I was curious about "vampire romances" and picked up this book. After reading the synopsis on the back cover, I figured I was getting a vampire romance. The first few chapters were riveting, I was enthralled with Alexander, the vampire. You cannot imagine my disappointment when he turned out to be an alien. Yes, he was still sexy and entralling, but I wanted a vampire, not an alien. Had I known he was an alien, I would have not bought the book, and I felt cheated. The writing was not great, and I didn't really care for Kara. I haven't given up on Amanda Ashley (M. Baker) - I plan to pick up one of her her "real" vampire novels this time.
