        I ve spent all my life in the Midwest, which has certainly shaped my perspective on all kinds of issues, from the question of whether or not we really have an accent, to the many and varied uses of corn.I was born in Evansville, Indiana on April 28, 1965 Mom tells me almost every year what crappy weather it was that day However I like to think of my birthday as the first frost free date for my planting area See what happens when you grow up around farmers Scary, huh After a youth spent up to my eyeballs in fairy tales, nordic myths and supernatural legends I made the solid and practical decision to go to college and major in English After which I never really held a well paying job until this gig came along Which is why my kids love to sing that song to me from the musical Avenue Q The one that begins with the line, What do you do with a B.A in English Once I figured out the answer to that question, I wrote Once Bitten, Twice Shy Now my laptop is my constant companion We reside in an old farmhouse along with my husband and our two teenagers No pets since the cat died last winter, but the birds seem to appreciate his absence They come to feast at the feeders while I write on the back porch in the cool of the morning Lovely.

    1. 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4 just because. There are gnomes in this book! Not those cute little gnomes you may see in your grandmother’s garden or in those travel ads, but meat-eating, nasty, larvae sprouting, musically-challenged gnomes. These gnomes have plans: they want to take over NASA’s Canberra Deep Space Complex.This installment of the Jaz Parks series finds Jaz and her crew down under in Australia. Getting a crew that consists of an assassin, a sniper, a vampire, a seer, a gadgets guy [...]


    2. I keep reading these booksd yet I've only really enjoyed one installment. What is it that keeps me going?I suppose it's the handful of moments toward the end of each that show what Rardin is capable of accomplishing. There's usually a fight scene or a splattering of gore that's particularly exhilarating. In this one, the final showdown is entertaining, as is the audacious use of kangaroos. It's exciting, but I saw the resolution coming many, many chapters before, so We do get a compelling glimps [...]


    3. This is Jennifer Rardin’s sixth ‘Jaz Parks’ book. I've been a big fan from book one. Jasmine (Jaz) Parks is an assassin with the CIA, who works with her handsome Romanian vampire boss, Vayl, to track down supernatural terrorists around the world. Since book one there's been sexual tension between Jaz and Vayl, and this book is all about them finally becoming a couple and trusting each other to rely on one another. Jaz and the team (Vayl, Cole, Bergman, Cassandra) are back and are in Austra [...]


    4. Yay! The Jaz Parks books are always fun, but I felt like the action was kind of toned down in this installment. I'm glad though that there was much more personal interaction between Vayl and Jaz however. Vayl is quite delicious :)


    5. I held on through book 5 hoping that book 6 would bring back the great protagonist I'd initially met, the fun and interesting story lines I'd seen in the first four books, and the snappy writing and dialog which helped push it along.Not so much.The story line for this one involves Jaz and her crew going to Australia to battle gnomes. I'm all for introducing new levels to alternate world and paranormal landscape but this came off as trying too hard. Each book has introduced a slightly new element [...]


    6. Book 6 in the Jaz Parks series, set in of all places, Canberra.Vayl, Jaz and all the team including Raoul get to come to Australia and get stuck fighting Gnomes to save the Canberra based NASA Space Command Centre. Jennifer Rardin obviously did a lot of research on Canberra, kangaroos and our Space Command Centre. And only one glaring mistake did I spot, "flaming jerk", which hasn't been used here in at least 60 years, but there were certainly a lot of 'mates' thrown around too, but I'll let tha [...]


    7. I like series, I like urban fantasy and kick-ass heroines, and I've enjoyed the books in this particular series to different degrees so far. At this point, though, it just seems to be spinning its wheels. I've had to force myself to get halfway through this book, and it's taken weeks! (I'm not a slow reader). I'm giving up.


    8. Looking for a turbo-charged actionfest? Want a solid urban fantasy read with a heroine that doesn't make you want to smack her for being stupid or neurotic? Want a fine hunk of a vamp to partner with her? Protect her? Be willing to die for her? Even though she doesn't need him to because she's strong in her own right?Well then look no further, peeps, because Rardin's Jaz Parks series delivers it all on a silver platter for your reading delight.If you're unfamiliar with the series then start with [...]


    9. Vayl and Jaz's assignment is of the utmost importance. If they fail, NASA's entire infrastructure will crumble leaving one heck of mess in its wake. The job should have been just another notch in their belts, but when Cassandra's Demon comes out to play things get a little hairy as she is one heck of a force to be reckoned with. Add in some crazy voices in Jaz's head, and you have one heck of bumpy ride that may just lead to disaster for this assassin team. They haven't failed a mission yet, but [...]


    10. I can’t get enough of Jaz and Vayl and their kick-ass supporting cast.Jaz is a smart, sassy, CIA Agent. She’s a sensitive who’s died twice and been brought back by her spirit guide to help fight evil. Her gifts continue to grow when she donates blood to Vayl, a werewolf and received tears from Asha. Jasmine lost her old team including her sister-in-law and fiancé. With Vayl’s help, she’s been working on moving past the loss. Vayl is a strong, intelligent, 290 year old vampire and CIA [...]


    11. Again this was a better adventure which I was pleased about and the entire team is back together AT LAST which I'd been hoping for. Gnomes in a cult in Australia worship their God on Saturn and are getting annoyed at NASA messing with its rings and decide to destroy the program. The team are sent to investigate so the last thing they need is Jaz being possessed and Cassandra's demon locating her at last.I so much liked the cult of gnomes story. OK so it sounds a bit dumb but it was a fun idea an [...]


    12. I forgot how much I like Jaz Parks. She really is a great character and her crew is awesome too. It has been quite a while since I last read one of her books so it took me a bit to remember some of the characters and their circumstance but once I did I was off. Miles is a great character with Robo Kitty invention being hysterical to read about. Jaz's dog is also hysterical as well and avail has some lip quirk moments as well. In between the comedy is the more seriousness of the plot about the gn [...]


    13. in this sixth installment of the supernatural mission impossible team led by jaz parks and vampire vayl, they find themselves up at odds as they go into a job that should be a walk in the park. when they get their they realize that the "fun" is just beginning. in order to stop a pack of religiously fanatic gnomes jaz and team head to australia in order to scope out and eliminate their targets. along the way jaz finds out she has a familiar tag-along who has plans of his own. they also have to fa [...]


    14. This was an enjoyable read, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the others in the series. (view spoiler)[I was glad that Jaz and Vayl are finally together, though! (hide spoiler)] I will say I did laugh really hard at times, but I didn't really find the villains that convincing in this one maybe it's because they were skewed by Jaz's awesome, but slightly odd view? Still, I enjoyed the read and look forward to picking up the next installment.


    15. It's another fabulous Jaz Parks saga!!!! I loved it!!! Please do yourself a favor and read this book now!!! As usual it was smart, funny, witty, and adventurous!! It will really make you rethink your feelings about gnomes! Every time I see a garden gnome now I get the willies!!!



    16. This is the 6th book in the Jaz Parks series by Jennifer Rardin. The 7th book "Bitten in Two" will be out in 2010. Last I read there are 8 books planned for this series. This was another great book; tons of action and humor.Jaz and crew are assigned to a mission in which some gnomes are trying to take out the Australian based NASA complex. Not a straight-forward mission in and of itself. Things get even more complicated when Jaz discovers she's been possessed by King Brude, Lucifer's assassin. T [...]


    17. Bite Marks is probably a little weaker than the previous two installments. The whole team is back together again and this time they are headed to Australia to help NASA from being taken over by Gnomes. Besides NASA our group is also dealing with the reemergence of Cassandra's demon (the one who helped her out of servitude all those centuries ago) and Jaz's mind being taken over by voices (King Brude).For me, there was just too much going on here. And the events take place only over the course of [...]


    18. Jasmine "Jaz" Parks is an assassin working for a special branch of the CIA. Bite Marks is the sixth book of Jennifer Rardin's paranormal fantasy series. In this book, Jaz finds herself in Australia. With her is her boss (and lover), the centuries-old vampire Vayl; her nerdy and brilliant former college roomate Bergman, who creates marvellous gadgets for her and her team; the ex-PI turned CIA-sniper Cole (who used to have a crush on her); and Cassandra, the gorgeous centuries-old seeress and form [...]


    19. My thoughtsI am a series reader. Picking up a book from a series is like having lunch with an old friend or (wiggles eyebrows) an old flame. In true Jaz Parks style, Jennifer Rardin does not disappoint with the sixth installment in this action packed series. Jaz and her team find themselves trying to save the Space Program. She also finds herself with some extra company who makes their mission even more difficult. All of my favorites are around to take part in the action including Cole, Cassandr [...]


    20. Better the second time round. Although there are still bits I don't quite get (why they have to go to Morocco to find the Rocenz for example), maybe my mind wasn't quite on it.There is the air of change in this story - the feeling that Jazz's time working for the government is coming to an end.After finally getting busy with Vayl (between books), while she recovered from her injuries picked up in the last book, the whole crew arrive in Australia. This time to stop Gnomes from destroying a NASA s [...]


    21. Jaz & Vayl’s steamy vacation on his private island (BTW- I want, I want!) is cut short when Pete asks them to travel to Australia and stop a group of gnomes from wreaking havoc on and ultimately taking out the Canberra Deep Space Complex. With the whole team back together they head to their safe house but then come under attack by the demon Kyphas, who has a contract for Cassandra’s soul. Raoul arrives to help out with his demon fighting weaponry and with Bergman’s latest invention, a [...]


    22. Jaz and crew are assigned to a mission in which some gnomes are trying to take out the Australian based NASA complex. Not a straight-forward mission in and of itself. Things get even more complicated when Jaz discovers she's been possessed by King Brude, Lucifer's assassin. Then when they arrive in Australia they find out the demon Cassandra has been fleeing from has finally found her. To add to this mess Cole is set on petting a kangaroo and Bergman has created a new robo-kitty called Astral th [...]


    23. Series Rating: 4 out of 5 starts!This is a Series Review:A kick-ass heroine, a hot vampire boss, quirky and fun sidekicks and a lot of action and adventure… What else can you ask of an Urban Fantasy series? The Jaz Parks series by Jennifer Rardin definitely has all that and so much more.Jaz is an assassin’s assistant for the CIA. She works for Vayl, a Vampire who was killed by his Vampire wife almost 300 years ago. From the start we get to see that they have a great working relationship that [...]


    24. Picking up where book 5 left off, Jaz and Vayl's vacation gets cut short when Pete sends them out to deal with a threat against a NASA space complex in Australia. Apparently the Gnomes religious leaders have concocted a plan to infiltrate the complex and cause problems to ensure the privacy of their god, Ufran, who lives on one of the rings of Saturn. Unfortunately for Jaz and company, their cover as an American film production company gets put to the test when the demon Cassandra made her deal [...]


    25. Jennifer Rardin never disappoints and always leaves me craving more. In each new novel Rardin creates an intricate web of smaller stories that all mesh perfectly in the end to create all of the awesome Jaz Parks stories. After all of the major movements in the last book, this was what I call a turnaround book. The last book wrapped a lot of things up, so to continue this series this book consisted of several changes. Vahl and Jasamine are making quite the romance; the rendezvous are also short a [...]


    26. Jaz and company are back with another adventure. I loved this book because the whole crew was back!! The just seem like such a dysfunctional family, and I love how they all give each other so much crap!! Although the mysterious bad guy was pretty easy to figure out, I still thought the book was great as Jaz really had to confront some hard issues in her life.Seeing Jaz deal with all of her inner voices was cracking me up, especially seeing as how one of those was a possession for the last job. A [...]


    27. Really good follow up to the the 5th book and as always I love Vayl and Jaz but I agree with another reviewer when she said - Enough already, Vayl loves you - learn to deal. However, Jaz's insecurities came to the forefront but I definitely think she is growing as a character and learning how to be more comfortable in her own skin. Vayl has his own hidden depths and I definitely want to learn more about this new ability that Jaz has that links the two of them.Cole, Miles and Cassandra also make [...]


    28. I can't say enough good about this series. This book brought back all of my favorites to the team and even added a new member--Astral the Robokitty! Oh and there was a demon. Not sure what they are going to do with Kyphas in #7. It was great to see all these threads coming from earlier in the series to add to the plot of this book (and so much more to be added to the continuing plot thread that I can't wait to see what happens). I was so happy to see Cassandra and Bergman again that it was like [...]


    29. Plot Summary: Jaz and Vayl's vacation is cut short when Pete sends them out to deal with a threat against a NASA space complex in Australia. Gnomes have concocted a plan to infiltrate the complex and cause problems to ensure the privacy of their god, Ufran, who lives on one of the rings of Saturn. While in Australia, Kyphas, the demon Cassandra made her deal with, has finally found her and come to collect on the debt. And as if killing gnomes, assassinating gnome larvae carriers, and battling de [...]
