Once Bitten, Twice Shy

Before she joined Reaper in hunting Gregor’s gang of rogue bloodsuckers, privileged princess Topaz was gunning for just one vamp: Jack Heart. The gorgeous con man had charmed his way into her bed, her heart and her bank account, taking her for half a million dollars and vanished without a word.

Now she and Jack – maddeningly attractive as ever – are supposedly on the same side. As Reaper’s ragtag outfit scatters, Topaz sets out to solve a mystery that’s plagued her all her lives, mortal and immortal: what really happened to her movie-star mother, who died when Topaz was ust a baby? With four men claiming to be her father, why has she always been alone? And what stake does Jack have in discovering the truth about her past? Topaz is sure he’s up to something – but her suspicions are at war with her desires…

Review: Best Wings book Ever!

Oh lordy, did I ever enjoy this one! Out of all of them, IMO, this one’s tops.

In the last book, you get the sense that Topaz is the spoiled, rich girl. This one may begin that way, but you quickly find out that it’s far from the truth. Topaz isn’t some spoiled brat, a rich girl that everyone else gets the sense of, but rather a sad, lonely, confused woman who feels cheated and unlovable. There’s a depth to her anguish that has the reader sympathizing with her completely.

Jack sticks to her like glue, for his own con man reasons, telling himself that he’s not in love with her, no matter what his feelings are. He learns the truth – when it’s almost too late. By trying to pull the biggest con of his life, he sets in motion what happens throughout the novel.

Excellent action and suspense, twists you don’t see coming and the most perfect ending have me on pins and needles for the next novel, Angel’s Pain, which isn’t due out until October 2008. The four-month wait may just make me pull out a few hairs, LOL!
