Abigail Merriweather Gooden is a witch
with a social status most would envy. She is also a kick
ass attorney who deals in clients from the preternatural
world. Her latest is a vampire who just happens to own a
gentlemen’s club and is dating her mother. When one of his
dancers is murdered, of course her mother sends Jurnik to
her. But when he comes in for their first meeting, he
brings someone in with him—someone Abigail cannot read.
Lucan Knight is a very powerful shifter
who also happens to be a private detective. When Jurnik
hires him to find out who framed him for murder, of course
he wants to know what attorney Jurnik will hire. Lucan is
attracted to Abigail when they meet, but he is not going to
let out all his secrets because of it.
When Lucan and Abigail try to form a
working relationship, it is marred a bit by the attraction
they are both fighting. It doesn’t help that Abigail’s
assistant and her mother have decided that Lucan is just
what she needs. Working together and taking potshots at
each other just helps turn the attraction into passion.
Their case takes a crazy turn when a nasty person in
Abigail’s past appears and is somehow tied to their case.
Will they be able to bring in the bad guy while keeping
Truly sad that the book is over. That was my initial
thought when I finished The Virtuous Vampire.
Abigail is a witch and a lawyer for the preternatural
community around her. Lucan is a shifter private detective
who has much more in his background than just being able to
become other animals. Abigail and Lucan were on a collision
course when a common client brought them together. While
both know that there was something more than attraction
between them, both try to put it aside in order to help
their client. But love cannot be put on hold for crime or a
past that won’t go away. I absolutely cannot wait until the
next case comes up for Abigail and Lucan. I also fell for
“the boys”— sorry you will just have to read the book.
The Virtuous Vampire has a great plot that weaves
suspense, danger, humor, passion, and magic. There was
nothing that did not pull me in and keep me reading—all in
one sitting. Magic words like these just have to be a
Joyfully Recommended Read.
