An undying classic from Katie MacAlister, Sex and the Single Vampire is a paranormal romance lover’s delight, ideal for fans of Lynsay Sands and her Argeneau vampire family novels. This perennial New York Times bestselling author knows what readers are hungry for: sexy and funny tales of otherworldly passion featuring hot, dark, immortal alpha heroes searching for their happily forever afters. In Sex and the Single Vampire, MacAlister’s Dark One is an arrogant, studly romance novelist whom struggling “summoner” Alie mistakes for a specter…and recognizes as the fantasy man who has lately been invading her dreams!
Definitely loving the Dark Ones Novels now. The first one, A Girl's Guide to Vampires, was interesting, but not amazing. I liked the mythology of the Dark Ones and found the characters mildly interesting. Then i read a Dark Ones short story in Cupid Cats and really started to get into the series.
This one was much more entertaining than the first one. Partially because there were vampires, demons, and psychics. I liked the expansion of the universe. There was even a few references to werepeople (highlighted in the Cupid Cats story). I loved the two main characters. Allegra is such a strong character, I instantly loved her. And Christian is just the right amount of dark and mysterious. On a weird side note, my mental picture of Christian is very different in this book than the first one. I know he is a side character in the first book, but somehow it doesn't feel like the same person. Along those same lines, even though I liked Joy and Raphael in the first book, I wasn't too keen on their characters in the second book. Otherwise, I really did like the characters. Even the demons were interesting.
Now I really want to read the rest of the Dark Ones novels, but I think I need a change. More fantasy on the list, but maybe not more vampires for a while.
