The secret is out . . . Vampires do exist!When a video reveals to the world that vampires live among us, it's up to
All Gregori Holstein wanted to do was get his commercial filmed and in the can before someone wanted to stake the star. However, this wasn’t an ordinary night because the human public had been exposed to the truth about vampires being alive among them by a torqued off girlfriend. A video has gone viral on the internet and all vampires are scared of what the backlash might be. Gregori has an idea to calm his workers and when he calls his boss’ office to put it into action, he is requested to come to the last part of a high level meeting. What Gregori learns there will change his life forever and we all know that forever is a really long time for a vampire.
Abigail Tucker is one of the U.S. President’s daughters. However, she is the forgotten one, a scientist trying to find a cure to save her mother’s life. In her search for a cure, Abigail believes that some rare plants found only in China might hold the key. But there is no way the President will allow one of his daughters to travel to China without serious protection and secrecy. Still hunting for a way to convince her father to allow the trip, Abigail hears that there are vampires meeting with her father and his team in the White House. Yeah right. Dragged by her sister to check out the “vampires,” Abigail sees the sexiest man she has ever seen. What amazes Abigail more is that he appears to be looking at her – not her more glamorous sister.
Gregori feels the heavy weight of the entire race of vampires on his shoulders as he goes to meet the President. He knows his mission, just not what it will take to achieve it. Gregori has always wondered what happened to the President’s other daughter and is very surprised to learn she is not only all grown up but a serious and hard working scientist. Their meeting is packed with awareness and shimmering passion. When the vampires learn what the President wants in return for his help in keeping the vampires hidden surprises everyone – getting Abigail in and out of China safely with the rare plants. Very doable on the surface; however, as Gregori gets to know more about Abigail the less he wants to let her face any danger. What starts out as a business adventure on both sides quickly turns into a passionate and adventurous journey where one wrong move can get Gregori, Abigail and their team killed.
Abigail is about to learn that vampires are more than a myth in books and movies and that one of them can be too sexy for his clothes. Sexiest Vampire Alive takes Gregori and Abigail on a whirlwind adventure containing both suspense and passion. There was no doubt in my mind that Abigail would have done anything to find a way to heal her mother. However, I could see that believing in vampires was pushing her limits, at first. Gregori might have been acting like a playboy, but once you got to know him it was obvious that there was so much more beneath the surface. Watching as Gregori and Abigail discovered each other had me not wanting to put down their story. I so enjoyed watching their journey into love. What really had me going in the end was the extent Gregori would go to prove to Abigail the depth and strength of his love. Sexiest Vampire Alive is the best type of love story, filled with suspense and passion with just enough danger to keep you on the edge of your seat.
