What-did you think all vamps were pale, thin and brooding? Don’t I wish.

Gloriana St. Clair is an eternally “full-figured” vampire – she just happened to be bloating when a sexy Scotsman sank his teeth into her. She and said Scot – Angus Jeremiah Campbell III, aka Jeremy Blade – have been on and off again for centuries, currently off. A couple hundred years has taught them how to press each other’s buttons – in good ways and bad.

Glory’s headed for Austin and a new business venture: Vintage Vamp’s Emporium. After all, she loves clothes, and she is an antique. Only problem is, there’s a billionaire techno – freak vampire hunter on the loose. Blade’s in total he-vampire mode, and wants Glory to move in with him so he can “protect” her. But it’s time for this vamp to explore her own powers.

Review: I loved it!

I’m really glad for the suggestion of this book as a BotM, Kathleen. I thought it was great!

I thought Glory had attitude, strength, smarts, a soft heart for her friends, and she can make any reader laugh, even when she’s not trying to be funny. She’s brave, even when she could swear her heart will beat right out of her chest. And Valdez, her truly exceptional dog. You’ll have to read it to understand what I mean.

I really liked Jeremiah – strong, domineering and totally in love with her. But with his ‘me-Tarzan-you-Jane’ attitude, he doesn’t understand Glory’s need for independence. He learns though, and it’s hurtful for both of them.

I really don’t like Damian. I don’t like his advances on Glory, knowing just the kind of man/vamp he is. Reading the way he’s after Glory, you know that if she was to ever fall for him, he’d leave lickety-split. He loves the chase and nothing more.

Mara is ticking me off more and more. Blade doesn’t see what she’s up to, but Glory does, and it’s ‘killing’ her.

I liked the other characters. Some you wish you knew personally, some you’d love to meet and be acquainted with, and some you love to hate.

An excellent plot with twists. Mystery, suspense, awesome love scenes, cool action scenes, I couldn’t ask for better. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one!
