Daria can hardly believe her luck when Ganymede offers her the night manager position at the Woo Woo Inn. As a harpy, she’s expected to carry unsuspecting prey off to Tartarus, she really wasn’t expecting a callback for a job. Being a harpy hasn’t been an easy life for Daria, she’s never quite been scary or ugly enough. Her twin brother Kal has used his magic to change their appearance and help them fit in. Now’s her chance to shine, and with a judge among the guests at the Inn, Daria has no intention of failing.

Declan is a vampire from the Mackenzie clan sent to see what happened to some council members who previously went missing. What he finds is something evil with the intention of bringing the world to an end. There’s also the harpy that captures his attention and stirs up feelings that he’s kept under control for centuries. With some powerful non-human help, their plan is to bind Fenrir and prevent him from sacrificing Declan. If they fail, Fenrir will have the power to bring about a prophecy that will destroy the world as they know it.

One Bite Stand is the fourth book in the Mackenzie Vampire series. Every visit to the Woo Woo Inn, especially when cosmic troublemakers Sparkle Stardust and Ganymede are involved, is equal parts fun and dangerous. With the fabulous ability to entertain her readers through every page, Ms. Bangs has a writing style all her own. Wonderfully original, the story moves quickly and takes readers on an action filled adventure with a healthy dose of passion, sex and love. This is a well-rounded and enchanting paranormal romance.

I see Marked by Moonlight is next in your pile. That's too funny cause that's one of the books coming in my shipment. We review so many of the same books!

Have you ever read Nina Bangs? Sparkle Stardust is one of my favorite characters. She plays matchmaker to the most unlikely of couples. :)

Fabulous taste in books, right? *grin*

Wendy said...

Woo Woo Inn *snickers* that's so awesome. I've read only one of her books but I really liked it so I'll definitely check this one out.

Oh and Sparkle is awesome and the cat! His name is Ganymede, right?

One Bite Stand...I really like that play on words. :D

Kimberly Swan said...

Wendy - Yes, Ganymede is the mysterious cat with attitude (and a very big sweet tooth!).

T.C. - With a title like that you just know there's a sexy vampire involved. :)
