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.
