License to Bite
Carrie Pulkinen
Paranormal Romantic Comedy

It’s all fun and games….

…until someone wakes up dead.

Governor’s daughter Jane Anderson is used to getting what she wants. When a girls’ trip to Mardi Gras thrusts her into the arms—and fangs—of New Orleans’ hottest vampire, he gifts her with immortality, super strength, and a complexion to die for.

There’s only one tiny problem. Jane faints at the sight of blood.

When Ethan Devereaux meets Jane, his cold, lifeless heart learns to beat again. Convinced she’s his late fiancée reincarnated, he turns her, claiming her as his own. But when Jane wakes up dead in Ethan’s attic, she’s loud, sassy, and downright ornery. He doesn’t know if he should kiss her or stake her, but one thing’s for certain…

She is so not his long-lost love.

But Ethan turned her, so he’s stuck with her. Jane has three weeks to learn the ways of the vampire and get her license, or she’ll be staked. If Ethan can’t help her overcome her aversion to blood, his undead life might also be on the line.

Uncaged Review: This is a fun book, and in
times like today, fun is a good escape. This book
reminds me a bit of the early books in the Lynsay
Sands Argeneau series. Jane and her BFF Sophie
are in New Orleans around Mardi Gras, as Jane
is a travel blogger, and the daughter of the Texas
governor. After drinking too much one night, they
meet Ethan and Gaston – unknown to them in their
drunkenness that they are vampires. But Ethan
and Gaston get them home safe and sound. The
next day, Jane and Sophie are out again, but as
Jane is out taking selfies near a cool New Orleans
cemetery, she is hit by a car. Ethan gets to her, and
changes her into a vampire before she dies. But
when she wakes up the next evening, he’s wondering
if that was a mistake.
This has some really hilarious moments, and it is
fun to see the author compare Ethan to Edward
Cullen and Gaston to Jack Sparrow, since Gaston
likes to bite the drunk people and get drunk
himself, and Ethan is a broody, unhappy vampire.
Jane’s aversion to seeing blood makes it even funnier.
There are a lot of fun moments, a whole lot
of sass and the storyline was not overly deep and
suspenseful, but it was a light hearted read that
was welcomed in these darker days of winter.
