"An amusing urban vampire tale"
All she ever wanted was someone who appreciated and
cherished her. Instead, every male she ever met and went
out with could be classified as card-carrying members of
the 4F club (not the selective service interpretation).
Being thirty seven and alone has driven Allison Garrett to
seek men at the Silver Concho Saloon, but Seth is different
than any man she ever met before. Not that he really cares,
but he leaves Allison as everyone else has, but this time
the man's nips, nibbles, and tucks change her into a
vampire. Allison sees her new hunger for men from a
different light (or is that dark?). Starting with a pick-up
at her favorite bar, Allison plans "to suck males dry".
When Mica "Chosen Preacher to the People" Poke meets
Allison, he falls for her, even though she is a messenger
from the dark side. However, the nights in Los Angeles turn
ugly, as a vampire group wants to perform the dance of the
dead on Mica and Allison.
NIGHT PRAYERS is an amusing urban vampire tale that horror
readers who enjoy a twist of humor and satire in their
novels will find quite entertaining. The story line is a
romp through the underside of Los Angeles, but what makes
P.D. Cacek's book enticing is the characters. Allison is a
desperate loser until she receives her otherworldly powers
that grant her the ability to strike out at all those 4F
men who dumped her over the years. However, her troubles do
not vanish. They change. This is an enticing vampire tale
that will send readers seeking other works by this Stroker

Stoker Award winning author P.D. Cacek's wryly witty romp introduces Allison Garret -- thirtysomething, biological clock loudly ticking and perpetually unlucky inlife and love. But it will take more than luck when she wakes up in a seedy motel room...as a vampire! In a rollicking tour of the seamy underbelly of L.A., Allison hooks up with a young Bible-thumping street corner preacher, but they'll both need more than a night full of prayers to escape the clutches of a catty coven of strip club vampires out for blood.
