Firefighter Nike’s plans to unwind with drinks and dancing take an unexpected but thrilling turn when she gets up close and personal with the gorgeous man from the gym she has been crushing on and fantasizing about from afar. A far from normal man with a lot of secrets, Michel is just as into Nike as she is him. When he spots her at Vamps, he finally makes his move, inviting her to spend the night with him. A vengeful enemy from Michel’s past tries to kill Michel and Nike, sending them on the run together.
Nike sheds her firefighter uniform and persona at night to dress like a sexy Goth girl and dance the stress of her job away at her favorite night club Vamps with her co-worker and friend Maya. Although she is usually confident and assertive, Michel makes her feel like a tongue-tied school girl. A mysterious and sexy French vampire, Michel has avoided relationships and emotional attachments, but something about Nike draws him to her and makes him want to change that.
Both Nike and Michel are likeable characters with nicely-developed chemistry. The story is interesting and flows well until the end, which is a bit anti-climactic and rushed. Still, Smoldering Nights is an entertaining, sexy novella with a strong heroine and intriguing hero thrown into a suspenseful life or death race for their lives.
