Vampires Never Cry Wolf

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.

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…

Sadie forced herself to look Killian in the face, and the instant she did, she knew it was a colossal mistake. His eyes looked like pools of liquid gold, and she could swear he saw straight through to her very soul. A growl rumbled in his chest and Sadie gasped. His eyes flickered and shifted into the glowing amber eyes of his wolf. The sudden and instinctive change was a glaring reminder of who he was…who they both were.


In a remarkably steady voice, Sadie whispered, “Last night should never have happened.”


“The only thing about last night that shouldn’t have happened was the way it ended,” Killian rasped.


Sadie stilled when his large hand cradled her cheek. Despite her best efforts to resist him, her body quivered uncontrollably as he surrounded her in every way a person could be surrounded. When the heat of his palm seared against her skin, a needy moan escaped her lips. Desire curled inside her like smoke, and regardless of the litany of warnings that ran through her head, Sadie’s hands found their way to the front of Killian’s shirt. She grasped the fabric, still warm from the heat of his body, and pulled him closer. Sweet Jesus, the man had a body that looked like it had been hand carved by the gods themselves.


“Is that so?” Sadie pulled his shirt loose from his jeans and slipped her fingers underneath before trailing them along the hard planes of his stomach. Arching one eyebrow, she held his heavy-lidded gaze. “How do you suppose it should have ended?”


“The same way it should end every night from now on,” he growled. Killian slid both hands into her long hair. Sadie shivered when his fingertips grazed her scalp. He pressed his hips against her before slipping his thigh between her legs. Sadie gasped with pleasure as he put pressure on just the right spot, and when a moan escaped her parted lips, a cocky grin emerged on his. Killian tightened his grip on her hair and leaned in so his mouth was just a breath away. “Every single night should end with me buried deep inside you.”
