Paranormal romance fans, this one's for you! It's not deep and it's not going to impress the snobs at cocktail parties. It's just a great example of its genre.
And a very, very yummy one at that!
If you're an old hand at paranormal romance then you'll find yourself on familiar ground. Good guy vamps and bad guy vamps are secretly at war and humans end up in the crossfire. Human Sarah saves a good guy vamp and finds herself in the thick of things, and a lot of action and very steamy romance ensues. This was just what I was in the mood for, and I ate it right up!
I liked that Sarah wasn't just a damsel in distress. She's not the type to cower in the corner or be pushed aside. Another reviewer didn't like that these vampires are environmentally concerned and have to take care of themselves. I loved that part, and found it very refreshing! It makes so much sense that immortals would care about the earth, since they'll live forever in any mess they've created. I've always wondered why that doesn't come up in more books! (Or maybe I'm just daydreaming about a guy making me an organic salad. OK, both.)
The narrator's fantastic. This was the first time I've heard her, and she was good enough to bump up other books in my queue just because she narrated them. It's not always easy to read steamy books without sounding silly or overdone, but she handled it perfectly!
Highly recommended for paranormal romance fans. If you're not a romance fan, pass right on by.
