In the Heat of the Bite by Lydia Dare
Rhiannon Sinclair know as the weather witch heads to London to rescue her sister from their awful Aunt Greer. Who has gotten in her head that she would launch Genny into society. Rhiannon is not happy with the situation and decides to have a temper tantrum in the middle of Hyde Park, when Matthew Halkett, Earl of Blodswell stumbles upon her. Nothing with rain, thunder and lighting in the middle of Hyde Park, while the rest of London is dry. A tad bit disturbed by Matthew appearance, decides to run away from him. Come on the last encounter she had with a vampire wasn't a pleasant one, which would explain why she would run like a scared rabbit.
Rhiannon comes to find out that Matthew is real not a bad vampire and needs some help to gain some respectability in the eyes of her aunt. I don't know why she would want that from a bitter jealous aunt. Rhiannon is not the only that needs help, Matthew has come to realize that he has no desire to feed on anyone else after meeting Rhiannon. That's not good, after all he is a vampire. Hmmm, what to do, what to do? It's always hard being a gentleman vampire.
Who wouldn't want a knight and shinning armor kinda guy? I mean he's always there when you need him. And who doesn't want a friend who can effect the weather? Both can come in handy. Then you put them together, wow what an effect.
Overall, I liked the story and as always the dynamic duo who make up Lydia Dare are always building to create future stories. However, they are very subtle and you wouldn't really notice. Since this is my second time reading this book, I'm starting to see the future characters. Honestly, these books are really neat in that aspect, you don't see too many authors doing this. I strongly suggest reading the other books first before diving into this story, because it really helps the story along. So, I leave you today and happy reading.
