"Excellent tongue-in-cheek paranormal romance"
Ganymede provides vacation services that are a bit unique
as one would expect when he runs a firm. He escorts
customers on tours of the past. Currently, Ganymede and
his feline pal Sparkle take a twenty-fourth century based
tour group back to 1785 MacKenzie Castle in Scotland.
Vampire Darach MacKenzie is not a happy bloodsucker when
the futurists arrive at his clan's castle. He realizes
that the two guides are a bit more powerful than humans,
but he plans to rid his family estate of them and their
minions. Everything changes when he sees Ecstasy, Inc.
employee Blythe amidst the "guests" because somehow she
makes his blood boil. Believing he has found his soul
mate, Darach wants to snack on her neck, but she has to
prove to her employers that she can do more than just turn
on every man's lust even if his fangs look so temptingly
Is there any author who does humor, horror and romance in
one blending better than Nina Bangs does it? The key to
Ms. Bangs' clever facetious novels is the cast never does
what the reader expects; even a simple vampiric neck snack
becomes a hilarious exchange between two attracted
individuals separated by species and several centuries.
MASTER OF ECSTASY combines vampires, time travel and that
nutty Ganymede accompanied by as daffy Sparkle into an
amusing romance that will lead the audience to read in one
