Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world - and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker . . . one who decided the best way to save my life was to take it.
Turns out my saviour was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now I've traded sweating over my thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan 'Lord o' the Manor' Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four hundred year old vampire, he has centuries' worth of charm, but unfortunately he also seems to expect my eternal gratitude - and servitude. Right . . .
But my burgeoning powers (all of a sudden, I'm surprisingly handy with some serious weaponry), an inconvenient sunlight allergy, and Ethan's attitude are the least of my concerns. Someone's out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches?
My initiation into Chicago's nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war - and there's going to be blood . . .
Some Girls Bite is the first book in the Chicagoland Vampire series. This is one paranormal/urban fantasy series that you don’t want to miss out on! It's written in the first person POV of our heroine.
Merit, and her roommate, Mallory, were such great female characters. Strong, real, and flawed; they were easy to relate to. They both had me laughing out loud like a nut while I read this book. Too many classic one-liners to name. If you love humor in your books, then you'll love Some Girls Bite.
Merit is bitten by a vampire against her will, and is thrust into a whole new world that she knows nothing about. She’s sent to the Cadogen House to learn about her new role in life, and what’s expected of her. Drinking blood is something she detests, but now needs.
The sexual tension in this book was off the charts. Throw in a healthy dose of jealousy, and a couple love triangles, and you are guaranteed to be glued to the pages. Ethan is the leader of the Cadogan House vampires, and yes, there are rival factions. They play a role later in the book when the suspense and danger begin to climb. Merit is attracted to Ethan, and knows he feels the same way about her. The fact he’s taken, makes her one very unhappy vampiress. She concentrates on her powers, and new role as a guard to Ethan. Merit is one kick-ass heroine!
For a fun, sexy read, with a full plot and great cast of characters, start reading the Chicagoland Vampire series right away!
