The Gentle Man / The Loyal Man (books 12 and 13)

The Gentle Man / Michelle Montague Mogil

Synopsis – A dissatisfied wife struggles to hold her marriage and her life together. Seems some of her needs are not being met. As luck would have it, she encounters a pitiable drifter with a taste for blood. The drifter tells her he has some things she needs… and she reluctantly agrees. He then fulfills her needs, but gives her a few more needs she must meet. So the long-suffering wife jilts her long-suffering husband for a new life with her drifter. Trouble is, now she’s a vampire. Sometimes love sucks.

Reaction – The wife and her lover were sympathetic, and I enjoyed watching their love story unfold. The husband was a bit bland, but I guess it’s hard to compete with the stuff of myth and legend. Lots of curious instances of the wife covering the shift of an ill-fallen pub co-worker. Lots of implausible law elusion by the blood-thirsty duo. And the wife certainly took her time rescuing her vampire lord from an unfortunate circumstance. Perhaps she was enjoying playing coy after being neglected for so long. Overall, I found the characters engaging and the plot suspenseful.

Recommendation – This book renewed my will to live.

The Loyal Man / Michelle Montague Mogil

Synopsis – A long-suffering husband reconciles with his long-suffering wife for a renewed life together. In the process of adjusting to their new lifestyles, they make some friends, make some enemies, and make each other jealous. See, the trouble is, now he’s a vampire too. Sometimes love keeps on sucking.

Reaction – For book 2 of the Love Eternal set, the POV shifts from the wife to the husband, and the story is filled with a bunch of vampires, vampire sympathizers, and vampire wannabes. A dizzying cast with dizzying motivations. I felt I was reading the script to a vampire soap opera. So much fickle and fawn. Overall, I found the characters interesting insomuch as they were perplexing and… sexy. Vampires are sexy. They can’t help it.

Recommendation – This book renewed my will to live.
