Book Description

2 July 2013 Biting Love
Real vampires do musicals. Biting Love, Book 5 Gunter 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. Warning: 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.

More About 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. Not so grateful for bird parts. What, do they think she's made of fingers?

Mary Hughes books are funny - they are silly, light hearted fun. Gunter Marie "Junior" Stieg works in the family sausage shop, and plays part time in the Meiers Corners orchestra. What more do you need to know? Go buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reminds me of why I love Biting Nixie 6 Sep 2012
By Vanessa C - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mary Hughes has stepped up her game with Biting Oz. All of the crazy humor that I liked so well in Biting Nixie is in this book. Of course it helps that Julian and Nixie play a supporting role in this book. Junior, an only child in a family run sausage store, has dreams of performing in New York in the pit orchestra of a soon to be remake of the Wizard of Oz on Broadway. If the play ever gets any patrons to see it. The star of the show is the ward of a very rich and powerful business man. Accompanying her is a very large, very protective, and very handsome man, Glynn. The attraction is instantaneous. But Junior has no designs on becoming attached to this man, she's going to leave Meiers Corners and make it on her own. Unlike her mother she's not giving up her dreams to be tied to a man and a family business that occupies all of her time. That's why this show must make it. Hughes gives her characters funny, delightful banter both internally and with each other. Add in a bunch of corny musician one liner jokes and you have a light crazy funny read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read 3 Sep 2012
By LAS Reviewer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
There is an old saying in show business - the show must go on. Nowhere is that more true that when the folks in Meiers Corners decide to put on a stage play of the Wizard of Oz, and are beset with low audience turnout, repeated attempts to abduct the girl playing Dorothy, and sabotage of many sorts. Gunter Marie `Junior' Steig believes this is her only chance to escape the boring life at home - if the show is a success, the next stop is New York City and a chance for more than the sausage shop. What Junior doesn't know is that many of the residents of her little town are vampires...old, strong and powerful, and one of them wants Junior for his own. But Glynn Rhys-Jenkins knows about Junior's dreams, and he places a high value on home, having lost his long ago. When the evil Chicago vampires up the stakes, Junior and Glynn and the rest of Meiers Corner residents fight back with everything they have. Can Junior and Glynn survive the sausage wars, the cheese rebellion and the vampire attacks to save the show? Will they be able to fight the attraction growing between them? Or will Junior learn, like Dorothy, that `there's no place like home'?

Biting Oz is Mary Hughes' latest Biting Love book, and one of the hottest so far. Her tiny town of Meiers Corners is a unique society, where ancient vampires and eccentric humans coexist in peace unless the evil Chicago vampires attack. The characters are all well-defined, and the conflicts are edge of your seat, fast paced and mostly unexpected when they come. I have become addicted to the Meiers Corners gang and all that they encompass, from Nixie and Elena to Julian, Glynn and even the mysterious Mr. Elias, seldom seen but all knowing.

Gunter Marie `Junior' Steig is determined to make her move to the big city. She dreams of freedom and a life of her own, away from the sausage shop her family runs. She's falling for Glynn, but feels if she gets close, she will lose her one shot at escape. I enjoyed watching as she falls under Glynn's protection, and his affection, and slowly comes to realize that home is where the heart is, be it New York, Meiers Corners or even the cornfields of Iowa. She's smart, talented and determined, and I loved watching as she discovered she could have her dreams and Glynn too.

Glynn is a centuries old vampire, and in all those years he has never found his one soul mate...until he meets Junior. He's strong, sexy and sensitive to her desires, but finds it harder and harder to keep from claiming her as his and keeping her by his side. I like Glynn's sense of loyalty and his generosity in trying to keep Junior safe and yet give her what she dreams of most: her freedom to be who she is.

There are two recurring threads here-the growing relationship between Junior and Glynn, and the repeated sabotage by the Chicago vampires and their minions. I enjoyed this for the unique humor Ms. Hughes brings to all of her Biting Love books, and of course the hot and steamy passion that erupts from the page every time Junior and Glynn come together. I also enjoyed watching as the town united against the `outsiders' and saved not only the show, but the town as well. I recommend this for those who love a side of humor with their main course of romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Hot! 28 Aug 2012

Wow! That's the only thing I can think to say about this book! Can I order 1 Glynn, to go? That would be great! I was really into this book. I started it this afternoon, and was finished by 8pm. I just couldn't stop reading. It was definitely one of those "tune everyone out" books, and those are my favorite!

I liked how the book wasn't one where it was girl meets boy, girl falls for boy, happily ever after. Junior is very insecure about relationships, and she wants out of her small town. Her relationship with her parents, especially her mom, is very volatile, and she is afraid of falling in love and forgetting about her dreams. However, with a guy like Glynn, staying away was not easy! He was not going away, and she was very attracted to him.

Junior is one hilarious girl! She's not very good at jokes, but she sure tries. She is a caring daughter, and a great friend. She wants to get her big break to New York so that she can get out of this small town atmosphere. Meeting Glynn was not in her plans at all, and she is very resistant to having a relationship.

This book does have adult situations, and the rest of the series is going on my to be read list! I absolutely would recommend this book if you like paranormal books!

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME Series! 17 Aug 2012
By Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Well, this is my favorite of the Biting Series by Mary Hughes. Maybe because I grew up with the Wizard of Oz and absolutely love the original movie or maybe is was Junior and Glynn. I'm not really sure, but, this book was fabulous!

The "staples" of Meiers Corners are back with a few new faces and a lot more hysterics. We meet the next adversary from the Coterie to try to take over Meiers Corners - Camille, the "Cheese Dudes", and Mishela. Elias (the "Ancient One") is also back giving orders and the wonderful residents of Meiers Corners have all gone bat-shit crazy! Well, thanks to Camille, that is, and the new night club in town "Fangs To You" and "GObubbles".

I laughed throughout this book. From Toto lifting his leg on everyone and everything, to the cheese-ball fight between the Cheese Dudes and the Stieg's. Camille makes life interesting in the way she is trying to shut down the opening of "Oz, Wonderful Oz" and the CIC is up to it's old tricks in trying to bankrupt the little town. All this to get control of the Blood Center. You would think they would give up by now. But, not our wonderful vampires. The Alliance is getting stronger and stronger with the addition of new vampires. The humans are all banding together in an attempt to stop the take-over and Dolly Barton has a surprise for us. And, the secret? Well I guess we will have to wait to find out what it really is since no one seems to want to tell us.
But, with all that said, Biting Oz covers a lot more than just the crazies in the Corners or the fight between the Alliance and the Coterie. Junior and Glynn are the shining stars in this book and their message to us is one that we all need to remember. Love and Family go hand-in-hand, having a house doesn't necessarily mean that you have a home, and, of course, "there's no place like home". Yes, all cliches but that's what this book is all about. Love, family and home. Trusting yourself to know that you can walk away to make someone elses dreams come true ... loving someone enough to let them go to find their dreams. Then, finding a way to make it work with you in their life.

Mary Hughes writes in a style that is enjoyable and fun. She brings together a cast of characters that have you laughing and just waiting to see what is going to happen next. How she comes up with some of the people and the things that they say and do is amazing. What a wonderful imagination she has. Well, I hope it's her imagination and not something from her real life. If it is, I would love to be her. The characters that she writes are totally off-the-wall. And the sex ... can it really be THAT BIG? Can they really have that much stamina?

I hope you enjoy "Biting Oz". I totally did and am really looking forward to see who is next in the long line of Meiers Corners characters to be bitten.

Love the plot, the humor, the puns, and the steam! Growing up in a town very much like Meiers Corners (but sadly without the studly vamps) I love how Hughes captures the character perfectly.
