Sadie is the sassy new owner of The Coven, a dance club for the vampire population of New York City. She might be hundreds of years old, but she’s never had this much responsibility before. She keeps surprising herself by totally owning the business-owner thing. She is focused on juggling business and keeping her vampire siblings and workers happy.

Unfortunately, one of her siblings has a terrible secret that could launch the vampires into a war with the werewolves if it is ever revealed. There’s only one werewolf that knows her secret, and he happens to be the sexy werewolf prince that keeps coming into The Coven. Sadie is convinced he’s only there to torment her and her siblings, and continually remind them that he can ruin their lives.

Killian Bane is the unhappy heir to the throne of all werewolves. He has escaped the pressures of royal life by coming to NYC to further the relations between the werewolves and vampire governments. Killian is wise, fair, and tired of all the political intrigue that comes with the throne. He’s looking to escape for just a few months; unfortunately, the manipulators don’t want to give him any peace.

While visiting the local vampire club, he becomes entranced with the owner, Sadie Pemberton. So far, he has been able to control his attraction for the sassy vampire. Things start to heat up between them, but it’s definitely not a love-at-first-sight situation; more like a you-really-annoy-me-but-you’re-really-hot scenario. Killian just needs one reason to take their attraction to the next level and pursue a relationship.

For as long as he can remember he has had haunting dreams about a mysterious woman with a scar in the shape of the moon on her shoulder, and he’s convinced that once he finds this woman, she will be his mate. Should he pursue his attraction to Sadie, despite his mysterious future mate, not to mention the political issues that would begin? Or should he submit to the attraction, potentially restarting the werewolf/vampire war that lasted centuries.

Vampires Never Cry Wolf is full of steamy, forbidden attraction that grabs your attention and won’t let you go. This was the first book of the series that I read, and I was able to follow the characters and the storyline without any problems. The characters do seem a little shallow and vapid, but the steamy romance makes up for it. The world seems interesting, with a centuries-long history of a devastating war. I wanted more from the development though. I wanted more personality from the characters. The world felt like it could be larger, but fell short–maybe this is touched on the earlier books in the series. Overall, the book was a great, steamy, light read that’s perfect for a beach vacation or a late-night staycation.
