Dating the Undead by Juliet Lyons
Expected Publication: May 2nd, 2017
From Goodreads:

For those mortals wanting to get up close and personal with the beautiful undead, there's...

V-DATE, THE UNDEAD DATING SERVICE

Silver Harris is done with clingy men—maybe men altogether. But when she shares a toe-curling kiss with a sexy Irish vampire on New Year's Eve, she decides maybe it's human men she's done with. Silver turns to the popular vampire dating site, V-Date. When the undead gentlemen come calling, soon she's in over her head. And her mysterious hottie is nowhere to be found...

Logan Byrne can't get that sassy redhead out of his head—or that kiss! When his boss assigns him to spy on V-Date members, he meets Silver again. Turns out, the police are recruiting humans to snitch on vampires through the dating site. As the snark and sparks fly, feelings between Silver and Logan grow deep. Logan isn't sure he can go through with his mission to make Silver forget everything she knows about vampires...and betray her.

But in the tight-knit London community of centuries-old vampires, history and grudges run deep and dating the undead can be risky business.
