Billie Joyce Nolan is the type to take on life and go for the gusto all it has to offer, until she arrives in New York City and decides to take a short cut to her hotel.
Daniel Cedric Phillips is a Sire, and thanks to a couple of women in his past, has sort of been turned off women of late. For some reason they found him too controlling.
Before Billie Joyce knew what hit her, she takes a shorter route to her hotel, only to find herself being accosted by some goons. When she wakes she has no idea where she is or what happened to her clothes. Dovey is a vampire and found Billie bleeding in the alley, and turned her into a vampire. When she needs help to clean up her mess, she summons Daniel for help. Billie wakes and has questions that Daniel is happy to supply answers. She finds him stubborn. He finds her strange the way she passes out at the sight of blood. More importantly, she cannot believe she is now a vampire. Between learning she is part of the undead, and constantly bickering with Daniel, that only brings them closer to becoming great friends with perhaps some benefits.
Ms. Leaf always creates delightful stories that entertain. She has a way of spinning some wit into her stories making them interesting. Even Dovey appears a bit scatter-brained in a way that makes the story a fun read. Not to mention Billie’s faintness at the sight of blood. I liked the way Billie and Daniel do not hit it off immediately but they gradually grow on each other. Dead Faint is a different kind of paranormal vampire read that allows this reader to see vampires in a whole different light.
