A wickedly sexy and humorous vampire romp,
This review is from: Master of Ecstasy (Mass Market Paperback)
Nina Bangs has been coming on strong with her books and this is another in the long line of "good reads". It's a time travel, it's a vampire book like none other. Very refreshing tale!
Bythe was born in the year 2310, where nearly everything - including life - is indestructible. The people live on and on and on, so they grow bored and bored lead to extreme depression - except in Casper, Wyoming where Blythe was been "exiled" to do her job. A job that included reading her client's feelings and doing what she needs to make him happy - just sex it outside the limits. She crossed that limit in her previous assignment - hence the banishing to Casper.
In order to prove she is worthy to get out of Happyville, USA, she has taken on a new assignment - A working vacation (immediately superior tagging along to report on her). She and her boss book a vacation back in history - 1785 Scotland to be precise to Castle MacKenzie (HUM - Miss Bangs please note that is SMALL k not large K!!) through Grannymead tours. We learn Grannymead and his companion - and oversexed spirit Sparkle Stardust are there to make trouble. He commands to Sparkle appear in cat form to help with his plans. Grannymead has booked the tour into the castle thinking it's empty. Everyone soon learns there is one Darach MacKenzie, owner - for several centuries - of the castle. He wants the tour gone, so Grannymead plans to kill the vampire for control of the Castle.
Bythe is attracted to Darach, though she is not sure about liking a vampire. To make her confusion worse, her boss has assigned her - challenged - her to make Darach happy or else get fired - and no sex! How do you make a 700 year old vampire happy???
Toss in a deranged Buffy the Vampire fan from the present century who sees herself as Bully Jr. and who agrees with Grannymead the Vamp has to go, yoi have is one witty tale that will keep the readers guessing from page to page. Sure to please vampire fans and time travel fans looking for something a little different, and guaranteed to satisfy Nina Bang Fans!
