Reviewette – “At Second Bite” by Michelle Rowen

Anthology: The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance
Story: 20 of 24
Pages: 22
Romance Featured: Vampires
Opening Line: “Do you know who I am?”

The opening line in At Second Bite is indeed an opening line. Julia is approached at a singles bar by the handsome Evan who quickly admits that he is a vampire and that she is his reincarnated soul mate for whom he has been searching for 300 years. Yeah right. Julie hightails it out of the bar only to be confronted by Evans’ older roguish brother Henry who confirms Evans story. Only Henry wants her dead. And explains why – in detail.

There is plenty of Rowen’s trademark snappy dialogue in this tale of mistaken identity and soul mates. The outcome for each brother is unexpected (especially the bit about the pit bull terrier) and Julia gets her HEA. A light-hearted, slightly silly tale. What would you do if someone walked up to you and said they were a vampire?
