Gwenna Carrick just wants to move on with her life. After all she’s been divorced from her controlling vampire husband, Roberto Donatelli, for 300 years. You would think a man would move on by now! Gwenna is a 900 year old vampire but she tries to keep her blood sucking ways a secret from mortals. Gwenna is part of a Vampire Slayers’ loop online who are determined to kill as many vampires as possible. Gwenna enjoys having her ears open to her enemies and what better way then for her, a vampire, to infiltrate their group. When she hears that the vampire slayers plan on meeting in Las Vegas, where she lives, she tries to work out a meeting between one of the guys and herself.
Gwenna shows up at the meeting place but when she arrives she finds a dead body drained of all his blood. This looks suspiciously like a vampire has killed him, but Gwenna isn’t sure. The Homicide Detective investigating the case is Nate Thomas, a very sexy mortal. Sparks start to fly between Nate and Gwenna, which is a dangerous thing when you are trying to hide the fact that you’re a vampire from a cop!
As the bodies pile up, drained of fluid, Nate and Gwenna investigate the case together. How will she keep her secret and stop a killer without letting Nate know of her true identity? Will Nate still like Gwenna if he finds out she’s a vampire or will she loose him forever with her lies?
SUCKER BET is the fourth book in Erin McCarthy’s Vegas Vampires series. This is a very entertaining story that has a little bit of everything in it. There’s romance, mystery, humor, suspense, and of course blood sucking vampires! The love story between Nate and Gwenna is really romantic and you can’t help but root for a happy ending. The writing is smooth and flows very nicely. I loved every word of this book and I hope there’s more coming in this wonderful series.
