Throwback Thursday Review: The Vampire With the Dragon Tattoo


Welcome to another addition to my weekly blog meme, Throwback Thursday Review, where I pick one of my pre-blog reviews to share with you all.  Since it worked so well last week, this week I visited to generated a new number to use in selecting a book for you all.  Came up with 123 which counting back from my most recent reviews landed on The Vampire With the Dragon Tattoo by Kerrelyn Sparks.  Her books are such fun reads, a great mix of humor and action.  They are definitely fluff though and make great vacation reads.

Book Synopsis:

Dougal Kincaid has something to prove. After being injured in a battle with the Malcontents, he’s ready for active duty protecting unsuspecting mortals from these villainous vampires who want to rule the world. But first he has to get control of himself . . . because just the sight of a certain lovely doctor has his injured hand doing some peculiar things, not to mention the sizzling sensation that burns along his dragon tattoo.

Vampires? Vampires?! As a scientist, Leah is having trouble believing that these immortal creatures exist. But there they are, standing in front of her, asking for help in solving a genetic puzzle that can save mankind. There’s even one in a sexy kilt! Just one look into Dougal’s gorgeous green eyes sets her pulse racing. But can she trust him—and the overwhelming desire that refuses to be ignored?

My Review:

Love this author! Once I pick up her books I can’t put them down and usually manage to read them in a day. Her series is the perfect mix of romance, action and humor. Enjoyed seeing so many of the characters I loved from previous novels show up in this one, and was happy to see they made so much progress against the bad guys in this book. This was Dougal’s book and Ms. Sparks picked a great female lead for him in Leah. We also had a return of Angels in this book and personally I would love to see more of them in future additions, maybe even giving a few of them their own books. The stories in this series build upon each other. I started at the beginning, but if you wanted to pick up one just to read I don’t think you would end up too lost. However it is so much more enjoyable to start at the beginning with ‘How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire’ and not miss a minute of this fun world Ms. Sparks has created. Hope there are many more books to come in this series.
