Courtney Dwyer is a talker. She can’t seem to keep her mouth shut at all! Especially around her host…or would you call him her captor. Just who is this mouth watering man?

Dominick Miklos St. Guis has always liked being on his own. He is old fashioned, sexy, rich, assassin, and a vampire. His world is flipped upside down when he encounters Courtney.

Oh my…this book cracked me up! Courtney and her non stop talking is hilarious. I tend to do the same thing when I am nervous. She cracks me up and I w

This is the third novella in this series. It is about Dominic, a vampire assassin. He is known for stealth and is a recluse. His mate comes in the form of a (very) talkative girl named Courtney. She was doing a dive somewhere in the Mediterranean when her oxygen gets cut off and she sees a shark. She aims for spear gun and nails it. Before she can make it to land she is captured though. Dominic thinks Courtney is a hunter, but soon learns that she is his mate. She isn’t having any of it. He take ...more

Courtney Dwyer makes her living opening lines of communication. She’s got a plan. All she needs is a little financial backing. The last thing she’s looking for is a drop-dead gorgeous, silent type…with vampirism tossed in for

The BookChick
I wanted to like it...I really did. I read the first book in the Vampire Assassin series, Knight After Night (Vampire Assassin League ) by Jackie Ivie and experienced the same feeling. The story was trite, mundane, and repetitive...obnoxiously so. All the conversations between Dom and Courtney were circuitous because she would use euphemisms and expressions that he didn't understand. I understand doing it for effect once but the entire book, OH COME ON!

And there was a big thing that just got to me in this book...little editing was done. I picked up more

The Prince and his Mate

Courtney didn't know she was going to meet her lifemate while scuba diving. Dominick thought she was a Hunter out to kill him. Talk about a comedy of errors. Dominick is a very forceful and dominating vampire and is determined to make Courtney his mate. Courtney on the other hand is attracted to Dominick and trying her best not to kill him (the dude seriously needs to lighten up). But when Dominick is in danger it's Courtney to the rescue.

What a great, quick story. Courtney will keep you laughing with her constant rambling and Dom will just make you swoon. ;) Loved seeing a reappearance of Stuart and Sasha! Great, fun book!

Who says video games is a waste of time! Luckily for Courtney is at the top of her game. Her mate is not only a vampire, but an Assassins League Vampire! I love reading this series. It fun, exciting, and oh so sexy!! If you're looking for a fun quick vamp read this is the series you need to grab and become obsessed with.

Watch how trying to get to know a warrior reacts to the modern woman that is his mate. She lovers to argue and he does not use contractions. She is denying that she is his mate. She has made a jerk list and you should see who is on it! You'll love all the Vampire Assassin League books, just can't get enough!
Ok this it the last book I am reading in this series. The only reason I have read 4 of them already is because I bought them all at the same time thinking they sounded like good stories. But they are all very predictable and I find the characters kind of annoying at times. Courtney drove nuts in this story. That girl was dense.

I found the plot confusing....Not enough time to sufficiently develop this complex plot.

I am avid follower of Jackie Ivie, especially this series. However, I was so disappointed with this book, none of the humour we come to expect and I just didn't like our heroine. You can read this as a stand alone but I would recommend that you start with book 1.

Out of the Vampire Assassin League books I've read so far, this is my favourite. The ending was fairly abrupt, but the story was fun and the female lead was strong.
It was ok. Like number two the best. Was a little irritated with Dom and the talking so much. It ended better. Will check out the last one.
