Review: Tall, Dark, and Vampire by Sara Humphreys


About the book:

She always knew Fate was cruel…

The last person Olivia expected to turn up at her club 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…

But this is beyond the pale…

Doug is a no-nonsense cop by day, but his nights are tormented by 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, long-buried memories begin to surface. She might be the answer to his prayers…or she might be the dead of him.

I haven’t read very many paranormal romances lately, but while on vacation I was in the mood for one. TALL, DARK, AND VAMPIRE was a sexy, exciting read and just what I was looking for. Olivia is an interesting character – a little different from the regular vampire. She has spent her three hundred years as a vampire celibate and rescuing people (and animals) she finds in distress. Olivia also dreams – she dreams about the one man she loved as a human. Doug, unknowingly, shares the same dreams. When he comes to Olivia’s club to investigate a murder he is struck speechless by the sight of Olivia who looks just like the woman in his dreams. Olivia is just as shocked to see her first and only love standing in her club – alive. The action is non-stop. Someone is killing people associated with Olivia’s “family” and trying to make her and her coven look guilty so they will be punished. Olivia, with Doug’s help, has to find out who is trying to hurt her family and fast. The connection between Olivia and Doug is fantastic and very strong. I loved that they both struggle with the reality of finding each other again and what that could mean. I hope there are more books in this series featuring the other vampires in Olivia’s coven.

the book girl gives TALL, DARK, AND VAMPIRE a 4/5
