Didn't care for the writing style, hope someone else enjoys it more. IMO the plot and dialogue were annoyingly trite and sophomoric. A wallbanger, DNF (did not finish).

Cute. Better than a lot of things in this genre. Predictable story line, but no worse off for it!

Part one in the series. Three sisters (a slayer, a healer and a vampire)involved in par-normal romances. Vampire chick-lit.

Little hard to follow at times, but a good start to a trilogy.

The night before her wedding, Megan Crosse and her sisters are celebrating their upcoming marriages when their fiances show up unexpectedly. When the three men attempt to kill them, they discover their fiances were turned into vampires at the Bachelor Party. The girls long-lost grandfather arrives along with a shapeshifter, Mikhail Vosteroff. Grandfather says that the girls are heirs to an ancient vampire-slaying legacy. One of them will become a vampire slayer, one will be a healer, and the third will become a vampire. And, the vamp who murdered their mother is in town and gunning for them. Mikhail believes Megan will be the sister who turns into a vampire. He is there to watch over her in case she turns unexpectedly. Megan finds him sexy, but she is also interested in the cute cop who is investigating her fiances disappearance.

This was a fun book. Even though the first 20+ pages were a overwhelming with all the information being dumped on the reader, it was soon sorted out. The story is told in first-person from Megan's point-of-view and is very amusing. This book had a "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" feel to it. I'm going to quickly pick up the second book to see what happens next. My rating: 4 Stars.
