What happens when one vampire becomes accustomed to another?

Marion has always reminded Vlad of Miss Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady. Everything from her hair to her accent, and especially her fiery temper. When Vlad’s Eliza quits after being pushed too far, what is he to do without her?

Can an old vampire change his ways?

Vlad and Marion have had an interesting and antagonistic past. From the few brief glimpses I had of their time together, I got the impression that Marion has put up with an unbelievable amount of bad behavior from Vlad. He really takes her presence for granted. I honestly can’t believe she didn’t walk out on him before now. Will Vlad realize just how important Marion is to him before it’s too late?

I do wish the relationship between Marion and Vlad had been explored more. While I was able to get a fairly good sense of their personalities and their relationship, I was left wanting to know a little more about their shared past. Despite this issue, I think that Vlad and Marion make an interesting couple. Marion strikes me as a no nonsense sort of woman whose patience can only be pushed so far. Vlad seems a little arrogant and entitled, but I have a feeling that Marion knows just how to get under his skin. Her reaction to his declaration of love had me laughing out loud.

I think that the conflict between Marion and Vlad was resolved too quickly. Given the way Vlad had been behaving, I definitely think that Marion should have let him stew a while longer. This would have drawn the tension out and added just a bit more suspense to the story. As it was, everything was wrapped up very quickly and felt a little rushed.

Overall, I enjoyed reading My Fair Vampire. Marion and Vlad are fun, and their story is quick and easy to read. Anyone looking for a fast paranormal romance to fill up a few spare moments should check it out.
