Her Vampire Husband (Wicked Games #3) by Michele Hauf

An arranged marriage between a werewolf and a vampire.

There will be blood.

She may resist his bite, but she can't resist his charms...

Werewolf princess Blu Masterson won't allow her seductive vampire husband to consummate their marriage with his bite, marking her forever. Alone in a secluded estate with her sworn enemy, Blu curses the marriage arranged to bring their rival nations together, especially since Creed Saint-Pierre calls out to her most feral desires.

When Blu uncovers her pack's secret plot to destroy the vampire nation—and Creed—she is forced to confront her growing feelings for her sexy undead husband. Will she choose the only life she's ever known or accept his vampire bite?
If you are a fan of paranormal this is a book for you. I wasn't expecting too much from this one but I was pleasantly surprised that despite of cheesy title the book was actually pretty good.
Blu is a werewolf princess, female werewolves are rare and the fact that her father is willing to let her marry a vampire shows that werewolves seriously want peace between the two nations so vampires must compromise and hence Creed volunteers to marry her. As it turned out the marriage was a sham both sides were secretly planning against each other and it was all just for the show to distract the council.
Blu and Creed hate each other. Blu doesn't want to stay with her vampire husband forever but she also doesn't want to go back to the pack, where she was treated badly just because she was a woman among alpha males, at least her husband seemed to respect her and that was the first thing which caused her to change her opinion about vampires, they weren't all bad after all.
On the other hand Creed, although hated Blu but still thought she was hot, really hot that is, with her colourful wigs and outrageous wardrobe, he is instantly attracted to her. Creed is old, he had lived nine centuries and wasn't used to the young people, who seemed to have no manners at all but then Blu came and showed him how to have some fun by loosening up a little.
I loved both Blu and Creed. Both characters are well written and truly compliment each other. while reading one would think, "Yes! they belong together." may that was the reason I loved this book so much because otherwise the story was quite usual paranormal, where, werewolves and vampires hate each other, plot against and fight, there is some witchcraft thrown in there as well. In the end though both sides realise that compromise is the best option.
