And as much as she denies it, Alexis wouldn't mind a romp in the coffin with him. But can a mere mortal, even one who risks her life for him, make a centuries-old, womanizing vampire feel something entirely new?« less
Not surprisingly, this book series has been read out of order. But not too badly. I think that all in all, I enjoyed reading this book at this time especially because of the political climate. I enjoy following politics, but this definitely gives it a new view. lol.
I imagine that there are a lot of games to stay on top of when running for president as a mortal. I never imagined how much fun it would be to picture the many things a vampire would have to face when campaigning. First, you have to do so in a manner not to make the mortals aware of your presence. Then there's the matter of falling in love with the "wrong" sister...someone killing off your staff members and trying to frame you for it...all while still running one of Vegas' more successful casino's.
Lots of fun. Fast paced. All in all, an enjoyable read.
