Be still my vampire lovin' heart. This is officially one of my favorite one night stand stories. It has been awhile since I have indulged myself on really good vampire erotic fiction. And I am so glad I picked up this one. It was emotional, well written, and good lord was the vampire sex hot as all get out!

Cara has an amazing voice as an author. I found that the story has easy flow, smooth transitions, and it effortlessly took us on the sexy and romantic journey of Luc and Lily. Luc is a hybrid

From the very beginning, you get emotionally involved as you witness Lily struggle with the concept of re-entering the dating world while still adjusting to her new life as a vampire, courtesy of a former lover. Her friend convinces her to give one night stand a shot, and though she’s nervous, she gathers her courage to go through with it. Luc knows he’s supposed to meet his mate, but fears his time has passed and gives up hope, but meets Lily as his last hoorah so to speak.

What if you became a vampire against your will? Would you be able to trust a vampire again?

Lily Dansen was turned into a vampire from a night of sex with her ex-boyfriend who only left her a phone number when he ran out on her. She didn’t really believe in vampires and then she became one. I found her determination to continue with her life interesting. She met up with Vampires Anonymous and learned about how to survive. But she vows to never trust another vampire again.

Luc Fortier is not a typi

Thanks to the 1Night Stand "dating" service, unlikely couples are brought together. Luc is a half-breed vampire, the child of a vampire and human mating. Lilly is a full-blood vampire having been "turned" by a date in the throes of blood lust. Neither Luc nor Lilly believe it possible to find happiness and love but they're wrong, thank heaven(and Madame Evangeline).

A Scent of Longing was a quick read with excellent pacing and very erotic scenes hot enough to steam the front panel of my Kindle.

This is the first book that I have read by this author and will definitely be reading more! I just wish it was longer, but it flowed so well in my opinion. I really like how she describes the characters emotions.

This is a wonderful, quick read with characters that will touch your heart.
A very quick read. I read this a couple years ago, but noticed it's been re-released with a slightly different title ('Longing'). I enjoyed it and remember it fairly well. It's one of those times the brevity of the tale was too much. It almost felt more like the outline for a story than the whole story itself. A fun easy read by an author I enjoy.
