Aspiring actress Abbey Marie Cordova knows more than most people do about vampires—she was born among them, the only human child in a centuries-old family of the undead, and determined to stay that way. But a chance encounter with dark, mysterious Niccola Desanto rocks her to the core. Nick is a vampire, and he’s the only man who has ever made her feel so beautiful, so cherished, and so passionately desired …

Nick has spent hundreds of years on his own, and the decadent pleasures of the world have lost their appeal. Rumor has it the vampire who made him has regained her humanity—the temptation to find her and demand to know the secret is overwhelming. But one glance at innocently alluring Abbey changes everything. Drawn to her with dangerous, consuming passion, Nick will need more than a lifetime to love her…

Quick & Dirty: A chance meeting, a secret, a human surrounded by the supernatural, will there love find a way?

Opening Sentence: “Abbey Marie Cordova stood on the balcony of her small New York apartment.”

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Abbey is an aspiring actress who has just begun to realize that she just doesn’t have what it takes when a chance meeting with Nick changes everything. She agrees to go out with him, and they have a great date and make another date for the next night. However, that night there is a car accident and Abbey wakes alone in his condo, but Nick is no where to be found. Only when she gets home and her father asks about the new vampire does she realize that Nick is a vampire.

She then leaves New York to return with her vampire father to California. Only to have Nick follow her there, and they all find out he is over 2,000 years old. Mara is his maker, and they have a secret past. Edna and Pearl have disappeared, and everyone is concerned because the hunters are in a up roar about the death of the most famous hunter. It also turns out that Edna and Pearl have a cure for vampirism. In fact, the hunters that kidnapped them are looking for that cure. Nick is also intrigued by the cure, although no one is sure because of his age if it will work or not.

Nick and Abbey are firmly in love by this point despite her insecurity about Mara (who is also her friend). Her vampire parents have misgivings considering he is a bit older than her and not human. But this cure could change everything!

I really enjoyed this book, it was pure paranormal romance, with a little bit of mystery thrown in. I just have to say that as for the usual, I haven’t read this series. I don’t know if this picks up from the last book, but considering I wasn’t horribly lost, I am going to go with each book focuses on a couple instead of a larger continuing series. Although, I am sure most of these characters would be familiar if you are a fan of the series and not picking up book 7 like I did. I did laugh a little bit, I mean Abbey doesn’t know Nick is a vampire, despite being raised by them, I thought that aspect was crazy. However, overall I really like the cure, and the fact that this book had witches, werewolves and vampires!

I mean if you are going to read paranormal it should have it all! Night’s Surrender was a quick easy read, and not heavy on the sex and light on the story! So if you like paranormal romances this series is right up your lane!

Notable Scenes:

“She had a .22 semiautomatic in her purse-a going away present from her father.”

“They never realized he was there, never suspected they were in danger until it was too late.”

“If there was one thing she did know it was that hunters were often more ruthless than the vampires they hunted.”

“The pair looked more like bingo-playing grandmothers than blood sucking vampires.”

“A man who wouldn’t look at eleven helpless humans and think of them as lunch.”

“She had to realize the cure was failing.”
