Book Description:
Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow’s only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she’d like. Running all their daylight errands—from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg—gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship—and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

Cal - who would be devastatingly sexy, if Iris allowed herself to think that way - offers Iris a hefty fee for hiding him at her place until he figures out who wants him permanently dead. Even though he’s imperious, unfriendly and doesn't seem to understand the difference between "employee" and "servant," Iris agrees, and finds herself breaking more and more of her own rules to help him - particularly those concerning nudity.

Turns out what her quiet little life needed was some intrigue & romance—in the form of her very own stray vampire.

My Thoughts:
I loved this story. As usual, Molly Harper does an excellent job infusing laughter into her interesting vampire tales making for a fun-filled read.

Iris and Cal embark upon very tempestuous relationship after she saves his life from a near fatal poisoning from tainted blood. Iris doesn't really trust vampires and Cal sees humans as little more than servants. However, throughout their journey to uncover the orchestrator behind the poisoning, they find that they tolerate each other....maybe even like each other....and a little more.

The story was witty, interesting, and funny from page one to "the end". Well done!
