Publisher's Summary

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.

Bite into more tales of the Argeneau Vampires.

    "Better narrator but ..."

    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.

    Story
    "Light paranormal romance"

    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...

    "Etienne & Rachel were entertaining"


    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

    "NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A NEW IMMORTAL!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Love Bites to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed the audio edition of Love Bites better than the print version because Angela Dawe brought personalities to each character.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rachael seemed to be the most free.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When they were locked out behind Eitiennes home.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No

    If you could sum up Love Bites in three words, what would they be?

    Love the Argeneaus


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Etienne’s and Rachael's story was great


    What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love listening


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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


    Any additional comments?

    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 did not care much for the story"

    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.

    If you could sum up Love Bites in three words, what would they be?

    Great series. But they need to number the order. Hard to get them in the right order without the #s


    What other book might you compare Love Bites to and why?

    All of this series is basically the same.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    She had no inflections in her reading. It all ran together


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Etienne Argeneau’s 300 years of bachelorhood ends!"
    What did you love best about Love Bites?

    Nice light vampire with a twist storyline.... the humour was good too... Thomas was excellent!!!!


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    Angela did the females well - the males however I didn't enjoy as much... just didn't seem right...


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

    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!


    Any additional comments?

    I want to listen to the other books but I don't like Victoria's narration so it's putting me off a little...
