Overview

Are you responsible for lifting a centuries-old curse from the sexiest vampire you’ve ever seen?

Does a demon lord want to destroy you?

Have you somehow inadvertently bound several mummies to your soul?

Are you the last hope for a lost little boy?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any of the above . . . you’re in big trouble!

Those are a few of the problems facing Nell Harris, a real charmer—no, really . . . a real Charmer—once she hooks up with Adrian Tomas. A devastatingly hot Dark One who’s earned the unfortunate title “the Betrayer” for selling out his own kind to a very nasty demon, Adrian needs Nell in the worst way. Though she’d be way better off keeping her distance, Nell can’t help but find this tormented, undead Betrayer dude just a little too tempting. And this time her penchant for bad boys might cost her more than her heart . . . but her immortal soul as well!

Meet the Author

Despite her love for novels, Katie MacAlister didn’t think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software. MacAlister resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes. More than thirty books later, her novels have been translated into numerous languages, recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell.

    I enjoyed this book

    I enjoyed this book. It had action, suspense, twists, love, sex and humor. All the ingredients I look for in a book. I also enjoyed how she (MacAlister) used some of the characters from the last book (Sex and the single vampire). What I didn't like was how it ended. Although it had a happy ending, I don't think she tied up lose end as well as she could have. The ending wasn't as powerful as the build up was. But, in a whole, it was a fun read.

    Great Read

    I read this book in about a day. I just couldnt put it down. I was constanly trying to figure out how all the characters fit together. It was exciting. The ending, however, was not the best. It left a lot to be imagined when she supposedly died... That is about the only flaw I could find w/ this book. It was great. I currently do not have any more of the series. I will be investing in them soon, because, I really enjoyed the first 3.

    one of my favorites in the dark ones series

    Katie macalister did not disappoint with this book. The heroine Nell is gutsy and endearing. The dark one, Adrian, in this book series is one of my favorites. Its a page turner and won't disappoint you....you will not want it to end.

    AMAZING CHARACTERS AND STORY!

    This is a fantastic addition to the Dark One's series. I read it in a day unable to put it down. The characters are sexy hot and I love the way Katie Macalister made the story. I reccomended this story to all my friends and to you! But I do reccomend reading the first 2 dark one's first so you get a insight on everything!

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    If you like mysterious vampires known as the Dark Ones, castles filled with treasure unlike any you can ever imagine, a heroine more content to translate obscure languages than work charms, and a supporting cast of imps, betrayers, and immortals, then SEX, LIES, AND VAMPIRES is definitely the book for you. <BR/><BR/>Nell Harris is the type of woman who delights in the old-namely, in ancient artifacts. A junior professor of medieval history in Seattle, she's been lured to the Czech Republic by Melissande Banacek to view the Holy Grail of her profession-the Graven Plate, a breastplate from a suit of armor made in the late 1300's at the castle of Churburg. A legend among medievalists, no one has ever laid eyes upon the interlocking plates that detail the history of a knight-errant. For Nell, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. Unfortunately, upon her arrival at the home of Ms. Banacek, she gets a little more than she bargained for. <BR/><BR/>Nell is not one to believe in paranormal beings or things that go bump in the night. So, when she spots a common Central European Imp in Melissande's living room, she's a little unnerved. When Melissande goes on to inform Nell that she's a Dark One, a Moravian vampire, Nell decides that the lady must be insane. Next, this strange lady goes on to tell her that Nell herself is a Charmer. A demon lord by the name of Asmodeus has taken Melissande's brother and nephew hostage, and a fellow vampire by the name of Adrian, whose also known as The Betrayer, is responsible for it all. Bound to Asmodeus by a curse, Melissande's brother and nephew cannot escape. Hence the need for Nell, who as a Charmer has the power and ability to charm the curse. <BR/><BR/>All would be easy if not for the fact that Nell has forgotten that ten years ago she actually believed in charms, curses, and her abilities. After a charm gone wrong killed her best friend, Nell buried herself in the past-and tangible evidence. Now she's been tricked into helping a boy who can only survive with her help-and in return, she'll have sole possession of the Graven Plate. <BR/><BR/>Greed and the desire for tenure may be the motivating factors at the start of her journey, but joining forces with Adrian, who isn't what she first thought him to be, is what keeps her going. There's more at stake than the release of a vampire and his son, and it's up to Nell and Adrian to combine their powers to rescue a society on the verge of collapse. <BR/><BR/>SEX, LIES, AND VAMPIRES is full of fun characters, quirky dialogue, and the redeeming power of love. This isn't the first book I've read by Ms. MacAlister featuring the Dark Ones, and it most certainly won't be my last. I love Ms. MacAlister's world of vampires and supernatural beings, and once you pick up one of her books, I'm sure you'll feel the same.

    Girls Guide to Vampires was a waste of time. I read nothing about a guide to vampires but am guessing it was just put there to show u that u cant go by what u think u know.in response to your response to kimberly. she more than likely wasnt talkin about the teenage twighlight series by Stephanie Meyers but the adult one by Maggie Shayne because she does have one. just thought i would let u know that kimberly was right.

    A Response To Hailey, a fan of the Twilight Series

    Hailey can wash that bad taste out of her mouth now. She obviously hasn't read the Twilight Series. Maggie Shayne started the series in 1993 with Twilight Phantasies. Every book in the series since has the word Twilight in the title. Prince of Twilight, #12 of the series, came out in 2006. I have enjoyed and highly recommend them all. Maggie Shayne is a prolific author and got me interested in this genre in the first place, which led me to Katie MacAlister. Searching for Stephanie Meyer, I see that she is a new writer of teen fiction and has 3 books in her Twilight Saga Series, the first of which is titled Twilight. They recieve good reviews, but I have not read them.

    A Response To Kimberly

    I've just noticed something that has left quite a bad taste in my mouth. Even though Kimberly posted the comment nearly 3 years ago, I just thought I would let you know, as a fan of the Twilight series that she mentioned in her recommended books section, the series was written by Stephanie Meyer and not by Maggie Shayne as she had stated. Hailey,
