Her interest is purely scientific
Cassandra Burton wants to study medicine, surgery, healing, and everything related to the human body and its mysteries—and she's willing to rob graves to do it! But a lady can meet dark and dangerous characters lurking around the cemetery. And who could be more fascinating than Rafael Villar, Lord Vampire of London? If she could study his physiology, she could learn so much that would help humans. After all, he’s immortal—and Cassandra is now his prisoner…
Until she gets close enough to touch
As if Rafael didn’t have enough to worry about, with a rebellion brewing and his allies out of reach, now he’s confronted by a beautiful, fearless lady who wants to heal the scars he's born for centuries. He can’t keep her, and he can’t let her go, and worst of all, he’s every bit as intrigued by her as she is by him.
Praise for One Bite Per Night:
“Solid writing, a tasty dash of originality, and realistic relationships that zing with sexual energy.” —Publishers Weekly
“Clutch the pearls, ladies. It’s wonderful.” —Lit Bites
The sure-footed third book in Ann's Regency-era vampire series (after One Bite per Night) is entertaining and interesting in its marriage of vampire lore with historical romance. Cassandra Burton, the young Dowager Countess of Rosslyn, wants to be a doctor. Denied entry to medical school, she stoops to grave-robbing to expand her anatomy training. She is caught by Rafael Villar, a vampire with a damaged arm. Rafe can't resist biting the alluring and provocative Cassandra, but he finds himself in deep trouble when it becomes clear she's immune to being hypnotized into forgetting their encounter. Now it's his duty to keep her prisoner until the ruling Elders decide if Cassandra will be killed or Turned. Meanwhile, she wins his heart while healing his injuries. By turns dark and sexy, this is a fine addition to the genre and solidly establishes Ann as a growing talent.
