"An intriguing vampire story with IRREVERNT dashes of humor"
This PREQUIL to LOVE BITES is a hoot! (LOVE BITES is

Luc is a notable non-fiction history author. When he writes
of his family's marriages and sends them to his publisher,
they are published as paranormal romance... Not surprising
as his is a family of vampires.
Now he has a new editor who is nagging him to do promotion -
- his mom advises he do the RT thing. So, thinking he is
agreeing to magazine interview, he says OK to RT. To his
horror, he has agreed to go to a Romantic Times Booklover's
I REALLY WOULD HAVE LOVED to have attended the RT
convention Ms. Sands described in her book! Lady Barrow (as
far as I know) has never been found under a table helping
an editor un-snag her sleeve from an author's cod- piece
during the Renaissance Ball (although I am sure she has
found herself in MANY interesting situations during RT
conventions!). And editor, Chris Keyes from Roundhouse has
never answered room service to accept condoms for one of
his authors. (Oh that's right, Chris from ROUNDHOUSE, not
Chris from LoveSpell - sorry, having met LoveSpell editor,
I imagined his face in this scene - oh Lindsey are you in
trouble if someone says something to him!)
If you have read this author before, you know Ms. Sands
mixes an intriguing story with IRREVERNT dashes of humor.
Even if you are not aware of some of the subtle humor
(names, etc), you will still laugh until tears make it
difficult to read for a moment during some of the scenes.
Never-the-less, the story itself involves some real emotion
and conflict along with the fantasy. When you read "THE
END" you know you have been entertained and have
experienced a moment or two that has you acknowledging
choices in values and life-goals that we all face.
