Jenny's review: Dark Dates by Tracey Sinclair

All Cassandra Bick wants is to be left to get on with doing her job. But when you’re a Sensitive whose business is running a dating agency for vampires, life is never going to be straightforward – especially when there’s a supernatural war brewing in London, a sexy new bloodsucker in town and your mysterious, homicidal and vampire hating ex-lover chooses this moment to reappear in your life…

Witty, sharp and entertaining, Dark Dates is a heady mix of vampires, witches and werewolves – with the occasional angel thrown in – and introduces Cassandra Bick, a likeable heroine destined to join the ranks of fantasy’s feistiest females.
Jenny's review:
Cassandra runs a party service for less than human types, her company is called Dark Dates. She sets people up with the humans they would like to meet, date, or use as donors. But someone wants her to stop, and it seems they are going to find her and sabotage the events that she is planning, along with trying to harm her. Lucky for Cassandra, she is a Sensitive and has a nonboyfriend in Cain (an Earthbound angel), who is ultimately there to protect her no matter what. Unfortunately, it does seem that someone wants to hurt her. So Cassandra must be strong to fight the evil that is hunting her, and try to figure out whom she is going to give her heart to. 
This was a fast moving, action packed read. It had all the elements of a romance with the action of a movie. A female lead that doesn’t realize how strong she is until she needs it! Great quick read for those sunny days at the beach or lake!
