What happens when a werewolf prince falls for a vampire nightclub queen? All hell is about to break loose.

Sadie Pemberton owns the hot NYC nightclub that also fronts as a supernatural bar.

Killian Bane is heir to the werewolf kingdom. With special permission, he can remain in NYC and start up a new club very similar to Sadie's.

Sadie can't get Killian out of her head; Killian can't stay away from Sadie; And boy do they both like to stir the pot up a bit.

So, what is a simple vampire to do when th

I'm riding a paranormal high and it's all because of VAMPIRES NEVER CRY WOLF! Seriously, how did I resist picking this series up from the beginning? I read this as a stand alone with no trouble, but now I must go back and read the first two books. I don't know why I keep doing this to myself; jumping into a series and then kicking myself for doing it because now I have to back track and read what came before. I was hoping that this would just be a simple enjoyable read. That I could easily walk ...more

Sadie is a two-hundred year old vampire and owns a hot nightclub in New York City. With one of the best DJ’s in the city and great bartenders, there is always a wait to get in. Sadie’s club caters to vampires and humans and unfortunately for Sadie, werewolves too.

Werewolves and vampires have a very fragile truce at the moment, so when the werewolf prince, Killian starts coming into her club every other night, Sadie tries to play nice. The city isn’t a usual hanging out spot for wolves, as they l

Need proof that you can’t help who you fall in love with? Check out Vampires Never Cry Wolf, the sexy, sassy latest from Sara Humphreys.

With plans to open his own hot club, he searches for the secrets of success in the hottest club around, owned and operated by vampires. What he wasn’t expecting was the delectably dead vamp, Sadie, who runs the place. Has this r ...more

I loved this! The hero was SO smitten with the heroine. He knew what he wanted and went after it! I love when alpha shifters are written properly! I was a wee bit sad that he didn't growl "mine." But everything else about him was perfect! I liked Sadie but I do wish she had resisted him a wee bit more, just so I could see even more chasing! He would have done anything to get her to mate with him. Sigh. So good.

This is probably my favorite book in the series that I’ve read thus far. This one really clicked for me and I think it had to do with it being a bit less serious for much of the book. Sure the tension ratcheted up at the end, but the majority of the story was centered around the pairing up of this fun couple. The writing style is also starting to remind me of some of my favorite authors like Alexandra Ivy, Jacqueline Rhoades, and even Kerrelyn Sparks. If you enjoy any of the previous authors I h ...more

Happy Release Day!!!

First, I love that name...Killian. Second, I really enjoyed this book. Vampires and Werewolves that have a pretty believable mythos are a joy to read. This is the third book in the Dead in the City Series. I haven't read the first two, but was quickly caught up in the action here.

Sadie is happy running The Coven, a bar in Manhattan. Well, except for the fact that this pack of Werewolves comes in every night. She finally asks the very hot, very Alpha, very sexy Killian why. He

Now traditionally in fiction Vampires and Werewolves are usually enemies and if truth be told this book does build on that but there's an uneasy truce between the two races that enables limited interaction. Werewolf and heir to his fathers Throne Killian is in New York to open a club but he has been spending a lot of his time ( every night!) at the Vampire run club. Now officially he is just getting the lie of the land and a few pointers but who does he think he's kidding! Sadie the Vampire in c ...more

I loved the back and forth between Sadie and Killian:
"Or did you come to try and steal my DJ again?" She tilted her chin in defiance and glared up at him triumphantly.
"Justine told you already?" Killian rose to his full height, his mouth set in a grim. "S***."
I loved Sadie she was a character that could hold her own, "how did you know I'd be here?" Her eyes flicked over him quickly. "And why are you naked." Killian was an interesting cocky character, "hardly." Killian held her fiery stare. "I
Really enjoyed this one ! Great steamy read and man o' man Killian was Delicious.

Everyone KNOWS New York is vampire territory, but apparently werewolf prince, Killian doesn’t really care! He has plans to open his own hot club, a club that will rival sexy Vamp Sara Humphreys. When scoping out the competition Killian gets more than he bargains for in Sadie, and to say ogling ensued would be an understatement. He may have just found his mate... and she is NOT were-kind. I really enjoyed this book,

Sadie Pemberton loves her freedom as much as she hates werewolves, but she bears the mark of the moon – the mark that’s meant to reveal Killian’s mate in this exciting paranormal romance. DaKota says that this is “one weird f****** family” and he might be right because the New York City Vamps have some interesting problems that are most definitely intriguing and they ensure that I have a great time each and every time I visit, so of course I can’t wait to find out what happens next.

Although this is the third book in this series it was the first I read and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. The chemistry between Sadie and Killian was great and I loved the development. I would have enjoyed it more though when the plot would have been better developed.

nevertheless, if you are looking for a hot PR this is the right book

Vampires Never Cry Wolf is a beautifully written story. I enjoyed the calmness Killian showed in getting to know Sadie. He was a hero who knew what he wanted. He went after his mate in subtle and loving ways that captured her heart without showing his alpha strength. I love when alpha shifters are written properly. Killian is perfect and Sadie completes him as his mate. Great story.

Sara Humphreys writes good books about vampires and shifters, and has two series to prove it. The fun part is, sometimes the two different species do show up in both series. Since I read both of these series, this book was a welcome one for me.

My first introduction to this series and I’m wondering just how I missed it. What great fun, with supernatural creatures and some smexy moments, Sara Humphreys brought so many elements together in Vampires Never Cry Wolf, and did so with humor.

4.5/5 stars.

Every once in a while, I dare to read a book outside of my usual comfort zone. For example, urban fantasy and paranormal romance are not often books I read. That said, I absolutely loved this book. I was lured in with the promise of kick ass vampires, sexy werewolves, and nightclubs and all of those things definitely delivered.

This book is the third in a series, but can be read alone. I hadn't read the first two books in this collection, so this was my first introduction to this cast

Great addition to the series!

Vampires Never Cry Wolf is the 3rd book in the Dead in the City series by Sara Humphreys. It features, Sadie, a vampire and Killian, a prince of the werewolves. An unlikely pairing, as vampires and werewolves are natural enemies. Though there is a truce between these two supernatural species, it is delicate and fraught with tension.

I received Vampires Never Cry Wolf in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Well, this was an interesting twist. ;) I love it when an author takes me by surprise.

I liked Sadie from the start, and even more as I got to know her. She’s adjusting to change. Some good, some questionable. She’s strong, witty and a loyal friend.

Killian isn’t exactly running away from the inevitable, he’s just stalling it a little. He knows that he needs to find his mate and take his place as King when his father ret

Humphreys’ in your face, personal, at times almost belligerent writing style suited this story perfectly. It puts readers right in line with the main character’s thinking and personality. It was spot on and something that I found infinitely enjoyable. There is also a subtle intensity that winds its way through the story, pulling readers in. Humphreys also writes this story in such a manner that it can be read as a standalone but also ties in to the series as a whole.

I had a lot of fun reading this one. Sadie was a great character. A vampire and owner of one of the city's hottest night clubs takes up a lot of her time - and now that a pack of werewolves has come to town (and her nightclub) she's getting a little annoyed at them. Vampires and werewolves don't really get along. But since one of those wolves, Killian, is the werewolf prince, she has to play nice.

So far this is my favorite book in the series. We get to learn more about the sexy werewolves (heck yeah!). Killian Bane is the prince of the Werewolves and oh so sexy. He's also not really an option to someone like vampire Sadie Pemberton. Sadie's been around the block a few centuries so not dummy. She knows how things work. And there's just no way to make anything work with a man like Prince Killian.

Killian on the other hand just can't seem to stay away from the gorgeous vampire. He's supposed

BRAVO.... I must admit, I wasn't sure how a Kellian and Sadie could overcome the difference they faced from the start. But the more I read the more I found myself hoping for them too. Sometimes it's hard to get POV from both characters that leaves you with no mistake understanding but I didn't have a problem with this story. I enjoyed the playful banter between the characters which was part of the reason I fell hard for this couple. I enjoyed the dynamic of story and can see more and more story ...more

“What's up?" Doug asked with a loud whisper as he swung the door open. His short blond hair was in a state of disarray and the pajama pants he wore were horribly wrinkled. The poor guy looked like a disheveled mess. Pressing his finger to his lips, he stepped back and gestured for Sadie to come in.

“Sharp. Intense. Powerful. Intoxicating.
Just like Killian.
Damn it all.
Before she could stop herself, Sadie took an involuntary step back.
Killian countered, taking one step closer, and his lips tilted into a lopsided grin.
Shit on a stick.
How annoying.”
