Love Fang - Vampire book review

Love Fang

by Susan Blexrud
First Edition April 2009
DCL Publications
[available as an ebook]

Love Fang could almost be classified as a sweet romance except for the torrid love scenes.

Vampire John Wright has been around since the time of England's King Henry VIII. Now he resides in Florida. To keep his daytime life running smoothly while he sleeps, he has the able help of a brash, heart of gold, mortal assistant named Doreen.

Sadly even immortal vampires have problems. John has an immediate need for a dentist. His impacted fang hurts like heck. Fortunately Doreen finds a dentist with evening hours. The lovely Dr Lauren Marsh takes care of what she believes to be an unusually long canine by pulling it out. Not exactly the result John had hoped for, but with today's technology the "tooth" could easily be replaced.

When these two genuinely nice people meet they immediately know they were meant for each other. But the course of true love never runs smoothly. There are hurdles to overcome, which I won't tell you about. That would be spoiling the fun of reading this delightful story told with grace and wit.

Patricia, Thanks so much for the lovely review. Keep doing all you do for readers and writers of vampires. You keep the genre state-of-the-art, or should I say state-of-the-macabre? You turned me on to the Penguin Paranormal video series, and now I'm hooked. I loved the recent interview with Charlaine Harris.
