|Monique de la Chauve-Souris has been the Comte du Montnoir's lover for two weeks. Both vampires, the Comte for centuries, they have had extremely erotic sex during their time together. The Comte finds himself in love for the first time and asks Monique to be his life partner. Monique, surprised by his request, blurts out her lifelong plan to destroy the Comte. When she was a child of eight in Paris, Monique was poor, starving and taking care of her baby sister Josette. The Comte was running charity hospitals and when Monique took Josette there for care, they were turned away and Josette died. Ever since, Monique has been planning his downfall. Her plan is almost complete, and the Comte-horrified-summons his four young vampires from America to help him defeat Monique.
Young Vampires In France is the sequel to Young Vampires In Love and reading it first would make the beginning of Young Vampires In France. However, once I was in the flow of the book, I was able to continue with little trouble. Monique and the Comte were fascinating, well-written characters who did not know each other at all, even though their sexual encounters were tremendously arousing. I loved reading and enjoying their sex along with them. There were a multitude of secondary characters who were very important to the plot and in many cases provided comic relief. Since this book contains some mild bondage, it might not be to the taste of everyone. I enjoyed reading the book a great deal, particularly the second half. The mood swung from anger and despair to joy and love. I am eager to read the first book and even a sequel, if there should be one.
