First in the Vegas Vampires paranormal romance with the couple focus on the human Brittany Baldizzi and the vampiric Ethan Carrick.

My Take
This was cute in a light, fluffy way with a different vampire culture. They elect Presidents for 40-year terms! They have platforms and policies. In Vegas!

So far, it's mostly "good" vampires with their own personalities.

McCarthy uses this novel to set up the future of the series.The Story
Ethan Carrick needs a First Lady and Brittany Baldizzi is perfect, but Alexis Baldizzi has no intentions of leaving her sweet sister in his evil clutches.

Getting that invitation to join an online vampire slaying group seems an ideal solution, until Alexis realizes they seem to know every move she makes.

And Donatelli has no compunctions about killing his way to the top.

The Characters
Alexis Baldizzi is the feisty Las Vegas prosecutor. Brittany is her sweet sister, a free-spirited dentist who only wants to save the vampires from their soulless existence — and provide them with dental care.

The current president of the vampires, Ethan Carrick, owns a fancy hotel/casino. His chief of staff is a vampire who acts more like a fuddy-duddy politico more concerned with image and polls.

Corbin is technically, a banished vampire who continues to carry out his experiments in Vegas.

Roberto Donatelli is the vampire running on the opposite platform from Ethan's — free run for vampires and all the humans they can bite.
