Much Ado About Vampires (Dark Ones #9)
Style: Sexy Romp
Madcap, crazy and comic describes this tale of a vampire and his beloveds. Plural? How can that be? Yes, Cora and her vampire, Alec, find themselves pitted against the forces of not quite hell but darn close and also against Cora herself, kind of. I didn't find it as cohesive as earlier books in the series, which I read about three years ago it was light, and fun even when ...more

Bitter at first bite…
Corazon Ferreira is one heck of a jaded woman. Not only did her husband dump her for a pretty, vivacious blonde, but her sister has lost her mind and married a vampire. Worse, it turns out that Cora herself was a vampire’s mate in a past life…the very same vampire she witnessed killing someone.
If only Cora hadn’t inadvertently been caught up in the ill-laid p ...more

Corazon ist ein neuer Charakter und gefiel mir wieder super. Sie kommt durch einen bestimmten Umstand ins Akasha und trifft dort auf Alex. Den kennt der Leser der Reihe bereits sehr gut. Er wurde ja vom Vampirrat dorthin verbannt. Es stellt sich schnell heraus, dass Cora die Reinkarnation seiner damals verunglückten Seelengefährtin ist. Daher auch der äußerst genial gewählte Tit ...more
Quick & Dirty: Such fun to read, wild and witty.

This is the story of Corazon Ferreira, a budding real estate agent, and known vampire hater, well serious vampire dislike-er. As the story opens, we find Cora taking pictures of an old mansion along with the woman who stole her husband, who also work ...more
Despite the ridiculous title, I managed to I enjoy this book for what it was (a fun paranormal read), although I'm getting sick of reading about vampires and their 'soul mates.' And having the vamp able to read his Beloved's thoughts is not groundbreaking. I mostly just found the device annoying since Cora tends to have diatribes inside her head until realizing that Alec can hear ...more

“I am a Dark One!” he said, managing to stand upright at last, ignoring the pain and tearing feeling on his left side. “We do not have owies! We have grievous, nearly fatal injuries!”
“Pia,” Cora said(...). “Would you please get Alec a chair before he does more damage to, or topples over from, his grievous, nearly fatal injuries?”
