Book Description

Live bait makes all the difference and Connie Bence works as vampire bait for an elite slayer force. She’s sent to Budapest to lure the city’s vampire ruler—Rurik—into a trap.

The intimidating, sensuous vampire turns the tables on her and captures her instead.
He introduces her to his dangerous world where blackmail determines her every move. To prove he’s not a ruthless killer, Rurik needs her help—but the stakes are high and the price might include her heart.

3.0 out of 5 stars A damn good good plot!!!! 5 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story certainly gets going quickly but the writing is stilted and it is a bit boring. And, I must say I got fed up with the number of times we were told of Connie's stiletto heels in the first few pages. I found the author's use of some inappropriate adjectives rather distracting. This book could really do with going over by a good editor to get it up to a 5 star standard, it certainly has that potential!

I expected it to be a bit like the Buffy stories, and it was to a certain extent. But it is a book more for teenagers than most adults. However, the plot was invented and reasonably well-thought-out. There are some exciting parts and some obvious sex thrown in for good measure.
I would thoroughly recommend it to teenagers who like well thought out vampire stories. However, more sophisticated readers would find it a little implausible, and irritated by the lack of attention to detail in the writing. But I still rate it as a good 3 stars, almost a 4.

4.0 out of 5 stars a trips down imagination road review 11 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy of Bait from Netgalley in exchange for my review.

Connie is part of a vampire slaying team, and the most dangerous part; she is the bait. With the team in Budapest, Connie's job is to lure the city's overlord, Rurik to his death, but despite knowing that he is probably guilty of something, Connie can't help but believe that he is innocent, and goes out of her way to protect him. Other people have other ideas, including Tane, and he is going to use Connie, Colby and the rest of their team to fulfill his plans.

I got so into Bait that I've already started book 2 of the series, Catch, though that shouldn't surprise me because I've already read another book by the same author (No Refuge) and loved that too!

Connie was a very complex character, on the outside she looked like a strong female lead, but then when you actually look at it, she could just be considered to be reckless. But saying that, she is smart and resourceful, but she isn't all powerful. She doesn't actually know how to fight, and it is only part way into the book that she begins to question orders.

What I found quite refreshing about Bait was that the Vampires retained quite a few classic traits, they don't drain their victims and they aren't inherently evil like Dracula, but they can't go out in the sunlight and the only ways to kill them are beheading, burning and staking. So often now vampire's aren't so restricted.

I thought that Bait had the perfect balance between the romance with Connie and Rurik, and the action packed events that happened in the book, there was quite a bit of political maneuvering too, all of which helped to create a fast pace and enjoyable read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Vampires galore... 28 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I started reading this I was not sure what to make of it. But, the more I read the more I liked.

Connie is the bait to lure Rurik, the overlord vampire, for a group of slayers led by Colby. The way her relationship with Rurik developed definitely got me thinking of the days when I was obsessed with Buffy the Vampire slayer, and the fact Buffy is mentioned left me in no doubt that the TV series must have influenced the author.

However, once the plot developed and got darker it was more about control, power, gore and blood-ties. This made me think of the "House of Night" series.

I raced through the last third of the book, but was confused at the info dump... Everything happened all at once!

Then before I knew what was happening the book ended. My kindle said I had 20% to go - but I was finished! Confusing... There are also a few scattered typos around which need to be sorted, and some minor formatting issues.

Anyway, I got this free so it was an enjoyable read overall. I would recommend if you were a fan of Buffy or the "House of Night" series... Although, the sexual scenes in this book definitely make is more suitable for an older audience. Saying this, it was not what I would class as erotica, and I was pleased to see this was not just about lust!

It has left me intrigued...

(BTW - there are no werewolves or shifters in this story - I was confused when it was listed under that free category too!!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars HOOKED ON BAIT 7 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A book about vampires is for teenagers - right?

I want my books, whatever the genre, to have a good storyline, with characters that I can at least like if not identify with. The book should have twists and turns to keep me interested and it should elicit some emotion from me - I have to care.

This book has it all. Anger, fear, lust, love, pathos, sadness, happiness, humour and relief - these are some of the emotions running through this book.

The main character who is telling the story is feistier that the feistiest feisty person I have known plus she has a great sense of humour and I loved her dry wit as she narrates the story.

The characters are well defined and I could feel their love and pain.

This is the first vampire book I have read and I loved it. So, in answer to the question at the beginning, no - books about vampires are not just for teenagers.
