"Welcome to the Woo Woo Inn, if the name won't make you laugh, the story will!!"

Thrain has tracked down Cindy Harper, the daughter of Darach. His wish is to tell Cindy of her heritage and reunite father with daughter and go on with his life. Telling Cindy he is over 700 years old himself (rather than a vampire) Thrain finds himself drawn to her, which wasn't part of the plan.

Cindy is proud of her hotel that caters to the people who want to be more than just human. Being over 700 years old herself, she doesn't believe in the paranormal (she thinks she is a genetic fluke). Used to the unusual, why would she believe her life is going to change when two cosmic troublemakers and the sexiest man she has ever seen check into her hotel?

When the humans start to get scared by the supernatural, Thrain helps her. When a real werewolf and werecat get into a fight on her front lawn its only natural that Thrain help her work things out to slowly introduce Cindy to a world of supernatural....a world that contains Cindy's greatest fear.

NIGHT BITES continues the story from THE MASTER OF EXTASY two hundred and something years later you can read NIGHT BITES first, but there are a lot of my opinion anyway. While I think NIGHT BITES moves at a faster pace than MASTER and I enjoyed the story more overall; I can't give the story 5 stars because I wasn't as interested in our leading couple as I was the secondary characters!

I'm greatly enjoying the series that Nina Bangs has started but I really get the impression that Sparkle and Ganymede are more prominent characters than the average secondary characters and for me there is a very fine line between rooting for the hero/heroine and rooting for secondary characters. Sparkle Stardust and Ganymede are a hoot and I love Ganymede in the role of a cat but I really feel I should want to read the story to see what is going on between Thrain and Cindy. Instead, I find myself more interested in reading the story to find out what havoc our cosmic troublemakers are contemplating next.

Something else, according to the cover, Cindy seems to be really into ice cream, so I really thought there would be more inclusion of her eating the treat, however, it seems Ganymede is addicted to the stuff. I just thought it odd how ice cream was played up on the cover, but not have it as something Cindy herself fell back on. Regardless, NIGHT BITES has me laughing my head off. I'm hooked on the series, so I am really looking forward to the next book, but I still wish I was more into Cindy and Thrains' part of the story.

Cindy Harper had an ice-cream flavor for every emotion. Vanilla caramel fudge eased the stress of dealing with her weird and wacky guests at the Woo Woo Inn. But no sweet treat from her freezer was smooth, creamy, or tempting enough to cool down her sensual fantasies about uber alpha male Thrain Davis.

This was a man to be enjoyed on a strictly primitive level. Every woman who ever saw him smile would wonder about the pleasure his mouth could give her and recognize the secrets in his hard blue gaze. Too late she realized the danger of inviting an ancient vampire into her inn. The concept of fanged creatures of the night scared her witless. Besides, he forced her to examine her past when she was just fine with her present. He did have an up side, though. Who needed ice cream when you had a hot and yummy dark immortal in your bed?
