Yes, I found another Cowboy Vampire! Whoop Whoop Yeehaw

Hooked me in the first chapter.

(The last few books I've read have been extremely moving taking me into emotional depths I haven't visited in a looooong time. So I was primed for this story.)

The time is present day.
Main characters:
800 year old Vampire sire who was a Knight of Richard the Lion Heart. This one is a sadist SOB.
140-150 year old fledgling (H) - Cade McKinnon - turned in the late 1800's, post civil war.
At the time he was a Texa

For some bizarro reason I'm finding this book very hard to put down even though the heroine calls the hero "Cowboy" and it contains a plot element that usually puts me off for good. You know that old relic where the vampire hero, under the guise of "protecting" the heroine, watches her grow from child to young lady and secretly lusts after her once her breasts appear? Yep, this book has it (but he goes one step further and invades her dreams) but for some reason I'm not finding it gross or think ...more

It was ok, but I wanted it to be over. Nothing grabbed me emotionally.

Bad vampire Ridgemont turns Cade and Hirsch into vampires. At the time 1883, Cade was a Texas Ranger. Hirsch was a Nazi sadist around 1940 when he was turned. Ridgemont has power over the younger two vampires and forces them to help him kill Valerie’s family. Valerie is a human with psychic powers. Ridgemont and Hirsch kill her parents, but Cade helps Valerie escape with her sister Beth. Valerie was 12 at the time. As she is g

This is the first book by Angela Knight that I have read. The book focuses on three main characters:Valerie, Cade amd Ridgemont. This was a gripping story of a vampire who had been beaten and tortured through the years as a slave to RIdgemont. Ridgemont had ulterior motives for killing Valeries family and for bringing Cade and Valerie together. The story was very well written and the storyline flowed smoothly throughout the book. I literally couldn't put this book down. Rating this book was easy ...more

Valerie is haunted by dreams of "the Cowboy" AKA a vampire. LOL

She finally meets Cade McKinnon (the cowboy/vampire).

This is a great read to "get you in the mood," but not much of a story line.

I really got into these characters. In spite of the fact that Knight's other work at the time was published in the erotic romance Secrets collections, the sex scenes in this novel are no spicier than one would find in a Nora Roberts book. Safe for the timid among us. The writing is almost as good as Knight's later work.

The paranormal elements of the story were very well done, horror where needed without gratuitous graphic descriptions. We have a hero who is a good man trapped in a seemingly no-

TRAMA: Per anni i sogni di Valerie Chase sono stati popolati da un uomo: il Cowboy. Quando era bambina lui la salvava dai suoi incubi, ora che è adulta è un amante seducente che trasforma i suoi sogni in notti di piacere. Ma il Cowboy non è un sogno, è reale. Ed è un vampiro. Dopo averla protetta a lungo dal malvagio che l’ha mutato, a Cade McKinnon è rimasto un solo modo per prendersi cura di Valerie: rapirla. In una rete di paura e passione, ma prigioniera dell’uomo dei sogni, Valerie dovrà fi ...more

I set out with poor expectations for this book but ended up finding it entertaining. Valerie Chase has always thought that her erotic dreams about Cowboy were just that, dreams. She comes to find out that Cowboy, Cade McKinnon, is very real. He's a vampire and saved her life when she was 12. Now his sire is out to get her in order to engage in a showdown with Cade. Although the story isn't tightly woven, neither is the story overwhelmed by sex. Valerie was much less fully drawn than Cade and it ...more

Just ok. Love a vampire story but in this one all the romping got in the way. Also in the book the Valerie has red hair but the woman on the cover is a blond.
I liked this book both the first time I read it and this time as well. I have only a few problems with it. Format issues, especially at the end when the italics was missing during one mental conversation and where it was present when it was narration, rather than dialogue. The fight scene between Cade and Ridgmont is built up so much, it's kind of short for the payoff. And, the cover. I like the cover except for the small error that Val is a redhead, not a blonde. Other than these things, this b ...more

Loved the story and the great sex scenes. Except the one on the trunk of the car, I could have done without that one!

I don't think I've ever read an erotica novel, in the classical sense. In which the hero saves the damsel in distress. But there's a first time for everything, right?

I was intrigued by the story, to be honest, which consists of vampires – good and bad ones – so there's the fantasy part that I like. And who am I kidding? A little erotica has never hurt anybody, am I right? Thought so.

The cover made me keep putting the book back in my TBR shelf - but I needed it for a February challenge and ended up really liking this book a lot. It grabs you in the beginning and I just loved the story. I had read a short story last month that was part two of this book but that didn't spoil this read at all. Would recommend this book.

This started off with a bang and just kept going. Cade and Val were characters I could definitely get behind. I have an intense love/hate thing going for Abigail, but she was written perfectly into the story. Oh and Ridgemont was a baddie I'm sure no one would have a problem hating. Over all this was another winner from Knight for me.
May 17, 2009 Sharon rated it liked it
Eh...ambivalent. The sexy dreamy part sounded promising but there are just so many better vampire sexy stories out there. I didn't hate it, hence the 3 stars...but I would pick so many before it.

Ms. Knight is one of the authors I really enjoy reading. This is a happily ever after book with good sexual tension. I recommend reading this as a nice escape from a hard day's work.

She has another winner with The Forever Kiss. I'm enthralled with it, no question. The only reason I stopped reading was because I needed sleep!

I really struggled with wanting to like the book. The premise seemed nice but I just couldn't care about the characters. Didn't finish.
Just OK, fast paced story, but not the best work from Angela Knight.
