Tall, Dark & Fangsome - Michelle Rowen

Sarah Dearly's positive attitude is waning. Perky and bubbly no longer describe her and frankly being a vampire is the least of her worries. Gideon Chase, leader of all vampire hunters, is being consumed by Hellfire and his only hope is that Sarah will bite him during a ritual under the full moon and turn him into a vampire. To ensure her help he has threatened to kill all the people she loves, inc. Thierry, her master vampire boyfriend and she has no doubt that he can and will do it. He has also demanded she break things off with Thierry and never see him again, which she pretends to do but it isn't easy to protect someone when you're forced to keep your relationship a secret. However Sarah isn't the pushover she used to be - in fact, she was recently cursed to be a nightwalker and when she removes the magical necklace that keeps her hungers in check, she's as dangerous as any blood-thirsty, horror-movie vampire and not just a girl-next-door with fangs. However, her nightwalker self is becoming dangerously attracted to Gideon. Can she cure herself of the curse in time to destroy Gideon and save her true love, so they can live happily together forever?

My thoughts:
I found that this was the last one, oh that is what I get for starting a series at book 4 ;) and then reading book 5. But at least I can go back and read the first one.

Where to start then. Our dear heroine Sarah is in trouble. In this book she has a dark side and a light side. The dark side is clearly an idiot so that is not the side to root for. As she has been cursed to be a bloodthirsty monster by a witch. I actually liked the bad side in a way too, it was a good bad side. And her true self is sad cos the evil guy made her break up with Thierry. Brooding ancient Thierry who is all hot..and well brooding.

As for the evil guy he is around quite a lot, Gideon, vampire hunter, ass and plagued by hell fire (he deserves it). But he is a charming snake and that makes it hard to hate him.

The action in this is all about Sarah being blackmailed by Gideon. Trying to survive with her curse, missing Thierry and happy banter with friends. Because the book is light and that is why I like it. Light paranormal works so well for me. I read them fast and they are relaxing for my brain.

Conclusion:
Light with a happy ending. All is well that ends well. Candy for the brain.

I always go for the hot and brooding boys, so I think I'm going to like Thierry! Sounds like I should start with book one though!

Carole Rae said...

hahaha, I love the title and the cover page. :D

Aurian said...

Lol, I have not read this series, but you make it sound fun and stupid at the same time. I do hate TSTL heroines though.

Darlene said...

Candy for the brain is a good thing sometimes.

Carrie at In the Hammock Blog said...

the cover is adorable! glad the story is lighthearted too.

Chris said...

Wow, that cover is soooo different from the one on the book I read!

Karen said...

I love the cover. I read the first book in a series by Michelle Rowan but never continued - I wonder if this is that series. I guess i'll have to check.

Blodeuedd said...

Well you can do like I did ;) They can be read fairly good in which ever order. But yes starting at book 1 is best in the end

Blodeuedd said...

The title is just awesome!

Blodeuedd said...

She is not TSTL. She knows the guy is bad but she has a bad little vamp in her that wants to come out and play

Mel said...

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Oh I do enjoy candy reads. :) So glad this was a fun one to kick back with and relax. And the series isn't over for you, pulling a Melissa and starting late. ;D

I've got one of this authors other books on my Kindle. I'm anxious to give her a try as her books sound like that would be right up my alley!

Anonymous said...

I adore this title! I would skip the first 3 and just read this one first :)

I love that cover. It sounds like a good series.

Felicia the Geeky Blogger said...

No, I have actually heard this are great light escape reads! I love those :)

Jenny N. said...

I don't think I could ever like Gideon...Team Thierry all the way!

Cherry said...

Ah... me being OCD, would have to start with book 1 ;)

Blodeuedd said...

I am so bad, I do have a case of book ocd now and then but sometimes I just jump ship and goes crazy, lol

Blodeuedd said...

I was bad, very very bad , but it seems it worked out :D Lucky me cos else I would have been scarred for life

Blodeuedd said...

Blodeuedd said...

I hope that you will enjoy which ever book you have :D

Blodeuedd said...

Lol, well it does work ;)

Blodeuedd said...

It's cute :D

Blodeuedd said...

He is bad bad bad (and not in a good way). So yes team Thierry :)

Blodeuedd said...

It's so light and easy. I totally crave that sometimes, not that I read dark books, but cos I need a quick fix now and then

Blodeuedd said...

Lol, I am like that too, but lately I have tried pushing my boundries

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

Oh, I don't think I could resist this book just because I love the title so much. LOL

And a happy ending always works for me.

Alexis @ Reflections of a Bookaholic said...

So are you going to start from the beginning? Is it the kind of book where you now know everything from the earlier books so it is pointless to read the earlier ones?

Teddyree said...

I can't cope with reading out of order but loved the "candy for the brain" comment LOL

Blodeuedd said...

Lol, I saw a book today that I totally wanted for the sole reason of the title in question

Blodeuedd said...

Well it does feel silly to go back since I know what will happen. But then again this is pnr, you still know what is gonna happen after the first page

Blodeuedd said...

Lol, good, cos it was :)

Blodeuedd said...

All of those things yes :)

Staci said...

Nothing wrong with brain candy. I live for those types of books more often than not!

Blodeuedd said...

Lol, same here :)
