“I didn't realize that the author intended the story to be rather funny; at first it sounded pretty stupid. Blythe is from the future (24th century), taking a tour around 1785. It's more of a business trip for her in that her boss wants her to heal the depressed vampire, Darach. Instead, Blythe and Darach are attracted to each other, and since she's not allowed to mix business with pleasure, Darach finds interesting ways to make love without either of them actually touching each other. It was okay; better after I started noticing that the book was made out to be humorous, but not one of my favorites.”Beth W wrote this review Sunday, May 9, 2010.

This book takes a "happiness specialist" from 2339 on a time travel business trip to the Scottish Highlands in 1785. Once there, she has to face two cosmic troublemakers, one who is supposed to be reformed and the other of which specializes in "S+E=X. Seduction plus evil equals x-citement". However, Blythe is supposed to prove to her supervisor that she can make his chosen test subject happy without using any sensual solutions. Her supervisor chooses the one person that will make this the most difficult to accomplish - the 500+ year-old vampire that refuses to admit he has any emotions, much less that he needs any happiness that doesn't come from sensuality. This leads to a battle of wills, especially when the "cosmic troublemaker" decides to throw them into one room by cutting a hole in the vampire's bedroom floor. They also face maddened vampires drawn to their clan's home to end their lives and a group of crazed women seeking immortality by capturing vampires.
Although the story line is completely crazy, I really enjoyed this first book in the MacKenzie Vampires series. I actually read the third book several months ago, not realizing it was part of a series, but this one gave me more insight into the two cosmic troublemakers who appear in the third as well (Blythe and Darach are mentioned in it, but aren't part of the storyline). If you enjoy paranormal romance of the amusing brand, this book (and series) is a good choice.
“It took me a bit to get into this book... A group of 24th century vacationing time travellers visiting Scotland in the 1700's. Girl meets 500 year old sex on the brain Viking-ish vampire... a little wacky to say the least however Blythe and Sparkles characters are pretty funny. ”KimmieLinh wrote this review Monday, December 1, 2008.
