It's only been a couple weeks since Ovsanna Moore put down the forces trying to bring down her authority over the vampyres in Hollywood. Now she's facing a scarier group. She has accepted an invitation to meet Peter King's family at his parents' home on Christmas Eve. It's always uneasy meeting the family in a relationship, especially if it hasn't gone far yet. It's more difficult when there are lots of humans, she's getting hungry, But the food Mrs. King serves isn't what she eats. She certainly doesn't want to show her true self to the family of the man who attracts her.
Peter feels the same way. But he's a policeman - and in charge of the Cinema Slayer case. He was at Ovsanna's showdown a couple weeks earlier and knows the murderer is now also dead. But he certainly can't tell the truth to his captain. Since she was involved in the Slayer case, he shouldn't be seeing her socially. How does he "solve" it to act on his attraction to her.
They also have jealous humans, werewolves, drug dealers, other were animals, job seeking vampyres, and a business merger for Ovsanna's studio. Whoever said starting a new relationship is easy?
Adrienne Barbeau has continued her fun, campy Vampyres of Hollywood with a sequel that is just as fun. This time she has written it alone. Michael Scott wrote Peter King's sections in the first book; Barbeau has written Love Bites alone. It is written in the same format - some chapters from Ovsanna's first person narrative and some from Pete's point of view.
Love Bites is funny and fun. It is vulgar and campy and at times gory. It's not for the faint hearted. It also helps the reader to be up on current slang, television shows, and Hollywood gossip. Barbeau sprinkles the most current show business references throughout - which will date themselves quickly.
Love Bites is a cute fantasy, great escapism. OK,it's not great literature. But it's fun and will make you smile - and shudder at the monster attacks. Then there is the final monster show down as well, so there's action and romance to end the book.
