|Bookswagger Marcia: Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. I was really invested in Dark Secret, it did not read like a short story Mrs. Howell gave it her all. I loved the peak the story gave us into the well being of the MacNachtons. Murdina was a brave woman making her own way in a time that almost never happened. Sir Gillanders (read to find out his true identity) was a great and protective hero what we all want in our dark vampire heroes.||Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. This story had me truly invested, we spent almost the entire read with the couple, with a few complications which made the plot extra juicy, very well done especially in a short story. I mean we have fae, vampires, plots to overthrow the throne and people trying to kill a witch. This was an exciting read.||Three Crowns, swagger jacked, decent read. I enjoyed Never Been Bitten but it was not as strong as the other stories in Born to Bite. The concept was one I was excited to read about though. I love vampires in regency settings, we always read about them in today’s time and get glimpses of their past with this story we get to see them living the life.|
|Bookswagger Danielle: Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. I liked the mix of vampirism and emotions, I found it to be an interesting combination. The chemistry
between Murdina and Gillanders was instantaneous and believable.
|Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. This was hands down my favorite story in Born to Bite. I found I didn’t want it to end. I wanted to shake Rowan sometimes for not listening.||Three Crowns, swagger jacked, decent read. This story had me on the fence. Ellie was smart (nerds rule) so I found it hard to believe it took her so long to come to the big “realization”. Coupled with what I felt was an abrupt ending made me like it not love it.|
