And completely undressed!
When her best friend disappears during Mardi Gras, microbiologist Claire Brookes is determined to find her. Her only lead is a bar called Once Bitten—a haven for the dark, melancholy and vampire-obsessed. And while Claire generally prefers science nerds over the Gothy children of New Orleans, something about the bar’s tall, dark and delish bartender makes her mouth water….
Bar owner Rafe Moreau is pretty sure that there’s more to Claire than uptightness and frumpy clothes. And as they delve further into the dark, seedy underworld of the Big Easy, Claire and Rafe turn to each other, discovering a sizzling hunger that won’t be satisfied.
But will one taste be enough?
Bein’ bad in the Big Easy…


This book was very hot and sometimes I consider Mardi Gras I different reality because there’s no way things like that could happen.
But I loved Rafe and his demons, he’s not perfect and we can actually see that some moments he’s not so sure of what to do, but in the end he’s always doing what it’s right and trying to help a girl, but mostly because he’s afraid what might happen to her if he doesn’t go along.
I liked some scenes and the investigation was just the right pace, but at times I think Rafe and Claire were at different places and didn’t know what to do with their feelings and how to be themselves.
The sex was not the problem between these two, but more along the fact they can’t share their feelings and both suffer from the same problem, but I actually enjoying the end and these two managed to find some common ground to talk.
