Summary

The only thing worse than falling for a tortured, broody vampire who has sworn off love and happiness? Learning vampires can make babies, after all….

After he took my ancient virginity, Baron Blackmore insisted he'd made a terrible mistake. He told me to stay as far away from him as I could get.

He practically gave me a “get knocked up with my baby and keep it a secret for as long as you want” free card. But I’ll tell him the truth eventually. Once I convince him he isn’t the monster he thinks he is. He’s a fierce, passionate, protective man who deserves the love and happiness he’s pushed away for so long.

And he deserves it with me and our daughter, no matter how many obstacles stand in our way.

The adventure continues!

The adventures in the eccentric town of Nightfall continue for the Wonderfully sisters and the Blackmores in My Big Fat Bloodsucker Secret Baby! Even if you aren't a paranormal reader (I normally don't read paranormal romance), you need to read this series. The books hook me from page 1.

You can't go wrong with narrators Shane East and Lili Valente. Both are extremely talented and capture the characters perfectly.

Baron Blackmore is punishing himself for the sins of his past. Annie Wonderfully is determined to break through his self-imposed walls. Baron describes Annie best:

"Annie is magic. She's passion and beautiful, terrifying possibilities..."

Quirky supernaturals, a caring Kraken, Laura the bear, and a hint of mystery are just a few things you will find in this book. Bella Jacobs weaves a wonderful, fun tale that entertained from beginning to end. I can't wait for the next book!

Full-Swoon,deliciously sweet left me wanting more

What a deliciously sweet, tender and fun listen, this story was full-swoon and sucked me in and left me wanting more! (pun intended)

I’m a Vampire-Witch hybrid kinda gal, and I love me some PMR romance, add the perfect pairing of Lili Valente and Shane East, and I knew from the get-go I was going to love this book,

This is the second book in the Wonderfully Witches of Nightfall series centred around the mystical town of Nightfall and can be read as a complete stand-alone, but contains characters that are inter-connected with her first book: My Big Fat Blood Suckers Wedding which starred Darcy and Blair.

It centres around the Vampire family: The Blackmore brothers and the leading Witch coven the: Wonderfully sisters and this is Baron and Annie’s story along with their families, and the other mystical: some loveable and others forgettable and down right treacherous supernatural beings we meet along the way.

Baron the handsome but tortured and broody vampire and the beautiful Annie the eldest Wonderfully sister who is all sunshine, and positive and sees the goodness in Baron’s dark and grumpy. Baron spent his whole mortal life denying and blaming himself for his perceived tragic past and Annie can see through his broodiness and knows they share something with each other.

One thing leads to another, and Baron rescues Annie from falling into the swamp and they share a night of steamy, swoony passion together where Baron not only takes her ‘V’ card but Annie finds out she is pregnant with his child! Annie needs to find a suitable time to let Baron know of the miracle they created, all the while Baron continues to torture himself and deny his feelings for Annie, and in spite of this, he can’t stay away from her – their chemistry is undeniable and circumstances and will take them on twists and turns before they reach their HEA.

Once again, Lili Valente and Shane East absolutely nailed the portrayal of Annie and Baron:

Shane was the perfect Baron: he took me on a delicious journey in his portrayal of the broody, sexy, tortured, grumpy Baron: #VampireShane is one of my all-time favourites and he absolutely nailed the assignment again. He continues to get better and better with each performance and it’s a delight to behold!

Equally, Lili was exceptionally perfect as Annie, she was unequivocally delectable in her portrayal of the sweet, caring, generous and very entertaining Annie – the perfect sunshine to Shane’s Grumpy Baron. I was extremely impressed with her male choice – particularly her British accent – it was outstanding! Such and amazing talent!

I absolutely loved this audiobook, it was so much fun, it was steamy and swoony in all the best ways with the perfect amount of humour, creepy, drama and suspense – it’s the perfect paranormal rom-com and such an easy listen – I cannot say enough great things about how much I enjoyed this book and series – a fantastic story from a fabulous author and flawless performers! I’m excited for what else is in store for us in this series: deserves way more than 5 stars and on my repeat listens!

Fantastically unique twist on vampires!

Nightfall is a fantastically unique place with such mysterious fun, funny, steamy characters ~ I grin ear to ear when visiting! My Big Fat Bloodsucker Secret Baby is book 2 in this series, and I’m so glad this was released on audio! It can be read by itself, but is best served if you read the series in order to get the full picture. I wholeheartedly recommend it! All of the characters are so rich and complex in the most delightful ways. Baron is a broody vampire, so his relationship with Laura, the bear, was such an unexpected treat. It is even more special considering he has cut himself off from anything capable of bringing joy out of misplaced guilt he can’t get away from due to his tragic past. Determined to continue punishing himself for eternity, he is really thrown off guard by Annie barreling into his world and possessing his heart, mind, and libido. He is so stubborn, but I really enjoyed Annie’s approach to show him he deserves to be loved (and really has no choice in the matter). Annie is just a brilliant character who lights up every scene with her quirky, determined, adorable self. She knows what she wants and goes for it. Steamy shenanigans happen when they come together, and the love story is just plain adorable. Every character from the Wonderfully sisters to the house kraken, Kitty, to the guardian spider, Janet, (and so many more) means you never know what might happen next ~ with the rich history, hilarious games they play, and overall sense of community…I’m here for all of it! There is an underlying mystery in the series centered around the Vampire’s stronghold, and I can’t wait to see what happens next in Nightfall!

Lili and Shane are so perfect for these characters, to bring out each complex layer and be silly but steamy and complicated. Shane is so good at the sexy brooding grumpypants vampire who is tortured by dirty bad thoughts and trying to save everyone around him, who promptly turns into a squishy love-struck doting partner. Lili’s performance as Annie is perfection, and her Boston accent for the operator is hilarious! This story is just plain fun, funny, and super steamy and exciting with outstanding performances by both narrators. MORE PLEASE!!

All the stars! I just love the town of Nightfall!

I really loved Baron's friendship/relationship? with Laura the bear. He's such a good person and yet he doesn't think he deserves any happiness because of what happened to his family years ago. He definitely doesn't think he's worth Annie taking a chance on him. What he has yet to learn is that she is a stubborn and determined to change his mind even with their surprise situation. I could not put this book down because I didn't want Annie and Baron's story to end! So much great humor. Swoony and romantic lines. I fell in love with them. If you love grumpy swoony vampires and funny paranormal romance then you will love this book and all of the quirky people in the town of Nightfall!
Lili Valente and Shane East absolutely killed it in this book! They nailed every bit of humor and emotion with Bella's characters. Also...Baron's (Shane East) recitation of sonnet 116, SWOON!

So cute!

This is such a fun (and silly) paranormal romance that doesn’t take itself too seriously. I love Baron, with his surly attitude, and the way that bubbly Annie is just going to look right past it, lol. These two have a somewhat strange chemistry between them but the heart wants what it wants.

Fun grumpy/sunshine!

“My Big Fat Bloodsucker Secret Baby” has it all. Comedy, steam, mystery and lots of feel good moments. The Wonderfully Sisters and the whole town of Nightfall are an amazing bunch and I love reading their stories.

One freak storm and a one nightstand, weeks later Annie discovers she’s pregnant. With a Baron’s (who is a vampire) baby. Which should be impossible since he’s a vampire. But Annie has been in love with Baron and is determined to make him see that he is a good person and will be a great father too. But Baron is convinced that he got what he deserved when he was turned and doesn’t deserve any happiness.

Grumpy/Sunshine is my absolute favorite troupe and I was not disappointed by this story! Annie and Baron were the perfect sunshine and Grumpus. Baron lived in solitude and was determined to suffer for the rest of eternity. Then this magical, happy Witch comes into town and throws a wrench into those plans. I could not get enough of these two together and I loved their story so much. Kitty the Kraken was the best and I loved her being in the story. Every house should have a house Kraken like Kitty. I can’t wait for more from this series.

Shane East and Lili Valente were so good as Baron and Annie. I love that Lili narrates her stories, it adds such a person touch to it. And I’m always happy to listen to a grumpy Shane East.

Romantic Page-Turner

A perfect book to devour in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down. Except to update my husband who, despite insisting it isn’t his “type of book,” kept pestering me for updates. If you’re looking for a romantic tale with a paranormal twist, you will adore “My Big Fat Bloodsucker Secret Baby” just as much as I did.

Grumpy hero and sunshine heroine are my favorite combo

This series just gets better with each book. I just loved reading about Grumpus Baron and happy sweet Annie. Their unexpected and miraculous pregnancy is the reason Annie finally decided to go after what she most wanted, a forever with Baron. Annie Wonderfully and her sisters recently found out they are witches from a long line of witches and moved to the supernatural town of Nightfall to live in the falling down familial home. Baron Blackmore is a 200 year old vampire who believes his past mistakes make him irredeemable and is not interested in a relationship and spends his time suffering alone in cabin in the swamp. An errand during a freak snowstorm and near death from hypothermia results in a one night stand an accidental pregnancy that should be impossible. Now that she knows she’s pregnant, Annie is determined to be a family with Baron and thus the HEA journey begins. The story includes what you’d expect from this genre - mildly dangerous situations, paranormal creatures, loyal friends and family, tragic back stories, mystical coincidences, snark, and laughs. On their way to their HEA, there is a small bit of angst and there is growth for both characters. The book has a little bit of everything - sweet moments, sexy times, real life issues, imperfect characters, laugh out loud moments, and so much love. So expect to laugh, swoon, cry, cringe, and cheer. I am excited to read the next book in this series teased about in the epilogue.

This is a duet narration. Lili Valente and Shane East did a phenomenal job narrating the story and characters into life with enough change of inflection, tone and cadence to voice multiple characters quite convincingly. Is there anything better than listening to Lili Valente narrating her own book?

Fang-tastic good time!!

My Big Fat Bloodsucker Secret Baby by Bella Jacobs was a fang-tastic good time in audio! Lili Valente and Shane East narrate this audio, and were the perfect pairing for Annie and Baron. Lili conveyed Annie's witty, determined, and passionate sides perfectly! She was such a ray of sunshine (no pun intended) to Baron's dark and broody side! Shane East was downright delectable as grumpy, moody, and loyal Baron! Both narrators also did an amazing job showcasing Annie and Baron's magnetic, alluring chemistry! This audio was so much fun, and not to be missed!
