That Killer Smile
THERE WILL BE HEAT...
Vampire Catherine Adair gave up trying to find her perfect match ages ago. But that didn’t stop her from founding London’s super successful vampire dating site. When a smoldering vampire overlord from her past launches an interspecies speed-dating service, Catherine vows to crush the competition….
"Yes, alternative -- you know, BDSM, swinging.. vampires."
THAT KILLER SMILE matches up two characters I've been really keen on since.. probably book one, but definitely book two. Lyons is no stranger to hilarious snark banter (book one is still my favourite couple and it had tons of it!) and I was so excited to see her add in a juicy vamp-on-vamp hate to love dynamic. And it definitely lived up to my ...more
Cat and Ronin have a heated past. A past that Cat probably would like to forget. But Cat has worked at getting her Vampire Dating site to become successfully. Ronin has always thought of Cat but he is also a Vampire overlord. Ronin and Cat do a lot of head ...more

THAT KILLER SMILE was a fun and sexy read! It is the third book in Juliet Lyons paranormal series, the Bite Nights Series, but can be read as a standalone. The series is about a dating service for vampires and humans and in Juliet Lyon's frictional world humans are aware of vampires ...more
A word to the wise: book three contains spoilers. It includes updates from characters in the previous installments.
Catherine (Cat) Adair is a beautiful dark-haired vampire. She’s self-reliant, assertive, and hates “egotistical” Scottish vampires. And hell will freeze over before she lets him kiss her again!
Ronin McDermott is arrogant, insufferable, and London’s vampire overlord. Go ahead and include “egotistical” notorious womanizer to his list of long-running attributes. He ju ...more

I very much enjoyed installment #3 in the Bite Nights series! Ronin is the vampire ancient and overlord of London. He's bored and in a rut. Running the vampire club and going through women like water no longer holds any interest. Only Cat holds his interest. After their one night together he can’t forget her, but she hates him.
I was excited to read Ronin and Cat's story because they've been ...more
Ronin’s red headed, fiery temperament and Catherine’s waspish overtones won me over once I delved beneath the surface and discovered two very lonely people who were basically screwed in life by circumstances of birth. Their individual histories were darker than I expected, but it went a long way in explaining why they rubbed the other the way they did. That alone gave the story a depth I truly wasn’t expecting, yet highly enjoyed!
And the attraction! Good gads, pheromones were all over t ...more
While we weren’t in the room with Cat and Ronin when they had their elicit one-night-stand, we definitely watched the repercussions. Cat tried her best to hide behind her snarky demeanor, determined to avoid falling for the womanizing bastard. Ronin, on the other hand, is just trying to keep his head above water. He was irrevocably ...more
Catherine Adair is sexy, sweet, quirky and fun founder of London's super successful Vampire dating site. She gave up on finding her perfect mate ages ago and did not expect the sparks that fly when a smoldering vampire overlord from her past becomes competitio ...more
This is not your typical vampire book with typical vampire beliefs. These vampires can walk in the sun, eat food, and cannot create another vampire unless they are an ancient.
Ronin was not a likeable guy to me at first, and I really wondered what Cat saw in him when they first met. Ronin started to change after their second meeting and slowly grew on me.
It was interesting that the vampire murders were tied in with Cat and the whole reason behind it ...more
Always trust the cat’s judgment of people.

I loved the storytelling + the characters
The storytelling + the character's build were awesome!
Didn’t expect the chemistry between cat and ronin. They are two strong characters and when combined they are explosive. This book has accompanied me during the weekend and nights after that. Thank you for this wonderful story.
So, what did I like about it?
I am already a fan of Juliet Lyons' writing style; I find her stories very easy to read. I liked how she mixed fantasy and reality to create a world that I can easily believe in and I love the new twists she created for her vampires, how they are made, the origins of the vampire race and their society/social hierarchy. I look forward to meeti ...more
The Bite Nights books are more than just another vampire romance series. The stories revolve around the characters and regaining their humanity and/or happiness, if the humanity part isn't possible. Catherine buries a lifetime of heartache under a chip on her shoulder the size of a large boulder. But despite her grief, she's made it her mission to help others find happiness. Ronin has lived an eternity being something that he swore he would never be. He sets his sights on Catheri ...more
Cat Adair is the founder of V-Date.com, a London-based dating service that connects humans with vampire dates. Business is far from booming after a vampire serial killer used the site to find his victims in the previous book. It gets even worse when the local vampire club starts hosting speed-dating nights.
Ronin McDermott is the owner of that club and London’s “vampire overlord,” the ancient ...more
I really liked the world that Ms. Lyons has created here in her Bite Nights series. She does a nice of job explaining the details too, without giving us crazy info dumps. There's a good balance of suspense, mystery, and romance here, and I loved how sh ...more
I had loved the two previous books in this series, and while the writing is as brilliant, THAT KILLER SMILE is entirely devoid of the charm that made those first two instalments so enjoyable. Ronin is a rude a-hole, Cat is a pitiful, spineless wimp; I liked neither of them, and I honestly didn’t care about their “romance”, which was basically sex and spouting insults, and of course a misunderstanding. What little story there is consists ...more
Ronin is an Ancient overlord of London and Catherine is the wonder of V Date. They hate each other so much but can’t resist each other. Eventually that hate turns to tolerate then turns to more and they can’t get enough of each other. This story was action packed, intense, and fun to read. Ronin is in all the books but this is his story and I feel for his past but I’m so glad he found Cat. She didn’t have an easy past either and I think because of that they found in each of a kindre ...more
