"delightful paranormal romance"
Vampires are either born or made and Lil Marchette belongs
to the upper social class that was born. That means her
eternity mate has to be a born vampire with a high
fertility rating in order to have children. Made vampires
can't have children which leaves bounty hunter Ty Bonner
off Lil's list as prospective mates if she was searching
which she is not.
She is interested in getting her matchmaking business Dead
End Dating, which services vampires, humans and anything in
between off the ground. She meets the oldest, vampire in
her father's Kinko like store and if she can get the shy
vamp fixed up with his eternity mate, she will make a good
start in making her business the place to go. She also
wants to fix up a snobby wealthy boring born vampire with
someone who cares about him. This will keep her occupied
because she thinks too much of Ty, a bounty hunter made
vampire who is chasing after a serial killer, even though a
relationship between them is definitely taboo.
Readers who like paranormal romances will want to read DEAD
END DATING. The sparks that fly between Lil and Ty are so
hot it feels as if the book will spontaneously combust. The
heroine marches to her own drummer and doesn't always

Romance was in her blood...
BITING IS SO LAST SEASON.
A vivacious vampire with a flair for accessorizing, Lil Marchette is unlike most of her kind. She prefers lively shades of pink to dismal black (soo not her color), plus she's a hopeless romantic. In need of a steady paycheck to support a compulsive cosmetics habit, Lil starts Dead End Dating (DED), a Manhattan-based matchmaking service that helps smart, sophisticated singles like herself find eternity mates - and may even help her stake a claim to her very own Count Right!
When Lil meets geeky vampire Francis Deville, she knows he's the perfect first client. If she can hook up Francis - after a little revamping, of course - she will prove her skills to the vampire community and turn DED into the hottest dating service in the Big Apple. But just as her business takes off, Lil meets the (literally) drop-dead gorgeous bounty hunter Ty Bonner, who is hot on the chase of a serial killer. Instantly drawn to the luscious vamp stud, Lil really wants a taste. But as a made vampire, Ty can't procreate - and Lil will settle for nothing less. Luckily, between “vampifying” Francis and helping Ty solve his murder mystery, Lil has no time for silly romantic entanglements . . . even if Ty is all that and a Bloody Mary chaser!
