Kresley Cole, A Hunger Like No Other: The premise sounds goofy--immortal Scots werewolf name Lachlain rips himself free of centuries of torture because he senses his mate, Emmaline, who turns out to be half-vampire, half-Valkyrie--but is a lot of fun. There's that pesky kidnapping plot again, but as with Anna Campbell's Claiming the Courtesan, the characters had enough complex emotional issues that I kept reading, and ended up enjoying the book quite a bit. By the end, Emma was a great character who'd discovered her powers of kicking ass. I also loved her wacky Valkyrie aunts, who in my opinion needed their own reality show. If they were, like, real.
