Everything about him tells her to stay away, yet she can’t seem to get the vampire out of her mind.

For Roman, humans are the bane of his existence always having to follow their rules. In all his years, he’s never needed one, until now.

For Fiona, vampires are off limits, evil members of society, until the one known as Roman crosses her path and shows her he’s no different than her.

My Review

3.5 Stars!

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this book, but the fact that Heidi McLaughlin wrote it was enough for me to want to read it. I was pleasantly surprised. But, I am picky about my PNRs and this one had less PNR than I would like, but the romance aspect was pretty spot on, so I’m good.

Roman is a vampire who has little use for humans, until he needs one to get approval from the gaming commission so that he can purchase and open a casino. He is alpha, has a temper and is sexy! Fiona is the human Roman needs to help him. Her father is the head of the gaming commission. Roman’s opinion of Fiona is rather low in the beginning, but she certainly grows on him. I liked Roman. Fiona, not so much.

The story flows nicely and is entertaining. It isn’t what you normally would think of as a vampire story. There really isn’t much danger. The book leans much more toward the romance side.

A good read that kept me entertained, but was a little lacking.
