“Our sister is marrying a vampire.”

When the ever practical Caroline Cabot first hears those words from the lips of her fanciful youngest sister, she accuses Portia of having a wild imagination.

But when she discovers their sister Vivienne is actually being courted by Adrian Kane, the mysterious viscount rumored to be a vampire, she decides to accept his invitation to a midnight supper and do some sleuthing of her own. To both her delight and her dismay, she soon finds herself falling under Kane’s bewitching spell.

After all, what’s a proper young lady to do when her sister’s suitor arouses more than just her suspicions?

My Thoughts
You know those books that are totally fun in a distracting and entirely fluffy way? This is one of those books. This isn’t a bad thing. In fact, I enjoy being both distracted and filled with fluff upon occasion. I *like* delving into a historical romance and finding whispers of vampires in it. I like sorting through the clues to see if there’s any truth in the spiteful whispers of the upper crust ladies and gentlemen of the Ton. Basically, this book was a great distraction on a rainy day when I really didn’t want anything too overwhelming or heavy.

Things I liked: Hello, Adrian! Mysterious, sexy, keeps odd nighttime hours. Good stuff. Caroline Cabot. Devoted to her sisters, smart-mouthed, curious. Oh, and she likes to snoop. There’s nothing quite like a girl in a nice dress who’s willing to open doors better left unlocked. I feel like I should have been slightly squicked out by the way she fell for the man who was courting her sister, but I was okay with it. Especially after Adrian’s reason for courting Vivienne came to light. His reactions to Caroline were priceless, by the way. I loved how he got oddly jealous when other men were around her. It was sweet and … sweet. PS: the kissing was HAWT.

While in no way life changing, this book was a fast read with a fun and entertaining characters.

  1. I love the fun in a distracting and entirely fluffy way books! In fact, I have this one on my shelves :) I think I might put it on my bout-of-books read-a-thon shelves :)

  2. I never thought that a historical paranormal romance book existed! Interesting..though not for me, I like to read fluffy books once in a while too. Sometimes I just like to give my brain a break.

  3. “You know those books that are totally fun in a distracting and entirely fluffy way?”

    Yes, yes I do know those books and I LOVE THEM! I haven’t read too many paranormal historicals which seems odd since I’m a huge fan of both paranormal and historical romance, so combining them should be right up my alley. Can’t wait to give this one a try Kelly, thanks for the recommendation!
