5th sentence, 74th page: By the time I had cleaned my face and hands and covered my shirt front, she was gone.
New Orleans is filled with vampires, both the temporary and permanent kind. So what happens when two of them meet?
I wasn’t expecting a story like this in a collection of vampire romance short stories. For starters, even though a vampire was in it, it wasn’t really about vampires. And for another thing, it wasn’t really all that romantic.
Although the storyline and the characters in this story didn’t really draw me in… the setting did. There is something about New Orleans that has always fascinated me. To the point that it’s probably the only American city that I’m really interested in visiting. And the fact that a vampire story is based there seems somehow… right.
