Renowned spiritualist and medium Caressa Caine is summoned to Raven Crest Manor by Dr. Farral Graves, who wishes to commune with his dead wife, Ravenna. When Caressa does not heed a warning of potential danger, she is lured into the sexually charged world of Dr. Graves and his sadomasochistic geisha, Subi.

Aaron, an opera star and protégé of Dr. Graves, plays a part in a lurid and lustful triangle involving both the late Ravenna, Subi and now Caressa. Animal magnetism abounds between nearly all of them.

Wicked at Midnight is a titillating gothic tale of love and lust. There is no lack of primal, uninhibited, scorching sex. Caressa raises more than spirits in this arousing romp. (Feb., 186 pp., $16.95)
