Biting Love, Book 5Gunter Marie “Junior” Stieg is stuck selling sausage for her folks in small-town Meiers Corners. Until one day she’s offered a way out—the chance to play pit orchestra for a musical headed for Broadway: Oz, Wonderful Oz.
But someone is threatening the show’s young star. To save the production, Junior must join forces with the star’s dark, secretive bodyguard, whose sapphire eyes and lyrical Welsh accent thrill her. And whose hard, muscular body sets fire to her passions.
Fierce as a warrior, enigmatic as a druid, Glynn Rhys-Jenkins has searched eight hundred years for a home. Junior’s get-out-of-Dodge attitude burns him, but everything else about her inflames him, from her petite body and sharp mind to what she can do with her hip-length braid.
Then a sensuous, insidious evil threatens not only the show, but the very foundations of Meiers Corners. To fight it, Junior and Glynn must face the truth about themselves—and the true meaning of love and home.
Cue the music, click your heels together, make a wish and get ready for one steamy vampire romance. Contains biting, multiple climaxes, embarrassing innuendos, ka-click/ka-ching violence, sausage wars and—shudder—pistachio fluff.

This really answered my problem, thanks!
Loving the covers for the series. Loved the first and second books. Thanks for the giveaway.
I think all kinds of wonderful stories can be told that revolve around druids, or at least around all the myths out there. I do hope you get around to finishing that story you already started 🙂

Hey Michelle! I like the premise of the story, a college professor and a young woman who is a professional model who has a near death experience and the druid book that joins them together…thanks for your encouragement!
Great contest! Thanks!
Hi Evelyn! Thanks!
I love reading about vampires. I would love to read this book. Please enter me in contest. Tore923@aol.com
Hi Tore! Thanks for your nice words. The stories are light but the heroes are definitely all vampire. Enjoy!
I have not read a Mary Hughes title before, but I will definitely check her out now 🙂
Thanks Ali! Freebies are all listed on my blog for a taste, although to get the full romantic buildup I recommend the novels 🙂 http://maryhughesbooks.blogspot.com/p/free-stories.html
Love the cover and this is a new author for me.

Thanks! The awesome Kaxana is the cover artist. I love it too. It's striking, with just the hint of a guitar flowing into the composition, and colors that complement the rest of the series' covers.
I love series books so I need to start reading these. Thanks for the giveaway!
Thanks for your kind comment! Bite My Fire is first with cop Elena and master vampire/apartment manager/suspect Bo. Time does pass and plot lines do develop across books and recurring characters change, but I wrote the books so that they can be read in any order, or as stand-alones. Feel free to dive in anywhere!
Sounds like a great new series for me to start!
Thanks LM! There's another freebie from earlier in the series if you're interested. It's really short, and features Nixie and Julian on their honeymoon.
Congrats on the new release. This book sounds fantastic. Can't wait to read it. Will this be the last in the series?
Hey Joanne! Thanks for your congratulations and kind words. I'm glad you asked about the series–this isn't the last book. That won't be for a while, I'm afraid.
Next up is Beauty Bites, featuring Twyla's almost-a-doctor cousin who looks like a Scandanavian model but only wants to be taken seriously. I've paired her steak to the sizzle of ad man Ric Holiday, who's on the run from Nosferatu. Their story takes place in and near Minneapolis and features a stunning and horrifying revelation about vampire aging. After that comes Rocky's story (which I started in 2009, if you can believe it!). And then I have a few characters who will need stories of their own and a couple villains who need to be dealt with, so I'm anticipating a few more books after that 🙂
Very interesting post! I love stories about druids and have been reading a series about them – they were a very interesting people and what happened to them with the Romans was tragic. Thanks for the giveaway

Hey Maria! Truly, there's a lot about the druids and Celts and their history that we don't get in school, especially from the pre-Roman times when their tribes covered western Europe. Really quite a heroic people in many ways. Besides the Druid Prince and his triple sacrifice, there's a great book about how the Irish helped preserve western civilization during the dark ages.
This sounds like a great read! I'm always looking for something new to read 🙂

Ericka, hi! Thanks! If you like vampires, alpha males, action, humor, and explosive adult romance… 🙂 there's a taste (the first chapter) of Biting Oz is posted on my website http://www.maryhughesbooks.com/Biting_Oz_Excerpt.htm
And the prequel short story Oz Bites is *free* on Amazon
A new author for me. But I do love a little magic and romance. I like how you take bits of people you know and make new characters. Glynn sounds great, a lot packed into one man!
Thanks for the generous giveaway!

Hi Lexi! Thank you for your kind words. My previous hero was golden, graceful, a bit of a bad boy and larger than life. Glynn is very different, more my idea of a mature, responsible man, so I wasn't sure how readers would react. I'm so glad you think he sounds great!
Biting Oz sounds great, I like the cover. Thx for giveaway.

Hey Lona! Cover artist Kaxana really caught the drama! “Real vampires do musicals” hopefully gives the sense of fun. The warning then lets readers know it's adult 🙂 Thanks for your nice comment!
