"an amusing vampire romance"
Christian Young is a vampire trying to find redemption for
his many sins. In an attempt to find redemption, Christian
moves to Shady Fork Mobile Estate, rations his blood intake
to blood bank rejects, and follows a twelve step program to
become more "human." Christian, still, has trouble making
contact with mortals and considers his blog enough contact.
His solitude is shattered, when he aids Jolee Dugan, whose
brother is drugged out and violent. After this Christian
and Jolee find themselves thrown together quite often. Will
an uptown vampire and a bluecollar human be able to have a
FANGS BUT NO FANGS is an amusing vampire romance with
interesting, quirky characters. Jolee is trying to live
down the bad reputation of her family and better her life.
Jolee is working hard and is suspicious of an obviously
well-off Christian. Christian can't understand his
attraction to a lowly mortal and fights it without success.
Christian's family helps the romance along, and I'm looking
forward to the downfall of Christian's brother in a follow-
up book. Lovers of vampire romance with a humorous tone,
should give FANGS BUT NO FANGS a try.

THERE'S NOTHING UGLIER THAN A VAMPIRE SINGING "FEELINGS"
If I hadn't seen it for myself, I'd swear it couldn't be true: my brother, Christian, living in a trailer park in some backwater town, working at a karaoke bar. We're talking about Christian, the cultured, the refined, the snobby. The guy who'd probably sniff the plasma packets and send 'em back in a huff if the blood type wasn't the right vintage. But after centuries of living in the undead fastlane, he's made up his mind that this is exactly where he needs to spend the rest of eternity, atoning for his many, many, sins. It's a self- imposed purgatory complete with lawn ornaments and blaring country music.
But sometimes things just don't work out like you think they will. Sometimes your hell can turn into your heaven. And thanks to Christian's chatty neighbor and boss, Jolee, things seem to be getting a whole lot nicer in Shady Fork Mobile Estates. Not that either of them has the first idea how to have a normal relationship-we are talking about a woman's who's only dated dead-beats, and a guy who's only dated the dead. Nobody's perfect.
Still, it's a start for Mr. Rebel Vamp Without a Cause. And fortunately he still has me, Rhys Young, and our younger brother, Sebastian, to help him. We plan to show Christian that eveyone deserves a second chance, and winning his beer-slinging, country-singing beauty is a great beginning.
