Fangs for the Memories by Kathy Love

This is the first of Kathy Love's Young family vampire series. I've read 2 out of the 3 Stepp sisters novels in that series and liked them so I thought I'd give these a try. It didn't hurt that these books are damn difficult to get a hold of. So, this one is about Rhys, the oldest sibling in the Young family. Rhys reminds me a lot of Angel (Buffy's ex) - he broods, wears black a lot, carries a lot of guilt - you know, a regular Mary Sunshine. He meets a woman named Jane (of all things) in a bar in NYC and then, a short while later, he saves her from attempted rape. He escorts her back to her hotel and goes back to snack on the rapist when he is attacked. Jane returns to look for a lost necklace and walks in on the attack. When they wake the next morning, they're in the same bed and Rhys thinks he's a viscount in regency England (which he had been) and that he and Jane are betrothed. 

This was a (I thought) kind of goofy book. It reminded me a lot of Lynsay Sands without her humorous slant. And lord knows I love regency England romances but this book didn't, shall we say, scratch all my itches. I do plan to read the next one, Fangs But No Fangs (at least the titles are cute), because I want to see who snatches up Christian, the brother who tried to kill Rhys. To sum it up: not bad but not great. Worth my time, though.
