**I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for participation in the blog tour**
Oh, this was such a fun read. I binged it in one sitting!
We follow Lucy, a lady on a quest though she can't make up her mind on what it really is. Does she want to be a vampire or does she want to be a vampire slayer? In this, she is assisted by Lord Byron, yes the literary bloke. He's such an amusing character, constantly causing chaos and believing he's a ladies man...when he's really anything but. I'm sure we all know one, that person that thinks they're the smoothest when it comes to romance but really hasn't got a clue. Nevertheless, he's so endearing, he wants to help but just usually goes about it the wrong way. Then there's Sham, a warrior with an unknown past who seems to also kinda like Lucy and Lucy definitely likes them.
Bloodlust & Bonnets is a rip-roaring adventure that pokes fun at romance and gothic tropes. Lucy is most definitely an anachronistic character, she doesn't belong in the time she's placed. She's headstrong, intelligent and isn't afraid to go after what she wants. I loved reading about her.
The art style is gorgeous and I really hope we see more of these three characters in future books.
Maybe something to do with Dracula...
