Overview

Best selling author Melanie Larson’s relationship with her friend, Chloe Carpenter, is bleak. Falsely accused of murder, Chloe’s future rests in the hands of her mate, Zane Marshall, and the Pacific Pack’s purebred werewolves. In an effort to help, Melanie joins forces with the pack and soon discovers the monsters she writes about in her paranormal novels really do go bump in the night.

As Chloe struggles with legal troubles, an unwanted blood bond with a master vampire, and a reunion with her mate, Melanie untangles the attention of multiple supernatural suitors determined to claim her as their own. Strangely attracted to a brazen vampire, she must decide if the blurred line between passion and pain is worth crossing.

Like most authors, Carol Van Atta is no stranger to the written word. She penned a short novel at age 12 (somewhat frightening illustrations included) and had a creative writing piece published in her high school newspaper. Devouring books from numerous genres, she developed a deep thirst for more reading materials, and could almost always be found with her nose in a book.
She has contributed to several, popular inspirational anthologies and devotional books, and lives in the rainy wetlands of Oregon with her terrifying teens and a small zoo of animals. She is taking an undetermined hiatus away from inspirational writing to delve into her darker side. It's been rumored this genre-jumping occurred after Carol discovered two suspicious red marks on her neck, and experienced an unquenchable urge to howl at the moon.

She Kissed a Vampire is the second book in the Werewolves of the West series by Carol Van Atta. I know this series is called Werewolves of the West, but there are so many other supernatural critters involved, it's craziness. Along with the Werewolves, we have Vampires, Fae, Witches, Angels, Fallen Angels... I think there was even mention of a Werelion? It was a supernatural smorgasbord, and had the action, suspense, and romance to match. The story is told from both Chloe and Melanie's point of view. I enjoyed each perspective equally. Alucin is amazing! I'll leave it at that. Melanie was a fun addition. She's pretty much a supernatural man magnet. We are introduced to many new characters, both good and bad, and it's hard to know who to trust. Some of them want something from Chloe and some want something from Melanie. There were twists and turns, and I liked the surprises. The romantic anticipation is intoxicating, and this book is full of it. She Kissed a Vampire by Carol Van Atta was kindly provided to me by the Bewitching Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.

Warning – This is the second book in The Werewolves of the West Series and I’ll do my best not to include spoilers. I felt the author really hit her stride right out of the gate in this second book. The action and suspense are palpable right from the first chapter and the romance is a tangled web, with many want to be suitors for Melanie and the newly mated bonds between Chloe and Zane. I just knew Jazmine and that zebra feasting vamp would get at Chloe. She’s behind bars, framed for multiple murders and Agent Green has nullified her abilities, cutting her off from all who would help her. War, jealousy, and love all rear their heads in this fun continuation of the series. When Chloe and Zane were mated she gained a lot of special talents and seemed to have an intuitive sense on how to tap into them. Carol did a great job with this, making Chloe’s easy assimilation believable. As with the first book, there is so much intrigue and secrets it becomes difficult to tell the good guys from the bad ones. Even some of the bad guys earned my affection. What can I say, they are supernatural and sexy. Chloe’s best friend Melanie tells her own side of things. She has a secret. She’s jealous of Chloe. Her best friend has attitude and glamour and she often feels like the ugly duckling compared to her. That all changes when she arrives in Plum Beach to help get Chloe out of jail. The paranormal books she writes earn her six figures a year, and it may be why she was able to accept the news when she finds out most of the people helping Chloe are werewolves, fae, and vamps. She’s not lacking in suitors either with all these alpha males sniffing at her door, and she feels sexy, lovin every minute of it. There’s plenty of action, sizzling sex appeal, and so many secrets to be kept and surprises to be revealed. We lost some characters but gained some new ones and this series just got even better. I was provided a copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.

She Kissed A Vampire By Carol Van Atta Chloe and Melanie have been friends since childhood. Now Melanie is standing outside a jail wondering who is framing her friend and why it is happening. What Melanie didn‘t know is that she is about to find out that all the paranormal things she has written about is more real than she ever imagined. Melanie is a paranormal writer and has just recently divorced. She is totally sold on the fact that all men are jerks but what if the cool one she just met isn’t just any guy but a vamp, and that good looking husband of her best friend Chloe, well what if he is really a were wolf. You need to read She Kissed a Vampire to find out how discovering the paranormal world is real changes Melanie’s life forever. I love the way Carol uses the two characters to tell the story of what is going on and how it is from the perspective of each character. A definite five star story to keep you entertained and enthralled. Read it and find out how life changes for Melanie when she Kissed a Vampire. Bella Doerres 1/11/14

Wow! Like this book better than the first Werewolves of the West: I Kissed a Dog. Alcuin and Melanie's relationship was scorching hot. Zane and Chloe were great together. Finally ironing out some stuff that needed fixing. Chloe has grown up a lot since the first book. Still moody, but much more mature. This author has a way with words. Love the creativity and world she's built. Different from what I've read in other series. If you're a fan of Sookie Stackhouse, I think you'll love Chloe and Melanie, and their many male pursuers. Can't wait to learn more about Lux.

This book was ok, i felt like the story centered more around melanie than chloe, and that chloe and zanes relationship wasnt as exciting.
