When top Minneapolis exec Ric Holiday says refuses to design an ad campaign for Meiers Corners, Dr. Synnove Byornsson is sent to plead the city’s case.

On the way to Holiday’s penthouse, Synnove is accosted by rowdy drunks and her blouse is torn. Enter Holiday, with his tousled blond hair, blue eyes, and sinewy strength barely civilized by suit and tie. He’s style over substance, everything she hates, but when he drapes his coat over her she starts to discover he’s more than mere sizzle.

Each book in the Biting Love series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed in any order.

Welcome back to Meiers Corners, the vampires that call it home and the woman who love them, and the vampires that want to take it over. Nothing much has changed except that we are adding a few new p ...more

Ok-what do I love more in a story than a hot love scene? Quirky, intelligent characters who (despite their outward perfection) have it in them to be humble. Characters (human or vampires, demons, weres, shifters, etc.) who make it his/her business to help others--whether by trade or on personal time ...more

Synnove is on a mission, to get hot ad man Ric Holiday to create an ad campaign for her town. Synnove doesn't really have experience in pitching an idea, after all she is a doctor on a self appointed sabbatical. but that doesn't stop her on her quest.

Ric is intrigued by Synnove, she blurts out rando ...more

This was my first book to read by Mary Hughes and I loved it. It engaged me from the first paragraph and kept me until the last. Synnove tells this story in first person so the reader really gets a sense of her quirky yet honest character. Her journey from disillusioned doctor to actualized mate to ...more

Another fun, hot, sexy entry in the Meiers Corners vampire series. Although this one doesn't actually take place in the quaint little town, the conflict is all about protecting Meiers Corners from those who want to change its image and make it the Midwest's Sin City. Image is everything to both main ...more

Not as slapstick funny but still good.

6th in the series and definitely not my favorite but pretty good! I liked it we knew a brief mention of Sinnove from a different book. I liked we still got glimpses from Rics POV too! ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Mary Hughes

I write wickedly fun romantic adventures and steamy paranormal romances, stories that crackle with action and love. Challenging, alpha men--and women not afraid of a challenge. Oh, do the sparks fly when he meets THE woman guaranteed to infuriate and inflame him most. In real life I'm an author, a spouse and mother, a flutist, a computer geek, and a binge-TV-watcher of The Flash, Elementary, NCIS, and Wynonna Earp.
