Count Basarab Musat, his new wife Virginia, and their children, Santan and Samara, escaped the tyranny of Radu and his rogues. With danger––and Brantford––behind them, the royal vampire family have been living peacefully in Transylvania––until now.
Seventeen years have passed. Santan is a mature, wise young man, taking after his grandfather, Attila; Samara, daddy’s little girl, is a fiery temptress to be reckoned with!
The children are now of age to take the final ceremony, forever binding them into the dark vampire world. With the full transformation of his children, Basarab is almost ready to pass the crown to his son. Santan knows it’s his destiny; however, he’s hesitant, for he holds a secret in his heart that calls him away from the vampire throne. Samara, on the other hand, is determined to do whatever it takes to be the vampire ruler.
Night’s Temptress continues the story of Count Basarab Musat’s family, twisting, keeping you breathless and guessing––until a climactic ending, leaving you wanting more!

“Night’s Temptress” is descriptive, but not for the faint of heart. The twists, the turns––the opening endings––all there for more stories to come. Love it! Love it! The references back to the previous history in the “Night’s Vampire Trilogy” makes me want to reread them. Thank you, Mary M. Cushnie-Mansour, for the love of the characters, and for sharing their stories with us, your eaders.

Every time I open one of Mary M. Cushnie-Mansour’s books, I see something truly special. There are few authors I have read that seem to have that innate talent for folding a story together like that of a master chef plying their craft. Reading “Night’s Temptress” was an exhilarating experience! Life is full of real emotions and I found myself comparing the characters in this book with my own life. Samara is very much a “daddy’s girl.” Santan is wise and mature, yet defies his father’s wishes. The dynamics within Basarab and Randy’s families are interesting. Randy, although devoted to his human family, still holds lingering feelings for the life he might have had with Virginia, if it were not for Basarab. Thank you for the opportunity to once more delve into your fantastic mind and watch as a fairy tale of darkness and beauty unfolded on the pages! … Jen Sywyk

Mary M. Cushnie-Mansour weaves a web with her characters that will draw you into this spin-off of the “Night’s Vampire Trilogy.” The vampire princess, Samara, proves she is a force to be reckoned with.

Having finished reading “Night’s Temptress,” I can’t wait to read the next part. The language is lucid and flowing, and gives the reader ample room for imagination. The story has its own identity and can be read in itself, without being overshadowed by the “Night’s Vampire Trilogy.” Every character, their strengths and vulnerabilities, can be identified within our day to day lives, and this is what makes this story so alive and interesting. The description of the Scottish landscape further adds to the mystery. The best is the conclusion, which leaves the reader gasping for more––will Ákos survive to identify the one who tried to kill him? Wow! I yearn for more. “Night’s Temptress” was a great read, and it propels me further to read your other books. Please finish the story line, so your readers can reach a conclusion. (p.s. I would like to invite you to India, where you will find riots of material and plot for your work.) … Sunanda Ray
There will be vast appeal to readers who love Gothic subculture. There is infusion of enough Vampiric scenes to wholly satisfy. I loved that the author harkened back to the first three volumes, the “Night’s Vampire Trilogy,” and honed in on her original voice, continuing Count Basarab Musat’s family saga. It was a pleasure to read “Night’s Temptress.” … Brenda Wright
