Peek Inside Night's Kiss

Vampires killed my parents before my eyes when I was young. My revenge? I'll destroy every last one of them, starting with their king. Only one man can help me, Ryker. But I don’t know if I can trust him. And why are we having so much trouble finding the king?

As a human who hunts vampires, I risk death each night I take to the streets. Bloodsuckers are stupidly fast. I have only my wits, my practice, and my weapons.

Oh yeah, and my rage.

Vampires killed my parents before my eyes when I was young. My revenge? I’ll destroy every last one of the evil bastards, starting with their king.

But only one man can help me locate the king. Achingly tall, dark, and too-sexy-for-his-own-good, Ryker is gorgeous enough to be the vamp king himself. But the devilish arch to his black eyebrow, his white, unfangy grin, and rocking the daytime are good clues that he's human.

We’ll have to work together as uneasy allies if I hope to get my final revenge on the king—only now it seems evil monsters are also after our prey, and they’ll stop at nothing to see us all dead. And why are we having so much trouble finding the king?


An intriguing story with plenty of mystery and romance.” -Susan R., NetGalley

“I'm in love! You just have to love all the characters with their quirkiness and sense of humor.” -Nina S., Goodreads

“I've ready several books but Mary Hughes and have enjoyed them all including this one. Her vampires are wonderfully crafted and their counterparts as well. From beginning to end you're drawn into the story and kept at the edge of your seat.” -Julie D., NetGalley

A gripping and entertaining novel that kept me hooked till the end.” -Anna G., Goodreads

A wild ride for vampire lovers!” -Erika C., NetGalley 

“I loved Ryker and the search for Elias was full of mystery and action. The romance is slow building and the suspense of the plot is fast paced. It makes for an enjoyable read.” -Leah H., Goodreads

4.5 stars

So, I was a little surprised with Night’s Kiss. We were back in Meier’s Corners but with a woman who truly hated vampires. Hmmm, where was this going? Why would Mary Hughes make me work for a happy ending? Well, I got my answers with a couple of surprises.

Kat. Well Kat was really kind of an ...more

Kat is a human who hunts vampires, risking death with only her wits, practice, her weapons and her rage in her quest to avenge her parents by destroying every last one of the evil bloodsuckers – starting with their king.

I enjoyed this read but I did have some issues with it. To start I want to say that this is a standalone read but in my opinion you will have a better reading experience if you have read other books from this series and the Biting Love series. Characters reappear, places are revisited and events are ...more

As I haven't written about one in a while, you may not know how much I do love me some Vamps. Mmm, mmm, mmm! So given the opportunity to read Night's Kiss, I jumped at the chance. Once I began reading it, I couldn't decide if I'd made the right choice. Let me explain.

Kat is the second heroine in a s ...more

If you love slow burn romances or just vampires in general, take a bite out of this one! 

When a vampire hunter begins to fall for her prey, her vengeance on her family's killers are put in the spotlight. Even though she teams with a steamy vampire, their goals are not exactly the same..

It is one of ...more

By Laura November 25, 2019

I have to admit I’m completely geeking out. I’m a tad picky when it comes PNR reads. As I tend to repeat, ad nauseam *smirks*, I’m a PNR girl to my very core (it’s a dark, dark place *snorts*). So, as you can imagine, it takes a lot for me to come over all unnecessary.

I FREAKING loved Night’s Kiss. ...more

Exciting, action packed, emotionally thrilling and engaging adventure filled with exciting paranormal twists and magical turns.... was a great read. Really enjoyed this heart racing journey! ...more

By Linda November 16, 2019

WOW, wow, wow! What a great story; a new favorite. It was so good I hardly know where to start. But I will try.
Before I even get into the main characters I just have to say that the world building was SO good.
Kat, man I loved that fierce little warrior. She was going to slash her way through as m ...more

By Heather February 18, 2020

I hadn’t read the first book in this series, am not particularly a fan of paranormal romance, and had not read anything else by the author. So why did I pick this one up? I’m not sure, except the blurb sounded interesting and I was looking for a change in my reading lineup. And I’m glad I took the c ...more

By Kelsey December 02, 2019

A decent enough book, Night's Kiss followed vampire hunter Kat as she takes down rogue vampires on a quest for vengeance after vampires killed her parents when she was a kid. Bring in ancient vampire Ryker and sparks fly, just not necessarily the ones Kat was expecting.
The story is good, fairly typi ...more

Kat is on a mission and it leads her to Meier's Corners, where fate likes to smack the newest residents with an alternate reality jolt.
Ryker "appears" to help her with a gang of rogues and things get interesting.
This is a novel with females who can kick keister and defend what is theirs along with t ...more

By Nina October 25, 2019

I'm in love! You just have to love all the characters with their quirkynes and sense of humor. I love that Kat isn't a woman that gets easily blown away by a charming simile and that she doesn't throw away every she believes in for a crush. When she does it's a conscious decision. And Ryker is so cu ...more

By Leah November 12, 2019

I liked the story but I wish I had read the previous one because I feel like I missed out on a lot of world building. I loved Ryker and the search for Elias was full of mystery and action. Kat is a complicated character and I waffled between feeling sympathy and hope for her and dislike at her rigid ...more

It's the first book I read in this series and hope it won't be the last.
It's a gripping and entertaining novel that kept me hooked till the end.
I rooted for the well thought characters and loved the world building.
I'd be happy to read other books by this author.
Highly recommended.
Many thanks to the ...more

Oh wow! Loved this book. Kat is one badassed vampire hunter. Ryker is one badassed vampire, but to Kat is a yummy PI. As they battle looking for the king of the vampires, Ryker to save, Kat to kill, how is he going to tell Kat what he is!

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.
