This sequel to The Devil at Midnight is another installment in Holly’s Upyr novels. Holly consistently delivers scorching sensuality and a dark, mysterious plot. Here she combines her talents in a tale of 1950s Hollywood film and vampires all with a surprising twist. It’s quite a fun and heady combination of mystery, romance, suspense and vampires.

Grace Gladwell is determined to make a name for herself as a director. She’s been taken under the wing of director and producer Naomi Wei to produce a movie, I Was a Teen-Age Vampire. Her first task is to convince Christian Durand to take the leading role. She has a dark and unexplainable attraction to Christian. Soon someone starts gunning for her. Christian cannot believe his eyes. Nim, his maker, surely must be taunting him by bringing his lost love, and betrayer, to him. He lost Grace 500 years ago. She’s a symbol of death and betrayal, but he still loves her. Unfortunately, she doesn’t remember him. Christian gets closer to Grace to try and trigger her memory. But sticking close to Grace soon means protecting her from a killer. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jan., 352 pp., $7.99)
