Rednecks 'n' Roses What's a good old country boy vampire supposed to do when a smartass city-slicker female barrels into his life and totally disrupts it? What's wrong with hunting deer-with a rifle-for their blood, having a bushy beard, drinking beer out of Mason jars and sleeping in the bathtub? And what's wrong with his name? He was named after his grandfather. Rusty Nipple is a fine name. Amber arrives at her late aunt's quiet farm planning to write her vampire romance, only to find a man in her bathtub-a dead man. Only he's not dead. Well, sort of not dead. What more could a romance writer ask for but her very own vampire hero? He'll be able to tell Amber things about vampires no other author could ever find out. Her book will skyrocket to the top of the bestseller lists! But how is she supposed to write about a suave, sexy, debonair vampire if Rusty won't cooperate? Rednecks 'n' Rock Candy Ever since Sheriff Brad Keister was fatally shot in a drug bust and his cousin Rusty changed him into a vampire, his life has been completely upended. No more coaching youth baseball, no more corn on the cob, no more spending hot summer afternoons fishing at the creek. He can't even do his job as sheriff competently anymore. At loose ends and uncertain about his new vampiric identity, Brad begins to wonder if he wouldn't have been better off dead. Then Brad rescues Mandi O'Brian from the insidious attack of a malevolent rosebush and everything changes. Thorn in her behind, she launches herself into his arms and wraps her legs around his waist. For the first time in six weeks, desire pools in Brad's groin. As he pulls the thorn out of her butt - and ignores her angry comments about sexual harassment - Brad knows he's going to become much more intimately acquainted with the woman who's got his blood pumping in all the right places again. Even if he has to save her from drug dealers, angry bulls and herself to do it.
