A Quick Bite

Lynsay Sands, Author . Avon $6.99 (374p) ISBN 978-0-06-077375-5

Sexy blond Lissianna Argeneau takes center stage in Sands's disappointing new entry in her popular Argeneau series (Single White Vampire , etc.) about a Canadian vampire family. For Lissianna's 30th birthday, her mother brings her what she considers the perfect birthday present: a psychologist, Greg Hewitt, who can cure her fear of the sight of blood so she can feed off blood-bank bags like a civilized vampire rather than from random humans. The night doesn't go as planned when Lissianna takes a romantic liking to the good doctor. Worse, the clan has trouble controlling his "strong mind" and erasing his memory of the family, putting their secret in jeopardy. Though the love scenes hit an erotic high note, the quick courtship between Lissianna and Greg is serviceable at best, and the first half of the thin plot moves like molasses as Lissianna explains... and explains... to Greg how the vampire race operates. In addition, lines like "They were all looking just as blank as she felt" can make for a clunky read. Agent, Jenny Bent at Trident Media Group. (Nov.)
