“It’s a Vampire
Treemont, life as a small-town coroner doesn’t have many
perks, but a sexy man on her table is one of them. Too bad
Or maybe not.
vampire Zachariah Kowalski has once again dropped off at an
inconvenient time. As luck would have it, the beautiful
woman who almost brings a scalpel to him is his Life Mate,
Claire. Zach has loved and lost Claire for centuries; she’s
always murdered right before he can turn her and formally
make her his own. This time, Zach’s determined not to lose
her. But to do that, he has to figure out who the killer
Fate gives two
lovers destined to be together another chance in the red-hot
“It’s a Vampire Thing.” Claire and Zach are two likeable
characters who are racing against the clock to keep history
from repeating itself. Adoring both Claire and Zach as I
did, it was easy to become entranced by the story as I
watched them put the pieces of the puzzle together. Though
Zach and Claire are everything you could want in a hero and
heroine, I admit I found myself slightly more intrigued by
the tale’s villain. Lucky for me, I finished this
satisfying tale able to jump right into its sequel.
Smitrovitch nearly kills the Life Mate of the man she wants
for the umpteenth time, she’s banished from her clan until
she redeems herself. But Desi has no desire to be a good
girl…err…vampire. She’s a b*tch and she loves it and no one
can tell her otherwise. Especially not do-gooder Jarrod
Stanislavski, a vampire who seems hell-bent on sexually
frustrating Desi into good behavior. Stranded in Jarrod’s
cabin with no place to go and no one to talk to except her
tempting warden, Desi uncovers a secret about herself that
could change everything.
Desi may have
been a very bad vampire, but “Doing Desi” is one very
good story. After reading “It’s a Vampire Thing,” I
couldn’t wait to see how Dakota Cassidy would turn her nasty
villain into a heroine. Desi is more complex than even she
realizes, and I won’t spoil the story by revealing why.
Suffice it to say “Doing Desi” takes a few twists and turns
as Desi and Jarrod argue their way to happily ever after.
Whether its protagonists are bickering, biting, or [rhymes
with hanging], “Doing Desi” is an exhilarating tale.
It’s a Vampire
is a collection of two closely-tied novellas and together
they pack one heck of a punch. It’s a Vampire Thing
features Ms. Cassidy’s trademark brand of humor mixed with
wicked sensuality, and the world she created was a delight
to escape to for a few hours.
