One stolen kiss
When Vivian Stratford ruins her reputation by challenging a suitor to a duel, she is packed of to her great uncle's estate until the scandal blows over. On the way, her carriage is stopped by a rakish highwayman. Vivian unsheathes her rapier and duels with the thief. He steals a kiss before disappearing into the night.
Rogue vampire, Rhys Berwyn, robs carriages to help his mortal descendants pay the mortgage on their farm. Sadly, he cannot steal enough to pay off the massive debt owed to the Lord Vampire of Blackpool, and time is running out before his family will be evicted.
Will change her life forever…
When Rhys discovers that the beautiful swordswoman he encountered is none other than Blackpool's niece, he abducts her and holds her for ransom for the money to save the family farm.
While he keeps Vivian tucked away in a seaside cave, Rhys has trouble keeping his promise to leave his delectable hostage untouched.
He is a rogue vampire trying to help his mortal kin pay off the mortgage held by Lord Thornton. She has come to the country to stay with Lord Thornton, her uncle (who unbeknownst to her is a vampire and Lord of his territory) because she ruined herself when she challenged a suitor to a duel (with swords). He robbed her then he kissed her. He tried to kidnap her then she shot him. He kidnapped her anyway. No way this is turning into a love story, right?
Scandals With a Bite is one of my favorite series. It combines my two favorite romances – historical and vampire. This story has both an interesting story and interesting characters. There are lots of secrets and a surprise or two. Once I started reading it, I had a hard time putting it down.
