A local theme park used to have a pair of dueling roller coasters. From a distance, or even up close, it looked like one ride. However, it was actually two separate intertwined coasters, each with its own line, its own cars, and its own experience. Jordan K. Rose's “A Vampire's Passion” is the novella equivalent of this ride – two different stories in what appears to be one novella – except they're really NOT intertwined. Rather, the first tale – psychological / adventure / horror – evolves into the second, a romance with a little humor, while you're reading. We open with Brandt and Garrison, two vampires in Central City, hiding in an alley, keeping a close eye on a local restaurant. They're not hunting victims – well, not THEIR victims – but instead are trying to determine if the questionable meetings that are occurring inside will have a detrimental effect on them and their kind. The mood changes when “The Chef” emerges, in the process of berating waitress Rachel – at least Brandt's mood changes ... This story is part of a larger cycle. It CAN be read as a standalone (which is how I got it), but it appears to lose a lot without the necessary background from earlier books. The reader is quickly drawn into the scene, however, and sufficient background provided for even the newest series reader (like me) to catch up. (Whether this acts as a spoiler for earlier books when read out of order is yet to be determined.) I must call out the ending and praise author Ms. Rose for it. The conclusion of this book is probably the most sudden and shortest of ANY work of fiction I've ever read, and that covers the gamut of epic novels to short stories. Normally, this triggers a pet peeve of mine, and it indicates an author who simply doesn't know how / when to end their story. HOWEVER – in “A Vampire's Passion”, the conclusion is entirely appropriate, it properly summarizes and concludes the work, and it should be cited in writing texts as a creative example of bringing closure to a work of fiction. I have read two short pieces from this author, and am eagerly awaiting the opportunity to dive into a full-length novel – once we the readers can convince her to write one! RATING: 4 stars, with the ending successfully upgrading the book from 3 1/2 stars. DISCLOSURE: This book was provided free of charge in return for an honest and prompt review.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is the third novella in this series, and I am in love! It picks up right where the previous one left off, and Jordan didn't disappoint! It included some of the wonderful characters from the previous novellas, and introduced us to some new ones, while continuing to unfold the mystery of what is really going on in Panthera. The dynamic between Brandt and Rachel is intriguing and brilliantly written. I devoured this book in no time, and you're sure to love it!
