Book 3 of Dead in the City
Vampires are nothing but trouble…
As far as beautiful vampire Sadie Pemberton is concerned, werewolves shouldn’t be sticking their noses into New York’s supernatural politics. They don’t know jack about running a city—not even that hot-as-sin new vampire-werewolf liaison who’s just arrived in town.
Werewolves are too sexy for their own good…
The last thing Killian Bane wanted was to end up in New York City playing nice with vampires. Unfortunately, he’s on a mission, and when he encounters the sexiest, most stubborn female vamp he’s ever met, he’s going to have to turn on a little of that wolfish charm…and Sadie’s going to learn a thing or two about what it means to have a wild side…

perfect addition to my paranormal collection of “read more than once” titles, and a great story in
My first introduction to this series and I’m wondering just how I missed it. What great fun, with supernatural creatures and some smexy moments, Sara Humphreys brought so many elements together in Vampires Never Cry Wolf, and did so with humor.
Sadie Pemberton owns the hottest nightclub in the city, The Coven, which also happens to be welcoming to all supernatural creatures. Killian Bane is heir to the werewolf kingdom, and has plans of opening his own club, The Coven is a great place for tips of the trade.
There’s just one problem: Sadie is a vampire and Killian is a werewolf. These two are genetically programmed to hate on sight. They’ll never trust or be loyal to one another, even though we know vamps have issues with that and weres are like two year olds with their toys, they don’t share.
But, Killian can’t stay away from Sadie, no matter how he tries, and he doesn’t understand it until she is skinny dipping in his pool, and he spots the mark on her shoulder. The mark he has dreamed of, that belongs to his fated mate. And it’s on her shoulder. Let the hijinks begin!
Not a romance made in heaven, but an odd twist of fate. Sadie won’t accept the entitled playboy who wants to hurt her business with his own club, and is royalty at that. While she had an inkling that he would be important to her, she isn’t ready or willing to open herself up to possibly destroying the fragile truce between their species for what is certain to be a doomed relationship. Killian is too confused – fate would have no reason to make something that should be so straightforward and easy for him this difficult. A vampire as his fated mate? Poor thing really needed a cookie and some quiet moments after that revelation sunk in.
You cannot, however, deny an attraction that is so magnetic, and fate wins after a hard-won series of battles as they learn to trust and believe in one another. Of course, they both acted on the attraction, why shouldn’t they? It was all part of figuring everything out.
Intermingled with the battle of wills (really, could there be two more stubborn creatures in close proximity?) is a series of wonderful secondary characters all waiting for more face time, serious laugh-out-loud humor, dialogue that could be overheard in a coffee shop (if you were that lucky) and a touch of intrigue to add some twists and turns that could cause major disruption.
I now am obligated to grab the first two books in this series – it’s a perfect addition to my paranormal collection of “read more than once” titles, and a great story in the series.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility
