“The thing to remember about a ‘stray’ vampire is that there is probably a good reason he is friendless, alone, and wounded. Approach with caution.” Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow’s only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she’d like. Running their daylight errands—from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled Faux Type O—gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vamps. Her rules are strict; relationships are purely business, not friendship—and certainly not anything more. Then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and her quiet life turns upside down. Cal—who would be devastatingly sexy, if Iris thought vampires were sexy—offers Iris a hefty fee for hiding him at her place. And even though he’s imperious, unfriendly, and doesn’t seem to understand the difference between “employee” and “servant,” she agrees. But as they search for who wants him permanently dead, Iris is breaking more and more of her own rules . . . particularly those about nudity. Could it be that what she really needs is some intrigue and romance—and her very own stray vampire?

First finished item I'm slotting in for Vampires v Werewolves, because the book had both (though any fighting was friendly bitching). There's going to be probably 3-4 Molly Harper titles slotted in variously around this bingo board... Like most Molly Harper the book is a fun candy read with snar...
PNR - it was a sweet read, with a lot of banter, sarcasm and sense of humor. Exactly what you need when your life is difficult, stressy or just boring.
I have yet to read a Molly Harper book that I didn't love. They are just snarky fun. When you are looking for a book that doesn't take itself too seriously and is just a fun read, anything by this author works. I can't say that I loved this one as much as her Jane Jameson series, but it was still a ...
"The man was just unsettling; there was no other way to put it. I couldn't seem to get my conversational bearings around him. And clearly, he had a negative impact on my decision-making skills, because I'd agreed to cohabitate with someone who was cranky, condescending, and prone to bouts of stagger...
