1. After Midnight
2. The Vampire Who Loved Me
“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?
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.
