The Renegade Hunter by Lynsay Sands

Vampires are not a problem for humans- unless they go rogue and kill humans. Hunters take rogues out, and that was Nicholas' job until he went rogue himself. Now he is on the run, but when he sees a girl being attacked by another rogue he steps in to save her. Jo falls for her beautiful savior, but he is in jail with a death sentence now that the authorities have caught him. Can Jo prove that he didn't commit the murder that earned him rogue status? or will the man she loves die?

I am not even going to start on the love at first sight bit, or Nicholas' mental abilities ripped straight from Twilight.

(Seriously, they are almost identical, right down to the bit where the love interest is the only girl in the world Mr. Handsome Vamp can't read the mind of.) Let's just stick with the dreadful, dragging writing and characters made out of tissue paper. Stiff dialogue and poor descriptions only added to this books problems. Then there is that issue of a book needing a plot... something the author appears to rather struggle with, considering the tendency to wander off into some unknown place where plots apparently don't exist.

If you are looking for something mind-numbing that you can half read while doing something else, or just for a laugh (or cry) at the drivel that can get published this book is a fine read.
