    Bangs delivers again!

    Woo woo - we are back to the Woo Woo Inn!! And about time. Nina Bangs has two series running, but I simply love when we head back to Ganymede's and Sparkle's stomping ground. Bangs has to be one of the best at utterly sexy, wacky vamps, and other were-creatures that tramp through the lobby of the Inn. She has a sly humour that catches you from the start, and has you laughing out loud. The rare person occasionally doesn't get her. Well, that is your right. Your loss. For those of us who adore her, no one can touch her style. She is likely the best at this, the most underrated author out there. No matter how down I am when I pick up a Bangs' book, it's like a dose of happy juice! Few writers can do that every time. This time she gives us a heroine who is a Harpy. (I still loved the werekitty though!). Put aside the blue and purple creatures you saw in 'Jason and the Argonauts' in the 1960s. This Harpy, Daria, doesn't fit that mode, atall! Seems her mommy dearest was playing footsie with Apollo, so instead of a Harpy Daddy, she got a sun god for a Pop. It really messed up her genes! She tries very hard to be a big bad Harpy, but just doesn't quite make it, instead she flits into the radar of one Declain Mackenzie, vampire. She is up to no good at the Woo Woo Inn, and her plans could see Declan soaking his feet in the hot water of Hades, but Declan cannot resist the intrigue delectable Daria poses. They are facing an Armageddon that could see the Woo Woo Inn short of guests if they cannot stop it. Of course, never fear, Sparkle and Ganymede are not about to let things progress smoothly when there is mischief to stir. I sincerely hope this is not the last stay at the Woo Woo Inn, because Ganymede, Sparkle and I would be very displeased! Just the thing to chase away the mid-winter blues.

    an amusing lighthearted paranormal romantic suspense

    Daria is undergoing a certification test to determine if she is capable of performing as a harpy. To pass she must bring a soul to Hades of Tartarus if she fails the punishment is the worst that one could imagine for instance one year of humiliating public wearing of a zombie¿s castoffs. To find a worthy victim to take to her superior Tartarus, she obtains the night manager position at the Woo Woo Inn.--------- Declan realizes that something deadly has stalked and killed two of his peers. He fears for the lives of the surviving vampiric council members as he thinks they are the intended victims of the culprit. He thinks a Harpy working the Woo Woo Inn desk is hilarious, but also finds he is attracted to Daria, a taboo for a vampire. Daria realizes Declan is her ticket to the top of Hades, but cannot bring herself to take his soul as she is attracted to the vampire, a taboo for a Hades employee IAW the Harpy Handbook. As their attraction turns to love, they realize a confrontation with a serial killer of the supernatural species awaits them.--------- ONE BITE STAND is an amusing lighthearted paranormal romantic suspense as the harpy and the vampire prove strange NIGHT BITES attractions make for a fine romantic fantasy. The suspense grips the readers, but is not needed and distracts from the fun relationship between the delightful Ds make this an entertainingly ¿Wicked¿ zany tale with quite a bang of a main plot.-------------- Harriet Klausner

    I expected more from Nina Bangs...

    I found it very hard to connect with the characters in this book. I had to force myself to finish it. I have loved previous books by Nina Bangs and would recommend any of her books before this one, but this book was a big disappointment.

    Easily a 5-Star Read!

    Always the first in line for a Nina Bangs novel! LOVED the suspenseful plot in 'One Bite Stand.' The kind of tense feeling you have in your stomach watching a horror movie and thinking 'don't go in the house!' Nina lets the reader see enough ahead that we're emotionally engaged in all the best intentions but wrong decisions Declan and Daria make to get what they want without getting involved. The result is a rollercoater of plot twists, sexual tension and zany secondary characters- all wrapped up in Nina's unique, bestselling humor. LOVED IT!

    A reviewer

    i really enjoyed the story of the fledgling harpy trying to get a good grade on her test and that Mede hired her to give a challenge for Sparkle. Love the interaction with all the characters and the flopping of what some people see as beautiful and ugly. Really good book and can't wait to see what other vampire characters she will write about. glad i pre-ordered it.
