Elvi Black has been turned into a knockout vamp thanks to an accident. She tries to avoid the sun and even gave up garlic. Elvi gets as much sleep as possible but maneuvering in and out of a coffin is not always an easy task. Mabel, her friend and part owner of the Mexican restaurant inside their bed-and-breakfast, decides Elvi needs to find someone to share her life. When a personal ad is placed in the local paper for her to find someone, Elvi is surprised to see who answers.
Victor Argeneau is a vampire who can have any woman he desires, whether dead or living. He has everything that turns a woman’s head. He is rich, powerful and handsome. He also intends to educate Elvi on everything she needs to know. In no time he learns she is in deep trouble with the council and he must pull out all plugs to keep her safe.
After Mabel puts an ad in the paper, it appears all chaos breaks out as Elvi tries to find her life mate. When Victor answers the ad, things spark between the two. He has to hurry and teach her everything she needs to know about a vampire that does not come from a movie. Victor notices Elvi has a tendency of rushing to do things before she first gives it any thought. With the council wishing to pronounce judgment, Victor must make sure no one puts a stake through her heart. Elvi has a secret but unless she puts all her trust in him there could be serious consequences preventing them have a passionate eternity together.
The Accidental Vampire is a fast moving read. I really loved the magnetic couple of Elvi and Victor. The dialogue between them is awesome. It is so robust it just grabs the reader and takes them on an incredible ride not to be forgotten. Mabel adds some sidekick excitement to the situation with her witty moments that puts a spin on things. Lynsay Sands is an author that I look forward to reading more of her luscious vampire series. She molds the main and secondary characters in a way they are unforgettable. This is a delicious read where the bite is truly tantalizing.
