Beck doesn’t consider herself a tree-hugger. With her multi-colored dreadlocks and her combat boots, she’s more at home in a club than in the woods. Then she falls for Jordan, a handsome vampire who remembers Earth’s past and wants to save its future. But will Jordan’s friends accept Beck’s help? Or will they decide that humans are the problem – and the solution is wiping them out?

I really enjoyed this short story. While there was a lack of a full history between how the vampires came to live side by side with humans, without hiding, I feel that I wasn’t left wanting to know too much more due to how into the story I got. I’m interested to see what the author’s take on that situation is though, it’s one of the things I enjoy in a paranormal setting; “How did this world come to be how it is?” sort of thing. The environmental message/theme in the story was a nice touch. It added to the story by giving it a place to move toward, and at the same time provided the readers with a little hint at “we CAN help out the planet,” without the message sounding at all preachy or overbearing. On top of this is a nice gentle presented romance. This and all the other elements came together nicely in a few thousand words that made me glad I picked this one up.
