Rowen hits the nail (or is it the stake?) on the head with her feisty debut novel about a reluctant vampire trying to cope with her newfound otherworldly status. After a blind date bites Sarah Dearly on the neck and is killed by vampire hunters, she discovers she's not only a vampire but also has been left to learn the ropes of the night by herself. Thank goodness for wise "master" vampire Thierry de Bennicoeur, who saves her life, shows her to the nearest vampire hangout and wins her heart in the process. Next comes a mix of misplaced trust, stakings and bad double dates, all with the goal of outwitting the vampire hunters and getting Thierry to see that Sarah's the one for him. Rowen perfectly balances suspense and wit by tossing in one-liners just when the novel could start getting too serious ("I just need to wash my face and brush my fangs first and we can get out of here," Sarah says). Mentions of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Anne Rice ground the novel and make it a true modern girl's guide to (vampire) life. (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

I am so-so on this one. I wouldn't classify this as a romance though, not enough romance and not nearly enough sex! I did like the story, and I loved the fact that it was set in Toronto since I was just there for the convention. The other thing I liked and disliked at the same time was the way the author played with you. At times I wasn't sure where the story was going. I would probably try this author again.
I am sending this to SpikesMom now known as Westof Mars as part of the Relayer's sweeps.

Thanks, Ap. Maybe I'll like it anyway. *grin*

I finished this a few months ago and despite having high hopes, really, all I can say is meh.

And yes, not enough sex. Although I don't think that would have saved it.
