Vampires Never Cry Wolf (Dead in the City #3) by Sara Humphreys Review
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 away from the series having just experienced this one good read. Nope, I enjoyed this one too much to let the world that Humphrey has created go. Double dang!
In VAMPIRES NEVER CRY WOLF we get romance that isn't exactly welcomed and doesn't come easily to either Sadie or Killian. Lust and desire, absolutely. But trust, understanding, and devotion doesn't come easily or naturally between vampires and werewolves. Sadie doesn't want to be attracted to what she perceives as a somewhat entitled playboy who's trying to move in on her territory by opening up a competing night club in her city. Especially not one who just happens to not only be a werewolf, but a werewolf prince. Killian on the other hand doesn't want to believe that fate would be so twisted as to place the mark that proclaims his mate on a vampire. With the werewolves just recently moving into New York and peace between the werewolves and vampires shaky at best, the pairing of a high ranking werewolf and an independent self sufficient vampire who runs a successful night club is not exactly a match anyone in the know would have made.
VAMPIRES NEVER CRY WOLF is full of paranormal goodness. It has intrigue, scandalous humor, strong sexual attraction, good dialogue, and a cast of characters that will leave you wanting more from this world. VAMPIRES NEVER CRY WOLF is a great addition to any paranormal romance library and is going on my favorite reads list.

Vampires are nothing but trouble…
As far as beautiful vampire Sadie Pemberton is concerned, werewolves shouldn’t be sticking their noses into New York’s supernatural politics. They don’t know jack about running a city—not even that hot-as-sin new vampire-werewolf liaison who’s just arrived in town.
Werewolves are too sexy for their own good…
The last thing Killian Bane wanted was to end up in New York City playing nice with vampires. Unfortunately, he’s on a mission, and when he encounters the sexiest, most stubborn female vamp he’s ever met, he’s going to have to turn on a little of that wolfish charm…and Sadie’s going to learn a thing or two about what it means to have a wild side…
Sadie forced herself to look Killian in the face, and the instant she did, she knew it was a colossal mistake. His eyes looked like pools of liquid gold, and she could swear he saw straight through to her very soul. A growl rumbled in his chest and Sadie gasped. His eyes flickered and shifted into the glowing amber eyes of his wolf. The sudden and instinctive change was a glaring reminder of who he was…who they both were.
In a remarkably steady voice, Sadie whispered, “Last night should never have happened.”
“The only thing about last night that shouldn’t have happened was the way it ended,” Killian rasped.
Sadie stilled when his large hand cradled her cheek. Despite her best efforts to resist him, her body quivered uncontrollably as he surrounded her in every way a person could be surrounded. When the heat of his palm seared against her skin, a needy moan escaped her lips. Desire curled inside her like smoke, and regardless of the litany of warnings that ran through her head, Sadie’s hands found their way to the front of Killian’s shirt. She grasped the fabric, still warm from the heat of his body, and pulled him closer. Sweet Jesus, the man had a body that looked like it had been hand carved by the gods themselves.
“Is that so?” Sadie pulled his shirt loose from his jeans and slipped her fingers underneath before trailing them along the hard planes of his stomach. Arching one eyebrow, she held his heavy-lidded gaze. “How do you suppose it should have ended?”
“The same way it should end every night from now on,” he growled. Killian slid both hands into her long hair. Sadie shivered when his fingertips grazed her scalp. He pressed his hips against her before slipping his thigh between her legs. Sadie gasped with pleasure as he put pressure on just the right spot, and when a moan escaped her parted lips, a cocky grin emerged on his. Killian tightened his grip on her hair and leaned in so his mouth was just a breath away. “Every single night should end with me buried deep inside you.”
