Bite Me, Your Grace by Brooklyn Ann + Featured Freebie

Bite Me, Your GraceEngland's "vampire craze" causes much vexation for the Lord Vampire of London, Ian Ashton. To save his reputation, Ian enlists aspiring authoress Angelica Winthrop without realizing she has hidden plans of her own.

Angelica Winthrop's life goal is to ruin her reputation, avoid marriage, and become a gothic authoress like her idol, Mary Shelley. To find inspiration for her new story, she breaks into the home of Ian Ashton, Duke of Burnrath, not knowing she will be coming up against the Lord Vampire of London. Romance sparks and reputations are at stake. But who knows the real difference between fact and fiction?

My Rating: 5/5

I loved this book! So amazing! Bite Me, Your Grace is a delightful blend of hot paranormal vampires and lovely historical romance.

I though this was a very interesting idea. I liked how the paranormal elements were seamlessly fit into the historical setting. And I loved how the author based much of the story on a real poem: The Vampyre. I had high expectations for this book and they were all met.

Angelica was a fun character. She wants to be a writer. Since her mother doesn't approve, she wants to ruin herself so that she can be left to her writing use her dowry to support herself. And, thus, how she ends up in a vampire's path. She was hilarious. The situations that she would get herself had be in stitches. But, she was a genuinely clever, strong, and lovely character. Even when she was surrounded by vampires, she refused to let anyone trample over her. She was very likable and a character anyone could support.

Ian was just perfect. He was a sexy vampire and a hot lord. Seriously, what more could you ask for? I loved him. Not only was he incredibly attractive, but he was also very sweet, strong, and a true leader. He's impossible not to fall for. 

Angelica and Ian were very sweet together. Misunderstandings kept that apart for a while, but they were reasonable about it, as well as forgiving-unlike in other romances. They also had their spicy moments, and those moments were HOT. Both sweet and spicy, they were an easy couple to support.

The plot of this book moves quickly and never drags. I was kept hooked the entire way and the thrills and secrets had me on the edge of my seat. The ending was so lovely-a completely sweet and perfect conclusion.

I loved Bite Me, Your Grace. This perfect is the perfect mix of paranormal and historical romance and one that I would recommend to any romance lover.

Featured Freebie:
Today, I have 2 books that sound lovely: Lucien's Fall by Barbara Samuel and The Six Month Marriage by Amanda Grange. Go forth and get them for free!

Lucien's Fall

Lord Lucien Escher is a renowed London rake who believes there is not a woman in the world who cannot be seduced--he is determined to prove it, come what may.

Madeline is determined to save her treasured ancestral home and has no use for love or the tricks of an unredeemable scoundrel. Against her better judgment, however, she is powerfully drawn to the elusive and dangerous Lucien, whose hard-hearted fa├žade hides a tragedy that is slowly devouring him from within.

As Lucien and Madeline circle each other in a magnetic play of desire and denial, their passion will rise to a crescendo of longing and sacrifice that will change their fates forever.

The Six Month Marriage
Unless Philip, Lord Pemberton, could arrange a six-month marriage he would lose his inheritance. But how could he find a respectable young lady to go along with such a scheme? 
Madeline Delaware was desperate to escape from her dissolute uncle and Philip's offer saved her from the fate her uncle had in store for her.

But the six-month marriage turned out to be far from the peaceful interlude that Madeline had envisaged. And although it was simply a convenient arrangement, she found it increasingly difficult to think of its end . . .
