Paranormal Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance
Her life on hold for a decade, Meghan's ready to take it back and move forward. Valor is ready too. The Vampire Master won't let her disappear, not ever again.
Meghan doesn't understand the dreamwalker who comes to her at night. After years of sleeping medication to subdue nightmares, she is unprepared when the handsome stranger who stood guard over her childhood returns to her dreams. Now that she's grown, he's intent on possession and seduction. When he shows up in her life, real and not a dream, she's horrified…and enthralled.
But life isn't waiting around for Meghan to play out the traditional script of meeting, falling in love and living happily ever after. Desperate to reclaim some part of her childhood, Meghan leaves behind the man who wants her in search of her long-lost brother. But Valor is not a man who is willing to be left behind, not again. The years he spent unable to find Meghan—not knowing if she was happy, healthy or even safe—were difficult enough.
He'll find Meghan and bring her into a world she doesn't even imagine exists, and he'll find a way to keep her at his side—forever. Because he's not just some man Meghan met in a library. Valor isn't a man at all.

What happens when dreams come to life? Elle Q. Sabine explores the links between our unconscious and conscious minds.
For the first eighteen years of her life, Meghan Quinn dreamed of a warrior who vowed to protect her. Then, when tragedy struck and she needed him to fulfill his promise, he wasn't there. Valor has waited a millennium for his vamp and was overcome with joy when he felt her enter the world. He immediately moved to establish an outpost in her world near where she lived so he could watch over her and wait for her to grow up. When she was eighteen, he left for a short trip home to get courting advice from his mother. He returned to find her gone and her mind closed to him.
Ten years later, Meghan ventures off the antidepressants and sleeping pills that she has been living on. She is ready to face the nightmarish murder of her parents and track down the only family she has left. Valor, once more able to hear her thoughts, tracks her down. This time, he has no intention of losing her.
Meghan, on the other hand, has no intention of letting him derail her plans. She means to track down her brother Red and see if she can be a part of his life. Even if it means leaving Witness Protection and attracting the attention of a killer. Everything comes to a head as it turns out that Red's new job is for Valor and Valor might be more involved with the events of ten years ago than even he knows.
HUNT HER is fast paced and has a well laid out plot with no holes. Ms. Sabine has taken the novel approach of creating vampire fay. Her vampires are Tuatha Dannan whose people became immortal blood drinkers as a side effect of a serum that saved them from a deadly plague. They then learned to travel the Sidhe or between space in their quest for mates as the serum had killed their own women. Yet Valor's stalking of Meghan, his overly possessive behaviour, and his wish to dominate her are never fixed by her love. Which does add a depressing kind of realism to the story.
Valor's behaviour is excused by his extra-human abilities and his abiding love for Meghan. He is more than human so it is okay for him to act like he owns her. Ms. Sabine even claims this relationship as one between equals. It is hard to like Valor or see Meghan's acceptance of his behaviour as a happy ending. Still, if you like alpha males, Ms. Sabine spins a good yarn and while Valor never learns his lesson he does get his happily ever after.
