Book 1 of New Orleans Nocturnes
Paranormal Romance, Romantic Comedy, Vamps & Shifters Romance

Drinking blood sucks.

Governor's daughter Jane Anderson is used to getting what she wants. When a girls' trip to Mardi Gras thrusts her into the arms—and fangs—of New Orleans' hottest vampire, he gifts her with immortality, super strength, and a complexion to die for.

There's only one tiny problem. Jane faints at the sight of blood.

When Ethan Devereaux meets Jane, his cold, lifeless heart learns to beat again. Convinced she's his late fiancée reincarnated, he turns her, claiming her as his own. But when Jane wakes up dead in Ethan's attic, she's loud, obnoxious, and downright ornery. He doesn't know if he should kiss her or stake her, but one thing's for certain…

She is so not his long-lost love.

But Ethan turned her, so he's stuck with her. Jane has three weeks to learn the ways of the vampire and get her license, or she'll be staked. If Ethan can't help her overcome her aversion to blood, his undead life might also be on the line.

Join the supes of New Orleans Nocturnes as they lighten up the darker side of the Big Easy in this fast, steamy romantic comedy.

LICENSE TO BITE is the first book in the New Orleans Nocturnes series and up first we have an entitled rich girl and a moody vampire.

Ethan is a serious vampire and still carries over two decades of guilt over his girlfriend. Jane is entitled, who thinks she can get away with anything because of her family. Ethan, I loved. Jane, nah, not so much.

There are many references to Twilight in here which seems completely appropriate as it takes place after the films are aired. Surely any vampire would be compared now?! Jane mainly called him Edward when he is annoying her, which seems to be most of the time.

This is supposed to be a fun, lighthearted romantic comedy and for the most part, it pulls it off. Some of the time it headed toward slapstick and other times I was waiting for a reaction and didn't get one.

So, overall, my rating would be 3.5-stars and I would recommend it if you want a light read with lots of Twilight references.
