Review of Vespers by Irene Preston & Liv Rancourt.

Vespers By Irene Preston & Liv Rancourt 4*
BLURB:
Thaddeus Dupont has had over eighty years to forget…
The vampire spends his nights chanting the Liturgy of the Hours and ruthlessly disciplines those unnatural urges he’s vowed never again to indulge. He is at the command of the White Monks, who summon him at will to destroy demons. In return, the monks provide for his sustenance and promise the return of his immortal soul.
Sarasija Mishra’s most compelling job qualification might be his type O blood…
The 22-year-old college grad just moved across the country to work for some recluse he can’t even find on the internet. Sounds sketchy, but the salary is awesome and he can’t afford to be picky.  On arrival he discovers a few details his contract neglected to mention, like the alligator-infested swamp, the demon attacks, and the nature of his employer’s “special diet”. A smart guy would leave, but after one look into Dupont’s mesmerizing eyes, Sarasija can’t seem to walk away. Too bad his boss expected “Sara” to be a girl.
Falling in love is hard at any age…
The vampire can’t fight his hungers forever, especially since Sara’s brought him light, laughter and a very masculine heat. After yielding to temptation, Thaddeus must make a choice.  Killing demons may save his soul, but keeping the faith will cost him his heart.
Vespers is a complete novel with no cliffhanger. It can be enjoyed as a standalone or read as the first book in the Hours of the Night series.

My Review: I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. I have to admit to saying yes to Liv only because the blurb was so interesting. Though I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it with the religious overtones, especially as I rarely read anything with religion in it. It was a good decision as it turned out because the religion had a major part in the story but it wasn't a preachy type of story. Instead it was a great vampire versus demon action romance. There were so many bits in this story that I wanted to add, but each one ended up with spoilers or didn't do the book justice. In fact I enjoyed the story so much that it has taken me almost 24 hours to get around to writing a review that doesn't give away any spoilers. After four attempts I'm going to leave this as is and just tell you go to your favourite book store on 13th September and buy the book and find out for yourself.
