Erin McCarthy,
Vegas Vampires #1: High Stakes
(Berkley, 2006)

I love Erin McCarthy. Even if you don't like vampire fiction, you will like this book, which has Erin's typical laugh-out-loud humor, with fun and intriguing characters that make this book a real page-turner. I didn't want to set it down.

Ethan is a vampire seeking vampire public office. He feels he needs a wife to seal the deal, and he sets his sights on his dentist, Brittany, the stereotypical girl next door. He takes her to his hotel/casino for a few days to woo her.

But when Brittany's sister Alexis gets wind of what's going on, she charges in to get her sister back. Ethan, meanwhile, has already begun to think Brittany is too straight for his tastes. Brittany, on the other hand, knows what he is and wants to save the vampires from damnation. Alexis thinks everyone has lost their minds.

This is a fun, funny story that leaves you hanging and wanting more. It is the first in a series of three (so far). I am looking forward to all of them.
