WOW. I have to admit I didn’t recognize the author’s name at first when I received this book. Meg is well know for her series, the princess diaries, and not my usual read.
Just the name alone is enough to intrigue one to look beyond the beautifully designed cover, but once you do; you’ll be glad you did. Vampires. Doesn’t it seem we have enough books for them, with them and about them? I may have thought so, scared that I might find the same old conflict of good and evil; not expecting to find the absolutely unexpected.
Meg brings us laughter. Her seemless writing and delightfully seductive storyline entices the reader to gallop through the pages with unabashed and unbridled abandon.
Enter our heroine, Meena Harper; writer for a daytime soap opera and the woman who knows how you will eventually meet your demise. Not exactly a good skill to have and certainly a damper on her dating life.
She’s always had a hard time seeing a future with any of the men in her life, until him. The night she meets Lucien Antonescu everything changes when she sees nothing at all, which only makes her want to see him more and more.
This educated, handsome and refined man seems to be perfect, too perfect. What might seem to be her dream man, might just turn out to be her biggest nightmare.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and all of it’s exciting twists and turns. The soap opera spin on things was fresh and funny. It made me rememeber soaps like ALL MY CHILDREN and GENERAL HOSPITAL, leading ladies like Susan Lucci, and scenes both bold and ridiculous all at the same time.
Don’t get me wrong, this was not a slapstick comedy. It was sultry and steamy when need be and a breath of fresh air. The concept and writing was original and ultimately left me wanting for more.
A must read.
