True love is at stake in this charming, debut romantic comedy.
Cassie Greenberg loves being an artist, but it’s a tough way to make a living. On the brink of eviction, she’s desperate when she finds a too-good-to-be-true apartment in a beautiful Chicago neighborhood. Cassie knows there has to be a catch—only someone with a secret to hide would rent out a room for that price.
Of course, her new roommate Frederick J. Fitzwilliam is far from normal. He sleeps all day, is out at night on business, and talks like he walked out of a regency romance novel. He also leaves Cassie heart-melting notes around the apartment, cares about her art, and asks about her day. And he doesn’t look half bad shirtless, on the rare occasions they’re both home and awake. But when Cassie finds bags of blood in the fridge that definitely weren’t there earlier, Frederick has to come clean...
Cassie’s sexy new roommate is a vampire. And he has a proposition for her.
"This debut romance by Jenna Levine is wonderfully weird and sexy as hell. The amount of care Frederick J. Fitzwilliam takes in figuring out what will get Cassie's blood pumping! (Not like that.) It's almost enough to make you want to scour Craigslist for your own potential boyfriend who'll be head over fangs for you. My Roommate is a Vampire is a whole vibe."—Alicia Thompson, national bestselling author of Love in the Time of Serial Killers
"Jenna Levine's sensational debut has everything I want in a romcom - delightfully wry humour, a warm heart, and an utterly adorable romance with the most dreamy hero ever to don a cravat.

"My Roommate Is a Vampire is a delicious, delightful love story - whimsical, magical, and hilarious, with enough heart to make readers cry and enough heat to make them melt. It's an ode to love in all its forms - romantic love, but also the love of friends, the love of art, and the process of learning to love yourself. Cassie is warm-hearted, chaotically horny, and so relatable, and Frederick J. Fitzwiliam is the exquisitely dressed cinnamon roll vampire of my dreams. This is an incredible debut, and I can't wait to read whatever story Levine tells next!"—Sarah Hawley, author of A Witch’s Guide to Fake Dating a Demon
"If the world is against Frederick J. Fitzwilliam, then I am against the world.

Don't miss the chance to sink your teeth into this!"—Thea Guanzon, author of The Hurricane Wars
