Waiting in the Wings

Soulgirls, Book 3

Another awesome story about the Arcana Royale, a casino for paranormals located in Las Vegas. You know the saying what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? While, for some women, it’s not the happenings that stay but they stay. Kiki doesn’t remember anything prior to her being a show girl at the Arcana Royale. She’s cursed, as all the girls are. Her husband happens to be the vampire Prince of New York and when he learns where she is, things are going to get quite interesting. Vampires, witches, weres and even demons play a role in this outstanding romance. There are twists and turns that are not only unexpected but at times shocking. Yet, it all fits together and is a spellbinding story that I couldn’t put down. Though fairly short, just over 100 pages, this story has a big punch. Characters from previous stories make short appearances in this one so it’s not necessary to read the other books prior to this one but this is a fantastic series. Ms Long did an outstanding job on this book and this series.

Kiki stormed out of Richard’s life about 50 years ago. He thought she’d be gone for a few days and then return but she didn’t. He’s been looking for her ever since. When a friend locates her at the Arcana Royale in Las Vegas, Richard doesn’t waste any time in going there. However, Kiki doesn’t remember Richard or how she came to be part of the show. To free her, Richard is going to have to make a deal with the Overseers and then there is no guarantee that they will accept the deal or that Kiki will go home with him. But, he can’t leave her!

Book Blurb for Waiting in the Wings

What a prince wants…he takes.

Who can blame Richard for his half-century-long bad mood? For fifty years he’s been waiting for his bride to get over the spat that sent her storming away from the safety of his territory. For fifty years, he’s missed everything about her—even her whimsical challenges to his authority.

It’s time for her to come home, but when he gets a lead on her whereabouts, he’s stunned. She’s dancing in a glitzy, gaudy Las Vegas show. And her memory of him has been wiped clean.

Kiki finally has the opportunity to headline at the Arcana Royale, but she’s not sure she’s happy about it. Especially when a dark, handsome stranger arouses forbidden passions from deep inside the fog of her lost past.

Richard has been granted only three days in hostile territory to free his Kiki from the curse binding her mind.

Only one problem. When Kiki remembers Richard, she may not forgive him, but if she never remembers, she’ll never be free.

Warning: Contains an arrogant-as-hell vampire prince who will stop at nothing to get the girl he loves, an unpredictable showgirl who loves to party, and scorching sex that drives them both wild.
