Terri Simpson has traveled from England to New York to be her cousin's maid of honor. She doesn't know that Kate is now a vampire and is marrying into a family of vampires. Kate asks her fiancé's brother Bastien to let Terri stay at the Argeneau family penthouse with him for the two weeks before the wedding.

Bastien agrees, not realizing what he is getting himself into—especially when his cousin Vincent shows up with plans to stay there too. Vincent bites Bastien's housekeeper, causing her to quit, and this is just the beginning of the trouble.

This third story about the Argeneau vampires is delightful and full of interesting characters and romance. In this installment, the humor is more understated and more serious facets are skillfully played out. A well-crafted addition to this series. (Jul., 384 pp., $6.99)
