Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She' s quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn't get out much. Not because she's not pretty. She is. Its just that, well, Sookie has this sort of "disability". She can read minds. And that doesn't make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill. He's tall, dark, handsome -- and Sookie can't hear a word he's thinking. He's exactly the type of guy skids been waiting for all her life....

But Bill has a disability of his own: His a vampire with a bad reputation. He hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, all suspected of--big surprise--murder. And when one of Sookie's coworkers is killed, she fears she's next...

Taste of Temptation by Cheryl Holt

Taste of Temptation by Cheryl Holt (Spinster's Cure series book 2)

ISBN: 978-0425235140

Publisher:  Berkley

Helen Hamilton is a twenty-five-year-old spinster with no income and no propects who struggles to care for her two orphaned sisters. Destitute and only a heartbeat away from the streets, Helen applies for a position as a governess to the younger siblings of Captain Tristan Odell, guardian to the Earl of Hastings and his twelve-year-old sister. But when Tristan turns Helen away, her future seems as desperate as her options.

Determined to do whatever it takes to support her sisters, Helen ends up at a brothel run by Mrs. Bainbridge, the former mistress of Vicount Redvers (whom we meet in book one of this series) where she agrees to sell herself as a mistress to a client of wealth and prestige. Low and behold, it is Capt. Odell who buys Helen, but rather than as his mistress, he offers her the governess's position. Enmeshed in an attraction which draws her to Tristan and he to her, their passion quickly grows, as does an unexpected danger that could easily destroy not only their love but their lives as well.
