She’s got a scythe, a severed head and she’s looking for love.
Waitress Vivian Shawcross loves a costume party. When Halloween comes along, she can’t wait for the spooky fun to start. However, a mix up over her costume and a road diversion, are just two of the mini disasters she encounters en route to her ghostly night out. Stranded in a remote English village, isn’t her idea of fun, but when a gorgeous vampire is thrown into the equation, Vivian discovers that her fun night out has only just begun.
“Would you like a scythe? I’ve got a beast of a one here.” She watched him hold up the gleaming article, its silver blade, a fitting embodiment of cut and thrust. “It’s the best I can offer at this stage.”
She pursed her lips together in what she hoped was a display of annoyance.
He sighed. “A bloody head and the scythe? I’ve done a great trade in bloody heads this week.” She watched him reach under the counter, before holding aloft a bearded man, his mouth held open in a gaping o shape. Proudly he displayed it to her, the blood dripping from the neck area, as it swung to and fro.
“Personalise him. Give him a name. Let the accessory work for you. Picture it, scythe in one hand, head in the other. Don’t tell me it’s not a look the men folk wouldn’t clamour for.”
She felt her face flush red with frustration.
“Right then, scythe, head and I’ll upgrade you to the black velvet, hooded gown, with inside iPod pocket. Now I can’t say fairer than that.”
Vivian is on her way to meet her friend at a Halloween party but first she needs to get a costume. All that is left at the costume store is Death, so much for the sexy cat woman outfit and finding a guy. As if it could not get worse the costume comes with a severed head. On her way, Vivian crashes her car into a tree. Stuck in the tree is a vampire. Vivian hopes to survive the night.
Vivian’s Vampire was a treat more than a trick of a read. I had so much fun reading this book that I was sad when it ended. It was funny. I dare you to keep a smile off your face as you read all about Vivian's crazy night with vampires and werewolves. Even though it was not Vivian's first choice for a costume, I have to say I really loved her costume complete with a severed head. Pick up a copy of this book today. You will not regret it.
