HE’S LOST, TRAPPED, DOOMED FOR ALL ETERNITY…..
Rich, titled, and undead, gentleman vampyre James Maitland, Lord Kettering, fears himself 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 anything more than a man who sets her heart on fire……
First the writing team of Lydia Dare brought us four loveable Lycans (please do not call them werewolves Simon takes offense), now they bring us delectable vampyres in It Happened One Bite- the first book their new vampyre series. We also see the continuation of the coig, with Blaire Lindsay, the battle-born witch front and center in this book. I loved the character of Blaire and I have to say that so far she is my favorite heroine from Lydia Dare’s books, James was a rather interesting character as well. I have to say that each one of Lydia Dare’s books have intrigued and delighted me, and It Happened One Bite proves that this new vampyre series is just as delightful and intriguing as the Lycan series.
Please note that It Happened One Bite is the first book in Lydia Dare’s new vampyre series, and is a continuation of the Lycan series that came before, but IT IS A STAND ALONE READ. Although I will say that once you read this book you will want to read the ones that came before it!
