Roundhouse Publishing editor Kate C. Leever's first letter to her newest legacy author was intended to impress upon him the growing demand for his "vampire romances". Though he'd expressed little to no desire for publicity, book tours or the like, it was clear that this was a writer waiting to be broken out. Correspondence with Mr. Lucern Aregeneau tended to be oddly delayed, but this time his response was quick and succinct.
But Kate was adamant: Luc was going to attend a romance convention to meet his fans. By hook or by crook, despite his reclusive nature, odd sleep schedule and avoidance of the sun, the surly yet handsome Luc was going to be recognized as the real charmer a nationally bestselling author should be. But soon Kate would learn that his novels were more biographies than bodice rippers, and it'd be her neck on the line.
A sweeter surrender, or more heartwarming love story - his own - Luc has yet to write.

"A Screwball Comedy with the Sex"
According to the Wikipedia Andrew Sarris defined the screwball comedy as 'a sex comedy without the sex'. Single White Vampire, the best of the Argeneau novel I have read so far, has all the ingredients of the Hollywood classics --plus sex--.
As the main character, Lucern Argeneau, evolves from cloistered bachelor to lover and Kate Leever gets her way, the plot turns left and right and puts them in increasingly mad situations.
I never expected a vampire romance novel to be so funny.
Jeffrey Cummings, on the other hand, is an amazing narrator. He manages to give the story this 1940's hollywoodian touch the novel is claiming. I would have loved to see Gary Cooper and Jean Arthur in the movie (a G-rated one, obviously, though I suspect I wouldn't mind at all).
I miss Cumming's performance terribly in the other books of the series.
