That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau’s bed? He’s not dessert—he’s the main course!
Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. 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.

There is always something so cute and fun about these Argeneau books. It has been years and years since I last read these early books, I’ve mostly just been keeping up with them as they have come out. Yet it is so fun to get back to the start! These are good books for cute, funny romances where only good things happen to people who deserve it. And sex. There is sex.
Lissianna Argeneau is the baby of the family at 200 years old. The last of the children Marguerite had with Jean Claude, and the one who was raised under the worst of his drinking problems. Lissianna has a lot of problems, but she knows one thing in life: she will never let herself become like her mother in love. She is determined to find her life mate to live her life with, or she just won’t have love. Despite, or maybe because of, how she was raised, Lissi is sweet and kind, she really doesn’t want to a bother on her family or anyone else. Her fainting at the sight of blood is just hilarious, though. I love it.
Gregory Hewitt is a psychiatrist that specialises in phobias. And he is strangely okay with being kidnapped, especially when there is a sexy woman at the other end of it. Like seriously, strangely okay. I don’t understand his thought processes, but I sure can be amused by them. He also spends a lot of time trying to convince himself that vampires aren’t real, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. I mean, seriously? Who in the world just accepts they’d climb into a strange woman’s trunk instead of vampires being real? Hahaha
Lissi and Greg are cute together. They just work. And the Argeneau family is just hilarious. They are the best family to have around you. They have your back, even when you don’t think they will. They have it because you are you and you belong to them. When I’m with them, I feel like I’m family. That is one of the the best feelings to have while reading.
The big conflict for the book is the priest who thinks Lissi is a vampire, so she is trying to trick her to fall for his traps. They’re all based on the stereotypical traps for vampires. It is great. And amazing. And hilarious. Of course these aren’t your stereotypical vampires, what with the nanos and everything. It always, always amuses me that Lynsay Sands was trying to come up with a vampire for this series and went “nanos from Atlantis, perfect!”
This is a reread, and like I said it has been years since I last read this. It is amazing just how much of what I consider defining about the Argeneau series that wasn’t present in this book. There were life mates, but they didn’t pass out when they had sex. There wasn’t any shared dreams. The long drawn out learning process from human to vampire wasn’t there. Boy, has this series changed over the years!
Yet, this was really funny and really cute. I did quite enjoy reading this and I do recommend it if you’re looking for a nice light romance with vampires. From Atlantis. Made with nanos. 😂
