      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Would appeal more to romance fans than readers of fantasy

      If you prefer your vampires to be more on the lighter side, then you will enjoy Lyndsay Sands' Argeneau series. A Quick Bite is the first in the series (despite being written after book 2) and features Lissianna Argeneau, a member of a family of Canadian vampires. Poor Lissianna has a bit of a problem for a vampire - she faints at the sight of blood. In an attempt to help her daughter, Marguerite Argeneau brings Lissianna a 30th birthday present: Greg, a psychologist, who Marguerite hopes will be able to cure Lissianna so that she can feed from the bags of blood from a blood bank like a modern-day vampire should. Marguerite had hoped that once Greg had cured Lissianna, all memories of his time with the vampires could be wiped from his mind. But things do not go quite to plan. The back cover blurb offered much promise but unfortunately the author just didn't deliver. Most of the characters seemed to be rather two-dimensional and had very conventional attitudes considering they were vampires. Also the humour was, at times, pretty laboured. I have read a couple of other books in this series and, again, they just didn't live up to expectations though that could be due to my preference for urban fantasy rather than paranormal romance. This book would appeal to fans of romance novels where the vampire element is largely incidental but if you prefer darker, more edgy bloodsuckers, I'd give this one a miss.
