Am I experiencing love bites or misdirected aggression with my cat?

I've been reading online about love bites and that they are redirected aggression. I thought this might be what I'm experiening with my cat, but there's one thing that doesn't quite fit. Before she bites me, she grabs my hand with her paws and puts it on her head like she wants me to pet her, then when I start petting her she starts biting me. Is this misdirected aggression, and if so why does she act like she wants me to pet her if she really doesn't?
