Author(s): 

In the fourth Vegas Vampire book,
bestseller McCarthy
brings us another novel sure to
thrill fans and enchant new readers.
The characterizations are fabulous,
the dialogue clever and the story
world delightfully believable. Both
the humans and vampires are three-dimensional, capable of great emotion and humor.

Vampiress Gwenna Carrick, the 900-year-old ex- wife of notorious vampire Roberto Donatelli, hasn't had it easy since the divorce. She's spent the past 300 years celibate, dealing with the control-freak nature of her loving, casino-owning brother, and fighting off harassment by her domineering ex.

Then she discovers a murder victim and has one wildly passionate night with -- dare she admit it? -- a human. That human, detective Nate Thomas, becomes enraptured by Gwenna. But there are problems everywhere, especially when Nate makes it onto Roberto's hit list. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jan., 304 pp., $14.00)
