But after a near-death experience, she’s come to realize that being a vampire doesn’t mean she has to live a life of luxury. In fact, she’s found that helping humans by donating her own blood can be quite fulfilling.

However, things take an unexpected turn when she meets a human named Tyler who works at the blood bank with her. Despite their differences, they can’t seem to resist each other.

But how can they make a relationship work when they come from two completely different worlds? Follow Emily and Tyler’s journey as they navigate the challenges of a human-vampire romance.

Editoral Review

Kathy Love’s “Fangs But No Fangs” is an enthralling and addictive read, introducing readers to the paranormal world of vampires and their lovers. Published in 2006, the book is an exciting addition to the romantic horror genre that has been gaining popularity over recent years.

Kathy Love, a renowned romance author, is known for her smolderingly steamy writing style, and “Fangs But No Fangs” is no different. The book is a mesmerizing tale about a love triangle involving two vampires and a human.

The two vampires, Roman and Ben, are enemies who are forced to work together to track down a rogue vampire who is threatening to expose the existence of vampire-kind to the world. Amid their mission, they both end up falling for the same woman, Olivia, who is clueless about the existence of vampires.

The story takes readers on a thrilling adventure full of twists and turns, with plenty of steamy romance thrown in. Love’s writing style is descriptive and engaging, and readers can easily visualize the vividly depicted characters and settings.

The book expertly balances action, romance, and suspense, keeping readers on the edge of their seats until the very end. Her characters are complex and well-developed, with each having their own unique personalities and backstories that add depth and richness to the story.

Despite the cliché love triangle plot, Love’s fresh and imaginative take on it sets “Fangs But No Fangs” apart from other books in its genre. The book also tackles themes of prejudice and tolerance, as the vampires and humans grapple with their inherent biases and prejudices towards each other.

However, the book is not without its flaws. The pacing could be slow at times, and a few plot points felt contrived and predictable.

The characterization of Olivia, in particular, could have been better developed, as she often came across as one-dimensional and lackluster compared to the other characters. Overall, “Fangs But No Fangs” is a worthwhile read, especially for those who enjoy the paranormal romance genre.

Love’s deft writing skills make for an enthralling and captivating story that is sure to keep readers hooked until the end. Fans of Charlaine Harris and J.R. Ward will undoubtedly find this book to be a welcome addition to their bookshelves.
