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...
(Goodreads Synopsis)

I grabbed this e-book when it was free on the Kobo site as the title caught my attention and it looked like a lot of fun.

I'm so glad I didn't pass it by as this book really made me smile and even laugh out loud. Some of the scenes are just so funny. Sparks has created a really great plot that is at times serious and at times likes to make fun of itself. It's a refreshing change from some of the really 'serious' paranormal romance out there as it acknowledges the clich├ęs and just runs with them.

The characters are vibrant and interesting and the book overall is an easy, relaxing read. If, like me, you love your vampires but don't mind laughing at them occasionally, then this is the book for you.


  1. I had almost forgotten I had downloaded this title for free several months ago. Thanks for reviewing it. I love books that mock vampires, even though I love vamps. I'll have to remember to read this one!

  2. I hope to start this series soon.
    Thanks for the review
