 Terri had flown from England to help plan her cousin's wedding, but paying for a New York hotel room was like giving blood! She had an alternative: the new in-laws were offering lodging.Of course, the Argeneaus were a certifiably odd bunch. There was the sometimes chipper, sometimes brooding Lucern—a "vampire romance" writer. There was the wacky stage actor, Vincent. She couldn't imagine Broadway casting a more ravenous singing-and-dancing Dracula. And then there was Bastien. Of this unique cast of characters, he seemed the tallest, darkest and hungriest—and his effect on Terri was decidedly delicious. Just looking into his eyes made her want to serve up her innocence on a silver platter. And she had a feeling the love feast was about to begin  AMAZON

I was somewhat disappointed in Bastien's story.  It was one I was looking forward to reading since I started reading the series.  While it was sweet, it felt somewhat tame and almost more about the other members of the family than it was about him and Terri.  Don't get me wrong, I like the whole odd ball unique family, but it just felt like it was missing something.  

The wedding planning mishaps were funny and the mishaps just kept coming.  Things really did keep Bastien and Terri busy trying to fix them and they did work well together.  The ones getting married, Kate and Lucern were precious little help since they were handling their own crises. They were so crazy in love that they had eyes for each other only, which added to the troubles.  One of those troubles was a man named, C.K.  He wasn't evil, but if there was an accident about to happen, he was usually in the  middle of it.  Kate works with him and when he had an accident, he just HAD to help him out; which made it Bastien's problem as well.   You'll have to read the book to see how that came about.  Just let me say that C.K.'s mishaps go with the wedding planning mishaps, so there is some humor as well.  Even in the middle of all of this, Bastien does find some time to show Terri around town. And eventually his bedroom, to mention one place.
