    Too short to be really interesting. It's saving grace was it is funny. I suspect it's part of a series.

    Another 'sizzling' and full of action - (this time sword play) - Vampire Assassin novella!

    WE KILL FOR PROFIT NO QUESTIONS ASKED THE CAVALIER Vampire Jean-Pierre de Margolis is a romantic. Lonely. His free time spent wandering the earth in search of the one thing he craves and cannot locate: His mate - the person that will make him whole. Nothing else about this afterlife appeals to a man of his talents. Amid penning poems to his missing love, he prowls the nights, honing his abilities as a master swordsman and a deadly duelist. If only he could find her… THE NINJA Takaiya isn’t just talented, she’s deadly. As an honored member of a hidden warrior clan, she’s spent two decades honing her abilities and perfecting her skill in the ancient arts. No one would ever guess the innocent-looking translator attached to the Japanese Embassy has a secret side – one that deals death. And that’s exactly as she likes it… THE DUEL When the Vampire Assassin League gifts Jean-Pierre with a perfect Samurai sword, one of the few known as a ‘five-body’ blade, nobody realizes they’ve trafficked in stolen goods. That is - not until Takaiya is given the mission of retrieval of the sword – at whatever cost. An easy task until she finds the sword in the hands of a Frenchman with a penchant for swordplay and a flare for the melodramatic. Now, if he’d just die... EXCERPT Jean-Pierre put a hand to his forehead in a dramatic fashion. “I am in love!” he announced. “You’re always in love. What else is new?” “This time is different! I swear.” “Right. Go on. And remember, I have a conference call coming in. A very large offer I cannot possibly refuse.” “I found her, Akron.” “Who?” “My mate.” There was a heavy sigh, loud enough to echo, as though the man used a microphone. “Again?” “Non. You do not understand! This time it’s different!” “And so, you decide to ruin what looks like an expensive, albeit archaic, ensemble by swimming in sewage?” “Non. This is her fault.” “She likes to go swimming?” Jean-Pierre shook his head. “You want to toss me a line with this bait?” Akron asked. “She got my sword.” “Your 4.8 million Euro sword? The one-of-a-kind sword you picked out and had us bid for?” “Oui. That one.” “Fine. You love her so much you gave her your new sword. Invaris is going to have your ass. He spent weeks pursuing that.” “I didn’t give it to her. She claims it was stolen from her clan. She wanted it back.” “Very well, then. You let her waltz off with a 4.8 million Euro sword and then you went swimming. Got it. Anything else?” “I did not allow her to waltz, or anything approaching a dance. She cheated.” “Well…you just can’t trust a woman. How many times have I said that?” “I need your help, Akron. Please? I am desperate here.” “That’s why I’m still listening.” “I need help finding her.” “I thought you just said you found her.” “I did! And it’s wondrous!” “You know, Margolis, I’ve been told finding your true mate is a wonderful thing. I have to go by what I’m told, unfortunately. I am not that lucky. But I have to state the obvious. You don’t look to be experiencing much wonder at the moment.” “You are no help! I should have found a drunken sot and drowned my sorrows in his blood. That would be better than this!” “I can’t help you if you don’t tell me what you need. Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? I’ll need specifics. What’s her name?” The scraping sound of a chair being moved and then the creak as it got used came from the shadowy recess. Margolis stared at the unlit fireplace as if it had answers. “I do not know,” he finally replied. “Hair color?” “I would say…it is dark.” “Would say?” “Oui.” “Okay. Eye color?” “Dark, as well. I think.” “Size? Build?” “Oh. Of that I am certain. She is of perhaps…five feet, five. Approximately 120 lbs. Athletic build. Very athletic.” “Heritage?” “I would say…Asian. But again, I am not sure.” “Do you know what she looks like, or not?” “No.” “It’s not the voice at the other end of the all-night drive-through again, is it?”

    The Assassin and the NinjaFlamboyant assassin Jean - Pierre was just finishing his assignment when he meets his lifemate (she's trying to kill him and not with kindness). Takaiya was on a mission: to return the samurai sword to her clan. Instead she meets a fruitcake dressed like a drag queen.Takaiya tricks the sword away from Jean - Pierre. He is intrigued by her and is determined to find her. They meet up again at a party (he cleans up nicely). Can Jean - Pierre convince Takaiya that they belong together or will she disappear forever?@

    i thought this book was cute... but i hated the ending.. it was rushed and just didnt make sense how they fell in love... considering they just met and she has had a troublesome life then bam she is like i love you baby? it just didnt go with how the story was going and then bam! it was over... yeah. to be honest it really bugs me because every book i read in the series is the same. it gets so good then it gets rushed and doesnt make any sense then ends... this author just doesnt know how to end a book properly.

    This book is charming. I laughed out loud several times at the antics of vampire JP and his Ninja assasin lover. This book is very short but enjoyable. Amazon was offering it for free this past weekend and I didn't realize it was part of a series until now. I think it would be even better with the backstory you gain by reading previous books in the series. If you are looking for something short and satisfying this is it.

    What a hopeless Romantic J.P. seems to be. He's constantly writing and reciting what he believes ti be Love, only to find out how very wrong he is. But boy is he knocked on his @#$ when his mate becomes his opponent. Now he learns the true meaning of what real Love is! ;)This is another fast paced, entertaining story of another Vampire Assassin finding his True Mate. Very funny series. I look forward to more. :)

    Love, love, love, This Arthur. I have read ALL of her V.A.L. books. I just can't get enough of the series ( & covers). plus if you join her Facebook reading group. (Street Assassin's) she sends you SWAG .! She takes the time to talk via email to her readers, especially if you are in her assassin's group.

    Another in the Vampire Assassin series, this was a readable short story. I do not think it was stellar. The constraints of the short length mean that the plot is rushed and I see the potential for much larger stories in this author's work. It is worth reading, but has the issues you get with such pieces.

    Entertaining story!Once again this author has written a good entertaining story. My only complaint is that it ended to soon! I really wish this story and the rest of the series were full length novels! Loveable vampire assassin's!

    J.P. the male lead is arrogant butt hat. The female was equally forgettable. The dialogue between the two was horrific. Just not a good read in my opinion

    For some reason this particular book didn't appeal to me as the others I have read in this series. I was never able to get a good feel for JP, which made the book mediocre.

    An very interesting short story about a vampire search for his perfect mate only to find his mate is an assassin as well. Action, romance, laughs and a really good story line.
