Release day: Biting Oz

14 August 2012

Today is the official release of Biting Oz by Mary Hughes (Biting Love Book 5) (ebook, Samhain). Here’s the blurb:

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.

Mary dropped by today to tell us a bit about this book:

Biting Oz is shaped by my own experiences playing Reed II in the pit orchestra for the musical The Wizard of Oz–although I have to admit we didn’t have quite the number or degree of catastrophes Junior deals with (or the tongue-lolling gorgeous vampires, come to think :). One of the joys of working in live theatre is that you never know what will happen. This is doubly true when real animals are used in the show. Our Toto, a cute terrier, got so comfortable being onstage that in the middle of a performance he plopped down and started licking his, um, scenery. Not even my fictional Toto could top that!

You can find out more about the book at Mary’s website and buy it at Samhain.
