Title: A Quick Bite
Series: Argeneau #1
Author: Lynsay Sands
Genre: Paranormal Romance / Vampires
That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau’s bed? He’s not dessert – he’s the main course!
Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there’s another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood…an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn’t hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?
Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger’s bedroom pretty quickly – once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That’s a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into…if he can just get Lissianna to bite.
Lissianna Argeneau has hemaphobia, she faints at the sight of blood. It’s not the worst of phobias, you’d think, but Lissi is a vampire, so this phobia makes her life extremely difficult. Vampires don’t feed the old-fashioned way anymore, they use bagged blood. But Lissi can’t stand the sight of it, so she has to ‘feed off the hoof’. She hates the hunt, let alone the dangers of it. It’s not easy to find someone healthy to feed off, someone who is not on drugs or alcohol.
So when Lissianna finds a hot man tied to her bed, she thinks he’s her birthday present from her mother.
Except, Dr. Gregory Hewitt is here to cure her phobia, not to be a dessert.
But when someone is that delicious and tempting like Greg, it is impossible to resist taking a quick bite.
I used to read a lot of PNR, and I probably would have liked it more years ago. Though the origin of the vampires is very interesting and unique, I expected more from the story: more humor, more steam, more action, and a much better developed romance: true life mates – oh, come on… haven’t we heard this enough? Of course, this book was published more than ten years ago, and by now the destined mate thing has got old.
All in all, it’s not bad, but I don’t think I’ll continue the series for now.
