Kismet Knight is a Denver psychologist in her own quiet practice when life as she knows it takes a sharp turn. She’s not one to believe in things that go bump in the night, but by the time she finishes her first session with a teen named Midnight, Kismet is intrigued by the girl’s belief that vampires exist.

Meeting Devereux, an 800 year old vampire, is an experience all its own. Kismet can’t quite shake the feelings that bombard her when he’s near, but that alone won’t convince her that his existence is only possible through the ingestion of blood. Then a would be client shows up at her office nearly drained of blood and Kismet finds herself involved in one blood related nightmare after another.

FBI profiler Alan Stevens has been following the trail of a murderous vampire that has led him right to Denver, and to Kismet’s front door. Dedicated to finding the monster, Alan sticks close to Kismet as she becomes its next target. Alan’s obsession with finding the killer will keep him from staying in Denver, but before he leaves he’s going to make sure Kismet knows exactly where he stands.

The Vampire Shrink is the first book in the refreshing Kismet Knight, Vampire Psychologist series. Kismet lives her life blissfully unaware that vampires share her world until she meets Devereux, and now there’s no going back. Ms. Hilburn pens a deliciously sexy and easily believable vampire tale. Vivid characterization, a touch of mystery, and a ton of passion, make this alternate Denver a place that readers will be looking forward to visiting again.

Get out of my mind!! I just got home from Borders and was slightly irritated that they didn't have this book. I'm going to order it this weekend.

*grin* We both have great taste in reading. That's not a fun trip when you come home empty handed! Definitely one you should have in your TBR pile. :)
