This really is a fun series. Yes, some say it's full of "Vamp clichés," but I'm not picky when it comes to that. Part of liking Vamp books, I expect the basics, no reflections and all that. The author has done a great job with all of the elements that she incorporates in this series. It's a mixture of perilous situations with a lot of comic relief.Read more ›
Catching up 8 days after the finale of Millionaire Vampire, the Stake-Out team is still up to their usuaul tricks. Sent to spy on the Digital Vampire Network in hopes that it will reveal the location of Shana, the head of Stake-Out's daughter, Austin Erikson spies something he likes in the form of Darcy. He falls totally in love at first site.
Now that Roman's harem has been kicked out thanks to Shana, Darcy is being allowed the opportunity to work again- as long as its in the vampire community. Gregori has implored her to get the rest of the harem out of his house ASAP. So when her new boss is set to fire her for being female she coerces him into keeping her with the idea of a reality show. The Sexiest Man on Earth will be the winner of millions of dollars, the disfunctional harem, and the darling of female vamps everywhere. Only Darcy is adding a secret twist-5 of the contestants are human!
Seeing their chance to infiltrate vampires, Austin & Garret are assigned by Stake-Out to infiltrate the show as contestants. When the spies beat vampires in the challenges their getting closer & closer to winning the competition. Austin's main goal though is to solve why Darcy went missing four years ago, figure out if she's human or vamp, & get a lot closer to her with the aid of the penthouse hot tub...
This was a very quick but great read,especially after the show starts taping. I cried at the end as well, but something in the resolution of the story was missing for me. Oh, well! We're sure to get to see more of these fantastic characters in the next book in the series. Bring it on as fast as you can please!
Vamps and the City by Keerelyn Sparks, is rather generic for vampire romance but it is positive and uplifting, so I was happy to read it; And for having purchased it. The world seems to be set in modern times but Ms. Sparks does very little to flesh out the world past it having vampires. The vampires themselves are somewhat rigidly set according to the fictional rules set by Stoker's Dracula. Authors that create seemingly unique cryptology for vampires for their stories I find more interesting.
Of course, very little is actually unique; Though a great deal is unique enough to my finite experience.
The vampyres in this novel follow all the old rules except being soulless and having to kill their victims. The antagonists are members of a black budget CIA covert affairs group that call themselves "Stake Out". Their motto is "the only good vampyre is a dead one". This being a romance story, of course there is more to the story. Except not much more.
After finishing with reading the novel I realized that this is a second book in a series. So it is useful to note it is an abundantly self-contained story. Overly-so in my humble opinion; I was hoping for a story or two continuing Darcy and Austin's life. Though I am also grateful there is not for reasons that I should leave vague.Read more ›
