Destiny May Not Be Set In Stone, But At Least He's As Hard As A Rock Erika Todd moved to New Orleans because she needed a change--and, well, yes, because that's what the fortune teller said she would do. Not that she'd admit that to many people. But so many of the psychic's predictions--about her work, even finding that stray black cat--have already come true. Now all the lonely sculptor needs is to meet and fall in love with the prophesized dark-eyed prince. . . Reclusive musician Vittorio Ridgewood has a new neighbor he's been trying to avoid. Sure, she's gorgeous, but she's coming on strong, and the last thing the 200-year-old vampire needs is to get involved with another mortal. Especially since several of his former human paramours have lately been turning up dead. . . Sensing the relentless beauty needs someone to watch over her, Vittorio agrees to sit for a sculpture, and their attraction to one another quickly ignites. But is passion even this hot worth dying for?… (més)

On one level, this is fabulous; but the the afterglow from the erotic sections wears off and you notice the gaping plot holes...

Erika Todd's a sculptor with a taste for the psychic and has moved to New Orleans to move her creative career forward - and thus far it seems to be working. At the books' start, she's preparing for an exhibition in a few weeks, but is having trouble with a lopsided fallen angel. She's renting an apartment from her friend, Maggie, and her husband, Ren. And they're off on a romantic weekend away, so Erika's left on her own. At which point she meets Ren's brother Vittorio, when she thinks he's a burglar & ends up throwing her phone at him. Only he isn't a burglar he's a sort of vampire. Good oh.

There is an attraction between the two, only he tries desperately not to give into it, as he's on the trail of a murderer who seems to have been killing off ladies of his acquaintance. And here it all gets a little bit strange. There's a mad mother, a curse, a pair of daemons from the 5th (or deeper) levels of hell and in between stupendous sex with Vittorio, it nearly ends rather badly for Erika.

It's a swift enough read and, if you happen to go for arrogant, blond hairs, dark eyed hunks (I don't) who's a whizz at oral sex (I could be persuaded) then it's perfectly satisfying. But then there are those plot holes. The background, why & how Vittorio is a Vampire, why his mother is completely round the twist, why Ren's the unfavoured brother, what happened in the past to make Vittorio think he owes the world an apology, all this is never explained - it's brushed under the carpet, hoping you'll be too heated to notice. OK, but would be a better book with a bit more story. ( )

"I Want You To Want Me" is book two in Kathy Love's vampire series following her earlier 'Fangs' series. Love's books have a healthy dose of humor combined with a bit of mystery and action to make for a very enjoyable read.

Erika is an artist who recently moved to New Orleans...because her fortune teller told her to. Yes, she fully believes in all that 'psychic mumbo jumbo' and she can't wait to meet the Prince her psychic has predicted for her.

Vittorio is trying to avoid his new neighbor. Not because she's not pretty...she's gorgeous; not because he's not attracted to her...he can't remember ever wanting a woman this badly; but because every woman he's cared about or helped keeps ending up dead...and he's very afraid it's his psycho lampir mother who's to blame. But whoever is stalking his women already knows about Erika, so surely the only logical thing for Vittorio to do is keep Erika close...really, really close!

Sexy, fun, and humorous...with demons, and werewolves, and vampires, oh my! ( )
