BE STILL MY VAMPIRE HEART
This addition to Sparks' vampire series is action packed, with drama, humor and wonderfully personable characters. The heroine is strong and independent, and the alpha hero respects that. Previous characters from the series makes appearances, which creates a greatly appreciated thread of continuity.
Psychic Emma Wallace is out to get revenge for her parents' death by vampires. She joins the CIA's Stake-Out team and, unbeknownst to them, becomes a slayer. Then she meets Angus MacKay, a Scottish warrior, vampire and the owner of a security company sent to stop her. Too bad, because Emma finds herself attracted to Angus. But as she learns more about the vampire society, she desperately wants to believe in good vampires, even if she and Angus are marked for death by the vampire Malcontents. (Avon, Apr., 384 pp., $5.99)
