What Happens in Vegas…After Dark releases today!


Harlequin Spice
ISBN-10: 0373605315
ISBN-13: 978-0373605316
Release Date: May 1, 2009

My story in this anthology is called THE PROMISE. It’s a prequel to THE DEAL, (WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS… the first anthology, released in 2008), and tells Damian’s story and how/why he came to jilt Cassidy at the altar on their wedding day.

Blurb for The Promise:

Damian has always felt out of step with his people. His people, as in, humanity. There’s a good reason why he’s never fit in and he’s about to discover it.

On the morning of his wedding, he’s greeted by two brainless thugs bent on preventing him from getting to the chapel. Instead they drag him to a seedy nightclub on the strip, a place Damian mysteriously has never noticed.

There he meets Elena, who is not his fiancée but is the woman of his dreams. His soul mate. His perfect fit. Together they find the kind of love that most people only ever dream of. She reveals to him a whole new world and shows him his true self. Suddenly all the stars are aligned and the universe is singing.

But along with Elena comes a mess of problems. Not only is Damian engaged to be married, but so is Elena. Damian knows he must let his fiancée go for her own good—so she can also find true love. However, breaking Elena’s betrothal could mean death for them both.
True love might not be in the cards for either of them.

Here’s the whole official blurb for the book:

Las Vegas… it’s the town that lives up to the promise of its nickname, Sin City. A gamblers’ paradise for innocent tourists, it conceals a darker, sexual world where the ethereal and wraithlike meet to play a different game….

If there’s one thing succubus Deitre understands it’s revenge. That, and enticing men into arousing, exciting and, okay, perilous sex (for him). Beautiful on the outside, demon on the inside, she’s going to get back at the naughty firefighter in Darkness…unless he plays his cards right…

Bounty hunter Nell is a hell of a tracker. Now she’s in Vegas on the tail of the witch who dared to steal from her clan. She’s going to get to the unsavory harlot through the woman’s ex-fiancé, and nothing about their charged encounters will be shallow, quick or friendly.

When the half-blood fae male comes to club Darkness, Elena can’t resist acting on the mind-blowing heat coursing between them. She might be betrothed to another, but fae culture says sex with other men until marriage is most definitely foretold.

Tattoo artist Devi is the latent vampire the warlocks need to heal all wounds. But taking her power is a sexually exhausting and dangerous task requiring dark deception…and gambling on her life.

  26. Congrats on your new release! What Happens In Vegas… After Dark sounds great.

  27. I loved my one trip to Vegas but I dropped a lot on the tables and slots. I think I’m better off reading a book with Vegas as a setting than actually going there.

  29. I love the cover! The one for What Happens In Vegas… does nothing for me but this one? Very nice.

  30. Great Prize!! I loved “What happens in Vegas”. Great authors, unique stories, and a fantastic setting. I’m even more excited for the sequel simply because of the extra special paranormal ingredient 😉

  31. The teaser has got me drooling ….

  34. I would really love to win this book because I have no money to buy any more books this month (JR Ward’s new book is a hardcover – expensive!).
    I love your books and can’t wait for Witch Fury (which has been worked into that month’s budget!)!
