Bride by Ali Hazelwood

A dangerous alliance between a Vampyre bride and an Alpha Werewolf becomes a love deep enough to sink your teeth into in this new paranormal romance.

Misery Lark, the only daughter of the most powerful Vampyre councilman of the Southwest, is an outcast—again. Her days of living in anonymity among the Humans are over: she has been called upon to uphold a historic peacekeeping alliance between the Vampyres and their mortal enemies, the Weres, and she sees little choice but to surrender herself in the exchange—again...

Weres are ruthless and unpredictable, and their Alpha, Lowe Moreland, is no exception. He rules his pack with absolute authority, but not without justice. And, unlike the Vampyre Council, not without feeling. It’s clear from the way he tracks Misery’s every movement that he doesn’t trust her. If only he knew how right he was….

Because Misery has her own reasons to agree to this marriage of convenience, reasons that have nothing to do with politics or alliances, and everything to do with the only thing she's ever cared about. And she is willing to do whatever it takes to get back what’s hers, even if it means a life alone in Were territory…alone with the wolf.

3.5/5 stars

This is my first time reading in Ali Hazelwood book, I've seen her rom/coms about but this was a fantasy romance.

Misery Lark is a pawn for her father to do as he pleases. She is forced to marry a werewolf, and what follows is a year of changes.  It is not just the story of her marriage and the new lifestyle she has entered but it's also her search for a long lost friend. Her role has always been a pawn with no control of her own life. It was witty with some good banter, it was mysterious as attempts are made on her life and it was suspenseful as to what the outcome was going to be.

An enjoyable read with some twists, unique world building and relationships but ultimately Misery taking back her life. 

This was part of my 2024 reading off my shelf challenge.
