Gerry Bartlett is a new author for me that I stumbled upon on one of my many trips to the Barnes & Noble bookstore where I get all my books from. I have seen her first book of her Glory St. Claire Vampire Series but I never gave it a second look until recently. After reading the first three books in the series I knew I had to give the fourth and current book in the series, Real Vampires Don’t Diet, a try because I love me some vampire paranormal romance novels. This fourth book was better than the first three novels because it introduced some more interesting characters that really spiced up the series for me. Gloriana St. Claire, curvy, stylish, undead, is spending New Year’s Eve alone and it’s all because her boyfriend, Jeremy Blade, is traipsing off to parts unknown to rescue his supposed daughter from the clutches of “dangerous radicals.” And if I was in Glory’s situation I would be a bit upset because this supposed daughter is more than 100 years old and can take care of herself especially since her mother is a big b**ch that hates Glory.
Blade and Glory have one very complicated relationship because Glory wants to be the modern independent woman that she feels she deserves to be while Blade wants her to be a woman from the medievel times that can’t live without him to protect her. So there relationship has been on and off since Glory was turned by Blade and they’ve had their own lives to deal with. Then just as Glory settles down to subject her telepathic shapeshifting dog, Valdez, to an evening of chick flicks, she gets a call from the bodyguard of rock star and newly turned vamp Israel “Ray” Caine. Ray was turned into a vamp in the last book and I absolutely love him even a bit more than I love Blade because he is modern and not the medievel male that Blade is. Ray is also Glory’s favorite rock star and she has an attraction to him that conflicts with her love for Blade and that makes for a very interesting love triangle right there. So like most guests at a New Year’s party, Ray is well on his way to being drunk off his butt, despite the fact that alcohol and turned vampires don’t exactly mix. I don’t know exactly why food and liquid, especially alcohol don’t mix with turned vampires but that must really suck because I can’t imagine not being able to eat or drink for centuries.
Glory speeds over to the party to save Ray from himself, and finds the rock star more depressed than drunk. And I can almost understand how he feels because he was turned without his knowledge or concent to be a vampire but now he has to adjust to becoming a vampire. To take his mind off his vamp issues, she asks him for a late-night boat ride and what kind of trouble could they possibly run into out in the middle of a lake late at night? Well that is when everything gets so interesting that I just had to keep reading until I found that answer and finished this book with one twist after another that kept me turning the pages. By the time I read the last paragraph in this book I knew that I really wanted to read the next book but that is going to be a long time waiting because Ms. Bartlett is still working on it and it might not be out until next year. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
REAL VAMPIRES DON’T DIET $ 14.00 (Book 4)(344 Pages)
EVEN AFTER FOUR HUNDRED YEARS, DON’T BE SURPRISED IF YOUR BOYFRIEND STILL MANAGES TO DISAPPOINT YOU…

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
