There's something about the night, especially at this time of year, when darkness falls ever earlier and nature begins its yearly march toward's winter's gloom.
The fog rolls in and shadows creep along the walls; unexpected noises sound more eerie, the wind sends leaves scuttling and sets branches to quivering, and there's a spine-tingling awareness of all the changes taking place about you. Above all, there's a crispness in the air that calls for a crackling fire and the need to cuddle under your favorite afghan with a really good, scary book.
Our choice for this time of year? A novel featuring Creatures of The Night. Vampires, werewolves, even dark and dangerous phantoms--they all make for unusual, satisfying, and unexpectedly sensual reads. Creatures of The Night both frighten and fascinate us. Brooding, lonely, tormented souls, these nightly beings possess powers beyond our mortal experience.
Vampires, for example, are not only much stronger than mere men, but also possess hypnotic powers. They can command the will of animals and transform themselves into mist or become invisible in order to escape enemies. An unusual choice for a hero, you say? Yes... but only imagine the possibilities -- and difficulties -- that falling in love with such a being creates.
These definitely aren't your ordinary love stories. Far from it. Such romances between the mystical and mere mortal can be forbidden, secret, and even dangerous, but also thrilling and filled with delightful mystery and powerful desire. But one thing is certain: you won't be able to put these entirely enjoyable reads down once you've picked them up. If you're looking for the ultimate in great Fall reading, try one of our sensual, spine-tingling, thoroughly satisfying Creature of The Night offerings.
