About Lori Brighton

I have a degree in Anthropology and worked as a museum curator. Deciding the people in my imagination were slightly more exciting than the dead things in a museum basement, I set out to become an author. My first book, a historical romance, was published by Kensington in November of 2009.

Review by: J Monkeys on March 14, 2011 :
What a lovely romance! I liked the unique take on vampirism and how one becomes a vampire. Meg and Grayson are nicely drawn characters, each with responsibilities they can't abandon. They come together quite nicely without all the let's-not-admit-our-true-feelings-and-thereby-drag-out-the-plot silliness of older romances.

Review by: Jessa (Dhanger) on March 07, 2011 :
Meg James is muddling through life trying to protect her family from indiscretion and scandal when she meets a mysterious stranger who proceeds to complicate her life even more. Grayson Bellamont, a 400 year old vampire, is looking for answers about the murder of his family and the whereabouts of his missing niece but he gets more than he bargains for when he mets Meg, a poor Vicar's daughter. Grayson thinks Meg holds the answers and Meg will do anything to protect her family. Both hold crucial secrets that threaten to tear their worlds apart and they must set aside their differences and work together. The more time they spend together the more their mutual mistrust and suspicions slowly turn into affection and respect. Grayson never thought that he could love anyone, much less a human, but Meg holds a piece of his heart and he cannot deny the feelings that she innocently arouses in him. Meg and Grayson work through many secrets and doubts before they are able to claim the love they feel for one another.

Review by: Blodeuedd Finland on Feb. 14, 2011 :
Plot:
It's the story of Meg, a nice Vicar's daughter, who is more than tempted than a mysterious stranger moves in next door. A hot neighbour. Grayson is a vampire who is hunting for clues about his missing niece and that leads him to Meg, but can she be a killer?

My thoughts:
Meg was nice and sweet, Grayson was very tempting, but a bit of an idiot sometimes too. But who can blame him, everything does point to Meg being a killer, and having killed more than once.

This is not only the story about him wanting answers, because soon there is a body and a murder mystery. Which introduces a man I loathed, did he have nothing better to do than accuse innocent women? A bit of a semi-bad guy and a total ass.

There is also the romance, because Grayson lusts after her, even if she is only a human, and he believes she might have killed. And she, well who could say no to him. Passion promised too.

A negative thing would be that Grayson could be a bit hasty in his conclusions sometimes, but then again even though he let her know that he thought she might have done something, he still protected her too. Poor guy, he was very conflicted. So he redeemed himself in wanting to save her.

Recommendation and final thoughts:
A nice historical paranormal romance. Murder, mystery, romance and vampires. When I finished the book I also had a wish, Meg has a certain friend, and I would love for that friend to get a HEA.
