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?

    "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.

    "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... :)

    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!

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

    Complexed, Entertaining, Original


    What does J. D. Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was wonderful. Made the characters stand out better then others I've listened to.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very well written love story with some good vampire characters. Good interplay between all the cast members. Even though this may be the first book of a series, it is a self-contained story. I can see where other characters can play off this book and have their own stories written. I love the HEA concept and what lengths people or vampires will go to insure the safety of their loved one or true mate. I loved the concept that all children born from vampires have the choice to either stay human as there are born or become a vampire. New and very original concept in a vampire book. I was given an audible book by the author thru a book party. This is one of the first audible books that I felt was done very well by the narrator. Most could use two voices, one man and one woman. This narration did not need that.

    Would you listen to Honeymoon Bite again? Why?

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


    Have you listened to any of J. D. Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I listen to JD, but it won't be my last!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were too many to mention, cannot single out just one.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt their emotions swirling around me as the narrator worked his way through chapter after chapter of this fantastic story. I actually think I swooned!

    "Love me some 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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Honeymoon Bite to be better than the print version?

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


    What did you like best about this story?

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


    Have you listened to any of J. D. Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

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


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.
