David is a vampire that loves the books Charlotte Allen writes. He manipulates a situation that ends up with Charlotte buying his acreage to build a house. Charlotte is looking forward to picking up the pieces after her divorce and, though she is lusting after David, thinks he is too young for her.

Stay With Me is a very different type of vampire story, in more ways than one. The author weaves a wonderful love story that gives you a very real life man that happens to be a vampire who actually knew Bram Stocker. I loved this little tidbit as well as a few others thrown in. Parts of this story are quite humorous.

Their relationship and the sex between David and Charlotte are sizzling. The relationship they develop could be anyone’s story, as both try to overcome prejudices, insecurities and ex’s. The relationship that Charlotte eventually has with her ex is real life. Things don’t go quite so smoothly with one of David’s “donors”. I thought the author handled the ending very well, though at first you are left wondering if things would, indeed, work out. For those that like vampire stories, this is one to have on the bookshelf to be read again.
