Amanda gives an overview of the book:

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR…  Only a woman with nothing left to lose knocks on a vampire’s door and asks for help. Shannah Davis is convinced that the mysterious dark-haired man she’s followed for months can save her life—if he doesn’t kill her first.

After centuries of existence, Ronan has done the unthinkable. He has fallen in love with a mortal—and one with only weeks to live. Sensing the fear and reluctance beneath Shannah’s request, he offers her a different bargain that will keep her near him during the time she has left.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR…

 Only a woman with nothing left to lose knocks on a vampire’s door and asks for help. Shannah Davis is convinced that the mysterious dark-haired man she’s followed for months can save her life—if he doesn’t kill her first. But though Ronan insists he can’t give her what she needs, his kiss unleashes a primal hunger that makes her feel truly alive for the first time.

After centuries of existence, Ronan has done the unthinkable. He has fallen in love with a mortal—and one with only weeks to live. Sensing the fear and reluctance beneath Shannah’s request, he offers her a different bargain that will keep her near him during the time she has left. Every hour spent together leaves him craving her touch, her scent, her life’s essence. Soon, only Shannah can satisfy his thirst. But if he saves her from death, will she love him for it—or spend eternity regretting what she has become? 

Publishers Weekly said: Dead Perfect by Amanda Ashley (Zebra): "When Shannah, dying of an obscure, incurable disease, passes out on the stoop of Ronan, who is a vampire, two birds are killed with one stone: Ronan moonlights as a romance author and needs a woman to pretend to be him on tours (especially during the daylight hours); Shannah needs Ronan’s blood to stay alive. As he coaches her to impersonate him and feeds her, Ronan falls more and more in love. And with each passing day, Shannah’s body grows weaker, but she resists being turned into a vampire because she doesn’t want to lose her humanity entirely. It’s the age-old vampire-human dilemma, given a clever and funny turn by Night’s Touch author Ashley."

Gina of Loves Romances and More said:

If you are looking for a read that combines romance, paranormal, compassion and just plain fun, DEAD PERFECT is…perfect.

He didn’t say anything, just stepped into the room, kicked the door closed with his heel, drew her into his arms, and kissed her.           

As always, she melted into him, her every thought, her every desire focused on Ronan, only Ronan.  Desire flowed through her, warm and honey-sweet.  Maybe tonight, she thought, maybe tonight he would carry her to bed and make love to her.  She knew he wanted her.  She could taste it in his kiss, feel it in the way his body quivered against hers.     

 She was breathless when he broke the kiss.           

 “I’ve been wanting to do that for hours,” he said, his voice husky.  “I keep telling myself that you’re far too young for me, that I’ll bring you nothing but misery, but I can’t leave you alone.”  He ran his knuckles lightly over her cheek.  “I can’t stay away.”
