Lisette Ashton’s Once Bitten, published 2010, is very entertaining vampire erotica with a delightful protagonist.
Vampires, it seems, find pain to be a powerful aphrodisiac. Burn them with crosses and holy water and they will scream with the agony of it, but they will also burn with a deeper hunger for sexual satisfaction…
Tessa’s friend Mel turns her into a vampire because she needs help seducing the priest she loves. However, the priest betrays her and Mel is taken away by the Legion of Vampire Hunters. Tessa, a new vampire all alone, turns for help to Carlos, a sadistic alpha-male vampire whose sexual prowess is legendary and who keeps a trio of beautiful vampire girls as a personal harem. Carlos agrees to help – but only if Tessa submits to him.
Except she won’t, and I love that about her. How rare and wonderful to find a bisexual female vampire who doesn’t obsess about an alpha-male. No, Tessa is the star of this novel.
If I have one complaint, it’s that Tessa doesn’t drink blood. But otherwise… Very well written and intensely erotic.
