"The book is fabulous!"--Sherrilyn Kenyon, New York Times bestselling author of the Dark-Hunter series

"A wonderfully written story with a unique take on the paranormal."--Kelley Armstrong, author of Bitten

It was the revelation of the millennium: witches, werewolves, vampires, and other supernaturals are real. Fast forward thirteen years: TV reporter Delilah Street used to cover the small-town bogeyman beat back in Kansas, but now, in high-octane Las Vegas -- which is run by a werewolf mob -- she finds herself holding back the very gates of Hell. At least she has a hot new guy and one big bad wolfhound to help...

"Carole Nelson Douglas takes you on a wild ride to the Vegas of your nightmares--or maybe of your fantasies." --Rebecca York, USA Today-bestselling author of New Moon

Dancing With Werewolves is a mystical delight."- Alternative Worlds
  • "[T]his fantastic first of a new paranormal series might not be a shocker for urban fantasy fans...Douglas handles the premise with such spectacular style, it feels fresh...Douglas spices the action with fabulous characters: Quicksilver, Delilah's protective dog; CinSims (Cinema Simulacrums), dead celebrities recreated via science and magic; the oldest living vampire in Vegas, once a famous aviator; and Cocaine (aka Snow), a devilish albino rocker. Readers will eagerly await the sequel." (Starred Review)--Publishers Weekly

  • "In a genre that's quickly filling with authors left and right, Nelson brings a fresh and sassy voice to Delilah Street...Vegas has always been considered a bit strange, but in this alternative world, werewolves are literally running the town.

About the Author

Carole Nelson Douglas, author of more than fifty novels ranging from sf/fantasy to mystery and mainstream/romance, has written fiction full-time since 1984, after several years as an arts and women's issues reporter with the St. Paul Pioneer Press in Minnesota.

She's written seven high fantasy novels and a pair of SF thrillers, and imported some fantasy notions into her mystery writing. The Midnight Louie series features a hard-boiled Las Vegas PI whose part-time, first-furperson narration reveals him as a "Sam Spade with hairballs."With her Irene Adler historical series, Carole became the first author to use a woman from the Sherlock Holmes stories as a protagonist, for which Good Night, Mr. Holmes was named a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.

She's won or been short-listed for more than fifty writing awards, in nonfiction and the sf/fantasy, mystery, and romance genres, including several from the Romance Writers of America and Romantic Times magazine.

Carole and her husband, Sam Douglas, a former art museum exhibitions director and kaleidoscope artist, are kept as pets by four stray cats and a dog in Fort Worth, Texas. She collects vintage clothing, does a mean Marilyn Monroe impersonation, and, yes, she does dance, but not with werewolves. That she knows of.
