This week's Teaser is from
WHAT’S BLOOD GOT TO DO WITH IT?
Recovering con artist Ciara Griffin seems to finally have it all. A steady job at WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll. A loving relationship with the idiosyncratic but eternally hot DJ Shane McAllister. A vampire dog who never needs shots or a pooper-scooper. And after nine years, it looks as if she might actually finish her bachelor’s degree!
But fate has other plans for Ciara. First she must fulfill her Faustian bargain with the Control, the paranormal paramilitary agency that does its best to keep vampires in line. Turns out the Control wants her for something other than her (nonexistent) ability to kick undead ass. Her anti-holy blood, perhaps? Ciara’s suspicions are confirmed when she’s assigned to a special-ops division known as the Immanence Corps, run by the Control’s oldest vampire and filled with humans who claim to have special powers. To a confirmed skeptic like Ciara, it sounds like a freak fest. But when a mysterious fatal virus spreads through Sherwood—and corpses begin to rise from their graves—Ciara will not only get a crash course in zombie-killing, but will be forced to put her faith, and her life itself, in the hands of magic.

You guys. You have NO IDEA how much I LOVE the WVMP Radio series by Jeri Smith-Ready. This series has quickly shot up to the top of my favorites list. Almost every page has quote-worthy lines, but you know I can't do that. So I chose two, one funny and one romantic. As usual, my teasers are too long. Oh well. Enjoy!
"Lori took Maggie's hand. 'Um, Regina's a vampire. But it's okay-she's a nice one.'
'Hey!' Regina rubbed her knuckles against her Husker Du t-shirt. 'I am not nice.'
'Sorry.' Lori turned back to Maggie. 'She's actually a bitch, but she doesn't kill people.' "
"The tension lines between his brows vanished. 'Amazing,' he whispered, then kissed me hard, with a
deep, human sigh. I reveled in the feel of his lips against mine, and didn't care that they'd be the only
lips I'd ever taste again. If I lived to be a hundred, my life with him would be too short."
See what I mean? This series makes me insane. I go from laughing to swooning, and sometimes crying. My family has gotten used to it. Thankfully.
