I’ve got a theory. I think Dressed to Slay is actually a long-lost episode of Buffy. The Scooby Gang has been hit by another demonic curse. This time, instead of falling silent or bursting into song, they’ve all been turned into Cordelia, and I mean first-season Cordelia. (All but Giles, that is. He miraculously escapes the Cordelia curse, but picks up a Russian accent.)

The comparison breaks down pretty quickly, though, because if Joss Whedon had written Dressed to Slay, I’d probably like it bet
What a cheesy book, but for some reason I just couldn't put it down last night. As a romance book, it had its obligatory sex scene (pretty wild too if the length was any indicator) which I skipped, but other than the one, it wasn't too bad. It was like reading Buffy meets 90210 with some really bad Russian accents thrown in. Fun and totally forgettable. Shrug!
The night before her wedding, Megan Crosse and her sisters are celebrating their upcoming marriages when their fiances show up unexpectedly. When the three men attempt to kill them, they discover their fiances were turned into vampires at the Bachelor Party. The girls long-lost grandfather arrives along with a shapeshifter, Mikhail Vosteroff. Grandfather says that the girls are heirs to an ancient vampire-slaying legacy. One of them will become a vampire slayer, one will be a healer, and the thi ...more

I loved the story line right until there was sex.

I liked this book, The beginning of a trilogy, the main character -Megan, is the eldest of her triplet sisters. The day before her wedding to a guy she doesn't really love, hers and her sisters fiancés show up and try to kill them... everything is downhill from there, at least emotionally.

I thought it was ruthless that the author put the sisters in a position where eventually everything wouldn't be alright between them. I mean they are good sisters but if one of them eventually wants to kill th
Two stars for effort and, well, I had a bit of a soft spot for Mikhail. That is, until he became a pod person and suddenly turned submissive.

This book was a cross between a cheesy Buffy the Vampire Slayer fanfic and MaryJanice Davidson's 'Queen Betsy' series. Since I don't like either of those two things, I didn't enjoy this book very much.
This was annoying in many ways (stupidity as plot! bad on trans issues! bad Russian accents!) and then we got to WOLVES MATE FOR LIFE and it was all over. (Also I got all weird and angry when someone called Buffy an "old TV show." Shut up! I'm totally not... oh. Right.)

Triplet daughters learn about an ancient prophecy... 1 is a vampire slayer, 1 is a healer, and 1 is to become a vampire... this book focuses on Megan, the "oldest" triplet, and her story.

Funny, fast paced and entertaining.
I really tried to finish this book, but the dialogue was corny and immature. I don't know if the author was trying for funny, but it fell flat.
Libro senza infamia né lode. Non è brutto, per carità. E' scorrevole e a tratti anche divertente, ma niente di che.
One in a series about triplet sisters. Good for fluff reading if you aren't looking to tax your brain.

Slow start, but i think it was a good book over all. lots of romance and action.
It was okay. Kind of annoying at times though, and really rushed.
World building not interesting.
