Overview

Some men are worth sticking your neck out for. . .

Sunni Marquette has always been a little different. There's the whole mind-reading thing, for a start, which comes in useful for a criminal defense attorney. Except that lately, Sunni keeps encountering people who are immune to her gift. Like Jacob Eddington, the star witness in her latest case. And her best friend Isabel's new fiancé, Richard Lazarus, who's as sinister as Jacob is attractive. Not that Sunni intends to interfere--until she learns that Richard is a vampire who's made a centuries-long career of marrying wealthy women, then killing them for their inheritance.

Sunni is convinced Jacob is a vampire, too, and that he's her only chance of saving Isabel. With his help, she'll discover powers she never knew she possessed, an enemy who's closer than she could have ever guessed, and the kind of love that's worth staking everything on--if she can just stay alive long enough to enjoy it. . .

The story was okay but not what was recommended. The main character was an art dealer. The relationship is not explained well. For a romance novel, the author does nothing to elicit romance and skips the love scene completely.

If the title didn't give you a chuckle, surely the book will. Biting the Bride is a light, comical paranormal story that I enjoyed Immensely. It's full of adventure, suspense, love, and sexy, mysterious vampires. It's a satisfying read that had me laughing throughout. The dialogue is witty, the characters are well written and were fun to read about. Sunni made for a great heroine, and the struggle of who to trust, between Jacob, a mysterious man who she recalls seeing before, and Richard, another mystery. Jacob and Richard are at odds with each other, and one is telling lies about the other. Putting Sunni, and her best friend, in the middle, and in danger. This is a different spin on vampires, and it's not too dark. Clare Willis is an author to watch out for.

Sunni Marquette is our main character in this fantastical, fun, humorous romp. The one thing Sunni truly believes is that marriage is a big, fat waste of time. This is, in fact, what she's thinking at the beginning of this tale as she stands, once again at an altar; a bridesmaid in yet another wedding, wearing cheap shoes and an orange Jell-O colored gown. This is her college friend's wedding, and pretty much the last place Sunni wants to be standing. Of course, for every bad there is a good, and Sunni soon finds out a reason to stay. Across the room, she sees him.the one.the guardian angel who she's met on and off throughout the years that saved her from a mugger over two years ago. Sunni can't believe it. She also has a hard time believing that he appears just as a drunken sot decides to be a bit overzealous with her at the wedding. Again, the handsome man with eyes that glow like silver appears just as she's about to be harmed, disappearing just as quickly back into the crowd. Oddly enough, Sunni's own "strange" strength makes needing a hero somewhat unnecessary. Although she's now met Jacob Eddington, she's still unsure as to why he always seems to crop up. Is he a stalker? Even her best friend, Isabel, is having strange "man-issues" in her life, too. Isabel and Sunni have been like sisters ever since they were at a psychiatric institute together when they were kids: Sunni had been placed there because of her "odd" abilities; while Isabel was fighting depression. Sunni, having no parents, became a fixture in Isabel and her family's life. In fact, Isabel's parents were kind enough to give her money and a chance to own her very own art gallery. Soon, not only are Jacob Eddington's sudden appearances odd, but also Isabel's fiancé, Richard Lazarus, becomes even odder. Little does Isabel know that Richard is a vampire who has a long history of marrying extremely wealthy women, and then killing them for their inheritances. Although this vamp thinks he's something beyond smooth, he soon finds himself up against Jacob Eddington, as well as the Council and a man named Scipio. This story is not only filled with romance, and some extremely steamy scenes, but the plot is extremely interesting and will keep the reader absorbed until the final page. Between Jacob's interesting job that involves protecting Sunni for life, to the strange background that Sunni will soon discover about herself, this book is truly a mystery wrapped in an enigma.with extremely enchanting men. Enjoy!

Thirty-two years old Sunni Marquette the dhampir (half-breed human-vampire) knows she will always owe the LaForge family for fostering her as a teen with love. They gave her a chance to make it after her horrific childhood. Perhaps the only thing she does not like about being part of the LaForge brood is the weddings, which means ugly dresses and standing a head shorter than the other bridesmaid (she is always carded), but out of loyalty to her beloved foster parents she diligently attends. At the latest nuptials, she sees a man she thinks is her guardian angel. Stunned soon afterward a drunk attacks her in the bathroom, but to her shock Sunni easily outmuscles the attacker. However, the bigger shocker, perhaps the greatest in her life occurs, when soon after the assault her guardian angel, who saved her years ago from a mugging, talks to her. Jacob has kept Sunni safe for years as he has kept her concealed from rouge vampires who would drink her special blood to gain her power. Jacob fell in love with her years ago, but knows if a rogue finds her he will accomplish the dark side of his mission by killing her. Now a rogue knows of her and attacks by going after her beloved LaForge family. This exiting action-packed urban fantasy grips readers from the moment Sunni sees her guardian and never slows down until the final confrontation. The Willis universe seems genuine as miscegenation laws cause all sorts of complicated societal issues. However though Sunni is terrific as she holds the plot together and the villain is a nasty power grabber, Jacob makes the tale work with his angst of knowing he will kill his beloved if the rogue has a reasonable chance of taking her.

She wasn't a lawyer. She was an art dealer. She didn't read minds either. Shame on this reviewer for doing such a disgraceful job.
