Sex, Lies and Vampires - Book Review by Voodoo Bride

Sex, Lies and Vampires (Dark Ones #3) by Katie MacAlister

What is it about:
As far as she can tell, Nell Harris is either going insane or she is in love. Nell thought she had been summoned to Prague to work on an inscription in a rare fourteenth-century breastplate. Instead, she is immersed in the world of the Moravian Dark Ones (think vampires) when she is swept up in the search for a boy held captive by the demon lord Asmodeus. Although Nell would like nothing better than to use her powers as a "Charmer" to help find the missing boy, the last time she dabbled in magic the consequences were dire. Then Nell meets Adrian Tomas. Bound to serve Asmodeus and forced to betray his fellow Dark Ones, Adrian desperately needs Nell to charm away his curse. One look into Adrian's haunted eyes, and Nell discovers she will do just about anything to save the soul of her new beloved.

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
Of the books I read in this series so far I both love and hate this book the most. I totally adore Nell and Adrian, their romance and the action. Nell isn't as snarky as the female leads in the first two books, but this makes her all the more loveable. And Adrian! Talk about one big bad sexy vampire! On the other hand this book also manages to make my blood boil by having adults act thoughtless, selfish and cruel in my opinion, which leads to a child being the one to pay for their faults. This is one book where I do think a condom and other birthcontrol methods should and could have been used. That major pet peeve aside this is the best book in the series so far and it makes me eager to read more.

Why should you read it:
It's got a really sexy vampire and a hot romance.
