Review: Single White Vampire
Single White Vampire by Lynsay Sands
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This installment of the series wasn’t my favorite, but it was still entertaining. In this one, we take stuffy Lucern and throw him at a tenacious editor who will stop at nothing to get him into the publicity circuit. Oh, and the ever-present matchmaking mom helps to push these two at each other in fun ways. If you can get over the stuffiness and the fact that this is a vampire romance about a vampire romance author, this is a solid paranormal read.
Lucern is by far the stuffiest of the brothers and is completely not likeable at the start of this book. He fights against his editor’s suggestions of a publicity tour for his set of vampire romance novels. The letters back and forth were entertaining, but Luc is certainly not a nice guy. Kate is determined to prove herself as a competent editor who can manage the notoriously stubborn Luc. After being brushed off in letter, she hops into a plane to show up at Luc’s doorstep. She befriends his family and gets drafted to be Luc’s date for a wedding where it becomes clear that these two have some chemistry. Sure, that chemistry is hidden behind layers of professionalism and uptight beliefs, but it began there.
These two sort of explode into a relationship despite their attempts at remaining professional. It was nice to watch Luc’s exterior crack and have his whole life turned upside down by Kate. I found myself on Luc’s mom’s team, determined to have Luc acknowledge the needs in his life. There was absolutely not possible outcome other than this HEA, which hopefully leads into Bastien’s story.
