Smoldering Nights by Lisa Carlisle

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.

About Lacy

A deep and abiding love for words—written, spoken, or sung—drives Lacy in everything she does—work, creativity, and spare time. I love reading, writing, listening to music, and watching movies and TV. My love affair with books began as a young child and shows no signs of stopping. A number of my earliest and fondest memories are of going to the library and checking out books with my sister and my mom. As children my sister and I spent a lot of time at the library, and as we’ve grown older we’ve amassed so many books that we don’t need to go to the library quite as much but it’s still such a treat to be in that place that stores so much knowledge, adventures, and new experiences. In my spare time you can catch me either at the bookstore, reading, writing, or watching movies at the theater, or watching movies and TV shows at home. Watching movies and TV is a close second for my favorite way to chill out. Although I love to read and can be found reading just about any type of fiction, my first and current love is for romances. So, if you find me reading a book that’s not romance, chances are it has a love story either at its core or somewhere in the novel. I’m fascinated by the relationships and connections forged between people and I think that’s why I love romance so much in books, movies, and TV.
