Xavier Agueda has hoped to find his soul mate for over four hundred years and when he meets Detective Owen Hanson, it looks like his dream has come true. The problem—Owen’s deeply in the closet. Xavier’s coven leader is happy to help him and gets a mutual friend to schedule a BBQ so the two men can meet again. Can Xavier convince the closeted cop to take chance and act on their mutual attraction? And what’ll happen when Owen learns Xavier’s a vampire?

Changing Owen’s Mind is the latest book in Charlie Richards’ series, A Paranormal’s Love. Reading the books in order would be best, but at least read A Bite of Fulfillment first.

I like Xavier and Owen and meeting them in the previous release helps because this story is short at about 62 story pages. It’s actually amazing how well developed their personalities are considering the length. Having them meet at a BBQ is a nice touch and it’s a good opportunity to include characters met previously. 

The overall pacing is smooth, the imagery vivid and there’s just enough danger and conflict to keep it interesting. My niggle is Owen’s quick acceptance of Xavier and their mating after his initial reluctance. Even so, I enjoyed the story and look forward to the next one. Could it possibly be Owen’s son, Nate?
