Biting Oz by Mary Hughes

Real vampires do musicals.

Gunter Marie “Junior” Stieg is stuck selling sausage for her folks in small-town Meiers Corners. Until one day she’s offered a way out-the chance to play pit orchestra for a musical headed for Broadway: Oz Wonderful Oz.

But someone is threatening the show’s young star. To save the production, Junior must join forces with the star’s dark, secretive¬†bodyguard, whose sapphire eyes and lyrical Welsh accent thrill her. And whose hard, muscular body sets fire to her passions.

Fierce as a warrior, enigmatic as a druid, Glynn Rhys-Jenkins has searched eight hundred years for a home. Junior’s get-out-of-Dodge attitude burns him, but everything else about her inflames him, from her petite body and sharp mind to what she can do with her hip-length braid.

Then a sensuous, insidious evil threatens not only the show, but the very foundations of Meiers Corners. To fight it, Junior and Glynn must face the truth about themselves-and the true meaning of love and home.

Warning: Cue the music, click your heels together, make a wish and get ready for one steamy vampire romance. Contains biting, multiple climaxes, embarrassing innuendos, ka-click/ka-ching violence, sausage wars
and-shudder-pistachio fluff.

My Review:

OMG. I had a very hard time putting this book down. You are TOTALLY not in Kansas anymore. ūüôā I grew up completely and totally obsessed with the Wizard of Oz so the fact that the play with in the book was based on that story was just icing on the cake. The dialogue in this book was witty, hilarious and¬†raunchy- right up my alley. First off the story is based in a suburb called Meiers Corner by Chicago, like me. Secondly the town is a German themed town, like me (most of the things in my town has Alpine in the title…).¬†Thirdly, the main characters are ¬†a German girl and a Welsh vampire, like me (well I am German and Welsh- a girl, NOT a vampire just to clear that up). It was a little eerie. LOL This book is not for some one that is on the conservative side, the language is very adult as is most of the book. This book is for a die-hard paranormal romance lover- no wish washy “romance talk” here. It’s¬†tongue¬†in cheek (and other places-pun intended) humor, the characters are awesome and are so well written that you feel like you could be best friends in a flash. Nixie, one of Junior’s friends, is a pregnant, punk rockin’ wife of a vampire that I could totally hang out with. ūüôā If you are looking for a fun, light fantastic paranormal romance, this book is the ticket. I am looking forward to reading other books by Mary¬†Hughes. She has a whole Oz series!
