Summary from the publisher:

It had to be nuns.

Some vampires had a thing for B+. Some preferred redheads. Others preferred blondes.

For Jasper, it had to be nuns--and he's been regretting that since the day he bit Amabel de Woodville, almost two centuries ago.

She'd done something to him. Something that restored his conscience, pointed his moral compass straight north, and ended his career of seducing virgin nuns and killing as he pleased. But even worse--she'd gotten under his skin, and he hasn't forgotten the green-eyed witch who'd been immune to his charms.

When Amabel ends up in his office, still as young as the day they'd met and seeking a charity sponsor, Jasper has the chance he's ached for: to show her the pleasure that's haunted her dreams for decades. He's taken the virginity of a hundred nuns...but a vampire nun? That's new.

And Jasper has always enjoyed a challenge.

My Musings:

First off, this is a very quick read which is a shame because I really liked Amabel and Jasper. I would have loved to have more time with them.

Even as a human, Jasper was a lady’s man. After becoming a vampire with the power of enthrallment, no woman was safe. That was until he met a young nun named Amabel. You see, Jasper has a thing for nuns.

“Some men had alcohol. Some had narcotics. Women had chocolate, and occasionally shoes. Jasper’s weakness was nuns.”

He cannot resist them and normally the reverse is true as well . . . except for Amabel. For some reason, she can resist him and curses him before he bites her. And what a curse it is! Amabel’s blood gives Jasper a conscience which is a terrible inconvenience. Jasper liked being a vampire. He liked “doing” whatever or whomever he wanted without considering others. Amabel has taken all the fun out of being a vampire.

For 160 years, Jasper has been a vampire with a conscience. He no longer seduces women with his powers. He only kills the bad guys. It’s a terrible life. But what kind of life is Amabel leading all this time? She is still a chaste, moral young woman who happens to be a 160 year old vampire. She never bites anyone (pig blood . . . ewww) and has remained a virgin. So, of course, their paths have to cross.

As I said, I really enjoyed this book. The characters are likable and the dialogue is laugh-out-loud funny at times. The sex scenes are hot, but more intimate than explicit. My only disappointment is the short length. I really, really want to see more of Jasper.


Overall:  4 stars

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
