DraculaVille by Lara Nance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Let me first say that stereotypical vampires are not my thing. I'm not into the whole Twilight craze. Having said that, this book is different. A newly made, mostly dead vampire with no recollection of his past and no desire to hurt anyone finds love with an uptight success driven ad executive. A plot with so much potential conflict which the author delivers throughout. I love the secondary characters, they really make the story breathe. And I love the transformation of the heroine as she discovers what's important in life. She certainly didn't think it was a vampire!
This book kept me turning the pages, staying up way past my bedtime, night after night. I was sorry when it was over and I can't wait to follow up with Drake's adventures (for that is what this book is!) in California.

Mirage by Clive Cussler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As always, Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul deliver nonstop, full on action with core characters I care about. The crew of the Oregon is family (as stated at the end) and while they are mercenaries, they are honorable men and women who choose jobs with a conscience.
I never want to give away a book's plot or twists because those are the parts I like the best. I will say that if you like history, science and intrigue woven through your thriller/adventure, this is right series. Cussler and Du Brul created a killer stew filled with Cold War Russia, Tesla theory and current events and finished it off with a stiff shot of action filled rescues.
This book was released some time ago and I bought it right away (hardcover from CostCo, because there are just some authors I collect), it is only now that I take a break from writing to read. So good I read it in less than 24 hours (had to sleep sometime) and so sad when I turned the last page.
