Name: Gloriana St. Clair, nickname Glory Book Series: Real Vampires Job: Owner of Vintage Vamps Emporium a vintage clothing/antique store in Austin, Texas Height: 5′ 5″ Weight: Nobody’s business, I have generous curves and too much junk in my trunk (I was bloating when I was turned vamp) Hair Color: Forever blond with highlights when I can afford it Eye Color: Blue From: London, England, turned Vampire in 1604
Significant Other: Sire is Jeremy Blade aka Jeremiah Campbell, but we sometimes have ISSUES
Signiture Move: Shapeshift the heck out of there-Not the cliche’ bat thing but usually a pretty bird, though I was a scary raptor once. That was cool. Kill Highlights: I’m a lover, not a fighter, but don’t mess with my good shoes or my vintage purses and I might rip out your throat.
Enemies: Energy Vampires and their leader Simon Destiny. They tried to attach me to their energy sucking apparatus once. Also a vamp hunter named Westwood has a stake with my name on it. Jerry’s ex- Mara hates me too. Go figure.
Favorite Pastime? Shopping or snuggling up to the hot guy of the moment and it’s not always Jerry. My shapeshifter, former bodyguard Rafe Valdez floats my boat too.
Other facts: Glory’s loyal to her friends and they’re loyal to her so don’t be surprised if they show up to help in a smackdown. Fashion maven Florence da Vinci is sure to pop in and watch out for the chains on her Chanel bag, not to mention the steel heels on her Louboutins.
What-did you think all vamps were pale, thin and brooding? Don’t I wish.
Gloriana St. Clair is an eternally “full-figured” vampire-she just happened to be bloating when a sexy Scotsman sank his teeth into her. She and said Scot- Angus Jeremiah Campbell III, aka Jeremy Blade-have been on and off again for centuries, currently off. A couple hundred years has taught them how to press each other’s buttons-in good ways and bad.
Glory’s headed for Austin and a new business venture: Vintage Vamp’s Emporium. After all, she loves clothes, and she is an antique. Only problem is, there’s a billionaire techno-freak vampire hunter on the loose. Blade’s in total he- vampire mode, and wants Glory to move in with him so he can “protect” her. But it’s time for this vamp to explore her own powers
