BLURB from the back cover
Kismet Knight,PhD , is a rational scientist who doesn't believe in the paranormal. She especially doesn't believe in vampires, so when she begins counselling Midnight a young girl who seems to be obsessed with vampires, Kismet just presumes it is some strange fantasy the girl has made up to cover up other problems in her life, however Kismet soon begins to wise up when she is introduced to a handsome (drop dead gorgeous, pardon the pun!) man named Devereux who claims to be 800 years old! Kismet doesn't buy into his vampire story, but she then also can't quite explain why she has such  odd reactions and strange powerful  feelings when he is near to her. Then another client introduced to Kismet by Midnight turns up almost completely drained of blood staggers into her waiting room and then two angry men force their way into her office, causing her to consider the possibility that she really has run afoul of a vampire mafia style underworld. Next to enter this ever increasingly strange reality is the handsome FBI profiler Alan Stevens, who warns her that vampires are indeed very real, and one is a murderer,......a murderer who is after her!

I was generously sent a beautiful hard cover copy of this book by Lynda Hilburn in exchange for my honest review.
I love this cover, and I have seen various other versions but still have to say this one is my favourite. It depicts the lovely Kismet and gorgeous Devereux! in an embrace.
I love, love, loved this book, I cannot recommend it enough, its vampires but not in the usual glittering, sugar coated teen way. This is Vampires for the mums! I truly would put this book as better than the Vampire Diaries and The True Blood Series. Part of me would love to see the book made into a tv programme, though I would want it to be totally accurate to the book, unlike some tv adaptations I could mention. Kismet is no young stupid girl, she's a common sense approach kind of woman who finds herself wandering deeper and deeper into this dark vampire underworld. Kismet ends up in a kind of love triangle, at the beginning of the book she has no male interest in her at all, then she ends up with the gorgeous, immortal, strong, magical Devereux (phwoooaaar) and the vampire obsessed FBI agent, Alan who isn't lacking in the looks department either (Hmmmmm). Kismet also has magical/spiritual gifts of her own that we only briefly explore maybe we will explore them more later in the series. YES there's more in this series.....I can hardly wait. The book is brilliantly written, the descriptions of the emotions so good you can almost feel what the characters are feeling. I would point out there are very mild sexual references in this book (probably no more than they will see on tv). I feel there is plenty of scope for more adventures for Kismet, Devereux and Alan. So to some up......go buy it/order it now!
