    I usually enjoy books from this series, but this whole book was kind of surreal. Nothing really seemed to fit and everything just seemed a little bit wrong. I like Valdez. He's always been a main character and provided comic releaf. So I miss him.But I like Rafe. Why on earth did his character change so much just because he's no longer a dog? Even the author realizes she changed his character drastically becxause there's a throw-away line where Rafe admits that Valdez was a "persona he wore while in the dog suit." For five years he pretended to be someone he wasn't? I find that hard to believe. It's easier to believe that the author just wanted to write a new character without creating one.I also usually dislike Jerry. He isn't good for Glory. He always wants to control her. He never supports or believes in her. She can do better. No woman deserves a man who thinks she can't survive without him. So why does Glory stay with Jerry when Rafe is her best friend? Rafe believes in her, supports her, and protects her without coddling her. He's also way hotter than Jerry (or at least he is written that way.) Glory should be with her best friend - the guy she never keeps secrets from. In every book there has been something Glory couldn't tell Jerry because she knew he'd overreact. She can always tell Rafe the important things. I don't understand why the author tried to dance around all that in this book. I just feel bad for Glory. She tries to be a strong woman and then she just isn't. Finally, even Glory was a bit frustrating in this book. In the first book she was determined to be on her own two feet. Jerry gifted her a new car and she refused it. She kept her clunker. But in this book she willingly took a free car, free insurance, and free gas? All from her worst enemy? And yet she believes she is strong and independent just because it didn't come from Jerry? Most of the books I love have strong, independent women as main characters. Those are the qualities I admire when I read, but Glory just doesn't have that vibe anymore. So while parts of the book were enjoyable, most of it was just disappointing.

    From : St. Clair is a vampire with man trouble. Between her on-again, off-again lover Jeremy Blade, smoking hot rock star Ray Caine, and former bodyguard turned apartment mate Valdez, there's enough man-candy around to make even a gal with a liquid diet feel a sugar rush.Glory's got no time to enjoy it, though, considering that she's in the middle of planning her best friend's wedding. And let's not forget that there happens to be a hit on her head, thanks to when she took out a techno-freak billionaire. Now, between planning a bachelorette party and dodging stakes, Glory has to decide which man she really wants, before her love life meets an early grave...The Review:Vampires Have More to Love was lacking in a few regards - Glory comes across as unsure and gun shy; the confidence in the previous books absent. Most of the time Glory can be over the top, immature and needy, this time wasn’t any different. There is always a secret and with that comes lies. She doesn't know when she's gotten in over her head or when to call those who will help. In the end, it's part of her undoing.She did have some redeeming moments, like when she stood up for herself in the fight with Rafe's ex. Then there were the Energy Vampires and the old adversary, returned from the dead. This book wasn't short on action for Glory, keeping her busy with bridal shower arrangements for her best friend Flo, and a new budding romance with Rafe. While the first part of the book started out rough and had a soap opera feel. The last half saved the book, the action came and the plot twists really improved the entire tone. Glory's wit and inexplicable ability to always land on her feet eventually make a return. The underlying story was satisfying and reminded me why I will continue with the series.

    NOTE: I have not read any of the first five books in this series.Glory St. Clair has one hell of a messed up life! She’s been around the block for a few centuries, but still hasn’t learned to be completely self-sufficient. Glory has recently (something that happened in an earlier book) left her long-time love, Jerry, and opened her own vintage clothing store to make it on her own. But as soon as Jerry strolls back into the picture, she turns to him for love. She also is playing a dangerous, flirtatious game with her one-time body guard, Rafe. When Jerry leaves town on business, all hell breaks loose in Glory’s life. She is nearly killed, blackmailed, starts an affair with Rafe, drugged, threatened, beaten up, and has to deal with Rafe’s demonic ex-wife. Yet she manages to keep it together while planning her best friend’s wedding.Vampires Have More to Love reads like a soap opera. Glory can be over the top, immature and needy. She drove me nuts at times. She proclaims that she wants to make it on her own, yet leans on a man at every turn. And she cannot stay out of trouble. Some of it is not her fault, but most of it is. She isn’t smart and tries to “fix” things without trusting those that could help her the most. She keeps secrets and lies to cover her butt, but in the end, it’s all part of her undoing.The last quarter of the story saved the whole book for me. Glory realizes what is truly important to her and how her life should be. She finally does what she needs to in order to set her life down the path she chooses. If you are looking for a light-hearted romp with a soap-operatic plot line, you will enjoy Vampires Have More to Love.My Rating: 3 stars: Liked it, there were a few issues - recommend (B)Please visit my blog at for my full review.

    Hmmm...I'm still not sure what I thought about this book. Honestly the constant boinking with Jerry for the first little bit combined with recreational drug use was making me a little sick. Then he left and I thought Glory was actually having a break through and would make some progress in her eternally stagnanted love life. I was very surprised when she actually did it with Rafe and was cheering her on, until she realized it was all a sham and she really loved Jerry (who she does it with at the drop of a hat whereas we've never really seen her intimate with anyone else she ogles). At which point the whole thing felt degrading and once again sickening....though I was hoping she'd fry Mara there at the end. Oh well.One other thing; once she'd realized it was wrong and she was totally screwed as far as Jerry was concerned (and yet kept at it still) I was kind of hoping she'd finally give in to Ray, 'cuz we know she's never going to have the chance now. I mean if you're going to hell in a handbasket, why not actually deserve it? Bah.

    Gerry Bartlett the creator of the Glory St. Claire books which have had my head spinning from day one in this, the sixth book in the adventures of Glory St. Clair. Her life (or undeath) never stops or gives her a break. She is the owner of Vintage Vamps, a clothing store, she is planning her best friend’s bachelorette party. Oh and let’s not forget that there’s a hit out on her for killing a Vamp murdering billionaire. She is being attacked from all sides and must still manage to handle everything that keeps her in body and soul. With all that and three never give up hot guys chasing after her affection it’s a wonder she has time to swig a bottle of synthetic blood. I am excitedly looking forward to Glory’s next adventure and wonder where it will lead her and her friends. I took this book from my local library for enjoyment and review.

    The best one so far! We learn more about the hot and sexy Rafe. He's a little more then just a shifter. Glory still up to her "I'm independent" tricks. She winds up possessed by a snarky demon who urges her to sleep with Rafe and just about every other hot guy. We find out some one is not dead who should be and whoa that was a shocker. "Dr. Simon" decides to make his acting debut, hysterical. He desperately wants Glory to be one of the EVs Flo has a wonderful wedding and Jerry gives Glory a low blow. Can't wait for the next one to come out. Will she get back together with Jerry?

    A really ridiculous book that also manages to be really dull.A vampire juggles feelings for two supernatural dudes and arranging a party for someone while complaining the whole time about how FAT she is, oh my god, life is so UNFAIR.Okay, first of all, if the average woman in the US is a size 12, isn't calling that weight fat all the time insulting most of your readership? Especially us ultra-fatties over that size?Second, let's make it a rule that any main character in any story doesn't get to complain that they're unattractive if five or more people in the story obviously want to bone them.

    I’m really starting to hate these books. I really wish at least one of her problems would go away permanently, before new ones are added. Would make for a less confusing and more enjoyable story. The readers wouldn’t get quite so fed up with Glory that they don’t want to continue the series. This one starts out nice with Glory happy with Jerry. The worst problem was Aggie (whom I can’t stand) showing up to help with Flo’s wedding. Creating a cool competition between Glory’s bachelorette party and Aggie’s bridal shower. Then a ‘convenient’ excuse pops up for Jerry to have to leave town so Glory can mess things up: again. Spoilers below. Yep. This is another Glory is a slut story, only this time she tries to blame it on the demon that accidently got inside her during a fight that Richard tried to stop.(I’d wondered why his religious connection was introduced to the series). But the demon only seems to be able to suggest things to Glory and make her hot and bothered. She can resist at times when she wants, so it seems like just an excuse to do what she wanted to do anyway. And the long scene at the end with Rafe about Jerry was so mushy it was nauseating. For awhile I thought the cool ghosts were back! I love Emmie and Harvey. But apparently Ms. Barlett though they should be the ‘situation’ to drop. I’m happy for them, but I’ll miss them. Also at the beginning of the series, Glory was so excited about opening a vintage clothing shop and making it a success. Now she barely seems to be there, except when it’s needed to be a place for problems to happen and/or to use the back room for quickies with the ‘guy of the hour’. What about all the problems she had getting enough good employees to cover the 24 hours shifts? Suddenly that has disappeared. That website with the vampire kills should have been turned over to the authorities. The government may not believe in vampires, but those are definitely photos of people’ murders with Westwood involved and his estate and business can be investigated. Even without bodies, it shows that something odd was going on. But then there’d be no reason for Westwood and Simon to blackmail her. By the end when Glory confesses to Jerry and he walks out on her, I was bawling. But Flo's 'exorcisum' saved the day and at least Glory and Jerry are still talking. But if Glory doesn’t start to get her act together in the next book I’m outta here. Fave scenes: (there’s a few) the demon fight in Glory’s shop, taping the fake video and Aggie’s party games.

    Real Vampire Have More to Love by Gerry BartlettParanormal Romance- Dec. 7th, 20104 starsLight-hearted and zany, this hilarious vampire series is a hoot. Readers who enjoy the paranormal romances books by Kerrelyn Sparks will definitely enjoy this one too!Glory St. Clair is a vampire who declared independence from her handsome maker Jeremy Blade. Jeremy is the love of Glory's life. He wants to marry her and shower her with his riches but, unfortunately, he also smothers her. Jeremy turned Glory into a vampire in the 1600's and his old fashioned views of women are stifling. Glory realizes that she has to try to stand on her own 2 feet, so she has separated from him. But her good friend Flo is getting married and her husband to-be has asked Jeremy to be his best man! In addition, a past love interest named Ray is also coming to town on unrelated business and Jeremy and Ray hate each other! Plus, her best-friend and ex-furry guardian, Rafe has now transformed into a good-looking guy who is sending out flirtations to Glory. And she can't but help notice how hunky he is. But Rafe's ex- wife is bent on causing trouble for her. When she thinks things couldn't get worse she is attacked by 2 humans bent on murdering her because she had to kill their father (a vampire slayer) in self defense. And she has been put in charge of throwing bachelorette party! Will Glory survive the stress?Glory grows on you. I liked that she is not the typical thin heroine and has plenty of curves. Glory is a bit self-conscious about her looks and mourns that she was turned vampire when she feels she was overweight. Because of this she lacks some self-confidence and is very relatable. I also liked that she is very girly and feisty. Her main squeeze, Jeremy, is very sexy and I enjoyed them together. The entire casts of characters are also fun to read. Even the villains are caricatures that are amusing in their own ways. But this story also had some surprising twists that kept it fast-paced and upbeat. I really wanted to know how the long relationship between Glory and Jeremy would turn out. I felt they were good for each other but has issues that needed to be resolved.This is an entertaining series. Glory's love life is a mess, and it is fun to read her trying to juggle all her relationships and death threats. Quirky, optimistic and unabashedly cheerful, this book will lighten your mood and keep you wanting more.Reviewed by Steph from the Romance Book Club

    The second I started this book I realized how much I've missed this series. I read the first 5 books all in a row three months ago, but my library didn't have the rest of them at the time. I started off merely liking the series, but I was definitely hooked by the end and bummed that I didn't know what would happen next. Luckily for me, my library ordered the rest of the series so I can finally finish it! I really didn't realize how much I'd grown to love these characters until I started this book. Glory makes a lot of stupid mistakes and decisions (why can't she tell Blade to take a hike!?) but I love Valdez, Flo, Richard, Ray and even Aggie. With Valdez though, the character I loved is gone. Rafe is not even close to being the same person! I was waiting for him to make a wise crack and call Glory Blondie but he really is completely different as a human. That being said, he did grow on me in this book.(view spoiler)[I ended the last book a bit skeeved out by the thought of her and Rafe, but I was all for it in this book. I'm still shocked she actually slept with him! I found their love scenes to be way sexier than anything she has had with Blade, and I was cheering for Glory to finally kick Blade to the curb once and for all. Alas, Glory shattered Rafe's heart into a million pieces and went back to Blade. Blech! I'm so over him, and so over Glory's lack of a backbone when it comes to him. MOVE ON, WOMAN!!(hide spoiler)]Even with Glory's crappy choices, I still love this series and am anxious to find out what's next.

    Gloriana St. Clare, better known as Glory to her vampire friends and lovers is determined to declare her independence from bodyguards. Trouble starts on page one as her former bodyguard Rafe has shifted from his dog form into an irresistible human man.

How is a modern vamp-girl to cope with three lovers?While planning her best friend’s wedding, Glory barely escapes a deadly blow from the greedy offspring of a vampire slayer who Glory had no choice but to kill. The late villain, Westwood, left a will that awards his billions to either his son or daughter, whoever manages to take down dad’s assassin. Glory’s determination to stay independent is tested again and again.Ms. Bartlett continues to add new and intriguing aspects to the Vampire World in Austin she has created. For those new to the series, have no fear. Ms. Bartlett is a master at providing just the right amount of information to all readers exactly when it’s needed. I found myself laughing out loud on the first page and stayed hooked until the very wonderful end.

REAL VAMPIRES HAVE MORE TO LOVE is every bit as charming, funny, and heartwarming as the previous five books.

    Glory is always in some love triangle, and although I have liked a lot of books in this series sometimes they don't go far enough for me. They heat things up with the men but never take that leap over the edge. I can't say that about this book, it was hot and went far enough for me and attached appropriate emotions to every action. With this being the 6th book in the series it was nice to see glory coming out of her shell more, it may have been for the wrong reasons (read to find out the reasons) but it is always nice when you get to read and imagine another side to a character the have already read a lot of. It keeps things interesting. I don't want to say too much as to spoil it for anyone who hasn't read this addition yet, but trust me if you like this series then you'll love this book. I have to say this is defiantly one of the better books on this series thus far. Side note: I can't decide if the charater Jerry is starting to drive me nuts of not, what do others think?

Between her on-again, off-again lover Jeremy Blade, smoking hot rock star Ray Caine, and former bodyguard turned apartment mate Valdez, there's enough man-candy around to make even a gal with a liquid diet feel a sugar rush.

    What I really like about this book is that for half of it circumstances happened to cause Glory to loose her inhibitions about so much, which made it fun to read. She let her customers know just what she thought about what they picked. With all the men in her life she did things she normally wouldn't have. It was this last that had me really liking the book until the end, when she came back to herself and made a choice with the men. While I like all the men, and in the past I really like the one she made the final choice of, I was still rooting for the one she threw to the curb. There was a past between them that made for a great friendship, that I thought would have lead to a great love for them. I guess now, I can only hope that things can change in the future books.

    It's summertime and that means I head for the easing reading romance and chick Lit novels. I just could not make it through this one. I've been sampling a few books with the vampire theme because it's so popular. I've yet to determine why the genre is so trendy, because most of these books do not engage me. I've made it through about 1/3 of this book and can't push any further. There are so many threads to the plot, but I find none of them engaging. The book title refers to the fact that the heroine is overweight - though it's not clear by how much or how it adds to the story. It almost seems like a gratuitous grab for a "real woman" audience.

    This book would have received four stars if it hadn't been for the drama between Jerry and Glory at the end, it was just a slap one after the other (figuratively). I knew what happened in the book before Jerry found out what it was that it was wrong but then it made me mad when the boys just continuously hit on Glory, give the girl a break! Alesa was funny and just a pain in the butt. I think that this was one of the most interesting books also because of the EV vamps that had history with Glory and didn't mind drudging it up.

    This book was such a disappoinment to what was once a great series, after only getting a few giggles out of it i finally finished this piece of crap a couple of days ago.I was really hoping that she would come toher senses and be with Rafe and finally leave Jerry, but maybe Glory and Jerry do belong together, he's a controlling chauvinist and she wants to pretend she's an independant woman while having someone control her life. I definately won't be reading any future Glory books, which is a shame because it used to be one of my favourite series.

    Fun, fast read like all the Real Vampires books. Glory finds she still has the hots for Rafe, Ray, Jerry and few others. Now she somehow ended up being demon possessed. She blames it on that. A character from her last escapades that was supposed to have died, ends up resurfacing. Simon...head of the EV organization seems to think Glory would make a good candidate for the now all men group. Her love life goes into the toilet again. She never can cop a break, what's new? I don't know how she has made it 400 years.

    I loved this series in the beginning, but I find I'm disappointed with it the longer it goes. Real Vampires Have More to Love is still amusing, but I find myself not liking Glory all that much anymore. The constant complaining about her weight has gotten old. At least I haven't had to hear it for 400+ years. Her appeal to the many men in her life is lost on me as well. I just can't find her mistakes and general teenager-ness fun. It's time to grow up a little.

    Glory has been through it all with Blade, hundreds of years and they are still together, nothing can tear them apart, right? No, a new and very painful change stabs pain at more than these two. Many hearts break in this novel, many truths are finally told. The Ev are still after Glory, and someone truly awful comes back from the dead. Rafe/Val the shifter is main part of this story and we get o learn about him and some of his past.I loved this book I cried, laughed and cheered throughout it.

I felt she made the wrong choice in the end. But its only my opinion. I hope the next book we see more of Glory and Rafe together. Time to kick Jerry to the curb!

    Finally, Glory is back on track! This book more than made up for last book's disastrous storyline. And woah, was it HOT! I even liked the demon twist. Very interesting. Thank goodness Glory is back to being her own spunky but sweet self. And in this book she gets to play the bit of the temptress which is fun! Can't wait for the next book.

    Oh, boy. First Jerry and Ray, and now Rafe? My head is spinning with all the possibilities here! I spent so much of the book wishing Glory would make a decision one way or another, that I barely had any thought to spare for the actual plotline. Which, BTW, seemed kind of recycled. Well, I wasn't look for great literature here, and at least the steamy parts were good and steamy!

    By FAR my least favorite in what is generally one of my favorite series. Just didn't have the right "feel" to it. Plus I REALLY don't like Aggie, the Siren. And the whole "Rafe" thing was SO totally bad! Just completely off. If she was going to have sex with anyone else it should've been RAY!! Hopefully the next one gets back on track!

    Glory has more going on in this book than usual. Just when book 5 sent her back to her shop and getting the arrangements for Flo's wedding, the past come back to get Glory.Complications with Valdez/Rafe really bring about a change in Glory's life. Did not see that coming and waiting for the next book to see what happens.

    I liked the book but didn't like that Glory cheated on Blade. Really! She deserved to burn. I don't care that she wants to believe the demon made her do it. Yeah right. She already had the hots for Valdez and she could have resisted temptation. We'll see what happens in next book.

    this series took the term "on again off again" in a relationship to another long are we going to wait until Glory decide what the hell she wants and who the hell she wants to stay with???????
