The first of the vampire novels set in Skull Creek, Texas and it's a good introduction to the setting.
Jake McCann lives on blood and sexual energy, he needs either to survive and provide him with strength, so he's used to one night stands with women and moving on. But if he's to reclaim his humanity he must kill the vampire who turned him and that means spending time in Skull Creek until his maker arrives to mark the day his maker was turned. So, when he sets his sights on Nikki Braxton it's as a source of energy, not a relationship.
As for Nikki, she's spent her life trying to find the balancing point between her Aunt - the 'good' one, and her mother the 'bad' one. One expects her to be a saint, the other wants her to dive headfirst, without a life guard, into being a bad girl. All she wants is the chance to be herself, whoever that might be.
Meeting Jake, who she believes is simply passing through and will be gone come morning, gives her a chance to be the bad girl - even if only for one night. But all backfires when rumor has her engaged to Jake before she can blink, and the infuriating man hasn't left town - and doesn't plan on doing so for another six days...
All in all a very satisfying read/listen. The narrator worked very well for this one. Her male voices didn't come off as sissy, but were well portrayed.
