Holly Parrish has never met anyone like Micah Ravenwood: his dark eyes, his movie-star smile, the indefinable way he looks at her. Even when she thought he was no more than another client for her investment firm, her lust overpowered her logic.
But she never expected this attraction to whisk her from her busy southern California life to a silent and eerie ghost town in Wyoming. Only vampires call the deserted place home and one of them is Micah. He says he s brought her to Morgan Creek for her safety, that vicious creatures are hunting her. But how can Holly trust him? One look and she can see the need barely restrained behind Micah s polite words. The heat of his kiss, the pleasure of his touch none of it can tell her whether he wants her as his lover or his prey . . .
A classic vampire tale of sensual, spine-tingling suspense. Christine Feehan on Desire After Dark

Ashley’s sequel to As Twilight Falls is a tender paranormal romance exploring love and family ties, and it’s tinged with intrigue and vengeance. After meeting in a southern California bar, grieving vampire Micah Ravenwood and vivacious, logical investment broker Holly Parrish revel in their mesmerizing attraction to each other. When Micah senses imminent danger from a revenge-seeking vampire, he whisks Holly to the ghost town of Morgan Creek, Wyo., putting their relationship in crisis: Holly’s world is turned upside down when she learns that Micah is a vampire, and she’s now the only human living with three vampires in the abandoned town. Heartfelt discussions regarding Holly’s mixed feelings about vampires (curiosity, fascination, revulsion), and Micah’s family troubles and lust for Holly, lead to a compromise that’s upended when Holly is kidnapped. The only way to save her may be to turn her. A cliff-hanger ending nicely sets up the next book. Though not quite as engaging as some of Ashley’s other work, this portrait of new love is sweet and endearing. Agent: Ethan Ellenberg, Ethan Ellenberg Literary. (Sept.)
