Love BitesTitle: Love Bites

Author: Angela Knight

Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy

Series: Mageverse (Book #9.5)

Publication Date: September 2, 2014

Format: Paperback, 320 Pages

ISBN-10: 0425254917 (Berkley/Penguin)

ISBN-13: 978-0425254912 (Berkley/Penguin)

Reviewed by: Roxanne


In the brand-new “Oath of Service,” Angela Knight introduces the Doms of the Round Table and a kinky circle of pleasure, pain, and power as she returns to her “sexy as hell” (Heroes and Heartbreakers) Mageverse world for a new twist on the Arthurian legend.

Morgana le Fay finally gets what’s coming to her in this novel-length story. After a fight with a dragon goes wrong, Morgana takes an Oath of Service to Percival, vampire Knight of the Round Table. Percival and his partners, Cador and Marrok, decide to give Morgana a taste of bondages and submission she’ll never forget. What they don’t know is that the lovely witch is keeping secrets that could destroy them all. To make matters worse, the dragon is plotting a deadly revenge….

In “Be Careful What You Wish For,” a beautiful vampire and her two vamp lovers lock horns with a wizard with the ugly habit of refusing to take no for an answer. When he casts a spell on Beau and Decker, Amanda finds herself the object of both men’s lust. She’s had some yummy threesome fantasies along the same lines, but since the men hate each other, she figured it was never going to happen. But when it does, things get a lot more kinky than Amanda expects.

In “The Bloodslave,” Angela Knight’s classic “must read…highly erotic” (*The Best Reviews) novella, a female mercenary comes under fire during a hunt. The beautiful, virginal, and very human Verica is captured by three hungry alpha vampires driven deliriously feral by her purity. But they desire more than her warm blood. They want her body, leaving Verica more vulnerable than ever before—and loving every minute of it.

Quick & Dirty: A short erotic novel, and two erotic novellas…..

Opening Sentence: “The bald leather-clad man hauled the plump, pretty blond across his lap and flipped her short PVC skirt to reveal lacy stockings, a garter belt, and no panties at all.”

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Oath of Service is a short novel focusing on Morgana Le Fay and three knights, Percival, Cador and Merrick. Although the majority of the romance is between Morgana and Percival, both Cador and Merrick are involved as well. They are a team sent out to protect humanity from magical creatures. In this short story they are hunting what they believe to be a werewolf who has been eating girls. However, when they find that their foe is more dangerous than a normal werewolf, as a punishment Morgana must offer an Oath of Service to Percival. That’s when things get kinky…..

Be Careful what you wish for is a novella that deals with Amelia and her fantasies (sort of) about her two lovers Beau and Decker. After a wizard casts a spell on them they end up engaging in many threesomes.

The Bloodslave is set in the future and when Verica is captured by three vampires, things take a turn to the kinky…

I thought Oath of Service was really good, I have not read any of the Mageverse novels so it was my first experience with them. I don’t know if they are all like this or if this and the other stories were special just for this book. I thought it was a super interesting twist on Arthur, making all the males vampires and all the females from the legends witches. The author made other changes from the original legends, but all in all I was impressed, considering vampires are way over done for my tastes. They did get into bondage and multiple partners so if those things bother you I would not read any of the stories in this book.

The last two were short stories and not my favorite…they were all basically sexual with very little plot in either story. So if it had just been Oath of Service I probably would have thought more highly of this book, but don’t let my feelings deter you. If bondage and vampires is something  you enjoy or really are curious about, indulge yourself!

Notable Scene:

“She’d worked so hard to slay her demons. Yes it had been bad the first three or four decades, but as she’d put her first century behind her, she’d learned to ignore those black memories. She’d often gone years without thinking of either of them, though Mordred’s birthday could bring it all back. But then things had…changed. The last decade had been difficult one for Magekind as they’d found themselves fighting everything from demons, to dragons, to werewolves who were immune to magic.”
