Half-human, half-vampire Frederica LaValois is the worlds most feared vampire hunter. She tracks those of the clan who still feed on humans and brings them to justice. Her latest assignment brings her to New York on the trail of wealthy, sexy nightclub owner Eduard D'Arcy.

Eduard is completely mystified by Frederica. Is there more to her than meets the eye? He struggles with his quandary as Frederica intensifies her investigation.

Eduard is an enigma to Frederica. Is he the vampire she is hunting, or a mortal?

The many threads of vampire legends and present day vampire "laws" converge as the explosive passion between Eduard and Frederica unleash an ancient enemy's curse that threatens to destroy them all.

Readers who have followed Ms. Gideons series since the beginning (as well as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fans) will want to sink their teeth into this hypnotic and compelling tale. Hard to put down and seductive, MIDNIGHT GAMBLE kept this reader completely enthralled. All I can say is—more! (May, 350 pp., $5.00)
