Valerie Dearborn wants a life as light and fluffy as cotton candy, but it's more like a puffer fish: pointy, unusual, and - if not prepared exactly right - deadly. In London for graduate school, Val knows she's finally free. Her father and ex-almost-boyfriend are back in California and she's out of the Vampire hunting biz for good. Or is she? She draws the attention of Lucas, a 1600 year old Vampire, and King to his kind. He's also wicked hot.
As golden as Lucifer, and just as tempting, he makes Valerie an offer she can't refuse - help him find out if the Others (Empaths, Fey, and Werewolves) still exist or he'll stop protecting those she loves. Lucas tells her that Empaths were a Vampire's biggest weakness before going extinct hundreds of years ago.
While the Fey or a Werewolf might kill a Vampire, an Empath could enslave them, seducing or harming with emotions at will. The one detail he leaves out? Valerie is an Empath. And after 1600 years of an emotionless existence, Lucas wants Valerie like a recovering alcoholic wants a wine cooler. Can she keep those she loves alive, stop Lucas from munching on her, survive a fanged revolution, and still find a way to have that boring, normal life she's always wanted? Probably not, but boy is she gonna try!

Many books seem to have the same story line
It was very predictable. The characters were okay and some likable or interesting. The story was lacking humor, wit, action and the love story was weak and uninteresting. The book did not divert my attention from chores or anything.
Probably not. The story was very one dimensional. I think she follows a formula as many do but I prefer a Diane Duvall or Jeanine Frost book with action great characters and a world that envelops you in.
She was good. Her male voices could be improved but she was okay.
(Many people will like this!!!!) I am spoiled by the authors I mentioned. It took me many tries to finish this book over years. I was determined to finish some books or if I could not then to write a review.
Interesting new series
