Charles Cunningham Nash is a mysterious recluse financing an archaeological dig in the California desert. Hot on the heels of an interview, reporter Regan Cluny takes on the barren desert landscape in search of Nash. Determined to find out his secrets, Regan meets with trouble...the deadly kind of trouble. Cornered by a rough biker gang she is savaged and left for dead by the side of the road. Miraculously she survives, but she’s haunted by strange hallucinations of men with glowing red eyes and of her saviour, the handsome recluse, Nash. The attraction between them is instantaneous.
What Regan doesn’t know is Nash is a vampire, one tied to her attackers by a blood feud dating back to the Civil War. Rather than being a savage, Nash longs for a mortal life. His search at Juniper Basin is linked to his search for a vampirism cure. Yet he hungers for just one taste of Regan’s blood.
Can love flourish, or will Nash’s dark secrets mean Regan must pay the highest price as part of a long standing feud?
Something Wicked is one of the most entertaining paranormal romance books this reviewer has read in a while. From start to finish the story is a real page turner! The storyline is packed full of twist and turns, a blood feud, and a romance that sizzles off the page. What makes the story really come alive is the characters. Regan is a feisty heroine who lives life to the fullest, once she gets her teeth into a story she refuses to let go. Nash, on the other hand, is one of the sexiest, moral vampires I have ever read about. Seeing them together is purely explosive! Especially as Nash tries to fight his blood urges.
If you are looking for a story of good versus evil, romance and passion abound, some humor and a dash of Buffy-like vampires, then I can highly recommend Something Wicked. In fact, if you are a paranormal romance lover and you don’t read this book, you are missing out!
