Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Katie Macalister returns to the land of the Dark Ones in this sixth installment in her bestselling vampire series, which is, once again, funny, sexy, and more than a little zany. Macalister takes her lead character, the very pragmatic physicist Portia Harding, and shakes her to the core.

Portia is so rational she can explain quarks and particle reactions to anyone; she even thinks that love is merely a chemical reaction. So when Portia accompanies her friend Sarah on a paranormal tour of Britain, she is more than ready to scoff. However, investigating a fairy ring, Portia inadvertently summons up sparkly little lights and Hope, an agitated, paranoid woman. She is a "virtue," desperate to pass her gift on to Portia -- the gift to control weather. Accompanied by a small personal cloud, Portia then meets a handsome maniac trying to kidnap her: Theondre North, a nephilim, the son of an angel. When Portia destroys a demon's body by mistake and talks back to a demon lord, the demon retaliates, taking Theo's soul and turning him into a vampire. How Portia falls for Theo, fights the demon lord, passes seven trials of faith, and acquires the mother of all hickeys is the heart of this very funny book. Ginger Curwen

Just a question.. it says this is the sixth book in a series. I was wondering what the first five were, in order? I'm very interested in reading them all.

Facts, nothing but the facts, are how physicist Portia Harding sees the world. Logic can apply to anything and those items that fail to be validated in a consistent reliable manner simply mean some facts remain unknown.----------------- When Portia visits a so-called English magical site, she assumes superstition or con artists worked their trade to bilk the locals. However, she soon learns that there are some odd things in the universe that do not fit the Harding concept of reality when she skeptically chants, which summons the virtue Hope from the Court of Divine Blood. Seeing an opportunity to save herself from a deadly threat, Hope transfers her ability to control weather onto Portia before vanishing into seemingly thin air without further explanation. Portia, using logic, assumes it must be something she ate causing hallucinations especially with the cloud over her head and when her next visitor claims to be something called a nephilim, the son of an angel Theondre North. He tells her he will protect her while he needs her to change his fate. However, she stands accused of murdering a virtue and his fate leaves her neck exposed to a bite or two unless she becomes illogically in love.----------------- This is a wild zany romantic fantasy that will have the audience wondering what next will happen to the female Mr. Spock. The fast-paced story line never slows down as one incident follows another destroying Portia¿s logical thought process that she clings to in hopes of waking up except when Theo kisses her. Paranormal romance readers will enjoy this madcap tale of the logical physicist who finds love with THE LAST OF THE RED HOT VAMPIRES.-------------- Harriet Klausner
