VACATION WITH A VAMPIRE
VACATION WITH A VAMPIRE (4) by Michele Hauf, Kendra Leigh Castle & Lisa Childs: This trio of vampy tales makes for a fun read. In Hauf’s “Stay,” vampire Lucian Bellisario falls in love with American tourist Magen Sloan when she’s possessed by the ghost of his dead vampire lover while vacationing in Paris. In “Island Vacation,” by Childs, CPA Piper Reynolds finds herself explaining her part in the death of another vampire to his cousin, Roarke Monterusso, after she wins a vacation to his island. In Castle’s “Vivi and the Vampire,” the vampire king of Terra Noctem, Justin, falls in love with vampire slayer Vivi Martin while vacationing beachside. Castle’s story is the strongest, with well-developed characters and sparkly dialogue despite its short length.
