Guest post by Tracey Sinclair @Thriftygal - Have you been to Dark Dates?

Welcome to Dark Dates…
Dark Dates is a London-based dating agency that caters for humans and vampires, setting them up for consensual feeding. It’s run by Cassandra Bick, a Sensitive – who fast realises that when your business is this unusual, things can get very crazy very fast! Lots of people – both human and not – aren’t so keen on her idea that Others and humans should live alongside one another peacefully, and she get swept up in a deadly supernatural conflict.

Girls’ gang
I deliberately went for a Buffy-style ‘Scooby Gang’ in the books – in part, because I wanted to write about female friendships, not just romance, and in part, well, I’m a big fan of Buffy! So while Cass has a lot of enemies, she also has a lot of help, mainly from her colleague, Medea, a witch (yes, another Buffy reference!) and Medea’s girlfriend, Katie. Cass starts out a bit of a loner, but over the course of the books, she becomes good friends with the women – though it turns out Medea and Katie have plenty of problems of their own!

But there’s hot guys, right?
Of course! Cass’ on/off boyfriend Cain is a hunter who heartily disapproves of her business, and she also finds herself increasingly drawn into the circle of the vampire Laclos – one of London’s oldest and sexiest vampires. Throw in the fact that, as well as wooing Cass, Laclos makes no secret of his interest in her stake-and-shotgun wielding hunter beau, and this ain’t your usual love triangle…

What can I expect from the books?
Snark, sexiness, plenty of action and lots of humour, liberally littered with pop culture references and jokes about TV shows like Supernatural and Buffy.

Cassandra Bick Chronicles #3

Blurb:  It isn't easy to surprise Cassandra Bick. When you run a human-vampire dating agency, your colleague is a witch who is engaged to a shifter and your business partner is one of London's most powerful (and sexiest) vampires, there's no such thing as a normal day at the office.

But when a mysterious Dark Dates client brings a dire warning of a new threat to the city's supernatural community, Cass and her friends realise they are up against their deadliest foe yet – and that this time, the danger is far closer to home than they could ever have imagined.

Sexy, snarky and with more bite than a crypt full of vampires, Angel Falls is the latest in the Dark Dates: Cassandra Bick series.

Interested in reading???

My Thoughts - I picked up Dark Dates (Book 1) a couple of days ago, and look forward to reading this series :)  Does the series intrigue you as it did me?
