Okay, I’ve watched Forever Knight, Buffy and True Blood. This story runs a familiar gambit – heroine Rachel Garrett is a coroner on the night shift in the city morgue, praying for a promotion onto the day shift. But when she steps between a crazy vampire hunter with an ax and his intended victim, she seals her own fate. She’ll never return to daylight again.
Vampire Etienne Argeneau can only turn one person in his lifetime. Usually a vampire uses that law to turn a lifemate. He doesn’t know if Rachel is, but she saved his life. Least he can do is return the favor. If she’s not his lifemate, then he’s doomed to walk alone forever. There is NO do-over.
Rachel awakens to a new life, a new man with a bunch of some-nice-and-some-crazy relatives and a still-on-the-loose insane vampire hunter named…pudge. The most sqeamish coroner in the history of the profession has to exist on blood. And then there’s Etienne himself. Mr. Irrisistible. Except when she wants to stake him herself.
This was a fun, light read with great characters and a predictable storyline. The characters keep you reading. Not used to “light” vampire stories. THAT was a refreshing change.
