    I Want It

    This was the final book that I read for 2009. I'm a big Kathy Love fan and find most of her stories wonderful to read. This book was no exception. Maggie is a heart broken classical music authenticator from Washington DC who takes a holiday with her two girlfriends to New Orleans. She is also broken in many other ways, her fiance left her at the alter just prier to this trip. While in New Orleans they do the standard tourist stuff by seeing graves, tea leaf readers and listening to music. Maggie stumbles into a bar where a hotty is playing a piece of music. She is instantly drawn to the music. Ren is instantly drawn to her. Turns out he is a vampire with a curse and love isn't in the leafs for either of them - well at least that is what they think. A lovely romantic story.

    I LOVE KATHY LOVE'S BOOKS BUT THIS ONE WAS NOT A FAVORITE.

    The story was good but no real drama or bad guys in this one, just a lampire who thinks he's cursed, and any woman who falls in love with him will die. I really liked Maggie she was shy and smart and blushed way too much, but likeable. Ren was great and although he had believed his wretched mother cursed his love life he still wanted Maggie, and agreed to have a fling with her in the big easy while she was on vacation. The sex scenes were ok not real "drag the ice out to cool me down" kind of sex, but enough to keep you interested. I really love Kathy Love's books the "Fang Series" those were incredibly fun and funny with all ranges of emotion, but this one fell a little flat for me. I will of course read it many times, and enjoy it, but hopefully in the future Kathy will come up with more of her witty fun and devilishly handsome characters like maxim in "Demon Can't Help It" Overall good read, but a little flat in the romance department and in the thrilling department.

    Get Yourself an Impaler

    Any Way You Want It by Kathy Love takes us back to the world of those sexy vampires. ________ Maggie Gallagher is on a much needed vacation in New Orleans with two friends when some haunting music draws her to a local club. Maggie is a music authenticator back in Washington DC and music is her life. This music she hears reminds her of a piece she just received to study. As Maggie enters the bar it¿s not just the music she is enthralled with it¿s the lead singer Ren Anthony. The piece he is playing touches her very soul. Then when she hears him sing she is drawn just as equally to the man himself. _____ Renauldo D¿Antoni or Ren as he is now called has always had music in his heart. Before he was turned many centuries ago he was a gifted classical composer. Now he plays cover tunes in a local band called the Impalers. One night he sees a vision of a woman come into the seedy bar and he can¿t keep his mind off of her. Ren has stayed away from long term relationships because he has been hurt so many times. But there is something about Maggie that he can¿t stay away from. ______ Maggie and Ren agree to a brief affair since she won¿t be in town very long. But neither was ready for the attraction to be more then just a fling, or so they both thought. Ren then has to worry about Maggie finding out what he really is and will she still want to be with him. But when he hears her whispered words of love this really send him reeling. _______ Any Way You Want It is a soulful book of love and romance. Maggie and Ren¿s attraction is deep and undeniable. You find yourself routing for these two from the get go. Their romance is funny, sexy and passionate. You will really enjoy your time in Kathy Love¿s vampire world. I hope Maggie¿s two friends get their own stories soon.

    Any Way You Want It

    Washington DC based Maggie Gallagher is an expert on the lives of dead composers her love life is as dead as those musicians she studies. Her current work is to authenticate a recently found sonata allegedly written by early nineteenth century composer Renauldo D¿Antoni. Meanwhile she takes a break from her beloved yet tedious work as she and some friends go to New Orleans on a vacation. While visiting the grave of a voodoo priestess, Maggie quietly wishes for a heated encounter.---------------- Later that same night, Maggie hears the last thing she expected coming from some French Quarter dive. Someone is playing the sonata she is investigating, which makes no sense as her preliminary information is that this is a lost treasure just recently rediscovered. Normally quite reticent, Maggie meets keyboardist Ren Anthony, who is the leader of the `80s style band the Impalers. She interrogates him about the sonata and he remains elusive in his responses. However, neither can ignore the attraction, but he knows that relationships don¿t survive as the women he has loved since being born as Renauldo D¿Antoni in 1785 die immortals like him live forever in loneliness.---------------- ANYWAY YOU WANT IT is an entertaining lighthearted paranormal romantic romp. The story line centers on whether Maggie can persuade Ren that he only has fangs for her. Vampire romance fans will enjoy the romance between the immortal composer and the human musicologist.------------------ Harriet Klausner
