I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Shane Quesada, a four-century old vampire sentry, is known for cold, unemotional precision when hunting rogue vampires.
Maya Robertson is a youngling vampire who will not be controlled—and to prove it, she rejects Shane’s protection—only to find herself in over her head with an alpha werewolf.
Soon, a war between the coven and the werewolf clan ignites, and Maya and Shane flee to Louisiana, where their passion for each other grows—as does Maya’s power. When she finds herself at the center of the conflict, will she finally trust Shane with her life—and her heart?
With so many vampire paranormal romances out there it’s really refreshing to read one that has a different sin on vampires. Sara Humphrey’s Vampire Trouble has some of what I’ve come to think of as basic vampire elements but then she twist them to make them her own unique creatures.
Basic Vamp Characteristics:
Some Not so Basic Vamp Characteristics:
Maya Roberston is a baby vamp. She was turned five years ago in order to save her life after she was attacked. She a blonde bomb shell with a full dose of snark and has no need for a man unless he’s human, a creep and she’s hungry.
Shane Quesada is an old vamp (400 years) and a loner. Oh and sexy as hell even if smiling would hurt him. Shane is a warrior and in his long vampire life has never allowed himself to fall in love but night after night he stalks Maya the pretty bartender at the local vampire friendly bar.
Both Maya and Shane are jaded but in different ways and for different reasons. But there’s no doubt they are attracted to each other. And when they are put together in order to stop a war that Maya’s actions may have started. Oh and Maya has a mysterious past that not even she knows the truth about.
Vampire Trouble is my first Sara Humphrey’s book and it will not be my last. Next on my TBR is the first book in the Dead in the City series, Tall, Dark and Vampire.
If you’re looking for a sexy paranormal romance with a side of mystery and suspense you really should pick up Vampire Trouble and see what kinds of trouble Maya and Shane get into.
