Dot from New York — who blogs a lot about vampire books for PR — sends us this light-hearted pick — AFTER MIDNIGHT — by Teresa Medeiros. Medeiros also writes historical romance, including THE DEVIL WEARS PLAID — which I recently read because I was really in the mood for a story about a hunky Scottish hero! But — here’s Dot’s paranormal pick by the same author! (Thanks again Dot!)

***

It was a welcome discovery, finding historical vampire romances.  AFTER MIDNIGHT is  my first novel by Teresa Medeiros and such a delightful one.  I had a permanent smile throughout the entire book.

The heroine, Caroline, has come to London along with her younger sister Portia to meet Viscount Trevelyan, who is courting their sister Vivienne.  There are rumors that the viscount is a vampire.  Since Caroline is the guardian of her sisters, she feels it is up to her to dispel or, perhaps, confirm these rumors once and for all.  But will she fall under the spell of the charming viscount in her attempts at discovering the truth?

The witty reparte throughout the book is so smart and never silly, totally laugh-inducing.  There is a lovely romance or two or three and there is evil that threatens to bring everyone down.  If you want a break from dark vampire stories then this is the book to send you off in a new direction.

This does sound like a fun book. I haven’t particularly enjoyed many of the modern PNR books I’ve read but perhaps a historical one would be more enjoyable for me.

You will absolutely love this book! I wasn’t sure about the whole vampire thing, but this book was different. And I LOVED the sequel to this book! It’s called
” The Vampire Who Loved Me.” I laughed so hard! The characters are hilarious! I highly recommend both!

I have read the book about that is all about Portia now I look forward to reading about her sister and how her saga came about.

Twitter? Moi? I won’t even let people friend me on Facebook I’m so scared they will find out the real me. LOL Okay not totally true, I have about 6 friends on facebook and they are all family + one author but they already know I’m a little “out there”. What if everyone found out I’ve a panting crush on Alex O’Laughlin as both Mick St. John and Steve McGarritt. Or that I search out romantic songs on YouTube to post to my profile. I won’t friend my husband because of the O’Laughlin obsession (what he doesn’t know can’t hurt him, right?)

You could put your avatar on Twitter! You would love it. You could just follow authors. You wouldn’t have to post a thing! (But I know after a while you would. It’s hard when people are talking about books and things you like.) You can even check out my feed at http://www.twitter.com/mcdiana … altho I am on Facebook with my real pics (Diana Chiyo McCabe gets you there.) re crushes — well — you can either post ’em and keep them so only certain friends see it … or not post! Altho I think it is a lot of fun. On vacay now. Just starting to read “Paranormalcy.” Have a slew of things to read so I can blog about ’em!

It really does sound like a really fun book! I am new to this genre… I have been reading “Stronger Than Sin,” a great paranormal romance by Caridad Piñeiro and am just really loving the whole paranormal/fiction story plot. Can’t wait to read “After Midnight.”
