Jan 25, 10

bookshelves: smut, stockholm-complexes, vampires, sci-fi
Read in January, 2010

For it's smut genre, I thought it was pretty creative with incorporating vampires and aliens into the same plot. The premise of the story was nicely done, you have the "tortured" prince and a vampire who suffers from amnesia. 2 troubled people slam into each other, and everything they least expect seems to happen to them. Devyn reminded me of Barney from 'How I met your mother' series only in the sense that they are both egotistical playboys. Unfortunately he did not come with Barney's sense of humour. I wouldn't say this book had any humor in it, really...that kind of flirtation is not very humorous (it didn't even make me chuckle, lets put it that way). I would have rated it higher, if not for the fact that it gets irritating once you have a heroine who can do anything. I mean anything. Showalter obviously wanted to have a goddess for her vampire heroine. And of course, Devyn is the irresistable stud of the story...who happens to be an incompetent king turned intergalactic police...where did that come from?! Anyways a light read,which I happened to be in the mood for,it is quite good and I would recommend this for anyone who wants to pass the time with a light read.
