But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?
Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly - once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into . . . if he can just get Lissianna to bite.

PNR is my prefered genre, but I also enjoy any lighthearted, funny, steamy stories. Listening to books helps me to do mindless housework.
This is actually the 1st book in the series even though Audible has "Love Bites" as book 1. I listened to "Love Bites" first which has spoilers for this book in it :( Go to Lynsay Sands website for the correct order of this series.
I completely agree w/ the other reviews about the narrator, but I had to listen to the book since I enjoyed "Love Bites" (which has a different narrator) & decided that I wanted to continue w/ the series. To me she sounds like she's trying waaaay to hard to have a sexy, sultry voice and it just comes across as annoying. Her charater voices were just ok for me, I enjoyed the narrator in "Love Bites" version of Thomas much better. Unfortunatly alot of the humor in the story is lost due to the narration, a vampire that faints at the sight of blood, come on, that's FUNNY, not sexy and should have been read that way.
If you enjoy romantic vampire novels (although these aren't technially vampires since they aren't dead or undead) that are amusing, I do recommend this book, if you can stand the narrator, listen w/ the hope the next book has a better narrator.
The Narrator did a far better job when she was doing the guy voices...all the girl voices just annoyed me to no end... trying to be all light and airy did not work the way I think she was going for.
As for the story...i found it funny and I like premise of this vampire family but I think I will just read them and avoid further ones in this series if they have the same narrator. Pity
I agree with the reviews. I love the series but the narrator...just buy the books.
The story was 4 stars but the narrator was worse than horrible. I forced myself to listen because I paid for the audiobook. I will NEVER buy another audiobook narrated by this woman. Avoid this narrator at all costs.
I found the story lacking in the ability to engage my attention fully and as a result as I was listening and doing chores - if I missed stuff I did not feel the need to back up the book. The characters and story could have used developing and found it quite predictable at times though I did like the overall consept of the story. I am not sure if I would seek out another of her books to read.
As for the narrator, I thought she did a good job of bringing unique voices to the different characters.
There are a lot "paranormal romances" nowadays. Some are oriented towards more action, mythology, mystery and fantasy and there are those firmly on the romance side with just a touch of the paranormal. I have to say this series is definitely for the fan of romance and not of urban fantasy. I like the series. They are light, funny and nice cozy reading. What sets this series apart from the other similarly premised books are the likable vampire family members and the total quirky comedic moments. This first book, not as much but the I think the 2nd to the 4th books were laugh out loud funny at some parts. Anyway it was nice to re-read the book as an audiobook.
This is the best book in the series to date and I've listen to it 4 times already. The narrator dibn't bother me that bad, and she is a whole lot less annoying then some of the others in this series.
This was an excellent book, it has a wonderful love story in it along with some action! I would definatly recommend this to vampire story lovers!!!The vampirism theory is very unique and intersting!
But.... the narrator killed it for me, hence the low star rating. Sorry but the long pauses and drawn out words made the story very hard to listen to. This book would have been better as a read than a listen. This will unfortunately deter me from buying others in the series with this narrator.
