At Le Cirque Macabre, Holly Octane bursts into flames five nights a week. The stage is where Holly feels most alive. When she’s there no one can touch her, and everyone adores her.
Brought to Las Vegas as vampire bait, Holly’s connection to the immortals is a mystery. She’s one of a kind-- traveling through time and igniting when her emotions get too hot to handle. The only people who understand her are an aunt with a hidden agenda and her fortune teller girlfriend, Rainey, who doesn’t see a future with Holly in it. Cash Logan needs Holly, but she’s not the reason he came to Vegas. The enigmatic magician seeks Blade Bennett, a vampire that has a power that he shouldn’t have--fire. A power that could determine the future of all of vampire kind. Holly’s the only one who can help Blade control his fire, but their feelings for each other are too fiery to ignore. Immortals rule the Vegas night, and not one of them trusts Cash or Blade. If Holly lets them draw her in to this world designed to destroy her, she’ll lose everything—the only family she’s ever known, and everyone who adores her. Las Vegas is her stage, and Holly is determined to set the city on fire.
Holly has always been an anomaly even in the supernatural world. No one can do quite what she does. In an attempt to take down a powerful vampire by the name of Cash, Holly’s “aunt” Lucille moves Holly, Rainey and herself to Vegas. Rainey is a powerful Seer but when it comes to seeing vampires she is a total blank. When Cash shows up in Holly’s dressing room one night they all know things are changing they just don’t know how much or for better or for worse. Lucille starts to lose her control over Holly which royally pisses her off. Holly is determined to get answers out of Cash no matter what the cost. He seems to be the only one who knows what she is. When Cash introduces Holly to Blake things ignite immediately. Holly has always had the ability to control fire but Blake is a vampire and shouldn’t be able to harness fire at all. Will what Holly learns about herself and her past bring her the peace she seeks or just create more questions? Will Cash be the end of Holly? Can Blake and Holly control their fire or will they burn Sin City to the ground? A great story with an intriguing new paranormal at the forefront.
