You. Wet and willing. In my bed.
Anything less than that and I will go mad. You get me?"
She nodded. "Yes. I get you."




Well, well, well, Miss Covington, looks like you got yourself a hot little PNR book here.

Whenever an author whose books I've loved comes out with a different genre, I'm always a little hesitant to pick it up. It doesn't always transition well and there's not many authors I can name that have successfully done so. But when Robin offered me an ARC of this book,

4.5--Vampire-licious--Stars!!

I don't read a ton of paranormal...mostly I think because they are a series with tons of books. I loved that this was a standalone. And well....just look at that cover.



Deacon and Cici first met in the 1700s when Cici was a human and Deacon was a vamp. They fell in love only to be torn apart and left heartbroken.



Centuries later Cici finds her business in trouble and her clients being murdered and she's the prime suspect. She turns to Deacon for help. Deacon agrees, bu

This is my first time read from the author, and surely will not be last. The story was good that got my attention. Though I admit, the first 25% of book, I was bored. But as I turn pages, it I can't put it down. The story has element of what I like in my vampire book. I love Deacon and Cici. Both characters are both stubborn yet can't resist each other. There are humor, suspense,love, sacrifices and the sex, oh boy. Cici is romantic and believed in forever, which contradict to Deacon's view. ...more

4 short, sweet and sexy stars!

200 years ago, following a vicious attack and at the request of her dying father, vampire Deacon turned the only woman he had ever loved into a vampire as she lay dying in his arms. Having been romantically rejected by her, he leaves her with somebody else to see her through her transition, and takes off on a mission to avenge her ‘death’ before purposely keeping himself out of her life to allow her to adjust and move on.

Hot, hot, hot! I got my hands on an advance copy of this and devoured it! All of Robin Covington's classic sexy style wrapped up in a paranormal theme. Deacon and Cici sizzled up my e-reader from start to finish. This is a fast-paced story with just enough paranormal world-building to make it exciting but not overly complex. Sexy, sassy, smokin' hot-- Covington's got it all!

Cici is a romantic who believes in love that lasts forever and she's made a business out of helping both humans and supernaturals to find it. Unfortunately not everyone shares her ethos, particularly when it comes to relationships between the two groups and they're determined to destroy her reputation by whatever means necessary. Cici knows she is in trouble and the only person she can think of to help her is Deacon, the man who broke her heart over 200 years ago. Deacon has never forgotten ...more

Robin Covington is a new to me author and I believe this is her first foray into paranormal romance and I enjoyed it!

For me this was a fun light read which is what I needed after reading some pretty dark novels recently. I found both characters likable and the secondary characters fun and I'm anxious to read their stories. The novel was fast paced and the world was unique. The humor that Mya brought to the story was invaluable.

If you are looking for a fun, quick read I would definitely recomme

Yet another sizzling hot book from Robin Covington. When I read the blurb I got the feeling I would love it and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest.

I got everything I wanted. Drama, romance, pain and love with some extra awesome-sauce friends in the picture.

Deacon is an alpha male at all times, bar a small moment near the end when his uncertainty is heart-warming.

Cici is another strong character that knows when t

Oh my gosh. I don’t know what to say about this book. I totally mean that in the BEST way possible. Sex and the Single Vamp is the best book I’ve read from Robin Covington. This is a HOT paranormal romance with suspense elements; delivering on both in spades.

Almost two hundred and forty years ago, Thomas Samuel Deacon made a promise to turn a dying Felicity “Cici” Trent into a vampire and protect her with his life. He also made a promise to himsel

Robin Covington is a new author to me and I am so very glad I took a chance on her when I was offered a review copy of this book! I think this is her first foray into paranormal romance - it looks like her other books on Goodreads are all contemporary romances. I enjoyed this book very much and I certainly hope she continues to write in this genre and specifically in this world as there are many other interesting characters we meet in this book who deserve to have their story told! Please.

Last week I told a friend I wasn't a fan of paranormal romance. I wasn't lying, but it wouldn't be the truth if I said it now. Robin Covington has converted me. The thing is reading Sex and the Single Vamp was a no brainer; I've read all her non-PN books and loved every one, so I had nothing to lose.

Cici Trent and Thomas Deacon have history. 250 years of it. In a world where Humans and 'Others' co-exist, although not necessarily in harmony, they've fought wars together, lived their own lives, b

4.0 – 4.5 Stars

200-plus years is a long time to deny your feelings for someone, but when Cici asks for Deacon's help, he can't refuse her. See, it all began with a promise Deacon had made to her father. Now, he thinks it's time they stop dancing around each other and finally give into certain needs. Is Cici about to make a deal with the devil?

Wowza! This is one dark-vampy-delicious read! Cici is such a great character. She's a vampire who is a hopeless romantic. She believes in the forever kind

Robin Covington jumps into the paranormal pool and does it with style with this release. I had the honour of reading this book early and let me tell you, it's fantastic.

I was hooked from the prologue and didn't want to put it down till I was finished. I loved Deacon and CiCi. The sexual tension and spark between these two is strong, I guess since it's being building for 239 years, it's understandable. When they give in, wow, talk about burning up the sheets.

I have to admit, this is my first book by Robin. I actually bugged her for a copy because she seemed so nice and genuine when we chatted about her Contemporary series. Now, I’m going to go back and read her other series, because if she can write such a hot, steamy and suspenseful story about vampires, it would take a Y2K type of catastrophe for me not to love them. I love when authors, especially new to the PNR genre, add little twists to the vampire mythology. Robin did not disappoint with her ...more

Sex and the Single Vamp was an AWESOME, SEXY & FUN paranormal read that I couldn't put down!

I loved, loved, loved our vamp hero, Deacon. He was the epitome of a tortured hero and a badass extraordinaire. Just imagine being in unrequited love with someone for 254 years!!!

Cici was our heroine, a smart and independent vamp. She ran a matchmaking agency where it didn't matter if you were a vamp, shifter, or human... she'd work on finding the right mate for you.

I feel detached to the characters, it's written in 3rd person, so maybe that's one of the reason. I'm not very fond of stories written like this coz, well, one reason is I don't feel that much connection with the characters and there's a few author's who can pull a 3rd person writing style really well.

I just breeze through the story and read the conversations.

I got interested when she was attacked by FAR on chapter 9, I actually read the whole chapter.

Loved it! It's a challenge for me to find a terrific paranormal romance lately. This one was AMAZING. Love Cici and Deacon together. They were feisty, strong, and sexy. The world she created and the feel of the book were fantastic. Their history, secrets, and pull between them stirred up a nice angst cocktail and when they got together it was smoking. I hope she writes more in this series. Would love to read more. I'll have to venture into her other books as I really enjoyed her writing style.

What would our world be like with Vampires and Shapeshifters living together in Washington D.C.? Ms. Covington brings us up close and personal with a matchmaking agency being focused on by a hate group, and the head of a security agency who has been in love with our heroine for two hundred and forty years! Did I get your attention?

I've read--and loved--several of Robin's contemporary romances. I met her at the Baltimore Book Festival last fall, and really enjoyed listening to her speak on several panels there. She's a lot of fun to follow on FB (two words: Man Wars. ;)) In short, I'm a fan, and was totally psyched to find out that her next book was going to be a paranormal romance. I jumped at the chance to read it.

It absolutely did not disappoint!

Reunited After 200 Years. A Blessing or a Curse?

Robin Covington’s paranormal debut was a hit! I was a fan of her books – the Boys are Back in Town series (A Night of Southern Comfort, His Southern Temptation, Sweet Southern Betrayal) and Playing the Part. Even though I was on a self-imposed “vampire strike,” avoiding all vampire books after many years of devouring them, I decided to read Sex and the Single Vamp with an open mind.

I’ve enjoyed Covington’s contemporary books in the past, so when I saw she wrote a paranormal, I figured I’d give it a try. While I’m not a huge fan of vampires, I did like the little twists that Covington added to her story.

Deacon has been a vampire for a long time now, but the one who hasn’t been able to leave his mind is Cici. When she shows up asking for his help, Deacon is powerless to say no to her. As he does some digg

Cici and Deacon were explosive together. Deacon's certainly blunt in what he wants, and he's wanted it for 2+ centuries. I loved that it was vamp/vamp, not buff ancient vamp/innocent human girl. It's even bette
