"a sumptuous feast for the senses"
Ms. Dafoe's MAKE ME is hot, sexy and more satisfying than a
Halloween sized Snickers.
Larissa Hardy has always fought to succeed in a man's
world. She doesn't take crap from anyone, and she'll be
damned if she's starting with some man making unrealistic
demands before she's even had coffee, no matter how tall,
dark and delish he is. However, there's something about
him she can't ignore. Something in those emerald eyes that
makes her heat up until she's ready to melt into a willing
puddle at his feet. He's not like the spineless meatheads
she's been pushing around the dating world. In fact, she
suspects if she pushes this handsome stranger, not only
will he push back, she just might like it.
Adrian Dane will do anything to find and claim his mate.
He's been looking for centuries and won't let anything as
insignificant as time or money get in his way. He asks
Larissa to spare no expense in promoting the opening of his
nightclub on Halloween, believing that is the night he will
find his destined mate. However, after meeting Larissa, he
realizes she is the one he's been searching for. Unlike
the meek and pliable ladies he's used to, Larissa's inner
fire matches his own. When they kiss, her passion nearly
consumes him. Although he might scorch his heart in the
process, Adrian is determined to have Larissa as his
eternal love, and will do anything in his power to make her
I have been eager to read Ms. Dafoe's work for some time
now, and am happy to say she's more than exceeded
expectation, she's garnered a new fan. MAKE ME was a
sumptuous feast for the senses. Though a shorter read, it
had the perfect balance of great storytelling - wonderfully
vivid characters, lush descriptions, screen-melting sexual
tension and scenes sizzling with enough heat to fog your
monitor. The theme of Halloween is very light, so those of
you who may not care for the holiday can still enjoy this
sexy read. I highly recommend this story and can't wait to
read some of Ms. Dafoe's longer works.

All her life, Larissa's motto has been "Make me". But none of the men she dates seem to grasp that she means it. Successful and self-confident, Larissa wants a man strong enough to overpower her — and doesn't believe she'll ever find him. That is, until she meets Adrian Dane. But Larissa doesn't sleep with clients. Not even when the client's a gorgeous, green-eyed vampire.
Adrian knows immediately that Larissa's the soul mate he's spent centuries searching for — and he's determined to claim her. She's strong. He's stronger. She's stubborn. He's determined. He can make her succumb to him. He can drive her to erotic heights she's only dreamed of. The only thing he can't do is force her to turn vampire and join him forever.
