Vampire in Paradise

Sandra Hill. Avon, $7.99 mass market (352p) ISBN 978-0-06-221048-7

Fans of Hill’s Vangels (Viking vampire angels, last seen in Kiss of Wrath) will be delighted to follow them on vacation to the Florida Keys. Hill demotes centuries-old Vangel Sigurd Sigurdsson from respectable research oncologist at Johns Hopkins to a resort physician and sends him to play doctor at a porn convention that is being infiltrated by demon Luci­pires. Marisa Lopez is working on the island as a waitress and massage therapist, hoping to build her savings so that she can pay for surgery to save her daughter’s life. She’s contemplating prostitution,but Sig is just the Vangel to seduce the sin out of her. Sig must also defeat the Lucipires, who are harvesting the wealth of sinners at the convention. The sunny setting, goofy side characters, and hints about how future Vangels may meet their mates makes Sig and Marisa’s story worth toting in a carry-on bag. (Nov.)
