Based on title alone, I expected the main focus of the book to be on the vampire twins Julie and Marc. Of course, they do have a prominent role in the story, having to do with the unique way they came into being. However, it is the story of their parentage that seemed to take a center stage in the book.

This book is set in present time with several flashbacks to late 1960s San Francisco.

The transitions back and forth between times were smooth and easy to follow.  One thing I appreciated was the time period in which the flashbacks take place.  After all, how many vampire stories have you read that take place during the hippie movement?  I found this to be very original.

I do wish the author had elaborated more on the character’s descriptions.  I had a hard time envisioning the “look” of the character, which I believe really adds to the enjoyment of reading.  Overall, though, I did enjoy the book.

Forte has laid the foundation for a very interesting story in this first installment and I anticipate great things with the books to come.  I am anxious to see the development of the twins. With the direction the story seems to be going, it is likely this will be a series with a lot of potential.

When you live forever, you’re bound to make a few mistakes.

Children of Night, Book 1

1969 San Francisco. World-weary Conrad Quintano should have known better than to fall in love with a human—much less Suzanne Fischer, the barely legal, adventure-seeking hippie beauty known as Desert Rose. And the very last thing he should have agreed to do was to raise her babies and protect them with his life. But even twelve-hundred-year-old master vampires can find it hard to reject a deathbed request—especially when issues of love, guilt and blood are involved.

Present day. Raised in virtual isolation, twins Marc and Julie Fischer have always known they are vampires. But they never knew their parentage—or their unique status in the vampire world—until their “uncle” Damian comes to fetch them home. The family reunion, however, isn’t what they expect. They’re thrust into a world for which they’re totally unprepared. And the father they expected to see, Conrad, is missing.

How to find him and whom to trust? Solving the mystery of betrayal and vampire family values will prove the Beatles had it right. All you need is love and an occasional side of blood.

Warning: While reading this book you may experience any of the following, an increased desire to wear flowers in your hair, dress in tie-dye or nap during the day. Other symptoms may include an intolerance to sunlight, an aversion to garlic-flavored tofu and a pronounced urge to bake or get baked.

With such a crazy title as, The Zillionaire Vampire Cowboy’s Secret Werewolf Babies, I wasn’t sure how I was supposed to take the book seriously. Well, you aren’t supposed to! The authors actually have a warning in the book letting the reader know it’s a parody and not to be taken too seriously. Once I read that, I decided to just sit back and enjoy. I’m glad I did. I was already laughing before I got through the first paragraph. With character names like Rock Fangsworthy, Buffi Van Pelt, Billy Bob Bobson, and Chastity Feelsgood you just know you’re in for a wild story.
Even with the hilarious names, and the fact each chapter was written by a different author, the story wasn’t all fluff. The entire book flowed well from author to author and never went beyond a level of silliness that made it painful to read. Rock and Buffi’s storyline had depth and even being presented in a comedic way kept me reading to make sure they got their HEA.

If you’re looking for a good story to lighten your mood and make you laugh out loud, then you need to pick up The Zillionaire Vampire Cowboy’s Secret Werewolf Babies! You’ll love the way these characters interact with each other. Who wouldn’t want to be serenaded with KISS’ “I Wanna Rock N Roll All Night” by a drunk, sexy vampire named Rock Fangsworthy?

Theirs was a love that nature never intended. Bigger than Texas. Hotter than Hades. Weirder than…a lot of other things you might have read about up until now.

Self-made zillionaire Rock Fangsworthy is your typical Texas cowboy…well, sort of. Typical in that the only thing this lethally sexy lady-charmer with the hair trigger temper loves more than his horse is his ranch, The Double Fang. Or maybe his boots. Less typical in the fact he’s also a four hundred year old vampire with a shocking secret—he can’t stand the sight of blood.

Buffi Van Pelt is just your average girl-next-door winery owner…or is she? The spunky single mom to twin boys also happens to be a winsome werewolf with secrets and troubles of her own. The winery that the gutsy good-girl recently inherited from her grandmother is on the verge of ruin. If Buffi can’t find a use for the mysteriously tainted wine before time and her pantry’s limited supply of red meat runs out, she and her pups will be left homeless, destitute and very, very hungry. Worse yet, her baby-daddy is the same hunky, bad-boy vampire rancher who’s out to steal The Best Little Winery in Bloodsuck from under her paws.

Once upon a time their passion flamed hotter’n a summer’s night in Dallas with three Cheerleaders and a side of habanero sauce. Tonight, love’s lightning might just strike them twice…but only if the wine don’t kill them first.
