Andre St James is a centuries old vampire, born and bred in Naw Leans with a take-charge attitude that usually gets him exactly what he wants. Then he meets Cynthiana and he knows she is his love. He fears for her life because fragile humans die every day. Heart attacks. Car wrecks. He won't risk her waiting until she loves him back, so he turns her without asking first.

Cute, short read. Story was a bit hypocritical/sexist at times but still enjoyable.
Lady Raven RAVE!
Just finish reading this book got it for free so I really can't complain. The book is a short quick read it wasn't prefect and it wasn't great it falls in between. It starts out very enticing but dwindle just a tiny bit for me it went from A to M instead of A to B. Cyn was bitten by Andrea the first night they hooked up because he knew she was the one his mate and didn't want to wait when the time was right. Cyn was angry that he did this (she wasn't that angry i think personally), now they need ...more
Not one of my normal books, but a kindle freebie, this was an erotic short that went to places that aren't my cup a tea (no proctological fantasies for me). But the real problem was that what might have been the most interesting part of the story happened before this short begins. He's an ancient vamp and when he meets her, he refuses to take the chance that some freak accident my take her from him and turns her without her consent. So, coming into the story she's ticked at him but melts into a ...more
My favorite part was our girl breaking down in the desert between LA and Vegas, and unable to get the tow truck company to come rescue her because she didn't know her exact location. Priceless.

This is the second installment at the Heat of the Night by Crystal Jordan.

It's a short. And as such, it's nothing more than I was expecting before reading. There are nice characters and the plot is good. The pace however is a bit rushed, and I'd like to read about the events when they first met. That promised to be hot.

I think Jordan tried to pack this book with a bit of everything without making a total mess out of it. I liked, it was a funny book. The sex was between meh to yeehaw.

3 1/2 stars This is book two in the Heat of the Night series and though I didn't read book one I had no problem following the story line. This is a good quick read, about Andre a vampire who meets his mate(Cyn) and instead of waiting till they fall in love to change her he does the night they meet. Cyn now hates Andre but can't deny the attraction that they both share. Then Andre helps her in her time of need and Cyn starts to realize that there's more to their relationship than just physical at ...more

First, I'm only give this a three because even for a short story it seemed like it could have been more "complete" for a lack of a better word. I thought the characters were cool, and the sex scenes were unbelievably steamy and emotional-- now, this was #2, so I do understand that but it almost had the feel of a story that should have actually been included with the first novella.

Again, if you've read #1 you won't want to miss this, but I would be sure to read that one first. The writing was gre

A great short story.
it's funny and sweet but it's short. I'm a bit sad.
Just when the relationship started to take off the story was over. There was plenty of sex for such a short read. The book ended at 75% the rest are sample stories from other authors. I haven't read the first book, but the series has potential. I'm not sure if the characters carry over or not, will have to see. Otherwise this will just be a series of short stories.

Okay story for a Kindle freebie. My biggest complaint is directly related to the length. Obviously the back story is just glossed over. I'd like to have seen more of that. The ending is rushed -- before you know it, the heroine has dropped all of her objections to the relationship with the hero and all is well.

Sexy vampire with a New Orleans accent, can't go wrong there. OH, it gets better, he is uber rich, loyal and would do anything for he lady love. It is a short quick vampire romance, very enjoyable. It is what it is erotic romance.

I got this free on my Kindle. Basically the book consists of 3 sex scenes with a vampire, and took me 30 minutes to read. It is what it is, which is a free book. Don't judge!

Would have been better if it had been longer and if the characters didn't jump straight to sex. It took a while but by the end, I was invested.
Jan 20, 2011 Angie rated it liked it
Good free read but again I wish the story had been longer. I wanted to know these characters better.
Funny, quirky, quick read. I didn't read the first one and still got the story just fine.
