Silent Bite by Tina Folsom

Newbie vampire Oliver and Ursula, the woman he saved from a blood brothel, are finally tying the knot. But with Ursula’s old fashioned Chinese parents arriving in town for the traditional wedding, chaos soon breaks out—with Oliver always one step away from accidentally revealing to his soon-to-be in-laws that he and his extended Scanguards family are vampires.
And midst all the chaos and confusion, a stalker lurks and threatens to tear Ursula and Oliver apart before they can blood-bond.

Last February if you remember I went to Florida to the Coastal Magic book convention.  While there I met many of the authors of “1001 Dark Nights” series.  Tina Folsom was one such author.  I finally got to reading this story.  What can I say, I got a lot of books there.  This is not one of the anthologies, but a single novella.


A new vampire, Oliver, turned on the verge of death.  He saved Ursula, a young Asian woman from a lifetime of blood letting.  Her blood isn’t normal, it has the power to intoxicate vampires, and make them addicted.  For that reason, she has to actually orgasm before a vampire can bite her.  This somehow makes her blood not as toxic or addictive.  Oliver and Ursula are on the way to marriage, with friends and family arriving to celebrate the joyous occasion.  Trouble is, Ursula’s parents are very old world.  Her mother doesn’t think she should be marrying a non-Asian. Not to mention what she would say if they found out Oliver was actually a vampire.


Only one thing could ruin their day.  Okay two, there could be white wedding decorations which are bad luck.  Oh and the other thing could never happen.  The release or escape of an addicted vampire from the jail like asylum.  He must then accidently see her/smell her and want to retrieve what he feels he lost.  But that wouldn’t happen right?  Especially not when Oliver works for a private security firm, comprised of all Vampires.  Surely everything will be okay.


You know what they say about best laid plans right?  This was my first 1001 dark nights books, even though I still have three left from the con.  I enjoyed this story, it was short, but impactful in the way that good authors can make short stories.  Not knowing what to expect, as I never read the series.  It was a pleasant surprise to not only learn about the backstories but also about the characters.  I was able to jump into the world that the author created without having to read the first eight books.  This is particularly nice as it leads to me want to read more of them.


Overall it is a good short story.  I do plan on reading not only others in this series but also other 1001 Dark Nights books.
