"Suspense, betrayal with an added touch of romance"

Alexa O'Brien is a hunter for hire, the last person she ever thought she would need to help would be her alpha and former lover, Raoul. However, when women start dying that he has a connection to in some way he asks her for help to prove that he is innocent.

As she is trying to solve the case, Alexa is also doing everything she can to stay away from Arys. Something about the vampire keeps drawing her towards him even though he is not the man that she loves and wants. After a night with Arys, they made a connection that now has them each seeing through the others' eyes and picking up the others' traits. She also feels that she has betrayed Shaz, although they have never even been on a date she knows that he is the one that she belongs with and is her true mate.

While more women are murdered and Raoul is the leading suspect, time starts to run out for Alexa to find the real killer. She is also finding answers to questions she has had about who killed her family. Will she be able to prove Raoul innocent, or is he guilty? Will she be able to break the link between her and Arys and save the love she has found with Shaz?

Once Bitten will keep you wondering whom will Alexa choose. And, did Raoul kill those women? The suspense alone will keep you interested. The love and trust Shaz has for Alexa is heartwarming. I believe we will read more of Alexa, Shaz and Arys, at least I hope.
