I have been on a bit of a historical kick for a while. I needed a break. Not a big one but something just different enough. This was perfect because it was a historical but had a paranormal twist to it which I loved.
Angelica was one of my favorite heroines that I have come across lately. I loved her bookworm tendencies and her spunk. I also admired her desire to raise hell to spite her mother and society's expectations. I loved Ian. Ian was the perfect hero to start a series with because he was likable with a bit of an edge. He had sensitivity and depth of character that I really appreciated.The chemistry between Angelica and Ian was tender in spite of their conflicts. Their personalities meshed so well. Angelica had a stronger personality than I expected and Ian was much more sensitive and they complemented each other so well.
I loved just about everything about Bite Me, Your Grace. I have been in one heck of a reading slump but I read this one in a couple of hours, in one sitting. I loved the addition of John Polidori. I read The Vampyre in college in a Gothic Literature class and loved it (seriously download a copy. It's free to download from most places). The way Polidori and his novel were written into Bite Me, Your Grace was absolutely brilliant. And Polidori got a much better ending here than he got in real life.
I HIGHLY recommend Bite Me, Your Grace. If you like Lydia Dare's books, this one will definitely appeal. I can't wait for the next book. I hope it's about Rafe.
