Book Description

Aug. 31 2010 Vampyres of Hollywood (Book 2)
With her customary wit and dead-on satire, Barbeau skewers Hollywood and vamp lit alike, casting the paparazzi as werewolves and certain Hollywood “monsters” as the genuine article

Ovsanna Moore is a Hollywood siren, horror film legend, and cut throat producer. She also happens to be a 450-year-old vampyre. In the follow-up to the much acclaimed Vampyres of Hollywood, Adrienne Barbeau paints a wonderfully sly portrait of cinematic vampyres, as well as the nature of celebrity, and the entertainment industry. Her “Scream Queen” credentials make her the only author who could combine such a fastpaced, edgy plot with tongue-in-cheek references to the inner workings and vanity of Hollywood. A whirlwind of action, Love Bites is a clever take on vampyres readers will never forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Great Great Book Sept. 22 2010
By S. Aversa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
What a great book! I'm not really into Vampires. At all. But I have to say, this was very enjoyable. It was suspenseful, full of crime from the supernatural, in a modern day life. Seeing how the two worlds stepped on each other. Great. And just the right amount of graphic sex, but not so much that it gets tacky. I have to say, this book has sparked a new interest in vampires. And I am a 24 year old male. But they are very seductive and tempting in this book. Very great adult read. Over-all...not bad for a sophomore author! Can't wait for the next book!

2.0 out of 5 stars An insider's possible explanation of Hollywood March 24 2013
By Peter R. Divergilio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Adrienne Barbeau (Carol from the TV series Maude) - has attempted a humorous explanation of the entertainment Industry by postulating that there are real vampires among us. The storyline tries to move right along, but has to stop every now and then for Political comments designed to show everyone how bad Republicans are. It would have been better if she had thrown those out as a prologue so her story could flow.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Seductive Scream Queen does it again!! Sept. 7 2010
By Patty Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
"Love Bites" is the perfect sequel to Adrienne Barbeau's deliciously imaginative "Vampyres of Hollywood", which first introduced us to Ovsanna Moore, the seductive Scream Queen and head of Anticipation Studios - who just happens to be a vampire. Together with LA Detective Peter King and her band of legendary Hollywood Stars - who supposedly died years ago but are actually vampires awaiting their chance at a comeback (how great is that!) - they must hunt down and destroy the horrifying creatures who are slaughtering the Hollywood elite.

Then, just when you thought it was safe to go back in the studio, along comes "Love Bites" with a whole new set of nasty beasties and things that go bump in the night. Once again Ovsanna joins forces with Peter, and her outlandish band of Hollywood has-beens, to battle the supernatural forces of evil. Adrienne has once again given us a fast paced steamy thriller filled with richly fleshed out characters and tantalizing twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages well in to the wee hours of the morning. It's a great read!

"Love Bites" and "Vampyres of Hollywood" would make great movies! Reading it I felt like I was watching an old film noir. Let the kids have Twilight - Ovsanna will leave you thirsting for more! Just watch your toes. :-)

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring and simplistic June 3 2013
By R. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dropping names of Hollywood stars is not enough to make the book interesting and the whole thing is simplistic and tedious. I am surprised, because Adrienne was always highly intelligent and I doubt seriously if a book like this would satisfy her if she was reading it! I expected more from her.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like TWILIGHT, Vampire Diaries and Charlaine Harris, you'll LOVE this! Sept. 1 2010
By Book Junkie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
What a wildly entertaining, funny, smart book! It's even better written that the first one. One of the most charming aspects of the book is the way Barbeau creates the "lore" of her Hollywood vampires and her very unique spin on the mythology of these supernatural creatures. Highly original and deeply impressive in a genre that often relies on tired formulas and the reader's prior knowledge about the world and rules. Once you pick this up you won't put it down till the end, and then you'll be counting the days till (hopefully) the sequel hits the shelves. More please!
