Overview

Veronica Davis is a woman with a desperate need.

If she doesn't bring a date to her big sister's wedding, the L for loser that's imprinted on her forehead will become permanent, as far as her family is concerned. And heck, she's started to believe it, herself.

Why else would a girl end up at a Los Angeles escort agency with the strange acronym V.A.M.P. Inc? Where you pick your date from a row of coffins in the agency's basement. Guys who can't meet you at lunch time, due to the fact that they sleep until sundown.

You know . . . . vampires.

And when she meets the unearthly handsome Christian Dale, the agency's odd acronym begins to take on a whole new meaning. Tackling her sister's wedding actually starts to seem like a piece of cake . . .

Author note: Veronica and the Vampire is a lighthearted, very "girly" story about the possible perils of paranormal dating, and the women who just might beat the odds. I've dedicated this story to everyone who remembers the term "dating," whether fondly or not, and have packed this book with lots of good Karma for those who do.

Editorial Reviews

Morgan Faulkner
"If you ever have days when you're in need of a smile, for whatever reason, pick up one of Linda Thomas-Sundstrom's rare, lighthearted books. 'Veronica and the Vampire' is full of fun, from the agency Veronica hits to hire herself a date, to the antics at the wedding she takes him to. Fluffy stuff, light as cotton-candy, this book sucked me right in."

    a fun lighthearted paranormal romance

    In Los Angeles, her cubicle mate at the legal firm Annie sends law clerk Veronica Davis to V.A.M.P. Inc. so the latter can choose an escort to take her to her nasty sister Charlene's wedding. The choices of men reside inside coffins, but it is Christopher who she wants. Veronica does not believe Christopher is a vampire, but marvels with how he deals with her shocked sibling and her stunned mother. He is the reason she is not wearing the scarlet letter of L for loser.

    However, Christopher wants more from Veronica than a "dead-end date" at her sibling's wedding. As she begins to accept what he is, the vampire must persuade the law clerk they are destined soumatesl.

    Veronica and the Vampire is a fun lighthearted paranormal romance starring a woman who find a male that like the Electric Company's Letterman changes the meaning of L from loser to lover. Although the novella format leaves the plot thin, sub-genre fans will enjoy Linda Thomas-Sundstrom's amusing frolic similar in tone to the author's engaging Barbie and the Beast.

    What a quick lunch read? Go for it! Otherwise, spend your dollar wisely.

    This was a nice story. Even with the grammer errors, a few get on with it moments, and the shortness. This story has lots of sexual tension rather than sex which does not bother me but the amont of time it takes for the story to kick off did. I might be wrong but in chapter eight she is still at the agency! I think her writing has promise but she spends a lot of time rehashing things that have already been stated, thus wasting ( in my mind) precious pages of this 80-something page document. Yes, I believe it is a stretch to call it a book. Short story maybe.....any how I would have to stand at the three star rating because the story was not fleshed out more.

    Great read!!!

    Veronica is trying to fight her insecurities as any other woman does and also trying to find a solution for her problems. Christopher is WOW, through the story I don't see him as a vampire but as an amazing guy who would do anything for his mate. Story is light, fluffy, funny and I enjoyed it immensely. I found picking a date from a row of coffins only seeing a picture of the guys an amazing idea. Didn't expect that one and it's refreshing. My only complaint is that I wanted more, wanted to see Christopher's POV which is a compliment to writer. I would like to see who the other guys are and how they meet their mates. Definitely worth more than 99c. Highly recommended!

    A Fun Summer Read

    With the heat soaring to 100 degrees, this is the perfect book to slip into something girly & fluffy. I grinned the whole way through. Especially enjoyed the graveyard scene with the ever insecure Veronica and the manly man - or is it virile vampire - Christopher. It hits a summertime home run!

    Love this little ditty

    The great cover on this book caught my attention. A dollar? I said to myself, for a fun novella? I am so glad I got this, and am passing this information along to others who appreciate reading pages of pure fun for a change. Warning: There is nothing serious here. The pretty pink cover art says it all. Besides wanting that sucker in Veronica's hand, I'd also like to take home the sexy vampire named Christopher that she rents. Her date with her vampire is a crazy and slightly neurotic ride and I found myself going along with every zany minute of it. Need some fun time? Time off from the dark vampire stories we all love? Get this book. Suzanne Smith Reviews
