Synopsis (Goodreads):
Vampire Sebastian Ellingham wants one thing: to marry Tessa Blythe, the Valkyrie he's fallen madly in love with/ So meeting her parents seems like the natural thing to do. He's even looking forward to it, until he discovers they've already found her a husband. Now the only way to keep Tessa in his life is to complete a series of tests meant for a very different kind of supernatural. And failing means losing her forever.
Thoughts on The Vampire's True Love Trials: This short story reminded me how much I enjoy the wacky shenanigans of the residents of Nocturne Falls. I haven't read Sebastian and Tessa's book yet (something I plan on fixing mighty soon), but I do like a good romance starring cross-species lovers. Vampires and Valkyries, OH MY!

I wasn't as enamored of Tessa's parents choosing her future husband for her, but different strokes for different folks, I guess. When your family is all about carrying on the Valkyrie/Berserker bloodlines and you don't seem to have any prospects, an arranged marriage could be viewed as a good thing. Too bad Tessa already has her dude. I'm thinking she should have told her parents about Sebastian at some point before, but...SHENANIGANS!

Vampires and Valkyries, my friends. They work for me.
