Five Fabulous Fangs for Susan Blexrud's Fang Shui

Dr. Lauren Marsh marries John Wright, vampire vigilante extraordinaire, in Susan Blexrud’s new novel, FANG SHUI, the sequel to LOVE FANG. The love-smitten couple is about to leave on their honeymoon to Italy , when Lauren receives a threatening note from a vengeful vampire named Amy. Amy was produced by John’s first wife, Catherine, a wicked vampire, who he killed because of her penchant for children. Amy is a ruthless vampire in London with a gang of young, malicious vampires at her disposal.

John and Lauren’s lust for each other oozes intense, raw passion. They can’t seem to get one minute alone together and their libido’s are threatening to spill over into public display. Fortunately, John’s strong vampire instincts kick in and he teaches Lauren how to control hers too.

In Italy , John enlists the help of his old-time friend, Lucianno, to finish off Amy for good. Lucianno is a handsome, debonair, vampire, and loves women. He has never married in all his vampire years. Does he find the woman of his dreams?

Suspense builds as John and Lucianno deal with Mafia men and Lauren’s help is unexpectedly recruited too. What unexpected turn of events ensues from their dalliance with the Mafia? Do they destroy Amy and her vampire pack? Will John and Lauren do the tango or are they destined to one-minute quickies?

FANG SHUI is an intriguing blend of suspense, comedy and hot romance with a lot of heart at its core. When Dr. Lauren Marsh, now Mrs. John Wright, receives a threatening note on the day of her honeymoon, love and lust will have to take a backseat until urgent matters are taken care of, mainly vampire troubles. A malicious vampire named Amy is out for revenge against John and his new wife Lauren. I loved how Susan Blexrud infused humorous dialogue into a gripping, spicy and tense plot. She has a gift for making me laugh in all the right places in a world of the strange and different. As John solicits the help from a devilishly handsome playboy vampire named Lucianno, the plot thickens from there. Laurens cute little Chihuahua makes a quick appearance. Ms. Blexrud provides a host of uniquely, unusual characters that provide sparkle and villainy to the story. Rosetta and Doreen add wit and sass to a vampy and provocative tale. FANG SHUI has it all, hilarious and horrific situations, strong characters along with clever dialogue that makes you laugh. FANG SHUI is a sizzling, spirited, story that screams for more!

Whoa, I didn't know this was coming! What a delightful surprise to find a Five-Fang review for Fang Shui. My already glorious day in the mountains has kicked up a notch. Thank you, Rachel and Michelle, for making my day. I'm hard at work on the third book, Real Men Have Fangs, and you gals have given me a shot of inspiration today. Hugs and a big sloppy kiss from the Chihuahua. Susan

Your welcome Susan and thank you! It was so much fun reading and reviewing your sequel to LOVE FANG. Action, suspense, hot romance with a lot of wit and humor is my favorite combination! I can't wait to see what happens next!

Michele L. said...

Oops! Forgot to say, thank you to the little Chihuahua. Can't wait to see you also in the next book!

Okay, Michele, here's a glimpse into Real Men Have Fangs, which is Book Three. Obviously, I have to get Luc back to Meredith. There's just too much sexual tension there to pass up. And Lauren's angry at John for taking the Mafia don as his first client. She's pregnant and a touch hormonal, though she's right to worry. John's new client is a major bad ass, and my dynamic duo are about to find out just how bad he is. Stay tuned, and again, THANKS!

Whoa! Sounds like a fantastic sequel! I can't wait to see what happens between Lucianno and Meredith. You have some wonderful characters in your story! Thanks for the preview!
