I thought I'd read all paranormal possibilities, until I came across this vampire bat shifter romance.
Cassia, who is a vampire bat shifter, met her mate, Sapphire. They have some fun together, but Sapphire was unsure of the whole mate business at first.
There was a group of bat shifters that were abducting what were called "gem witches". There's something special about them that the bat shifter race needed, so a group of them were trafficking the witches. Cassia and Sapphire found themselves caught up in the mess.
The paranormal plot was interesting. I've never read about a bat shifter, let alone a vampire bat shifter. There was all kinds of lore wrapped up in this short story. It was borderline too much for a story so short, but overall I liked the plot and world-building.
Since Cassia was a dominant female bat shifter, she had a "stamen". She essentially had a penis. Which was fine, but when I pick up a F/F book, I'm expecting to read some hot sex scenes full of lady parts. Most of the sex scenes read like a M/F romance. They were hot, just not what I was expecting. Other than the sex, I didn't feel much from Cassia and Sapphire as a couple. They jumped from acquaintances to mates pretty quick and I didn't find their romance particularly believable.
SAPPHIRE was an interesting take on shifters and the plot was good, but the romance a little too underdeveloped for me.
