Night Bites by Nina Bangs

Night Bites (Mackenzie Vampires, #2)Night Bites by Nina Bangs

Cindy Harper has an ice-cream flavor for every emotion. Vanilla caramel fudge eases the stress of dealing with her weird and wacky guests at the Woo Woo Inn. But no sweet treat from her freezer is smooth, creamy, or tempting enough to cool down her dark fantasies about Thrain Davis.
Thrain is a man to be enjoyed on a strictly primitive level. Every woman who’s ever seen him smile wonders about the pleasure his mouth could give her and recognizes the secrets in his hard blue gaze. Too late Cindy realizes the danger of inviting an ancient vampire into her inn. The concept of fanged creatures of the night scares her witless. Besides, he forces her to examine her past when she’s just fine with her present. He does have an upside, though. Who needs ice cream when you have a hot and yummy immortal in your bed?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another great book by Nina Bangs. This books takes place after the first book. In the first book we met Thrain Davis who is a friend of the hero of the first book Darach Mackenzie. Thrain takes it upon himself to find Darach's long lost daughter, the daughter he doesn't know he has. Cindy Harper owns a little B&B which caters to people who believe in the supernatural. Cindy has lived for quite a long time but she doesn't want to become a research project to find out why.

Again, Sparkle and Ganymede are back. Sparkle's goal in life is to cause chaos by setting up people who are completely wrong for each other. These two supporting characters are terrific.

Master of Ecstasy by Nina Bangs

Master of Ecstasy (Mackenzie Vampires, #1)Master of Ecstasy by Nina Bangs

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Her trip in time to 1785 Scotland was supposed to be a vacation, so why did Blythe feel that her stay at the MacKenzie pile of stones had her imagination working overtime, making helpful suggestions about every bump in the night: demon, considers you yummy take-out; really ugly gargoyle, wants to sleep in your bed. 

So she wasn't at all surprised when the first hunk she met turned out to be Mr. Dark-Evil-and-Deadly himself, an honest-to-goodness vampire. His voice was a tempting way above 88.6 degrees, but when Darach whispered, "To waste a neck such as yours would be a terrible thing," she decided his pillow talk left a lot to be desired. 

Dangerous? You bet. To die for? Definately. Soul mate? Just wait and see

My thoughts:

This was a great start to the Mackenzie Vampire series. You are introduced to 2 hilarious supporting characters that play a part this series as well as the Castle of Dark Dreams series. Ganymede and Sparkle Stardust are cosmic trouble makers. A woman from the future meets a vampire when she takes a vacation to the past. This vacation is important for Blythe, it's a working vacation. She has to complete a job without becoming emotionally involved with the person she needs to make happy. Darach Mackenzie is the subject of her new job and a 500 year old vampire.

The main characters Blythe and Darach are a great! I like the background of the Mackenzie vampires.
