Kissing Phoenix by Shona Husk

kissing phoenix Blurb:

When Lilith fell into lust with musician Aidan, she never expected it to last. And she was right. Her doctor has given her months to live, and telling Aidan is the hardest thing she’s ever done.

Aidan has been keeping his own secret. He is a Vampire . . . but he can’t turn Lilith to save her. The solution he proposes is illegal and dangerous and breaks every rule set up to protect non-humans from humans. He doesn’t care. He will do anything to save the woman he loves.

Discovering the kiss of a Vampire and reveling in the erotic thrill, Lilith realizes her feelings are deeper than lust. But is giving up her humanity worth it?

This one was different. I liked the take on vampires – that they don’t have to have blood – Very different than most.

I also liked that the couple had to deal with a problem that was much bigger than “being different” – the heroine was dying of cancer. The hero didn’t have the ability to cure her with vampirism (unlike almost all other vampire romances). I loved the complexity of the entire situation.But all in all, it just wasn’t satisfying for some reason. Maybe it was too shallow (this is a novella) for such deep subjects or maybe it was the complete lack of wish fulfillment in the relationship? I can’t put my finger on it, however. It just left me wanting.
