Desperate for a knock-your-socks-off magazine article, freelance writer, Nonnie Lonigan, decides to impersonate a vampire in hopes of debunking the legendary sexual prowess of the night creatures. All bets are off when she meets, Dante, the tall, dark, and handsome vampire who runs a sophisticated Manhattan nightclub for vamps only. Sparks fly at first glance, igniting the flames of passion that leaves them breathless and vulnerable to a militia of hunters dedicated to slaying every vampire on earth.
Cat Lovington's main characters in Lust at First Sight have sizzling chemistry that is off of the charts! This modern-day paranormal Cinderella story will not only make you smile, it will also make you dream.
Naomi, a free-lance writer who realizes that if she plans to see her next meal she had better produce a big story to sell, decides that a story about vampires and their love lives would definitely be a HOT selling topic. Where does a writer go for such a scoop? Well, she questions the local bartender who also happens to have a little crush on her, of course. With information in hand, Naomi crashes the friendly neighborhood vampire club in hopes of meeting a true-to-life (or should we say, true-to-death) vampire. She is not quite prepared for the “love-at-first” sight chemistry she encounters with the club owner Dante.
Dante is blown over by the sex appeal of this little quirky vampire impersonator. What is she up to, and is she placing her life, as well as Dante's life in danger? Dante is dying to discover all of Naomi's secrets especially those under the covers.
This smooth flowing story grabbed my interest from the very first paragraph. Mrs. Lovington's main characters in this story are just steeped in sexy! With the economy being as rough today as it is, we can all relate to Naomi's predicament; and who wouldn't be drawn to a character like Dante? He's a tall, dark, sexy and handsome protector who cannot seem to resist Naomi's unique charms.
I loved that this story carried a twist or two in it and presented a unique view from a different angle into the possible fears of a vampire's life. I found myself relieved that the bad guys in this story where not necessarily from the race we would assume they would be. Mrs. Lovington's storytelling is intriguing, as I find that the emotions of her characters were very realistic, presenting the reader with multiple points-of-view to better relate to the humanity of the characters.
This was the first story I had ever read of Ms. Lovington's, but I can promise you that it definitely will not be the last. This story was sizzling hot from the beginning to the end and my only regret was that this was indeed a short story, as I would have loved to read more about these two interesting and loveable main characters and their scorching love life.
If you love vampire erotic romance stories with a twist, then you'll love this story. I absolutely could not set this one down. What do you want to bet you can't either?
