Review Black Heart by Karyn Gerrard

Title: Black Heart (Blackthorne Clan #3)
Author: Karyn Gerrard
Source: Author request 
Genre: Paranormal romance
Length: Novella 
Reviewed by: Laurie 

Head of the Blackthorne Clan, Deegan Black has known heartache and pain. A dangerous and powerful Ancient Vampire, Deegan has learned to control much more than his clan. Is he powerful enough to deny the Mate Bond he feels for Raylene Nightwood?
Raylene is a Dhampyre, and the daughter of his blood brother, Raynor, who for decades has yearned for Deegan Black, only to be coldly rebuffed. Can the tragedies and complications the clan experiences bring them together, or threaten to tear them apart forever?
Raylene awakened feelings in him he thought he would not have again. Deegan considered these passions to be little more than vampiric mythology. She awakened heart.
Be Warned: spanking, brief m/m sex.

Black Hart is the third installment of the Blackthorne Clan. The author delivers an emotional ride with this story. Deegan has been friends with Raylene's father for centuries now. When Raylene was a child she called Deegan uncle so needless to say he has some issues to get passed so he can really see Raylene as his mate. I really liked both Raylene and Deegan, but at the start of the book I wasn’t too fond of the chemistry between them so it took me a while to warm up to them and really notice the sparks. I believe it’s because both have been though a lot.  I loved reading about Raylene's parents and her brother. The M/M part is between Raylene's brother Julian and Marcus, the author doesn’t go into much detail with the sex.

I recommend this to anyone who loves emotional and hot novellas. I also only recommend this book and series to more what I like to call hard core paranormal readers. These vampires don’t sparkle they do kill, so be warned. 

Stand alone or read in series order? Standalone.
