True love: good from the first bite….
Etienne Argeneau’s 300 years of bachelorhood were at an end. Either that, or he’d be forever alone. He could only turn one human in his lifetime, and most of his kind created a life mate. If he turned this stranger…. But what choice did he have? He had to help Rachel Garrett. The beautiful coroner had saved his life. To save hers, he would make her immortal.
To the last....
Rachel Garrett awoke surprised. All she’d wanted was to get off the night shift in the morgue; now here she was staggering to her feet naked and in a strange place. But everything would be alright. She’d just make like a bat out of.... Then she saw the man of her dreams emerging from his…coffin? And the look in his bright silver eyes said they’d be spending a lot of time together. She just hoped he tasted as good as he looked.

"Sands' deliciously sexy comedic series featuring the charismatic Argeneau clan is a delight." (Booklist)
The story is delightful, great fun, and exciting, and the narrator is much better than in "A Quick Bite." But one is spoiled with so many terrific narrators out there that one with weak characterization spoils a great story. Ms Dawe did get much better in the last few chapters. She will probably develop with more practice.
The Argenau family is a great cast of characters, makes for lighthearted and fun storyline. I do enjoy the author's take of what a vampire are.I really enjoy this book!
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: Los Angeles contemporary
Genre: Paranormal romance
This was a story about a vampire being hunted unsuccessfully by an unstable person, and a woman who was turned into a vampire against her will. The sanity-impaired guy keeps trying to kill Etienne who in a couple of instances shows up at the morgue for post-mortem examination. He heals himself before Rachel, the coroner on duty, can cut him in both cases. In the second episode, she saves her recently revived patient by taking an axe in the chest. She's dying quickly, so Etienne decides to change her into a vampire. The story revolves around catching the murderous flake, and Rachel dealing with her vampirism. There was no nail-biting suspense, but there were a few laughs. I did get pissed off at Rachel, because she was all up in arms about being changed against her will. What? She'd rather have bled out on the floor of the morgue? The story here was a high average if you like a light paranormal romance. Dracula this is not, so skip it if that is your preference.
The narration brought this to the high in average. Angela Dawe is uneven in her performances. Some are good, some not so much. This was one of the good ones.
In regards to this series, I do wish they'd find a good narrator and stick with her (or him) throughout. Ah well, that's not to be the case...
I like this one on audio about the same as reading it. This book is light and fluffy so it was easy and smooth. The Blurb is pretty accurate about how Etienne Argeneau found his lifemate in Rachel Garrett.
This 300 year old vampire met his match in the Night shift coroner and it was an entertaining journey. I will slowly make my way through this series
Words I live by: Charm is a glow within a woman that casts a most becoming light on others~Jason Mason Brown
It's well worth a credit. I've read this book many times and now bought it in audio form and quite enjoyed it.
I love how Lynsay Sands writes w/ a since of humor. Love the characters.
She wasn't amazing but better than most I've listened to.
Love really Bites (Wink, Wink)
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
I enjoyed the audio edition of Love Bites better than the print version because Angela Dawe brought personalities to each character.
Rachael seemed to be the most free.
When they were locked out behind Eitiennes home.
love to escape in to my Books, Historical, Highlander Scottish Romance , Mysteries & Suspense , Time Travel the Classics, Paranormal Romance
Love the Argeneaus
Etienne’s and Rachael's story was great
I love listening
I laughed and enjoyed the interaction between Etienne and Rachael and with all the characters of the Argeneau's I also enjoyed the confrontation with the murder crazy guy
I can listen to the Argeneau Vampires Family over and over again and because the story is lighthearted and fun to listen to I do not get tiered of it and enjoy it again and again
I might give another try and listen to book 3, but I just can't get into these series after "Nighthuntress" by Jeannine Frost. This book felt too cheesy and nothing exciting...
I love narration by Angela Dawe, it could she just grew on me after listening to Nalini Singh series. I don't like the narrators that exaggerate too much as the next narrator in book 3.
Great series. But they need to number the order. Hard to get them in the right order without the #s
All of this series is basically the same.
She had no inflections in her reading. It all ran together
I do not just want to read books; i wish i could climb in and live there.
Nice light vampire with a twist storyline.... the humour was good too... Thomas was excellent!!!!
Angela did the females well - the males however I didn't enjoy as much... just didn't seem right...
Etienne is such a lovely guy - kind, loving and yummy.... He loves Rachel and needs a little poke (a little help from Thomas) Rachel is attractive, brave and really deserves a guy like Etienne. Rachel just needs to get used to the blood drinking thing ...I loved Thomas with the straws he is so cheeky and cute.I also enjoy the family connection through these books its great!
I want to listen to the other books but I don't like Victoria's narration so it's putting me off a little...
