From the Publisher: Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker—and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead. Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she’s traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude— and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan’s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone’s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood.
My Review: This author was new to me and I couldn't put the book down. The character development was fantastic and the story was a very smooth read. I really enjoyed this book. The main character Merit, was sassy and sarcastic but really fun. The male lead, Ethan, was very good and extreemly sexy. One could understand wanting a relationship with this vampire, although you can tell that it would be work because he needs to be taught about the modern woman. Merit is definitely the woman to do that. The secondary characters were equally well written and very good support for the main characters. Really looking forward to the sequel "Friday Night Bites"
