One Bite Per Night is a FANTASTIC romance and I couldn’t put this one down. It was phenomenal and I loved every moment. This just might be one of my favorite paranormal romances I have read this year, and I know this review won’t do this story any justice. I hope I can put into words how much I loved this story. It definitely pulled me right in, and the connection between Vincent and Lydia is powerful and intense.
The story starts with humor and witty come backs, and the you fall in love with the characters immediately. Vincent is a awesome hero….I could just kiss him all over I adored him so much. He is honorable, does have some issues thinking he is evil and all that, but he cares about others, and he is so sweet and protective with Lydia, you can’t help but be charmed by his manner. Lydia is strong and courageous, and doesn’t mind chasing the man she wants, even if that man tries to run at times from her. Lydia is strong willed and passionate about everything in her life, and will only settle for true love. I felt like I could relate to her in so many ways, and when a heroine is written well in the story it just adds a extra deep layer to that dessert. I truly loved the other characters as well, and it made me want to buy the first book because I truly admired this author’s storytelling abilities and to draw you into a story like a bee to honey, and will captivate your attention until the very last page.
Overall a charming romance, set in a historical period, with paranormal elements, and a mixture of humor, adventure, and complexities that blend in with the plot in a way that will have you head over heels in love. Swift moving and utterly mesmerizing!!! A story with a fresh voice and stunning descriptions. DELIVERS ALL THE WAY!!
