Sin and Sorrow by Marion Croslydon

O-negative is Marie Aberdein’s favorite treat and she hates herself for it.

But she hates the MacLeod Vampire Hunters even more. They stole everything from her. Twice. The first time, on the night of the Battle of Culloden, the Hunter killed her husband and their child. Marie has survived the last two centuries hidden away with the man she calls Father, keeping their vow never to feed from humans. But the latest Hunter—the direct descendant of her husband’s murderer—doesn’t care about their good intentions. All he wants is for their ashes to blow away in the wind, so he tracks them down and burns the only family she has left.

Payback is long overdue. Marie has escaped the MacLeods’ clutches and she intends to make this lease of life count. Merely digging her fangs into the Hunter won’t do. She’ll take everything he holds dear, starting with his heir, History undergrad and rugby-playing Gabriel. Once she has Gabriel in the palm of her hand, she’ll rip out the boy’s heart. And make his father watch.

Only Gabe is more angel than demon. His heart is warm, his soul loyal. He makes Marie feel like the girl she has never had the chance to be. A girl who wants to laugh, flirt, and be kissed. But allowing their love to kindle will clash against the beliefs that make them who they are. When Gabriel becomes the next Hunter at twenty-one, Marie will be one of the creatures he is destined to slaughter. And loving him means giving up her vendetta against his father—something she won’t do.

Sin and Sorrow is a New Adult paranormal romance set at St.Andrews University in modern-day Scotland.

I started reading Sin and Sorrow on a dark and rainy night which ended up being the perfect timing for this shadowy and imaginative story. I was intrigued from the beginning and found myself completely absorbed in this alluring tale.

Marie Aberdein lost everything because of a Vampire Hunter, a MacLeod Vampire Hunter to be exact, and is set out to get vengeance that is long overdue. She will befriend the daughter and seduce the son of the current MacLeod Hunter, then exact her revenge. What she doesn't realize is that she's been closed off for so long and these two siblings go from strangers to Lizzie and Gabe. Initially her skills in seduction are a little rusty but soon she realizes that Gabe isn't the only one getting attached. Not only that but the Stramos Lawrence Beaumont won't seem to leave her alone because he wants to use the MacLeod siblings for revenge as well, but is that still what Marie wants? 

This story was so well thought out. I loved how dark and mysterious all of the characters were. Each and every one of them had their own secrets that slowly started coming to light. I love the setting as well. I've always felt that there is something mystical about Scotland and love to read any story set there. Plans for revenge get twisted, emotions run rampant, and it's all heading towards an epic showdown! Agony and ecstasy entwine together in this perfectly twisted story!
