Publisher's Summary

Anne caught her husband cheating with the maid of honor before their wedding cake was cut. She decided to take her planned and paid for honeymoon in Tuscany, alone. On the evening of what was to be her wedding night, she gets bitten by a female vampire.

Marcus Monteleone has waited 300 years to find his fated female, only to discover her dying in his arms. He saves Anne's life by turning her, and then works to gain her trust, to cope with being a newly-formed golden vampire.

But when Anne finds out Marcus has not been completely truthful about his past, she vows to live as a human, and shuns the vampire world. Alone and unprotected, she falls prey to the very villainess who took her human soul, and who now takes the only man she’s ever loved.

Which lover will have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the other before they both are lost?

    "Get the shower ready and put it on COLD !!"
    Any additional comments?

    Let me just say get your shower ready, put it on COLD and be ready !! This book is full of Hot Sex - you've been warned... I loved how the vampires are different in this story they are not your average burn in the sun, twinkle like Twilight’s Edward and go around wreaking tons of havoc around the world. Anne is not a vampire slayer in this book which I also liked. I actually even like how Anne becomes a vampire...

    How Anne reacts and what she does after becoming a vampire are very well written and you can feel what she is going through as she changes and no it isn’t rip their heads off and drain all their blood leaving behind a slew that mangled dead bodies either. I like how Marcus comes into her life from all of this to guide her for reasons I wont tell (spoiler lol) but like a typical man forgets that women need to know everything and you cant keep parts of it out so yeah he mucks that up. But I promise all will be alright...

    The sex scenes are truly amazing.. they are super Hot – nuff said there right... But I must say that with J. D. Hart's sexy voice one can't help but Drool, a lot...

    The ending had me on the edge of my seat I was like OMG no way this can not be happening but it was and well all I can say is hurry and get the book and find out what happens to Anne and Marcus... :)

    Story
    "Not the usual but I loved it the same!"
    What did you love best about Honeymoon Bite?

    It's different to my usual SEAL books from Sharon's mighty pen but I enjoyed it all the same! There was a lot of information in there which I felt needed more pages to delve deeper into each one, but I'm guessing that's where book two - Mortal Bite will lead me! I only like a few of the Vampire stories like Tina Folsom's Scanguards and obviously the Twilight Saga, but I'm glad to say that Sharon didn't disappoint in wetting my appetite with her rendition of the immortal world!

    I really am looking forward to the second in the series as I now need to know how this continues.

    It's not so easy to change from one topic to another but Sharon is obviously versatile enough to pull it off!


    What about J. D. Hart’s performance did you like?

    Again and again JD gives an amazing performance. He's not just a narrator, he's an actor through and through and he lives it through his portrayal of the characters.

    I've grown accustomed to his voice and as soon as the reproduction begins I'm transported into the scene and am a silent member of the audience enjoying the unfolding of yet another really good story.

    I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.

    "Another Series to add to my collection!!"

    I loved this story. It is a little different take on the vampire but I loved it all the same. The narrator has a very sexy voice and did well with the character voices. This story was easy to follow and hard to put down!

    Yes! I would listen to it again and again just to hear JD's voice as he portrays Marcus!

    If you could sum up Honeymoon Bite in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, awesome, true love story


    What did you like best about this story?

    A very different vampire story, lots of twist I didn't see coming and a HEA :D


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Many scenes caught my attention, but I think at the end where Marcus and Ann were in the vineyard is the happiest.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love is powerful and always wins!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the storyline, very different from any others in the vampire genre, the story didn't stop, no awkward or blah moments. It kept me listening waiting to find out what happened next. Very emotional, it was an emotional roller coaster ride. I laughed, I sure cried, I got mad too :D Loved the narrator's voice, I call it the chameleon voice. Doing all those accents, personalities and genders speaks of talent. Thank you for a great experience.

    Not better... the book is fabulous, but the audible just adds to it and makes it even more powerful

    I have been a PNR fan from way back... Ms. Hamilton makes the story and characters truly believable.

    I think that JD Hart does an amazing job or narrating for Sharon. He brings the books and stories to life!!.

    There are many points in the book that moved me... both to tears and laughter. Loved this series and can't wait for the next issue.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Hamilton is an extremely gifted author. Those that have not read her books are definitely missing out. I highly recommend anything Ms. Hamilton writes.

    "A NON STOP FANGTASTIC PRN LOVE STORY"

    This book is why I never get bored with Vampires - there's always a different 'version' of them waiting to be discovered and, with this new series, you're introduced to a fascinating Vampire world to get lost in and be captivated by.

    As Anne comes to terms with her new husband's adultery on their wedding day she runs - runs from the pain, the humiliation, the sorrow but little does she know she's running into a whole new future. Handsome, sweet and loveable Vampire Marcus is about to give up on ever finding his fated female when he suddenly sees Anne however life is about to play a cruel trick on him and, just when he thinks he has everything, the cruelest of tricks is yet to come.

    This is an emotional roller-coaster ride as you follow their tumultuous romance that has lots of drama, suspense, lies, plot twists, interesting and likeable secondary characters, instant attraction and sexual awareness, a tender touching romance, sex, sacrifice, heartache, character development, scorned lovers and secrets. Secrets, or maybe just 'undivulged forgotten truths', are eventually revealed that will have devastating heartbreaking results for the lovers and, when the cat's out and Marcus is left holding an empty bag...... I was left holding the tissues!!

    Narrator did an excellent job of providing swoon-worthy Italian accents and giving the rest of the characters great voices too which made the listening experience more enjoyable.

    Worth a credit? Whilst this is a really entertaining, unpredictable and captivating listen, there were a few actions that didn't quite make sense, I felt the story jumped ahead of itself resulting in missing 'bits' of information and I would have liked a more descriptive story to draw me into the scenes more. However, these are small issues that didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of this new Vampire species, or the book that housed them. So creditworthy, oh boy is it ever a.... YAYE & a YES and I'll eagerly be watching out for book 2.
