    If you loved Real Vampires Have Curves, prepared to be wowed by Real Vampires Live Large. Glory St. Clair, the curvaceous, centuries old vamp, thanks to a man, is back and fighting off evil forces determined to mess with her independence. Also back is her maker and on/off again lover, yummy Jeremy Blade. When Glory¿s vintage clothing shop is fire-bombed, Jeremy is convinced that vampire hunter Westwood (introduced in the first book) is responsible. But this time, there are Energy Vampires (EVs) determined to steal Glory¿s stored-up power -- in order to make Vampire Viagra. Real Vampires Have Curves is even funnier, hotter, and more action-packed than Real Vampires Live Large. The chemistry between Jeremy and Glory is even stronger, and Glory¿s first person narration is every bit as compelling as in the first book. Glory is the sort of character you don¿t forget because she¿s like your best friend --with lovable imperfections and a big heart. If you missed book one, never fear. Bartlett makes it easy for new readers to jump into Real Vampires Live Large. My recommendation is to buy both, however, because after you read one, you¿ll want the other. Trust me, Bartlett¿s Vamp books are like potato chips -- you can¿t read just one!

    Large & In Charge!

    I just started this series and i LOVE it! Real vampires live large is the 2nd book in the series and Glory finds her self faced with EV's (Emotion sucking vampires!) I really liked getting to know Richards character better and was a little sad that Damien wasn't trying to get with Glory is this book, for some reason i like him lol but Blade and Glory seem destined to be together. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who loves vampires!!

    Great series

    This is a easy to read comical series with a good plot. The characters are charming and interesting to learn about. I would recomend it to anyone but if you read one the books you should read the entire series because all the books are tied together

    Lazy Read

    Now that I've read the second book in this series I've decided that while this is not a very stimulating book, it's a nice lazy read (especially if you like paranormal romance). However, if your looking for that book that will curl your toes and make you sweep from one page to the next with anticipation then this is not the book series for you. Again Gerry, Bravo for making the main character a size 12 (I could love you for that alone). I'm buying the other books in her series today. So, if you liked the first book then you'll like this one.

    Curl up with this when you want something easy and fun!

    This is the second book in a series by Gerry Bartlett (the first is Real Vampires Have Curves). It is a light and easy to read romance/action story about a larger sized vampire. Its a lot of fun and the time just flies by while reading it. Don't expect any mind blowing revelations or truly though provoking situations. That doesn't make it a bad book though. On the contrary I'd say it was really enjoyable to read. I would probably compare it to Janet Evanovich in terms of pace and lightness of subject. Don't pass it by in the romance section just because of the word "vampire". You won't regret giving it a chance.

    wish it had less sex and more story

    I've been searching for a vampire book that would make me laugh and this one does. I just wish it didn't have so many sexual scenes in it. I do find the book funny and it's very different from any other vampire book I have read so far. If only the author wouldn't insist on having so many sex scenes!

    Someone firebombs the clothing boutique owned by Glory St. Clair she assumes the arson was a hate crime against Vampires like her. Her part-time lover, who had converted her (see REAL VAMPIRES HAVE CURVES) Angus Jeremiah Campbell III, and is currently known as Jeremy Blade arranges for extra protection beyond Glory¿s bodyguard friend, the shape-shifting dog Valdez. However outraged beyond a berserker Scottish warrior, he also wants to go to the source to prevent a repeat. Prevalent theory is Brent Westwood, a fanatical wealthy vampire hunter, is the arsonist. --- However, Blade and Glory have to reconsider the initial assessment when more attempts to harm Glory occur. He realizes that it is her attitude not to accept her vampirism that brings the nasties: drug dealing energy-vampires wanting to sell her to the highest bidder. Still Blade vows to keep Glory safe even though that proves difficult when mobs of mortal, undead, and other ilk arrive to see a mural she is displaying at her shop --- The return of ancient vampiress Glory surviving in a modern world is fun to follow as she struggles with her lover, a wannabe lover, vampire killers, and energy-vampires all want a piece of her in differing ways. Fans of lighthearted paranormal romps will enjoy Gerry Bartlett¿s fun tale starring a heroine who has never forgiven Blade for biting her when she was bloated. --- Harriet Klausner
