Just One Bite
Dead End Dating, Book 4
Lil Marchette owner of Dead End Dating and self proclaimed Vampire Extraordinaire is an expert at matching up anyone that needs a date be they lonely, desperate or life challenged to be politically correct. Recently thanks to a show called Manhattan’s Most Wanted, a local reality dating show, she has had more business that she knows what to do with including the biggest, baddest vampire from the big apple. A representative from the SOB (Snipers of Otherworldly Beings) visits her letting her know that if she can find him the perfect woman to take home to mama, one that he can marry then she will be able to keep her fangs and live. Lil has no other choice but to start searching fast and furious for the perfect woman as far as Vinnie Balducci is concerned.
Meanwhile while Lil is searching for Mrs. Right for Vinnie, Ash Prince and his two brothers are chasing down a rogue spirit that is trying to escape being thrown back to hell by possessing some clueless soul. While Ash is chasing him as he is controlling one body the spirit bumps into Lil and ruining her shoes. Being Lil she stops him with one hand to reprimand him and tell him he owes her for the shoes when his head turns around to look right behind him. I mean his front becomes his back, his eyes glow yellow and he lurches forward trying to get away. That is when Ash shows up letting her know exactly what is going on after the evil demon spirit has gotten away. He thinks that she has been taken over by the spirit and if she hasn’t then some one near her has and they need to find out whom. So Lil not only has that on her plate she has Demon hunting on it too. Because she realizes that her assistant Evie is now possessed by the spirit because the doorman she bumped into later after the attack and gave a card to come in later to DED and Evie was complaining about all the symptoms that Ash had explained the person would have that had been possessed. Ash did not want Lil to get involved in the process of getting rid of the spirit but she couldn’t risk losing Evie she was the best assistant anyone could have. So she enlisted Vinnie’s mother who is the only other one besides the Father to do the exorcism and since he was sick that only left Vinnie’s Mother.
Kimberly Raye is a wonderful author and she makes vampires chic and fun to read about. Just one Bite is a fun addition to the Dead End Dating series. The characters are vibrant and they make you feel like you are there in the room with the. I will definitely add this to my Kimberly Raye Collection.

THE STAKES HAVE NEVER BEEN HIGHER.
Lil Marchette, vampire extraordinaire and owner of Manhattan’s hottest hook-up service, is an expert at matching up the lonely and desperate (and sometimes dead). And thanks to the popular local reality dating show Manhattan’s Most Wanted, Lil has plenty of fresh blood to add to the mix–including the biggest, baddest vampire in the Big Apple. Vinnie Balducci, Brooklyn representative for the Snipers of Otherworldly Beings, is making Lil an offer she can’t refuse: find him the perfect woman or she’s going to be swimming with the fishes.
But Lil may not be the only one taking the plunge. The three hunky demon Prince brothers are poking around Lil’s office–hot on the trail of a rogue spirit trying to escape the land down under (not Australia) by possessing some poor, clueless human soul. Then Lil makes a startling discovery: The oblivious human vessel is none other than her loyal assistant, Evie. Between saving Evie from eternal damnation and saving herself from Vinnie’s lethal ultimatum, Lil is sure to be in for the most hellish ride of her afterlife.
