Sighs: 4 sighs
So what if he’s a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn’t have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lop–sided eater for all eternity.
Things aren’t going well for Shanna Whelan either…After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she’s next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she’s afraid of blood. When Roman rescues her from an assassination attempt, she wonders if she’s found the one man who can keep her alive. Though the attraction between them is immediate and hot, can Shanna conquer her fear of blood to fix Roman’s fang? And if she does, what will prevent Roman from using his fangs on her…
Shanna is funny and witty. She’s the modern day woman. Roman is rich, powerful, and caring. The modern alpha. I’m not usually a fan of category tropes, (like the misunderstanding plotline and a momentarily TSTL heroine who wanders off when she knows killers are after her just because she’s mad at the hero).
A few other things bothered me too.
The hero said “God’s blood” so many times in just the first two chapters, I wanted to rip my eyeballs out and throw them at him.
Also in the first two chapters, his chemist fidgets with his buttons until I want to pop them all off and shove them down his throat. However, at least he fiddles all the buttons off his coat, which is funny enough to offset some of the annoyance.
Despite all that, I really loved this book. Funny, sexy, and sweet, with great struggles between the hero and heroine and some classic lines. Four sighs.
