It isn’t easy to surprise Cassandra Bick. When you run a human-vampire dating agency, your colleague is a witch who is engaged to a shifter and your business partner is one of London’s most powerful (and sexiest) vampires, there’s no such thing as a normal day at the office.

But when a mysterious Dark Dates client brings a dire warning of a new threat to the city’s supernatural community, Cass and her friends realise they are up against their deadliest foe yet – and that this time, the danger is far closer to home than they could ever have imagined.

Sexy, snarky and with more bite than a crypt full of vampires, Angel Falls is the latest in the Dark Dates: Cassandra Bick series.

Excerpt

Angel Falls

by Tracey Sinclair

‘Tell me, do you ever watch The Wire?

For some people, this might seem an odd question to be asked by a vampire. OK, for some people, being asked any question by a vampire would fill their lifetime quota of odd. But in my line of work, this was pretty routine.

I was sitting in my office at Dark Dates, a dating agency which arranges matches for humans and vampires, among other things (those ‘other things’ lately, alas, mainly amounting to being blown up and attacked – and I don’t even get paid for that).

Click for more »
While we do an array of human-on-human matching, our niche speciality is to set up vampires with humans willing to indulge in a little light consensual feeding. Most of my vampire clients are fairly young in vamp terms, since they are the ones most likely to be open to my services while also less likely to have established such networks on their own. So discussing likes and dislikes, cultural references and tastes in music – all the things you use to find a suitable match in any dating situation – wasn’t uncommon. Admittedly, it was usually me doing the asking, and that wasn’t the only thing that was surprising about this vampire. For a start, most of my clients were turned a couple of decades ago, but my Sense – which, while not always totally accurate, can usually pick up on the strength (and therefore threat level) of vampires, allowing me to guess roughly at their age – was telling me this guy was factory fresh. Newly turned vampires either have a lot of Sire support in their early days (so don’t need the likes of me) or, if they are carelessly turned, go mad pretty much out of the gate. Plus, it was odd that he was in my office at all. Due to a confluence of events – including, but not limited to, an attempted coup d’état by a young vampire on one of the biggest clans on London, a werewolf attack and a supernatural conspiracy between said vampire, werewolves and a bunch of crazy witches – my business had taken a bit of a hit lately. So while I was grateful for any custom that came my way, it seemed that Mr HBO Drama here was too new to be plugged into the Other grapevine that was keeping so many of my clients away. Bankruptcy seems a harsh price to pay for saving your city, but it was starting to seem like a very real threat. So when Jason the insta-vamp turned up at my door, I welcomed him with open arms, and if he wanted to talk about TV shows, that was just fine with me.

‘I do, actually,’ I said to him. ‘My colleague’s fiancée is a big fan. She always says there are two kinds of people – those who love The Wire, and those who haven’t seen The Wire.’ I gestured towards the outer office where Medea sat, then remembered she wasn’t there: I’d given her a few days off to recover from all the craziness, since she and Katie had been right at the heart of it. Jason nodded, smiling, though there was an anxiousness in his eyes that seemed more than the usual nervousness at admitting you need help finding a date.

‘So you’re familiar with the character of Omar?’

‘Of course.’ Who doesn’t love a smart-mouthed gay stick-up man stalking the streets like he owns them?

‘Do you remember what Omar used to say?’

I frowned. I was as happy to discuss the minutiae of TV shows as the next person – OK, far more than the next person – but something was telling me this wasn’t a casual line of questioning, though I was baffled as to where it was going. Just as I was going to say something to try and steer us back to the topic of the interview, he smiled, though it was a sad, strained smile.

‘He said if you come at the king, you best not miss.’

My mouth sagged open, my stomach plunged. I knew in that moment exactly why Jason was here, and that it had absolutely nothing to do with getting a girlfriend.

‘Someone came at the king, Miss Bick. They missed. The result has been… carnage.’

I said nothing. His expression hardened.

‘And I’ve been told by reliable sources that this is all your fault.’

Outrage snapped me out of my shock.

‘Hold on a minute…’

He held up a hand to stop my protests.

‘The question is, what are you going to do about it?’

Instantly smitten by this sexy stranger, Barry joins Laclos on an after dark tour of the city, from its glamorous hotspots to its seedy underside. But Laclos moves in a dangerous world where not everyone is so taken with his charm – and it’s starting to look like he hasn’t managed to leave all of his enemies back in England…

Barry is about to learn you need pretty sharp fangs if you want to take a bite out of the Big Apple.
