"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 ...so you can read
NIGHT BITES first, but there are a lot of spoilers...in 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
