I like Ms. Murray's funny writing, but it didn't work for me in this book. As I've mentioned before, I have a hard time with "funny" PNR books. I don't know why because I don't have the same problem with other genres (CR, HR, UF, etc.), but that's how I'm wired.

The plot of this book is simple: Jack Donnelly is the security chief of Simon Ewans, one of the richest, most socially active and politically vocal men on the planet. Simon's daughter Rowan is a kindergarten teacher who, having grown up s

Ya'll know that I love a good vampire story. There is nothing like a sexy, dangerous vampire hero to make excited to read about, and this book definately delivers in every way!

Rowan Evans has a normal life. A teacher who spends most of her time grading papers and chasing kids, her life is pretty dull and uneventful at times. Liking her ordinary hum-drum life, she has avoided her father's security chief and friend Jack Donnelly for years. Between the Harley he drives and the bad-ass reputation,

Hannah Murray is rapidly becoming one of my favorite erotica authors. Her stories contain a good bit of humor mixed in with sizzling sex and "Tooth and Nailed" is no exception.

Rowan is so mad! Just because there's a psycho nutjob after her to try and get to her father, he's saddled her with his Chief of Security Jack! The one man who just seems to rub her the wrong way. At least that's what she always thought, until she actually experienced his 'rub'. Now she's more confused than ever!

Jack has h
3 1/2 stars for this erotic, funny (at times), minor suspense, vampire romance that started out and ended in Los Angeles, California, but the majority of the book took place in Slade, Ireland. The writing was good and I enjoyed the author's humor, but there was a point in the ending where the humor was inappropriate. When writing a gruesome scene and trying to put suspense in a plot, unrealistic crackpot comments while being tortured ruin the moment.

Rowan Evans was a Kindergarten teacher and th

This is one spicy paranormal tale. Jack and Rowan are very likeable. Both are very stuborn. Jack has always been attracted to Rowan but she always avoided him. After Jack kidnaps her the sparks start to fly. I loved Rowan. She was witty and very outspoken. The sex between those two was hot. Jack is one sexy vampire who can bite me anytime.

Fun read - the dialog reminded me of a modern version of the the Tracy and Hepburn movies - you've got to love a heroine who refers to the hero as 'Chitty Chitty Fang Fang'... The action definitely takes a backseat to the sex/relationship...
my first cheesy novel HAHAHA!
I feel dirty all over

I'm not going to give my take on the synopsis because plenty of others have already done that. I will however say "Tooth and Nailed" has become one of my favorite books. I love the author's sense of humor, it made for an interesting, entertaining and highly erotic read. Plus the chemistry between the two characters...

There are a few scenes that come across a little corny but nothing that makes you want to quit reading. And honestly I think the chemistry between Rowan & Jack more than make

I had a bland waiter ask me once, after I had finished his restaurant's equally bland food, "Did you like the food? It was okay, right?" I didn't burst his bubble, but confirmed for him that his food was okay. Just like his service.

Tooth and Nailed gets high marks for a great cover and a catchy title, but that's about it. The romance between Rowan and Jack just doesn't feel right to me - it's more about sex than anything else, and Rowan's character is just annoying as hell. I hate it when that

Good suspense story. Rowan's wealthy and politically influential father is a target of a bizarre religious cult, the Army of God. When Rowan also becomes a target, the father's security chief, Irishman Jack Donnelly, must protect the independent kindergarden teacher.

Oh, and Jack's a vampire ;-), unbeknownst to Rowan.

I liked the book and characters alot and give it four stars. More suspense plot and less sex would have made it even better.

This was really good,better than I thought it would be.I sort of stumbled upon this by chance when I was looking for another book by this author but I knew after the first 10 pages that this was my kinda book and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a good laugh as well as scorching hot inventive love scenes and lots of witty banter between a very likeable H&H.
At this time, the content of this book has nothing to do with the description. This is only one story about a vampire, not different stories.

That being said, I enjoyed it a lot. It was a bit different from the usual which is always a plus. I recommend this one.

I don't usually like vampire erotica, but this was alright. The heroine had way too many snappy comebacks for my taste. That chick had an answer for every remark – it was almost distracting.

Despite the terrible title this was actually a pretty good book. Characters were developed and although the story line was predictable it had a few twists that were unexpected.

Maybe 3.5 stars. I'm cleaning up my TBR pile and trying to move through half finished books.
