Book Blurb

They know a thousand ways to kill...and zero ways to love.

The middle bunny of five, Beaumont has grown used to going unnoticed. He's not a leader like Barclay or Basil, he's not blind like Bailey, and he's not snarky like Baxter. He's invisible. He dreams of finding a mate that truly sees him. When a stranger with piercing black eyes arrives at the mansion, his world is turned upside down, and Beau has to decide if being seen is all he dreamed it would be.

Prince Dario Montella never dreamed he would find his one and only in his family home, but one look and he knows he has found the center of his universe. But Beau comes with a lot of baggage, not to mention an interfering older brother and an obsessive need to take risks with his life.

Finding common ground won't be easy for a prince used to ruling his coven, especially when making his mate happy is harder than letting him walk into danger. It means seeing Beau for the treasure he truly is.

 

Book Review

Now that the scene has been set in the first two books of the ‘Battle Bunnies’ series, this third book begins to add more mystery, a prophesy, and more than one revelation to the ever-thickening plot. With Beaumont, the middle of the five bunny shifter brothers, and Dario, the newly appeared vampire prince, at its center, this continuing story of trying to stop the evil scientists reaches new heights of suspense and their plans new lows of despicability. What a dark and sordid tale, but thanks to the ever-vigilant Battle Bunnies I am keeping my hopes up.

Beaumont definitely has middle child syndrome. Without a defined role among his brothers, and usually seemingly invisible since nobody pays him any attention, I find it fascinating that his ability is “not to be seen” by humans as long as he doesn’t move. I think this is an incredibly useful skill to have when going on covert missions, but not one that is appreciated by anyone. It is no wonder that Beaumont’s one wish in a mate is for that man to “see” him. He can’t believe his luck when the vampire who owns the house the Battle Bunnies are hiding in returns and looks at Beaumont as if he were the center of the prince’s world.

Prince Dario is over the moon to have found his mate. He is ancient and has waited forever, but now that he has finally discovered “his one and only”, he will protect him from any and all danger. Unfortunately the object of his affections has his own ideas, and the prince has to adjust his priorities. His inclusion in the team also adds a lot of knowledge about history, and he is the one who reveals an intriguing prophecy that hints at the Battle Bunnies’ purpose in life.

Beaumont and Dario are a great fit in more than one way, and their initial issues of getting used to each other were funny rather than aggravating. Actually, Beaumont was occasionally mad, but I was extremely amused. I could see how flexible Dario was, despite his appearance as an implacable and tough vampire prince, and enjoyed watching Beaumont figure that out for himself.

If you like the ‘Battle Bunnies’ series, if you want to see a middle child come into his own as soon as he finds the love of his life, and if you’re looking for a read that is as funny as it is suspenseful, then you will probably like this novella.
