ever find his mate. Kristin Sparks, a human, owns his soul. (literally) In a rough, wild and volatile mating, Kristin will return his soul to him, making them bonded mates. Adare knows that the mating will bring out every carnal, possessive and dominant instinct he has. It's the nature of vampire matings. Will his destined mate be able to withstand the rough mating with a vampire of his age and power, or will it crush the love she has for him? Come along to the mating ceremony and find out in "The Rough Mating Of A Vampire" and see if Adare and Kristin get their HEA.

Where to Buy

A quick story that obviously is mostly just meant to present a hot sex scene and serve as something of an introduction for a new series. Thin on characterization, which is only to be expected, it's hard to really feel the intense emotions that Kristin and Adare supposedly have for one another. Still, they are intriguing enough as characters to make you wish there was more to their story. How did they meet? What are they like as people? We get some sense of the latter, but not enough. Perhaps in the series proper we'll see more of them and get to know them better.

The sex is hot, but over a lot more quickly than I'd expected, and not really as rough as I'd expected either. He does restrain her hands through most of it, but there aren't any BDSM elements besides that, and while the sex is fast, hard, and rough, it's far from brutal. From the description I'd expected something more violent that would seriously endanger her, but such is not the case. As such, it was a bit disappointing.

Pretty standard basic premise for the world/series, but it might be worth a look. I'm not sure yet if I'll read more of it or not, but I'm at least willing to consider doing so.
