Two vampires, pretending to hate each other for a couple of centuries, agree to help each other and knock serious boots.

Not for the prudish sort! ( )

Poor Cici and Deacon. Their whole relationship is one big misunderstanding. Seriously, from the very beginning. But then fast forward two hundred plus years and the misunderstandings are still in play.

Cici now runs a dating site for supernaturals. She turns to Deacon for help when she's being targeted by an ancient foe. Deacon seizes his chance to finally straighten things out between the two of them, even though he's been stalking her for the last two hundred years. Yes, he promised her father he'd watch out for her, but come on!

Anyway, things get heated up between the two love birds and just when things are getting good, BAM she gets turned human again. Now Deacon is distant and Cici can't understand why. And now even more misunderstandings get piled on top of the ones that already exist.

Bottom line is Deacon and Cici need to have a conversation where they actually talk about more than the weather. They don't actually talk about the weather, but you know what I mean. I just wanted to slap both characters at times.

Overall this is a good story with frustrating characters. The ending of the book saved it for me, though I won't give you any specifics.

Sex and the Single Vamp.........Robin Covington

What would our world be like with Vampires and Shapeshifters living together in Washington D.C.? Ms. Covington brings us up close and personal with a matchmaking agency being focused on by a hate group, and the head of a security agency who has been in love with our heroine for two hundred and forty years! Did I get your attention?

Felicity Trent, known as Cici, has been a vampire since 1775. In Williamsburg, Virginia her family was massacred and left to die. She was saved by an unknown person, who brought her into the vampire life, and left her with someone to take care of her, and teach her the ways. In present day D.C. Cici runs a very popular matchmaking agency called Your Better Half. She is widely seen on talk shows, and the Internet, to boost the popularity of her business. It is controversial because many feel that humans and "others" should not mingle. Your Better Half has had four clients murdered, and the police are looking at Ceci as a person of interest. She needs help, and only one person has that ability.

Thomas Samuel Deacon was in Williamsburg, and a close friend of Cici's father. It actually was Josiah, as he lay dying who begged Thomas to save his daughter. Reluctantly, he did, and left her with someone he trusted. He was in love with her then, despite the feeling she had rejected him, and is very much in love with her now. His business is known as Aura Mortis Security, and Deacon's second in command and best friend is Andy Silverfox, American Indian and were shapeshifter. Cici and Deacon have not seen each other since 1943, when they both worked as spies for the U.S. He has been covertly keeping an eye on her every move since then. He's not surprised when he sees her in his office. He does not believe humans and others should be mated. Humans age and die, immortals do not, loss and heartbreak follow. He does agree that she needs help and someone to protect her. He doesn't want her money though. He proposes one night in his bed, and they can move on with their eternal lives. At least he hopes one night will do. Cici agrees with one stipulation. He has to find her Maker.

This is a suspenseful story, lots of twists, and even includes a few gasps! My imagination was totally stirred thinking of life with vampires, shapeshifters, supernaturals and humans living side by side. Of course, there is a hate group bent on destruction to add to the story.
I have read and enjoyed all of Ms. Covington's contemporary romances. This is a different path for her but equally enjoyable. Her voice is entertaining, as are her characters. Highly recommend this novel, especially if you enjoy immortals.

I received this novel from the publisher for an honest review.
