This review was originally posted at The Book NymphoWith so many vampire paranormal romances out there it’s really refreshing to read one that has a different sin on vampires. Sara Humphrey’s Vampire Trouble has some of what I’ve come to think of as basic vampire elements but then she twist them to make them her own unique creatures.

Basic Vamp Characteristics:

Fangs. Check
Drinks blood. Check
Super speed. Check
Avoids the sun. Check

Lots of action and drama keeps readers on their toes in this riveting paranormal romance. Maya Robertson refuses to be controlled and rejects Sentry Shane Quesada’s protection and finds herself in over her head with an alpha werewolf. With war looming between the coven and the werewolf clan, will Maya learn to trust Shane with her life – and her heart?

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps the adrenaline pumping with suspense, action, drama and romance. The author invites the reader to j

I was nervous about this book. I mean, Maya came across as young, impetuous, reckless, and a little bit whimpy. She constantly went out of her way break the rules for childish reasons. I get that her back story was awful, but she still came across as more of a 12 year old than a grown woman. So mating her with Shane, the older, stuffy, by-the-book, loyal to the presidium and all rules warrior? I had my doubts. But I thought it was brilliantly done in the end. I loved seeing Maya grow up and acce ...more
I really enjoyed the world building here! I haven't read the first book in the series, which I don't think left me too far behind in anything other than that couple's story, but I was pretty intrigued right off the bat! This was a great story that had interesting characters, a smooth flow, a great twisty plot, and some really hot sex! Maya and Shane had sexual tension that was palpable and when they go together it exploded! I liked how Ms. Humphreys reeled the reader in and kept me wondering wha ...more

Maya Robertson has been a vampire of only five years. She is a young vamp by immortal standards and like any other youngster, she has a problem keeping herself out of trouble. She does exactly what she is told not to do, she gets angry when she is told to behave by her maker and she likes to play with her food.

On the night of her turning, she was raped, beaten and left for dead in an alley. Since Olivia turned her, she has been plagued with nightmares of the night of her death. The constant feel

I loved this one as much as the first. Sara Humphreys writes great characters. Maya is a youngling, turned only 5 years ago. Olivia saved her after she was brutally attacked and left for dead. She's a bit of a troublemaker. Shane is the serious Presidium sentry. Has been hanging around the Coven to stare at Maya. One night he gets pulled into one of Maya.s dreams. He hasn't dreamed in centuries, so he's pretty sure he knows what this means. Maya has some things to figure out. She doesn't even re ...more

Shane is a centuries old vampire and the perfect solider. He is a sentry and one of the Presidiums’ finest. So how does he find himself suddenly pulled into the Dreamscape of a young vampire? Shane does not understand how he can be living Maya’s dreams of her last hours on earth as a human. The woman has the ability to make him forget everything, it almost seems like he is under a spell when he is around her. Shane knows that in his line of work being caught up in a

Vampire Trouble Book #2 (Dead in the City) Sara Humphreys
I totally fell in love with Sara Humphreys writing with the Amoveo Legend and try to read everything she’s written including under her alter ego Willow James.
Vampire Trouble is a continuation of her Dead in the City series and is basically an up close and personal look at Maya Robertson and what makes her tick. Many readers looked at Maya as a spoiled brat (including myself) but we really did

Shane Quesada and Maya who we meet both in the last book seem interesting characters especially Shane so I was looking forward to their story since they are completely opposite in their demeanor. While Maya is not the spoiled/ childish brat we think she is from the last book she does some questionable behavior and makes stupid choices which was annoyed me and it took me days to finish the book. Eventually I got passed it. This book is low on angst though which a plus b

Vampire Trouble is the second book for Dead In The City series. I must say this. I really enjoyed Maya Robertson and Shane Quesada journey to finding true love and peace. you see Maya is a five year old vampire who has a way for starting trouble or finding it. Shane is a four-century old vampire sentry who has a thing for this little trouble maker. Maya has no knowledge of who she is or where she comes from.

If you’ve read Sara Humphreys, then I’m sure you appreciate her smooth, fluent style that has readers turning pages faster than they even comprehend.

The dialogue is flowing and intelligent; with a diversity of characters in a realm that provides passion, humour, intrigue and danger.

We first met Maya; the beautiful, blond bartender in Tall, Dark and Vampire, and she is often referred to as youngling or baby Vamp, due to her recently turned status; but known best for her adversity to conform and

Hands down winner. I loved how well Shane and Maya worked together instead of fighting off their feelings for one another. Don't get me wrong; in the beginning Maya was irresponsible and didn't give much thought of the consequences for her actions and poor decisions would be; but that didn't drag out...thank god! Both she and Shane accepted the bloodmate thing pretty well, better then I thought they would. This was a story of building trust, coming to terms with what Maya is and embracing it and ...more

I <3 this series. It's full of twists and turns, love, growth, loyalty, family, characters from her other series dropping in, supporting each other :-). Sara is rapidly gaining as one of my favorite authors.

Maya, bartender and young vampire is a rebel and a lost girl that Olivia rescued. I adore rescue stories probably because my family is rescuers at heart. Shane is a 400 year old Sentry, has seen it all and can't figure out why he has to visit with Maya every night. When Maya get's in trouble

Maya started out immature and annoying and while she eventually grew out of it, it did take awhile. Shane is a stick in the mud alpha who loses any semblance of control whenever Maya is around-which kept things quite lively. An interesting plot twist with the wolf clan kept the pace going in between relationship issues with Shane and Maya. This is a solid entry and a fun twist to vampire PNR stories.

Another 4 star book by Sara Humphreys. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was very entertained by it. The characters were amazing. I love that the characters from the first book in this series were also in this one even though this wasn't their story. This is Maya's story and it's amazing. Of course there's a HEA ending to the love story but everything that happens in between makes up the meat of the book. What a feast it was! ...more

Ok, I admit it, Sara Humphreys could make rocks and fallen trees sexy.. I am the first to say I don't enjoy the "traditional" Vampire stories. You know with sires and covens, makers and such. But a good author can destroy all preconceptions. Vampire Trouble is book two in her Dead in the City ( also known as Vampires in NYC) Series. In book one, Tall, Dark and Vampire, I tumbled into love and in book two, Vampire Trouble, I just kept falling.

Maya Robertson is what is known as a youngling, having only been turned by her maker Olivia Hollingsworth several years ago. She has a tendency of speaking and acting without much thought and she feels as if all the rules of being a vampire are getting to her. On the other hand, Shane Quesada has been a vampire for over four centuries and has seen and experienced a great deal as a sentry of the Presidium, the vampire government.

What an exciting book! Vampire Trouble, by Sara Humphreys is the 2nd book in the Dead in the City Series. I did not read the first book in the series, but at no point did I feel as though I missed anything important by starting with the second book instead of the first. I do plan to go back and read the first book in the series, Tall, Dark, and Vampire.

Maya is a stubborn woman if I’ve ever read about one! I saw her as being cold and detached. I can understand her apprehension about getting close

;I recieved a copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.,

Maya has only been a Vampire for 5 years. So she is still considered to be very young. Her maker and her mate run the Vampires in New York and own a club that Maya works at as a bartender. Maya is still having Nightmares about the night she was attacked then turned into a vampire. She only feeds on men that remind her of the man that brutally attacked her. She has been seeing Vampire Sentry Sha

The second addition to this series was as good as the first. This book was Maya and Shane’s story, there seems to be carry over plot from one story to the next so it is probably best that I am reading this series in order. Now it does suck some times to have to read in order, but the plot carryover is part of the reason I love series. You get the opportunity to see beyond the happily ever after. I still want to give her other series a try as I can see there is still more crossover characters. No ...more
