[ARC Review] - It Happened One Bite
Author: Lydia Dare
Series: Regency Vampyre
Genre: Historical Paranormal Romance
Release Date: March 1, 2011
I received this book for review from Sourcebooks.
Summary: HE'S LOST, TRAPPED, DOOMED FOR ETERNITY...
Rich, titled, and undead, gentleman vampyre James Maitland, Lord Kettering, fears himself doomed to a cold and lonely existence--trapped for decades in an abandoned castle. Then beautiful Scottish witch Blaire Lindsay arrives, and things begin to heat up considerably.
UNLESS HE CAN PERSUADE HER TO SET HIM FREE...
Feisty Blaire Lindsay laughs off the local gossip surrounding her mother's ancestral home--stories of haunting cannot scare off this battle-born witch. But when she discovers the handsome prisoner in the bowels of the castle, Blaire has no idea that she has unleashed more than a man who sets her heart on Fire.
Thoughts: Blaire Lindsay is visiting her mother's ancestral home in the Highlands for the first time. She believes it's a waste of time, but goes with her brothers anyway. She soon discovers a beautiful gentleman, James Maitland trapped in the castle. He lights her fire in more ways than one - but she has no idea how dangerous he can really be.
I loved James & Blaire's journey, it was a steamy and dangerous adventure that included a history that goes back to the current coven's mothers. I especially liked Blaire, she's my kind of heroine. She is fierce, independent and what ever you do, don't call her a lady. No sir, she is a warrior through and through, and ready for any battle.
It Happened One Bite was a fantastic read. First Ms. Dare gave us Lycans and now it's the vampire's turn. They are just as sensuous and delectably addicting as the Lycans. If you've loved Ms. Dare's other books, you won't want to miss this one.
Score: 4 Stars
