DESIRE AFTER DARK
Ashley writes standard vampire fare, that, although the story and characters are far from innovative, will satiate die-hard fans of the genre. Falco's character is completely silly and over-the-top, but Ashley does a nice job creating real emotions between her couples.
Victoria finds an unlikely champion in vampire Antonio Battista after discovering that she is Falco's latest target. They have instant chemistry and, in the midst of fighting for their lives, fall in love.
