'Never Been Bit' by Lydia Dare

I still think the cover is cheesy!!!!!

First thoughts after I finished: "I want a vampire like Alec! "
  "Ever since Sorcha Ferguson had met her first Lycan, she'd been determined to have one for her very own."p. 1
That first sentence totally drew me into the story and I knew right away that Sorcha was going to be a cheeky lass that I would like very much. This is the final installment in the Regency Vampire series and it was a perfect way to finish the vampire's tales. I loved the setting, characters, and the entire story. I think out of all of the vampires I found myself loving Alec the best. He had that vulnerable side to him and he let his guard down more than once with Sorcha. I enjoyed how she had her heart set on "owning" a lycan (werewolf) cracks me up to think she really wanted a wolf and not exactly the man! But I can't blame her there, as I certainly love my dogs by my side and the added benefits of them over let's husband! (they can't talk, have very few demands, and making dinner for the dogs is very easy!)

Recommend? Easily! This is a fun, engaging, and well-written romance trilogy. If you're looking for a book where you can just kick back, relax and let your imagination take over, then this one fits the bill!!!

  2. Totally agree that it would be more fun to have the wolf - less trouble than a man, anyway! :--)

  3. I agree about the cover, though the guy is kinda hot.

  4. I saw another cover (not the final one) of this one and that one I liked betetr

  5. Fantastic review that had me smiling all the way through!

  6. I'm afraid I have not developed a "taste" for vampires. I'll skip this one. Glad you enjoyed it though.

  7. I didn't think I liked vampires until I finished the first Sookie book. Now I'm a fan and I'll have to expand my horizons a little.
