ONE BITE PER NIGHT
Ann’s delightful vampire world is a fun place to stop for a swift, lively evening’s enjoyment. Yes, it is a dark world, but with Ann’s propensity for subtle humor and eccentric characters, it’s an enchanting world as well. The story is enlivened with characters from previous books, a trio of wild and wacky seamstresses, boxers and vampires.
As Lord Vampire of Cornwall, Vincent Tremayne has plenty of reasons to keep secrets and stay away from society and its games. However, when the dowager countess asks him to take her American granddaughter on as his ward and launch her into society, he agrees. He is sure he can catch a far better husband for Lydia Price, but he must act quickly lest the intelligent young American uncover his secrets. Vincent comes to actually enjoy her company and even as he pushes her away, she draws closer — moving into his world and his heart. (SOURCEBOOKS, Aug., 384 pp., $6.99)
