Aloha to Sara Humphreys and VAMPIRE TROUBLE


Sara Humphreys had no trouble motivating romance readers to join her for early morning exercise during the RT Booklovers' Convention - the dedicated group met atop the Marriott Hotel for T25 workout.  They seemed to have an extra spring in their steps during the convention.

Sara made exercise look so easy ... and reading vampires is also easy with her Dead in the City Series.   Sara is getting ready for the launch of Book 2, VAMPIRE TROUBLE, available July 1 from Sourcebooks Casablanca:

A fledgling vampire ignites a war...

Maya remembers the last moments of her life as a human with haunting clarity, and every man she meets pays the price...until Shane. Finding herself in the middle of a bloody fight between vampires and werewolves, Maya has no choice but to let the devastatingly sexy vampire guard get close to her.

And that's not all that heats up...

Shane Quesada, a four-century-old vampire sentry, is known for his cold, unemotional precision, but once Maya begins to invade his dreams, his world is changed forever. His job to protect her is swiftly replaced by the all-consuming need to claim her as his own.

Praise for Tall, Dark, and Vampire:
