"Woo woo - we are back to the Woo Woo Inn!!"
Woo woo - we are back to the Woo Woo Inn!! And about
time. Nina Bangs has two series running, but I simply love
when we head back to Ganymede's and Sparkle's stomping
ground. Bangs has to be one of the best at utterly sexy,
wacky vamps, and other were-creatures that tramp through
the lobby of the Inn. She has a sly humour that catches
you from the start, and has you laughing out loud. The
rare person occasionally doesn't get her. Well, that is
your right. Your loss. For those of us who adore her, no
one can touch her style. She is likely the best at this,
the most underrated author out there. No matter how down I
am when I pick up a Bangs' book, it's like a dose of happy
juice! Few writers can do that every time.
This time she gives us a heroine who is a Harpy. (I still
loved the werekitty though!). Put aside the blue and
purple creatures you saw in "Jason and the Argonauts" in
the 1960s. This Harpy, Daria, doesn't fit that mold,
atall! Seems her mommy dearest was playing footsie with
Apollo, so instead of a Harpy Daddy, she got a sun god for
a Pop. It really messed up her genes! She tries very hard
to be a big bad Harpy, but just doesn't quite make it,
instead she flits into the radar of one Declain Mackenzie,
vampire. She is up to no good at the Woo Woo Inn, and her
plans could see Declan soaking his feet in the hot water of
Hades, but Declan cannot resist the intrigue delectable
They are facing an Armageddon that could see the Woo Woo
Inn short of guests if they cannot stop it. Of course,
never fear, Sparkle and Ganymede are not about to let
things progress smoothly when there is mischief to stir.
I sincerely hope this is not the last stay at the Woo Woo
Inn, because Ganymede, Sparkle and I would be very
Just the thing to chase away the mid-winter blues.

**2008 PEARL NOMINEE - BEST VAMPIRE ROMANCE**
He’s a big, bad vampire looking for a one-bite stand.
She’s a big, bad harpy looking for her ticket to the underworld.
Harpies don’t get callbacks. That’s why Daria’s job as night manager of the Woo Woo Inn is the opportunity of several lifetimes. Where better to prove that in the snatch-and-dispatch business she has CEO potential? So what if she doesn’t really fit the corporate image. So what if she has to nurture her inner bitch to compete. And triple so what if she’d rather take Declan Mackenzie to bed than on a one-way, all-expense-paid trip to Tartarus. His sexy blue eyes and hard male body lure her into deep and dangerous erotic waters. With a monster eating guests for its midnight snack, cosmic troublemakers cooking up chaos, and Declan making serious moves on her, this looks like a lot more than a…
