I picked up this book on the recommendation of a friend who said it was better than the synopsis. Said synopsis: vampire loses a fang and rings up an all night dentist to have it fixed asap. When he arrives at the office the lady dentist is being shot at. He saves her, of course, and vows to protect her as the Russian vampire mafia closes in.It was just as bad as it sounds.The story had a chance to rise above the sum of its parts but the whole thing felt like a draft. The vampire mythology didn't feel well thought out and the character list was longer and more convoluted than necessary. The ending was rushed and the heroine was promised everything she wanted - a big house, a big dog, a white picket fence, kids, the works. Oh yeah, our hero promised to do some DNA splicing so biological children could be possible because he's awesome like that. ~eyeroll~I like reading paranormal stories because of the unusual twists they put on an imagined world. When an author sets up restrictions then wishes them away (did I mention the hero also invented a daylight potion?) I feel cheated. Let vampires be vampires, and let contemporary romance be contemporary romance. Let's not confuse the two.
