The national bestselling author of High Stakes returns to Sin City, where you can get bitten by the gambling bug—or by the sexiest vampire you’ve ever seen…
Campaign manager—and vampire—Seamus Fox has had his fill of women, since he’s been keeping tabs on his presidential candidate’s wife and female entourage. But suddenly he finds himself obsessed by a mysterious stripper who dances behind a screen. The sultry—yet shy—Cara Kim whets his appetite for more. But leave it to Seamus to fall fangs over feet for that rarest of Vegas attractions...a good girl. After a sudden run-in on the street, though, they may soon have a lot more in common...
The sparks fly between Cara Kim, "the oddest attraction in all of Vegas the virgin stripper," and Seamus Fox, a 371-year-old uptight Irish vampire who hasn't had sex in 200 years, in McCarthy's droll follow-up to High Stakes. Seamus, who's the campaign manager for Ethan Carrick, the president of Vampire Nation, must turn Cara into a vampire in order to save her life after she becomes collateral damage in a nasty pre-election skirmish connected to Roberto Donatelli, who's running against Carrick. Donatelli is so eager to unseat conservative Carrick, he'll stop at nothing, even if it means driving a stake into someone or drugging an associate. Though Cara initially finds Seamus controlling and his blood too arousing, she soon finds herself and her five pets, including a devilish Chihuahua, doing more than just a shadow dance in this cute paranormal treat.
