Great story with lots of steam and plenty of humour.
I've now read several of Angels Knights books and can't wait for more!!
Warning to little old ladies and those faint of heart: move along lil' doggie, for Knight is a sizzling red-hot writer! For those with a more daring soul, Knight is what the doctor ordered. She is a savvy writer that can weave a tale that keeps her reader hooked the whole way. Small wonder this full novel is the first Red Sage non-anthology. Knight came up through Red Sage; they gave her the break, now it's her turn to shine. Since several of her Red Sage Novella's were vampire themes, it's not surprising she leads us into the vampire realm once again.
Edward Ridgemont, a sadistic vampire who loves the hunt and the kill, turned Cade McKinnon. For years, Cade has served as a shadowy protector for Valerie Chase. Vampires killed her family and would have killed her, too, but "The Cowboy" came to her rescue.
At seventeen, she begins to experience flashback nightmares. Anytime her dreams were too troubled "The Cowboy" was there to reassure her. Now, twenty-nine, a full-grown woman, "The Cowboy" still haunts her adult dreams, but as a seductive lover, giving her nights of erotic pleasure. Only, Cade is forced to move to protect her. Edward Ridgemont has decided to take Valerie for his own. and has hired her to ghost his biography, as a means to lure her to him. Cade tries to warn Valerie through her dreams. When that does not work, he tries to call her sister, but since Valerie believes Cade only exists in her nightmares and fantasy, she will not believe it. In order to save her, Cade abducts her. At first, Valerie is not too alarmed by this, until she learns Cade is a vampire, too. Now Valerie is caught between her passion for Cade, the real man, and her revulsion for vampires. She must learn to trust Cade and make the ultimate choice to save both their lives.
I especially enjoy Knights' "remaking" of the vampire. I have always had problems with the evil killers who slurp blood nightly, always found it strange a woman would love a man who went out and "necked" with other women constantly! But Knight wisely addresses these and makes the vamp a much more enjoyable character.
This book bites - sorry for the pun - but it's right on target. Proving Knight is one of the strongest writers in red-hot romance today. She has a strong voice, is able to take old tales and make them fresh. So if you are an Angela Knight fan, you must have this one. If you are a vampire fan, you need to order this stylish tale. Not a Knight a fan yet, and have a daring soul, then don't hesitate to get acquainted with this Southern Belle who eschews fiddliedees and goes straight to
erotic with a capital E.
