Meet Tucker. An honest-to-God cowboy with holes in the least romantic way, with holes in his boots and little interest in journalists from New York City. That is, until he meets Lizzie, a city slicker who flies into Lone Pine, Wyoming in an attempt to find the real deal and write a piece about The Last Cowboy.
It might seem like a fling, but what Tucker doesn’t know is that Lizzie is getting herself wrapped up in an investigative piece about a strange new club culture in New York that fetishizes vampire lore. What Lizzie doesn’t know is that what appears at first to be pop culture gone wrong is a bona-fide vampire resurgence, and she’s caught in the middle of it. Soon, Lizzie and Tucker are dragged into the middle of a timeless Vampire war, and their innocent fling becomes more than they expect.
What makes this book so good is the varied voices. Truly an unusual romance, Lizzie and Tucker are written separately by two different authors, breathing a unique voice into each character. The love story is deftly woven into the plot, and the complicated vampire backstory holds up to close scrutiny. With a charming sense of humor, McFall and Hays do an excellent job of balancing romance, action and world building.
With a fast pace and a well-developed world of vampire intrigue, THE COWBOY AND THE VAMPIRE is a perfect easy read for lovers of all adventure novels. More than a romance and breaking the stereotypes of both cowboys and vampires, this is a must-read if you enjoy unique fiction and fast-paced plots.
