Samantha, a successful 300-plus year old vampire needs a break, so her best friend arranges for her to go on a cruise with a sexy shifter companion. Too bad Samantha did not find out about the arrangement until after the ship had left port.
Perry has wanted Samantha for a very long time, since he first saw her months ago. He helped get Samantha on the cruise to hopefully develop a relationship. One that Samantha is not sure of until danger brings the two closer together.
A madman is threatening the vampires on the cruise, and is using UV lights, mind control of the humans on board, and has control of some of the ships safety controls. Perry and Samantha must protect each other and the innocents aboard the ship.
I loved this book and think the characters make a wonderful couple. In one part of the book Samantha corrects Perry’s word usage and it is written in a way that makes the scene so very charming. The two fit together almost perfectly. The more you find out about them, the more like them, but that also caused me one small logic jump. The villain is wonderfully horrible, and if this were a movie there would be “boo hiss boo” from the audience at him. A cruise ship setting is a perfect place for a mystery. The sex is hot and colorful and the way it is written works well with the paranormal aspects of the book. Shanghaied is a fantastic summer read.
