So Mama Argeneau sets out to give Lissianna the perfect present - one sexy male tied up and waiting. Well, Lissianna wants Mr. Right, not just Mr. Available. She's tired of her vamp immortal life, and would like someone to share it with. Lissianna has other problems, such as her fainting at the sight of blood, an annoying trait for a vampire. For a Birthday gift, Mama has gone out and fetched Dr. Gregory Hewitt, used mind control to get him to tuck himself up in the trunk of her car, and now has him tied up nekkid on Lissianna's bed. Wouldst that all mums were so obliging on birthdays!
Greg was planning a much-needed vacation. The last he recalls is leaving the office and planning on getting away. Instead, he wakes up in a stranger's bedroom. Well, he's male - this cannot be all bad. Okay, she's a vampire romance may be a bit difficult to work out, but to quote Joey Brown in Some Like it Home, "nobody's perfect.Read more ›
Definately a book for anyone who wants to laugh, cry and has a weekend to spare as you will not be able to put this book down.
As my title states, it was ok. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great. It read as if you were expected to know the back history of the Argeneau Vampires and didn't really feel as if it worked as well as it could have done as a stand alone book. While it may be number one in the reading order, I don't think it works as an introduction to Lynsay Sands' Vamp world.
Lissiana is a 200 year old vampire who is hemaphobic causing her to faint at the sight of blood. This being quite a handicap for a vampire prompts her mother to kidnap psychologist Dr Gregory Hewitt in the hopes that he can help rid her of her phobia. Later the couple are forced to escape her family home at the prospect of Greg having his memory wiped (or worse, having his brain scrambled in the process because he has been over exposed to their world).
- It was fast moving. It didn't bog the reader down with needless details.
- The vampires seem very ordinary in their daily lives which makes them easy to relate to as a reader. They are written in a very modern style.
- Lissiana seems to be a very childlike and I found her hard to enjoy.Read more ›
The main characters were delightful and true to how I would imagine a crisis inspired turning would play out. The family was eclectic and the night life...original...I'll never look at a Bloody Mary the same!
It's a fun read and fast going. A great filler or for those short trips. Easy to be interrupted and yet still be able to get back into it with ease
A fresh take on the vampire genre, nothing too dark or angsty, and an interesting new view on vampire origins
The most "normal" people who just happen to be vampires, it was quite refreshing to read.
It never took itself too seriously, but some of the secondary characters that were mentioned, have made me curious, such as Lucien, Bastien and Thomas.
At the start, there were possibly too many characters introduced, it took me awhile to get them all sorted right in my head.
All in all, a nice enjoyable read, that is not overly taxing to read, or where I am dreading turning the page due to too much drama!
