Daniella Delaney is determine to open her cupcake shop in one of Chicago's quieter districts. But Nick St. George, head of the local business association, is just as determined to prevent Daniella from opening her shop in his neighborhood.
Because they don't eat cupcakes in Vamptown.
And Nick needs to keep his clan's secrets … well, secret. Or the lives of his vamps will be at risk.
Usually Nick would simply control Daniella's mind and send her on her way. But he discovers that she is mysteriously immune to mind control. Word about her immunity to vamp compulsion gets out, and she's suddenly a wanted woman. Nick wants her, too, but for a different reason. He must fight his attraction to Daniella.
Or he could be the death of her.
Daniella is a chatty, fun, funny character with many clever lines. The humor is tongue-in-cheek and subtle, never entering into slapstick or over the top territory. The book is a witty, light read.
Nick plays Daniella's brooding, dark, straight man to Daniella's sunshine. He doesn't think of himself as an honorable hero, but is one just the same.
Between the humor, the development of the relationship between Nick and Daniella, the danger Daniella faces, and the mystery of her immunity to mind control, the book moves along at a good clip. It's a fast read.
This is a very tempting book, in more ways than one. The descriptions of Daniella's various cupcakes will make your mouth water and send you to the kitchen to whip up a batch of blood red velvet cupcakes.
Make mine with cream cheese icing, please.
