True love: good from the first bite . . .
Etienne Argeneau's three hundred years of bach-elorhood were at an end. Either that, or he'd be forever alone. He could turn only one human in his lifetime, and most of his kind created a life mate. If he turned this stranger . . . But what choice did he have? He had to help Rachel Garrett. The beautiful coroner had saved his life. To save hers, he would make her immortal.
. . . to the last
Rachel Garrett awoke surprised. All she'd wanted was to get off the night shift in the morgue; now here she was staggering to her feet naked and in a strange place. But everything would be all right. She'd just make like a bat out of— Then she saw the man of her dreams emerging from his . . . coffin? And the look in his bright silver eyes said they'd be spending a lot of time together. She just hoped he tasted as good as he looked.
SWM - "Lucern." Successful biographer of family, books recently categorized as "paranormal romance." Something of a recluse. Hates crowds, aggressive women. Doesn't like sunbathing, garlicky dinners or religious symbols. Likes old-fashioned values; spicy Mexican dishes; warm, nice-smelling neck; and plump red lips. Stronger than ten men and can vanish in the blink of an eye. Currently unaware he's seeking a woman to share eternity.
SWF - "Kate C. Leever." Newest editor of Romance at Roundhouse Publishing. Perky, fun. Has recently discovered a legacy author just dying to be broken out. In fact, her career could take off from it. (The tall, dark, handsome writer just needs to be taken to several romance conventions and introduced to his fans...and stopped from acting so strange in public.) Dislikes "difficult, rude, obnoxious, pig-headed writers." Currently unaware she's met the man of her wildest dreams.
It bites: New York hotels cost an arm and a leg, and Terri had flown from England to help plan her cousin's wedding. The new in-laws offered lodging. But they were a weird bunch. There was the sometimes-chipper-sometimes-brooding Lucern, and the wacky stage-actor, Vincent. (She couldn't imagine Broadway casting a hungrier singing-and-dancing Dracula.) And then there was Bastien. Just looking into his eyes, Terri had to admit she was falling for him - someone even taller, darker and hungrier than the other two. She was feeling a mite peckish herself. And if she stayed with him, those blood-sucking hotel owners wouldn't get to her!
These books were hilarious! I don't know why it took me so long to get around to reading them, after loving A Quick Bite. But I think I kinda made up for that by binge reading the next 3 books in this series and absolutely loving them!
Love Bites was of a similar format to A Quick Bite, a vampire, and a human that finds out about vampires pretty quickly. Single White Vampire and Tall, Dark & Hungry took a different approach, at least, they didn't have a bad guy to face, and the humans didn't get turned during their story. So yeah, a bit different!
I enjoyed how they all revealed it, and as Bastien puts it, it's easier to do when it's not personal, that depth of caring for the other person. Because Etienne messed it up for Rachel, and so on, so forth. So yeah, that was really funny!
I enjoyed these couples a lot, they had problems like the whole vampire thing, and poking fun at it, because of the unique orgin story of vampires. And just the stories that Lynsay Sands writes, I think is almost incapable of humour. Almost, because there's always situations where it isn't appropriate. Yeah.
Loved these books so much, and I can't wait for more! They're just so darned good!
