Murdina, a dark vampiric fey, hunts the Scottish Highlands for a man, but not for blood, Murdina wants love. She spots Cameron playing the bagpipes, and when a strong wind lifts his kilt, she takes a good look and decides he's the one. When Cameron meets a beautiful, mysterious woman who dances the Highland fling for him, his blood boils for her. Soon Murdina and Cameron are doing more than dancing. Wrapped in each other's arms, they discover true love, but their time together is limited before Murdina's fey sisters cross the portal to steal her back and probably kill him. Is their love strong enough to overcome the threat her sisters pose to Murdina's heart and to Cameron's life?
Vampire Highland Fling is another quick sexy read when you don't have a lot of time. The story has a good plot and contains some Scottish mythology and it was fun to learn a little bit about it.
Murdina wants what her sister Sorcha found, love. She doesn't know what love feels like but she's willing to find out. Only able to underhill when the stones of the ancient cairn are disturbed, Murdina sneaks out without her sisters knowing.
After playing the bagpipes at a wedding, Cameron comes upon a beautiful woman who begins to dance as he plays for her. He's immediately enchanted by her graceful movements. Murdina is delighted that this man is so muscular and handsome. They are instantly attracted to each other and Murdina wants to stay with Cameron.
Murdina is determined and goes after what she wants, I liked that about her. Cameron is also very likable, immediately trying to think of a way he can support her. He was very unselfish in that respect. I wanted to see them be together so they could be happy.
I know Ms. Amiri doesn't have much influence on the art that goes on the cover, but this cover is somewhat misleading in that the story contains female and not male vampires. As a reader first and a reviewer second, it's really frustrating when the cover has nothing to do with the story. I still found Vampire Highland Fling a pleasant and enjoyable read.
