"Twice Bitten" has an interfering, controlling mother that goes to extremes to keep her daughters close, even when they are well over 100 years old. It also has someone trying to kill Elspeth which is really hard as she is immortal. Add a couple of mortals and a life mate that has been forgotten about and you have one very funny story with some very unique and creative characters. This book is part of a series about the Argeneau family, but while events that appear in other books may be mentioned in this one, it can be read without having read any of the other stories. However, this world and its inhabitants are so much fun, you may find yourself addicted. I know I am and this book reinforces why. The humor as well as the multidimensional plot line kept my interest throughout the story. I can’t wait for the next book!

He also thinks Elspeth might be taking advantage of his grandmother. Suddenly, the freedom Elspeth wants is done and in it’s place is chaos. Can she ever get control of her life?

Now that she’s moved away from her controlling mother, she’s tracking down rogue vampires and enjoying some overdue freedom. A fling would be fun. A life mate can wait. Yet to Elspeth’s surprise, her landlady’s hot grandson checks both boxes.
Wyatt fell instantly in love with Elspeth four years ago. He’s stunned to run into her again, especially as she has no memory of him. Then again, there are a lot of things about Elspeth that don’t make sense, like the miraculous speed with which her wounds heal. And the chemistry that transforms every touch into an explosion of desire. But with mysterious “accidents” besieging Elspeth, the ex-Special Forces soldier appoints himself her bodyguard. But time is running out to uncover the truth about her enemies—and rediscover the man determined to love her for eternity.
