When the stakes are dead -- or Undead!

Werewolf mobsters and vampires run Vegas, but that's yesterday's news for Delilah Street, paranormal investigator. What's truly fearsome is her bloody discovery of an undead evil rooted in ancient Egypt. Now, with her lover Ric fighting for life after a grim battle, the chips are down.

But Delilah is a born winner who has never let a little danger throw off her game, and she's been learning fast since she came to Sin City. Her affinity for silver is making mirror-walking a real breeze, and being forced to accept the albino rock star sorcerer Snow's Brimstone Kiss has ramped up her powers to a startling new level. With the help of her trusty uber-wolfhound Quicksilver, not to mention the orange demon parking valet Manny, Delilah is determined to solve even more paranormal secrets, and hopefully save the few innocents left in town. But can Delilah win her high-stakes gamble for life and love against ancient gods and lethal supernatural odds?

Third of the Delilah Street, P.I. Series!

Reviews of Vampire Sunrise:

"Douglas tells one heck of a good story. Delilah is a strong female lead in an urban fantasy. She's got an affinity to silver and she doesn't know where her powers come from, or even how to use them consistently. What makes her stand out among the others in this field is that she's running on instinct, fear, and a great deal of curiosity -- a trait that made her a great reporter. She gets hurt just like anyone would. She's not all powerful or all knowing. Other than manipulating silver, she's essentially normal, except for an exceptional talent of being able to think on her feet. "The series moves the character development forward with each book. There's some surprises in this one...new allies and new enemies and some reshuffling of the previous allies and enemies. The reader is left at the end of the book wondering what's going to happen next. Based on what's gone before, we'll just have to wait and see since Douglas definitely doesn't do the expected."--SFRevu

"Delilah Street is another hard-hitting, lovable series heroine with extremely relatable fears and doubts. Newcomers may find it a bit difficult to acclimate themselves to this story initially, but this tale is sure to please those craving some history mixed in with their paranormal." -- RT Book Reviews

"The latest Street Paranormal Investigator thriller combines horror, mystery, romance, and sex into an exhilarating urban fantasy that puts the sin in Sin City. With plenty of twists, VAMPIRE SUNRISE is a roller coaster doing loops with each spin accelerating the ride. Readers will enjoy following the clues, surreal and mundane, as Carole Nelson Douglas lets Midnight Louie catch a cat nap while Delilah does the sleuthing above and under the streets of Las Vegas."--Alternative Worlds

"The tension and action ramp up in Vampire Sunrise. Delilah appears to get closer to solving some of the strange occurrences of her own life. And the spicy romance between her and the sexy Ricardo Montoya continues to get stronger as the series progresses. The intrigue of this series is compelling, and each turn of the page brings something new and interesting, be it Delilah's fashion choices, her romance with Ric, the discovery of an underground Egyptian pyramid, or even Delilah's faithful wolfhound friend (who I still think is going to be more than he appears to be someday...I keep waiting!). I enjoy a good mystery and Carole Nelson Douglas has that genre down pat. Mix it in with some paranormal elements and you have a recipe for an outstanding book. I find myself already anxiously awaiting the next book in the series to see if some of my suspicions and wild and crazy guesses are even somewhat close to the mark. This series must be read in order as each book builds upon the events of the previous one, so if you have not picked up the first two books in the series, be sure to add those to your basket when you pick up this book."Bitten By Books

"Vampire Sunrise... features strong, smart, vintage clothing fashionista Delilah Street... The almost staccato-like style of Ms. Douglas' writing keeps you engaged and entertained. She makes a lot of pop culture as well as vintage movie references that fit in perfectly with Delilah's unique style. I haven't read another mystery quite like this one, the paranormal element keeps it new and fresh, yet Delilah is still solving a good, old-fashioned mystery. Additionally, questions about the true identity of her parents and information on the mysterious twin who revealed herself in the first book are addressed...As I continue reading the books in this series I continue to develop respect for Delilah. Her street smarts, intelligence and self-assurance make her a female heroine that you're sure to love."-- Best Fantasy Stories

"Vampire Sunrise is a fun paranormal romp of epic proportions. Delilah and Ric's love for one another leaps from the pages, as well as, all sorts of scary creatures. Ms. Douglas does an impeccable job of world-building and balancing mystery, romance and humor. Fascinating and scary, paranormal and urban fantasy lovers alike will love Delilah Street."--Minding Spot
