Cover Art – “Bad to the Bone” by Jeri Smith-Ready

Turn On. Tune In. Drop Dead.

If you’re just joining us, welcome to radio station WVMP, “The Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll.” Con-artist-turned-station-owner Ciara Griffin manages an on-air staff of off-the-wall DJs—including her new boyfriend Shane McAllister—who really sink their teeth into the music of their ‘Life Time” (the era in which they became vampires). It’s Ciara’s job to keep the undead rocking, the ratings rolling, and the fan base alive—without missing a beat.

For Halloween, WVMP is throwing a bash sure to raise the dead. They’ve got cool tunes, hot costumes, killer cocktails—what could go wrong? Well, for starters, a religious firebrand ranting against the evils of the occult preempts the station’s midnight broadcast. Then, when Ciara tracks down the illegal transmission, the broadcast tower is guarded by what appears to be…a canine vampire? And behind it all is a group of self-righteous radicals who think vampires suck (and are willing to stake their lives on it).

Now Ciara must protect the station while struggling with her own murky relationship issues, her best friend’s unlikely romance with a fledgling vampire, and the nature of her mysterious anti-holy powers. To make it to New Year’s in one piece, she’ll need to learn a few new tricks.…


  1. Lol. Sounds like a neat book and the cover is pretty cool as well.

  2. Sounds like an interesting book. But mostly I want to know what kind of dog that is--it looks bad ass! Maybe a cane corso? It sure is big enough!

  3. I can't wait for this book. Wicked Games was an awesome read.

  4. Ladytink UF books are getting lots of great covers lately. I liked the first book in this series too.

    Daya maybe some kind of mastiff?

    Jessa not long to wait. Should be a fun read.
