God what a hunk of shit. This made absolutely no sense. It was like a bad fanfiction written by an unimaginative 12 year old. It was just so bad. It was so fast paced, that the romance and relationship wasn't believable at all, and the characters were weak, lame, and dumb. That's the only way to describe them. An honestly, I thought we were past this whole, 'one bite from a vampire and you will become one too' thing. How are they supposed to feed if this is the case? God.

The writing was stilted...more
Free download from Audible. My first audible book, and I really enjoyed it. It was very soothing to "listen" to a book. I would have preferred to have a male read the male dialogue, however. The story was good - the characters believable. I really enjoyed the fact that they were dancing the Tango, which IMO is the sexiest dance of all! I just may check out other Michele Hauf books.

I listened to this story and the fake male French accent the narrator use was awful. Overall, didn't really enjoy the relationship between the characters, I do think if I had read this story I probably would have given it more stars, only because of the discriptions the author used about the dances, however, with the narrators voice I just wanted it to be finished.
Plot from audiobook version of this novel (ebook plot is missing)

Vampire Alexandre Renard never met a more intriguing woman than Veronica Marshall. He waited for weeks for the mysterious woman to make her move...and wasn't disappointed when they shared a seductive dance at a Paris tango club. Their passion made him want to savor their embrace forever--even though he knew that Veronica was a slayer waiting for her chance to destroy him....

Faced with an early death, Veronica became a vampire hunte
Alexandre - vampire for 100 years - traveled to Paris to put his past behind him (a loved wife, brutally murdered - his own, unrequested conversion)... Veronica - disease that will kill her within the year - trained as a slayer, to do some good before she dies - Alexandre is her target...

and the share a tango... wonderfully verbal description of this physical duet... and the 2nd night, he follows her, rescues her from 2 vampires (killing one), takes her home - they make love... she tries to stak...more

A bit disappointed with this one I'm afraid. This was the story of Alexandre and his love, however I found the storyline a bit 'limp' and without any plot or proper direction, and really just went on about them dancing tango all the time! The reader does get to find out a bit about Alex's history, which helps fill in some gaps in the series overall, but otherwise not that great!

It's a quick read, and a break filler if you have nothing much else to do, and if you have read other episodes in the...more
This books/audiobook lightly scratches the surface of the intense sexual aspects the storyline I believe was intending to convey. While there is heat between the to main characters, it falls just a little short of the intensity I was expecting. Ms. Hauf does an exceptional job of conveying the nuances of the Tango and the sexual connotations that the dance invokes in its dancers.
Mini Review: The language of the dance is carried throughout the story, a very nice integration of literary grace as well as an interesting twist on the basic elements within all paranormal romances.

Visit me at Sweet Vernal Zephyr for my LONG review and some eye candy.
This was a free download from, I assume as a way to entice readers to purchase the rest of the books in the series. Frankly, I didn't enjoy the manner in which the book was read, and the story was a sad romp in the vampire sack sandwiched by an over-wrought and predictable plot. I like my vampires with cahones, please.
For such a short story, this is pretty good. Alexandre and Veronica are believeable characters and i liked listening to their story and hearing how it unfolded. And their love story while short was warm and sexy. My only complaint is the narrator mangles Alexandre's French accent. I'll keep my eye out for other Michele Hauf books.

Not a terrible read by any means. The recurring theme of the tango rhythm was intriguing. The characters seemed inconsistent to me, though, and I never quite felt like I got a good sense of who they were.

Free, short, and tolerable, which is more than the first 30 minutes lead me to believe it would be.
Very short! Did not love it.
