Her father, North American head honcho vampire, has threatened a chilling or else if she "accidentally" helped a wolf again, especially since they're at war. But she's tempted by the sexy wolf. And his deadly blood calls to her in a way that should set off warning bells...
A promise to his brother in arms obliges Lexan Dimitrov to rescue the aristocrat vampire before her family discovers her secret—a secret Vee herself isn't even aware of. What he didn't expect was to find her sexy-as-hell. He's not into vamps, yet the inescapable heat building between them is a delicious temptation guaranteed to end in total disaster.
Vee is the only daughter of the North American chief vampire and has always butted heads with her cold father. Reluctantly engaged as part of a political alliance Vee has managed to continue working as a veterinarian but has plans to disappear. When a wounded wolf appears in her surgery, it's the worst possible timing as Vee needs to go home but her instincts betray her. Is that really the King of the wolves and just why does Vee feel all manner of desires around him? Vampires and wolves are enemies and yet Lexan made a promise and it's one he's determined to keep, but he had no idea just what he was walking into!
The Way You Bite had a really different feel to it which is unusual in paranormal romance. A war has raged between the two species and for vampires just being seen with any of the wolves is tantamount to treason which means death. So, a heroine who tries so hard to help whilst keeping her head down worked for me. Plus, she's not adverse to using whatever it takes to survive and I really liked her plucky attitude especially when it came to dealing with her rather nasty fiancé.
What added to the fun was Lexan and his somewhat antiquated ways which allowed the author to inject humour. Lexan might trust those closest to him but he doesn't trust the vampires as their political machinations and underhand dealings are putting his species in danger and then there's the creeping disease that shouldn't affect wolves but does!
I'd like to read more set in this world as Vee has her Aunt Carol on speed dial and she's a very interesting character. We also meet Trace (Vee's brother) who also shares a connection to the wolves that you won't believe; and speaking of wolves they certainly stole the show from the vampires. Yes, I enjoyed this book, although perhaps Vee was a tad just too incredulous towards the end although I understood the author didn't want any sort of typical mating as in you are mine and off we go!
Yes, I would happily read more by this author and look forward to seeing what else she dreams up.
I received a copy of this that I've voluntarily read and I believe these thoughts and comments are my honest and fair opinion.
