I found A Shade of Vampire an intriguing concept. While I am not a vampire fan, a close friend recommended and then lent me the book. I had taken the day off and I curled up with the book. I liked the main character, Sophia. She won me over with her open mind and open heart. I respected Derek, because he grew and had an incredible amount of restraint. Lucas was the villain you want to run a stake through yourself – at least I did – so he was well written. I found it a worthy book to spend the day with. Thank you Bella Forrest.
