KISSING WITH FANGS begins when the bar that Claudia
Fletcher worked in burns to the ground, she is out of a job
and sadly away from the hottest man she has ever met. Her
boss was Anthony Cross, someone she had secretly lusted
after all these years. He has a few secrets that he has
never told her. One ... he feels the same about her and two,
this is the really hard one to tell her ... he's a vampire.
Anthony had really had his bar "Boston Uncommon" as a
meeting place for paranormals, someplace safe. He plans to
rebuild and rehire everyone back again, but when he finds
that Claudia is a functional alcoholic. He decides to set
up a different kind of place, but still a meeting place for
his kind and others. For years he has not acted on his
attraction out of fear of his ex-girlfriend doing something
to Claudia. Now nothing will stand in his way ... if he can
keep Ruxandra in line and Claudia doesn't run away
screaming when she finds out that she has been dealing with
vampires, shifters, wizards and other beings since she
started working at the bar.
It's bad enough to have the ex-girlfriend stalking him and
Mother Nature, who isn't happy with the meeting place idea,
but there is also the fact that some shifters had come up
missing. It looks like it is possible that humans,
government or scientists, know about them and have set up a
lab. How can he deal with all this and not lose his mind or
his heart's desire.
KISSING WITH FANGS is a different twist on the average
paranormal theme. We have an alcoholic running a bar and a
vampire who has a wicked ex-girlfriend he doesn't know what
to do with and varied friends who come into play. My
favorite character of all is Mother Nature, Gaia, who is
the perfect "Mom" she makes threats that she "probably"
won't keep and tries to keep her children in line. Though
this book can be taken as rather serious with a number of
true life lessons, I found it funny and sexy. I am a sucker
for "family" camaraderie and that is found in this book
with all the patrons and friends Anthony and Claudia share.
All of which wraps up exceedingly well in the last chapter.
KISSING WITH FANGS is the first book I have read by author
but I will be looking for more without hesitation.
Will she be willing to commit her heart for all
eternity once the fangs come out?
Fletcher has her MBA and a stellar resume, so when the bar
she manages burns down, she could easily move on to bigger
and better things. But something about the bar owner, Anothy
Cross makes it impossible to leave.
never let on to the general public that he's a vampire, and
most of his staff members have no idea Boston Uncommon was a
safe gathering place for supernaturals of all kinds. Now
that it's nothing but ash, the tentative peace among warring
factions is starting to crumble. The last thing he wants to
do is put Claudia in danger, but he also knows there's no
way he can let her go...
