"Book 2 of the Winning Virgin Series"

Winning Virgin Love is the second book in the Winning Virgin series. I really wanted to like the book, because it has a couple key ingredients to a great erotic paranormal romance, but it was ultimately the uneven flow of the writing and difficulties with the plot that have left me disappointed with this second book.

This book has a complex plot behind it, I think. The problem is that the reader is not let in on the full story. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I am going to give you an idea of the main players in this book. The Spenser family is a powerful vampire family. Their main enemy is another powerful vampire family, the Sabbats. For some reason never fully disclosed, there are mortal women who are chosen virgin brides for the more powerful vampire families. Natasha, from the first book, and her sister, Tabitha, were chosen brides. Natasha mated with Orlando in the first book. Almonzo is Orlando's twin and he mates with Tabitha. There is some sort of twist in the book involving Tabitha and Darian Sabbat, but I will leave that out so as to not spoil it for any future readers. The Sabbats are developing some poison to kill other vampires using the blood from the chosen brides. It was confusing because nothing was ever fully explained. As I said, it is a complex plot, but just too much is going on with little or no explanation. I would have either liked a longer book so I could get more information or more time spent developing the plot within the existing length.

Now for the good stuff! I really fell in love with the characters! Tabitha is even more stubborn than her sister was in the first book. She feels deeply, but is often afraid to show her emotions. Almonzo is a hot alpha vampire who provided me with unexpected humor. Tabitha and Almonzo share an explosive passion, but it got nearly overwhelming as the sex took up a high percentage of the page count. The entire Spenser family is just full of personality and they are all so loyal to one another.

I don't regret reading this book and have every intention of seeing this series through to the end. I am hoping that the third book may bring me a fully developed plot to compliment such wonderful characters.

It's time for another vampire bride and three sexy-hot rogues are ready to give one beautiful vixen an erotic ceremony she'll never forget.

Almonzo Spenser's lifemate is living under his roof. Not only is Tabitha pure hell in a short skirt but she also has some very dangerous secrets. Almonzo isn't surprised when he finally discovers the woman he's chosen for his life partner has a deep connection with a very dangerous clan of vampires.

Darian Sabbat is a vampire with mobster connections. He's created a designer drug that will completely wipe away generations of vampires using the blood of one of their own.

To make matters worse, Darian will be permitted to become a part of the ménage a quatre ceremony that includes one of his most hated enemies and the lovely Tabitha whom he desperately wants to take and mark as his own.
