He’s a bloodsucking freak of nature. But, unlike other politicians, Ethan Carrick is actually a nice guy. Not to mention a very hot, wealthy, casino-owning vampire. It’s an election year for vampires, which means he’ll first have to escape his opponent’s hit men. Then he’ll have to find a suitable First Lady, preferably here in Vegas. Brittany Baldizzi fits the bill. She’s smart, pretty- and sweeter than a glass of diabetic O-Negative. But her protective sister Alexis steps in with a message for Ethan: Bite me. It’s then that he realizes it’s the sexy, no-nonsense Alexis who raises his stake. And as much as she denies it, Alexis wouldn’t mind a romp in the coffin with him. But can a mere mortal, even one who risks her life for him, make a centuries-old, womanizing vampire feel something entirely new?

This is exactly what I was looking for. It had me laughing my butt off. :) I only gave it 4 stars because Alexis kinda annoyed me with her whole "I'm a badass" act. Although I've read the other books and she keeps it up so oh well. It was a great book, easy read and very funny from the first page.
Tak naprawdę to jej nie przeczytałam, może to wina tłumaczenia, ale mnie nudziła i nie skupiała mnie wystarczająco. Możliwe że do niej wkrótce wrócę, bo lubię mieć skończone to co zaczęte.
I downloaded this book and I'm beginning to wonder if maybe I'm missing the 2nd half of the book because it just stops... I'm really confused and will have to get to the bottom of this. Challenge accepted.
I liked this story with alpha hero and heroine who had funny and witty banter eventually getting steamy but plot moved a bit slow making my rating 3.5* Ethan is running for re-election as vampire president and looking for first lady. He finds a sweet woman but is more attracted to her sister Alexi...
