This book is very funny and romantic. Minda Webber really puts you in the story and makes you part of it. It's almost like you can feel and see what the characters are doing and feeling. I love the way she wrights.

I loved this book! I read it over half a year ago and I can still remember parts of it. Very fun, and very descriptive.

I really enjoyed this book.. It had just the right amount of everything. Even though Clair was heading down the wrong path to all of her scientific discovers and ended up looking like the fool. She did so and found out she got more then what she bargined for.. I would recommend this book to anyone.. It was light hearted and funny..

This was a great book. It encompassed all of my old monster movie favorites and Claire was a wonderful heroine! She was always bumbling into sticky situations and the results were hilarious. The romance with Ian was sweet and juicy! This was a fabulous story and so funny I was sorry to see the end of the book.

Being a Frankenstein brings with it high expectations, and a reputation. Clair Frankenstein, niece to the great Victor Frankenstein, is determined to live up to both. To that end, she is on a quest to make the decade's most remarkable discovery before that sleuth, Durlock Homes or the double minded Dr. Jekyll can. Finding a vampire would do the trick. Since she is sure that Ian Huntsley is one, she beards him in his den, as it were, but the baron denies all blood drinking, etc. Though Clair is not certain he's not lying, after all, who would admit to something like that, she continues to search for another vampire, werewolf, or warlock among the ton. Ian is rather distressed by this. He finds Clair very appealing, and is sure she'll get herself killed if she's not careful. He takes it upon himself to, if not halt her intrepid hunt, at least fill it with red herrings. All the while, he battles his attraction to her, until only his love stands between her and a fate worse than death. **** Half the fun of this book is looking for the jokes. Clair has a plethora of fascinating relations, such as her aunt who is sure she's the Queen of England, Bess Tudor. The ton has never been more interesting than now, as guest 'stars', such as Edgar Allen Poe, V. Price, Ozzie and his bewitching cats, Dr. Whutson, and many more populate it. Hidden songs provide a fun soundtrack, if you can mentally hear them over your chuckles, that is. I do hope that Miss Webber will give Asher a sequel. He has potential to be even more intriguing than Ian and Clair. ****

Growing up in a household in which her Uncle is the renowned scientist Dr. Frankenstein and her best friend is Frederick the Monster, has made Claire curious about nature. She has a need to affirm that women can achieve much outside the home like that Wollstonecraft insisted possible; the proof to Claire is winning the 1828 coveted ¿Discovery of Science¿ award. She knows her rivals, all males, are almost as famous as her uncle because Dr. Jekyll has done some interesting research into split personalities and the judges are men too. Still she expects to win by proving vampires exist.................. Claire searches for the coffin of Baron Huntley, but instead of a grave she finds a warm blooded hunk. Since he is obviously not a bloodsucker she switches to her next species discovery, werewolves. Huntley is attracted to the Frankenstein niece while fearing for her safety as she bravely enters places where only a fool or a Van Helsing would go. As they fall in love he worries about keeping her safe from a real vampire who wants to dine on her blood and even more worrisome is his secret that he must tell her but fears her reaction.................. This wacky satirical paranormal romance will have readers howling in laughter at the antics of Claire and crew. The story line is action-packed and quite amusing, but also filled with literary references that augment the delightful plot. Sub-genre fans and anyone who appreciates an offbeat well written jocular tale will misquote the Raven wanting evermore novels like THE REMARKABLE DR. FRANKENSTEIN................. Harriet Klausner
