Chivalry is far from undead...
Matthew Halkett, Earl of Blodswell, is one of the few men in the town who can claim to be a knight in shining armor- because that's precisely what he was before being turned into a vampyre. When he spies a damsel in distress in the midst of a storm in Hyde Park, his natural instinct is to rush to her aid...
But not every woman needs to be rescued...
Weather-controlling witch Rhiannon Sinclair isn't caught in a storm-she's the cause of it. She's mortified to have been caught making trouble by the imposing earl, but she doesn't need any man-never has, and is sure she never will. But when Rhiannon encounters Matthew again, her powers go awry and his supernatural abilities run amok. Between the two of them, the town is thrown into an uproar. There's never been a more tempestuous scandal...
In the Heat of the Bite is an intensely romantic read- the second installment in Lydia Dare's Regency Vampyre trilogy. I haven't read the first book, but now I will (and I can't wait for the third!) Don't get me wrong though, this is a magnificent stand alone novel. I really buzzed right through this book. Lydia Dare's writing is fresh and fun.
I loved the characters, they are incredibly engaging and likeable. Dare gives you everything you want in a paranormal romance... witches, vampires, humor and passionate romance. The plot doesn't leave anything to be desired either. There is a flawless balance of suspense, hilarity and chemistry. Those that already love this series will not be disappointed with In the Heat of the Bite. So, paranormal romance junkies- go buy this one!
