Meiers Corners needs top-notch advertising to turn it from a quaint little town into a money-making tourist destination before it goes bankrupt. They pick Minneapolis advertising guru Ric Holiday, who refuses them outright. What they don’t know is that Meiers Corners is too close to Chicago and the vampire who turned him as a boy.

A vampire is what they need. Ric’s good at his job and will understand the needs of their hidden vampire community, so to catch Ric’s interest; they send beautiful Dr. Synnove Byornsson to crash his cocktail party. Dressed in a killer outfit, Synnove’s determined to win Ric over, but things don’t go as planned. She ends up in competition with a deadly female vampire who wants to turn Meiers Corners into a mid-west version of Las Vegas.

Beauty Bites is the newest release in the Biting Love series by Mary Hughes. There’s some time between books but because of the recurring characters the books should be read in order.

I like this book but then all the releases in this series are fun, quirky and entertaining and Beauty Bites isn’t any different. The story is fast paced, it has great characters with good personality development, the details are vivid and there are plenty of twists and turns to hold your interest. I mean there’s just something so appealing about the people from this little town that every time a new book comes out I have to read it. This time, it’s Ric and Synnove and their bantering dialogue and sizzling sexual tension I can’t get enough of. 

But that’s not all. Not only do we have a chance to get reacquainted with some of the couples we’ve met before, but the author has created a couple of intriguing new individuals as the villains. These two add lots of color, trouble and danger and I hope you find them as interesting as I did. I don’t know what comes next in this well written series but I can’t wait to find out.
