Gwen Harris might still be friends with her ex, Roger, but he was still trying to protect her, giving her business advice. Roger's meddling included steering two new clients to her event planning company. Christian St. John and Sebastian Ashford were sexy enticing men…and to Gwen's disbelief, they were vampires. Christian and Sebastian are vampires that are living under a 400-year old curse and need to find their one true love to break it. They believe Gwendolyn is the one. The curse is slowly killing them, for real this time. Now, they just have to convince her before the curse is fulfilled.

I liked the character of Gwen Harris. Meeting two handsome, exciting men is great but not something she has been seeking in her life. She is a competent businesswoman with a company on the verge of success, so the decisions relating to her men are really difficult. I like that she isn't the lonely woman looking for a savior as in so many other books. The complications of the curse and its caster, aggravated by her ex, really challenge her. Sebastian and Christian are desperate to survive but more honorable than most fictional vampires and it is an interesting situation. The business the men are opening is a fetish club called Eternity. Instead of Gwen being turned off, she is interested despite what it could do to her business reputation. She's not shy at all when it comes to her fantasies, even when they turn towards the possibility of ménage encounters with vampires.

“Twice Bitten Not Shy” is the first book in Ms. St. James' new series, “Vampires of Eternity.” The book is well plotted with plenty of interesting characters and room to expand it into a great series. I enjoyed the complications and how they were solved. I wish the book had gone on a little longer to get more into the feelings of the trio but I enjoyed it enough to be waiting for the sequels. I think you'll like this one.
