“The thing to remember about a ‘stray’ vampire is that there is probably a good reason he is friendless, alone, and wounded. Approach with caution.” Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow’s only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she’d like. Running their daylight errands—from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled Faux Type O—gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vamps. Her rules are strict; relationships are purely business, not friendship—and certainly not anything more. Then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and her quiet life turns upside down. Cal—who would be devastatingly sexy, if Iris thought vampires were sexy—offers Iris a hefty fee for hiding him at her place. And even though he’s imperious, unfriendly, and doesn’t seem to understand the difference between “employee” and “servant,” she agrees. But as they search for who wants him permanently dead, Iris is breaking more and more of her own rules . . . particularly those about nudity. Could it be that what she really needs is some intrigue and romance—and her very own stray vampire?


If you’ve been on the blog for a while you know that I loved Molly Harper’s Jane Jameson series.  I feel the same exact way about this spin off Half Moon Hollow series.


Iris is a character that is full of determination, but she also is a super clutz and almost never says the right thing.  Especially when there is a certain smexy vampire in her midst.  Cal is, in all honesty, a pain in the ass.  He has so many demands but begins to actually get used to the idea of Iris.


Iris’s story is told in the same fun and flirty way that the Jane Jameson series is told.  There are hijinx that can be pretty damn fatal for certain persons, and a smart mouthed little sister.  (Gigi is freaking awesome)  We also get to see some of our old friends from before.  And some of them are still as irritating!


If you loved the Jane Jameson series, you’ll adore this first book in the Half Moon Hollow series.
