Fantasy Romance, Urban Fantasy
Real vampires don't rust, bust, collect dust…or sparkle in the sunshine, but that shouldn't keep them from sporting a healthy glow!
Midnight Sun Tanning Salon owner, Tom Thornton, is everything a girl could want in a vampire--tall, dark, handsome, with a body built for sin, plus cowboy boots and a Texas drawl. Toss in paid vacations and a benefits package and he is the perfect employer. His short, adorable and flamboyantly gay sidekick, Raf, looks like Tony Curtis--channeling Richard Simmons!
Connie Bennett is drawn to both--for very different reasons.
Everything she thought she knew about vampires, herself and life in general is about to go pear-shaped…but then, no relationship is perfect!

MIDNIGHT SUN, INC. by Debbie Vaughn is a fun read that will keep you fascinated. I give it three stars for its compelling plotline and hope this is only the first book in a series.
MIDNIGHT SUN, INC. tells the tale of how human Connie Bennett and her boss, vampire Tom Thornton, fell in love. The book is set in a world where vampires have come out of the coffin, and legislation and commerce cater to vampires as well as humans. Tom Thornton owns Midnight Sun, a tanning salon that caters to "all persuasions." The night manager, Rafael, is also a vampire, or is he? Connie becomes housemates with Rafael, who it turns out also lives with Tom.
As Connie gets to know Rafael and begins a romantic relationship with Tom, the three of them have to deal with strange events, a dead body in the salon's dumpster, spells on the tanning salon, revelations about Rafael's life, and Connie's odd health issues.
I enjoyed MIDNIGHT SUN, INC. The plotline is interesting and keeps you wondering what could happen next. The narration and dialogue are filled with humor and wit. I found myself laughing out loud several times.
A few issues detracted from my enjoyment of the book. I would have liked the pacing to be better. It seemed a bit off, as there was too much time spent on transitional and background scenes, and too little on the major plot and climactic scenes. The same applies to the development of the romantic relationship between Connie and Tom. That part of the plotline was a bit unbelievable and needed some extra attention.
The book also needed another round of editing. The typo and grammatical errors were distracting, and at times the storyline was a tad confusing. These issues can be overlooked, though, because the paranormal aspects of the book were so interesting.
Given the adult content, this book has a heat level rating of 3, appropriate for those 18 years of age and over.
MIDNIGHT SUN, INC is a fun read, and I highly recommend this book to all who enjoy the paranormal genre.
