I am not sure if it was a good idea to begin this series at book 8. I say this because even though the book can be read in isolation, there are some areas which I believe would have had more clarity if I started from the beginning. With that said I was still able to make some sense of how the vampire population of Meier’s Corner functioned.

Assassins Bite tells the story of Sunny Ruffles (pronounced Sun-Hee) and Aiden Blackthorne. Sunny is a pol

I had a blast reading this book! Sunny is competent for a Ruffles, Aiden is remarkable for a loner and Mrs. Ruffles should never be allied into a kitchen.

**This review is for a DNF**

I'm going to be honest. I don't know if I disliked this book because I've tried to pick up Book 8 in a series or if it's just that the book is bad. But 8 books in a series? Somebody - a lot of somebodies - must be reading and loving these books. It just wasn't me.

Sunny, or Sun-Hee, seemed like she was a bit of an idiot. On her first night on the street as a cop, she's stomping around while trying to SNEAK up on a mug

Welcome back to Meiers Corners. Life is so simple here filled with crazy characters, love, laughter and vampires. Yea, they are supposed to be a secret but more and more residents are immune to that vampire voice that will make them forget about what they saw or heard. The latest one to stand her ground is Sunny and, of all the vampires in all the world, she has to be immune to The Assassin.

When his friend mysteriously disappears, Aiden will need everything he is, everything he ever was and everything he might have been to defeat his evil master and claim the love he never dared hope to have in this exciting paranormal romance.

A fast pace and smooth plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of suspense, excitement, humor and passion. Mary Hughes brings the story to life with well written scenes and details and strong captivating characters. Well orchestrated suspense adds exciteme

I found the beginning to drag with moments where I wanted to skip ahead. I stuck with the story and in the end my patience was repaid. Sunny and Aiden are fascinating characters and I enjoyed learning of the fascinating world of vampires and humans learning to live together. I recommend Assassin’s Bite with the warning the beginning does have a bit of drag to it, but when it speeds up it is well worth the read. Meeting sexy Aiden made up for the slow start and was the main draw of Assassins Bite ...more
I give it a 4.5

Another winner. I absolutely love this series. The hero and heroine are spunky, fun, sexy and brave. Getting to revisit previous characters keeps the story flowing.
