Verah the witch incarcerated Gideon Marquet with silver chains. She uses his blood as a fountain of youth and forces her slave to kill innocent women for his sustenance by starving him until he cannot control his basic need.

Verah’s latest female prisoner is Kiya “Kay” Alissano, daughter of the Shadow Pack werewolf alpha. The werewolf and the vampire plot to escape the witch’s captive when the full moon enables her to change if she lives that long. As they work together on their escape, they fall in love but she is the intended of nasty Victor Rinaldi, son of a rival pack alpha. Thus Verah and two packs pursue these escaped star-crossed lovers.

Desire the Night is an entertaining paranormal romance starring two intrepid warriors falling in forbidden love. Fast-paced, fans will enjoy the escapades of the heroic lead couple though the villains are one dimensional and a spousal “forced” rape seems trivialized. Still the vampire and werewolf make for an engaging romantic thriller as seemingly the world chases them.
