In the Heat of the Bite by Lydia DareShe makes him feel more alive than he has since he died…

Chivalry is far from undead…

Matthew Halkett, Earl of Blodswell, is one of the few men in the ton who can claim to be a knight in shining armor—because that’s precisely what he was before being turned into a vampyre. When he spies a damsel in distress in the midst of a storm in Hyde Park, his natural instinct is to rush to her aid…

But not every woman needs to be rescued…

Weather-controlling witch Rhiannon Sinclair isn’t caught in a storm— she’s the cause of it. She’s mortified to have been caught making trouble by the imposing earl, but she doesn’t need any man—never has, and is sure she never will…

But when Rhiannon encounters Matthew again, her powers go awry and his supernatural abilities run amok. Between the two of them, the ton is thrown into an uproar. There’s never been a more tempestuous scandal…

 Rosie’s Thoughts

Looking for a wonderful Regency romp with a paranormal flair? Others have tried, but Lydia Dare is the Queen of Regency paranormals!

Nowhere is her deft touch more evident than in her telling the story of Rhiannon and Matthew in In The Heat of the Bite. This book is a pure delight from the first witchy storm in Hyde Park, through Matthew’s befuddlement (despite being 900 years old, women are still so very impossible to understand!) and a perfectly lovely HEA.

Wrap all of this up with Regency characters, balls, evil match-making aunts, a few lupines, witches and vampires, and you have a book that will have you curling up for an afternoon of pure delight.

This isn’t rocket science, it’s not gritty urban fantasy, it’s a perfect romantic indulgence done with wit and style!
