Kismet Knight, a brainy Denver-based psychologist with a predictable career and a dismal track record when it comes to her personal relationships, is about to have her world rocked. Kismet’s newest patient, Midnight, longs to become a vampire, and the teenager insists that a coven of the undead hangs out at a downtown goth club. The always-rational Kismet dismisses Midnight’s claims as the delusions of an attention-starved girl, but sees an opportunity to make the modern obsession with vampires the most exciting research project of her professional life. Then Devereux, the unbelievably hot club owner, walks into her office professing that he is a vampire. Kismet finds herself uncontrollably drawn to him, but she can’t believe he is what he claims to be. Or can she?

As inexplicable events and erotic encounters pile up—as well as corpses drained of blood—Kismet is caught up in a whirlwind of passion, mystery, and danger. But this fearless heroine, who doesn’t do damsel-in-distress, is about to turn the vampire-meets-girl convention on its head in this exhilarating urban fantasy.

    " It was delightful, sometimes humerous and of course life threating but I enjoyed the different point of view that Kismet had and I loved of course the drop dead gorgeous vampire 'Devereaux'! Looking forward to 'Blood Therapy'! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dilys | 1/2/2014

    " Now & again I love a good vampire novel. Kismet is a psychologist & Midnight a patient who wants to be a vampire.Devereux is a vampire. To start with Kismet does not believe in vampires but she quickly learns otherwise. Reading Kismet thought patterns is a lovely touch & hilarious. Look forward to the follow up. "

    " I expected this to be more UF plot driven though. So I enjoyed the book initially, until about 40% - 50% in when the entire feel changed. I felt like I'd been tricked into reading the latest a C. Feehan Carpathian book; and resented it muchly lol. Not to mention that the writing style extremely wonky in parts and some of the plot turns are downright B movie cheesy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carlos Estrada | 12/27/2013

    " I tried so hard to love this book. The biggest ( I think the only) issue I had with the book was the fact that the main character, after encountering, being bitten, flying in the air with a vampire, has a very difficult time in believing that vampires are for real. The author has a great potential in story telling but needs to tone down hard headed characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 12/27/2013

    " I read the original 2007 out of print edition. Now I wonder what the rewritten version is like. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynnie | 12/15/2013

    " This is a fresh and inventive take on the over done vampire thing. Dr. Kismet meets the vampire of all of our dreams. He is sexy, strong, can get from here to there instantly and is very possessive and obviously very in love with Kismet. yummers! Highly recommended! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 stella yip | 10/30/2013

    " the book i read on valentine's day. how wonderful. oh, and this book is really great. except i felt that whenever the heroine felt like she's safe, there'll surely be something bad happen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 10/11/2013

    " A creative POV for the growing-crowded vampire genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Whitty | 10/2/2013

    " An interesting story,not the normal vampire fare.I enjoyed it very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Weber | 9/18/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book! Great story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 9/4/2013

    " This was a very good, funny and entertaining read!! I enjoyed the second book in the series even more. I really hope there will be more to come!! =) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Priscilla | 7/20/2013

    " An interesting premise. I struggled to fully like the heroine who never seemed to want to commit to the vampire hero until the end. She suffered convenient lust for him, but then wanted to sleep with someone else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam Blome | 7/10/2013

    " This was a fun read. In most genre books, the characters have no problem making the shift to believing in the supernatural. I like that Kismet is a skeptic through much of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adie | 5/27/2013

    " Really good fun, reckon Sookie fans will love this! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica K | 4/12/2013

    " Overall, an enjoyable read. Nothing really stands out - fairly typical characters, standard paranormal romance. Nice "brain candy" read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tuesday's Child | 1/31/2013

    " It gets 3 stars because i thought the storyline was interesting BUT it definitely doesn't live up to its potential.Not sure if it will be worth getting the second one when it comes out.Feel a bit disappointed! "

    " Just love the part where the big bad vampire comes out wearing pink bunny slippers. "
