A night of indulgence can feel like an eternity. Gwenna Carrick has a history-900 years of it. As the vampiress ex-wife of the notorious vampire Roberto Donatelli, she must keep a low profile. Not easy when you're bathed in the neon glow of Las Vegas-especially when there's a whole online group of vampire slayers bent on dealing you your last hand.
A wild night with a stranger was not in the cards for Gwenna. But that's what happened when she met the ruggedly handsome detective Nate Thomas. Their passion made her feel alive again. But when Donatelli catches wind of the tryst, he's determined to clean house, with Nate the first on his to-off list. Gwenna knows she hit the jackpot with Nate and won't let anyone stand in the way. But both soon realize they have far more enemies than Donatelli- both on the strip and underground.

The fourth installment of McCarthy’s toothsome Vegas Vampire series (following Bled Dry) finds sexy Gwenna Carrick, a 900-year-old vampire, living at the casino owned by her brother, Ethan Carrick, the current president of the Vampire Nation. She meets Metro police detective Nate Thomas at a crime scene and offers her help in cracking a case involving an Internet vampire slayers group. Nate is grieving over the death of his sister, and Gwenna has been divorced from Vampire Nation vice president Roberto Donatelli for 300 celibate years. Sparks flare into true love very quickly—inflaming Gwenna’s jealous ex-husband, who quickly orders a hit on Nate. Worse challenges await the lovers, as McCarthy delivers her latest with fang-in-cheek flair. (Jan.)
