is Blood Bytesí most popular escort these days which is
driving the previous numero uno, Kaylen Knight, into a near

Set in future where vampires
and such are known to all, murder is still a capital crime and
Tess plans to do everything she can to find her killer. Just
as important to her is trying to get a certain scrumptious
vampire out of her head. Devante also feels a connection to
Tess, but this isnít the time or place because there is more
going on beneath the surface, much more.
Susan Phelan has built an imaginative, detailed, future with sexy vampires, complex
women and rolled it all into a fast paced, exciting plot. I
liked and admired Tess for her grit and determination while
healing a broken heart. Devante is, well, divine, and I
couldnít help rooting for bad boy Kaylen. I only wish that
the climax itself hadnít been so rushed and somewhat curious.
Blood Bytes sinks teeth into the reader and
doesnít let go till the last page.
