Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: April 3, 2012
I received this book from Sterling Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Kismet Knight, a brainy Denver-based psychologist with a stalled career and a nonexistent love life, is about to have her world rocked. Not only does her newest patient, Midnight, long to become a vampire, but the teenager insists that a coven of the undead hangs out at a local goth club. The always-rational Kismet dismisses Midnight's claims as the delusions of an attention-starved girl--until bodies start turning up drained of blood and the hottest self-proclaimed vampire ever to walk the face of the earth enters her office.
What's real? What's not? As inexplicable events and romantic opportunities pile up, along with the corpses, Kismet finds herself in a whirlwind of passion, mystery, and danger. But this tough and funny heroine--who doesn't do damsel in distress--is about to turn the vampire-meets-girl convention on its head.
**If your thinking this title seems familiar, you would be right. Kismet Knight, Ph.D; Vampire Psychologist series is being re-written and re-release from Sterling Publishing.
Thoughts: Dr. Kismet Knight is a psychologist living in Denver. With no love life - her career is her life. New patient by the name of Midnight yearns to be a vampire. Dr. Knight thinks this is crazy and finds the things Midnight says to be impossible. That is until Kismet meets vampire Devereux and her world and the way she looks at it is forever changed.
This is actually the second time reading this book (first time being in 2009) and I love it just as much as I did back then. Ms. Hilburn's take on vampires is unique. The Vampire Shrink is a totally engrossing read. Filled with mystery, action and romance. I was quite taken with Devereux and look forward to reading more about him and Kismet. If you are a vampire lover this book is a must read.
Score: 4 Stars
