The Fangover

Erin McCarthy and Kathy Love
Berkley Sensation
ISBN:  0-425-25323-6
November 2012
Paranormal Romance

Erin McCarthy and Kathy Love join teams to create the unusual tale, THE FANGOVER.  After the unexpected death of her musician brother, Johnny, vampire Stella drowns her sorrows in alcohol and seeks comfort from her vampiric friend, Wyatt.  Wyatt’s loved Stella for years, and now that he finally has the chance to show Stella how much he cares for her, things go awry.  Surprisingly, each of Johnny’s bandmembers also has some strange experiences; Berto Cortez awakens married to a newly turned vampire, Saxon has a cross burned into his forehead, and Drake is missing a fang. No one knows exactly what happened, but each of their situations must be resolved in order to bring about those happily-ever-afters.

As a paranormal retelling of the popular movie, THE HANGOVER, this novel is likely to appeal to readers who appreciate a heavy dose of humor mixed in with their romance.  THE FANGOVER has an abundance of characters that can be hard to keep straight.  There’s plenty of romantic tension, as well as plenty of convoluted twists that are entertaining and surprising.  An engaging read!
