[ARC Review] - Never Been Bit

Title: Never Been Bit
Author: Lydia Dare
Series: Regency Vampyre
Genre: Historical Paranormal Romance
Release Date: September 1, 2011

I received this book for review from Sourcebooks.

Summary:  The glittering world of high society is the playground for the rich, titled, and reluctantly undead...

Alec MacQuarrie's after-life has become an endless search for pleasure in an effort to overcome his shame and despair. Wandering through the seedy world of London's demimonde, he's changed into a dark and fearsome creature even he doesn't recognize.

But the ton is no match for one incorrigible young lady...
After watching each of her coven sisters happily marry, Sorcha Ferguson is determined to capture a supernatural husband of her very own. Then she finds herself embroiled in an atrocious scandal and has to bring to heel more mystical gentlemen than she knows what to do with.

Over his dead body is Alec going to allow this lovely, radiant innocent to throw herself away on an unworthy cad, but that leaves him responsible for her, and he's the worst monster of them all.

Thoughts: The vampyre tells her to stay away from the lycan. The lycan tells her to stay away from the vampyre. What is a girl to do? Neither of course.

Sorcha & Alec first appeared in Tall, Dark and Wolfish. While at the time I didn't give much thought on Alec - Sorcha stood out for me. She's absolutely charming. Innocent and sweet. And bless her heart she just wants a a lycan of her own. She is blunt and determined, which made me love her even more.  But fate had a different type of supernatural in mind for her.  Sorcha and recently turned vampyre, Alec make the perfect pairing.  Never Been Bit is a wonderfully engaging read, a great addition to the series.  I loved it and was sorry when it ended. Alec and Sorcha's story is both adorable and quite sensual.  I'm looking forward to more stories set in this world.

Score: 4 Stars
