What - did you think all vamps were pale, thin and brooding? Don't I wish.

Gloriana St. Clair is an eternally "full-figured" vampire-she just happened to be bloating when a sexy Scotsman sank his teeth into her. She and said Scot- Angus Jeremiah Campbell III, aka Jeremy Blade-have been on and off again for centuries, currently off. A couple hundred years has taught them how to press each other's buttons-in good ways and bad.

Glory's headed for Austin and a new business venture: Vintage Vamp's Emporium. After all, she loves clothes, and she is an antique. Only problem is, there's a billionaire techno-freak vampire hunter on the loose. Blade's in total he- vampire mode, and wants Glory to move in with him so he can "protect" her. But it's time for this vamp to explore her own powers.

My-Thoughts

Real Vampires Have Curves by Gerry Bartlett: I really enjoyed this book! It was a fun read that reminded me a little bit of Bridget Jones meets SATC set in Austin, TX. The lead character is a real woman with curves, body issues, super skinny friends, a hot ex (that would so totally be my type), and dating issues galore. You throw in the fact that someone has it out for the Vampires in Austin, there is an over-protective body guard talking dog (not sure he really is just a dog), some friends with their own issues, and trying to get her business off the group—Glory has got her hands full. I giggled through most of this book and while I thought her relationship with some characters were forced (Damien); on a whole I was please with the flow of the story.
