I absolutely love anything Regency, and when I read the summary for It Happened One Bite I was very much looking forward to getting stuck into this Regency vampire tale.
The story opens with our heroine, Blaire’s Mum casting a spell on the hero, James. A vision has forewarned that he will be a danger to her daughter and so like any good Mum she and her coven puts James into a cursed sleep.
Twenty years later, Blair is all grown up and after discovering a sleeping man in her brother’s newly inherited castle, she awakens James from his magical slumber. Blair is a ‘Battle Born’ witch and whilse she thinks she can handle anyhting, this is one situation that might be over her head! But James is the perfect vampire gentleman and vows to protect her.
There is a mystery here, we find out James has had two vampires looking for him for many years, and the other mystery is why Blair’s Mum imprisoned James into a slumber in the first place. We know it’s because of a vision but we don’t find out until the end.
The characters are very likeable, and their is a good strong chemistry between the two leads. Blair is very feisty, and can create fireballs from thin air – how cool is that?! James really is a gentleman, and his vampire side is really endearing rather than the stereotypical Alpha Vamps we know (and love) already.
I really enjoyed this, but the conclusions of the mysteries felt somewhat lacking. While it reads at a good pace, there were a couple of places that seemed to drag too. One of the main things for me though was while I really liked James, his friend that appears in here almost stole the show from him! But I do think when we come to read his book it will be brilliant! This was my first Lydia Dare romance, but I know it will not be my last because I enjoyed her writing and the whole story was very heartwarming.
A romantic and endearing story. The characters journey is really lovely to read and to experience, and their love and romance is very heartwarming and gave me warm fuzzies! I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series!
