Sink your teeth into the first novel in New York Times bestselling author Michele Bardsley's Broken Heart series.

Broken Heart is the city with the highest rate of divorce and highest percentage of single parents in Oklahoma. And I, Jessica Matthews, have been a member of that club ever since my husband dumped me for his twenty-something secretary and then had the gall to die in a car accident.

Now I'm not just a single mother trying to make ends meet in this crazy world...I'm also a vampire. One minute I was taking out the garbage; the next I awoke sucking on the thigh of superhot vampire Patrick O'Halloran, who'd generously offered his femoral artery to save me.

But though my stretch marks have disappeared and my vision has improved, I can't rest until the thing that did this to me is caught. My kids' future is at stake--figuratively and literally. As is my sex life. Although I wouldn't mind finding myself attached to Patrick's juicy thigh again, I learned that once a vampire does the dirty deed, it hitches her to the object of her affection for at least one hundred years. I just don't know if I'm ready for that kind of commitment...

Cute, funny, and fast paced book in the vampire/paranormal romance genre.

Bardsley's take on the vampire myths mainly keep to the norm with a few quirks of Celtic legends thrown for good measure.

Jessica is a newly widowed mom with two children when she finds herself on the wrong end of a sick and crazed vampire named Lorcan.

After her attack, she finds out she's not the only one who was attacked in her small town. Eleven other single parents were victims that night, and all of them were changed into vampires led by a group called the Consortium. Jessica's vampire maker, a 4000 yr old, handsome Irish rogue by the name of Patrick.

Now, Jessica must find a way to continue to care for her kids as well as try to resist the advances of Patrick, even though she really, really doesn't want to.
