Dark Days: Semester 1
by Liz Meldon

A vampire desperate to escape his past. A wolf shifter determined to protect her future.
A killer on the loose.
One year ago, wolf shifter Emma accepted her dream job teaching PE at a Norwegian international school, finally freeing herself from her mother’s incessant matchmaking. As the alpha’s heir, walking away from her pack, from her obligations—potentially even her fated mate­—weighed heavy on her heart. But deep down, she knew it was the right decision.
Unfortunately, her sacrifice may have been for nothing—because the new history teacher has fangs.
With a reputation for kidnapping and selling shifters to research labs, a vampire is the last thing Emma needs in her life, but she refuses to be intimidated. This is her territory and she’s not going anywhere, so that grumpy, gorgeous vampire can suck it.
Forced together at a prestigious boarding school, two supernatural enemies are torn between ripping each other's clothes off…
And ripping each other apart.
Eager for a fresh start, vampire Calder accepts an invitation to teach history at a private school above the Arctic Circle. Its remote location appeals to his sensibilities, and years of practice have taught him how to charm his human colleagues, but a certain gym teacher is seriously trying his last nerve.
All Calder wants to do is teach, so if the strikingly beautiful shifter refuses to see him as anything but the big bad vampire, perhaps he ought to lean into the part and really give her a show.
As summer turns to winter, humans disappear from nearby villages, gone without a trace and presumed missing—or worse.
Only one thing is certain: there are dark days ahead.
Even for creatures of the night.
Dark Days is a standalone enemies-to-lovers paranormal romance duet. While Book 1 has a cliffhanger, all will be resolved with a supernatural happily-ever-after in Book 2.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Enemies to lovers is one of my favorite romance tropes. There's just something about the passion and fireworks of it. Combine that with a lone wolf shifter trying to find her place without her pack and a sexy as sin vampire with a British accent, then season it with the added spice of them being natural enemies, and sparks are bound to fly. Whether they're exchanging barbs or heated kisses, Emma and Calder burn up the pages. Of course, where there's animosity, there's angst, but it's tempered with some hilarious antics and witty banter between this pair. This first part of the duet focuses on the romance, the push and pull between Calder and Emma as the scales tip back and forth between love and hate. There's also a suspense side to this story with a bit of darkness that gradually builds as the book progresses, and on that front, the author pulls out all the stops with a whopper twist that I couldn't have ever guessed. I would advise heeding the cliffhanger warning because Liz Meldon does cliffys like nobody's business, and this one is no exception. After reading that last, jaw-dropping sentence, I'm left tapping my foot, impatiently waiting for the second part of this tale. Cliffhanger aside, Emma and Calder are absolutely delightful from word one. This first part of their story is a wonderful combo of humor, chemistry, and steam hot enough to melt your Kindle. All in all, another great read from this author.
