Behind the Book: Vampire Territory 2: Just My Type by @AllieRitch
Anyone who has worked in an office knows that it’s not the CEO who runs the day-to-day operations of the business. It’s the worker bees. This was one of the ideas behind my paranormal romance, Vampire Territory 2: Just My Type.
While Alex Gage is the master vampire in charge of the Southern Territory, her personal assistant Melody is the one who keeps the household running. She makes sure the vampires are well fed, watches the news feeds for any sign a bloodsucker is misbehaving, and generally organizes everyone to make sure things run smoothly. Some people might overlook this, but not Eryx.
As a guard and warrior, Eryx is used to the battlefield, but that doesn’t mean he can’t appreciate other skills. Sweet Melody is the heartbeat of the house. She’s also the sexiest little vampiress he’s ever seen. Although she knows nothing about combat, she refuses to be cowed by him, and he loves exchanging barbs with her. It doesn’t matter to him that others don’t see them as a good match. She’s the one he wants.
Unfortunately, he isn’t the only one competing for Mel’s attention. Wess Gage, their master’s human brother, sneaks kisses from her and appeals to her desire to be human again. Eryx would love to rip the man’s head off and be done with him, but he knows that’s no way to win over Melody.
Not only is there a love triangle, but you could say this is a workplace romance. And everyone knows the pitfalls of those. Just My Type came out 4/14/15, and you can catch the first book, Drinking Partners, if you want to follow the characters from the beginning. Here’s the blurb for Just My Type:
There’s trouble in vampire territory, and Melody is right in the middle of it. A new arrival from Eastern Europe named Taspar Tong is out to take over her masters’ domains using the army he has at his command. Mel is a personal assistant, not a soldier, and big male vampires scare her.
That includes Eryx, the dark-haired warrior who is always watching her and baiting her with his remarks. If only he didn’t look so sexy. Mel figures Wess Gage—their human captive—is a far safer love interest, although Wess is part of the Human Rebellion bent on exterminating all vampires. Can he really see past his prejudice, or will he turn on her?
There are two dangerous men in Mel’s life. She just has to decide which of them is her type—the one who makes her feel human again, or the vampire who makes her blood boil?
