But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?
Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly - once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into . . . if he can just get Lissianna to bite.

Although not published in order, this is the first installment of the Argeneau Vampires series. A great start to a well loved series - great story line, sexy interplay between the characters, plenty of laugh-out-loud-so-everyone-stares-at-you moments and an ending that makes you want to listen to the next book. I'd easily give it 5 stars BUT Victoria McGee has to be the WORST narrator ever! Sounding more like a cliched voice-over for a 1970's porn movie, she has no inflection, all her characters sound the same and she speaks at about half speed. If there was another version of this I'd snap it up like a shot, but we're stuck with boring Victoria. It is a reflection on how good the books are that I'd rather just put up with her than miss out on a cracking good listen.
I gave this book a good few hours but it just got too cringe-worthy. The Character definition is poor - lots of characters introduced in a short space of time with nothing really to tell them apart. The Author keeps describing the lead character as 'smart and intelligent' but considering she's supposed to be centuries old she's quite the opposite, silly, stupid and a bit wet around the ears.
This book had so much potential, put it is predictable and immature.
I had looked forward to this series because it sounded quite promising but I must admit that I gave up after 2 hours of listening, because the reader is an absolute catastrophe. Totally monotonous voice, not even a hint at different voices for representing the different characters. I was really annoyed since I have never before encountered such a bad reading quality. It's a pity because the story sounded quite promising
