LUST FOR LIFE
Smith-Ready’s final WVMP Vampire Radio book brings this addictive series to a thrilling close. The eclectic mix of music, OCD and vampires has given this terrific series a truly unusual edge. Former con woman Ciara Griffin has remained a compelling character whose skills have been put to the test.
Once faced with a deadly disease, Ciara had no choice but to allow herself to be turned into a vampire. But her troubles don’t end there — Jim, a vampire DJ working at her radio station, WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll, nearly kills Ciara before he’s taken into custody. In order to make sure he can protect Ciara in the future, Shane McAllister, Ciara’s vampire fiancé, has been undergoing combat training. But they’re both going to need all the preparation and protection they can get since Jim’s legion of progeny are out for revenge. Can they stop the attacks, keep WVMP going and plan a wedding?
