Argeneau Vampire #1

Love Bites
by Lynsay Sands

'Kill Me To Save Me'

There is a crazy man on the loose. He stalks the night with guns, and knives, and an axe. He believes vampires roam the night, and is determined to destroy them; or join them if they'll have him. But what kind of idiot believes in vampires.

Working in a morgue was not the best way to have an active social life, especially when working the night shift. Rachel had been working the night shift for a long time, but just as she was about to see the light at the end if the night shift, something very bad happens. Rachel had thought she would rather die than be stuck on the night shift forever, but when that becomes her only option is she still so sure?

Etienne has been under a lot of strain lately. Someone has been trying to kill him. Actually someone had already killed him, twice, and they were still not giving up. It had been a close call both time, and both times he had been saved by a woman working in the morgue. But when her life is under threat because of him, should he give up is one chance for love to save her?

In Love Bites three lives will change forever under the actions of one mad man. Things seem to go from bad to worse to better to so much better to bad again and then to great. A story of honour and love, where vampires are not so much the walking soulless, bloodsucking, undead. Well, yes they do drink blood but from wine glasses and blood bags and not sucked from helpless mortals.

There are some good ideas in this story including the origin of the Argeneau vampires, which is original and creative, as is the science behind the 'curse' of the vampires. However to me this would have been a more intriguing story if it had focused a little less on the pleasures of the two main characters.
