Format: Paperback
"Born to Bite" is a sensual supernatural anthology featuring stories from talented authors Hannah Howell, Diana Cosby, and Erica Ridley. Early 1500's Scotland is the setting for Hannah Howell's "Dark Secret". Murdina Dunbar, homeless and without family, travels far to find her aunt and uncle. Hoping to meet up with some cousins too, she finds her aunt and uncle have passed away, and all her hopes for a family reunion are buried along with them in a cold, windy graveyard. With nowhere else to turn, Murdina accepts a position as a maid in the local keep, working hard and trying to find out about her cousin Adeline. Chosen to be the personal maid for the handsome and mysterious Sir Baldwin, Murdina finds herself irresistibly drawn to the darkly appealing nobleman. Sir Baldwin is actually Gillanders MacNachton, staying at the keep in hopes of finding out who murdered a member of his clan. Gillanders is no mere mortal, and Murdina has a secret of her own: she can read the thoughts of others. Realizing Murdina is his fated mate, he wonders if she will accept his true nature. Others do not wish for a happy ending for these two, and much mayhem is about in the keep. Gillanders and Murdina are more connected than they could have imagined, and it is a perilous bond indeed. Medieval Scotland is the era for Diana Cosby's "Highland Vampire". Drawn to a ceremonial stone circle by a compelling voice invading her mind, Rowan Campbell discovers a dying warrior. Aedan MacGregor, Laird of the Highland Vampire Coven, has been betrayed and left to burn in the searing rays of the rising sun. Unable to resist his allure, Rowan leads Aedan to the safety and darkness of a cave, and later allows him to drink a few drops of her blood to restore his strength.Read more ›

Rowan Campbell had been labeled a witch by those who only believed what they wanted. Rowan was told that vampires were mythical until the day she saved Aedan MacGregor, Laird of the Highland Vampire Coven from imminent death.

Aedan believes Rowan to be his mate regardless that she is human and he is determined to protect and save her. There is nothing simple and uncomplicated about their relationship and the longer they are together the more issues arise. Everything stands in the way of their love including the vampire and Fey community of which Rowan it seems belongs.

Rowan craves Aedan's love and he in return knows his existence is futile without her. However, those out to stop the relationship and their entire known life will not want stop hunting until they are destroyed. But is the enemy from the outside or could it be from within?

Diana Cosby writes a colorful, romantic, and action packed story. Ms Cosby leaves the reader with the feeling of overwhelming literary satisfaction.

The first story was interesting. the phonetic use of the Scottish accent got "verra" annoying after a while. I am not a fan, but it may not bother you. It could be a good series, but I am not all that inspired to find out. It kind of reminded me of Christine Feehan's work.The second story moved ridiculously fast. Way to much information and not enough development of characters. But at least the Scottish accent was toned down. I don't see myself reading anything from this author. And last but in no way least, the third story is my favorite. It takes place in England so although our vampire is technically Scottish there are no Brogues to speak of. Quick, witty, and silly this is definitely a series I can see myself getting into. It had a definite Alexia Tarabotti feel to it, and since Gail Carriger has ended that series this may just be able to fill that hole for me.

I loved this book! :)

It is a great series, "MacNachton Vampires", and this is the only one that was out in the series that I did not have.
Simply because I didn't know that it was a part of the series, because it never says MacNachton, or MacAdie, on the back, because the main character, "Sir Gillanders Baldwin", is undercover and using a false name.

Confused me a bit, but I figured it out, and I now own the whole series! At least until the next one is released! :)

Hannah Howell just seems to get the Scottish. Wether it's the pride they have, their fierceness, or their honor. She just gets it. She also seems to get the paranormal too. Such a great combo. A great addition!

Three stories about 3 vampires meeting their mates. In Hannah Howell's story efrica and jankyn's son falls for human and they run from hunters wanting to capture him. Erica Ridley's story is half fairy who falls for a vampire that his cousin is trying to kill to take over his coven. For Diana Cosby is a hunter Evan vampire searching for an escaped and ancient vampire to take back home so punishment can be given. Except he falls in love with her daughter instead.

All stories were good read. Explicit in the intimate scenes. However, the stories were short and I would've prefer longer.

Hannah is always a favorite strong of mine...strong women and strong men who appreciate them... I like encountering characters from other books I have read and enjoyed. The other new authors (to me) allowed me to try them without paying alot of money for them. The authors kept me entertained and engaged, with a different take on vampires in each one. The half fairy twist was entertaining with suspense tossed in! Well worth reading...
