Love hits hard between the powerful vampire, Achilles, and the woman who could potentially destroy all vampires, Dr. Rebecca Chamberlin. Meyers sets up a wonderful world where vampires are created by a "virus" that Dr. Chamberlin is steadfast determined to find the "cure" for because her mother and best friend were "infected" and changed into vampires. Dr Chamberlin's quest to find a cure becomes more desperate when she finds herself the unwilling victim of the virus. Achilles senses in Dr. Chamberlin a love long lost and he desperately fights it, especially when he finds himself the unwilling mentor to this fledgling vampire. This book was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Achilles is the jaded and gruff vampire in charge of his clan's security force and Dr. Chamberlin is intelligent but misguided. They both fight their strong attraction which in the end you know is a losing battle. The only problem I had with the story was the length of time Dr. Chamberlin pursues a cure despite the time she is with the vampires, and despite seeing how they are not the monsters the humans believe them to be as well as the fact that her friend is very happy with being a vampire and the wife of a vampire. That being said, Meyers does a good job developing her characters and moving the story quickly without unanswered questions. All the characters in the story are likeable-of course the evil characters are evil-and the reader is swept along to a satisfying end.

I loved this story. The writing was great and the story just flowed. If you read and liked The Truth About Vampires then you want to pick this one up right away. If you havent read it, then you still need to pick this up. This is a well-written vampire story that takes place in Seattle. This also shows one of my favorite things about vampire stories. The myth has so much flexibility to it and allows new unique stories to be developed. The book is not long, but the characters are still well developed as is the setting. You really learn a lot about Beck and Achilles and you enjoy watching their relationship develop and unfold. The backdrop of their story is about vampires just being reintroduced to the mortal public after being in hiding for a number of years. It really helps set the stage for future stories and gives the characters in this one plenty of conflict to resolve. If you like vampire stories, this is one series you should not miss. If you are a paranormal fan, its also a series you should not miss. Pick up copies soon you wont be sorry. Im anxiously waiting the next story in the Sons of Midnight, cant wait to find out who it will be about and what happens next in their world.

Manipulators being manipulated, biohazards and the fight against time, a hero and heroine who face death for loving each other and a whole lot more is waiting for readers in this latest thrilling and fast paced book by Ms. Meyers. I remember reading the Truth about Vampires and was amazed at the unique way in which the vampires were depicted in that book. I figured that would be the end of the surprise twists but I was delighted by the bombshell I got at the end of this book. It's way cool and it ends up being, if not the answer then at least one of them, about an alluded to prophesy during the telling of this current tale. I'm not going to say who says it or when, that is for readers to find out. Even if they notice that part during reading, there is no way they're going to guess what happens during the epilogue. I certainly never imagined the outcome and I can only guess at the absolute chaos that could erupt from such a revelation. What fun! I'm getting ahead of myself. The heroine, Beck (short for Rebecca), is a single-minded scientist with a brain that won't quit. Despite being an introverted science geek, she's actually warm-hearted and sweet and has a core of inner steel, something she developed during events over the course of her growing up. She could have become a bitter and twisted woman but instead she works for the good of mankind - or so she thinks. I never saw the plot conflict coming and it was a shocker. I mean, the author hinted at something and I figured I knew what she meant until I read one of the dramatic and intense scenes that revealed the truth. The author's choice of words was well done because I got grossed out. Beck and the hero, on the other hand, got a lot more than that. Achilles is the hero with a tough job. I'm not talking about his work for the clan, although that carries with it a huge responsibility. No, what I'm referring to is his job to mentor a woman he already had the hots for. Through a simple and unfortunate circumstance he was forced to take on a role that made her forbidden to him. Talk about conflict and personal angst. Even more exciting was the sensual tension, pulled so taut a reader could cut it with a knife. What makes Achilles rate higher on the "yum" factor is his being a Spartan warrior of old. Those guys knew what harsh living was like and yet for all his manly, stoic and determined intentions, a man is still a man when faced with a woman who makes his pheromones sizzle and pop. I enjoyed watching him succumb to his heart. Even more amazing is the reason why he can't resist her. What a fascinating surprise. The villains are a bit twisted in this tale. By that I don't mean they are demented and psycho, instead they are not quite what I expected. One of the bad guys in The Truth about Vampires shows up in this book too. And no, a reader really doesn't need to read the first book to follow and understand The Vampire Who Loved Me. Kristin, Beck's best friend, fills a reader in just fine with what they'll need to know. But since I did read the first book, I still found what happens to the guy as a bit harsh. I think he deserved it and once a reader gets to that part, it's really profound and full of ironic justice - but still icky. Read the full review at The Long and Short of It Romance Reviews

If I had to sum up my thoughts on this book in one word I would use YUMMY. Why? Because the descriptions, the smells, and the settings were delicately and painstakingly written in a way that I easily felt surrounded by everything Theresa wrote. I can only begin to fathom the creativity it took to write such a great romance. This isn't your typical vampire romance. It delves deep into the mindset of vampire racism and their right to belong on earth. I loved every word, every character (good or bad), and the realistic yet surprising emotions that we've come to expect from vampire romances. Most importantly, I loved how smooth the plot flowed from beginning to end. There wasn't one dull moment or place where I felt I had to skim over. I was enthralled by everything. Because of the position of the heroine, Dr. Chamberlin, I believe this book could also be classified as a medical romance because she's constantly testing theories & medicine. Thank you Theresa for allowing me to escape into an amazing story - one that I'll read several times.

After vampires converted her loved ones, Dr. Rebecca Chamberlin hated the vile creatures. She works diligently on a vaccination in order to cure what she believes is a disease. When she is changed into the beasts she detests, she increases her efforts to find a cure. Vampire clan security commander Achilles Stefanos watches closely the scientist in order to keep his species safe. Her financial supporters inject Beck with her serum only to find it fails. Achilles knows he must complete her transformation or Beck will die. As the pair begins to fall in love, someone modifies her vaccine in order to change vampires to their actual chronological age; which means vampire like Achilles an Ancient Greek will turn to dust. The pairing of an ancient Greek warrior vampire and a modern day scientist make for a great tale as neither wants to love the other, but each learns you can't always get what you want. The story line is fast-paced from the moment that Achilles fears the newest fledgling is archenemy Dr. Chamberlain and never slows down as the heroine seeks the cure for vampirism. Harriet Klausner

The Vampire Who Love Me is a Harlequin Nocturne book. Goodreads says that it is book #113 so I didn't know if all of these were just stand-alone books. I'd say that this book could be read as a stand-alone, but apparently there is one other book that had some of the same characters in it that I would liked to have read first. Since I felt like I was missing out on things a little, it made it harder for me to connect with this book. I also had a hard time connecting with the heroine - not that she wasn't well written or anything. She is a scientist and has to know why and how EVERYTHING works - I would have liked to see her just relax and live life. Rebecca (also known as Beck) is a great heroine though. She's not one of those damsel in distress types. She's stubborn, independent, and capable of taking care of things herself. She never really "needed" a man in her life, yet she yearned to be important to somebody. Achilles is everything you could want in a hero - strong, protective, intelligent, sexy, a warrior... He also has a brooding side - he has gone through a lot of heartache. I would say that Achilles is my favorite character from this book. The secondary characters in this book were the lead characters in a previous book - The Truth About Vampires (#107). They seemed like likable characters and I found myself wanting to know more about them. The plot in this story was really good - definitely unique and intriguing. The writing was good as well, I didn't notice any errors. I wasn't all that excited about the ending though - I thought it was a little too convenient. There was some passion involved, as well as romance and suspense. I do recommend this book to others - especially vampire fans. If there is a 3rd book, I would definitely be interested in reading it.
