"action, romance, a little end of the world"
Elaine Shrink is a Psychiatrist, who while making a house
call one night to a new patient finds out a lot more about
herself and her family. Her new sexy patient is Seth
Overkill and he is the Prince of Darkness. Problem is that
he can no longer "feed" since he has a few phobias, and
has become obsessive compulsive. Seth tells Elaine that
she is an Ayudante and that her family and his have been
linked for several generations and it is her duty to help
him. This is the first Elaine has heard about this, since
her father was killed when she was a little girl. Seth
needs to feed before the Day of Reckoning or in his
weakened state he will not be able to keep the dead from
walking the earth and he needs Elaine's help to do so.
When you hear the main plot and see the character's names
your first thought is that this is a romantic comedy, it
is not. This book has action, romance, a little end of the
world and vampire induced violence and Monkish OCD. The
author also adds the right amount of levity. One of my
favorite lines is when Seth keeps telling Elaine he needs
her and she has to help him, she tells him; "Call me Latin-
American. Call me a Trekkie. But stop with all this
Ms Bright has created a wonderful story that is guaranteed
to make those who love vampires and romance, love her book.

Elaine is the Ayudante, the protector. Problem is, no one ever bothered to tell her about her legacy from her father--that she is destined to protect the Prince of Darkness himself, sexy, seriously neurotic, Seth Overkill. And she'd rather eat nails than have anything to do with bloodsuckers, be this one ever so sexy and in dire need of her help.
Seth isn't the only one in need, however. The Day of Reckoning is coming, and as weakened as Seth has become by his problems, he won't be able to stop the dead from rising from their graves to walk the earth without her help.
