Night's Kiss by Mary Hughes - Blog Tour


by Mary Hughes
Publication Date: November 18, 2019
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Amara, Paranormal, Romance, Vampires


As a human who hunts vampires, I risk death each night I take to the streets. Bloodsuckers are stupidly fast. I have only my wits, my practice, and my weapons.

Oh yeah, and my rage.

Vampires killed my parents before my eyes when I was young. My revenge? I'll destroy every last one of the evil bastards, starting with their king.

But only one man can help me locate the king. Achingly tall, dark, and too-sexy-for-his-own-good, Ryker is gorgeous enough to be the vamp king himself. But the devilish arch to his black eyebrow, his white, unfangy grin, and rocking the daytime are good clues that he's human.

We'll have to work together as uneasy allies if I hope to get my final revenge on the king, only now it seems evil monsters are also after our prey, and they'll stop at nothing to see us all dead. And why are they having so much trouble finding the king?

Each book in the Ancients series is STANDALONE

The take on this vampire lore is quite different, and somewhat a little farfetched.

Kat isn't one of the most endearing characters. She is narrow minded, and her discrimination towards the vampires is very tunnelled. Understandably so, since she witnessed the vile acts against her family when she was a child. Up to a point, her loss explains her attitude, but to tarnish the whole race is a little hard to swallow. She acts as this brave, face it all heroine, but this backfires as she comes across as being smug. The other thing that I didn't like about her is naming her arsenal of weapons. OK, it's a bit of fun in the begenning, but the novelty wears off when it's constantly repeated. Her involvement in the battles is totally over the top, almost laughable. I found myself struggling with trying hard to like and connect with her.

Now Ryker is a totally different story. He is everything I expect from an ancient vampire. He might have been reluctant in forming attachments with anyone, but his reasons for doing so are more plausible. I rather like him, and wish I could say the same for Kat.

Overall, it's an entertaining read, but I feel that I am missing something. The blurb says that it's a standalone, and maybe if I had read the previous book, my views would be different.

I was kindly issued with an eARC from Netgalley and the views expressed are my personal opinion.


I write wickedly fun romantic adventures and steamy paranormal romances, stories that crackle with action and love. Challenging, alpha men, and women not afraid of a challenge. Oh, do the sparks fly when he meets THE woman guaranteed to infuriate and inflame him most. In real life I'm an author, a spouse and mother, a flutist, a computer geek, and a binge-TV-watcher of The Flash, Elementary, NCIS, and Wynonna Earp.
