BLURB:Although Nina Decker’s father is one hundred percent human, her mother is not. She belongs to an ancient and rare race of people called the fae. But these fae are not those written about in fairytales, with pretty gossamer wings and fairy dust, no they are sinister, malevolent and unkind, dwelling in another realm called Nightfall. More prone to destroy than to create. Abandoned at the age of ten, to be raised by her father, Nina has never forgiven her mother for that or for ruining her father. A man of only sixty, he appears to be closer to eighty with a frail body and mind. He’s been fae-struck and is slowly fading away to nothing. This is one of the reasons why Nina has never gotten too close to any one man. She doesn’t want to seal his fate like her father’s has been.
But she can’t deny her fiery connection to Severin Saint Morgan, a sexy as hell werewolf and the alpha of the Vancouver wolf pack. He’s an Australian immigrant working at the university as an associate professor, and the publicized face of the werewolf species. He makes her blood boil with desire and makes her tremble with fear. But its only when her mother reappears with startling revelations about an upcoming war between the fae and the werewolves that Nina realizes that she may be a pawn for both sides.
A Nina Decker Novel is a short story with a heck of a lot jam-packed into it. There are so many things to explain in the world the Vivi Anna created that it is almost amazing that she was able to do it so well. This is a world of mythology and ‘normal’ reality all rolled into one. Where werewolves and the fae are realities that normal humans are only recently beginning to realize have existed as long as they have, if not longer.
Nina Decker is a half-human, half-fae nurse pretending to be fully human. With a fae-drunk father who pines for his lost love and a mother that uses that to get what she wants out of Nina, what could a little bit of werewolf love hurt in the grand scheme of things. But attention from the hot werewolf Alpha and her mother’s sudden appearance after many years away can’t be a coincidence. Can Nina protect herself from vindictive fae, manipulative mothers and werewolves with hidden agendas?
This is a good story that draws readers in to the new series. It leaves just enough mystery that you want to know what happens next and leaves you with an appreciation for Vivi Anna as an author.

Five stars are like six-pack abs on a really tan, hunky guy not wearing much. They make us drool, we stroke them (the books, not the guys! - sometimes the guys...) and want to make sweet, sweet love to them. Five stars is the hottest, we mean, highest honor.
Four stars is a total hunkalicious of burning love, but maybe we didn't like his hair for some reason. We still think he's hot, and we're still going to recommend him, we mean, the book, to readers because it's a damn fine ass, we mean book.
Three stars = that awkward guy at the party. He's cute and you know he's cute, and if you look at him the right way, he even looks like Brad Pitt a little, but there are flaws. Surprisingly, he's good in bed (because you got drunk and shit happens).
Remember that - yeah we don't either.
One star is like expecting a somewhat attractive guy and being sent a Grumpy cat meme. We appreciate the effort, but no. This book was not for us. Grumpy cat might want to use it for litter though.
