Kresnik vampire slayer, Corbin Hamilton, has vowed to avenge his father's death and kill the prince of the Red Serpent clan. Instead, he's stuck with guard duty for vampire Johan Maier who is becoming human, thanks to a new serum. What's worse, the sexual attraction between him and his prisoner is getting harder to ignore.
Johan Maier's chance to regain his humanity is a dream come true. If he only he could get Corbin to trust him, they would have a chance at love. Yet, his vampire powers are getting stronger instead of weaker, his blood markers morphing into something that isn't quite human.
As Corbin hunts the prince, Johan insists on aiding him. He secretly vows to protect Corbin even if it means his death.
Viki Lyn’s Fighting Chance was an enjoyable read, and I had no problems getting into the story and feeling for the characters.
Corbin’s goal is to kill the person who killed his father, but he’s stuck with Johan and the feelings Johan evoke. While he’s gay, Corbin sees the Vampire Johan as his enemy and hates himself for wanting him. He puts many barriers between them, but Johan isn’t having it.
Johan wants his humanity back, and so he’s agreed to take a serum he thinks will give him that. Corbin as his jailor isn’t half bad even though the Slayer won’t admit to his feelings.
These two men were great to read as Johan pushed and Corbin pulled. Each has his motivation and goals that the reader can understand and root for. The emotion between them was palpable, and the overall plot of Fighting Chance quite engaging.
