Description from amazon.com:
“Our sister is marrying a vampire.”
When the ever practical Caroline Cabot first hears those words from the lips of her fanciful youngest sister, she accuses Portia of having a wild imagination.
But when she discovers their sister Vivienne is actually being courted by Adrian Kane, the mysterious viscount rumored to be a vampire, she decides to accept his invitation to a midnight supper and do some sleuthing of her own. To both her delight and her dismay, she soon finds herself falling under Kane’s bewitching spell.
After all, what’s a proper young lady to do when her sister’s suitor arouses more than just her suspicions?
It was a welcome discovery, finding historical vampire romances. This is one of my first novels of Teresa Medeiros and such a delightful one. I had a permanent smile throughout the entire book.
The heroine, Caroline, has come to London along with her younger sister Portia to meet Viscount Trevelyan who is courting their sister Vivienne. There are rumors that the viscount is a vampire. Since Caroline is the guardian of her sisters, she feels it is up to her to dispell or, perhaps, confirm these rumors once and for all. But will she fall under the spell of the charming viscount in her attemps at discovering the truth.
The witty reparte throughout the book is so smart and never silly, totally laugh inducing. There is a lovely romance or two or three and there is evil that threatens to bring everyone down. If you want a break from dark vampire stories then this is the book to send you off in a new direction.
