Overview

From NYT Bestselling Author Aubrey Rose comes a pulse-pounding vampire romance novel with a bite of wit!

Billionaire playboy Robert Chatham is as bloodthirsty as it gets. Snarky and self-obsessed, he has a new girl every day of the week. What the London tabloids don't know is the reason Robb acts like a lady-killer: to avoid having to kill them. A four-hundred year old vampire, he feeds and moves on, never getting attached to any girl.

Until Liz.

A shy American transplant in the heart of London, Liz is slaving away on her grad school project: working to find a cure for the blood cancer that her younger sister died from years ago. Dead focused on her studies, she's more interested in the chemistry of hemoglobin than in the chemistry between her and any guy.

Until Robb.

After an old vampire friend comes asking for a favor, Robb has to choose between repaying a life debt and chasing after the one girl who's broken through his emotional walls. And when Liz stumbles upon evidence that seems to solve the puzzle of his mysterious seclusion, she confronts him in his lab. Only the dark secret she thought she had uncovered turns out to be something even more terrifying.

With a dead body in the trunk of his Porsche and a vial of cancerous blood in the pocket of her lab coat, Robb and Liz are heading for a collision course that will change both of their lives forever...

    I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. Another great story by Aubrey Rose. Living in London, Robb is a vampire and is a love them and leave them kind of guy. It is better than killing them. He keeps moving so no one know who or what he is. He is not looking for a relationship of any kind. Until Liz. She is in London working on her grad school project, working to find a cure for blood cancer that took her sister years ago. She is focused on blood more than guys. They are instantly attracted to each other. Can they fight the feelings? What will she do when she finds out what Robb is and she confronts him? Aubrey has a way with paranormal romances and they are well worth the time to read them. So pick this one up and enjoy it, I loved it.

    Heartbitten is another wonderful story from the pen of Aubrey Ro

    Heartbitten is another wonderful story from the pen of Aubrey Rose, switching genres again she hits another
    home run with this tale of vampires and chemistry. 
    Set in England Robb is a vampire who has been there, down that and got all the t-shirts to prove it, as one line
    says “The notches on his bedpost, if he kept them, would have whittled down the entire bedframe to sawdust.”
    Except he is looking for more, as we all are I suppose, what he is not looking for is love though.
    Liz is an American studying in London, though there is an instant attraction Liz fights it because of who she is
    and what she has gone through, once again Liz is looking for more but not realising she may have found it in
    Robb.
    I know I shouldn't have but I loved the character of Thaddeus, definitely a vampire past his use by date,
    he was just so well written that you had to love him.
    Bough this ends on a happy note I hope that there is more to come, and that this becomes a series,
    the characters were all so well drawn and the story so well written that when it finished I wanted more. 
    I received a free copy for an honest review.

    This new adult vampire romance is an intriguing and mesmerizing

    This new adult vampire romance is an intriguing and mesmerizing read.  A four-hundred year old vampire, Robert Chatham is a billionaire playboy who feeds then moves on never getting attached to one girl… until Liz. Shy American grad student, Liz is more interested in the chemistry of hemoglobin that the chemistry between her and any guy…until Robb. Robb has to choose between an old friend and chasing the girl, Liz learns his secret and has to decide to run or stay and they are both on a collision course that will change their lives.
    This steady paced plot keeps reader entertained with suspense, some action, some humorous moments and romance.  The author brings the story to life with vivid imagery and details that capture the imagination and the strong compelling characters are easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.  
    The attraction between Liz and Robb radiates from the pages, but there are a lot of issues to overcome before a romance can blossom.  Liz captures the heart with her shy, vulnerable and insecure personality when it comes to the opposite sex and Robb captures it by his arrogant playboy attitude that hides the lonely heart.  
    The story is the age old vampire romance with a few twists that adds some depth to the story, a friend putting pressure on Robb makes a huge scene and Robb’s cancer research is what introduces him to Liz.  The scientific aspect of the story might cause a few pauses in the story if the reader isn’t chemistry orientated like me and have to stumble over those big words, but luckily the author keeps it to a minimum and adds to some humorous dialogue and distractions in the story that keep the reader caught up in the drama. Overall I enjoyed the vampire romance and it makes a great addition to my Aubrey Rose collection of books.

    I received this book for review from the publisher through Net Galley




    This book is described as New Adult, a class of book I am just learning about, even though I believe I have read other books that are classified as New Adult as well. In my opinion they are just edger YA novels with slightly older characters, more graphic sex and stronger swear words. I'm torn between a two and three star rating for this book, perhaps I will wait until the end of my review to make the finial decision. 




    Over all I liked the book, it was a sweet love story an easy read that took me less than a day to finish. I thought Robb an ass for much of the book, but womanizing powerful men often get away with that sort of thing. So it made sense that he falls for the one girl who calls him out on it. He isn't used to that sort of challenge. I liked Liz, stereotypes and all. The book was chop full of stereotypes actually and I saw several similarities in story-line to other popular book/series I have read. Not really rip offs, more like I saw their influence. 




    The beginning of the book reminded me of Discovery of Witches, scientists dealing with blood instead of genetics and a vampire who is trying to cure himself of his condition and the University in England setting. A little Twilight thrown in as well with the extreme clumsiness that seemed to plague Liz a little too much throughout the story. And even some Fifty Shades of Grey, which is even referenced in the story itself, in the billionaire playboy and his exotic tastes, or reference to them, in sex. 




    There was plenty in the story to make it its own though. I liked the beginning where we see the world where Robb came from, it would have been nice to read more about his past. It never really was explained how he was made a vampire or even the rules for vampires in this world. You kinda figure out that the sun isn't an issue, they can control their aging and they can eat food, but nothing else is delved into or explained. 




    There was only a couple of issues I found in the story that bothered me. Bears do not live wild in England and would a Porsche's trunk really be big enough to hold a dead body. On the second point I'm not a car person and couldn't find a definite answer while surfing on my Nook, so I dropped it. Also I could not find if this is supposed to be a series or stand alone. It left a lot hanging at the end which leads me to believe there will be future books featuring Robb and Liz. If it is a stand alone I would have like to see a longer book that goes into more detail and wrapped things up better. 




    If there are future books I might give them a try. I am also going to check out some other titles by this author. Like I said I did enjoy this book and I am going to give it three stars simply because of that. It kept me reading.

    Heartbitten is a very interesting read. I didn't think I would like Heartbitten from reading the description. Another self-absorbed vampire billionaire...blah blah blah. I was very pleasantly surprised with the characters that Aubrey Rose created. Which I shouldn't be because Aubrey Rose is an amazing author. Robb and Liz were characters that I could get behind and root for. Can Robb and Liz work thru their differences? Heartbitten is a book that you won't be able to put down until you find out!
