Eight centuries ago, killing Morrigan's favorite warrior netted Connall O'Roarke the curse of immortality and the gaes to always protect the man's descendants until the last one dies. He's been off duty for a few years because his last charge died and the next one hasn't shown up, so he spent his time helping run the Castle of Dark Dreams, Sparkle Stardust's realm of fantasies. Then, he gets word that the last Kavanagh is checking in, so Connall once more has to protect the offspring of the enemy. However, when he meets Gerry, he discovers she's a very attractive woman and a vampire. His duty will now never end, but considering how much he likes her, that is either a blessing or a further curse. Morrigan has also banned him from having relations with a Kavanagh. He might be released sooner than he expects, if whoever is trying to kill Gerry has their way. Between the would-be assassin, Gerry's determination to catch a serial killer, and Morrigan determined to stop them from acting on their desires, life is more interesting than Connall ever wanted it to be.
**** If you need a good laugh, then grab this one posthaste. The secondary plots alone are enough to make it a worthwhile read. Sparkle, Ganymede, Asima, and Fo, the talking cell phone/demon detector, keep you smiling or giggling throughout the story. The main plot is, of course engaging and fun, filled with surprise twists and turns around every corner. I truly look forward to finding out what trouble the cosmic troublemakers will caues next. ****
