Todd Martin is bored and, as an immortal vampire, that’s not a good thing.  Nagged by his sister, Claudia, to attend a charity “service” auction, Todd can’t wait to escape until he spies a mouse being toyed with by vicious rats.  The mouse in this case is Gwyneth Reilly, who is currently up for bid and her reputation and self-esteem are being shredded by two jealous women, the auctioneer and the organizer, who just happens to be Gwen’s cousin, Dora.

Gwen appreciates the save, sort of, but she’s suspicious of why this handsome man wants anything to do with her.  Gwen is aware of her own qualities, lacking though they may be, and nothing in her limited experience helps her to understand what is going on between them.  Todd’s not quite sure why he saved Gwen either.  But the scents of her blood and skin intoxicate him and the fact that he can’t read her emotions, except for very strong ones, intrigue him.  But what will happen once Gwen realizes that Todd is a vampire?

Ok, I admit it, the publisher’s excerpt got me.  To catch my attention with such a short blurb from the book was enough to convince me to read the whole thing.  And I wasn’t disappointed.  Vampire’s Pet has both hot sex and an interesting plot, and I loved the growth of Gwen from a shy mouse, who would let anyone run roughshod over her, to the woman she becomes.  The only thing I did not like is how pathetic Gwen was in auction at the beginning of the story.  Gwen was subjected to verbal abuse and potentially other types of abuse and she didn’t try to do anything to remove herself from the situation.  But this did not stop me from enjoying Vampire’s Pet and I think you will like it too.
