Strigoi Redemption by K.R. Hall

In Romanian mythology, strigoi are the seventh son of a seventh son. Some strigoi can be living people with certain magical properties such as the ability to transform into an animal, invisibility, and the propensity to drain the vitality of victims via blood loss. Strigoi are the myth behind the modern Bram Stoker vampire.

Victor Marinescu is a strigoi. Victor arrived in America just before the Revolutionary War. The local village elders made a pact that every 20 years they would send the oldest daughter to Victor as a possible mate. In return, Victor would protect the village. Victor had been told by an old gypsy fortune teller that he would find his mate in the village of Carver.

Alana Treunmhor has been educated in everything about Victor and her destiny since her early childhood. Alana has a sympathetic heart. She is understanding Victor even though she has yet to meet him. Victor’s home reminds her of The Great Gatsby. Alana is starting to trust Victor and is letting her guard down.

After almost 700 years Victor finally finds his mate, Alana Treunmhor. He wants to be worthy of Alana’s loyalty and love. He needs to redeem himself. She’s beautiful, perfect, and everything about her is absolutely wonderful.

In trying to redeem himself, Victor has inadvertently made his whereabouts known to the only one who can destroy him and Alana.

My review:
Strigoi Redemption is a different kind of paranormal romance. You can’t live almost 700 years and not have done things you regret. When his foretold mate is born Victor feels it in his bones. When he sees her for the first time he id driven to be worthy of her. This story takes us through Alana’s life and her meeting Victor and their friendship turning to love but like any good tale it doesn’t come easy or without danger. And with Victor’s family filled with unmated brothers perhaps the author will take us back to this world again.
