Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this contemporary vampire romance. I thought the characters worked well together and I would recommend this novel. Morgan DeSilva is a struggling screenwriter, who cannot seem to get any of her work off the ground. Her family used to be very wealthy but with her parents' death she found out that she no longer has any money. She must learn to support herself. Morgan moves into an old house in Maine owned by a friend, and is trying to write, but is running into a brick wall. Then she discovers a manuscript that she just falls in love with. It is a story about a vampire. Morgan decides to use this work. Dante is a vampire on the run. He is being hunted, and while running ends up at one of his hideaways which is beneath the house he used to own. He discovers Morgan, and is oddly attracted to her, but at the same time furious because she is publishing his private diaries. I enjoyed this novel and would recommend.

TWILIGHT HUNGER is an interesting story, but the author's habitual use of one particular phrase drove me to distraction.
God, I hate it when she does that. God, I wish she'd stop. God, what's going on here? It seemed like in every paragraph she had a "God, ...." phrase. On some pages, it literally *is* every paragraph, at least once. If you took out all of those "God," and just capitalized the first letter in the word after the comma, it would work just fine. Apparently every single character in her book thinks or talks like that, from the very old gypsy vampiress to the young private investigator chick. Highly, highly annoying.
Obviously, the phrasing made an impression upon me. It was bad enough that I read the end of the book to see if I really wanted to plod through that annoyance. I did finish the book eventually, but the book is easy to put down and quite predictable. I'm not impressed with this woman's writing style, but I may give her another chance because reviews seem to indicate her other books were better.

I have read all of Maggie Shayne's Twilight books and this one was by far the best! If you haven't read any of Maggie Shayne's books you are missing out on absolutely stunning books.

All I can say is that I wish I had read these reviews before I bought, much less read Twilight Hunger! I've always been a fan of Maggie Shayne's vampire romance novels and was looking forward to the continuing series. However, this book had no romance whatsover and the main characters were really undeveloped and what we did learn about them wasn't likeable. Morgan's obsession with Dante such that she couldn't even leave the house and her wanting to wallow in her dreams to be near this "madman" who believed he was vampire, but who she was in love with, was just too much. And I'm still trying to get over the "flashback" scene of Dante having such violent sex with a mortal tavern maid that he kills her. All I could think was that based on the description of her injuries (neck ripped open so that her windpipe was visible), the poor woman was dead long before Dante "finished." I've never been into necrophilia, so that was a complete turnoff. From that point on, because I just have to finish the book to see if it could get any worse (it didn't, but it didn't get any better either), I just skimmed the rest to see how it would end.
And another thing, I never understand why Shayne's vampires are so weak. Her vampire lore seems to say that all you have to do is stick one to make them bleed, and then wait for them to bleed to death. Dante seemed about to meet that fate on 3 or 4 occasions! If it's that easy to kill a vampire, what's the big deal about being one.
Anyway, if you want a good romantic vampire story, try Maggie Shayne's earlier books in the series, and skip this one!

Maggie Shayne is probably the only writer that can keep me entertained from beginning to end, but after reading her books "Eternity" and "Infinity", I must say that I was rather disappointed with my first venture into the vampire series, as opposed to the phenomenal witch series. And while I do admit that the prologue to "Twilight Hunger", which features a lavish vampiress dancing around a demon bonfire while seducing her soon-to-be companion with her dark, mysterious gypsy eyes, is a griping opener at that, soon after "Twilight Hunger" becomes somewhat stagnant with rushed writing and a corny direction in the plot line. The sex scenes are definitely more erotic and the gore is more intense than in previous books by Maggie Shayne, but the characters here have no real depth, nor do they have any personality. I do love the parts when Morgan is reading from Dante's journal, which details how his beautiful yet malicious aunt Sarafina transforms him into a creature of everlasting hunger, but other than that (and some sweltering lust scenes) I would much rather recommend the aforementioned witch books, including "Destiny" and the short story "Immortal", which can be found in J.D. Robb's "Out Of This World".

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Morgan de Silva, poor little once-rich girl, has slunk away to the run-down old mansion belonging to a family friend to try to pull her life together. Her dream is to make it as a scriptwriter, and she even has a fast-track route to success if she can produce a script, except she's no good at it. After six months, her screen is still blank... until she stumbles on a set of journals, written by a man called Dante, who lived 150 years ago and believed that he was a vampire. Reading the journals, Morgan finds herself transported into Dante's mind, and his life plays out for her in her head... and also on her computer screen. Five years later, she's written three vampire movies, all about Dante's life and based on the journals of what she assumes was a long-dead fantasist.
Meanwhile, in White Plains, Maxine Stuart, a conspiracy theorist, stumbled on the secrets of DPI the night their headquarters was destroyed (this book is a sequel to Shayne's earlier Born in Twilight). After a vampire strikes, killing a woman, Maxine makes the connection between a vampire called Dante whose details are on a CD-Rom she stole and the Dante of Morgan de Silva's films. She and her close friend Lou, a police officer, realise that they need to speak to Morgan, and set off to find her, not realising that they're already one step behind a rogue DPI agent, Frank Stiles.
Meanwhile, Dante is alive and well, and he's after Morgan to find out how she found out his secrets and why she betrayed him. Instead, though, he finds himself drawn to her - she is, after all, one of the Chosen, and she's dying...
Like other reviewers, I didn't enjoy this book as much as others in Shayne's series.
