More Bark than Bite is a wonderfully written paranormal romance by Melissa Hosack.
Morgan Phillips is a reporter who on the advice of a friend uses a rouse to get the attention of Officer Graham Audrick, with the hope that she can get some information on a case for a story. Graham is a cop with deep secrets that Morgan is going to have to come to terms with as a serial killer becomes obsessed with Graham, if she is going to claim the love of her life.
Ms. Hosack’s characters are funny and charming; with intelligence, that makes this paranormal story so believable. This is a fast-paced story, with an engaging plot and steamy passion that make the reader long to be one of the characters in the story. Even though this book has dark undertones, there is sparkling humor that just adds to the richness of the story. I enjoyed reading this book and stepping into the world that Ms. Hosack has created and would really like returning there in future books. This delightful heart-warming book is a definite keeper and a book that I would recommend.
