When Meg spots a young woman alone in the Pigalle district of Paris at night, she's intrigued. She has to know her story and find out why she looks so sad and alone. After introducing herself, Meg realizes that she and Grace have a lot in common. But when they decide to go and grab a drink together, they discover a mutual love that could bond them forever.
A lesbian vampire with romantic taste in architecture falls for a het chick on the rebound. Meg is a modern day vampire living in Paris who struts her stuff down the Boulevard de Clichy. She preys on the evil and depraved. She’s fueled by anger towards men who are mean or abusive to women. She’s a strong, no-nonsense lady with a good heart and deep sense of compassion. Grace is unsure, hurt badly by a recent break up and feeling lonely, unwanted and unfulfilled.
Meg sees Grace and decides that she likes what she sees and she goes after it. Grace seems mesmerized instantly by the sophisticated, confident Meg. Meg shares her great love of Sacré-Coeur basilica with Grace. They grow closer over coffee and girl-talk. They really click. There’s no significant interpersonal conflict between the lovers as they come together. Most of the conflict is intrapersonal for Grace. She’s feeling poorly about her break up and the fact that her boyfriend didn’t turn her on in bed. She never reached orgasm with him. She worries that she is boring. She’s so confused now.
Meg is all sympathy and Grace is a grateful sponge soaking up the attention. Once the ice is broken about Meg being a lesbian-vampire and having lesbian-vampire desires for Grace, Grace responds eagerly. She didn’t know until right this moment, but this is what she’s always wanted and waited for her whole life, sharing sex with a gorgeous female vampire. The sex is hot and sexily written. Through Meg’s protective and rather dominant lovemaking and their sharing, Grace finds her true strength. The strength to love and be loved.
I really enjoyed this short, sexy story with lots of girl-talk, coffee with a vampire twist in the shadow of Sacré-Coeur. I’d gladly recommend it to others who enjoy paranormal and F/F Romance. If you’re in the mood for an uncomplicated, quick satisfying read with F/F romance, don’t miss Bite With Height.
