THE VAMPIRE AND THE VIRGIN
This eighth book in the Love at Stake series is a good continuation. While introducing new characters and a nice romance, the story still allows readers to catch up with old friends. However, the heroine, even considering her past, is too quick to jump to conclusions about the hero.
Still recovering from his capture by the Malcontents, Robby MacKay is sent to the Greek isle of Patmos to recuperate. FBI psychologist Olivia Satiris is also headed to the isle to visit her grandmother -- and flee a stalker.
Olivia's gift enables her to tell when someone is lying and to sense their emotions. Surprisingly, when she meets Robby, she discovers she can't sense him at all. As for Robby, he falls for Olivia at first sight. When the stalker tracks Olivia down, her suspicions center on Robby. But Robby is not giving up on her, even though he knows he might lose her forever when he reveals his true nature. (AVON, Mar., 384 pp., $7.99)
