Book Synopsis:

Striking the right note could shatter more than their hearts. 

Biting Love, Book 7

After an attack that slaughtered his family, vampire Dragan Zajicek walled off his heart and went on a sixteen-hundred-year rampage with the bad boys of history.

Now a rock star of the concert podium and master freelance spy, he’s taken the baton for a small orchestra near Chicago to investigate rumors of a monstrous, undefeatable vampire dubbed the Soul Stealer.

But it’s the lovely, unassuming Raquel “Rocky” Hrbek who mesmerizes him from the first touch of her luscious lips on her flute.

Rocky, a shy shadow scarred by middle school cruelty, is mystified as to why core-meltingly gorgeous Dragan would notice a mouse like her. As his stolen kisses draw her dangerously close to the edge of her carefully constructed comfort zone, he exposes her secret—she’s investigating the monster herself.

As their quest draws them closer together, the monster zeroes in on the woman Dragan’s rebellious heart tells him is his mate. Now they must find a way to destroy the indestructible before Rocky is utterly consumed. And Chicago is bathed in the blood of innocents.

Warning: Contains a master of seduction and symphonies, an awkward and innocent flutist, small-town humor, heart-stopping action, and an exodus to Iowa. Oh, and the cheese balls are ba-a-ack—and deadlier than ever.


Wow. This book is packed with edge of your seat action, sexy vampires, and excellent romance. This was my first time reading Mary Hughes work and I was greatly impressed. I'm a huge fan of paranormal romance and this one was a real winner. What I really liked about this book was Gravloth. I loved the unique idea of this vampire being truly unstoppable. An awesome read!


  1. Mary Hughes writes the best paranormal! I found her with Biting Nixie! Loved Nixie and have read Mary Hughes since. I look forward to this new one. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I haven't read any of Mary Hughes' books. I am a fan of paranormal, mostly vampires. I will have to check this one out.

  3. I have this book on my TBR because I won a free copy but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Thanks for the review, I'll definitely be checking it out sooner instead of later :)

  4. I have read about this series by Mary before but have yet to actually read any of her works. Now that I see there are seven books in this series maybe I should check her out, I haven't read any vampire stories lately.

  5. Love the WARNING! Not the usual disclaimer. Sounds like my kind of book.
