Who says a vamp can't have it all?
Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first-ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's not bad. Now she just has to make sure that a mortal doesn't win. If only she wasn't so distracted by a super-sexy and live contestant named Austin.
But Darcy doesn't know the worst of it. Austin Erickson is actually a vampire slayer! And he's got his eye on the show's leggy, blonde director. Only problem is, he's never wanted any woman—living or dead—as badly. But if he wins her heart, will he lose his soul? And if it means an eternity of hot, passionate loving with Darcy, does that really matter anyway?
Shanna Whelan plans to marry Roman Draganesti despite her father’s (Sean Whelan) attempts to ruin said event.
Austin Erickson, a member of the Stake-Out Team, is assigned to watch the Digital Vampire Network (DVN) for vampires to target. Austin is stunned by the amazing beauty entering the lion's den so to speak.
Darcy Newhart still can't get used to her life as a vampire even after four years as one. Darcy's dislike of Connor keeps her from doing typical vampire tricks like teleporting, mind reading, and mind control because she feels like it's an invasion of privacy.
When Darcy comes up with a concept for Sexiest Man on Earth as a reality show for DVN, little does Darcy and Austin know their worlds are about to collide in inexplicable ways.
Austin, along with fellow Stake-Out Team member, Garrett, are assigned the task to infiltrate the show. Austin learns there are two types of vampires: very modern and malcontents.
Austin isn't sure who the good guys are any more. Will Darcy or Austin admit their attraction? Is Austin still one of the good guys? Your answers await you in Vamps and the City.
I'm really liking this series so far because it's full of shades of gray. The Malcontents are very black and white in thinking and actions. Modern Vampires see their role in society is to do no harm than already done, and create good.
I really don't like Sean Whelan. He's a manipulative bastard who can't see the good right in front of his face at all.
Shanna and Roman as couple is touching and sweet. Darcy and Austin are two people trapped by their circumstances and I’m not seeing a way out for either of them. I look forward to seeing where this series goes next!
