Curvy Yuliana is a low-born vampire who’s never been with a man. So she’s terrified when the vampire king asks her to make a sacrifice for the kingdom… to become the mate of the Alpha of one of the most powerful shifter packs in existence. The only thing she knows about shifters is that they are huge and dangerous…
But when she sees her new mate, all she wants to do is wrap her legs around his hips.
Leon agreed to take a vampire mate to bring peace to his pack. What he didn’t expect was to be paired with the hottest woman he had ever seen, let alone develop feelings for her.
Is this a trick, a game of war in which Yuliana is only a pawn? Is the vampire king out to get him?
But it's not just the vampires Leon has to worry about. The shifters are angry that he chose to take a vampire as a mate. Before the end of it all, his and Yuliana's bond will be tested.
And if it breaks, everything will be destroyed.

This is a 60-page stand-alone paranormal action story with BBW, arranged marriage, virgin, werewolf, and pregnancy elements. It has an HEA, so no cliff-hangers! This is a HOT story with mature themes and language. For 18+ readers only.
I was so intrigued by the idea of a female Vampire being used as currency in a bid for peace between the Vampires and the Shifters, although frankly I found how they found their Mate to be a little odd. Yuliana is our heroine and at one hundred years old she's still on the proverbial shelf. Not pale and skinny like so many high-born Vampires but curvy with a healthy glow as she inherited some of her mother’s human genes. Yuliana isn't quite sure why the Vampire King has selected her to become Mate to a powerful Alpha Wolf and she may lack experience but Yuliana has courage and bravely agrees.
Leon like so many others is tired of war but doesn't quite trust the cold Vampire King's motives. Still Leon gets a pleasant surprise when he meets Yuliana as she's completely the opposite of the usual female Vampires Leon has seen. Still there's a nagging feeling that something isn't quite right and when a Vampire is caught following the Pack it seems as if there's trickery planned and Leon and Yuliana are slap in the middle of it!
This was pleasant to read although I should point out I spotted numerous typos which at one point meant I couldn't understand quite what the author was saying! Still I liked the ideas with Wolves wearing spandex shorts to accommodate shifting which actually I found quite funny as the author mentioned it looked uncomfortable to have Leon's tail trapped! It's not a comedy though and the romance was almost instant but I think that must have something to do with their Mating bond. Not everyone is happy about Leon being with Yuliana and there's quite a bit of dissent amongst the Shifters which means Leon has to step up to defend his choices. As for the Vampire King, well he might not have been honest with Yuliana and unfortunately actions have consequences.
The Shifter's Vampire is relatively short and I feel it would have been much better if further developed. What I hadn't realised was the copy I received has other stories by this author so I will check those out at a later date and hope the editing problems don't resurface. A sweet romance that isn't too graphic and it's mixed with shocks and surprises; oh and of course, a happy ending.
