Okay, I have to admit I passed over this book for a month because the thought of reading yet another ‘vampire’ romance novel kept me thinking it would be like going to the dentist for a gum scraping. Over time I thought: It’s a regency. How bad could it be. Boy was I wrong. “Bite Me Your Grace” wasn’t the standard vampire romance nor was it the stero-typical romance either. This is a unique blend of all things good between the two worlds.
Brooklyn Ann gave some serious thought into the hero Ian Ashton, Duke of Burnrath, aka Lord Vampire of London. Based on Dr. John Palidori’s “The Vampyre”, Ann incorporates real persons such as Palidori, Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” and of course Almack’s in an intriguing tale of a young women who is a social outcast within her class.
Written like a 1 hour t.v. drama, there’s mystery, mischief and of course some old fashion romance. If you read the Afterword, you’ll find some interesting historical information which Ann used to weave history and fiction. So don’t be like me, procrastinating on reading this due to a personal judgmental defect pertaining to [mainly] erotic vampire romances. Think of Brooklyn Ann in the same league as Shana Galen, Christina Dodd and Sophie Jordan.
