There's plenty of exciting new things to discover in the worlds of Sara Reinke! Visit my website at and check out the stunning cover for my upcoming release, Dark Hunger, Book Two in The Brethren Series coming this fall from Kensington/Zebra Books. In this exciting sequel to Dark Thirst, Tessa Noble-Davenant is a vampire who will do anything to protect her brother, Brandon -- even if that means traveling across the country with Rene Morin. A cynical, brooding, yet startling sexy vampire, Rene seems to take pleasure in finding fault with Tessa's every move. Despite this, a sensual attraction begins to develop between the two, one to which neither can afford to succumb. Rene and Tessa are being followed -- and a single misstep will put them at the mercy of forces more dark and powerful than even they can fight. If they are caught, the ecstasy of their newfound love will be matched only by the agony of its loss...

I'm also pleased to announce the official release date for Dark Hunger. Look for it to hit bookstore shelves nationwide September, 2008. (Not July, 2008, as I'd originally anticipated.)

In the meantime, why not pick up a copy of the book that kicks the series off -- and into high gear! In Dark Thirst, Brandon Noble is one of the Brethren, an ancient clan of ruthless vampires. Horrified by his birthright, Brandon shuns the ritual of the first kill, earning his family's lasting wrath. When he finds love with a human woman named Angelina -- forbidden among the Brethren -- his fate is sealed. Can Brandon protect Angelina from his enemies -- and his own dark thirsts?

Dark Thirst has been hailed as a "unique twist on the vampire legend" and "a fascinating and unique romance" by Romantic Times Book Reviews magazine and "a vivid debut" and "a masterful read" by reviewers at PNR Reviews.

Dark Thirst also recently earned 5 out of 5 Angels and a Recommended Read designation at Fallen Angel Reviews! "Kudos to Sara Reinke for her unique and thoroughly compelling vampire world," says reviewer Bella. "I read this book in one sitting, unable to tear myself away... Dark Thirst has it all: internal and external conflict, heated passion, suspenseful plot and vibrant secondary characters... [a] fabulous page-turner!"
