Single White Vampire by Lynsay Sands

SWM -- Successful biographer of family; books recently categorized as "paranormal romances." Doesn't like sunbathing, garlicky dinners or religious symbols. Likes old-fashioned values; spicy Mexican dishes; warm, nice-smelling necks and plump red lips. Currently unaware he's seeking a woman to share eternity.

SWF -- Newest editor of Romance at Roundhouse Publishing. Has recently discovered a legacy author dying to be broken out. (The tall, dark, handsome writer just needs go to romance conventions and be introduced to his fans.) Dislikes "difficult, rude, obnoxious pig-headed writers." Currently unaware she's met the man of her wildest dreams.

For some reason Lucerne slipped my interest in the first 2 installments. I don't remember him at all in "A Quick Bite" and he played a somewhat brief, supporting role in "Love Bites". (sounds like an athletic supporter. hmm) Anyway, this is his story. He is the oldest son of Marguerite, and the older brother to Bastien, Etienne, and Lissiana. He is 600 + years old, and hasn't found a mate yet. Can you guess why?! Yep, he's surly, and reclusive, but with a heart of gold. His new career is as a writer. He's written accounts of his parents love, his sisters, and Etienne's. They've been marketed as paranormal romance and his new editor (enter beautiful Kate) wants him to promote. He gets tricked by Momma to go to a Romantic Times convention, where the sparks fly between him and Kate. Thus the hilarity ensues. Kate, finds out he's really a vampire, and masterminds the robbery of a nearby blood bank. She also lets him feed off her, but that can only happen when they are ...hmm mmm...being intimate. So, into the men's room they go! (right, like you've never done it in the men's room of a hotel, during a convention! Puhleeeze!) During the costume ball, he gets his codpiece stuck on the linens and she has to climb under the table to "unstick" him. They finally..uh, get together! To remember that noone has condoms. Zoinks! That's pretty funny too! So they finally fall in love and she has to decide in the end, whether her one true love, is worth the sacrifice of seeing her family again. (Cue suspensful music!....) I liked this book alot. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good laugh as they watch 2 people fall in love. I give it a 4 stars for sure.
