The Cowboy and The Vampire (The Cowboy and the Vampire #1)
Reporter Lizzie Vaughan doesn’t realize it, but she has 2,000 years of royal Vampiric blood coursing through her veins. Neither she nor Tucker, her cowboy lover, has any idea that Julius, the leader of the undead, has a diabolical plan to reign over darkness for all eternity—with Lizzie at his side.
Lizzie battles for her life—and her soul—as she and Tucker find themselves...more
Tough cowboy Tucker live on his ranch, with his dog and his horse. His comfortable life is changed when he meets a NYC reporter who wants to interview a 'real cowboy" She ends up reviewing him between the sheet and they begin an affair with her traveling to visit him on his ranch. The lust turns to love and so it begins.
There is one big crack in the romance, more than one. She is descended from a long line of vampires and is wanted by Mr. Big Bad Vampire for her monthly visitor. It seems that de ...more
This book surely is no milestone in profound literature, but I remember that I enjoyed reading the combination of romance, action and lots of fun very much. Also, I was intrigued with the idea of combining a vampire story with the cowboy theme, something not done ...more
If I had to liken this book to a movie, it would either be to Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, or maybe more appropriately, Quentin Tarantino’s From Dusk to Dawn. That’s cool, rig ...more
I love the vastly different way the two leads are written and the story is told from both Lizzie and Tucker's point of views. The parts of the story written from Tucker's point of view are absolutely hysterical.
I really love the way their relationship grew, and even though everything happene ...more

There were so many favorite parts, and I don't want to give away any of the plot, so am unable to illustrate just one. But let's say that the vampires are different than you expect, and ...more
A reporter who ends up becoming a vampire.
A cowboy and his dog and horse.
An overweight vampire that remembers Jesus personally.
Your usual cast of mean, creepy vampires.
While it is a teen romance book, it's better than most in that it's not aimed at your typical teen. Don't confuse this with Twilight, folks. I don't recommend it for younger teens because there is some sexual content and viole ...more
I have to say that from the very start I was hooked. I could picture Tucker and hear his voice as I read which usually takes a while.
Hays has taken two completely different themes, Cowboys and Vampires, and married them together in a very detailed and convincing way.
When Lizzie travels to Lonepine, Wyoming to do research and interview cowboys, she doesn't plan on falling for one. Tucker is very laid-back and although he finds ...more
Page one and I was already hooked.
The plot's structure is really what drew me in. Short chapters, back and forth and giving hints as to what may or may not happen. It gets you thinking and hungry for more and very involved. I had to keep reading because if I didn't I would probably find myself sneaking a few pages in the bathroom at work. Bad, I know. When ...more
I couldn't be happier with Mr. Hays creation of The Cowboy, Tucker. Lizzie and Tucker meet, fall in love and have sex (or vice versa). Then Lizzie gets kidnapped by vamps. Tucker is too late to save the day and Lizzie is turned. Now Tucker is in love with the ...more
Hays, clark and Kathleen McFall
Wyoming cowboy Tucker falls in love with the least likely person: Lizzie Vaughan, a reporter from New York who disrupts his life by writing an article about him, pegging him as the last living cowboy. While researching a new story on vampires, Lizzie becomes frightened, and returns to Wyoming and the waiting arms of Tucker. But the vampires, convinced that she is their queen, track her down, kidnap her, and bring her back to New Yor ...more
I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Journalist Elizabeth “Lizzie” Vaughn traveled to cowboy country way out in Wyoming to do a write up on the quintessential cowboy. When she targets Tucker as the object of her interview, she finds him to be the very epitome of a cowboy. He's a loner, doesn't talk much, is a bit crusty, likes peace and ...more
Tucker is by all accounts a rough and tumble guy. He likes the desolate wide open spaces of Wyoming and has no desire to ever be anywhere else. It mystifies him how he managed to fall for Lizzie as she is both a city girl AND a nosy reporter! Maybe he should blame his traitorous dog Rex as he seems to like her better than him now anyways... Or his horse Snort.... He took a shine to her also... It definitely can't be Fate! He's a cowboy an ...more
Above average twist on the usual vampire romance story. I liked the character of Tucker and thought he 'read' true to life as a regular guy/cowboy trying to make sense of all the vampire stuff being thrown at him. The Lizzie character was very one-dimensional and I didn't much like her or care whether she became a vampire or whatever. There were many great peripheral characters that could have been fleshed out and really added to the story. The dog was a hoot! Overall, not bad and there w ...more
The story was v ...more
The take on the vampire myth was definitely different and I found very fascinating. I can't go too much into it but it was fantastic. I loved, the characters Lizzie is one sarcastic, tough spitfire of a girl. And what can I say about Tucker other than where can I find a cowboy like him. He had a bi ...more
