Date With A Vampire by Raine English
Tempted # 1
Date With A Vampire is the first installment in the Tempted series by Raine English.
I have been stewing over this review for a few days. Not that I am torn but more like confused. I really wanted to like this book, but the like turned into confusion quickly.
The plot could have been great with the whole reality TV bachelorette thing going on, but unfortunately it missed the mark. The characters will not connecting to each other and therefore I felt no connection to them.
The ending was confusing as to where this series will go with all the vamps but a few healed I can’t imagine a next book.
She gave him her heart, but he wanted her soul…
Melody Johnson dreams of meeting a man as dashing and wonderful as the heroes in the books she reads. Being a realist, she knows that’s highly unlikely. Besides, men always leave her for someone more exciting—until she wins the lottery, that is. Pursued by scores of men happy to help spend her fortune, Melody longs to have her quiet life back. When a network executive offers a reality show, she seizes the opportunity to show the world she’s off the single’s market. Melody leaves her quaint hometown in New York for a sunny island in the Pacific where twenty gorgeous bachelors will vie for her heart and where she can stage a phony engagement. What she never expects, though, is to fall in love with a vampire.
Guystof LeBreque is a four-hundred-year-old Romanian vampire who hates the taste of blood. He’s roamed the earth for centuries, loathing the monster trapped inside him. After his mother’s death at the hands of vampire-hunting assassins, Guystof vows never to turn a woman into a vampire. But when his father gives him an ultimatum to marry a rich woman in sixty days or lose his legacy to his bloodthirsty brother, Guystof battles his conscience. Does he keep the promise he made to himself, or does he keep his brother from power? Guystof resorts to drastic measures. He becomes a bachelor on a hit reality show. What he doesn’t anticipate is losing his heart to the woman whose mortal life he must end.
