What chance does a girl have against the matchmaker from hell, an eight hundred-year-old vampire, and chocolate? Donna Nolan is about to find out in Nina Bangs’ Wicked Nights.

Radio talk-show host Donna Nolan is not exactly thrilled to be hosting her show at the Castle of Dark Dreams; the sensational attraction in the adult theme park, Live the Fantasy. Since her policy is to always be open to what her listeners have to say it is impossible for her to say no. Donna has had enough of fielding calls about night creatures depleting Texan women of their carnal appetites. She promised to take her show to the castle, the creature’s headquarters, if in turn there would be no more calls. At least until she was in the castle.

The first person Donna meets is the enigmatic Sparkle Stardust, cosmic troublemaker and owner of the candy store that is patronized by the erotically appealing Eric McNair. Had Donna known she was meeting the matchmaker from hell she may have gone running home. There is much more Donna is not privy to like the fact that Eric the Evil can hear her thoughts and then there is his plan to make her leave Galveston and the Castle of Dark Dreams behind. He hadn’t survived for eight hundred years to have some woman discover all his secrets and disrupt his world.

Donna is a control freak and headstrong. She may have started out not wanting to be at the castle, but knowing someone else didn’t want her there erased all hesitancy from her mind. The investigation would take place regardless of the little fantasy the owner insisted she experience upon her arrival. If that fantasy was a sample of Eric’s allure then Donna knew she was going to have to keep her wits about her in order to get anything done.

Prepare to be seduced by Nina Bangs’ Wicked Nights, the first in a new trilogy by the author. The adventures of three sexy brothers begin with Eric, a vampire with a sweet tooth. Bangs’ trademark humor and passionate characters provide readers with an irresistible story that will undoubtedly leave them begging for more. After all, who can resist an incredibly sexy man who smells like dark chocolate?
