ONE BITE WITH A STRANGER
There's passion and copious sex in Warren's latest paranormal offering. But while her characterization shines through, the thinness of the plot makes this the weakest link in the Others series. Dmitri and Reggie are an intriguing couple; however, their relationship could stand a bit more development. Still, there's hot fun and great sizzle.
Forced by her best friends to endure a fantasy fix-up, Regina McNeill picks the most outlandish fantasy she can think of: a date with a vampire.
Attending a human vampire ball is not how vampire Dmitri Vidame wants to spend his evening, but he and fellow Counsel member Graham, the alpha werewolf, are hunting a rogue vampire. Spotting Reggie from across the room, Dmitri is amazed at the hunger she invokes in him. After all these centuries, has he found his mate? But between interfering friends, dangerous ex-boyfriends and his dark secret, Dmitri's planned seduction may hit a few roadblocks. (ST. MARTIN'S, Oct., 332 pp., $6.99)
