Once Bitten

It seemed like vampires were as badly hated as carpal tunnel, Brussel sprouts, and jerks.

Death by accident, vampire by design

USA Today Bestselling Author Tina Glasneck presents the funny romantic urban fantasy set in the rolling hills of Scotland, staring Nessie, a dragon shapeshifter, and the romance author he happened to save from hypothermia.

This was supposed to be the cruise that would reignite the spark in my floundering romance writing career. My life changed with an awful splash into the North Sea. When hypothermia set in, I never expected rescue in the shape of Nessie – yep that Nessie, a dragon. He saved me, but, boy, what a cost.

The human me would have loved to live in a Scottish castle, in the Highlands no less, but something dark lurks here. This place is full of magic, other supernatural beings that are loyal to Alistair MacLeod, the tall, gorgeous dragon shifter.

But, now someone is after me. Girls are appearing strangled and drained, leaving behind vampire markings. My housemates are giving me the side-eye, like I’d break the cardinal rule in this world: don’t reveal yourself to humans.

And now someone is trying to make sure that I’m wiped out.

Walking undead or not, if I’m going down again, I’m taking this wretched corner of the supernatural world with me.

This story is a nice little side story in her Dragons universe. Leslie has been dropped by her publisher and while she rather sit at home, she had already signed up to attend a writer’s cruise in Scotland. She unwittingly falls overboard and is rescued by Nessie, the dragon. What follows is the game of a God playing match-maker with a Dragon and a special girl form a prophecy. Once Bitten is a great story with romance, some humor and a bit of mystery; definitely worth the time to read.

"Tina Glasneck's "Once Bitten" is a humorous story about a romance author, Leslie Love, who falls overboard while on a cruise. With the aid of her ghost grandmother, she wakes up in a Alistair MacLeod's castle. The problem is he had to bite her to bring her back to life, so now she can't go out in the sun and she has a thirst for human blood. One would think romance would come easy in a place on which all her scenes are based, but she puts up a good fight." - Skelly, Review

    Check Out What Other Readers Are Saying About Once Bitten:

    I really try not to start some author's books too close to bedtime for fear of the dreaded book hangover. However, with Tina Glasneck's works it's hard to do. Her books are so full of action, and yummy Thor lookalikes that I just want to read myself right into Valhalla. This book just hooked me, and once bitten, I read until the wee hours of the morning to find out what happened to Leslie and Alistair. Please note that this is a series, so there will be more to come between the two (but there was plenty of tension between them), but this book ended on a "content for now" note. I also found this book to be a refreshing take on how some vampires are created. It has become so same-old, same-old in that regard, but the way Leslie became a vampire was very intriguing. Give this book a try. I highly recommend it!

    I loved this book!! Leslie was a fantastic well developed character with lots of attitude. Alistair was also a great character who had great chemistry with Leslie. The story was great with lots of twist and some mystery and a great plot line. Secondary characters were also well developed like Gran who I completely enjoyed. This book kept me turning pages until the end of the book. Loved it!!

    I loved this story so much! I enjoyed Leslie being able to see and talk to her dead grandmother, who was a kick by the way! Alistair helped save her when she was thrown of the ship, but at what cost to Leslie. I couldn't put this book down until I was finished! It is a cliff hanger! Can't wait to read the next story.

    This is the first book by Tina Glasneck that I have read and I really enjoyed it!
    Funny that it was about a writer, not something that you expect but it really worked.
    Great characters and....Dragons! Who doesn't like Dragons

    Great start to a series that promises to be very interesting. It is full of magical beings, ghosts and magic. Add in the unique situation/storyline and great characters and it becomes a wonderful book.
