Set in the same world as Galaxy Tryst and Galaxy Fever.
It’s not often you find vampires on sunny, tropical space cruises. So when she spots one at the ship’s beach, strolling through the manufactured waves, Tamsin can’t help but look her fill. The vamp’s tiny swimsuit has nothing to do with it. At all. When the vamp glances at her, she chickens out and runs away. So much for the adventurous vacation she’d hoped for.
The vampire, Darian, seeks her out, however. Looks like she’ll have her adventure after all! Too bad it’s of the dangerous variety; Darian wants Tamsin to pose as his girlfriend while he surreptitiously searches for a fugitive aboard the ship. But as Tamsin soon discovers, fake girlfriends can still indulge in very real sex. This could turn out to be Tamsin’s sexiest vacation ever—if she manages to live through it.
I loved this book. I had not read Galaxy Tryst and Galaxy Fever, both of which I will be reading shortly, I hope. But I fell in love with this book—everything about it—from the opening paragraph.
Written in First Person, this is the tail of Tamsin, on vacation from her cold, dreary space station. She resides on a cruise ship and spots a Vampire—Darian—her first day on the beach. She is pale, eating too much, feeling chubby in her bathing suit, and terribly sunburned. He spots her and she flees.
That is the beginning of their adventure together. Darian is a bounty hunter on the ship looking for his target. As Tamsin becomes involved in the chase, things get hot between them even as Tamsin stumbles her way through the adventure.
Ms. Leigh did a great job in this book of writing a wonderful, interesting, likable first person narrative with a character I loved to cheer on. Darian in the right combination of hot and brooding to keep the heat sizzling between them.
I highly, highly recommend this book to everyone. It's on my favorite list.
