But when her neighbors placed a personal ad for he... more »r in the local paper, she never imagined she'd meet Victor Argeneau, a vampire who could have his pick of any woman--dead or alive.
Rich, powerful, and drop-dead gorgeous, Victor's the perfect man for a novice neck-biter like Elvi. He's willing to teach her everything he knows, but he'll have to do it fast. Someone's out to put a stake through her new vamp life, and only Victor can keep her safe--and satisfied--for all eternity.« less
Victor's story is as enjoyable as all the other Argeneau clan. Elvi's misconceptions as a new vamp are humorous tinged with sadness. Each story can stand alone, but I strongly recommend reading them in order to understand the family dynamics.
Book #7 in the series and just as well written as the first 6. Since each book can stand alone you don't have to read them in order, however to understand the family history you should...
Victor thinking he's after a rouge vampire is surprised to find Elvi Black and accidental vampire who only knows about being a vampire from the Dracula movie. Victor has to teach her everything he knows...
I was disappointed with this book. I found that the hero and heroine sometimes behaved out of established character and the ending felt rushed. One particular plotline that the leads were worried about throughout the entire book suddenly became a non-issue in one sentence and the main drama also became a non-issue with simply a shrug. It seems as if the author wanted everyone to have a happy ending and the last chapter wrapped everything up nice and neat with a pretty bow on top. This is the second time I've been disappointed with a book in the Argeneau series based on uncharacteristic and/or stupid decisions made by the leads.
So far this book is one of my favorites. Right after Single White Female. It is so funny. That is what I really like about her books. There is so much humor in them. Some of the stuff is the same but somehow she comes up with such different humor in all of them.

I read this book first and didn't know it was part of a series. I liked that the author had a new "take" where vampires come from and how they are not the evil dead. I just recently finished books 1, 2, and 3. It seems that you do not have to read them in a certain order to understand what is going on and each book is good enough to stand on it's own, but you will get a spoiler on who gets married.... and might ruin the ending of previous books so I would suggest starting them in order. I actually think the author is funny, and has a easy flowing writing style that makes for a fun, quick read. I think so far book 3 is my fav!
