A great romp with the were-creatures and vamps! I really liked the light-hearted-ness [is that a word?] of this book, and I enjoyed the characters.
I disagree with the reviewers who say her stories are unbelievable - come on! They're vampires and were-creatures for cryin' out loud! Suspend your disbelief enough to go along for the ride. You won't be sorry!
I like that despite the dark looking cover there is humor in the story. I enjoyed this book and the familiar characters that reappeared.
Nina Bangs always has colorful, interesting characters. I guess this group of them is getting a little "old" to me. I still enjoyed the book, but I really got tired of Sparkle's ongoing desire to play sexual matchmaker. It is almost as though the ongoing characters don't grow or change from the beginning to the end of the book (or from book to book for that matter). Still, it is a fun romp of a naughty nature, I just didn't find it as much of a page turner as Master of Ecstasy.
This was the best book that I have read by Bangs. It was sexy and very suspenseful. Also full of vampires, werecats, and werewolves! I loved it.
Very good. Humor and the fantasy/sci-fi to make the romance just a little different than the "norm". Very enjoyable read.
This was a very enjoyable book, it had comedy, romance, suspense and it kept your attention so that you wanted to know what was happening. This was my first book by Nina Bangs and I really enjoyed her writing and will read more of her books
Book was Ok. I found the cosmic troublemakers more annoying,than funny
Combination of all kinds of paranoramal creatures and a romance. Fun
Cute, funny, light vampire romance.
ANOTHER GREAT BOOK BY NINA BANGS. THE MACKENZIE VAMPIRE CLAN AGAINST WEREWOLFES, WERECATS,AND OF COURSE GANYMEDE AND SPARKLE STARDUST.
Nina Bangs paranormal series is fun and sexy. She's a witty author and all her stories will give you a chuckle. This is Reinn Mackenzie's story and his heroine is a werecat who turns into a saber-toothed tiger. Great story! Ganymede and Sparkle Stardust are back for more trouble as well.
a bit far fetched at times even for a vampire novel
Another Nina Bangs bit of froth, light airy and fun.
He'd lived a thousand years for this? Reinn Mackenzie was one ticked-off vampire. Werewolves-furry pains in the butt. Werecats-sneaky whisker-twitching manipulators. Reinn hated them all. But most of all, he hated his job. Guardian of the Blood. What a crock. The Mackenzie council, in its infinite stupidity, had ordered him to protect the purity of the clan's bloodline. What purity? They were all just a bunch of bloodsuckers, for crying out loud. Besides, how could he destroy a clan member for mating with someone not on the council's approved list when the very sight of a certain little werecat revved his engine? Kisa Evans made it impossible for him to think about anything but the dangreous fantasy of freeing his own inner beast. No matter how he fought the desire to feel the soft heat of her throat beneath his lips, the craving only grew. Kisa might be the enemy, but he longed to show her the sweet ecstasy to be found in...The Taste of Darkness.
Interesting. This is the first book I read by this author, I didn't like it as well as other vampire books, but I would read something else by this author.
I really enjoyed this one alot
SUPER GOOD VAMPIRE ROMANCE.....
reinn hates being the guardian of the blood so everyone wants to kill him so he trusts no one then kisa comes along he wants her and then the trouble starts
A paranormal romance with some "dark" humor. Vamp meets Werecat and the adventure begins.
Just an 'ok' book. I'm thinking that I'm not really fond of this author as the first book (The Pleasure Master) I tried to read of her's, I couldn't get through it. I have a couple more of hers & will read them before buying/swapping any more of this author's.
Reinn Mackenzie was one ticked off vampire. Werewolves-furry pains in the butt. Werecats= sneaky whisker-twitching manipulators. Reinn hated them all. But most of all, he hated his job. Guardian of the Blood. What a crock!
Excellent blend of fantasy and love.
Great book. Can't wait to read more of her books!
Love Nina Bangs...great characters and lots of imagination!
As "Protector of the Blood,"^B it was Reinn Mackenzie's job to keep the Mackenzie bloodlines pure. Which meant any Mackenzie who mated with anyone other than another vampire was toast. So when Alan Mackenzie decides to marry werecat Julie Evans, Reinn travels to the Woo Woo Inn in Pine Barrens, New Jersey, to give Alan a choice: marriage or life. Reinn's duties as the official Mackenzie clan exterminator become a bit more complicated, though, after he meets Julie's sister, Kisa, and realizes he, too, is falling for a werecat. Bangs continues her wildly imaginative Mackenzie vampire series with another deliciously dark tale that is perfect for readers who like their paranormal romances sizzling, sexy, and wickedly funny.
