DANCING WITH A VAMPIRE: A Paranormal Romance by Anthony Auriemma, Carolyn Chambers Clark
In this young adult paranormal romance, a spunky teen, forced to enter a national dance contest must avoid the temptations of her vampire partner and the pressures of being on weekly TV if she hopes to survive.
Seventeen-year-old Delilah Jones doesn’t know a steamy tango from a sensual rumba. She's never competed with outrageous teen couples desperate to win a competition and willing to do anything to survive, or dealt with the weekly pressure of knowing she could be eliminated at any moment. She’s never had to dance in front of anyone, let alone before a live television audience of millions or live in a Gothic castle where she's sure her dance partner is a vampire. When she meets handsome Hendrik Court, she has no idea what she's in for. Dancing against his gorgeous body day after day leaves her no option but to want more of him.
Hendrik Court tries to conceal his attraction for the virgin, Delilah. When he suggests they become voyeurs and peek at the liaisons of their dance teachers, both of them become aroused. This old soul has had many lovers in his many lives, but Delilah offers a fresh and untouched flower complete with her nectar of love. When an old flame of Hendrik's uses all her tricks to drive them apart, he reaches across all the centuries of knowledge to choose whether lust or love will win.
I'm not sure how to describe this book. The beginning story line was great. I really got into the book with the author's descriptions of events. But once the competition started it kind of went downhill from there. I do have to admit that there were several parts that I just skimmed through since it was pretty much the same lines over and over. There were quite a few grammatical and spelling errors but it didn't really detract from reading too badly. Overall it was an okay story. Just could use less of the "fluff" during the competition.
