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.

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 sil ...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 town f ...more

By Mrs. Missive February 12, 2010

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

By Mitch January 18, 2018

The more I read on, the more I see similarities in narration style as is in Shelly Laurenstons work. Lots of crazy oddball humour that can't help but make you do a double-take before bursting out laughing at the shear insanity. Let's not forget to mention the sex scenes; very hot indeed.

This follow ...more

By Gladys September 13, 2017

Biting Nixie by Mary Hughes is an excellent read. This is a laugh-out-loud funny romantic-comedy paranormal romance. It is book #2 in the Biting Love series. Features the classic opposites attract trope. I loved Julian and Nixie. Their story is filled with witty banter and blazing chemistry. Book co ...more

By Lucinda July 09, 2018

Very good

Nixie isn't your ordinary heroine. She's tiny, spunky, sassy and has more than enough 'tude for two people. I needed subtitles for half the stuff she was saying! And poor Julien was in the same boat. I have to admit I got a big kick out of his confusion, too. I loved how the two of them arg ...more

Wild meet responsible

Nixie finds strange things happening all around her. Then the Mayor wants her to set up and run a festival to raise money to pay a lawyer. In walks Julian and turns her world up side down. We now have hot orgasms left and right. Vampires trying to take over the town to still bl ...more

By CJ April 14, 2020

Fun book even though I had trouble understanding Nixie. Julian was hot and Nixie, though quirky, was made of sturdy stuff and handled the changes very well. ...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 example o ...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 abs ...more

This book was so amazing. ...more

By Kimberly September 23, 2018

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 Nixie with the job of running her small town’s fundraising festival to pay for Julian’s legal fees, Nixie’s ...more

By Melissa July 19, 2013

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, has ...more

By Tamara July 26, 2011

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 inside N ...more

By SjA May 25, 2010

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 want ...more

By SaturNalia November 03, 2013

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 cha ...more

By Kathy July 21, 2013

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 tow ...more

By Helen August 04, 2011

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 button ...more

By Colleen August 11, 2013

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 ne ...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 fo ...more

By Goobledybook March 22, 2014

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 imp ...more

By Bodacious September 17, 2019

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. Then I get to fall in deep lust with the characters and the story line AND find out it is part of a series so I can have more debauched fangy ...more

By Netanella October 31, 2013

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 stu ...more

By jD January 21, 2010

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 laughed out loud at several scenes. It is a perfect rainy day book. Intense sexual situations that are well written and fit ...more

By Denise April 15, 2011

I liked this book even better than the previous one. I loved the connection between Nixie and Julien and their constant battering.. :P
It was a bit long but i never acually got bored and the festival was absolutely hillarious...I could have died from laughing in the cheeseballs scene... lol.. !!!
