A Quick Bite (Argeneau Vampire Series #1)

A Quick Bite - Lynsay Sands A Quick Bite is the first book in the Argeneau series. I accidentally read Love Bites, the first book in the series first. A Quick Bite is yet another paranormal romance, and so this means the usual boy meets girl and zmog they're in love forever and ever routine. As I have stated many times, I am not a fan of paranormal romance, but I was willing to give this book a try after enjoying Love Bites for its humor.The plot really is quite basic. Lissianna, a 202 year old vampire meets Greg after her mother kidnaps him for her birthday. Greg assumes that he is to be a human sex toy, when in fact he was kidnapped to cure Lissianna of her phobia. Yes, she's a vampire who passes out at the sight of blood. At first she assumes that he is a special dinner, as vampires consider it a treat to come across an undiagnosed diabetic for the sugar in their blood. Greg is resistant to being tied up and served for dinner, but when he sees Lissianna, surprise surprise, it's instant boner time cause she's just that special. Vampires are normally able to read minds, wipe memories and plant suggestions in the mind of humans, but Lissianna is unable to do so with Greg. Apparently, this is an indicator that she has met her true life mate. Everyone say awwww. Worry ensues because if Greg's memory cannot be erased, he certainly cannot "allowed to wander the earth with knowledge of who and what they are. Instead of being scared witless, he goes grocery shopping with them and out for breakfast -- 'cause that makes the most sense. Eventually Lissianna decides that Greg is really at risk when Uncle Lucien one of the oldest vampires in existence shows up and the two of them make a getaway on a bicycle. They end up roaming around downtown Toronto together. Read more
