"Special Task Force agent Derek Atkinson has a craving for luscious vampire Sable Taylor. But Sable is a bounty hunter, which makes him direct competition in the capture of wanted criminals. Despite the obvious attraction between them, she won't give him a chance and after two years, he's tired of waiting for her to come around. So he's got a plan to give them both what they want...each other."

Disclaimer: Misled is extremely mature and not suitable for under 18s.

Misled is definitely different. I mean it's about vampires in space. Not something you read every day anyway. I liked that it was a very quick and easy read too - something I've been needing lately.

The setting felt quite futuristic, slightly "Star Wars-like" in a way (I really don't know what else to compare it too...). The setting is definitely unusual for vampires too.

The characters, Sable and Derek, are definitely likeable, however, the book is so short that I didn't really feel like I got to know them at all. Probably didn't help that there was more sex than actual plot/character development. And the characters jump into bed far too early too (and never stop!). However, the story is told from the alternating perspectives of Sable and Derek so this did help the characterisation a bit.

As I've said, there's really not much to the plot, however, in some way the plot was actually quite quick in a way. I admit I was a bit confused at times because of the plot twists (when there was a plot), but everything ties up in the end. Though the ending wasn't the most climatic.

I did enjoy Misled, but I wish there was a bit more to the plot and characterisation. It's definitely a book for over 18s only and those who like very mature and explicit reads. I'm definitely good to look into reading more by Sylvia Day.
