Vampires are suave, sophisticated, dark-haired, human blood drinkers, and impeccably dressed… so why does the vampire sleeping in the tub have overalls, a plaid dirty shirt, love deer blood and beer and have a full growth of red beard tangled with leaves and twigs?
Getting downsized from her job could be a blessing in disguise for Amber. Her cranky old aunt died and left her some land and an old house out in the boonies but left her cousin all the money even though it had been Amber who had taken care of her through her final days. Now she could escape to this house and write her erotic novels without any other distractions. The next one she would require a little research since her editor told her to push along with a vampire hero. Little did she know that the muse for her next novel would be found sleeping like the dead in her own bathtub.
Amber has her own ideas at how a vampire should look and act and, when she finds out that the man in her house is a newly turned vampire, it is up to her to show him the errors of his ways. Rusty is not what you would think of when you imagine a vampire but Mr. Nipples has no where else to go when his hideout is discovered by the new owner. Jumping at the chance to teach Rusty how to be the proper vampire, the two play a quirky cat and mouse game with each other that leads to some very interesting and amusing scenes between the two and Midnight, Ambers cross-eyed cat. When the two attempt to set Rusty up with a real live meal, they find more trouble than they had bargained for as Rusty must make a choice that could change their relationship forever.
Okay, I must admit I picked this title because it just appealed to me. I knew it was a vampire book and combining Rednecks with Vampires had to be a fun read…and I was not disappointed. This was a laugh out loud book. The very comical attempts to “convert” her vampire to what a traditional vamp should be made the heroine extremely real. And who wouldn’t love a redneck vampire with a name like Rusty Nipple, especially when he makes the discovery that all his body parts are still working thanks to the silly woman with the crazy cat?
