Are you responsible for lifting a centuries-old curse from the sexiest vampire you’ve ever seen?

Does a demon lord want to destroy you?

Have you somehow inadvertently bound several mummies to your soul?

Are you the last hope for a lost little boy?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any of the above . . . you’re in big trouble!

Those are a few of the problems facing Nell Harris, a real charmer—no, really . . . a real Charmer—once she hooks up with Adrian Tomas. A devastatingly hot Dark One who’s earned the unfortunate title “the Betrayer” for selling out his own kind to a very nasty demon, Adrian needs Nell in the worst way. Though she’d be way better off keeping her distance, Nell can’t help but find this tormented, undead Betrayer dude just a little too tempting. And this time her penchant for bad boys might cost her more than her heart . . . but her immortal soul as well!

I enjoy this series, but this one just had a few parts that dragged on a little bit. Still very humorous, which I like. more
I stumbled upon this series several years ago. Prior to reading Ms. MacAlister, I had stayed with vampire tales more along the lines of Ann Rice. Suffice it to say, Ms. MacAlister reformed me. Ever since reading this book, I have been a sucker for a good vampire romance. To date, I have read the entire Dark Ones series (and am anxiously awaiting the next installment).If you enjoy this author's style of writing, you should also read her Guardian series!more
Vampire romance is a genre, which too often takes itself too seriously and stumbles over its own cliches. Let's take for example Christine Feehan -whom I very much dislike- and her whole one-soulmate-for-a-perfect-hero-who-can-read-minds-and-is-invincible thing. What can possibly be more boring than a hero who is so perfect and invincible that he makes you want to puke?! However, Katie MacAlister's Sex, Lies and Vampires manages to be a very refressing, enjoyable and funny book despite the fact that she uses the same one soulmate/beloved and mindreading cliches than Feehan. The difference is, that MacAlister treats the cliches with humor (you can even see a little parodical elements in the book). I especially loved the easy flowing, sassy and sizzling dialogue and the relationship between the main characters. Adrian is certainly hot (and not at all too perfect) and Nell is funny, even though at the end I got a bit tired of her constant babbling. MacAlister's writing reminds me of Karen Chance, whom I also like, although there's much more dialogue and less high-octane action. I definitely recommend this book to anyone, who likes their vampire romances to have some action, funny and sexy dialogue and a main couple with sparks between them.more
A not bad but pretty typical Vampire Romance. So not in the Horror genre, there was no real horror or sense of doom in it mostly because the main character, Nell Harris, has a great sense of humour about the entire thing and really doesn't take anything all that seriously.When she's asked to look into a kidnapping because of her ability to work charms and defuse them, she finds herself in cahoots with a man who is considered one of the ultimate evil.Owes a fair bit to the likes of Christine Feehan (who has a blurb on the front) but honestly I found it more readable than hers.The author would have done well to talk to people recovering from strokes and long-term disability tho, cause apart from some comments by Nell about her disabilty I really didn't get a feeling that it got in the way.more
Third in the Dark One series. I liked this book particularly because there was a good story/adventure surrounding the romance. It also had MacAllister’s usual humor.more
Hilarious, fun. It occurs to me that I wouldn't want to read too many KatieMac books back to back--the heroines have a certain similarity which could get wearing after a while. But in small doses, it's a fun character. The heroine is a 'charmer'--that is, she can charm spells and wards--undo evil spells, things like that. But the last time she tried, it left her best friend dead and her in the hospital for 3 months with a stroke. She's hired to rescue a young boy, and ends up in the middle of feuding vampires and back up against the very demon lord responsible for her previous disaster. Treachery, a misunderstood hero, just all around fun.more
