What a fabulous vampire world Kerrelyn Sparks has built, in How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire. Forget those dark, tortured, evil, blood-sucking, coffin-sleeping vamps……….these vampires are lovable, cute and so so funny. A vampire, who does more than fight off evil vampires and a dentist who faints at the sight of blood!!!!! Now, this is an interesting take on all those paranormal romances out there!

Roman Draganesti was a monk before he was transformed into a vampire over 500 years ago. He has a good heart and wants to help his people and so far he’s invented a synthetic blood so that vampires don’t have to kill humans to live and now is also working on a formula that will let vampires stay awake during daytime. He’s gorgeous and very lonely and has given up ever finding someone who can love someone like him.

Shanna Whelan, a dentist, is working at a dental clinic, has given up her family and friends because she is in the Witness Protection program after witnessing the murder in a diner she was at with her friend Karen. She has a fear of blood since she saw her blood-drenched murdered friend. She’s funny, gutsy, and lonely and tries hard to keep her weight in check by ordering pizza almost every day!!!!!! A nerd inventor & the ditzy fang specialist!!!! Now you ask…what are the chances of these two every meeting, let alone falling in love!!!!!!!!! Well, it’s like this:

Roman is used as a “guinea-pig” by one of his scientists - who has created a life-like inflatable rubber doll with veins filled with synthetic blood which vampires can feed and be turned on as well….presto…no need for humans at all – to be the first to test this incredible invention. The doll is fantastic, gorgeous and the blood-sucking is to die for…if you want to lose a fang or two that is…because that’s exactly what happens….the rubber is so thick that one of Roman’s fangs is attached to the VANNA, the doll’s neck instead of his mouth! Now the hunt is on to find a dentist available before the sun rises otherwise Roman will be a smiling one fanged vampire forever!!!!!!!!!!!
This scene is so hysterical!!!!! I could go on and on forever about this book…it just so got to me!!!
Highlander vampires with kilts, vampire covens run by male vampires with a harem of gorgeous female vampires, vampire sex…yes that’s right….ooh…forget tantric sex with Sting……..vampire sex with the ultimate!!!!!!!! Bad Russian vampires being overthrown by kick-ass harem vampires, who now rule the coven…,.this is women’s lib in the vampire world!!!!! Vamp cuisine, Vamp Network, Vamp fashion designer…..ooohhhhhhhhhhh….this is such an enchanting world.

The romance between Roman and Shanna is so sweet and cute and adorable. None of that heavy, raunchy, raw sex….something much sexier and so so steamy. I love the interaction and dialogue between these two.

The dialogue…….witty, quirky, hilarious, funny….some of the scenes had me rolling on the floor with laughter……

If you want to read an entertaining and cool story, this is it…..This ain’t an ordinary vampire paranormal romance…it has just a little bit more bite!!!!

And I LOVE the cover……it’s beyond cool!!!!!
