Dead to the World, by Charlaine Harris

Sequel to Club Dead

This series is about a small town waitress named Sookie Stackhouse who has the ability to read minds. She used to date the towns resident vampire Bill until the last book, where Sookie found out about Bill's infidelity.

Newly single again and still trying to get over Bill. Bill announces he is leaving for Peru to meet with some other vamps to due research for his project. He's not a main character in this installment. Sookie is a little relieved to have him gone for a while, thinking it might ease her pain. You know, out of site out of mind.

Driving home one night Sookie sees Eric on the side of the road wandering aimlessly. He is naked and scared and vulnerable. Complete opposite of the Eric she knows. The cocky owner of the vampire bar, and Area Sheriff of the Vamps. It turns out some witches put a spell on Eric, erasing his memory. He doesn't know who he is or even who Sookie is. Sookie takes him in and hides him. He can stay in the hidey hole that Bill built for himself under the floor in the spare bedroom closet.

Her Brother, Jason stops in and discovers Eric is living in Sookie's house. The next day he goes missing and Sookie is frantic with worry. She turns to the supernatural community for help and clues. She discovers the witches have a reward out for Eric. The werewolves, vampires and witches have an all out war that will have you greedily devouring every page.

Sookie and Eric wind up having an affair to never forget! This one boarders on erotica, but with a plot that is fantastic and memorable. I loved this book, and it is my favorite out of this series thus far.
