From New York Times bestselling author Colleen Gleason: Book Two of the internationally acclaimed, award-winning Heroes of New Vegas series.

"Sexy, violent, electrifying...[An] edgy, page-turning series...Brilliantly conceived and executed." -- Library Journal

"For those of us who like our paranormal romance on the urban, edgy side, Colleen Gleason delivers." -- Lara Adrian

“Colleen Gleason's vision of the future is dark, complex, and sharply original." -- Nalini Singh

Everything they knew is gone...

Five men emerge from the remnants of destruction with extraordinary new powers. 

They are humankind's last hope, but they cannot survive this devastated world alone.

Simon Japp's violent past will haunt him forever. But when he somehow travels through time to a dark future where civilization is all but destroyed, he sees an opportunity for redemption.

As he becomes familiar with this new, overgrown world of jungle-like cities and overgrown shopping malls, Simon is determined to help the Resistance movement against the immortal Strangers--the repressive, controlling race that has taken over civilization. He can't afford to be distracted, even by the beautiful, soft-spoken woman who haunts his thoughts.

Sage Corrigan is the product of a rigid cult that has militant initiatives to repopulate the world in order to rebuild civilization. She's learned not to trust, but there's something about Simon and his empty, haunted eyes that tug at her heart.

When they must pose as husband and wife to infiltrate the cult, they find that their staged affection is only hiding the real heat boiling beneath the facade....and when Simon must confront his past once again, he must make a decision between what's right...and what his heart desires.

The saga of Macey Gardella continues in the second volume of award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Colleen Gleason’s Roaring Trilogy...

In the dark underworld of Jazz Age speakeasies and gangsters, Macey Gardella finds herself caught up in a dangerous alliance with Al Capone. The murderous crime boss squires her about Chicago, showing her off as his moll while she struggles to fulfill her duty hunting the undead on the midnight streets.

She’s learned the brutal lesson of loss and betrayal that comes to those who live out the legacy of the Venators, walking away from her friends, co-workers, and even Grady—the intrepid newshawk who seems to dog her every movement.

But when the worst comes to pass, and the powerful Venator alliance of Sebastian Vioget, Chas Woodmore, and Macey herself stumble in the face of the insidious evil of Nicholas Iscariot, even Macey has cause to question her motives and decisions.

And when the ultimate sacrifice must be paid, who will remain to wield the stake—and who will walk away?

Praise for The Gardella Vampire Hunters

"...turns vampire stories—and romances—on their ear." – The Detroit News

"With its wonderfully witty writing, action-infused plot and sharply defined characters, Rises the Night is deliciously dark and delightfully entertaining." – The Chicago Tribune

"A tense plot line and refreshingly diverse supporting characters complete the package, giving series fans plenty to sink their teeth into--and plenty more to look forward to." – Publishers Weekly

"…Heart-stopping scenes and sexual tension. With numerous twists, [Gleason] leaves you hanging, eagerly awaiting the next installment." – Romantic Times
From award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Colleen Gleason...the final installment in the Macey Gardella: Vampire Hunter trilogy, set in 1920s Chicago.

Macey Gardella Denton has loved, lost, and made difficult, heart-wrenching decisions, but now she must stay strong as she battles the most malevolent of evils--the horrifying Nicholas Iscariot.

But even facing down the most terrifying of all undead is nothing compared to the terror happening in her personal life, with her father showing up after a thirteen year absence.

Macey can wield a stake as well as Victoria Gardella, but when it comes to those she loves...can she balance her heart with what's right?

Praise for the Gardella Vampire Hunters:

"Sophisticated, sexy, surprising!” —J.R. Ward

"One of my favorite vampire series!" —Jeaniene Frost

“Colleen Gleason’s irresistible…series is deliciously dark and delightfully entertaining.” —Chicago Tribune

“Gleason’s publishing debut turns vampire stories—and romances—on their ear.” —Detroit Free Press

"The Rest Falls Away, Gleason's publishing debut...turns vampire stories--and romances--on their ear with a decidedly dark, decidedly unsentimental Regency heroine who stakes the undead with the best of them." —Detroit Free Press

"The undead rise to great heights through Gleason's phenomenal storytelling. She creates a chilling world with the perfect atmosphere of fear and sexual tension." —Romantic Times

"Gleason keeps upping the ante with each novel, weaving the characters around her readers with each engaging conversation and narrative, every stage set of all the appropriate gothic gloom and melting beauty." —Book Fetish

"...Above all, the writing is what recommends this book most. Gleason's writing is sharp and taut, which makes for excellent action sequences, and a plot that travels quickly from the start. The writing strength alone gives me ample reassurance that this potentially plot-heavy series is in the right hands. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment." —Smart Bitches, Trashy Books
