ONE BITE PER NIGHT is Book two in Brooklyn Ann's Scandals
With Bite series. This is a paranormal historical
series about vampires. ONE BITE PER NIGHT puts an
interesting twist to the standard guardian trope. In this
story, the guardian is the Lord Vampire of Cornwall.
One thing I really like about ONE BITE PER NIGHT is the
pace that the romance between Vincent and Lydia develops
at. This is a great book for fans who don't like it when
the hero and heroine become sexually intimate two seconds
after meeting. There is sizzle and there are plenty of sexy
scenes in ONE BITE PER NIGHT, but Vincent and Lydia spend
time getting to know and like each other before that. I
loved that Vincent admires Lydia for who she is, and
doesn't look down on her for enjoying unladylike pursuits.
She feels free to be herself around him. The chemistry
between the two is great and doesn't feel forced. I like
how caring Vincent is when it comes to Lydia, even though
he is normally such a powerful and imposing figure.
In addition to the romance itself, I like the supporting
characters in ONE BITE PER NIGHT as well. After being
rejected, sight unseen, by her grandmother Lydia gains a
family in Vincent's friends like Ian and Angelica. I like
the easy feeling of comradery between Lydia and Angelica.
The friendship adds some lighter moments to the story. I
also liked the subplot involving Thomas Lawrence and the
Siddons sisters. I wouldn't mind seeing Sally and Maria
Siddons in future stories. I was worried at first that
their involvement in ONE BITE PER NIGHT would be more
sinister, but they are interesting and fun characters.
ONE BITE PER NIGHT is an exciting story with steamy romance
with some gothic elements. I look forward to future books
to see what's in store for other supporting characters like
the dark, dangerous, and delicious Rafe Villar.
He wanted her off his hands... Now he'll do anything to
hold on to her ...Forever.
Vincent Tremayne, the reclusive "Devil Earl," has been
manipulated into taking rambunctious Lydia Price as his
ward. As Lord Vampire of Cornwall, Vincent has better things
to do than bring out an unruly debutante.
American-born Lydia Price doesn't care for the stuffy
strictures of the ton, and is unimpressed with her foppish
suitors. She dreams of studying with the talented but
scandalous British portrait painter, Sir Thomas Lawrence.
But just when it seems her dreams will come true, Lydia is
plunged into Vincent's dark world and finds herself caught
between the life she's known and a future she never could
