Vampire Vixens
by Sara Humphreys

Most of the vampire books I’ve read, especially in the romance genre, were about male vamps and that got me thinking. What about the ladies? What would it be like to have a coven full of vampire chicks here in New York City?

It would be fun, witty, gritty, sexy and smart.

Dead in the City is my take on vampires and the series features a coven of vampire chicks. They are distinctly different women in all ways but one—family comes first. Readers will get to meet the whole bevy of beauties in Tall, Dark, and Vampire when it’s released on August 6th… But here’s a sneak peek at the family.

Olivia Hollingsworth: Head of the coven and maker to the rest. Olivia is a three hundred-year-old celibate vampire with a penchant for Armani suits and hot stilettos. She owns and operates The Coven, a goth nightclub in NYC that’s run out of an old church in Greenwich Village. She and the rest of her vamps work the club by night and live in apartments beneath it by day. With long, curly red hair, fair skin and large green eyes, Olivia is a smart, no nonsense woman. She simply wants to run her nightclub with as little interference as possible from the Presidium—the vampire government. A former sentry and member of the vampire security squad, she is tired of violence and would love nothing more than to have the most successful club in NYC. However, when members of her nightclub start to turn up dead…her plans are irrevocably changed.

Olivia never, in all her three hundred years, thought she’d have her own coven but here she is with exactly that. She only turned the girls because they were dying and as tough as she is…she’s a sucker for hard luck cases. The woman would rescue the whole world if she could. Her latest adopted orphan is her German Shepherd, Van Helsing, and she’s convinced he’s the only one who really listens to her.

Sadie Pemberton: Club DJ. Sadie is Olivia’s best friend, was turned about two hundred years ago and is the most levelheaded of the bunch—aside from Olivia. She’s slim with long chocolate brown hair, dark eyes and a wicked grin. Sadie is a fan of leather and lace, Aerosmith, and still hasn’t decided if she prefers men or women. One of her favorite things to do is tease Olivia about her self-imposed celibacy—a rarity among vampires.

Trixie LaRoux: Bartender and Bad Ass. Trixie was turned by Olivia in the early 1980’s and still sports the bright pink spiked hair, leather studded bracelets and typical punk attired she donned when she was human. She’s brash, swears like a truck driver but shares little about herself. While outwardly the most brazen, in many ways she’s also the most guarded and harbors a secret only Olivia knows.

Maya Robertson: Bartender and Troublemaker. The newest member of the coven, turned only five years ago, Maya is a blonde, blue-eyed bombshell who loves nothing more than to play with the boys. She gives a whole new meaning to the term ‘maneater’. She plays up the flirty blonde bimbo routine to toy with men because it makes her feel in control and powerful. Only Olivia knows just how out of control Maya’s life was before she became a vamp.

I can’t wait to see how readers will embrace my vampire vixens and the men who attempt to claim them, but never tame them.

Dream on…
Sara

Review Tall Dark and Vampire by Sara HumphreysTALL, DARK, AND VAMPIRE BY SARA HUMPHREYS
IN STORES AUGUST 2013

She always knew Fate was cruel…
The last person Olivia expected to turn up at her club was her one true love. It would normally be great to see him, except he’s been dead for centuries. Olivia really thought she had moved on with her immortal life, but as soon as she sees Doug Paxton, she knows she’d rather die than lose him again. And that’s a real problem…

But this is beyond the pale…
Doug is a no-nonsense copy by day, but his nights are tormented by dreams of a gorgeous redhead who’s so much a part of him, she seems to be in his blood. When he meets Olivia face-to-face, long-buried memories begin to surface. She might be the answer to his prayers…or she might be the dead of him.

“Engaging… Humphreys skillfully blends intrigue and romance.” —Publishers Weekly

“Shines with fascinating new characters… Readers will not want to wait for more from the very talented Humphreys!” —RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ Stars, Top Pick of the Month
