"Engaging vampire romance has a biting edge to it"
Englishwoman Teri Simpson crosses the ocean to attend the
wedding of her cousin Katie. The bridesmaid has no idea
that Katie is no longer 100 percent human as the bride has
converted to vampirism and is marrying into a family of
vampires including her spouse.
Katie asks her future brother-in-law Bastian Argeneau to
allow Teri to stay at the family penthouse for the two
weeks leading to the wedding. Willing to do anything for
Katie, Bastian agrees. However, he might have
reconsidered her stay if he knew that cousin Vincent also
arrives to stay there. Vincent has a healthy appetite for
female humans enjoying a LOVE BITE or two. As Bastian and
Teri fall in love, he makes sure that Vincent keeps his
teeth to himself especially in light of driving their
housekeeper into resigning.
This engaging vampire romance has a biting edge to it as
Lynsay Sands spoofs her previous tales and those of the
sub-genre with an intelligent satirical spin. The
terrific story line moves forward at a rapid pace once
Teri meets the in-laws and never slows down yet makes her
and the vampires seem so genuine that a nest must be
residing in New York. Fans of an amusing tongue in cheek
(change tongue on neck) melodramas will sink their teeth
into this delightful "relationship" drama and will adore
TALL, DARK, AND HUNGRY.
