Live bait makes all the difference. Sent on a mission to lure Budapest's vampire Overlord into a trap, Connie Bence is instead caught red-handed by the dark Casanova. Her employer has concrete proof of the dubious leader's misdeeds but she is surprised when this ruthless killer, Rurik, offers her protection and rescues her from his own kind. It plants seeds of doubt in her mind and she begins to question his guilt. Now she is thrown into his world where blackmail determines her every move....

What disappointed you about BAIT?

The narration makes the book. I think if the narrator is good you can listen to almost anything.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer O'Donnell?

As I said in my review for "Catch" I think Kristine Hvam did an excellent job with the Jane Yellowrock series and I think she would have been great for these books.

Any additional comments?

Only paid 1.99 each for Bait and Catch and not sure they were worth even that with the horrible narration.

Hunger burns in Connie Bences' soul -she craves the blood of her vampire lover, Rurik, but it's not satisfying her needs anymore. It's driving her insane. Desperate to find help, Rurik brings her to Rio De Janeiro where Tane rules the vampire nation. The back-stabbing vampire almost killed her and Rurik when they'd first met, then used them to obtain his crown. She would rather stake him, but the small drop of Nosferatu blood he'd forced her to drink in Budapest is blooming into a bond, one which ties her life to his.

Would you try another book from Annie Nicholas and/or Lauren Sweet?

I have listened to 2 hrs so far and am having a really really hard time getting anything of the story line because I can't stand the Narration. Lauren Sweet is sooooo stilted and monotone.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lauren Sweet?

Khristine Hvan does a really good job with the Jane Yellowrock series and I think she could have done a really good job with these books also.

Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I love this series!! It is so nice to listen to a book without all of the swearing that is added to other books and to not have all of the explicit sex scenes. This books are very easy to listen to, I have purchased all of the series from audible and am on my last book that is available. Very sad to not have another one right now.

What did you like best about this story?

Not a lot of swearing and explicit sex!!!!!
