Crimson Tree Publishing is proud to present Burning Nights, the sixth book in The Ancient Fire Series by Julie Wetzel.
After a wedding filled with werewolves, fay, and vampires, Vicky is looking forward to a nice, quiet honeymoon away from the chaos of Darien’s daily life. But nothing is ever simple with an Ancient Vampire around.
When the Vampire Council of Hawaii finds out Darien and his new bride are coming, they are determined to see that Darien is honored properly. But vampire etiquette isn’t for the faint of heart.
The nights could burn when lines are drawn… and Darien finds himself in a turf war he never intended to start.
When the elevator stopped on their floor, Vicky started to pull away, but Darien caught her lips again and pulled her back. She giggled when the door closed and the elevator started down again. When it stopped a few floors down, she pulled away from his lips and teased him. “We missed our floor.”
He smiled at her. “It will come by again,” he reassured her.
Laughing, she turned her head and rested it on his chest.
He sighed contently as the door slid open and an elderly couple came in. The lady smiled at them while her husband punched the button for the ground floor.
“Could you hit twelve for me, please?” Darien asked.
The man punched the higher number, but his wife’s smile went from sweet to knowing.
“To be young and in love,” she said as she took her husband’s hand for the ride down.
They all rode down in silence, but the old woman turned to them as the elevator stopped. “You kids have a good day. And make sure to get out and see the rest of Hawaii. I’m sure the view from the hotel is nice, but the island has much more to offer.”
“Fran,” her husband chided her. He turned to Darien. “Have a nice day,” he added as he pulled his wife from the elevator. Thankfully, no one got back on before the door closed and the car started back up.
“Kids,” Darien scoffed in amusement.
Vicky laughed. Looking up, she pecked him on the lips again. “You know, to them we do look like kids making out in the corner of the elevator. I’m soaking wet and you’re still in your pajamas.” She tugged on the shoulder of his shirt for emphasis.
Darien rumbled in desire. “Then, how about we go take care of that.”
She giggled again. “Yes.” Meeting his lips, she kissed him once more.
This time, when the elevator stopped on their floor, Darien released her and moved her back a step so he could lead the way to their door. When he got there, he stopped in front of the locked door. Realization washed over him and he turned to Vicky. “I forgot the key,” he admitted.
Vicky laughed and reached into her bag. “Good thing I brought mine.”
Pulling her to his side, he kissed her hair. “Have I told you how amazing you are?” he asked.
“Not today,” she answered, slipping the card into the lock and opening the door. The door clicked open and she pushed it wide. “After you, my husband.”
Darien growled and pulled her into the suite with him. Once clear of the door, he shut it and pushed her up against it, making her drop her bag. “You are the most amazing thing in the world,” he said before he pressed his lips over hers and kissed her until she was breathless. Once he was done showing his appreciation, he backed off and pecked at her lips one last time. “Come on, let’s get you warm.”

Is there such a thing as a normal life when you live with an ancient vampire and a temperamental hellhound?
Victoria Westernly was just starting to think so. With Samhain just around the corner and the promise of a Halloween Ball, her life was looking good. Even the addition of a new master vampire couldn’t bring her down.
When Victoria and Darien become the victims of a series of unfortunate accidents, they know something’s up. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. But, the question is… who is burning what?

Granting Wishes (The Ancient Fire Series Book 5)
Leprechauns don't exist. Or that's what Cathren has always believed, but a chance encounter changes everything. When she saves a handsome stranger from a nasty electrical shock, not only does he claim to be one, but he also insists on granting her wishes. Now she must decide— is he insane, or a magical creature of lore? Unsure which is true, she grabs at the first three wishes she can think of: true love, happiness, and waffles. A tall order for most men, but not for Patrick Brogan. With a little persistence and just a touch of magic, anything is possible.
