The Truth About Vampires...A Rant, Rave or Review?

I know! I know! Yet another vampire book. However, hear me out. Read the synopsis, then check out my thoughts before you discredit it.

Disclaimer: This is the brooding vampire type not the sparkly and this is a sensual romance for my sweets readers. 


All her life, Seattle reporter Kristin Reed sought her breakout story. She never thought she'd find it in the crimson lair of a real-life creature of the night. Kristin never believed vampires existed—until with dark brooding eyes and a decadent chocolate scent, Dmitri Dionotte called out to her….
Dmitri and his clan's true nature was cloaked in secrecy until a warring vampire order threatened their existence. Kristin was just the woman he needed. She couldn't resist their story…or Dmitri. Her blood pulsed hot and furious when he touched her, and with his kiss, all logic fled. But each night she spent with her vampire lover brought her closer to death and destruction. A death not even an immortal could triumph over.

My first impression when I read the description was "chocolate scent?" However, after reading the story Theresa did a great job incorporating elements of her own making in this story. Although I've never been to Seattle I was impressed with the imagery and feeling of history she implemented into the story. The heat believe Kristin and Dimitri was great, the chemistry better and the ending....what you thought I was going to give it away. You will have to read it yourself and see. I read The Truth About Vampires in like 2 nights and was sad to see it end. However, the pain was short lived cause it seems this will be a series. This novel is one that you will come back and read again and again. Great Job Theresa.

 How do you guys feel about vamps sparkly or sharkly?


  1. LOL. You probably already know my preference. While I loved reading Twilight, I'm just not into my vampires sparkling...

  2. I think I have a pretty common case of vampire fatigue. By now, I can take them or leave them either way... but I guess I'd always prefer them vicious and deadly.


  3. Yeah I like the dark ones too.

    I think I'm getting blasé then I read a book like this.
