Addison Godwin is a Non-Glam-one of the one in ten thousand humans who is immune to vampire glamour and mind tricks. Her gift enables her to work as an Auditor, enforcing the law that vampires and humans keep their distance from each other except in a purely non-physical way. The law is necessary because when a vampire tries to have sex with a human their blood-lust combines with their sexual appetite and the result looks like road kill. Alec Corbin is a Four Star Master Vampire with piercing blue eyes and intentions to get Addison into his bed. He promises he can be gentle but Addison has seen way too many vamp/human crime scenes to go for that. She has no interest in the six foot four hunk of sexy vampire man candy, even if he is supernaturally hot. But just because she Audits (and sometimes executes) vampires for a living, doesn't mean she hates them all. Her best friend, Taylor, was turned against her will. Now, living as a slave to one of the crueler Master vamps in town, she leads a miserable existence and Addison is helpless to save her within the confines of the law. Things come to a head when the Vampire Inquisitor comes to town and Taylor is given to him as a sex slave. When Addison sees her best friend tortured, beaten, and burned with silver she knows she has to do something-even if it means teaming up with Corbin and paying the Crimson Debt. Contains mature themes.… (més)

This story starts out sounding a lot like the beginning of Laurell K Hamilton’s Anita Blake series. We’ve got a vampire master in a glam-sex nightclub (vs a strip club) who is seriously interested in the female vampire audtior/executioner / vampire hunter that comes around, and while she finds him really hot, wants nothing to do with him because with little exception, the only good vampire is a dead one. And after turning him down, goes back to ask for a favor. In this case it’s to save a friend. Okay, that’s where the similarities end.

Unfortunately, a couple of things prevent me from giving this 4 stars. The first is that Addison, the story’s heroine, isn’t an especially likeable character. She takes her stubbornness way too far and refuses to hold up her end of the bargain she made with Corbin in order to save her friend. Why Corbin is in love with her, especially after her actions, is beyond me. It’s difficult to truly enjoy the story when you don’t like one of the main characters.

The other is the amount of sex. Now I have to admit it got me feeling squirmy for awhile, but it started to take up too much of the story.

I did like the world-building, the concepts and the situations. And who wouldn’t like a guy like Corbin? ( )

Evangeline Anderson is a terrific world builder. I had no trouble trying to "see" it as I read. I have been a fan of Ms. Andersons for years. When she offered a free copy of this book to the first twenty people to respond on Facebook, I jumped on it. I can't wait to see what she has in store for the rest of the series. I am especially eager to see a certain werewolf ;0p

Our hero, Alec Corbin, is a four star (400 years old) master vampire. He owns the premiere sex-glam (blood for mind sex) club Under the Fang in Tampa, Florida. He is sex on a stick handsome with eyes that are to die for. The occasional Gaelic burr would make me swoon. Alas, he wouldn't be interested in me because he has a thing for Addison Godwin, the vampire auditor. Addison, like all auditors, is glam proof. She keeps those naughty vampires in line, or executes them. seeing the worst of them every day, she doesn't really like vampires. Except Taylor, her best friend who was turned against her will by mega skank Celeste. When Celeste gives Taylor to a sadistic visiting dignitary, Addison is forced to ask Corbin for help. Nothing comes for free, especially not when it comes to vampires. Addison is thrust into a world she only thought she knew. Will she learn to see Corbin as a man and not a monster? Can they save Taylor and themselves? Or will someone have to pay the ultimate price, the crimson debt? ( )
