Book Description

“As they drank tiny glasses of Chartreuse and the fire died down to embers, he continued to hold her hand, and eventually, with one finger, touch the thin silk strap of her dress, and eventually, for just a moment, her neck, but no more….”

Champion equestrienne Jo Martin has set off for France and her dream job at a breathtaking Château. She dismisses the rumors about vampires as nothing more than tabloid fodder and just wants to spend all her time in the saddle. But David la Motte, the Marquis's sexy younger brother, has other ideas—and he's not shy about spelling them out.

The longer she stays, the more entangled Jo becomes with the la Motte brothers. David is irresistible to women but a classic playboy; his brother Henri is a shy scientist who lights up when Jo enters a room. But she didn't come to France looking for romance, and struggles to sort out passion from real emotion. Before long, events begin unfolding faster and faster, threatening everything she has always believed about the world, and about herself.

~*steamy paranormal, first in a series with no cliffhanger*~

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, sexy France! November 16, 2012
By Nora
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of the erotic vampire genre. It's fun to read different takes on the vampire world, and "Unbitten" did not disappoint.

We meet an American girl, Jo, as she arrives in a small French village to begin work as trainer and rider of a prized show horse for the owners of a grand French chateau.

The owners of Chateau Gagnon are brothers, Henri and David de la Motte, both of them strikingly handsome vampires. The older brother, Henri, is the responsible one, with his head in the clouds dreaming up useful products to develop in his lab to market and sell to his vampire brethren around the world.

The younger brother, David, is the charming reckless one, who treats the guests on holiday at the Chateau as a convenient snack bar for his voracious appetite (nourishment and sexual needs).

Jo gets caught up with the intoxicating sexy younger brother---he's the one you know you shouldn't fall for, but you always do. All that hot sex keeps you from thinking clearly!

Their perfect world gets messy when David, in a fit of passion, loses control with one of the Chateau's guests. The brothers' livelihood is further threatened when a businessman from overseas is determined to steal Henri's product line and crush him.

The author weaves a cast of very interesting characters in and out of the main story arc. The chapters take turns, flipping to focus on different characters and sub-plots, as the main story moves along. It was very engaging, and I found myself setting aside blocks of time so I could get back to the book to find out what was going to happen next. The sex is definitely steamy, although not overly explicit.

I was disappointed we didn't learn more about Angelique, the mysterious woman who deftly manages the estate, and is clearly devoted to the de la Motte brothers. There's a story to be had there! Maybe in subsequent books?

Bottom line? "Unbitten" was a fun, sexy escape!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing and Seductive... February 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am very fussy about my paranormal romances. Spoiled on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", I was never able to connect with Twilight or the myriad other books that tried to capitalize on the vampire mania. Unbitten was totally different. A well-crafted story, with excellent writing, steamy sex scenes (just the right amount), and a new way to think about vampires and vampire fiction. I was completely mesmerized by the story, the characters, and the background brushstrokes of fabulous meals, French countryside, and history. It made the story sing, and feel like a real treat for the senses. I loved it, and am so glad to see there is going to be a sequel. Hurry up, Ms. Du Sange! I want to know what happens next...

3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read July 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The story is about a woman named Jo who is looking for a good job, preferably with horses as that is what she does - train horses. She gets her dream job in France and when there realizes there is more than just humans in this world! Very interesting take on vampires. I enjoyed this book and found it very easy to read. The beginning did a great job setting up the story and the ending brought everything together! The characters are very complex; and, for a few characters it kept me wondering who they were and where that character was going.

I received this book free for a review, but this review is truly how I feel about the book

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! February 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to admit, I thought vampire fictions was just for teenagers. But when my friends told me I simply had to read "Unbitten", I decided to try it. I figured the price was right, I might as well. Oh, goodness. I'm so glad I did. this is not just two-dimensional characters biting each other. These are characters with histories and complex spirits. There is a mythology to the vampire world in Unbitten that also took me by surprise, it was captivating, and really drew me in. The sex scenes weren't gratuitous but seemlessly woven into the narrative, creating a rich, sexy, sultry, delicious, and mysterious world. I can't wait to read the sequel. In the meantime, I'm going to go have an almond pastry.

More About the Author

Like a lot of novelists, I've been writing since I was a child. This is my first paranormal romance, and I had more fun writing it than probably anything else in my career. The next book in the trilogy is set in Paris, with some of the same characters reappearing. So far, it is a little darker than Unbitten.

I've lived in France, and as you can probably tell if you've read Unbitten, I would desperately love to be living there again. Preferably where there are palm trees and no Lyme ticks.
