Tall, Dark, and Vampire
She always knew Fate was cruel...
The last person Olivia Hollingsworth expected to see at her Greenwich Village vampire club was her one true love, Doug Paxton—whom she believed to be dead for centuries. Olivia thought she had moved on, but when Doug reappears, her heart knows she'd rather die than lose him again.
But this is beyond the pale...

The writing was amazing and the story sucks you in. Olivia is a kick butt girl with a soft side, but not in the way that you get annoyed with it, it fits her personality and how she responds to the people around her. Doug is that macho guy we all want that isn't all about showin ...more
I'm blown away by the feelings this book has given me. By that, I mean, heart pounding, adrenaline, smiles, tears! This continuation-spin off from the Amoveo Series is amazing! I love Sara's writing anyhow, but the way the new characters are introduced and the lives they lead, just throws you right in the middle and makes you want More!
In my opinion, y'all should read the ...more
First impressions are often times deceiving and that couldn’t be truer than with Sara Humphreys latest book. At first glance, Tall, Dark and Vampire appears to be just another “vamp story” but beneath its pretty cover lives a well developed story peppered with rich lore and a timeless romance.
For me it was Humphreys mythology that propelled this novel from being just an average, everyday read to something truly special. Anyone who’s read a decent amount of paranormal fict ...more
Tall, Dark, and Vampire
Dead in the City #1
If you’ve read Undone (Amoveo Legend Series, Book 4) then you’ll know some of the characters in this book, if you haven’t then the characters may not mean as much to you (at least to begin with) but you’ll still enjoy the read.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this new series but I was completely drawn in within the first couple of chapters. I read a lot of vampire books, but this one definitely stuck out from the rest and was unique and ...more
Tall, Dark, and Vampire (Dead in a City #1) by Sara Humphreys
Ms. Humphreys did it again to me! I never thought that I would get hooked to vampire stories, well it's done!
I read all of this author's books in her Amoveo shape shifters series and loved them so much; that I decided to read her new vampire series. OMG, I was so surprised and once I started to read it, I could not put it away. I was blown away! I loved her characters, Olivia Hollingsworth and Doug Paxton. I Love Ms. Humphre ...more
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this book, I’ve read Sara Humphreys before and enjoyed it but this is a new series. I have to say I enjoyed this book immensely. It was funny and action packed, one of my favorite combinations. Olivia was a great combination of compassionate and kick ass. She loves her “family” and would do anything to protect it, but she is not one to take shit. She is a protector by nature and will protect them to the death if she h ...more
Tall, Dark and Vampire is a story filled with action, passion and dark suspense, that’s sure to get your heart pumping from the very first chapter. Add to the mix some mystery, fidelity that has spanned centuries and a perilous menace bent on revenge, and you have a tale that will lure you in and hold you captive until the very last page.
With an extraordinary cast of intriguin ...more
Tall, Dark and Vampire is a Vampire story.. not creatures based on mythology, not Atlanteans not based on a war between good vamps and bad, not Vamps that ascend to other ...more
You had my heart before I was even born.
Olivia has been a vampire for 300 years, and lost the love of her life the night she was changed to a vampire.
Ever since Doug can remember, he was been dreaming of a red-haired siren, never expecting her to be real.
"I feel like I've been looking for you forever - my whole life," he murmured. "Every time you get closer, but no matter how much I get, it isn't enough. I want more. I want it all."
When Doug goes to investigate a murder at Olivia’s night...more
- Twelve percent in and already I love the loose ties this story has with her Amoveo series. Not enough to be considered a spin off unless of course she is thinking on more books to follow this one.
Just reached the part where the hero was introduced. Humphreys did a great job of introducing the heroine, giving insight about her character without doing an info dump.
- Fifty-percent in - Both the heroine and hero's personality are well established. With Olivia she is the perfect balance of "toug ...more
Riveting story. I found Ms. Humphreys writing and characters fresh and exciting. Tall, Dark and Vampire was the perfect remedy to my paranormal reading rut, I loved it. A lot of times in Paranormal Romance you get a male vampire as th ...more
More than I was Expecting
Three hundred years ago, Olivia Hollingsworth watched a monster slaughter the only man she ever loved, then was forced to become a monster herself. She's never quite gotten over it.
Sure, being a vampire has its perks, but mostly Olivia just tries to keep her coven, those vampires she's turned and the humans she's saved, safe and gainfully employed at her night club. In all that time, through every thing she's seen and done, with every soul she's saved...on ...more
A fun and flirty romance with bite! Tall, Dark, and Vampire has rekindled my love of PNR! Sara Humphreys has taken the vampire mythology and truly made it her own. Olivia and Doug’s romance will steal your heart and leave you wanting more. Don’t let the sexy cover fool you, Ms. Humphreys has woven an intricate new vampire lore that sucks you in (no pun intended!)!
What do you get when a 300 year old celibate vampire club owner and a dark and m ...more
TALL, DARK and VAMPIRE is the first installment in Sara Humphreys new Dead in the City series focusing on the vampires of New York City. Although the series is not necessarily a spinoff from Sara’s Amoveo Legend series about shapeshifters, Tall, Dark and Vampire does have a couple of characters who cross over that give the story a more familiar edge.
Olivia Hollingsworth is a three hundred year old vampire who lost her life and her love the night she was made. Twenty years ago she began ...more
Tall, Dark, and Vampire has a storyline so well written you will just breathe in every word as you anxiously turn the pages waiting to see where it will take you next.
Olivia Hollingsworth loved her life and her fiancé with all her heart and soul. Neither she or her fiancé Douglas Threadgood had any idea the night they snuck off into the wood their lives would be changed forever. In one instant violent moment the man she swore to love for all eternity was dead and she should have been ...more
When Olivia finds two detectives at her club's entrance, she is shocked to discover that one of the detectives, Doug Paxton, is the ...more
This is an extremely well written book. It kept me at the edge of my seat and I was at a point literally biting my nails - and I'm not a nail biter. The UST (Unresolved sexual tension) was through the roof and when they hooked up, a little on the disappointing side. I feel like the smut was a little glossed over. But it fits the mood of the book, so I'm not going to complain about that.
Tall, D ...more

This book was given to me by the author for an honest review.
Olivia Hollingsworth, club owner and vampire and Doug Paxton, NYC detective and human, feel the sparks when Doug goes to Olivia's club to investigate a murder. Olivia thought she was fated to be alone, but it doesn't take Olivia long to figure out who and what Doug is to her. Seems fate has other plans for a second chance at love.
Doug doesn't have the memories that Oliv ...more
I am really undecided about this book. I liked the plot; it was decent if not for a bit predictable. The character ...more
