Mary Hughes and the Perfect Gift is a Book

No holiday in our family is complete without a trip to the bookstore. The hardest person to buy for is our twenty-something punk-rock writer son. But now I just look for the latest in the Fables series, a great set of graphic novels with a contemporary take on favorite fairy tales. Not only does he love them, we do too!

Fables Vol. 1: Legends in Exile [Paperback]
Bill Willingham (Author)
Lan Medina (Illustrator)

Bite My Fire by Mary Hughes
Red-hot vampire romance with humor

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.

Vampire romance= my favorite type of books. I can't get enough of them.

I love getting graphic novels for the 20 somethings, my daughter who is 20 years old loved the graphic novel I won in a blog contest and has had it ever since I let her borrow it. *hey, wait a minute..I need that back so I can read it too*

Thanks Mary. I have a 20 something nephew that is a big question mark for me right now, so the graphic novel idea could make a perfect gift for him.
