Anya Bast’s story in this anthology is called THE PROMISE. It’s a prequel to THE DEAL, (WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS… the first anthology, released in 2008), and tells Damian’s story and how/why he came to jilt Cassidy at the altar on their wedding day.
Las Vegas… it’s the town that lives up to the promise of its nickname, Sin City. A gamblers’ paradise for innocent tourists, it conceals a darker, sexual world where the ethereal and wraithlike meet to play a different game….
If there’s one thing succubus Deitre understands it’s revenge. That, and enticing men into arousing, exciting and, okay, perilous sex (for him). Beautiful on the outside, demon on the inside, she’s going to get back at the naughty firefighter in Darkness…unless he plays his cards right.
Bounty hunter Nell is a hell of a tracker. Now she’s in Vegas on the tail of the witch who dared to steal from her clan. She’s going to get the unsavory harlot through the woman’s ex-finance, and nothing about their charged encounters will be shallow, quick or friendly.
When the half-blood fae male comes to Club Darkness, Elena can’t resist acting on the mind-blowing heat coursing between them. She might be betrothed to another, but fae culture says sex with other men until marriage is most definitely foretold.
Tattoo artist Devi is the latent vampire the warlocks need to heal all wounds. But taking her power is a sexually exhausting and dangerous task requiring dark deception…and gambling on her life.

I live in Bozeman Montana, so it would be fun to see stories featuring Montana. Though if a story is good, it doesnt really matter where it takes place.

I don’t think that the actual location is important, but the way the author works it into their stories and how the depict the actual place in its clarity based on the plot lines of the story.

I love when books take place in the Pacific Northwest, but it seems that so many take place there anymore, not that that would deter me from reading a book. I adore the Pacific Northwest and hope to move there someday for the res ot my life, but I would love to see more travel taking place in books. Maybe start somewhere, and travel to Australia, then to Chicago, then to Los Angeles, then to some crazy uninhabited island with strange reason for it. LOL Too much?

I’m from Virginia, so in the U.S. I’d like to see our mountains or historical sites featured. This state has been here since the 17th century, we have more than enough locales and tales for stories.
If abroad, Africa maybe: Morroco, Algeria, Egypt, places also rich in history and mysticism.
