I am so excited!!! I just discovered a new vampire series!!! And I am beyond thrilled!!! Suzanne Wright has created the most exciting and yes, different world of vampires in her Deep in Your Veins Series. Three different kinds of vampires, …. Well you see, basically, you know how there are varying accounts of vampires? Some humans report us to be terribly aggressive with hulk-like strength, some report us to be entrancingly beau I am so excited!!! Some humans report us to be terribly aggressive with hulk-like strength, some report us to be entrancingly beautiful and charming, and others believe that we are actually more human-like than the stories say.
Here Be Sexist Vampires
Well the reason for all the confusion is that there are actually different breeds. Samantha aka Sam is a London vampire, one of the lowest ranking vampire groups. Sam is such an incredible and funny character. She takes no shit from anyone. Underneath all that smarty pants is someone with a vulnerable side…someone who has been abused, seen and done some scary things in her life, and who has suffered loss and pain — but she does not let that stand in her way. She certainly knows how to put a dolt like him in place… I loved the characters in this book.
Oh you mean that cross between a whippet and witch personally. Hilarious and so fabulous…. He had to be blowing smoke up my arse. Okay there are some OTT moments and characters that are just so out there….. The funniest vampire book I have ever read…just loved it!!! View all 58 comments. Willing to take the risk of his wrath, she has no other option if she ever wants to no longer be his hostage, sex slave and assassin.
He has no clue as to why Antonio would have offered Sam a position as a co-commander after he refused to select her as part of the squad. It was nothing personal, she just wouldn't be a good fit for the squad. Isolated on an island Antonio, the Grand High Master, selects those he trusts dear to be around him. One of his trusted adviser's, Luther, had a vision of an impending attack on the island, and determines it necessary that the new squad be trained and ready in the weeks to come.
Sam is no stranger to hard work, she knows she cannot just demand respect And so help her God she doesn't cause bodily harm to any of them, especially the main pig himself, Jared. Sam is pissed off at herself for letting Jared get the best of her, why should she care how many consorts he has. Why should she care what he thinks especially now that she finally has the freedom from her Sire and a place to call home.
As much as they try to ignore each other, there is no stop to the insults and the constant conflict Wright truly has a gift for creating a world you can live in with characters that you love or love to hate. Sam is a temperamental, strong-willed, sarcastic female who is a complete bad ass on and off the field. She will only submit to a deserving partner, after of course she makes him work for it. Jared was a strong alpha male lead, but he understood Sam and let her be who she needed to be no matter how much it drove him mad with concern. The back and forth banter between Sam and Jared and the rest of the squad kept me laughing and dying for more.
There is action, a little suspense and some sexy luvin too, what more could you possibly ask for. I had to admit I was kind of scared when I found out there was more books for Jared and Sam, but this can be read as a stand-alone as there is a sense of an ending and a promise of more if you continue. With these characters I had to jump right into the next book because I couldn't let go just yet, I was having way too much fin with them.
Awesome read for sure and recommended to all my paranormal lover friends. View all 55 comments.

I freakin loved this book. The chemistry between Sam and Jared was explosive Wow loved that she kicks his ass more than once Jared: Jared is a super sexy, alpha male who never had a woman make him work for it and it was so much fun watching him and sam go at it.
Sam: Sam was a sexy, smart mouth woman with a great power and she kicked total ass. I loved her sassy comments and her powers were some of the coolest I have read.. View all 17 comments. Shelves: addicted-to-this-author , love-you-forever-and-ever. Well I love that sexist twat just because.
This book was a real honest to goodness, 'I don't want to put you down ever' page turner. I've had this book on my kindle for some time now and after feeling in the mood for a bit of paranormal loving I knew I could turn to this author and she would deliver and deliver she did. I adored every last bit of this story 'here be sexist vampires' is escape from reality perfection and it doesn't harm that it delivered on all my five star must haves Here are my vampishly excited book thoughts.
What's it all about? Sam approaches her new position with confidence and new found excitement but that soon has a damper put on it in the form of her new co-worker, heir to the Kingdom commander Jared Micheals, Jared doesn't appreciate having a female taking his side as his new colleague especially a vampire of such notably little status, Jared is more than happy to do things his way or no way. But Sam is not a vampire who is taking no for an answer and as her talents emerge so does a connection between this couple that can only be described as electric, but there are obstacles that stand in the way of this duo expressing how they really feel, can two people from different ways of life really make it the whole way to true love?
What did I love? Undoubtedly I have to start my gushing thoughts by talking about Sam the books heroine. Sam is brash, courageous, fearless and gorgeous I can't explain how much I loved this character her strength and beauty was as appealing as her humour and sarcastic nature; this lady is a real ball breaker and the author holds nothing back in delivering a character that is completing unforgettable.
For every sassy heroine Suzanne Wright delivers in her books is an equally swoon worthy alpha, Jared ticked all my must have qualities for the perfect hero; out there manly, unsure of his pull towards his love for the heroine, gorgeous without measure, some arse hole chauvinist tendencies and most of all over protective 'that girl is mine' feelings. Drama, romance, chemistry and between the sheet action that can't be measured in the hotness scales. Final thoughts This book is sexy hot, laugh out loud hilarious and Oscar worthy entertaining I can't recommend this book or the author enough.
Don't wait any longer, go grab it readers. View all 77 comments. Aug 13, Jilly rated it it was amazing Shelves: urban-fantasy , girls-i-want-to-hang-out-with , vampires , paranormal-romance. Oh my gosh, so much fun! And, I had a few doubts at first, but they were quickly thrown out the window as the baddest badass female heroine ever made me want her in my girl-tribe.
Sam Samantha is in the weakest of the three vampire races, but she has a special ability that is rarely seen and is therefore offered a job with the vampire king. Now, first I need to address the "special snowflake syndrome" that might go through your mind.
Yes, she's special, but she isn't the most powerful vampire e Oh my gosh, so much fun! Yes, she's special, but she isn't the most powerful vampire ever, and she's not the fulfillment of some prophecy, or one of those girls who doesn't realize she's actually the most beautiful woman on Earth. Also, if she wasn't "special", would a book about a mundane vampire who does nothing be all that interesting? No, not really. Besides, once you meet Sam, you will allow a blizzard of special snowflakeness because she is so awesome.
Jared is a sexist pig who has three mistresses who live together in an apartment waiting for their opportunity to "serve" him. He's such an asshole that I really didn't want him to be her love interest for the first half of the book. But, I was underestimating Sam.
She truly makes this guy work harder than the history of mankind to get on her good side. I appreciate a good ball-breaker when it is necessary. In Jared's case, it was very necessary. This guy needed a good old smack-down. The two of them are forced to work together to prevent an attack on the Vamp King. They mix together about as well as broccoli and chocolate. Now, I know there is some freak out there who is saying, "Oh, Jilly, I'm a foodie and chocolate covered broccoli is the latest thing. We all eat food, therefore we are all "foodies". Secondly, how dare you blaspheme chocolate with vegetables?
We already have people eating chocolate covered bacon, chili peppers, and bugs. When will the madness end? Just stop. There is a ton of sexual tension between these two as well - much like the sexual tension between me and chocolate. It's out there now. And, it is just as fun and delicious. There is also a lot of magical fighting as the vampires are training for battle using their "gifts". Some of them can teleport, shoot poison, throw fire-balls, astro-project, and many other creative things.
I loved the scenes where they were dueling each other, and then when they had the big battle. It made me really wish I could have a secret super-power, you know, other than the ability to make a pint of ice cream disappear. My other super-power immediately follows that one and is called shame. The other part of the book that was fun for me, but could be difficult for some others was Sam's language.
She is British and speaks in Cockney slang often. Although my husband is from the north, I still understood all of the slang, as he has used it at some point. But, I think most Americans would wonder what the hell she is saying half the time. Therefore, being the generous friend that I am, I have decided to provide you with a small glossary: He didn't tot around having a gander I know what you are thinking - a tator tot eating goose. Of course. But, in this case, it means that he didn't wander around looking at everything.
I know. A tator tot eating goose would be more fun. But, it wouldn't make as much sense. In this case. Why would someone tell someone else about a meat pie? Did he make the meat pie? Does he need a food taster? No, and this is where it gets a little weird in England. They have this entire vocabulary called Cockney Rhyming Slang, and it's super bizarre yet they all know it. It works by substituting normal words or phrases with things that rhyme with them. So, it seems that at some point, there were some Cockneys with waaaay too much time on their hands.
In the case of the above quote, porky pies means lies. Yes, my hubs uses this one. Along with many many others. If he wants to have a butchers at my dog and bone, I am not offended or afraid for my dog's life. It means he wants to look at my phone. They are crazy and I married one. We have microwaves for that. I've never considered melting it in my mouth and spitting it on my popcorn. Maybe Paula Deen would roll that way, but not me. But, for the Brits, this means that the person is playing it cool, nonchalant, aloof, coy. In other words they are so chill that their mouths are literally cold inside.
Why is that a thing?

Just as good the 2nd time around!!! I read the sample of this book and Immediately bought it!! Samantha gets recruited to try out for a job to be a member of the Grand High Master Vampire's Guard. She's a Badass and totally deserves the job.
Samantha Parker But the Sexist Commander refuses to give it to her, especially after she whips his ass in competition!! But fate has bigger plans in store for Sam and her Re-read of an old favorite!!! But fate has bigger plans in store for Sam and her sexxy, sexist commander, Jared. I had my ass kicked by a woman I had to laugh inwardly at myself: the whole thing was so weird.
She had kicked my ass, embarrassed me in front of God knows how many people, and even called me a pretty girl She's independent and doesn't require the approval of others. But she is pissed with herself because she feels an attraction to Jared that she is physically unable to resist. Only then will I slide my cock inside you. My name. Jared has never met a woman that didn't fall to his feet in worship of his beauty or his power.
Sam and Jared bicker and their dialogue is witty and will keep you entertained. The sex is hot and the love is sweet. This is fast paced and full of action. I fell in love with Suzanne Wright after reading Feral Sins. Her heroines are strong, feisty, and sarcastic. Well this series is more of what I love and I Highly recommend this series to my friends that love paranormal, erotic reads!! View all 38 comments. Listen book, I know it's not your fault that your author doesn't know what a thesaurus is, but I can't give you 5 stars when you use the word giggle in such excess that I want to cauterize the word out of you.
Why would any author use giggle , fucking giggle to describe how all the men laugh, at all times. There are no guffaws, deep belly laughs, chuckles, or chortles to be had in this book. You get a laugh or snicker here or there, but fuck the word giggle.

Now that that's off my back, to the actual content This book was similar-ish to Chosen , if it was about vampires and not as slice and dicing awesome.
Sam is a Svente vampire with a colossally badass gift that allows her to control people's energies and the elements' energies. She's an avatar! And I thought Aang was the last air bender. She's described as a crazy and homicidal bitch. I agree with this statement and appreciate her for it. She's not a bitch in the way of you need to shank her, more like she's got a snappy mouth on her. She's in an all guy's world where there are zero female soldier vampires or Svente vampires.
She's ticking off a lot of "hell no" boxes for people and getting tons of flack for her vamp type and being a chick. She responds with violence.

I like it. It's always good to slap sense into men, and if that doesn't work, beat some more. All the men of course think they don't need help from a female, so she beats them, obviously. Jared is kind of like Mr. Cayan Pepper, except he puts out. He desperately wants to put out actually, but Sam isn't into being another one of his consorts, which she describes as prostitutes that do it for free.
They're his mistresses I guess you could say and since he's not offering anything but that, she continuously declines him, even if they about set each other on fire with all the sexual tension. Jared is a commander and not at all happy to be working with a female Svente, especially one that can totally beat his ass in a fight. Possibly more.
All throughout the book she proves to him again and again that she's awesome and he should watch out for a kick to the nuts if he makes another snide comment. So that's the book. Sam teaching the recruits, fending off the sexual attraction to Jared, showing the menfolk that she's more powerful than they are, and waiting to battle. The plot isn't huge, it's enough for this book. I enjoyed the sense of humor in the book and reading about a new vampire myos.
View all 22 comments. Well, what can I say Suzanne Wright has done it again! She's the queen of the strong, feisty female leads and the deliciously brooding alpha males! From the moment I started reading this book I could not put it down. Chapter after chapter the story became more interesting and before I knew it I'd already reached the final page. With all the fights and action going on as well as Sam and Jared's constant bickering, there was never a dull moment and all the equally unique side characters made the story all the more fun to read.
I mean, who wouldn't like all of that combined together, right!? View all 52 comments. Jun 22, Deborah rated it it was amazing. The question I asked myself several times while reading this book was 'why haven't I read this sooner? The Phoenix Pack series by this author has been on my to-read list for years and once I've finished with 'Deep In Your Veins' I'm really going to have to get started on that.
Anyway back to this book. Since I'm late to the party there's already so many excellent reviews so I'll keep mine brief. I've spent years looking for a different, interesting vampire book and it was here all the time. Yet even without the different vampires and their amazing powers this book is worth reading for Sam and Sam alone. Here is a strong intelligent female the kind that is missing from so many books. She's fabulous and a pleasure to read, there's no stupid here, no vacuous female that turns to idiot mode half way through making you wonder how she even dresses herself on a morning, Sam is brilliant.
She starts strong and stays strong and the rest of the book is just as good, the only slight problem I had was Jared at times but there's a story there which I'm sure will come out explaining his behaviour at times.

In true Wright fashion, this paranormal romance is a delicious delight full of action, suspense, and passionate vampire love. When The Grand High Master offers her the opportunity of a lifetime, she jumps at the chance. Sam has been escorted to his home where she has been invited to try out for his royal guard. Jared, a Pagori commander, wants nothing to do with Sam and certainly doesn't want her serving in the guard. But when Sam establishes herself as a force to be reckoned with Jared's disdain turns to complete adoration.
The connection between Jared and Sam runs hot and cold as both learn to put their trust in the other. The paranormal world created by Ms. Wright, is quite magical with multiple characters, supernatural powers, seduction, and smoking hot passion. I am truly thrilled to have discovered this series and I look forward to reading them all! View all 15 comments. Sam is smart, mouthy, strong, mouthy, level-headed, did I mention she is mouthy? Loved her!! Sam is a Svente vampire. These vampires are more human like than the Pagoris known for their super strength and Kejas known for their hypnotic beauty.
All vampires have gifts. Sam's gift is she is a Feeder. She can feed on the energy surrounding her, absorb it and control it. She can also take gifts from other vampires 4 Sexist Stars It's official, Suzanne Wright writes the absolute best female leads! She can also take gifts from other vampires temporarily. This is very unusual her a Svente.
She is recruited to fight for the Grand High Master. Her Sire is a complete jerk so she decides to go so she can get away from him. This is where she meets Commander Jared Michaels. He doesn't think he needs a Svente female to help him and he isn't shy about letting her know this. Despite him being a sexist twat Sam's words , he wants her more than he has ever wanted anything. She isn't one of the many females that will just fall into bed with him whenever he wants, he has to work for her. I can't wait to hear that husky voice you've got calling out my name. There is a battle coming and Jared is scared for Sam as she will be on the front line with him.
She sees him not wanting her there as a betrayal. He sees it as wanting to keep her safe as the thought of losing her is too much for him. Can they find a middle ground? It's too late for that now anyway. View all 45 comments. Samantha aka Sam is one of the lowest ranking vampires but she won't take no shit from anyone!
And the fact she was so low and not as powerful honestly made her character X better, she had to work a little more and still ended up being a kickass, fabulous vampire heroine. The author's british humor and wit came across each page and Sam's vocab was hilarious: "He had to be blowing smoke up my arse" But I'm not kidding, Everyone was just giggling I'm reading about these gorgeous, tough manly vampires So basically the vampire warrior turned into a silly school girl. But overall was a great read, definitely recommend. View all 3 comments. If it is for you proceed to read it you won't be sorry as I have yet to be disappointed by S.
Wright's stuff. She jumps at that chance as it would help her get away from her asshole Sire who, because of her unique ability, uses her as his assassin and worst of all consort. She arrives at a private island in Carribean among many other recruits and passes all her tests with flying colors all because of her breed and the fact that is a female according to a beautiful Heir to the The Grand High Master and Commander and simply a beautiful Keja Vampire - Jared Michael.
Of course his male pride is hurt on top of her beating his ass at combat. In order to survive each other and prepare for an oncoming attack on Antonio they must buck up and help train the recruits in time for the attack. Oooh sparks fly as Jared can't stay away from Sam and Sam trying to fight to keep Jared away.
Yet all of it soooo unsuccessful as they eye fuck each other to teach and can't stop kissing each other. They grow and break their habits Oh and never has anyone run from me before. I was a vamp so sure I liked to be bit, but my dick: Hell no.
