Review: Accidentally Married to...A Vampire?
Accidentally Married to...A Vampire? by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Having fallen in love with this series after the first book, I jumped at the chance to read this second installment. I love a good vampire romance, and this book certainly met that criteria. This book details the fated love affair of Niccolo and Helena.
Niccolo is a centuries old vampire general who has been forced to endure the orders of an insane vampire queen. In a desperate plea to free himself from her rule, he begs Cimil for any way she can help him. Being the quirky and ADD-stricken goddess that she is, Cimil helps in a rather roundabout way to ensure maximum entertainment value. Helena is a human woman who is trying to find her place in the world. The end of summer is near and all her friends are scattering for their “real life” beginnings. While on a vacation, a series of unfortunate events leave her stranded in the jungle following a strange voice into a tomb. I guess these fated matings are a love at first sight deal, because it appears that way for both Niccolo and Helena. So much so that she pines for him in the weeks that follow, while he is away reacquainting himself with the world and his queen’s orders. When he reappears, it is to whisk her away to New York, without much information at all. I had some issues with this seemingly tough chick being on board with this plan, and with Niccolo doing it at all, but as the book progressed, we get some good reasoning and I started to forgive Niccolo for the overbearing move.
So instead of just dealing with vampires and gods in this book, we also get a form of vampire god hybrid that was specifically designed to hunt down the bad vampires (because the queen is crazy). Of course, they are also really hot and end up kidnapping Helena during one of her “escape” attempts from Niccolo. Much love triangle drama ensues, along with much more hotness. These books are always good for some steamy chemistry and a sigh-worthy HEA. I would read as many of these as the author can churn out because they are like little treats for my paranormal romancey brain.
