Description

A fun, action-packed "Vamps and the City" type romance with:
A second chance at first loveA tender-hearted vampire who cares about dogs, cats & peopleA cop who can't stop dreaming about a woman he's sure he's never metThe last person Olivia expected to turn up at her nightclub 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...
Doug is a no-nonsense cop by day, but his nights are tormented by dark 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 in the heart of the city of the dead, long-buried memories begin to surface. She might be the answer to his prayers...or she might be the death of him.

Our customer reviews

4.5 Stars Tall, Dark, and Vampire has a storyline so well written you will just breathe in every word as you anxiously turn the pages waiting to see where it will take you next. Olivia Hollingsworth loved her life and her fianc�© with all her heart and soul. Neither she or her fianc�© Douglas Threadgood had any idea the night they snuck off into the wood their lives would be changed forever. In one instant violent moment the man she swore to love for all eternity was dead and she should have been next, instead the very monster responsible had taken her and turned her into vampire. Doug Paxton is a New York City Detective sworn to protect and serve, he knows this is what he was born to do. Doug always found although he was great at his job the same could not be said about his personal life. He had been having dreams of a woman most of his life and it seemed although he could commit in his dreams real life was a different matter. Olivia has lived a quite life since breaking ties with her maker at the end of her service. She now owns and runs a night club called The Coven and keeps only those she has sired or trusts around her. On a call out to a brutal crime Doug and his Partner Tom receive information that leads them to The Coven a local club the man attended. When Doug comes face to face with the club's owner he is less than prepared for what he finds, but he is sure this is only the start of these gruesome attacks and Olivia and her club are somehow involved. Doug and Olivia will need to pool their recourses' and knowledge to get ahead of the murders that are occurring if they are to save the people of New York and Doug will need to accept that not all is as it seems if he is to save Olivia from what she is about to endure. I look forward to reading many more of Sara Humphreys' books and would recommend if you love paranormal or vampire romance you pick up Tall, Dark, and Vampire you won't be disappointed!!
