"Bite at First Sight" [Scandals With Bite Series, Book 3] by Brooklyn Ann
Author's Book Description : Her interest is purely scientific
Cassandra Burton wants to study medicine, surgery, healing, and everything related to the human body and its mysteries—and she's willing to rob graves to do it! But a lady can meet dark and dangerous characters lurking around the cemetery. And who could be more fascinating than Rafael Villar, Lord Vampire of London? If she could
study his physiology, she could learn so much that would help humans. After all, he’s immortal—and Cassandra is now his prisoner…
Until she gets close enough to touch
As if Rafael didn’t have enough to worry about, with a rebellion brewing and his allies out of reach, now he’s confronted by a beautiful, fearless lady who wants to heal the scars he's borne for centuries. He can’t keep her, and he can’t let her go, and worst of all, he’s every bit as intrigued by her as she is by him.

Praise for One Bite Per Night :
“Solid writing, a tasty dash of originality, and realistic relationships that zing with sexual energy.” — Publishers Weekly
My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars! All of her life Cassandra has strived to become a Doctor. However, because of her being a woman she has had to learn everything she knows on her own, which is why she finds herself in a cemetery with plans on getting some cadavers so she could start studying the human anatomy. What she never expected was to have Don Villar (Rafael/Rafe) find her there and to have him turn out to be anything but human. Now with Cassandra embroiled into the vampire world Rafael has a month to find a way to change her into a vampire too or there will be drastic consequences. But with a rebellion on the horizon will they be able to accomplish everything in time or will it be all for not?
A wonderfully dramatic tale set in a historical paranormal world where you’ll find a sweet love story between a progressive woman and a stubborn scarred man. Now that I think of it this novel reminds me a little bit of “Beauty & the Beast.” This was the first novel that I’ve read from Ms. Brooklyn Ann so it’s also the first one from this series, and I am soo happy that I was not lost making this a standalone-ish novel that I could truly enjoy. In addition, you get tons of updates from previous characters, historical information/fictional scenes with a famous doctor and a great buildup to the next novel in this series.
Cassandra and Rafael have an intriguing bond from the very beginning. A hot, steamy, and feisty connection encourages you to root for them too. I loved how these two fought for one another, with Rafael doing his best to keep Cassandra safe while toeing the line of the vampire laws and Cassandra doing her best to learn ways to fix Rafael’s arm even when he refuses help.
Even though I had a feeling it was going to happen at some point, I really wish my favorite secondary character in this novel didn’t have to die. It was so sad. =0(
Nevertheless, I will say I LOVED this novel!! I HIGHLY recommend it to those looking for a unique historical paranormal romance!

Book Teaser(s) :
It was the worst luck that the first mortal he'd deliberately revealed himself to was impervious to his power. ~ within Chapter 1
"After all you put me through, now you are concerned with inconveniencing me?"
His laughter stung.
Cassandra fixed him with an icy glare. "You inconvenienced yourself when you brought me here against my will."
"Indeed, I did." His expression sobered and he once more stepped closer, leaning in until his breath brushed across her lips. "Through perhaps you should take care not to exacerbate matters. Or else I may be tempted to wed you just for the legal right to take you over my knee." ~ within Chapter 4
"Thomas Wakley has arrived, my lady. He has brought a corpse." His mouth twisted in disgust. "I'm going to have to heft the thing up here, aren't I?"
"Most likely." ~ within Chapter 8
