4 ½ stars – Vampire/Contemporary Romance

An alpha cowboy hunk + pleasure giving vampire + present day Texas setting (including my very own city of Austin) + Blaze’n hawt, hawt sex = Shawna one very happy girl! *naughty grin*

Cody Braddock is a hot, angst-laden, guilt-ridden, adrenaline junkie, alpha, champion bull-riding rodeo cowboy, and also happens to be a vampire, who draws his strength and invincibility from women’s orgasms, seeking vengeance against the master vampire who murdered his family, burned his ranch homestead to the ground, and turned him into a blood-and-orgasm-thirsty immortal.

Cody has a strict pleasure’em and leave’em, no strings attached policy, especially since all he cares about in his endless life is winning one more champion title belt and exacting his revenge, now that he’s finally tracked his family’s killer to the small Texas town of Skull Creek. On his way there, his path of retribution takes a slight detour when he meets sweet, innocent, passionate Miranda Rivers in an Austin bar, who’s looking to sow some wild oats and experience her very first man-induced orgasm, before tying the knot and succumbing to a life of boredom.

Although Miranda has a strict no cowboys rule, she decides that a wild, wanton, one time only tryst with the stud is exactly what she needs to get her long buried, dormant lust completely out of her system, for good. After one taste of Miranda, love’em and leave’em Cody can’t stop craving more, and suddenly she’s having second thoughts about her cowboys off limits code. But Cody is hell-bent set on vengeance and refuses to let a woman sidetrack him, no matter how much she stirs his lust or warms his cold heart. Can Miranda convince Cody that they belong together, forever?

Cody is the first book in a new Braddock Brothers off-shoot of Raye’s Love at First Bite Blaze series, and some of those characters make appearances in this. If this story is any indication of the fun and heat factor of the previous books, then you can bet I’ll be picking them up, and very soon! It’s an entertaining, super fun, smokin’ hot quickie read with a sexy vampire, cowboy stud and a great way to fantasize away a few hours. In fact, it’s my top favorite Harlequin Blaze read so far! 4 ½ stars!

♡Karlyn P♡ OK Shawna! What did you think?!! I never read this author, but OMG the 'cowboy vampire' plotline has me scratching my head. My guess is it will either really work, or it won't at all. So which is it?? Is there a happy medium to this one?

Dina Great review, Shawna, but I'm having a hard time picturing a "cowboy vampire". I guess I'll have to see it for myself, LOL.

Tammy Awesome review Shawna! Is this part of a series? Tex Appeal and Drop Dead Gorgeous are also about vampire cowboys in Skull Creek, TX.

Thanks, Tammy! Yep, it's part of the "Love at First Bite" series, which features those Skull Creek vamp boys, but this is the first in a "Braddock Brothers" spin-off.
