Lindsay Tanner arrives at Purgatory, a private nightclub north of Darkisle, to study the strange clientele who frequent it. Though she believes the people there are simply indulging in sexual fetishism, she is in for a shock when she realizes that they really are what they pretend to be: vampires. She also does what no researcher should do and becomes involved with two men, Caine and Gabriel, vampires who share an unusual bond.
Both have secrets, and each seems out to destroy the other. Lindsay must find a way to bring them together and resolve her attraction to—not to mention satisfy her lust—for both of them.
Clare C's Review
Cassandra Pierce is a very talented writer with a gift for creating a scene and communicating characters. Caine and Gabriel are a pair of vampire friends who’ve been together for over a century. Caine is the one who accepts his vampirism with gusto, and Gabriel is the one who laments his fate to the point of suicidal melancholy. Lindsay is the woman who will bring meaning to their lives. It’s a neoclassic setup in an Anne-Rice-meets-Kresley-Cole kind of way.
It was an engaging story, from the premise to the end. The bulk of the love story revolves around Lindsay realizing what she really wants in life and settling on a topic for her doctoral dissertation that will impress her superiors. Her research leads to study people who delude themselves into thinking they’re vampires opens her eyes when she stumbles upon the real deal. I would have liked to know more about Gabriel’s inner turmoil, which seemed to go away pretty fast, and about Caine’s emotional detachment. These conflicts seemed to be easily resolved by Lindsay’s love, which makes for a definite happily ever after.
Overall, I liked Loving Two Vampires and I look forward to reading Ms. Pierce’s next installment in the Darkisle series.
