Synnove Byornsson is a woman on a mission. She’s a doctor who wants people to focus on her brain, not her looks, but she’s afraid she might have to use both in order to get Ric Holiday’s attention. Synnove’s cousin, Twyla, insists that Ric is the only ad man up for the job of saving their town of Meiers Corners. There’s just two problems: (1) Ric won’t help and (2) Synnove has some serious competition from a woman who wants to destroy everything Meiers Corners represents.

Got to 31% and I can't go on. I'm just not feeling this and it's taking forever for the story to go anywhere.

Beauty Bites (Biting Love Series) by Mary Hughes Is a very good read and an excellent addition to this series. This another book about Meiers Corners and it's human and vampire residents. This book tells
Synnove and Ric's story. The continuing battle over Meiers Corners brings the two together and an instant attraction turns into fated mates. Many favorite characters return as major players in this book. We see Bo, Elena, Twyla and Nikos. Book is full of drama, suspense, humor, uncovered secret

Welcome back to Meiers Corners, the vampires that call it home and the woman who love them, and the vampires that want to take it over. Nothing much has changed except that we are adding a few new players to the mix. And a baby, too.

In an attempt to save Meiers Corners from the clutches of Nosferatu, Twyla sends her cousin Synnove to try to persuade Ric Holiday, Ad-Man extraordinaire, to take on

There are things I loved about this book and things I'd hated.

The writing is clean and succinct and well edited. It reads smoothly, in fact is very fun at times. I had an huge problem with the way point of view was handled. We are introduced to the main character in first person. This, usually, means that we are getting the story from her mind exclusively, or in some cases from alternating 1st person perspectives. Not so here. The author adds in 3rd person scenes from the point of view of the h

Ok-what do I love more in a story than a hot love scene? Quirky, intelligent characters who (despite their outward perfection) have it in them to be humble. Characters (human or vampires, demons, weres, shifters, etc.) who make it his/her business to help others--whether by trade or on personal time--are ones I can personally identify with. This is why I love Hughes' (or is it Hughes's?) stories so damn much. Her characters have a sense of humor about themselves and are always stronger than they ...more
Synnove is on a mission, to get hot ad man Ric Holiday to create an ad campaign for her town. Synnove doesn't really have experience in pitching an idea, after all she is a doctor on a self appointed sabbatical. but that doesn't stop her on her quest.

Ric is intrigued by Synnove, she blurts out random facts , is sex on a stick, and has a way of twisting her words so that she never tells a lie. As a vampire, he should be able to manipulate her mind, but Ric finds there is something incredibly spec

This was my first book to read by Mary Hughes and I loved it. It engaged me from the first paragraph and kept me until the last. Synnove tells this story in first person so the reader really gets a sense of her quirky yet honest character. Her journey from disillusioned doctor to actualized mate to a vampire is full of twists and adventures. Her reluctant v-man mate, Ric, shows depth in his vision of who Synnove is on the inside and honor as he fights to protect her and his human family. This bo ...more

Another fun, hot, sexy entry in the Meiers Corners vampire series. Although this one doesn't actually take place in the quaint little town, the conflict is all about protecting Meiers Corners from those who want to change its image and make it the Midwest's Sin City. Image is everything to both main characters since Ric is an advertising man and Synnove is still trapped in her childhood image of herself. They're both characters you want to root for, but Aiden, Ric's dark and dangerous right-hand ...more

Not as slapstick funny but still good.
