This was the second book I have read by Ms. Devlin. I loved it even more than the other book I read of hers. I have added the rest of this series 'My Immortal Knights' to my to-be-read book list and once I catch up on the series I will patiently (okay impatiently await for my next fix). I was captivated from the beginning and laughed numerous times while reading. I picked this book up while it was on the amazon free list, (a hell of a bargain for me!) and ended up highlighting several lines on m...more

Okay concept. Too much awkward chit-chat during sex. No transitions between most scenes and read as if large portions of the story were savagely sawed off to make novella word count. Minimal chemistry with the couple. In essence, poorly written (and edited) porn.

Just didn't appreciate the constant hardcore talking all the time, romance isn't a four letter word

A bit of a disappointing read. I hadn't expected stunning literature, but I had thought it would be fairly decent given that I've read other works by Ms. Devlin and have greatly enjoyed them. Silent Knight, which is a least loosely related to this series I believe, is one of my favorite shorts, and I'd hoped this would be much like it. Instead I found myself shaking my head and rolling my eyes a lot at the often stilted dialog, and situations that resolve themselves far too easily, usually by th...more

I read another Delilah Devlin book (my first ever) last week and absolutely adored it. So I thought I was pretty lucky to find this one sitting on my kindle. It was a freebie and let me tell you, I never would've picked it up if I'd seen the original cover. Holy ugliness Batman, that first cover was horrid.

Anyway, from an entirely marketing point of view, I think having this book as a freebie isn't the right thing for Delilah Devlin. It is nowhere near the greatness of the other one I read and...more

First book of Ms. Devlin's My Immortal Knight series...interesting. Ms. Devlin had opted for an imperfect heroine to a perfect vampire-hero--that's really cool. And the H/H's personalities contradicts each other that I had almost not seen the connection the two lust-driven protagonist could have...but they did!

Storyline: Emmaline Harris meets the perfect man at a Halloween party. After he rescues her from the unwanted attentions of another partygoer, she succumbs to his kisses and spends an even...more

I actually liked this book. It was my first Delilah Devlin book so I had no expectations apart from steamy sex, since it´s a EC book. I usually don´t like "funny" books so I was pleasantly surprised.

Emma is conned by her so called best friend to attend a Halloween Party at a club. When Emma gets there she is the only one in costume. Emma get´s caught by a bad guy and get´s rescued by the good guy. And, boy, is he yummy.

The story is simple and light hearted. Emma is full of questions and tend to...more

I wanted to like this. There were such promising elements but it just didn't work, and I'm bummed.

Emmy goes out on Halloween and finds herself in mortal danger in a vampire bar, Dylan comes to her rescue.

Dylan is yummy sexy and I would have liked more of him but Emmy was just TSTL. I didn't hate her but she was so silly I couldn't like her.
I know the author was going for funny with her but it fell flat.

There is lots of sex and it could have been so good but it was ruined by Emmy's ridiculous cha...more

3 1/2 rounded up to 4 stars due to the sheer comedic value of the dialogue between Emma, our Rubanesque heroine, and Dylan, our Alpha-male vampire with the patience of Job.

The story starts with a Halloween party, so it fits with my October reading theme. Emma is a great character: she tends to exhibit what I call the gumball-machine syndrome - that is, anything idea she tends to think pops straight out of her mouth without mental editing. Thus, she tends to say a lot of things that end up funny...more

NOT REALLY! Too everything. Not even too interesting of a read. I like somewhat dirty but this was too much.
Mara
I really do not know how to tag this novelette (100 pages ca). Usually, EC imprints are really out of my comfort zone, not because they are kinky or too explicit. Simply because, with some exception, they are worthless and boring porn. This book was saved by its sheer absurdity that made it "funny". And If you are laughing this hard, you can't really consider it that bad. :) Mind you, it's still porn (no story to talk of), but at least it wasn't boring. :)

Too much chatty sarcasm. There's a difference between two people joking with each other during sex and everyone having fun and what Delilah did in this book. The sarcasm was misplaced and felt like it was trying to force a connection between the two main characters, as if during their first encounter they knew each other so well they could banter like that. It didn't work and was distracting. Disappointing, because I am a fan of Delilah's and I expected to like it more.
Judy
This is an Ellora's Cave book so it is definitely on the erotica side.

Emma Harris innocently goes to a vampire club to be with her friend Monica. Only Monica pawns her off on a bad vampire named Nicky. Lucky for Emma that Dylan O'Hara comes to her rescue. It is the first in a series titled My Immortal Knight and the story is continued in the next book. I enjoyed the story line but it is more erotica than I enjoy. This was a free book.
MK
This contains a whole lot of sex scenes for a short read. Although I enjoy the charcters' banters, I fully wish that wouldn't have sex at all chapters. Since Emmy is a human, how she can have a stamina like Dylan have? There should be a whole lot cause why Nicky done what he have to Dylan in the first place. Anyway, this story could have been better if it includes a whole lot of action and more plot. It is still an okay ine sitting read.
Toni (U.A.C.)
This is a very unfortunate cover. He's got a bucktooth look going on and when I imagine what he sounds like in my head it's a toss up between Bugs Bunny and Sid the Sloth with her oooing and ahhhing over his whispering lisp of how her body looks like a juicy carrot.

The story/dialogue isn't amazing either, but it's good for a laugh, and since it has a comical quality to it so still has value.
Catherine
Wow...be prepared to get all hot and bothered while reading this book. It's quite steamy.

I loved that Emmy was a little pudgy and semi-insecure about herself. The story moves pretty quick and the characters are entertaining (especially liked the British/Irish lingo thrown in there).

Good read, although the plot is pretty straight forward and there are zero surprises.

Emmy Harris is absolutely a hoot!! Her observations on life, sex, and love are beyond outrageous and such fun to read. And of course, her 186 year old lover doesn't appear too bad, either. Just a very good first book in a series that is great fun with lots of action and wonderful characters to boot.

Read the other day after I got it free and forgot to review.
I did not finish. What I read made me think the chick in this was mentally about 15/16. Creepy much??!!!
The author also tried hard to use every word for the female anatomy that she could think of.
Obviously it just wasn't my cuppa...

A short read but a good one. A little action, a little adventure, and a LOT of sex! First sex scene, I have to say, was probably one of the most awkward sex scenes I have ever read. BUT Devlin made me laugh and kept me interested. Definitely going to have to put book 2 on my TBR list!!
Kelley
This was a quick read. Mainly because I skipped half the book, having no interest in the explicit sex scenes. It was a freebie when I got it and I wanted a Halloween read for Halloween, so I picked this one. I doubt i'll read any more in this series.
Angel Brown
I enjoyed this a lot. At first I was kind of skeptical, but found it to have a really solid story line. I couldn't help but love the characters Ms. Devlin created. I will be getting more of her work in the future to read.
Ruby
interesting plot but overburdened on the erotica equation. it would have been just as good (or better) with only half the sex scenes. i have no problem with PWP stories but this went overboard. pass this one by.
Mona
This was a fun little book with pornographic moments. The humor was cute and the story line was a quick read. I think I will look into book two and give the rest of the series a try.
Donna
This book IIRC was quite hot. I am a big fan of Ms. Devlin's and have most of thebooks in this series, but it shown that the book was 1st published in Nov 2009. I bought it in 2003.

I have a habit of not reading blurbs and just buying books. I liked it because it was a nice change for a vampire novel.
Lea Barrymire
Looks like I found another series to read! As always Delilah wrote a sexy, funny, and fast paced vampire book.
Kathryn
Gah! Don't bother is my recommendation. I can't even claim this to the GR 2012 Challenge.. not even worth it.
Meagan
I couldn't even finish the last 20 pages, which is saying a lot since I LOVE Delilah Devlin's works.
