At loose ends after his teaching
contract expires, Brian decides to spend a few months on the
beach doing what he loves most – surfing. As summer comes
to an end, Brian knows he has to find something to do with
his life; he just doesn’t know what. On the beach one
night, Brian spots the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen.
Cassie’s unlike anyone he’s ever met. She’s not just
beautiful, smart, and sexy. There’s something truly special
about her, something that calls to Brian. But Brian’s love
is about to be put to the test when he discovers Cassie’s
deepest secret. His lover is a vampire.
My first thought after finishing
Confessions of a Vampire’s Lover was “what a fun
story.” And truly, that opinion holds. Kelli A. Wilkins
has spun a fast, entertaining, deliciously wicked tale that
was wonderfully satisfying.
What makes Confessions of a Vampire’s Lover
somewhat unusual is that the story is written in the first
person, entirely from the hero’s point of view. From my
perspective at least (as someone used to reading first
person narratives from the female’s viewpoint), it shifted
the dynamics of Brian and Cassie’s relationship a bit. The
predatory nature of Cassie’s existence was heightened by the
fact that it was filtered through a human’s perspective.
All the same, Cassie and Brian were perfectly balanced,
matching one another in sweetness, strength, and sexuality.
In the end, I was delighted by Confessions of a
Vampire’s Lover. It’s fascinating and sensual with
two immensely likeable protagonists. I am fast becoming a
fan of Ms. Wilkins’s stories and look forward to reading
more of her work in the future.
