If you're just joining us, welcome to radio station WVMP, "The Lifeblood of Rock'n'Roll." Con-artist-turned-station-owner Ciara Griffin manages an on-air staff of off-the-wall DJs----including her new boyfriend Shane McAllister---who really sink their teeth into the music of their "Life Time" (the era in which they became vampires). It's Ciara's job to keep the undead rocking, the ratings rolling, and the fan base alive-----without missing a beat.
For Halloween, WVMP is throwing a bash sure to raise the dead. They've got cool tunes, hot costumes, killer cocktails---what could go wrong? Well, for starters, a religious firebrand ranting against the evils of the occult preempts the station's midnight broadcast. Then, when Ciara tracks down the illegal transmission, the broadcast tower is guarded by what appears to be....a canine vampire? And behind it all is a group of self-righteous radicals who think vampires suck (and are willing to stake their lives on it).
Now Ciara must protect the station while struggling with her own murky relationship issues, her best friend's unlikely romance with a fledgling vampire, and the nature of her mysterious anti-holy powers. To make it to New Year's in one piece, she'll need to learn a few new tricks.....
I do love this series!! WICKED GAME rocked! (http://iyamvixenbooks.blogspot.com/2009/06/wicked-game-jeri-smith-ready.html) And I have absolutely no idea why it's taken me so long to get back to Ciara, Shane and the rest of the WVMP peeps.
BAD TO THE BONE deals with Ciara learning about her new abilities as a sort of vamp healer, new owner of the radio station, and being a girlfriend.
And there's the attack on the station with frequency interference during radio shows by what appears to be a hate group.
Bright side is Ciara finding the coolest dog ever! I want a dog like Dexter. I think I could make it work even if he is a vampire dog. We have a mancave, we could put in blackout curtains down there. I could find dog blood for him...as a vampire dog, I'm sure he's hyperallergenic, so DH would be good.
Supremely quick and delish read for me. It made for the best swing shift in a very long time.
Go visit Jeri @ http://www.jerismithready.com/ She has a nice stable of books out and more in the future. I can't wait to read each and every one. WVMP Radio series is on my keeper shelf, especially thanks to Jeri sending me bookplates to put inside each book. LOVE HER!
