"a great addition to the Fangly, My Dear series"

Vampire guards had the night shift at San Quentin. Go figure. Even the thought of vampire guards made Tanith wet. She was obsessed with vampires. Wanted one, or was sure she thought she did. Being a cop didn't help, she got three or four offers daily, but passed on them all. Not what she wanted, not what she needed. She finds a card from an escort service: Fangly, My Dear. Date a shifter, ghoul or vampire. After a bit she decides to give them a call. After all, once done her obsession would probably go away - wouldn't it?

Gabe awakens after a prison attack in a vampire half-way house. He doesn't remember anything after the shooting but one of the vampire guards saved him by turning him. Ironically, Tanith's best friend's husband died that night. They were investigating police corruption. After becoming familiar with his new-found nature, Gabe is in need of sex. Lots and lots of it. He signs up with Fangly, My Dear and his first date is Tanith.

Tanith is determined to never see Gabe again. Then she learns he was present at Sue's husband's death. Was he the killer? Can she stand firm on her No More Vampires theme? And who is that nice looking old lady?

A good short novel, I truly enjoyed it.

In a battle of wills, only one can be on top. Right?

A Fangly My Dear book.

After an investigation goes horribly wrong, former journalist and brand-new vampire Gabe Morrow, wants to get a life. A social life, that is.

Fresh from the vampire halfway house, he's ecstatic�and a little wary�when Fangly, My Dear fixes him up with San Francisco cop Tanith Kalinski. Although his last investigation had him tracking corrupt cops, one night with this detective blows him away.

Vampires have always both repelled and fascinated Tanith. She figures one date�one long, passionate night of hot sex�will finally get the creatures out of her system. Then she meets Gabe. Their instantaneous attraction is so intense that instead of curing her of her obsession, their one night together makes it stronger than ever.

What's worse, Gabe wants more than she's willing to offer. With his murderer still on the loose, keeping Gabe at arm's length risks more than her heart�it could mean her life.

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Red Hots!
Length: Novella

Warning: This title contains plenty of hot vampire loving.
