Review: "Bite Me, Your Grace" by Brooklyn Ann

Bite Me, Your Grace
(Bite Me Your Grace #1)
by: Brooklyn Ann
Publishing Date: 4/2/13
Publisher: Sourcebooks
Genre: Historical/Paranormal Romance
Source: Netgalley

Description:
England's "vampire craze" causes much vexation for the Lord Vampire of London, Ian Ashton. To save his reputation, Ian enlists aspiring authoress Angelica Winthrop without realizing she has hidden plans of her own. 

Angelica Winthrop's life goal is to ruin her reputation, avoid marriage, and become a gothic authoress like her idol, Mary Shelley. To find inspiration for her new story, she breaks into the home of Ian Ashton, Duke of Burnrath, not knowing she will be coming up against the Lord Vampire of London. Romance sparks and reputations are at stake. But who knows the real difference between fact and fiction?

My Review:
The first thing that drew me to this book was the beautiful cover and then the synopsis of the book saying it was a historical and paranormal romance mix.  Two genres I adore written together...I definitely had to read this book.

Unfortunately, the book tended to be a little dry and confusing at first and then it would get interesting...and then again dry.  Although, I did adore the characters, I just was not really interested on some parts of the storyline because it just got confusing a little bit.  

I loved Angelica in the story because she was one strong-willed, determined character who wanted nothing to do with marriage and wanted to pursue her writing career.  Until, she meets her match, and he happens to be a vampire.  She's not scared of him of course, she's more intrigued and wanting to know more about him and his kind.

I also loved Ian, the Duke of Burnath, at times...other times he tended to be a jerk.  He was not really intrigued with Angelica at first, until he finally got to talk with her and find out how she really is.  There were times in the story where I wanted to hit him on the top of his head for the way he treated Angelica.

There were so many storylines going that what was making the book confusing.  You had Angelica and Ian...then you had the Vampire Hunter, plus the writer, John and another vampire who loved him, Rosetta. The most confusing part was when Ian was trying to track down John, but then he gave up after awhile...but Rosetta and John thought he had not and in came controversy.  

Do not get me wrong, I liked "Bite Me Your Grace", I just did not love it.  I plan on reading the next book though because I really like how Brooklyn put together two genres and I want to know who will be the next characters to get their own book.  I really want to know more about Ian's second in command and the other Lord Vampire.  

All I can say is the female character was a lot more stronger lead in this book then Ian.  Maybe because she took care of herself and she made the book so much better for me.  

I give this book 3.5 full moons and recommend it to readers who love the historical and paranormal romance genres.  Brooklyn Ann is one author who tells a story of a vampire who has never fallen in love before, until he meets the one mortal who changes his world and she does not make it easy for him.  

I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley (from the publisher) in exchange for an honest review.

I really love those two genres too and the title caught my eye and made me snicker a little bit. The heroine sounds fantastic. Sad to hear it wasn't a blow you out of the water read. Hope book two goes a little better and isn't so confusing. I'm really glad to hear a bit about this one.
