Wings in the Night

The Original Twilight Vampire Romances

No one was publishing vampire romance when Maggie Shayne began writing her Wings in the Night series. 

No one.

While she awaited TWILIGHT PHANTASIES'  release, author, Lori Herter's OBSESSION hit the shelves, making her Obsession Series first vampire romance series.

Maggie's TWILIGHT PHANTASIES was released shortly thereafter, which makes Wings in the Night the second vampire romance series.

And a genre was born.


Twilight Phantasies

The Thin Line between Love and Death…

In two centuries of living death, vampire Eric Marquand had learned to live with the cruel fate that had condemned him to walk forever in shadow, forever alone. Then he found the woman he knew was meant for him—and understood that to possess her was to destroy her.

Against all reason, Tamara Dey saw clearly that her destiny was eternally entwined with Eric’s and that she must not only accept but welcome the terror and splendor of the vampire’s kiss. She trembled at the thought of spending eternity in his arms, but was her trembling born of desire…or fear?


My inspiration has always been Maggie Shayne and her Wings in the Night series.

& Bonus Novella Run From Twilight

THEIRS IS THE ULTIMATE IN FORBIDDEN LOVE.

Jaded by her many years of immortality, Sarafina lives for pleasure and avoids any thought of love, with its inevitable decline into betrayal and pain. Her only amusement comes from controlling those around her, mortals in thrall to her after a mere taste of her blood. She is convinced she can break any man—until she meets Willem Stone.

Willem is as strong-willed as his name implies and more vibrantly alive than any man Sarafina has ever met. Their battle of wills leads to a desire so powerful it threatens to overturn everything she thinks she knows about herself. Forced to work with him to save Amber Lily, the only child in all of history born to a vampire, she can feel the wall around her heart beginning to fall.

But Willem is mortal and always will be, lacking the Belladonna Antigen that would allow Sarafina to turn him, to share with him her own dark immortality. And now the woman who will live forever finds herself well and truly doomed, irrevocably bound by love to a man who must one day die.

Because now he's found her soul at last, hidden in the mortal woman known as Tempest “Stormy” Jones.

Stormy has always sensed the “other” deep inside her, striving for escape, for dominance, but in the presence of the charismatic Vlad she finds herself not only battling her attraction to a man she knows is dangerous and full of dark desires but losing control of her own body as Elisabeta's spirit fights to emerge.

Now Vlad himself is torn between an ages-old love and the power of his feelings for Stormy herself. Only he can decide which woman will live and which will die—forever.

Caged!

Vixen is unlike any other vampire. A fox shapeshifter who was turned while in human form, she's a valuable curiosity to the rogue vampires holding her captive. When she's rescued by Seth, himself only newly turned, she's grateful but uninterested in staying to help him and his friends on their mission to eradicate the rogues. All she wants is to run free, to assume her fox form and revel in her wildness.

But Seth can't stop thinking about her, and despite herself, she can't stop thinking about him. Soon she finds herself allied with Seth and the others to take down Gregor, the vicious rogue leader. But with a potential traitor in their midst and Seth unaware of her animal alter-ego, the dangers facing her, body and soul, may be more than this wild child and her heart can take.


Lover's Bite

Once Bitten, Twice Shy

Before she joined Reaper in hunting Gregor's gang of rogue bloodsuckers, privileged princess Topaz was gunning for just one vamp: Jack Heart. The gorgeous con man had charmed his way into her bed, her heart and her bank account, taking her for half a million dollars and vanishing without a word.

Now she and Jack–maddeningly attractive as ever–are supposedly on the same side. As Reaper's ragtag outfit scatters, Topaz sets out to solve a mystery that's plagued her all her lives, mortal and immortal: what really happened to her movie-star mother, who died when Topaz was just a baby? With four men claiming to be her father, why has she always been alone? And what stake does Jack have in discovering the truth about her past? Topaz is sure he's up to something–but her suspicions are at war with her desires….


Angel's Pain

Briar needs just two things: blood and vengeance. The first sustains her immortal life; the second gives it meaning.

First on her hit list is Gregor, the renegade vampire who schooled her in brutality, then betrayed and tortured her. To achieve her deadly ends, Briar joins the inscrutable Reaper and his misfit gang of vampires who are also hunting her old mentor.

But once she's destroyed Gregor, she'll be gone. The group means nothing to her. Not even Crisa–damaged, defenseless, a liability in every way–the childlike vamp with whom Briar shares a blood bond. Or Reaper. Though they shared one moment of pure passion, it's not as though Briar has feelings for him.

Because Briar needs no one. She needs only to satisfy her twin hungers–ones that may ultimately consume her.
