Not just anyone can visit Broken Heart, Oklahoma, especially since all the single moms—like me, Patsy Donahue—have been turned into vampires. I’m forever forty, but looking younger than my years, thanks to my new (un)lifestyle.

And even thought most of my customers have skipped town, I still manage to keep my hair salon up and running because of the lycanthropes prowling around. They know how important good grooming is—especially a certain rogue shape-shifter who is as sexy as he is deadly. Now, if only I could put a leash on my wild teenage son. He’s up to his neck in danger. The stress would kill me if I wasn’t already dead. But my maternal instincts are sill alive and kicking, so no one better mess with my flesh and blood.

Letter with Michele Bardsley

Dearest Reader,

When I wrote I’m the Vampire, That’s Why, I never imagined that so many people would dig (hah!) the idea of vampire PTA parents. Writing about the unique town of Broken Heart, Oklahoma and the stories of its citizens is more fun than eating a box of gourmet chocolates. That’s a lot of love, people!

In the first novel, I’m the Vampire, That’s Why, widowed mother of two Jessica Matthews gets Turned by 4,000-year-old Irish vampire Patrick O’Halloran. They fight off evil vampires known as Wraiths, nearly die (er, again), and fall madly in love. Too bad hot sex means an instant 100-year commitment.

The second novel, Don’t Talk Back to Your Vampire, is about town librarian Eva LeRoy, proud single mother of a fifteen-year-old daughter. She’s unaccountably attracted to her … well, murderer … Lorcan O’Halloran. Lor’s a former Druid who can’t forgive himself for past misdeeds. And he can’t stay away from Eva, especially when he’s the only one who can protect her from the unknown evil encroaching Broken Heart’s borders.

Drum roll, please! My May release, Because Your Vampire Said So is the third book set in Broken Heart. I’m really excited about this story! (Or maybe it’s the overload of caffeine, but whatever.) Divorcee Patsy Donahue is an undead hair stylist whose clientele has dwindled down to human donors and shaggy lycanthropes. Her sixteen-year-old son Wilson is driving her crazy, but not as much as the ghosts who want her to solve their problems. However, her biggest problem is named Gabriel Marchand—a gorgeous lycanthrope with dark secrets that could mean the death (no, really) of Patsy.

Broken Heart is just like other small towns. The residents might be dead or furry or immortal, but they’re nice and have problems just like the rest of us. And they’re looking for love … just like the rest of us. And now, I’m thrilled to give you all a sneak peek from the next exciting story in the Broken Heart series…Because Your Vampire Said So.

Until we meet again,

Michele Bardsley
