"A mesmerizing supernatural romance"
Based on C.J. Dante's Book of Secrets Roxy and Joy head to
the Czech republic ostensibly seeking men, but it is the
in place for vampires. The two American females attend
the Moravian Gothfaire on All Hallow's Eve at Drahanska
Castle where they meet men claiming to be vampires. Of
course these modern women reject the notion of someone
drinking blood from a live mortal though the participants
heat their blood.
However, Joy begins to envision weird happenings like
blood drinking. She starts to wonder if a real vampire is
sending her flashes as a means of courting her. Could
that creature of the night be the human hunk Raphael St.
John who makes Joy's blood boil or is someone else seeking
her as his soul mate?
Readers who delight in satiric romances will want to learn
the rules of A GIRL'S GUIDE TO VAMPIRES. For the most
part the story line is an amusing farce that loses some
steam when ironically the plot turns into a terse suspense
murder mystery. Raphael is quite the hunk whether he is
or isn't a vampire and the support crew like Roxy and
another pal Miranda add depth. However this tale belongs
to Joy, the six foot brick oven Amazon, who, no one in
their right mind regardless of gender will want to fight
without supernatural powers.
