Dangerous curves lie ahead in the latest hilarious novel from the national bestselling author of Real Vampires Hate Their Thighs.

Glory St. Clair is a vampire with man trouble. Between her on-again, off- again lover Jeremy Blade, smoking hot rock star Ray Caine, and former bodyguard turned apartment mate Valdez, there's enough man-candy around to make even a gal with a liquid diet feel a sugar rush.

Glory's got no time to enjoy it, though, considering that she's in the middle of planning her best friend's wedding. And let's not forget that there happens to be a hit on her head, thanks to when she took out a techno-freak billionaire. Now, between planning a bachelorette party and dodging stakes, Glory has to decide which man she really wants, before her love life meets an early grave...

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

“Would you quit walking around here naked?” I’d tolerated the smell of coffee and—much, much worse—baking cinnamon rolls, but I’d be damned if I’d watch my new roommate eat and drink wearing nothing more than a damp towel.

“Why, Glory? Is the sight of my bare chest getting to you?” Rafael Valdez licked white icing off one fingertip and my fangs stabbed through my gums.

“Listen. I’ve put up with your marathon showers until there’s no hot water left for mine. And your cooking smells.” Oh, great. Tears. But was it fair? Rafe’s a shape-shifter with a shifter’s insatiable appetite. He’d spent nearly five years stuck in dog body acting as my bodyguard. Now he was staying in hunky human form and no longer at my mercy for his menu. Who knew he was a gourmet cook? Maybe popping open a can of sweet rolls wasn’t gourmet in some books, but I knew nirvana when I smelled it.

He polished off roll number six—yes, I’d been counting—then stood. I would not notice the towel flapping open. He strolled over—flap, flap—to lay a gentle hand on my shoulder. Someone in this apartment was making a trip to the nearest discount store to get jumbo beach towels tonight. Since Rafe obviously didn’t care who ogled his family jewels, that someone would have to be me. Serve him right if I bought hot pink Hello Kitty. Let him strut his stuff in that.

“I’m sorry, Glory.” He smiled, his dimples showing.

It was still a shock to see Valdez as a human hottie. He’d been a cute dog, usually a Labradoodle with wavy black hair. Still had the thick curly locks, with dark eyes to match, but now there was a whole Latin lover thing going on, complete with those teasing dimples that were an absolute killer where the ladies were concerned.

Not me, of course. We were friends. That’s it. V knew way too much about me. He’d been an up close and personal witness to my love life, a tangled mess at the moment. And he’d listened to me wail ad nauseam about my issues. Which were numerous. I’m even afraid he knows my deepest, darkest secret—the number when I step on a bathroom scale. I’d been through a weight loss experiment recently and had a feeling he’d peeked. I mean, wouldn’t you if your best friend weighed in, mere feet away?

“Forget it, V. I’m a mess. Doesn’t take much to set me off these days.” My voice cracked. Oops. Was another meltdown coming? Personally, I was sick of myself. Made some tough decisions lately and regretted at least one of them almost instantly.

“No, Glory, I’ve been an ass. I get it. Vampires can’t eat. I know what it’s like to crave what you can’t have.” He pulled me into his arms and I felt weepy enough to actually lean into him. Damn those cinnamon rolls. Out of a can, but still.

“It’s just that they smell so good.” And he looked so fine. And felt so warm and strong and . . . I sucked it up and pushed back. “We need to get some things straight here.” I didn’t have to glance down to know that, hello, part of him was already headed in that direction under the stupid skimpy towel. Nice to know Mr. Tall, Dark and Shifty wasn’t immune to my dubious charms.

Oh, who was I kidding? I still had on my shapeless Snoopy nightshirt and hadn’t combed my hair since yesterday. It was probably his breakfast Rafe was excited about.

“Yeah, well. It’s your place. But I’ve got to eat.” His dimples were showing again as he headed back to sit at the kitchen table. “I’ll scarf these down, then spray some air freshener. Will that make you feel better?”

I sighed and collapsed on the couch. “It would make me feel better if you put on some clothes. And, excuse me for noticing, bought some underwear.”

“Whoa. Guess I am getting to you.” He laughed. “Cut me a break. I spent years naked inside a dog body. No wardrobe necessary.” He dragged a finger through a puddle of icing and licked it clean. Tormentor. “And I’ve never been too crazy about underwear. But for you, I’ll deal. Shopping’s just low on my priorities right now. I’ve been trying to get this nightclub off the ground.”

“Yeah, how’s that going?” I picked up my bottle of synthetic blood. Yawn. Not even my favorite type. Because my fave is expensive. And Glory St. Clair is always on a budget.

“Not great. Everything costs more than I’d thought it would. So today I finally caved and called an old friend. She has plenty of money and likes the club scene. Unfortunately, knowing Nadia, she won’t be a silent partner.” Rafe picked up his empty plate, rinsed it off and set it in the sink.

“Nadia? Is she a shifter too?” Even the name sounded exotic.

“Vampire. I worked for her back in the seventies. She’s got bars and nightclubs all over the world. Austin, Texas in general, will be a new scene for her so she’s coming tomorrow to scope it out. If she likes what she sees, we’ll strike a deal.” Rafe plopped into a chair across from me.

Oh, he did not just flash me. I stood and stalked into the kitchen to rinse out my glass bottle. We recycle.

“Good luck with that. Now I’m going down to the shop. Up here we need some rules. You’ve got to shower during the day while I’m conked out in my death sleep. The hot water heater here is only good for one shower a night and I have a feeling you just took it.” I strode over to the bathroom door, figuring the cold shower I’d get was what I deserved with these instant replays of leaning on the almost naked Rafe in my brain.

“Sorry. My body clock’s still on vamp time. Work all night, sleep all day, but with one eye open. You know?” Rafe got up and sauntered over to face me.

“Right. You went way above and beyond what any paycheck required to protect me.” I kept my eyes on his. Otherwise, I’d be checking out that truly great chest just inches from my nose. Didn’t help that his scent was as familiar as my own. Hey, Valdez the dog had slept on the foot of my bed for years. One inhale and I felt safe and close to the best friend I’d ever had.

“We’re even. You saved my furry butt a time or two.” He grinned. “Like from a crowd of energy sucking psychos.”

“We’ll never be even.” I couldn’t smile about that memory. He’d almost been killed by a group of vampires who’d been trying to get to me. “I’ll always be grateful to you. But you’re off the payroll. And I’ve got to learn to deal without a bodyguard now. We’re friends. Roommates. So sleep with both eyes closed, buddy. You deserve that.”

I admit that, while I was determined to be independent for the first time in my life, the concept freaked me out more than a little. But I’d told my overprotective maker and longtime lover, Jeremy Blade, to give me my space. That included no more freebies like the twenty-four-seven security he’d provided for the past, oh, four hundred years. Stupid me had even turned down the chance to stay in Hollywood and play house with the amazing rock star Israel Caine.

Sure I’m insane. But that’s me. Now I was out to prove that I could stand on my own two feet. In cute shoes, of course. The fact that I’d cried myself to sleep ever since I’d come back from Hollywood was just me being stupid.

“You deserve to be safe. How I sleep is my business, Glory. Don’t stress over it.” Rafe put his hands on my shoulders. “And get this, lady.” He stared down at me, suddenly serious. No sign of a dimple. “Yeah, I’m your friend and I’ll always protect you if I see the need, with or without a paycheck.”

“You shouldn’t—” I blinked when he backed me up to a wall.

“I don’t take orders from you anymore. Right?”

“Right. Rafe, what’s the deal?” Compared to my vamp subhuman temperature, his body was almost hot. I inhaled again but this time instead of “safe” I got a sizzle of something I hadn’t expected.

“The deal is I’ve watched you with Blade and Caine and I figure there’s a reason you won’t commit to either one of them.” He moved his hands from my shoulders to my neck, his thumbs doing funny things to the skin behind my ears.

“Uh.” I shivered, absolutely speechless for once.

His grin was slow and knowing. “Don’t worry, Glory. I’m not going to rush you. But one of these nights I’m going to end up in your bed again and it’s not going to be lying at your feet.”

He stepped back and headed down the hall, his towel hitting the floor as he walked into the bedroom and shut the door.

I was left with the image of his perfect taut butt burned into my brain. Dimples there too. Damn.

“Glory, I’m glad you’re here. Things have been crazy.” Lacy Devereau, my day manager and right-hand girl in the shop, looked me over. “You okay?”

“Fine. Rafe’s been torturing me with his cooking again, that’s all.” I smiled at a customer heading toward a dressing room with a vintage dress over her arm. “Business good then?”

“Okay, but that’s not the crazy part. It’s Flo. She’s made this place into wedding central. You know I’m one of her bridesmaids.” Lacy glanced behind her and lowered her voice. “Stop her, Glory. She’s talking about changing the dresses again. I don’t care if she is paying. With the wedding only weeks away, they’ll never get here on time.”

“You’re right. I’m on it.” I picked up a pile of receipts. The daily take hadn’t been too shabby. My vintage clothing and antique store was on trendy Sixth Street, between Mugs and Muffins, a coffee shop owned by a fellow vamp, and a tattoo parlor. The location for Rafe’s nightclub was a few blocks down. We weren’t far from the University of Texas and my shop had become a hangout for some of the students. Since I call my place Vintage Vamp’s Emporium and my bud Florence Da Vinci, the not so blushing bride, had painted a vampire mural on the wall, we were really popular with Goths and vampire wannabees. I’d tried to discourage that at first, then played along, even passing out fake fangs at Halloween.

“Where’s Flo now?” I’m maid of honor and had finally persuaded my former roomie to go with black, slimming, and a bodice that would cover a double-D cup. Being a tiny size six herself, Flo really didn’t get a full-figured gal’s issues with some of the cute little numbers she liked for her bridesmaids.

“I’m right here, cara. Come see what I have in the back.” Flo had thrown open the door to my storeroom. “You’ll love this dress. Purple. Your color. It will look fabulous on you. Jeremiah will take one look at you and—boom!—he’s yours again.”

Jeremiah. Jeremy Blade. Whatever the hell he chose to call himself this week, we’d parted ways in Los Angeles. He was there, I was here. One of the reasons for my recent crying jags.

“Jerry won’t be seeing me.” I didn’t resist when Flo dragged me into the back room. She slammed the door. I’d told Jerry we needed a break. So we were broken. Sniff.

“I fix everything.” Flo hugged me. “He’s going to be Ricardo’s best man so you two can get back together. Sì?

Ricardo or Richard Mainwaring was Flo’s husband. They’d been married at a private ceremony, but now Flo a.k.a. Bridezilla with fangs wanted a big wedding. Her brother Damian was footing the bill so this promised to be the wedding of several centuries.

“Doubt it’ll be that easy, but thanks. I’d have thought Richard would have asked one of his Vatican cronies.” Richard is a former priest. Long story.

“Oh, there will plenty of those guys here. One will be honored to perform the ceremony again, of course.” Flo flipped open a magazine and stabbed a picture. “This dress. Cute? No?”

“What’s with the manicure?” I couldn’t help noticing that each of her nails wore a slightly different color. I lifted her finger to examine the dress under it. It was cute. Actually might work on my size twelve figure, if there was elastic involved. Forget puff sleeves. Made my arms look fat. But Jerry liked me in purple. And loved a low neckline. I had visions of him seeing me walk down the aisle and forgetting all our issues.

“Glory! I said I’m trying out colors for my wedding day.” Flo held out her hand. “Which one do you like?”

I focused. Okay. Flo and I compared colors to the fabric swatch from her wedding dress until we settled on “Blush.”

Es perfecto. Grazi, Glory.” She hugged me again. “I knew you would help me. Now I have another favor. Did you see this?” She pulled a local newspaper out from under her magazine.

“What is it?” I glanced down and recognized the picture. “Ray? He’s coming to town too?” Ray a.k.a. Israel Caine. The other man I’d left in L.A. Okay, I admit it. My heart, which barely beats anyway, gave a little jig of happiness. Both my guys, hot vampires who I loved and had decided to give up, were coming to town. Would either of them want to see me again?

Well, Jerry wouldn’t have a choice, would he? And Ray? I grabbed the paper. The rock star was singing at a venue at the South by Southwest Music Festival. The festival was held every spring in Austin to give music producers a chance to hear new talent. The article claimed Ray was coming with the owner of his record label, another vampire. Maybe Ray would drop by the shop. I’d been his mentor and it had only been a few weeks since Ray had claimed he loved me. But then I’d dumped him. Not an action guaranteed to keep his love light burning.

“Glory? Look at me.” Flo fiddled with a bottle of nail polish remover. “That favor?”

“What is it, Flo?” I threw down the paper. How pathetic. I’d been on my own for less than a month and I was already imagining scenarios where both men were begging for me to come back to them. And then there’d been Rafe’s interesting move. Forget it. I’d looked like hell. Surely he’d been playing me, hadn’t really meant—

“Glory, quit ignoring me. And blocking your thoughts.” Flo frowned and shook my arm. “This is serious, mia amica.”

I hid my smile. Didn’t everything to do with my friend’s wedding rank right up there with the desire for world peace and half-price sales? “Okay, Flo, I’m riveted. What’s up?”

“Ray, Israel Caine. He’ll be in Austin right before my wedding, ?”

“Yes.” I didn’t like the calculating look on Flo’s face. She was blocking her thoughts too. But then she always blocked. Not that I usually tried to pry into them anyway. But this was an emergency. “What do you want, Flo?”

“I want Israel Caine to sing at my wedding, Glory. Please ask him for me. He’ll do it for you. You saved his life.”

“He’s done a lot for me too, Flo. We’re even.” I frowned down at that purple dress. Six to eight weeks for delivery. But Flo would figure out a way around that minor technicality, probably by throwing money at it.

The major issue? Ray and Jerry at Flo’s wedding. The two men hated each other. Because I loved both of them. And Rafe would be there, of course. I’d ask him to be my date. He’d love to jump into a brawl with my name on it. I smiled.

    pretty good!

    This is another enjoyable journey through Glory St. Clair's melodramatic world. Like the other books, the dialogue is witty and hilarious at best, annoyingly repetitive at worst. Glory, being her usual self, is still self-contradicting, all confidence and self-deprecation rolled into one. It keeps the series interesting to have an imperfect heroine who seems to finally be maturing, about time after 400 years. I appreciate the depth of Rafael's character and happy that Jerry is not the usual doormat when it comes to Gloriana. Bartlett's writing always amazes me. The story telling being always action packed, you feel as if a lot is happening. Upon finishing and giving the story some thought, you realize nothing much really did happen in terms of the main storyline. Could be due to Bartlett's penchant for telling 'side stories'. No matter, it is still an enjoyable read. It is light and fast paced and thoroughly entertaining. I must say my peace however. **SPOILER** I sincerely hope Bartlett plans to give Ray a 'happy ending'. I hate what he's been reduced to.

    One of my favorites in this Series.

    Glory is the plus size girl's super hero! She's sassy, witty, confident and always surrounded by sexy men! Gerry Barlett just gets better and makes us more addicted with each book. I don't want to give anything away for the readers, reading this Review but I will say. I laughed, cried and was on the edge of my seat the whole time reading.. If you are a Sookie Stackhouse fan you will love Glory! So if you have never read "Real Vampire book have curves", make sure you pick up the next couple books so you don't have to go through withdrawals, after reading the first one and the time it takes you to get to a book store. Already in love with Glory this book does not disappoint! It's our Glory only "vamped" up.

    Charming, Funny and Heartwarming

    Gloriana St. Clare, better known as Glory to her vampire friends and lovers is determined to declare her independence from bodyguards. Trouble starts on page one as her former bodyguard Rafe has shifted from his dog form into an irresistible human man. Rafe has a penchant for cinnamon rolls and strutting around in a towel, both of which drive Glory to distraction. In this latest installment of the Real Vampire series, Glory learns two of her former vampire lovers are returning to Austin: Jeremy Blade, her maker and Ray Caine, a rock star. How is a modern vamp-girl to cope with three lovers?

    While planning her best friend's wedding, Glory barely escapes a deadly blow from the greedy offspring of a vampire slayer who Glory had no choice but to kill. The late villain, Westwood, left a will that awards his billions to either his son or daughter, whoever manages to take down dad's assassin. Glory's determination to stay independent is tested again and again.

    Ms. Bartlett continues to add new and intriguing aspects to the Vampire World in Austin she has created. For those new to the series, have no fear. Ms. Bartlett is a master at providing just the right amount of information to all readers exactly when it's needed. I found myself laughing out loud on the first page and stayed hooked until the very wonderful end. If you're new to the serious, you'll want to take a bite out of the previous books after reading this one. REAL VAMPIRES HAVE MORE TO LOVE is every bit as charming, funny, and heartwarming as the previous five books.

    Not Sure

    When i first discovered the Glory St. Clair series i loved the books! But now after reading this book i've decided the same story is basically being told in every book just in a different way. (that's how it seems to me) Glory is a 400 yr old vampire, yet she's afraid of everything and acts like she doesn't have vampire strength or speed. Don't understand why she whines so much!! The whole Blade thing really gets on my nerves!! Blade is her sire and boyfriend although the way it's described in the book is that he's her on again/off again boyfriend but i've never seen the OFF part in the books. Blade to me seems like a controlling jerk. There isn't anything that defines their relationship except for sex. Also their are lines in the book about Glory calling herself a slut when she's only ever been with one guy throughout the whole series?? (Except for RV have more to love) It's annoying that Glory leads all these guys on but then whines that she can't be with them. It's like reading about a whiny indecisive little girl. I love the books with love triangles but Glory always runs back to Blade for some unknown reason. This series had the potential to be awesome because it is humorous but i'm tiring of it already = ( The whole Westwood angle has been wrote about to the point of annoyance! Gerry needs to write Glory to be stronger, no one likes a wimpy lead character and she needs new plots that have nothing to do with Westwood or Glory's attraction to 3 men when all the readers know she'll only end up with the boring Blade. (Or at least write Blade's character as being interesting! because right now i can't stand him)

But troubles like Glory's are every woman's fantasy; three hot, sexy men are in love with her: Blade, her sire and on-again-off-again lover of four-hundred years, whose need to protect conflicts with Glory's need for independence; Ray Caine, her vampire protégé and the rock star whose songs make millions of women swoon; Valdez, her shape-shifter former bodyguard who is busy opening a new nightclub in downtown Austin, he is the one man who knows all of Glory's secrets, maybe even her weight, and loves her anyway. With their inheritance in jeopardy the children of her former nemesis have a few billion reasons to want Glory dead. Their attempts on her life make Glory re-examine her ability to be self-sufficient even as she continues to refuse Blade's offer to hire a new bodyguard. Meanwhile, Glory is busy helping her BFF, Flo, plan her wedding and is determined to make Flo's bachelorette party the event of the century, although Siren Aggie hopes the bridal shower she is giving Flo will make the bachelorette party Glory is planning look like cookies and milk for kindergarteners. While Blade is away on business, Glory discovers Ray has found a gorgeous, skinny vampire to take over his education and that Valdez harbors a deep, dark secret that could threaten her very existence. Who can she trust? Will her need for independence mean the end of eternity for Glory St. Clair? Don't miss the latest installment of the Real Vampire series - fun, hot, sexy!

    The latest Real Vampires urban fantasy is a fast-paced deloghtful entry

    Shopkeeper vampire Glory St. Claire feels ill for having to kill a mortal technofreak although she intellectually knows she had no choice. Making matters worse, is Brent Westwood's will stipulates that if his two children snarling crossbow carrying Viv and her sibling David want to inherit the multibillion dollar estate of their late father, they must slay Glory. She does not want to kill them, but her protectors will without remorse.

    At the same time, Glory arranges a bachelorette party for her friend Flo and helping Aggie the siren host a bridal shower. Finally, Glory struggles between jealous Ray the rock star, former bodyguard Rafe Valdez the shapeshifter, and Jeremy Blade in town for the wedding. However, as Jeremy has to leave, the man Glory killed has found another way to come after her besides manipulating his offspring.

    The latest Real Vampires urban fantasy is a fast-paced entry as the son and daughter have several billion reasons to kill Glory who muses that Brent from the grave would still find a way to try to kill her manipulating his adult kids. Although a bounty would have helped the Westwood brood and a super villain feels like comic book caricature in nature, fans of the series will enjoy the sixth twisted adventure of Glory who still believes she is too big though the males sniffing at her blood say otherwise.
