WOMAN SEEKING VAMPIRE:
Likes to keep things casual
Absolutely no poetry
Zero romance required.
Silver Harris is over clingy men—maybe men altogether. But when she shares a toe-curling kiss with a sexy Irish vampire on New Year's Eve, she wonders if maybe it's human men she's fed up with. Silver turns to the popular vampire dating site, V-Date, only to discover that vampire men are just as unimpressive as their mortal counterparts. And her mysterious hottie? He's nowhere to be found.
Can't a girl catch a break?
Logan Byrne can't get that sassy redhead—or that kiss!—out of his head. When his boss assigns him to spy on V-Date, he meets Silver again. Turns out, the police are recruiting humans to snitch on vampires through the dating site. As the snark and sparks fly, feelings between Silver and Logan deepen. But, when old demons resurface—literally—Logan isn't sure he can shield either of them from the dangers that have been lying in wait for centuries.

Silver is the ‘it girl”, clever, pretty, mouthy and independent, an independence learned with the disappearance of her mother several years ago. When her New Year’s Eve party from hell ends with a thrown drink, a well-placed knee and a stolen Chanel jacket, she’s heading home to lick her wounds and move on when she’s suddenly face to face with a green-eyed, gorgeous Irishman. With a Twist. He’s a vampire, as instantly attracted to her fear nothing attitude as her looks and humor, as she is to the gorgeous specimen in front of her. Offering to escort her home, she’s smart enough to lead him to a false address, slinking to her own apartment later.
Patrick was a gypsy in life, a young man with healing skills, when he emigrated to London he ended up accused of murder. Imprisoned on a prison ship, he was close to death when an ancient turned him, with plans to create a gang of evil-minded, conscienceless vampires to do her bidding. Years of servitude and self-hatred, Patrick left his sire and was functioning in London, serving another ancient at his nightclub that caters to human / vampire interactions.
Many things are different in this story: the skills, talents and lore of the vampires is different, and there are few who know the secrets: something that Scotland Yard is desperate to discover. Because of Silver’s history, she has been recruited to the cause, set up with an identity and account on the newly popularized V-Date, and asked to share any information she learns. On the other hand, Patrick has been tasked by his new Ancient, Ronin, to find and glamor this new human on the V-Date site, with the intentions of her avoiding all vampires and the site itself. Of course, Silver’s is the first name Patrick is given - and he just can’t bring himself to do it.
For a debut offering, the story is clever, moves along reasonably consistently, although the inset from Scotland Yard played more of a part closer to the end, and served to wrap up some questions in Silver’s past neatly, while challenging her own conscience in her dealings with Patrick. And their connection is electric, with an easy humor that adds to the steam. Patrick is, at heart, a good man – desperate to be worthy of Silver’s love, now that he has finally found the one. With plenty of secondary characters that add to the mix in varying ways, a tension-filled climax and a wonderful epilogue, this is a fun start to a new series, making London a clear author to watch.
