I really like these short novella's, they have action, sexual tension and conflict. The hero is a werewolf who wants revenge for his family's death and to do that he needs the heroine, dubbed the Blood Queen and who has been under some spell for fifteen years. So he frees her and bonds her to his blood.
The heroine is super strong and not what people made her out to be. She is not evil instead she had to kill to protect herself from her father and husband and that event got her the name Blood Queen. She is also part-witch and her blood powerful, that is what made the hero's half brother imprison her besides sabotage from within her coven that helped bring her down.
I liked the conflict, someone as powerful as her forced to depend on the hero. He like everyone else needs blood from her and she sees his memories. But he tells her that he never counted her while thinking of using her as an instrument of revenge and offers her a choice. I liked how he was willing to go the distance to make her give them a chance.
