    Reunited After 200 Years. A Blessing or a Curse? 5-Stars! Rob

    Reunited After 200 Years. A Blessing or a Curse? 5-Stars!

    Robin Covington’s paranormal debut was a hit! I was a fan of her books – the Boys are Back in Town (A Night of Southern Comfort, His Southern Temptation, Sweet Southern Betrayal) series and Playing the Part. Even though I was on a self-imposed ‘vampire strike,’ avoiding all vampire books after many years of devouring them, I decided to read Sex and the Single Vamp with an open mind. I received a complimentary copy of Sex and the Single Vamp, and was not disappointed!

    I already knew Ms. Covington had purposefully taken a new direction with this book. Both main characters, Felicity ‘Cici’ Trent and Thomas Samuel Deacon (aka. Deacon) were vampires at the beginning of the story. Over two hundred years after their first meeting, Cici sought out Deacon’s help because someone was sabotaging her business. Deacon agreed to help her, if she spent a night in his bed.

    Suspense-filled reunion. Check.
    Two-hundred-year-old unrequited feelings. Check.
    Layers of lies, secrets and mistrust. Check.
    Smoking hot and poignant sex. Check.

    Deacon may be Ms. Covington’s most tortured hero. This was no easy feat, as several of her alpha men are former/active duty military with layers of sublimated pain. Deacon balanced a dichotomy between the sexy, honorable soldier and a ruthless vampire killer, which made him an alpha hero we rooted for more and more as the story developed. At the same time, Cici faced her fears, acted on her desires and embraced her true power. Midway through the action, Ms. Covington provided an interesting plot twist that forced this well-matched pair to revisit two-hundred years of pain and unanswered questions.

    Ms. Covington’s talent for subtly tackling themes of discrimination and loss were integral parts of the story. Her secondary characters, Mya and Andy are the voices of reason; adding comic relief and the swift kick in the pants that Cici and Deacon needed to open up their hearts to each other. The suspense built, as we learned more about her diverse world of Others and their human counterparts. I hope she writes Andy, Mya and Ramirez’s stories in the future.

    I highly recommend Sex and the Single Vamp, as a sensually, pleasant departure from the typical vampire tale.

    4.0 ¿ 4.5 Stars 200-plus years is a long time to deny your feel

    4.0 – 4.5 Stars

    200-plus years is a long time to deny your feelings for someone, but when Cici asks for Deacon's help, he can't refuse her.  See, it all began with a promise Deacon had made to her father. Now, he thinks it's time they stop dancing around each other and finally give into certain needs. Is Cici about to make a deal with the devil?

    Wowza! This is one dark-vampy-delicious read! Cici is such a great character. She's a vampire who is a hopeless romantic. She believes in the forever kind of love so much that she has made it her job to help others find their soul mates. Dark and broody Deacon is her total opposite, and thinks he can easily move on after any short fling with Cici.

    Robin Covington swept me away with the world-building and rich characters in this story! I got drawn into Cici and Deacon's history, how they lived their immortal lives and co-exist with humans. I thought their friends Mya and Andy were so fascinating.  This story is about 143 pages, and there's no doubt I wanted more of everything; however, I did find the plot highly enjoyable and refreshing with Cici becoming mortal as it says in the synopsis. There's also a huge twist! Do I recommend Sex and the Single Vamp? If you're a paranormal romance lover and seek a steamy, quickie read, YES! *A complimentary copy was gifted to me for an honest review

    Hot, hot, hot! I got my hands on an advance copy of this and devoured it! All of Robin Covington's classic sexy style wrapped up in a paranormal theme. Deacon and Cici sizzled up my e-reader from start to finish. This is a fast-paced story with just enough paranormal world-building to make it exciting but not overly complex. Sexy, sassy, smokin' hot-- Covington's got it all!

    No matter how old you get communication is key.  Because of a misunderstanding 230 years ago Cici’s family was murdered and she was turned into a vampire.  Now that the “Others” have been outed to the human world old enemies are coming after her.  Deacon has loved Cici for as long as he has known her but it wasn’t meant to be.  Or is it?  Cici needs his help and he plans to find out once and for all. This book is dark yet sweet and sexy.  The secondary characters add to the story in an interesting way.  Definitely a good read.

    Yes! A lovers-with-a-history story, and since they're vampires,

    Yes! A lovers-with-a-history story, and since they're vampires, it's a loooong history...one that begins in colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, one of my favorite places/time periods ever. Bonus!




    Robin's come up with an interesting world here--vamps, weres, fey, and other supernaturals (known as "Others") have been outed, and some parts of the rest of the world have taken the news better than others. One group in particular, the Fellowship of Adam's Race, has been stalking Others and those that aid and protect them for centuries. Certain other groups, on the other hand--law enforcement, the military, and intelligence organizations in particular--have been utilizing the Others' supernatural abilities for just as long. 




    Cici and Deacon's shared history contains a long list of somewhat reluctant collaborations as they work together to save mankind through the most trying times that history has to offer. We only get a hint of much of it here, but one gets the feeling that those earlier exploits would make quite the story.




    Now, though, Cici needs Deacon's help, as reluctant as she is to ask for it. He's determined to honor his promise to her long-dead father and keep her safe, even though he really doesn't approve of her business, a matchmaking service for humans and Others. In exchange for his services, he demands a rather unusual payment, one she isn't exactly willing to pay. Or is she? Her traitorous libido appears to have quite the opposite opinion in the matter.




    What follows are some pretty steamy scenes, paired with some edge-of-your-seat suspense, written as only Robin Covington can. Toward the end she even ratcheted up the drama, darn her--she nearly had me in tears! I believe I was literally incapable of putting my ereader down at one point; thank goodness it was the weekend and I didn't have to. Just when all seemed almost lost, she pulled out the ace she'd been hiding up her sleeve and...well, you'll just have to read it yourself.




    Trust me. Totally worth it.




    Fingers crossed that Ms. Covington's going to be writing more from this universe, either with these characters or new ones. Either way it'll be a win-win. 




    4 stars/ A- rating.

    Wow!  This book has such a sensual and sexual feel to it from cover to cover. I do not normally read a lot of vampire books, but since I have read and loved Robin Covington's other books, I knew this would be good too.




    I love a good strong female character with sass and feistiness and CiCi has it in spades. I love how she stood up to Deacon and was not a pushover.  She is an amazing character.  Then there is Deacon, and man is he delish.  The whole alpha protector, my woman, I keep my promises, overly sexual vampire.  I absolutely loved him.  Their chemistry was on fire and sizzling.  The whole scene in the club where they connected - yum!




    The story of trying to see who was after CiCi was intriguing.  The way the person was discovered and why was good.  But for me it was the eye awakening journey for Deacon that made this book special for me.  And the ending was so super sweet.
    I was given this story in exchange for an honest review.

    This was the first book that I have read by Robin Covington, and this book is hot. If you like a paranormal romance that involves a mystery and a lot of heated intimacy you will definitely want to read this book, but be prepared because you will not want to put it down.

    Cici Trent is a vampire who believes that love can happen between the supernatural and humans. It is her beliefs that had her open a dating agency where these couples could meet. Things have been very good, but now, someone wants her business to suffer. She knows that the only person who can help her is Deacon. But can she put the hurt he caused her aside in order to ask him for help?

    Deacon has loved one woman for more than three hundred years even though he had to accept that she chose another man. Even though he has tried to accept her choice he’s always been patient when it comes to Cici. He hides the loss of her by acting like he does not believe in love and that supernatural and human people should be together. When she comes to him asking for his help he decides this is the perfect time to go after what he wants. He will help her, but she has to sleep with him in return. Will she agree to his demands? 

    Deacon has a few secrets that he’s been hiding from her knowing that the results will not be good when she learns about them. He knows the time for the truth has arrived as the danger escalates and Cici suddenly loses her immortality. There is only one way to make her immortal again, but she may not allow Deacon to change her back. Is it possible that love can help them get past the hurt to enjoy forever? Or will he lose Cici after he finally got her? 

    I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I do not read many paranormal.  On occasion I see one that interests me enough to read it.  And very rarely is it a vampire story.  It's just never been my thing.  That being said, I have read all of Ms. Covington's Contemporary romance books and had to give this one a try...




    Holy moly, I am glad I did!  I really enjoyed this book.  It has action, suspense, and sizzle.  I was sucked into this story. (Pun intended)  Great characters, interesting plot, and a few surprises along the way.  Secondary characters worthy of their own stories.  Possible series, Ms. Covington?  Please?




    Favorite line:  I cannot live in a world where you do not exist. (Swoon!)
