Meet the Author

Mary writes like a rich layer cake--a layer of action, a layer of humor, a layer of red-hot attraction; repeat until happily full. Life is too short not to see the humor in it, and too short not to read page-turning books.

She is grateful for a husband who reads her stories and points out when she uses cubical instead of cubicle, two kids she loves, two grandcats who demand equal lap time, and most of all, you, her wonderful readers.

She lives in the Midwest with a basement full of spare computer parts and several musical instruments, including the husband's romantic cello and her flute for playing The Bird in Peter and the Wolf.

Biting Holiday Honeymoons (Biting Love Short Bites Book 1) by Mary Hughes has two short stories. Biting Halloween is about Elena and Bo's honeymoon being interrupted by vampires. I gave it four stars. "Then he turned and saw me. Our eyes met. "An ice-cold shiver ran down my neck. Dracula's ruby eyes were dead. Not blank but ghastly, as if the imps of hell danced in his brain. This guy could kill me like I'd kill a mosquito. No, not even with that much emotion. He'd kill me like he'd pull the wings off a fly "Death walked skeletal fingers down my spine. I didn't scare easily but at that I slid off Bo's back and ran away." Biting Christmas turns nasty when a vamp Santa turns up. It derails another honeymoon. Written with humor and heat. I'm glad it had a glossary for Nixie's slang. I received a complimentary copy from Amazon. That did not change my opinion for this review.

BITING HOLIDAY HONEYMOONS contains a pair of paranormal romance short stories set during the holidays. Mary Hughes combines elements of erotica and action adventure in her storytelling, along with healthy doses of off-beat humor. Her style is fast-paced and flowing, and the stories contained slang and many fun pop cultural references. For the sake of fairness, I have to disclose that vampires are far from my favorite supernatural critter, but I believe that I am capable of setting personal preferences aside to provide a fair review. This novella is being reviewed as part of my Christmas Stories blog event, but I did take the time to read both BITING HALLOWEEN and BITING CHRISTMAS so I'll comment on them separately. BITING HALLOWEEN: Elena and her vampire groom, Bo, begin the story with some crazy sexual escapades inside a moving car that made my inner auto accidents claims adjuster cringe. The sex scenes are hot but tongue-in-cheek and a bit over the top. Anyway, she's a cop; he's a master vampire. They're supposed to be on their honeymoon but a series of strange events converge, which results in the newlyweds hunting Dracula on Halloween. Life gets even more complicated fast when the hunters run into a whole bunch of costumed kids dressed up as old Drac. Hilarity ensues. Reaction: I found the characters to be likeable, the funny bits to be laugh-worthy and the whole story to be overall enjoyable. There were parts where point of view issues threw me out of the story but I recovered fast. BITING CHRISTMAS: Nixie and vampire Julian are on their honeymoon at Christmas time but Nixie's German mom can't stand to leave the poor couple alone. The initial phone conversation between the heroine and her mother is pretty darn funny (but I was left wondering why she didn't just hang up. I would have.) Love scenes are hot and explicit but the author doesn't take anything too seriously, including the sexy bits. The author's offbeat humor remains consistent with the arrival of a Santa-vampire and Mrs. Santa lookalike. Once again, the hero and heroine must suspend their sexcapades in order to save the day amidst many one-liners worthy of Buffy. I LOVED the mental image of Santa Vampire and the seven hundred red ball ornaments comedy device. Reaction: Another enjoyable short story, but I had trouble distinguishing Elena from Nixie and Bo from Julian when it came to characterization. Now, these stories do appear to be part of a short story series, so my issues may in part be due to not having read the rest of the series. However, I'd have liked it better if both brides weren't human and both grooms powerful master vampires because it felt like a cliché. The action scenes were exciting and I laughed at the jokes. This is a fun holiday tale for fans of paranormal romance and action adventure. An ARC was received.
