Dobs has waited forever for his beloved, yet when he finds out the one he has been waiting for is a shape-shifter, he walks away.  When he begins to weaken, Dobs’ friends take things in to their own hands to bring the two together.

The Vampire’s Special Lover is the sixteenth book in author Charlie Richards The Wolves of Stone Ridge series, and is probably one of my favorites.  I loved Frankie when he was first introduced to the series and was hoping he would get a story of his own.  When the author paired him up with Dobs, I was a little surprised.  Dobs is an enforcer for the Vampire Council and he’s also highly prejudice against shape-shifters.  With Frankie being such a gentle soul, I could not see this pair up working, yet it soon becomes clear that Frankie is just what the vampire needs. 

The care in which Dobs must use to ensure that Frankie understands what he is saying when they talk allows the vampire to realize that not all shape-shifters are the evil monsters his father led him to believe.  Unfortunately, Dobs’ issues aren’t the only ones the men must face.  When the vampire’s past comes back to haunt him, Frankie shows just how well he is able to care for his mate.  I love the way Frankie comes into his own, stepping away from being someone his brother usually watches over, to becoming someone who will do whatever they must to rescue his mate.

The Vampire’s Special Lover is a great addition to this ongoing series.  While fans are sure to love it, it is also a great book for those who have not yet tried this author to pick up.
