She's the unlikeliest vampire hunter ever. A scientist.
Seventeen-year-old science prodigy Genevieve Quinn never thought she would be kidnapped from her college campus by a vampire. Or that said vampire would want her help on a science project. Genevieve has no intention of complying, but when an escape attempt turns deadly, it is a vampire that comes to her rescue.
Vampire Chad Matthews is an atypical specimen. He’s good-looking, in a dangerous kind of way. But that’s not what attracts Genevieve… it’s the shadows behind his eyes. As Genevieve and Chad team up to find a way to defeat a monster even worse than killer vampires, she discovers that not everything can be explained by science—like falling in love.

I have really enjoyed this series so far and this latest installment, BELOVED ENEMY, is no exception. Genevieve has never really fit in. Too smart and far to young to be in college, she does her best to keep her head down and continue her research into cancer. That is until she is kidnapped and given a research assignment that really intrigues her.
Watching Genevieve come into her own is a real treat. She gains confidence and the attention of a vampire who has his own issues. Chad is a real sweetie but because he doesn't heal like a normal vampire, he is really down on himself and doesn't feel that he is worthy of the plucky little scientist.
BELOVED ENEMY is a shorter novella but there is a surprising amount of character growth that takes place. We are also given the opportunity to check in on some of the leads from earlier novella. It's a quick and satisfying read. I do recommend it to my readers who enjoy paranormal romances. It is robust enough to stand on its own but I do recommend picking up the entire series.
