Gloria Duke

I write funny, sexy stories with a dash of the paranormal. But in all my books, the real magic is finding true love.


Vampires Never 
Say Die

Meet Carrie Adams: Serious. Disciplined. Focused. But as an aspiring actress, she's at the mercy of casting directors who barely glance at her headshot before making snap judgments about her talent based solely on her looks. She feels powerless...until one night she goes from snarling at her obnoxiously attractive coworker (musician-slash-bartender Nick Stokes) to wanting to kill him. Literally.

Turns out, Nick is LA's newest vampire, and Carrie has just become his chosen Slayer. In a Hollywood-bright world of typecasting, can a Slayer and her sworn vampire nemesis break free of their assigned roles...and discover love for the staking?

When Life Gives You Vampires

Twenty-five-year-old Lily Baines is used to waking up hungover, overweight, and underemployed. Waking up with fangs? Not so much. But when a little light necking has more serious consequences than she ever imagined, Lily's determined to get to the bottom of it, or die (again) trying.

Falling for her maddeningly gorgeous sire? Easy. Surviving an ancient vampire master determined to see her twice dead? Piece of cake. But in a diet-obsessed world, can Lily learn to accept a body that will never age, never die, and never change while she learns to love the woman she'll be...forever more?

Forget enemies to lovers; this is enemies to vampires with some excellent body positivity thrown in. The lesson? Be careful about hooking up with hot guys if they have actual fangs. Tons of seasonal monster fun and twists on traditional tropes.

With wit and charm, Duke proves that even when you're immortal, some things will always be a pain in the neck.

Duke's breezy novel has a twist on the bloodsucker that you wouldn't think would work, yet it does: a vampire with body image problems. Duke pulls it off by keeping the tone light while incorporating what makes the Sookie Stackhouse series a success: plenty of surprises and steamy vampire sex.
