    Sandy Lynn is turning into a "must buy" author for me. I didn't know if I would like this book as well as Kiss and Tell by her, but she once again captivated me by her sexy, tortured hero and her very likable heroine. Melissa has had a hard time getting on with her life. Abused by her step-father, she ran away at the 14, only to be rescued by the vampire Gareth. When Gareth realizes that her step-father is not only abusive but unbalanced, he immediately takes her under his wing and introduces her to a world she had never knew existed. Years later, her step-father starts threatening her again. When she narrowly escapes his wrath, she enlists the protection of a very dangerous, mysterious vampire Duncan. Duncan has done some terrible things during his existance. When he sees that Melissa is in danger, he is compelled to help her, and is drawn to her innocence. Not thinking he is worthy of her, he fights his feelings for Melissa unsuccessfully. When Melissa is plagued by nightmares of her past, he is patiently helps her through the darkness and into the light.Duncan is wonderful. Even though he has some...well..maybe not so noble accomplishments in his time, he is truly sweet and loving with Melissa. I loved him so much, even with his many flaws. Melissa is a smart cookie, because she was willing to overlook some of his flaws too.Duncan and Melissa relationship literally blossumed on the pages! I found myself tearing up with Melissa and Duncan through some of the tough times and cheering with them in the end. If you loved Kiss and Tell, you will love this book too!If you are offended by Strong Language and Explicit Sex, this book is not for you.

    Good read. The heroine, Melissa, is a human rescued by a vampire from an abusive stepfather who was on the verge of raping her when she was 14. As an adult, she is still terrified of him. And now he is back and stalking her... The hero, Duncan, is a vampire who is drawn in by her fears. First he offers just to listen but as time passes they become more than friends. [Unlike the average erotic novel - they don't actually make it all the way until after page 100.:] They both have serious self-esteem issues...Although primarily a relationship book, there's lots of action in the stalker plot. The characters are well developed - only the wicked stepfather is stereotypically slime. Good resolution - a nice HEA.I haven't read the first two books and I had no trouble following - so I'm guessing order is not particularly important.Club Strigoi1. Beneath the Surface2. Novel Experience3. Night's Promise

    Duncan is a vampire who used to be an assassin and now works as a bouncer at a club. Melissa is a twenty-six year old human who was abused by her step-father and adopted by Gareth (also a vampire) as his little sister when she was fourteen. Now, twelve years later, her step-father reappears on the scene and she ends up dating Duncan.I think Catherine Anderson has ruined me when it comes to childhood sob stories. Melissa's background just didn't move me. Her mother died of an illness and her step-father slapped her around a bit and forced her to cook and clean. Before he could abuse her further, she ran away and ended up with Gareth. Melissa supposedly forestalled her step-father's attraction to her by surrounding herself with textbooks so that whenever he came to her room, she appeared to be studying, even if she was catnapping. I felt like, yeah right would that actually stop a guy as evil as him.The whole book felt rushed and shoddy. She and Duncan barely knew one another. Then suddenly he's telling her that she can confide in him. Their attraction to one another and "courtship" weren't believable or interesting to me. It just felt too rushed and contrived.I did like her flashback to how she and Gareth met. That's probably all that is saving it from a single star.

    Duncan and Melissa. What an unlikely pair! Duncan, a vampire, is currently working as a bouncer, but formerly was an assassin. Melissa, a human, is a young woman rescued by a vampire from an abusive home.Garreth, Melissa's rescuer, is extremely protctive of her. She hasn't told him of her recent nightmares. Duncan steps in and offers his friendship to Melissa. She doesn't trust anyone but Garreth, so he works hard at winning her trust.Very sweet story in the beginning. Duncan is one of the most contradictory characters I have known. He is an assassin by trade and considers himself to be a villain. But, time and again, he shows great compassion for Melissa. He woos her in such a way that she begins to blossom. In the end, we do see some of Duncan's "villainous" side emerge.I loved reading about Duncan and Melissa's journey of self-discovery. They each were wounded, and they each helped the other to come to terms with their pasts. For an erotic novel, there wasn't a lot of actual sex in the story. Lots of foreplay, but it fits for these characters.Not really what I was expecting - but I did enjoy it!

    Like others have said, this book was very choppy in dialogue, plot and setting but the actual story was OK. It wasn't very polished and I think that if this book had been worked on a bit more then it would have been very good.The book dragged me forward without giving vital bits of information e.g. vampires, world building and so on. It kind of felt like Lynn expected you to automatically know what was going on despite the fact that she had created her own set of rules.The main characters seemed intriguing at first but then they kind of fell flat, I think? I can't pinpoint why I lost my interest.

    The only thing I found I did not like about this book was the jump around plot and the seemingly never-ending completion of a thought. One moment your in the head of one character and something is happening or they are recalling an incident, the next moment your with another character and it's about something totally unrelated to the first character. You find out later they are this but they can't know that, or something, I don't know. I only got to page 32. I have another book by her, so I'll give it another go.

    After getting through the very confusing begining I enjoyed this book. The characters were all introduced at once in the start and had me confused from the beggining... after I established who was who it got a little smoother.It would have been a better read if it was more imformative, I thought Melissa was a vampire all the way up untill Duncan wondered if he should change her =S ... There was no background on vamps and the specifics. I felt so lost more then once.I did love the characters and the storyline. And I will read more from Sandy Lynn.

    I read this one first, and ruined some surprises for myself, but parts take place at the same time as parts of the other books.

    Much better than her other book. Definitely recommend this one. Paranormal romantic suspense.
