Publisher Description

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.

"The novel starts off a bit like the TV Series Tru Calling if you have ever watched it starring Eliza Dushku with Rachel a young 25 year old Night-shift worker at the local morgue. The other main star of the novel is Etienne -a 400 year old silver-eyed vampire whose always trying to be killed. The first encounter between these two is when Rachel , not feeling well -gets a body brought to the morgue of a gunshot victim . The victim is silver-eyed Etienne , he starts to sit up and this causes Rachel to think she is hallucinating and faints. The next time is when Etienne is brought into the morgue as what Rachel calls a "crispy critter"- a burnt victim . While doing her morgue-stuff on him , a Vampire hunter rushes in by the name of Pudgey/Pokey and whams an axe through Rachel. Etienne in debt to her , decides to turn her into one of them. Fast forward a couple of days and Rachel wakes and is told she is a vampire. It is at this moment the humour sets in as Rachel believes everything and I mean everything is a dream. Once Rachel realises that she has turned into a Vampire , its all downhill from there as the onyl experience and knowledge she has of Vampires have come from Books and Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Can Rachel accept the fact she has turned into a Vampire and her and Etienne work out their differences or is it going to take threats , kidnapping and a bridal shower for Rachel to accept her destiny. This is a fun Vampire story about the dysfunctional lives of the Argeneau family and their Vampire mishaps more than everytime involving mortals."

Quotes

  • “A wonderful addition to [Sands’] vampire series. It is a well-done prequel, the heroine’s problem is realistically depicted, the secondary characters are wonderful and the conversation is scintillating.”

    " This was the first I read. It was obvious that it didn't have to be read in order. The romance is great & the subtle interference of the mother in law was funny! Just cute and funny! "

    " Love Bites is the first book in the Argeneau Vampire series. These are light romances with a few great hot and steamy scenes, but a lot of mystery plot. Vampires are surviving members of Atlantis and their offspring. Atlantean scientists introduced nanos into the blood streams of fatally ill members of the society. The nanos were programmed to to use the host's blood to repair damage to the host and kill disease and then shut down. What the doctors didn't take into account was that the human body is always under attack by the sun, aging, etc., so the nanos never shut down, making their hosts virtually immortal. After the fall of Atlantis, the members who managed to escape could no longer keep their nanos fed by blood transfusions, and began to evolve, growing fangs, gaining improved senses, and the ability to read and control minds. All human minds are open to these vampires, (or immortals as they prefer to be called), all that is except one's lifemate. A lifemate is the one person who can't be read or controled by a particular immortal. He or she is the one person with whom another immortal can be completely relaxed. This series is about one particular family finding their lifemates while hunting down or being hunted by rogue vampires. (Those immortals who break vampire laws). A very original take on the vampire myth. Extremely entertaining and funny. (This is the first book Sands wrote for the series, but chronologically A Quick Bite actually comes first.) "

    " I just read it for the 2nd time and it was good again. Probably a 3.5 since it's not exactly deep, but the skill of the writing and characterization deserves more. She's a master of humorous romance writing, one of the beat I've ever read. I'd rank her with Nora Roberts non-thriller/dark romances for great characters and families you want to be a part of, but funnier. "

    " I really liked this book. I love Lynsay's theories on how and why there are vampires (Atlantis, Nanos, etc..) I love the characters, witty and real. This series is great I am on to the 4th book! If you like the ideas of vampires and like romance these are for you. Most series fizzle out after so many books, but Lynsay keeps it new and fresh! "

    " Decent read, but definitely a romance, just light fare and a nice escape. A "bad guy" is involved but dealing with it was so low key you barely notice. That alone kept it from rating it a four. "
