New York Times bestselling author Nina Bruhns presents one of her most beloved titles, NIGHT MISCHIEF, part of the DARK ENCHANTMENTS series, which includes both full length romance novels and short novellas such as this book's companion story, LORD WESTON, VAMPIRE SLAYER.
What good could come of a bargain with the devil?
Lady Dawn Maybank takes her responsibilities to the Cadre, a secret order of demon hunters, very seriously. She never imagines that a thoughtlessly worded university lecture could conjure up her worst nightmare—a demon of vengeance.

As the two organizations fight faithfully for their separate causes, unbeknownst to either of them the dark forces of evil gather, preparing to overtake the mortal realm….
