Punk musician Nixie Schmeling is a hundred pounds of Attitude in a city full of Normal. She’s especially full of attitude after she’s volunteered to run Meiers Corner’s inaugural fundraising festival and finds out it’s to pay for a lawyer.

Six foot plus of black-haired, blue-eyed sex-on-a-stick, powerful attorney Julian Emerson has come from Boston to defend the Corners from a shady group of suits—and the shadier gang the suits control.

But even if they manage to succeed, what future is there for a tiny punk musician and a skyscraper blue-blood? And that’s before Nixie finds out Julian’s a vampire.

3.5/5
Uproariously funny, heavy on slapstick humour, Biting Nixie is bound to get you out of your funk when you desperately need it. The plot is not overly clever or even twisted, it's the execution of the story which you'll shell your money for. I was giggling all the way throuh it was just THAT... ...more

Laugh out loud funny -- great beach read

A quirky, offbeat musician who shuns authority, Nixie is a small town gal from a good family. Her mother is constantly trying to play matchmaker to find her a good husband. The Mayor ropes Nixie into coordinating a festival fundraiser to help save their tow... ...more

Ok even though most of the slang through the book had me hitting wikipedia, I loved this book. There was enough danger and conflict to make it interesting, plenty of steamy sexy scenes, and the most unique proposal I have ever read. ...more

~* 4.5 Stars *~
What can I say about Biting Nixie to properly convey the sense of fun and quirky freshness that's wrapped up so neatly into this delicious little package? Nixie Schmeling is a punk polka queen with her own band (Guns and Polka) and her own language (which I'd love to give an exampl... ...more

Kitty's review posted on Guilty Pleasures

4.5 Stars

Ah, Nixie. What a wonderful, whacky, loveable character she is. She had me rolling my eyes when we first met her in “Bite My Fire” and has me hysterically laughing in “Biting Nixie”. And Julian, well, what can you say about an uptight lawyer with... ...more

Nixie Schmeling is a pint-sized punk rocker full of attitude. Julian Emerson is a hot-shot suit-wearing lawyer from Boston. The two are as different as night and day, so when the mayor sticks Nixi... ...more

I loved this! I have missed my Paranormal Romance reading so much. And this book drew me in and made me want to go back and start re-reading my PR that I already have on my shelves.

This book was hilarious!! I loved Nixie. She is different, smart, snarky, sarcastic, got an attitude, in your face,... ...more

This book had me roflmao! I won't say I din't have a slight problem with the "hip" language, I may not be from the 1600's, but I guess I am hopelessly stuck in the 80's!But as Julian figured out the vernacular so did I. Generally I am not thrilled with books written in 1st person, but being insid... ...more

I love Nixie.. As far as punkish musicians go she's great. I easily understood her with out needing the explanations. She brings lots of humor.. I laughed out loud for most of the book leaving everyone around me looking at me like i'd lost my mind. From Nixie's mom trying to set her up, her not w... ...more

Quick, funny and hot. Nixie is a musician, frowns on control and spits in the face of responsibility. Julian is a lawyer, vampire, always in control and very responsible. These two opposites colide, when Julian is hired to protect Nicie's town from a takeover by Chicago vampires. I liked all the... ...more

It took a chapter or two before I got into this book because I'm not familiar with gaming or anime and didn't always get the heroine's dialog. That's the position the hero finds himself in as he tries to protect a very eccentric punk rocker from a gang of vampires who are trying to take over the... ...more

BITING NIXIE by Mary Hughes is HOT, HOT, HOT! This vampire book has one sassy heroine who reminds me of the lead in the movie JUNO, although Nixie is no teenager. Good thing because the sex is hot enough to steam your reading glasses. Nixie's sass is admirably counterpoint to her surprisingly but... ...more

Loved this book! It was so funny and kept interested (which the story has to for me to keep reading) and the hero and heroin their love seems so at odds with who they are but so right at the same time that you believe that it could happen and you really want it to. Nixie is thinking that she only... ...more

By Lori February 13, 2010

Maybe like 3.75 stars. Nixie and Julian are great characters, and the "different worlds" romance plot works well. I thought the depth and detail of the vampire community was lacking. A lot of "nobody knows." And the plot to takeover the town (by bad vampires) seemed thin and unconvincing. But the... ...more

First book I read in the series, and I really enjoyed. Took me a sec to catch on to Nixie's lingo, but once I caught on I was hooked. I liked how different Nixie and Julian were. I really like how by the end the had taken on traits of each other showing how well they balance each other out. Most... ...more

I don’t know what made me pick up this book but thank all the literary powers for that serendipity. Love it when I find a new vampire book that cracks me up.

Humorous paranormal romance that was a delight to read, particularly as the characters are so endearing. Our Nixie is like Peter Pan - she doesn't want to grow up, but is forced to when she is placed in charge of the town's fundraising charity event and made to partner with a maddening suit, the... ...more

This is by far my favorite Kindle purchase. The writer has fun with the characters and takes the reader along for the ride. There was nothing I did not like about this book.

I wasn't quite sure what to make of Biting Nixie when I started it, but by the time I was finished I was in love. This is so funny and surprisingly very sexy and hot! Normally I stick to the more 'serious' vampire books, but Julian! *purrmeow*! He and Nixie are a pair. It was a great read. I love... ...more

I really enjoyed Nixie. She is a spunky little thing who has a little complex about the fact that she is little. I can totally relate. The story moves quickly with the Watch trying to raise money to keep the bad Chicago guys away. The small town festival is funny to read about. Everything that co... ...more

What a great read! Nixie's voice throughout this book was unique and fun. It was also a fresh take on vampires, for those of you who like this genre but are tired of the same-old-same-old. The romance was HOT and the characters refreshingly quirky and unique. I was so glad that there are more boo... ...more

By Jenna February 02, 2010

This is the second book in this series and I thought it was really cute also. Nixie is hilarious! The only down side is that the plot seemed very similar to the 1st book...how the characters meet, figuring out what is going on in the town, etc., but was different enough to keep it interesting. ...more

By Kyra August 21, 2013

I would never think a stuffy suit wearing stud and an irresponsible punk rocker could make a great couple, but somehow Mary Hughes pulled it off. The relationship actually worked out realistically. The story was funny and fast paced, the sex was hot, and the love was sweet. ...more

By Toni (U.A.C.) July 27, 2012

I really like Nixie's character, aside from her being afraid to "grow up." She's funny and irreverent. Some of her comments have been hysterical. I’ve enjoyed the dialog in all of the Biting Love Series so far. ...more
