Book Review: Sai Marie Johnson's The Dark Priesthood: The Confessions of Malevolence

It tells the story of a young girl in 18th Century New Orleans who, one night, has a rather unwelcomed (or maybe welcomed, however you want to see it:) ) visitor.

Argeneau 10-Year Anniversary: ONE LUCKY VAMPIRE, My Fave Couple, Quiz, Giveaway!

It's hard for me  to believe that this series is ten years old partly because I just discovered it in 2008 or so, and partly because I think Lynsay keeps it remarkably fresh.  When Avon asked if I wanted to participate in this celebration I leaped at the chance, and had a hard time choosing which couple in the series were my favorite.  Honestly I could make a case for any of them, and with my short attention span it's usually the last book I read that I love best! But, UNDER A VAMPIRE MOON (My Review) has a special charm for me because it came out as my husband and I were planning our 30th wedding anniversary.  Lynsay's story was so captivating and the setting of St. Lucia so very romantic that we seriously considered taking a trip there for our special event.  When Vampires Go On Vacation ....
