Overview

Destiny doesn't like to be messed with. And the House doesn't always win.

Soulgirls, Book 1

Fifty years ago, Jeannie Williams made her way to Las Vegas seeking fame and fortune. Instead, she lost her soul and wound up performing nightly shows at the Arcana Royale. Every day, she straps on her feathers, her glitter, her stilettos, and she dances. Every day, it’s the same.

Until the day he walks in.

For six centuries, Malcolm Reynolds has been the go-to guy for anything his family needs: warrior, diplomat, wrangler, researcher, and now an attorney. He enters the Arcana Royale Casino, intent on negotiating the release of his cousin’s bad debt, but one look at the golden-skinned showgirl ignites a fire of need that he’s never experienced. When the fantasy come true sits at his table, words he never expected to hear come out of her lush mouth: “I need your help.”

Now he’s in for the toughest battle of his life, because the Overseers own both his cousin’s debt and her soul. And he’s not planning on leaving the Royale without either one.

This book has been previously published and has been revised and expanded from its original release.

Warning: Contains high-stakes games, sexy showgirls, and a powerful showdown between a vampire that can’t lose and the House that never does. Spells, slots, sirens and sex, oh my!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
At night she is Pandora, mistress of the Midnight Mystery Lounge at the Arcana Royale casino in Las Vegas, where she has been captivating audiences with her hypnotic voice and sultry moves for the past 50 years. But her otherworldly audience is unaware that behind her smiles, Jeannie Williams is doomed to perform the same song and dance routine night after night for another 100 years, and it is more than she can bear. A powerful vampire, Malcolm Reynolds arrives at the casino to unravel a sticky situation involving one of his family members, and when Jeannie first catches his gaze during one of her shows, she instantly senses that he is capable of taking her away from her life of servitude. True to his nature, Malcolm is willing to rescue Jeannie when he hears of her plight. But then he discovers her secrets, and if there is a choice between Jeannie and his family, will he make the right one?

Verdict Although the idea is a solid and unique one, and several surprises do entertain, this first book in the “Soulgirls” series suffers from limited scenery, insipid characters, and tedious dialog. The author’s attempt at mixing Old World characteristics with the shine of the modern world falls short. Not recommended.—Natasha Grant, New York

    4.5 out of 5 Licks

    This is my first Heather Long read-I know I'm sorry!-and I loved it! The best indicator of how much I liked a book is whether or not I could stop reading long enough to go to bed. Needless to say I lost a lot of sleep once I started this one! Another indicator is how quickly I move to the next book in the series. Needless to say this book passed both tests. I love all things paranormal and I thought the world in this story was really fascinating. The particular condition that the Soul Girls find themselves in fascinated me. You know I'm not into spoilers so I don't want to give too much away about that. Malcolm is a vampire so he's been around for a long time (and I do mean a long time) and he's never found someone to settle down with. Jeannie is just going through the motions as the head showgirl at the casino she is trapped in, but then she spots Malcolm in the audience and her entire world is thrown for a loop. I really enjoyed getting to watch the flame between these two get hotter and hotter. They had more than just a physical connection though and that's what really drew me into the book. I really hope to see more of these two as the series progresses.

    I¿ve been to Vegas, but not this Vegas. I want to go to the Vega

    I’ve been to Vegas, but not this Vegas. I want to go to the Vegas that Ms. Long creates. This is a world that is cruel at times, fantastic and amazing all rolled together.




    Jeannie “Pandora” Williams, arrived in Vegas fifty years ago, only to make a simple mistake and ended up dancing as their lead showgirl Pandora for the last fifty years. I loved Jeannie from the start; she was strong, graceful and beautiful. The kind of heroine that it’s easy to fall in love with, it’s easy to see why she was chosen as lead dancer so she can seduce the senses every night.




    Malcom Reynolds, is a lawyer, warrior and protector of his clan. He was sent to Vegas to bail out his cousin once again. He’s dashing, handsome, and easily enchanted by Jeannie’s beauty and her plight. He endeared me to him when he chose to help Jeannie.




    Overall, this is a beautiful, engaging world that I want to visit over and over again. Ms. Long shows that she’s a true geek with references that I enjoyed noticing, I don’t think the references being noticed or not truly add or lessen the story, but I did enjoy them. I want to know the rest of the Soulgirls stories and hopefully we will have them soon. Please!
