Cute book, and an inviting start to the series; it doesn't take itself too seriously, it's steamy enough to raise one's temperature, but not enough to cross the boundary into pornography, and the swearing is kept to a non-distracting minimum. (I don't mind the F-bomb, but it makes me wonder, when authors use it almost as often as the word 'the', if those authors are trying to compensate for something--either a deficient story or a deficient vocabulary.) Sure, there are some moments of idiocy where the main characters are concerned (the vamps know who's hunting them and his modus operandi, but when the hunter walks into Glory's shop and whips out his hunting tools, not one of the vamps recognizes him--yeah, that makes sense), but the stupidity never reaches throw-it-across-the-room level. The author has taken the well-trodden path of vampirism and added a new twist by allowing some of her vampires to have curves, creating an image at odd with the convential portrayal of a female vampire as slender, willowy, or even downright emaciated. It makes for an entertaining, zippy, sometimes annoying and occasionally funny novel.
