"Excellent supernatural romance"
Needing freedom from the overwhelming expectations of her
parents, Erin Greenway moves from Arizona to Pine Forest,
Colorado, to become a librarian in the small town
described to her by her best friend, who insists most
locals believe in ghosts. Since it is Halloween, Erin and
another librarian decorate the library for a children's
spooky story hour. As she arrives at the library, Erin
hears eerie noises and smells a nasty odor. She is
thinking of yesterday's assault on a woman when the voices
enter her mind. One sounds threatening while the other
seems protectively sexy.
Visiting Scot Lachlan Tavish is in town hunting the
Ancient Vampire, who killed his parents and left him for
dead. Lachlan believes that the vampire has staked out
Erin and he plans to keep her safe though she distrusts
his motives. Still, neither can resist the passion
between them and soon make love. However, the malevolent
blood sucker is coming for both of them and love is not a
good emotion to have when one needs logic, and rational
thought, items that have abandoned Erin and Lachlan.
Fans of erotic vampire romances will gain great pleasure
from Denise Agnew's fantastic DEEP IN THE NIGHT: DARK
FIRE. The story line is action-packed as readers
anticipate a powerful final confrontation, but also is
filled with an ardent romance so that the audience
receives additional pleasure from the cleverly designed
plot pulling in two directions. Erin and Lachlan are a
delightful couple regardless of which vernacular they use
and the villain is as vile a foe as one can imagine.
Halloween is rarely as good as this tale is.
