Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 27, 2009
Summary: At last, the perfect lover. Now what? Stake him, shoot him--or screw him?
Elena O'Rourke lusts for two things--her detective's shield and a good lay. Sass-Cgal's "Bad Girl Sex Tips" will win her the man. But keeping the shield hinges on solving a murder.
Warrior-gorgeous Bo Strongwell stands in her way.
Powerful as a Viking warship, Bo would be Elena's one-stop solution to celibacy--except for his apartment building full of mysteries. Plus, his kisses...and nibbles...and full body tongue-swipes...keep distracting her from the case. As if a caped clown named Dracula, a hooker with a heart of gold (and boobs of steel), and Elena's own clueless partner aren't distraction enough.
Bo Strongwell is a master vampire who needs a cop snooping around like he needs a garlic enema. Fighting rogues keeps him busy enough without Elena trying to pin the murder on one of his kind...even if she does taste like heaven.
Two fighters for justice. One incredible attraction. A terrible secret. Drunken women dancing on the bar... It all rides on Elena solving the Case of the Punctured Prick.
Warning: Jammed with hot explicit sex, graphic fanged violence, and acid cop humor. May contain donuts.
Thoughts: A couple years ago I read The Bite of Silence which I would find out is actually the third book in the series. I'm finally getting around to starting at the beginning of the series. Bite My Fire being the first and it turned out to be an excellent read. Bo & Elena try to resist their attraction to each other, but they burn too hot to stay away. Exciting paranormal elements... Viking vampire anyone? Plus a mystery to solve. Mary Hughes has created a set of characters that charming, sexy and funny. A great combination, at least in my eyes. I'm looking forward reading the rest of the series.
Score: 4 Stars
