VAMPS AND THE CITY
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Vampire, Paranormal Romance
Darcy Newhart is unhappy being a vampire, even if she isn't the blood-sucking variety. When she was human, she was a TV journalist. Now she's directing the Digital Vampire Network's first reality program, The Sexiest Man on Earth. Austin Erickson is a member of the CIA's Stake-Out team, a group with psychic powers that hunts vampires. He and his co-worker Garrett
The program's winner acquires the ex-harem of Roman Draganesti (the hero of Spark's How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire) -- five beautiful vamps from various periods in time. But Austin only has eyes for Darcy, whom he's convinced is a human. Darcy also has feelings for Austin but doesn't want to get him mixed up in her complicated world. Can they have a future together, and who will win the harem?
This is a delightful novel! It's great revisiting some of the characters from Sparks' previous book, and she makes this tome enjoyable for newcomers. It has laugh-out-loud vampire humor, sparked by Sparks' creativity. While it may seem as if human/vampire romantic conflicts have been played out, the author puts a new spin on them -- with a satisfying twist. Darcy and Austin are extremely likeable, and readers will love their story. Plus, the secondary characters -- especially each harem lady -- are charming and integral to the book, and the subplots add to the story without distracting from the romance. A must for fans of the vampire genre. (May, 400 pp., $5.99)
