She wanted experience. He has 150 years' worth!

Guys don't tend to find gals with guns too sexy. So after years of awkward fumblings, deputy Shelly Lancaster is lookin' for a man . Not for love—good Lord, no. She just wants some hot, heavy and unforgettable sex with a man who knows exactly what he's doing!

As it turns out, Shelly's just found the perfect guy. Cowboy Colton Braddock is tasty as hell—and one of the perks of being a vampire is that he has years of hot, lusty loving under his belt. Unfortunately, this cowboy also has a wicked thirst for vengeance. But will it prove stronger than his hunger for her?

This romance has the perfect bite!

I'll admit right away that I'm a sucker for Kimberly Raye's books. Yes. I love her vampires and when I got the chance to nab this book, I jumped. This book is part of a series and yes, I've read the others, but I didn't have to in order to know what was going on. The writing was tight and flowed well, drawing me right into the story. And yeah, the sexy cowboy vampire didn't hurt one bit.

This book grabbed me from the start. A want-ad with sexy connotations and one glaring mistake. Shelly's name printed right on it. Oh and her email, too. Yeah, what a way to begin a novel. I loved it. She wanted to let go and experience a man with experience. Interesting premise, especially for hot romance--it's usually a story arc reserved for erotic romance. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a sweet romance by any means. It's hot and when Shelly and Colton really get going, they steamed up my glasses. I liked seeing the other characters from the previous books in the series. This also looks like it could be a wrap up of the series, to which I beg Ms. Raye to continue anyway. Did I mention I love her cowboy vamps? I sure do!

If you want a book that's got lots of heat, a sheriff willing to offer her body to one scintillating vampire and a guy with fangs (yes, he knows how to use them), then this is the book for you.
