Book Summary:
If it was still beating. Angus MacKay has been undead for almost five hundred years and it's not often something, or someone, surprises him. Until Emma Wallace. The sight of this luscious agent from the CIA's elite Stake-Out team was enough to stop Angus in his tracks. But then he discovers that she's a vampire slayer, intent on killing the "monsters" who killed her parents. And it's Angus's job to stop her.
The only good vampire is a dead vampire. It's been Emma's motto since she committed her life to the destruction of these things. Now Angus MacKay wants to convince her differently.
Sure, he's a sexy Highland warrior who seems to have stepped off the cover of a romance novel, complete with brogue, kilt, and sword, but he's also one of them. And it's her job to kill him.
The war is on, but will it end in the destruction of one or both of them . . . or in total surrender to a passion for the ages?

My Thoughts

I truly get tired of the heroines that think they can take on the world alone.  And they have the nerve to get mad when they are labeled as a damsel in distress.  Please get over yourselves because their are a host of other labels that would fit.  Can we say stupid...

When will we puny humans learn that we are no match for vamps.  They are so much stronger, faster, and can make us do whatever they feel like, just to amuse themselves.  Then, they fall in love with us...or they kill us.

I vote for the first one.  If we were all smart, we'd just make friends with all the  good vamps and have a little sex on the side.  No killing please.

Anyhoo, this book centers around Emma, another member of the infamous Stake Out Team.  She thinks she's Buffy the Vampire Slayer simply because her parents were killed by vampires.  Okay, I can get with that, but when she goes out on her own trying to avenge someone who is already dead by getting herself killed...problem.

As always, there are better ways to handle all things.  Like I said, be friends with the good vamps.   Especially when a good, hawt vamp in a skirt, sorry kilt is trying to protect you.

Angus is one of the good vamps, and while the good vamps are on the verge of going to war with the Malcontents, the bad vamps, he still finds time to protect Emma.

Of course Emma is not having that, but in the end, she'll sue for the love of Angus.  Yes, sue, she subpoenas him and everything.  You will die laughing when you read why.

My Rating
Have I told you how much I love these books?  Kerrelyn Sparks outdoes herself each time.  She writes the craziest romances ever!  In this one, she kicked the fun up a notch, so I'll give it four stars.
