One Bite Per Night by Brooklyn Ann

One Bite Per Night

(Scandals with Bite #2)

by Brooklyn Ann

He wanted her off his hands... Now he'll do anything to hold on to her ...Forever.

Vincent Tremayne, the reclusive "Devil Earl," has been manipulated into taking rambunctious Lydia Price as his ward. As Lord Vampire of Cornwall, Vincent has better things to do than bring out an unruly debutante.

American-born Lydia Price doesn't care for the stuffy strictures of the ton, and is unimpressed with her foppish suitors. She dreams of studying with the talented but scandalous British portrait painter, Sir Thomas Lawrence. 

But just when it seems her dreams will come true, Lydia is plunged into Vincent's dark world and finds herself caught between the life she's known and a future she never could have imagined.

I was very happy to see the second book in the Scandals with Bite series. I read the first one, Bite Me, Your Grace, last year and enjoyed it very much. I had snarky good times while I read it. As an artist myself, I had a great time reading about Lydia's art. Could imagine her paintings very well from the descriptions offered by Ms. Ann.

Vincent agrees to take on the job as Lydia's guardian because her grandmother is horrible. She doesn't want Lydia to over-shadow her "true" granddaughter. She just wants her gone. Vincent takes on the challenge to launch Lydia well, and to find her a "better" husband than the Duchess finds for Lydia's cousin.

Because he really doesn't want her around very much. She could stumble upon his secret, that he's a vampire, and that would be bad. But there's something about her, isn't there. She's just so sweet, and pretty, and smart...but NO, he must not fall in love!

Yes, we know how this is going to go, don't we? As Vincent fights with himself, all broody-boy that he is, there are a lot of fun characters surrounding them. Ian and Angelica from the first book are there. Vampire seamstresses, pugilists, and a shifty artist make for fun reading.

The vampire world that Ms. Ann has created is fun and I look forward to more!

Thank you, NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca, for giving me the opportunity to read One Bite Per Night.
