Magnus Thornton is a millenium-old vampire who has found evidence of an old foe's evil at hand in the demolished city of New Orleans. Weary of the fight, he decides to greet the coming dawn after a night reveling in his favorite indulgences--a bottle of wine and a willing woman.
What starts as a night of sensual delights ends in a revelation of mutual discovery when Noelle quickly creeps into his heart. The ancient vampire, so jaded from life he never speaks, must now persuade her to flee the city before it's too late.
NOTE: This novellete is approximately 12,500 words long and was previously published as Silent Night.

Short, scorchingly hot. I loved it!, Wow! This short story sure packed a punch; it was really hot. I won't restate the synopsis - it's right on target. If you are looking for a quick, super hot read this will certainly do the trick. It's a stand alone story but it also left me wanting more stories like it from this very versatile and creative author. I've never read anything quite like this tale. Delilah Devlin you've hit this one out of the park! More, please.
This was a fast paced, sexy read. Loved it. Can't wait to read more about Magnus and Noelle.
