A Midnight Infatuation by Christie Silvers

A Midnight Infatuation is the first book in the Alex & Fiona series. The story is about a 150 year-old vampire named Alex, who falls madly in love (at first sight) with a human named Fiona. He begins to follow her around, and finds out that she's no ordinary human, but a werewolf (which explains the scent of wet dog he kept smelling).

Fiona does not know of Alex's existence, or that he was stalking her. All she knew was that she sometimes smelled a weird scent, kind of like something dead. Either way, she has no time to worry about it because she finds out that the councilmen from her pack have decided to force upon her the wed or die law; where a female were who refuses to wed and mate with the were chosen to her, must fight to the death for her freedom. Fiona is 30, way past time she mated, and thus the rule is forced upon her. Needless to say, things don't go too well for Fiona, and Alex has no choice but to turn her. Thus turning her into a vampire-were hybrid, the first of their kind. Can Fiona adjust to her new life? Will those in her pack tolerate it? And can Alex help his beloved through this strange transition into vampire-werewolf existence?

I'm really glad that I finally had the time to finish this book. It was a really good story, with a few unexpected twists. The author's voice was very different than what I'm used to, a first person POV unlike any other I've read before. Thank you Christie, for sharing your story with me.
