Hmmm. Read this one while also reading one of Ward's BDB books. Bad decision, as this one suffered greatly by comparison. Ward does the whole vamp world much better; more descriptive, more character depth, and more convincing. The best part WOULD have been the dream sequences where the hero was really "servicing" the heroine in her sleep, but even those scenes paled in comparison to V's and Jane's in the OTHER story I'm reading. Another problem for me - the length; a scant 170 pages in fairly bi ...more
(This book has been given to me by the author to review it)

“A Taste For Passion” is the first book in the Kendrian Vampires series by Patrice Michelle and I have to say that it’s a powerful start! Fast-paced and erotic as hell, this book knows how to arouse the senses!

The story is about Rana, a young woman who recently lost her beloved grandfather and Lucian, a vampire who has lost his mate many years ago and now he’s expecting her reincarnation. One day Rana bought a ring which belonged to hi

A Taste for Passion is HOT! HOT! HOT! I love the way Patrice Michelle wrote Lucian's character. This man knows what to say to a woman. I kept thinking: why can't men really talk this way? Then I remember, oh yeah, it’s only those sexy, gorgeous vampire guys that can talk heart-swooning romance. But this is why I read books, and author Patrice Michelle is definitely an awesome Romance author. Michelle pulled me into this fantastic vampire world. And I will be reading more about these gorgeous vam ...more
Racked with grief over her grandfathers death, the last thing Rana wants is a relationship. Lucian has been waiting over 70 years for the reincarnation of his last love to be born again. It just so happens that person is Rana...

For the entire review please go to the Best Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Review site on the web, Bitten By Books for the review of Kendrians: A Taste For Passion (Book 1) in it's entirety. You won't be sorry.

I really liked this but i just wanted more all around from it
Heroine:I liked her well enough she didnt do any tstl stuff or any other obnoxious things. I wouldve liked to see her be a little less tragic though and a little more tough. Her grief over losing her father was fine and an important plot point but the other stuff that she just did "woe is me" over for half the book got a little old
Hero:he got so close to perfect. But right as i was thinking how he had hit the perfect balance between do

Lucian has waited decades for the reincarnation of his beloved Elizabeth to appear. And just when the desolate vampire was about to give up hope, he meets Rana. He is drawn to her right away, but her identity is confirmed as his lost love when she makes a connection to the spelled ring that once belonged to Elizabeth.

Rana is mourning the death of her grandfather and fears at first that her attraction to Lucian is really just a way to fill the emotional void in her life. But every night when she

I had a difficult time continuing to read this book. I kept getting bored and wandering off.

For some reason, even though the premise would indicate a story that I'd like, the execution fell short. Part of it was due to details that made me stop and blink, jolting me out of involvement in the story.

I liked it, but felt it was lacking somehow. Things were just so rushed. BUT, I did enjoy the idea of the story and the characters all have potential. I'll look into the next book though. Mainly to see how she'll deal with her bookshop now that she's not herself anymore.

Loved it!! Great story, kept my full attention at all times. I cound't put it down.
I love how, I wouldn't necessarily say how they meet, but I love how their relationship comes to fruition. I love stories that have the element of magic and mystery of past lives and how two people will eventually find each other if they are destined to be together. I love Rana!! I love her character, her interests everything about her. And Lucien, mmmmmm he is absolutely deliciuos! Love his determination to get
It was a great story with enough mystery to keep me engaged. Now I would like to know about the other characters in the book!

This is a pretty good vamp romance, with a little drama thrown in. I will most likely give the rest of the series a shot.
This one was frustrating in that it had all the right ingredients but they just weren't arranged in the dish to make it exciting. All three stars are for the erotic elements. Ms. Michelle knows how to deliver a sex scene with a punch. The story potential didn't quite get there for me HOWEVER I plan to read the next one because I think the potential might show up. Ms. Michelle has some skills so I am going to assume there were execution problems in this first book. What can I say, hope floats.

I read this book a long time ago, when Ellora's Cave published it. I went back to read it again because I'd enjoyed it so much. I love how the hero in this book is such a romantic. He's waiting for the return of his love and is willing to give the heroine time to get to know him. He's lost love once. He has no intention of losing it again. If you like heroes who have no trouble expressing their feelings, then you'll enjoy this book.
Trish Leger
When Patrice first wrote the story, she had a poll on a website asking what the title should be. I suggested A TASTE FOR PASSION, and it stuck!

Very good, sensual, romance. You will not be dissapointed in Patrice's writing. And keep a lookout for a young, troubled girl named Trish!!

Omg. If u love Lara Adrian u will love this book. I'm suppose to b working right now but I couldn't put it down. I'v finish this book in 4hours, how crazy is that. It has a fantastic world the book are based in. Hot sex. Awesome HEA. I LOVED LOVED LOVED IT.

Cheap download for the Nook. Not bad, not great, but I wouldn't mind reading more, some of the background characters intrigued me and I would like to learn more about them. Felt a more like an old school romance novel, sweet love story.
Another new Author I have found and love, after reading A Taste For Passion, I bought A Taste For Revenge and I am almost done and getting ready to go buy Duncan's story A Taste For Control!!!
Sad that Lucian & Rana's story couldnt be the size of a full novel, but Im feeling they will be "dominant" characters in the series.
3.5 stars good quick read.

Era de fácil lectura y sencillo de seguir la trama, fue agradable para una leer en la noche
I read the first book in this series several months ago and it was okay. I just couldn't get into this one.

Born and raised in the Southeast, award-winning author Patrice Michelle gave up her financial calculator for a keyboard and never looked back. Thanks to an open-minded family who taught her that life isn't as black and white as we're conditioned to believe, she pens her novels with the belief that various shades of gray are a lot more interesting.
